Description: At the age of sixteen Ryo Narushima was a genius and looked to have no trouble of getting into Tokyo University and joining the elite of society. However, that summer something cracked inside Ryo's head. With a small knife he brutally murdered both of his parents only leaving his sister alive and cowering in a corner. It is at this grotesque incident that our story begins.

Note: At volume 20, the series changed publishers, which created a restart of the chapter numbers.

Starting from chapter 61 in volume 26, the first chapter from when the series returned from a long hiatus, the series has been completely written & drawn by Tanaka Akio. While Hashimoto Izou did write the series in the beginning, he had been doing less and less work starting from volume 4. Tanaka & Hashimoto reached a settlement and Shamo continued.

Just when I was excited to see this series was completely translated I see Wildfang project's name.....

Both of the author and artist to blame on how the manga become.

The end of this manga is the same as Ryou's existence in the end, lacking sustenance.

 

Is was a fun ride while it lasted at least.

after reading the ending i feel fucking betrayed. 

The 2 retard duo turned it into comedy manga and reversed all progress that was done.

 

Garbage 1/3 end really

What the hell is this

wow that ending was awful

The change of authors happened after the volume 26 was published, which is in the middle of the tournament between those karate guys and the team of Toma, so yes, the moment when Tanaka Akio took control of this story was after the China arc but it was when the next arc was about to end. I did not liked too much the two final arcs of this story but I don't think that the change of authors was entirely to blame as at least in the Toma arc the original author was still working in this manga so the final arc may have been different but I do not think that it would have been much better but maybe his plan was to end this manga in that arc as they spent a whole bunch of chapters building Toma to be the complete opposite of Ryo, maybe he was going to be his perfect nemesis, his slayer but in the end he ended being a total waste of chapters and nothing more.

Oh I see. 

It means that ballet bullshit fall started when the previous author was still active working on that manga.

 

Because after China it felt like the author made a rollback of 100 chapters and Ryu had the power level of "just left the prison".

 

Honestly speaking I was not able to finish this manga because I was dissappointed that Ryu did not become ultimate fighting monster after the defeat of jumping monkey lol

 

I am still wondering whether

Spoiler

I will recommend people this manga as an example of an author shitting all over his work, a work that was incredibly good, Tanaka Akio you did a horrible work with this, that development towards that ending of yours seems like a hate work, just stay away from a story if all you have for it is contempt.

Spoiler

Oh.

Do you by chance know in what chapters that happened?

Because if it happend after china arc then that explains everything

Damn, I thought he'd at least end up having a rematch against Sugawara.

The last couple of arcs were pretty boring.

Thanks to all the people who worked in this manga and many thanks to the authors of this work, I am really going to miss this story and even if I did not liked the last two storyarcs too much I can say that I am pleased to having read this manga. Some things that I would like to say before saying good bye to this story:

 

Spoiler

I loved shamo from beginning to end but the ending was not that great

Spoiler

Spoiler

I wonder if Sugawara ever fully recovered?

Anyway thank you Illuminati Manga, WildFangProject and Tanaka Akio, this manga will be missed, Shamo started all way back in 1998 when I was still a kid..

Guys, please do use spoiler tags.

CHRIST. That was one of the worst final arcs I've ever read.

 

It should have ended with the China arc.

Ooo Kill Em. I'm gonna have me some catching up to do.

Stuff happened but at least I've managed to put it in my 'Completed' list. Thanks to everyone who worked on this manga.

After reading this manga I have a feeling that japanese people have serious problem with themselves. It's like they forcefully create more and more degenerated things just to "happilly forget"  real world problems that surround them. Well, it's not like they are alone in doing this...

Try loading with a different server its the cog wheel next to page numbers. 

Dammit Wildfang project dropping 2 volumes just like that, thanks a lot, i was not expecting this.

BTW vol 33 is not loading for me.

It's somewhat logical, at least. Not too bad. I'm alright with the writing and the story -- The manga is still worth reading.
