Synopsis

"Middle Edo Period—One state becomes the gathering place for sinful martial artists, who believe in nothing other than power, know of no other way of life other than letting oneself go wild in the battle. That state is the Unabara State, the 'Haunt of Demons'..."

Washitzu Naosata, the ruler of the powerful state, Unabara, is looking for his successor. He calls upons all his 31 sons, and tell them to search for whoever they believe to be the strongest martial artist of all. Each of their chosen martial artists then are to fight against each other until only one is left standing. Whoever is the winner, whoever has the strongest martial artist in nation by his side will become his successor...

Out in the midst of the mountain is the doujo of the "Daigame Ryuu" (Giant Tortoise Style). There lives Kurogane Gama, the son of the legendary swordsman, Kurogane Jinsuke, who is believed to be able to kill 1000 martial artists in Unabara. There, one of the son of Washitzu Naosata, Washitzu Naoshi, comes in search of the legendary swordsman, only to find that he had gone missing several years ago. After seeing the battle style of Gama, he instead chooses to ask Gama to come with him. Wanting to become stronger, Gama agrees to his offer, and that marks the beginning of Gama's battle to become the strongest of all ...

Gamaran, while following the typical shounen formula of someone yearning for power who happens to have a mysterious/famous father, has much more going on underneath the surface than appears at first glance.

Story 9:
The story itself seems very familiar at first, as a young boy tries to become a martial arts master in order to defeat some grand arch-enemy and even enters a competition to try to hone his skills. However, the setting of Gamaran adds another layer to this much-repeated story and draws the reader back in time with many historic subtleties to a time when swords ruled Japan and martial arts were the read more

The story is quite original, a martial arts competition where fighting styles are pitted against each other to find out which style reigns supreme. The art however, is not something to be bragged about. The faces are quite similar and emotions could use some working on. The characters however, are very original and suggest that the author should change the art to enhance the enjoyment of the storyline. The enjoyment was okay, but felt that it could make a bigger impact.

The manga is quite fast, things constantly happen and it doesn't feel like it's getting slower and boring, it's moving forward and it doesn't waste time with useless training for a long time just for one fight, the mangaka understands that people don't read an action manga for the training but for the fights, and there are a lot of them.

The action is great as the fights seem to be realistic, they're fast and decisive, they don't keep on for many chapters and are well executed. It also helps that the fights are diverse enough, not only between the different characters but the same characters read more

Before I start: This is my first review, so it’ll be not something perfect. If you read it, I want you to feed me back so I can write next one better.

I can desribe Gamaran with only one phrase: A complete blast of action. No unnecesarrily complex pilot, no emotional breakdowns, only ever-changing action and fighting. It makes Gamaran the apex of perfection in shounen action/fighting series in my opinion. When I see “action” and “fighting” in genre section, I want to see some real fighting but most of modern shonen “fighting” series are full of other things than fighting. But Gamaran is sincere; it’s read more
