Synopsis

Itsuki Minami needs no introduction—everybody's heard of the "Babyface" of the Eastside. He's the toughest kid at Higashi Junior High School, easy on the eyes but dangerously tough when he needs to be. Plus, Itsuki lives with the mysterious and sexy Noyamano sisters. Life is never dull, but it becomes dangerous when Itsuki leads his school to victory over some vindictive Westside punks with gangster connections. Now he stands to lose his school, his friends, and everything he cares about. But in his darkest hour, the Noyamano girls come to Itsuki's aid. They can teach him a powerful skill that will save their school from the gangsters' siege–and introduce Itsuki to a thrilling and terrifying new world.

Air Gear is a popular manga series created by Oh! Great (Ito Ōgure) that revolves around the world of Air Treks, high-tech rollerblades that give their users enhanced speed and agility.

One of the most significant strengths of Air Gear is its dynamic and visually stunning artwork. Oh!

Mixed Feelings
Air Gear is a sports manga with maneuvers that scales exaggeratedly for action, this ends up being a problem and a quality. But let's go by parts.

Air Gear is one of those series that had a lot of potential but failed miserably. I already put reviews for the anime (which was really good because that was the best part of the series and after that it goes downhill) and I read through the manga many times. So here is my review

Story: 4

Air Gear's story goes from setting things up very nicely to failing miserably. The arcs that the anime went through were the best parts of Air Gear but then after that it fails. However there were some interesting things such as Sora's betrayal however there is a lot of things ...
