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?

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.

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

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) ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
