I am not sure why this has such a high rating, so I want to give a warning to like-minded readers – don’t bother with Sun-Ken Rock, if you’re looking for a good story. The only thing this manga has going for it is art, and the writing is extremely cringeworthy.

You’ve read the synopsis? And now add “and then they dance”, because that’s what happens when the main character joins mafia, cause dancing is great, right? They dance for 7 panels on two pages. This is also a gag manga somehow, and what’s the worst is that it’s not humor added to a good plot, read more

i really dont know how i feel about this manga, it started off good then the manager arc was really bad, the ban phuong arc made up for it and then the final arc was a huge mess and really bad, the ending had a chance to redeem the whole arc but instead it made it even worse.

if you read this manga you will either end up hating it or liking it, or have mixed feelings about it like me, i dont know if i would recommend it or not, but hey at least it has great art to compensate for the shit story

You got to be crazy not to enjoy Sun-Ken Rock or a child or even just a parent who doesn't like explicit things. This is by far in my top five of my favorite mangas and only the purest of eyes should be able to read Sun-Ken Rock if it was up to me,but luckily for you its not the story was magnificent I had to have read every single chapter in a 2 day span of time because of my infatuation with the plot. The art was so focused and centered but still so different that I was happy to use some styles even read more

(English is not my native language, sorry if i make any mistake.)

Sun-Ken Rock is one of the best mafia/gang themed mangas you can ever read.



It's simply a story of a gang named ''Sun-Ken Rock''. Main character is the boss, Kitano Ken.

In first volumes, you can say ''it's not a great story, but i can tolerate that.'' But when Sun-Ken Rock gang starts to grow, the story grows too. Especially after the chapter 80. You just can't stop reading after that. You always leave with a curiosity in the end of chapters. It's so well constructed and written. Well, except for the final. It's read more
