How is this?  Some people seem to love it, some posted (last few posts) said it's awful, and "repetitive" which I hate.

Maybe I should give it a try, but if I already know it's going to be repetitive maybe I shouldn't even bother?

Pass, pass it! I can't stand kind of this manga, a pure idiot messing around and solve everything just by his luck, one time is fine but its repeat chap by chap.

i'm really weak to some points in this manga, won't lie something inside me just can't take some of it.

But still read it until the end. And can say its a pretty good manga but heavy in some parts.

But i'm more of a dumb shounen type of person, life is already hard enough for itself.

Great manga, but get prepared to feel alot when reading it.


Absolutely worth the read.  Gotta find more manga about police officers.



Please use spoiler tags if you talk about the ending in your comments! 

actually i was rage like fuck,


i would still castrate them, and then torture them also, and then throw them in tokyo bay...


nevertheless it was awesome read..


wish i had one

Great manga. For that, I officially include this in my "masterpiece read" list.
Oh man, it was amazing. Worth the ride, totally worth it.


EDIT: Thanks a lot Deadbeat-Scans!!

the drawings of this manga make me remember tenjou tenge

that was good manga... i like it... thanks deadbeat-scans...

Really enjoyed this manga. Finished it within a day... It touches upon a lot of societal problems with today's youth, but still paints an optimistic future. I really like all the characters, It has nice comedic elements to lighten the mood. Very enjoyable read :)

ahh.. ended.... now lets do the marathon for this... ^^ 

Wow that was such a good read, man it was emotional. It was a nice end but it certainly wasn't a pleasant journey... fuck I still can't get over some of the stuff that happened.


This is another one of those stories that will stay with me for a long long time.

A great series. Thanks for translating this!

Thank you for everyone who worked on Shibatora! It was such a good read.

congratulations on completing your first series deadbeat!!! ^^

I always assumed the hand in the end was Rika's.

Nice ending.  I wonder how alot of people came to the conclusion that Tora died at the end after looking at the raws?

...maybe because they watch/read too much Romeo & Juliet (or Shakesphere's works for that matter) so they expecting some death in the couple?

Was it just me or were the hands at the end female hands that touched her eyes? Maybe his Mothers hands? It would explain why the extra chapter included his mother....

Thanks for the ride! :-)

When I saw (end)  I thought. "Oh, that must be the end of the extra!  I can wait a couple more weeks till it's updated again"  But sadly that's not the truth.  I'm going to miss Shibatora-kun :) .  Well thanks to all the people who worked diligently so that people can read this material on this website. *acknowledging nod of respect*

Thanks to the hand...all is well with her sight. =D

Glad it ended on a happy note.

Tora-chan I'll miss you *sniff*

When it comes down to it...  Taketora's world is right back to where we started.  With a few additions and subtractions.

Oh well.  Ended nicely.  :)
