Left to himself at an early age in the slummiest parts of today’s Japan, Kiichi learns how to survive on his own. As a teenager, how can he adapt to a society whose rules he rejects? Unless he creates his own rules… Kiichi, a raw icon of strength and integrity, stands alone against the world’s injustice and becomes an unforgettable character.

At just three years old, he’s a boy that doesn’t really seem to listen to or get along with anyone, constantly getting into fights or running off to who knows where. This is troublesome for his parents who look after him, but despite the issues that come up, they do their best in raising him. This portion of the manga is more from the perspective of his parents than Kiichi himself and thus feels ...
