The title of king implies grandeur or, at the very least, delusions of it. For Jing, the King of Bandits, all he has to his name are fear-mongering rumors that have spread between the cracks of civilization. Despite his infamy, he, along with his partner in crime and incurable womanizer Kir, roams the recesses of the world. Those who witness the pair with anxious hearts and minds cower at the thought of becoming Jing's next target.

But with every grand heist, it is not just mere precious treasures Jing is seeking to pry from his unwitting victims. Their undivided attention is just as valuable, showing how they ruin themselves over their foolishly prized possessions. Jing knows there is no better way to make his demands than through awe-inspiring fear—fear of the King of Bandits.

Surprised to find that no one has already written a review for this manga. Before I go into some more depth of why I enjoy and recommend this series, here's the short version. It is an episodic style, bombastic and cartoony action series that I find has it's greatest strength in the sheer inventiveness it constantly shows. For anyone looking for a relatively short series with an art style similar to something out of a square enix ps1 game, give this a go, I think it deserves more attention.

I'll go into a little bit of spoiler here but again, it's pretty episodic and not really ...

I have no words to describe how much I love this manga and its sequel. Reading King of Bandits Jing for me was like having a dream with my eyes open. It's not a revolutionary or deconstructed series, no, it's an episodic adventure demographic shonen with an energetic protagonist and his womanizing partner. Don't like shonen? Fear nothing, cuz the sequel is seinen (but nothing really change at all lol). Simple, but very cool. It's awesome, actualy.

We follow the adventures of Jing and his albatross partner, Kir, who together form a pair of thieves who can steal absolutely anything you can imagine. In each new ...
