Vasplar, it wasn't bad, but it simply wasn't an ending. Even though I do not agree with the score, the top review on the myanimelist page for I am a Hero sums it up perfectly. I've said this before somewhere on kissmanga before finishing it or even knowing it would end like this, but as a writer, there's one thing you should absolutely NEVER do, and that's to betray your reader's expectations. And sadly, Kengo finished off his otherwise brilliant manga by doing just that.

This guy dont know how to make proper ends and make it pacefull. All things feel rushed.

Btw, outstanding art and good ideas.

I Am a Hero: a real gem that unfortunatly not many people learn to appreciate. Thanks a lot for it!

I will never forgive you for ending one of my favourite mangas like that .

Even through translation, Hanazawa's work has nuance. The main characters he writes are true to their personalities (they are somewhat based on him, after all.) He carefully refrains from indulging the reader in escapist fantasy, while also keeping the story entertaining. Good shit. Read Boys on the Run if you haven't.

I've finished his three major manga now. They always start off okay, have really strong mid sections, and end poorly. I think I'm done reading his stuff. Boys on the Run was such a disappointment in the end.
