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

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

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.

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 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

Wild Ones was the first manga that I ever completed and had me hooked after the first volume. I loved watching Rakuto and Satchie grow through the series.Although it was predictable at times, the occasional intense moment between Rakuto and Satchie was enough to spice things up and make me crave more. I also enjoyed the cute awkward moments.
All in all it was a really sweet manga in which multiple characters overcame the wounds of their pasts and learned how to move forward with their lives. There was also rivalry, comedy, and of course romance.
I thought that the ending was cute, but I read more
