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.

Not to mention this is like one of the only dozen or so manga with a realistic martial arts depiction.

I only ...

Mixed Feelings
So much wasted potential. There are some awesome moments that'll be a treat to any combat sports fan, but ultimately the experience of reading this manga is that of being blueballed. It also feels as though the main character, Minoru, never really comes into his own. He seems to have anti-plot armor, where he wins up until a crucial moment, at which point he gets caught with some move and loses. The main villains are never confronted, the main character never really gets his concluding arc, and the rival characters pretty much never get any real action. Samart and Singhsak are awesome villains, and they ...
