Kohinata Minoru is a college student at a college that is popular for its sports rather than academic orientation. Although he starts out as a gymnast alongside his friend, Nana, Minoru is bullied by the higher ranked gymnasts. One evening, a karate student at the college, Mutou Ryuuji, witnesses Minoru being bullied and comes to the rescue... but his intentions aren't to save Minoru, but to drag him into the world of karate. Minoru makes new friends and learns some of their dark pasts, including a shocking death that reveals motives for revenge.

Here we have a seinen marital arts manga about a man working his way through the world of karate. As martial arts manga go, this would have to be one of my favorite. The pacing is quick, the characters interesting, and the plot believable. And something about me before I start: I'm a 1st degree black belt in Taekwondo. Now then, onto the review:

Story: As I said, it doesn't stay in one place for too long. When the main character has beef with someone, the conflict is resolved without lingering in one place for 100 chapters (I'm looking at you Bleach!) During the well drawn read more

Short answer, not worth your time.

If you're reading it for the main character for reasons listed below the spoiler section he just isn't worth reading through the 428 chapters released so far.

Long answer

My main gripe is that the main character doesn't improve enough, throughout all 428 chapters I've read so far he hasn't won a single important match(Usually the final match in a tournament)

By the time he leaves college/university he hasn't got a single achievement, it's so funny.

In those important matches when he really needs to pull a in no matter what he just fails, he can pull out all the flashy read more

As a great fan of action-oriented manga's and especially those influenced by a martial art. I came across Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru. While excited by the gaze upon its genres and summary, was I eventually pleased to read this manga?

If there's anything that bothers me about this manga, it's the focus. Though it has the ability to grasp the reader and involve it with its action and dialogue. It does so only rarely. You have a story about a gymnast who, with a tough and flexible atletic body, somehow becomes involved with karate and the karate club. The story seems a little weird at first read more

I'm writing this review because I've never written one before and I really like this manga. Btw this is being writing by someone who is a 1st Dan in Goju Ryu style karate.

I'm currently reading this manga and I am up to date with it too. I rated it 8 (very good) overall because I feel that it's really interesting and quite accurate too. Plus it's quite helpful when you want to try something new on who you're practicing kumite with :)

The storyline is also good - a gymnast who gets bullied and starts to learn karate. One can easily get intrigued as to read more
