Description:
The story of a middle school girl trying to find herself in the confusion of adolescence.

Skateboard-loving Ichiri Sanjou, nicknamed "Icchi," may look like a normal energetic kid, but whenever she sees the full moon, she is hit with a wave of emotion she cannot comprehend.

The series revolves around her learning the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira.

From the mind of Usogui, Sako Toshio.

    I've never seen a manga become this bad this quickly before.

    @kjiverx facial features def seem weird but the art is definitely not bad in the slightest. either your standards are too high or you're hyperfocusing on 1 thing too much

    Icchi is like he embodiment of innocence and life but having to face the gruel violence of each human aspect is still thrilling to see because as she matures she is still being true to what matters to her most throughout it all; family.

    Loved this at first but I'm totally bored of it now. I no longer know or care who is fighting who or why.
    He should have stuck to the initial premise and added foes with less gay abandon. The continual bad guy one-upmanship has left me with little interest in who fights next. Even the "let's explain a different martial art" palls after a while.
    I like the art style for it's originality but the fights are awful to follow, I lose track of what's happening all the time. The characters can merge as well unless they are the completely over the top ones and even then if it's just face shots...

    Woa, the starting was rough, but the manga has been getting a lot better and the recent chapters blow me away. Good manga indeed.

    Me and my friend made a Batuque subreddit! We'd really appreciate if people could join and contribute posts and comments. It's for anything batuque-related!

    Huh, didn't realize how similar the covers of Usogui and Batuque were until I saw them line up like this.

    You can try Usogui, it's much more structured.

    @a2j04vm0 doesnt change the fact that the chara design is bad and its basically only fights after fights without correlation

    Maybe this will change your mind.

    Some of the worst art I've ever seen. Facial features are just attached like a Picasso

    Man, I gotta admit that one new chapter to read each day was fucking awesome, it's going to be hard to get used to normal pacing again now, thanks for the chapters nonetheless!
