Review of “Rokudenashi Blues” (So far)
While searching about looking for a good delinquent series, i stumbled upon Rokudenashi Blues. (Good for nothing blues)
Within a week i had caught up with it, i was completely hooked from the first chapter.
I found this series was a fresh breeze from the usual overpowered, effeminate protagonist fighting off a never ending flow of enemies bent on wanting to destroy the earth. This was about high school delinquents being high school delinquents, with a bit of boxing on the side.
The fight scenes were great, they were really well detailed and there were plenty of them too, and none of that “final boss” bullshit, some of the two page spreads were amazing. i also enjoyed how they were never one sided by the protagonist either, with Maeda getting his ass handed to him a couple of times.
It wasn’t just about the fights though, this manga is actually hilarious too, i actually had myself laughing out loud at a couple of parts, especially whenever Maeda and Shimabukuro would meet.
All in all i recommend this to whoever likes Shonen manga, it’s a good read, you wont regret it.
Currently, on Batoto they only have up to chapter 109, so i still have a long way to go until i reach 422, but thank you to "crazy deliquents and shit scans" for the hard work in producing more chapters. read more
