If there's anything that oldschool manga has taught me, its that Japanese love their insanity style of humour and potraying it in a martial arts manga.Despite an underwhelming story and standard-fare characters, its art and humour more than make up for it.
The story is that Noritaka is a 1st year High School tying to get rid of his middle school rep and impress the model female student.But after a series of lucky breaks which unfortunately end in a misstep causing the girl to reject him for being weak,Mortiaka must learn martial arts to survive in this school and gain the affection of the girl once again
So as its plainly obivous, Moritaka is pretty much the weak kid become strong story and as such nothing you havent seen inother manga has been introduced..The hero is a wuss,the girl is pretty much eye candy and all the opponents are douches per day types. It all pretty standard.
However the saving grace like I said is the artstyle and insane humour.Moritaka pulls no punches , apeing go nagai format of rndom pop humour with awesome caricatures of the characters.Almost every girl except the love intrest is intentionally ugly, the villains are all steroid induced muscle jockeys .The comic literally pulls foreginers as opponent. and even the artstyle is more playful with itself.Whether being an MC Hammer reference, or the fact that female lead's breast get bigger to the pleasure of Moritaka's opponents.The whole comic is built on satirizing the shonen fightng archtype.
If you can look past the lacklustre story and derivative characters,I would suggest checking it out.Its worth a note for such a carefree note of 90's manga read more
