Such a waste if this manga no longer translated.
This is one of great manga that I've read in my whole life. Dark yet educational.
It's 43 volumes already ><

Extremely heavy manga.

Don't read this if you're in a bad day, because you will be in a bad mood after, some chapters are very hard to read, because they are very realistic.

It's actually a great and interesting manga where you can see how humans can ruin everything, but it's not for everyone.
Would not recommend it for readers under 20 years old.

That manga sure is heavy, I won't rate it because I find it horrible however it's good at what's aiming for.
Objectively, it's very good
Subjectively, I hate it.

This manga is amazing and hope the editors come out with the rest of the chapters as soon as possible. GREAT JOB GUYS!!!

this last arc was amazing, 3 girls with 3 different endings. It was really nice to see that the author can pull bad endings and bittersweet ones too.

Can't believe this is back on track! Thank you.

70 chapters in and I'm starting to see what kind of a person the author is
he must be like that one guy everyone had back in school, underachiever, unsociable, always brooding in a corner, always undermining everyone and everything

in this manga so far, every character has been a miserable loser or asshole
at first it was kind of interesting, how unorthodox it is
but now it is just plain trite and boring
because life is not so extreme
and at the end of the day, this story is just venting of a guy who is emotionally stunted/had unfulfilled business back in his youth

I think you kind of overestimating the author. This manga is clearly just 90% research and 10% the author. He probably knew a shark loan and the guy just told him the more interesting stories. Theres just TOO MUCH content in this manga, too much detail, is impossible for a single person think all of this alone or with a small group. If I would bet, the author is just a nerdy guy who knows how to make his research.

Or this manga is just a lobby from anti-pachinko ativists. Because most of the arcs could be solved if people just didnt play this fucking game.

Yo, I live in Japan and this s*** is real. I've met women who had to sell their body to feed their kids or pay rent while their dirtbag boyfriend/husband twiddled their thumbs. Casinos and gambling are the most popular activities amongst the elderly (by the way, fake gambling machines are in arcades so children can easily develop a gambling mindset). I lived in the countryside and there was a pachinko place every 3 miles or less. I've met high-end Yakuza and the people that borrow money from them to run their businesses.

This is all real stuff. Life in Japan is still easier than in the US but there are a ton of problems that are swept under the rug. The point of this manga is to show how the country isn't all sunshine and rainbows. I learned that from other people and things I've witnessed. This manga is just another reference and research tool.
