In a bleak city where gangs hold more authority than the law, Yukio "Yuki" Kousei and his close friend Tetsushi "Tetsu" deal fake drugs in the back alleys to earn some cash. However, with a chronically ill little brother in need of hospitalization, Yuki and Tetsu set their sights on a vault located in the office of the Seidoukai—a well-known yakuza group—in hopes of acquiring a large sum of untraceable money.

Their plan does not pan out, but Yuki catches the interest of the young boss, Kazutaka Hyodo, who promises to take care of his brother's hospital bills and let them go unpunished. But as all deals come with a price, Hyodo tells him to come to his office alone once a week—without fail. With his brother's health as his first priority, Yuki accepts without hesitation and begins to keep his end of the bargain, all while tension brews between Seidoukai and a rising gang thirsty for power.

Acid Town introduces several characters that, while being seemingly non-related, are all connected through a complex web of present and past relationships. The usage of time in this manga is heavy talking about events even before the main character was born. Those who like linear storylines with ...

Determined to do whatever it takes to cover his ailing little brother's medical bills, Yuki and his friend Tetsu get caught trying to break into the local yakuza family's office. Hyodo, leader of the Seidoukai, however, is surprisingly willing to let them go unpunished and, what's more, even offers to take care of the hospital bills from now on. He has only one condition: Yuki, without fail, has to show up at the office once a week. Yuki accepts the offer - and his duties at the office turn out to be meaningless. Sitting around and playing chess, Yuki can't help but start to ask ...

Preliminary (26/? chp)
Story - Really intriguing, involved storyline with compelling main characters. This story is a step above the usual ‘I like this guy…..there’s some complications and misunderstandings but then we eventually get together’ manga. It’s a plot-heavy, romance-light drama – but the romantic elements meant more to me when they do appear, as I was more invested in the characters.

It’s set in a quite gritty urban landscape in a world of gangs and crime, in a city that has been affected by some as yet unspecified environmental calamity – which provides an extra note of underlying background tension.
The main character Yukio and his friend ...
