First time writing a review,and this is based by "what I feel when reading this manga" so maybe it won't be same for others ( ' v ' ); Sorry for messed up grammar,but hope you'll be able to understand my review.
Story (7) :
So,the main story of this manga is
Yoshito Fuji,a high schooler that lived by himself after the death of her mother,suddenly met his self-claimed oniwaban (a ninja-ish bodyguard or so),Sabimaru Shibuya.
Apparently he's ordered by Fuji's father to protect him since he'll be the heir of the big Inukai group (owned by his father),even though he's a concubine child. At first,Fuji
kept refusing Sabimaru,claiming that he doesn't need to be protected by someone from his father,who had abandoned him and his mother (and that he doesn't want the inheritance),but well,eventually this oniwaban managed to get into his life (due to Sabimaru's forcing character lol) This manga consist of daily life of Fuji and Sabimaru,as they meet many assassin and friends.
The typical "master and bodyguard" is kinda maintsream,so I'd give it 7 (though I'd like 7,5 since it's not exactly the normal "master and bodyguard" lol)
Art (9) :
I like the art very much (more like it's the reason I picked it in the bookstore lol)
It's tidy,clean,and the facial expression is so lively (And so cute in funny moment).The characters looks like how they're supposed to be in their ages (and gender),the paneling and background is good too.
Character (8) :
What I love the most from this manga,the characters are likeable,whether it's the main characters,the assassins,or the side characters (well yeah,there's some I don't like,but there's kinda affection for them too lol).
The combination of Fuji and Sabimaru always made it fun,because Fuji is your typical "serious and model student" type,and Sabimaru is the opposite,the easy going,friendly,loveable type (and he's so protective for Fuji that Fuji is sometimes annoyed by it). I can feel the characters' development too,they just doesn't stay that way,there's change in them.
But since there are many characters like them in others manga,I can't exactly give it 10/9 hahaha.
Enjoyment (9) :
So far there are 4 volumes published in my country,looked for more info and yeah,can't even find more info about characters,so nope,no scanlation yet.
But really,this manga got almost everything I want,loveable characters,light but fun plot,good art,etc. And a slight shounen-ai hint,but that's just because I'm a hardcore fujoshi,it's actually normal,okay.And Sabimaru's affection for Fuji got reasons.
I always find myself picking this book,re-read it from the first page and still enjoy it very much.
Really,if this book is avaible in your bookstore,try it :D
Wouldn't really suggest you to follow the series,but well,who knows,maybe you'll enjoy it as much as me too.
I wonder why nobody scanlate it yet,is it not that popular in japan? :I or nobody has yet to share the raw?
Though I will prefer it if you buy it rather than just read it online (in case it's already avaible in your country).
