Description:
Meet Shooto. He's a bit vertically-challenged. He also wants to be a hero. But guess what? Midgets can't be heroes! Ha! So he becomes a villain instead. Sort of. Not really. But w-wait a minute here, why is he so heroic if he's supposed to be the bad guy? And what about the so-called good guys? Why are they so evil?

The Unchain is the high note of the story, it’s sad that his role was limited in the subsequent arcs.

it started out really good but my god the unchain storyline was awful. just killed my interest in the series.

Way before My Hero Academia, there was this awesome series!

@Hobnobs it's got several storylines, maybe try another one if the first one wasn't your thing? Or is it the art style? It grows on you fairly quickly, once you understand how amazing the story is. ?

@Zael Funny you should mention that, a friend of mine a couple years ago on dfo recommended both Knight Run and Keyman to me except I couldn't get into Knight Run.
Avatar
@Hobnobs, indeed I have, and it was excellent. There's quite some twists in "Knight Run" as well.

@Zael Have you read Keyman: The Hand of Judgement? It's got a more western vibe to it. I never got around to finishing it but I would recommend it from what I've read of it. Actually seeing as it is fully scanlated now I think I'll go finish it right now.

After reading comments like @Dainty 's I bought into it and read it, but overall was pretty disappointed in this. If we include western comics, this trope has been done exponentially better. (Take "Irredeemable" or "Invincible" as shining examples.)

7/10 (Barely)

It was fun. If wasn't for the drama and love triangle shit. i would not jump right way to the last chapter just to see the fucking ending

The comedy was good, but the drama was shit.

I also remember this one and I grew fond it. If anything, I believe the ending was a bit rushed, but no train wreck. But it could also be, that I was just sad back then, that it came to an end after just 60 chapters. The manga is good enough to say, you won't waste your time by reading it.

I remember this one, still one of the best "the hero is a villain" manga, not that there's a lot of those...

But yeah, adorable hero and quality cast, really earns it's moments. Definitely worth a read if the concept appeals to you!

A great take on the "post-hero society" manga. Could stand to be a little more focused, but overall its 8/10.

The Jackies alone make this worth reading

Its awful, not worth reading

The rest of the chapters (47 - 60) were done by Silent Sky, hence the missing chapters.
