Take Isamu is an elitist 6th grader who looks down at his peers because he is the best at everything he does at school, from looks and smarts, to his luck with girls and his abilities as an athlete. He considers himself to be in the top percent of his age group and is incredibly bored with interacting with the so called normal people. A new student, Kaname Moka, transfers into his school and as she is fairly pretty, Isamu asks her out.

Moka mishears what he says and thinks he wants to challenge her, as she grew up boxing. In fact, Moka is an amazing fighter and can even take down 5 middle school boys at once. Although Isamu can’t stand her violent personality and she can’t stand him for having so much pride, they start to grow attracted to each other. But then Isamu finds out that not only is Moka more athletic than him from all her years of boxing, she's also much smarter than him. Will he able to get over his overly sensitive pride and dive into a romantic relationship?

First of all, sorry for my bad english and forgive me for any grammar errors.

Well, I'll write this review in a general perspective of the piece. Buyuden is a normal boxing manga. It has all the elements of a shounen/martial arts: A typical highschool boy gets to know some way that might make him stronger, and this simple desire is what keeps him moving forward.

But this had some new points that I have never seen in any boxing/martial arts manga. Well, the first one is that Take Isamu, the protagonist, wants to learn boxing only because he met a cute girl (Kaname Moka) read more

I’m not sure if starting a manga about boxing in these times is a really good idea from Takuya Mitsuda. This sport clearly lost the glory it had before, same for its popularity. If it had begun it in the ’80s or ’90s, maybe this manga would have encountered a very different destiny. But since almost no one cares about boxing anymore, it’s predictable that no one will care about a new boxing manga—besides the fan of Major I suppose. But against all expectations, the fact that no one cares about it doesn’t mean it’s bad at all. Believe me, this manga is worth it.

I have never felt atractted to any boxing theme mangas. However Buyuden was different. The story begins in a simple way (boy meet girl and later he follow the girl's doing beacause he likes her and admires her), but it catchs you with his graphics and the story development.

The first thing I like is the graphics, they are nice, a good example of shounen manga. What I like about the graphics is that not all the characters look like an Hercules, with muscles in every inch of their bodies. I know is obvious they're not like that because many of their characters are children. But read more

The story is typical, weak boy, meets girl, event, boy wants to get stronger(Nartuo smile with hands behind head).

Art is similar to Ippo, it has got this old fashioned style. Not as dated as Ranma, but a maybe one step above.

Perhaps my biggest grip are the characters; they feel like cards board cutouts of heros/heroines of a B rated action flick.

I started reading Buyuden after being recommended from Holyland, and boy there is a huge difference. This manga is not even close to being like Holyland. It still retains alot of its shonen characteristics. So if you are looking for shonen, feast on read more
