Sachie Wakamura just lost her mother, and her estranged grandfather has shown up to take care of her. The only problem is that Grandpa is the head of a yakuza gang! Too scared to join her new family, Sachie tries to continue living her normal life. She can't run far though, since one of the most popular guys in school is part of her grandfather's gang and her new protector. No one at school knows about Rakuto's hidden life, and soon Sachie finds herself falling for her bodyguard. But she's the granddaughter of Rakuto's boss, and he can never show his feelings for her.

The beginning of this series is very.....unoriginal, so to speak. Girl's mom dies, girl goes somewhere cool, girl meets a stoic guy, stoic guy falls for girl. Can you name a few that start off like that?..No? Well, I can name tons!

BUT, the thing that makes this manga great is how its executed and I think the author does that very well.

Story: 8/10
I docked 1 point off for being unoriginal and another for all the fillers. However, I love the story very much so. All the other 8 points go to how much I love this story. I think the major twist in the plot read more

I'm writing a review for Wild Ones because it had become one of my all time favourite manga.

The story starts of like any other series, Sachie became an orphan because her mother died that's why her grandfather whom she'd never met decided to take care of her. Her grandpa is a Yakuza leader, being a Yakuza's grandaughter she was assigned a bodyguard named Rakuto. Then eventually as all shoujo series they developed a feeling for each other. There is nothing new about this series but the romance between the main characters is great. The circumstances of their romance is bittersweet. Rakuto being a bodyguard read more

Arakure aka the wild ones is a good series that shows that reusing ideas can be done well.

Story:9/10
Well for story its already done before as we see the main lead looses a family member and is taking in by a other relative. But I think that the part when she realize he is the leader of the Yakuza is just awesome. The way how she needs to adapt that she is part of it really stands outs as original. It also has some really funny and clever moments which I like. So story while its overuse, it did well.

Art:10/10
The art is well read more

I dunno how helpful this review will be but I just had to write one since I enjoyed the manga so much (as you can see I gave it the perfect 10 score) :) I think that the proof of a really good manga is when the reader becomes emotionally invested in what they're reading. I really liked this manga because of the range of feelings I felt when reading it..one moment I was crying and the next I was laughing, then feeling frustrated (read it and you'd know why). It's the kind of story that makes you happy and scream kyahhh!! I think read more
