    [Recommendation]Karate Shoukoushi(manga)

    Now I like martial arts manga. I liked Tough, Baki, and Shamo. Even more unrealistic series like Breaker and Veritas are pretty good.


    Karate Shoukoushi is for a more general audience but it doesn't suck, which is surprising.

    It's also surprising that the author keeps this many side-characters in a show that really only revolves around 3 of them.


    This series is good because of one character in particular: Samart.


    Now Muuto(the badass) is good, he's fun to watch and interesting to fight. But the whole side story with Samart, the revenge plot, the tournament, all of it is really a better story than Muuto or Kohinata's journey.


    Anyway, if you like Martial Arts series it's worth a shot.



    (Trying to recommend a manga/anime a week from now on).

    What a dumb bitch.



    OT: Read the first chapter after you suggested it. Not a bad start, but not much I can say about it seeing as how there are 300+ chapters out so far. Plan on picking it up and reading it some more.

    I know this sounds odd, but really the first 50-100 chapters are kind of "fluffy".

    They are important and set up a lot of the stuff, but around 150 you can skip through chapters pretty quickly.
    (most fighting manga aren't that big on words).

    I have been reading for like ages, but I think this manga has 500chap. and they are taking their time translating it. Not sure if true.
    Regarding the manga itself is great, they don't focus much on Samart now, and with the current tournament, lots of the characters "disappeared".
    They could either hurry this part or develop other characters at same time IMO.
    A solid 5/7 xD

    Lol that 5/7 meme, cmon man.


    Anyway, I'm liking the 3+ chapters a week though. Same thing tough used to do, very good for reading this stuff since fighting manga doesn't take a lot to read.


    (though I wish they'd cut down the 4+ chapter released on Helk, that thing is hard to read.)

    Oh, that manga. I actually read it but stopped at this chapter where this sword thingy club wants to take a member from the Karate club. You guys should try Sun-Ken rock (if you haven't read it yet). Its action is the bomb
