Rikitaro is a musician whose dream is to become a rock star just like Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison, but at the age of 27 that dream is fading away rapidly. Ooishi is a 3 time world boxing champion who recently retired and is now in the entertainment world, shooting a boxing reality show. These two unlikeliest of people cross paths one day but both of them think nothing of it until weeks later. Rikitaro is given one last shot by a record label to sign a deal but before that, they need him to get into better shape so that he is easier to sell. He stumbles upon a boxing gym which also happens to be the same gym Ooishi is filming his show. As fate’s wheels start to turn, neither man realizes that they will work together to train the best boxer ever, even better than Ooishi himself.

A manga that captivated me enough to read 70 chapters in an afternoon.

RRR is a seinen, shounen-like, drama boxing manga. Rikitarou is RRR's protagonist--a 27 year old aspiring rockstar. After a tragedy happens relating to his sister, Riki takes on the responsibility of raising his sister's son.

Mixed Feelings
While this is a manga thats undoutbably mediocre at everything it does, i cant help but feel satisfied with it. The characterization outside of the main character and 1.5 other characters is terrible, there are only 5 notable fighters in this series that centers around boxing, the fights themselves are nothing special, there are many boring plotlines, and the art is 'fine'. But there is just such a soul to this manga. Its not a boxing manga in the traditional sense but moreso a story about a man who happens to box, just as a means to an end, and theres something heartwarming in that. ...
