I never have written a review to a manga before and I never tought that I would write one, but after i finished sun ken rock i felt like I have to.
The art of the manga is just incredible and I liked the story overall. There was an arc which I didn't really liked but that was compensated with the arc that followed.

And thanks to the ecchi, the female characters are pretty shitty, they have 2D ...

It´s actually embarassing how bad the overall story is , character motivations change out of nowhere and it´s overall just made so that Boichi can flex his 10/10 art ,If you want to read a good manga with a very strong story this isn´t it.

The characters in here are mediocre , there is 0 development and they stay has simple stereotypical ...
