Impression: This is about a teenager of a certain school located in the vicinities of a red light district. As such the school feels the students need protection and they decide they need to get Tiji-kun, a rumored strongman who is known as the strongest person in the area. It turns out to be the main character and he wants to hide his identity as Tiji-kun from everyone but this isn’t the case as his identity gradually gets leaked out to the people around him. The premise feels a little uninspired to me as I didn’t feel much freshness from it but the way the plot is executed is done decently enough. At some point it feels like I missed an entire chapter as certain events happen so suddenly and without any warning even though it I’ve been reading it in proper sequence. It’s an okay series but it doesn’t really offer anything particularly interesting. For a better version of this kind of plot I’d recommend Holyland for a slightly different flavor and Shamo for a much darker and twisted taste altogether.
