Description:
The plot of the series revolves around Mankichi Togawa, who at the start of the series is a single delinquent student with one dedicated follower. Like many later iconic shonen protagonists, Mankichi's power is his ability to appeal to the others around him who join his cause (sometimes only after first losing to him in a fight). Join Mankichi as he fights other delinquents, dangerous criminals, and even juvenile detention camps!

Historically, this is Weekly Shonen Jump's first major hit, the title that got their magazine to sell millions. The authors of both Saint Seiya and Fist of the North Star have both stated in interviews that Otoko was their inspiration to get into the manga industry, and it was one of the first shonen manga to get its own anime. While it may seem insignificant now, nearly every Shounen Jump manga out there owes its existence to Mankichi.

Is this series Shonen Jump's first long-running series?
Or would that be Go Nagai's Harenchi Gakuen?

Either way, it's definitely one of the first, which is pretty awesome. Good to see it being translated. I hope to be able to read the entire thing at some point.

...A reminder that most of manga as we know it now didn't start 'till some time in the the 70's.

How should I say it—looking at the first few pages, the young weeb in me screams, "This is just a comic, not a manga!" (Even though everything about that statement is wrong XD)



I don't get what you're trying to say even. Manga is just a category of comics based on where it was made. Art style, story, anything that supposedly is what "makes manga a manga", that's all just trends and tropes that happen to be popular. If anything I'm happy older stuff like this that DOESN'T feel super cookie cutter and use those trends/themes, are finally getting translated.
