Riku experienced a lot of pain and tragedy in his early life. After his father's death, a former-boxer Yakuza man taught him how to do a basic punch, and that punch saved his life when he had to defend himself from his mom's drug dealer. He ended up taking the drug dealer's life, marking him as a killer. Criminals continued to come after him, leading to more tragedy for the people who attempted to care for him. All of this drove him to ask that same former boxer to teach him to become stronger, which led him to a rundown gym, his door to the world of pro boxing!

As always, the vultures are already reviewing and trying to kill any interest towards this series.-

To counter these underated reviews, i shall post my own opinion that favors this series.

One should notice that instead of "unneccessary shock value", this manga is flooding with hope and kindness. The kid indeed has a sad life during the start, but you can already see stuff happening for him, and as you read forward you have unexplainable desire to know what happens next in this thorny and long path of Rikudo.

As of writing these, there has already been at least 3 noteworthy characters for the story and I can't read more

One of the best boxing manga I've seen in ages.It shows an impeccable history and scenes of very good fights like a good manga should be.
I believe by having a heavier theme , being seinein , does not attract much readers , but the way the story unfolds leaves the person involved in the plot.
A reading that I'm really enjoying it and recommend it. For now I'm in the waiting more chapters.

If you found Rikudou after reading a different boxing series you have probably realized from the synopsis that Rikudou is going to be dark.

And if you are now reading reviews, wondering whether or not you should read Rikudou, first consider what you're expecting from this series.

Are you looking for a boxing manga that has the same "Give it everything you've got" feeling like in Hajime no Ippo or maybe something like Ashita no Joe? If you are, then you need to understand that Rikudou is going to be a little bit different from them.

The first thing to understand about Rikudou is that read more

Read the first 2 chapters and decide for yourself it's worth reading through an edge-fest. There is no good writing here, just careless edginess and shock value for cheap attention.

A kid punching his dead father's body after he hung himself. The same kid was with his mom when she saw her drug dealer, dropped to her knees in an instant and started sucking him off in front of her son and to top it off the (10 year old looking?) son punched the drug dealer to death after he went crazy and tried to kill the kid.

It's edge in the purest form read more
