Opinion: While I’m really enjoying this series I have a lot to say and it will include some spoilers but I will mark the spoilers! So this series is actually super unique as it was made in the 70’s!

Hands down my favourite thing about this series is the art. It obviously reminds me of another classic older series Mars. I will admit Mars is much better in art and in story, it’s hard not to draw a comparison what with rich bad boys on motorcycles dating homeless studious heroines. The art is super unique and animated but it can get a quite scrambled to see from time to time. It definitely feels more rough than current manga.

The plot is fun and super stereotypical. Snobby delinquent rich boy rebels by leading a motorcycle gang. The heroine is a soft spoken studious Cinderella who is abused by her adoptive aunt and cousins. While many played out tropes occur it goes down a lot smoother understanding these are where tropes started. I’m excited to see where this goes! I’m on volume 3 of 26 and it’s already over the top dramatic so I have no idea where it will end up.

CW Rape/Spoilers:

I really needed to add this to the review because it’s by far the worst plot twist and so unbelievable. In the first volume (or early second) a rival female orders the male leads old gang to gang rape the heroine. And they do. And for some reason the heroine continues to the third volume not realizing she was raped? And she suddenly starts vomiting? Because she is pregnant? What?

I just needed to add this because I was so incredibly confused I was messaging my group chat while I was reading. It plays out so ridiculously there’s no trauma at all despite the entirely wild traumatic experience.

That being said all this has happened in 3 volumes of 26. If you’re not a fan of wild drama, and I mean WILD DRAMA, then this is definitely not for you.
