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

Save yourself from a heartbreak as this manga has a rushed ending that may enrage you.

This manga had a lot of potential, but there wasn't a lot of character development later into the manga. The pacing is a bit off and we didn't grow with any of the other characters besides the lead. I felt like the main girl wasn't truly necessary to the story later on. Now that I think about it, none of the supporting characters really has enough time to grow on a reader and appear to simply be there. I can't criticize the move to much as the series was read more

Probably the only one where I will give it an even rating across the board but I think this is accurate.

The story is actually quite cool, being a fan of boxing myself it was nice seeing a newer boxing manga because they are rare. Aside from the ending which I didn't like, the only other aspect of this that I disliked was how literal they made the techniques. For instance they would make it so the MC struggled against an enemy that he could easily defeat only to have him win after 'figuring out' something he already knew, or they had the MC pretend 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

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
