    RRR by WATANABE Jun



    RRR
    By: WATANABE Jun
    Genre: Sports
    Serialized In: Young Magazine
    Mangaupdates

    Rikitaro is a musician whose dream is to become a rock star just like Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison, but at the age of 27 that dream is fading away rapidly. Ooishi is a 3 time world boxing champion who recently retired and is now in the entertainment world, shooting a boxing reality show. These two unlikeliest of people cross paths one day but both of them think nothing of it until weeks later. Rikitaro is given one last shot by a record label to sign a deal but before that, they need him to get into better shape so that he is easier to sell. He stumbles upon a boxing gym which also happens to be the same gym Ooishi is filming his show. As fate’s wheels start to turn, neither man realizes that they will work together to train the best boxer ever, even better than Ooishi himself.

    Re: [FEATURED] RRR by WATANABE Jun

    I started reading this recently. I've only read 4 chapters so far. What attracted me to it was the art style. It looks familiar, but I can't recall reading any of the artist's other works. Anyway, the story is actually moving kind of slow, but I like the main character, so I don't mind. It seems that the next chapter will start to get into the main premise of the story.

    Same reaction: weird sense of deja vu when I saw the art. It reminded me of Saru Lock for some reason. So far it's solid, it's felt a bit like a prologue so far. Hopefully when the boxing starts, the story picks up.

    Oh my. Chapter five started out average. Same as the last few, but it ended great. I can't believe that dude punched out a woman lol What a jerk. I can't wait to see Ricky teach him some respect in the next chapter.

    That was cold man. Hardcore. Dude didn't even hesitate, just dropped her and told her to go back to the kitchen. Ricky still might be a little doughy to stand up to him. Whatever happens, I bet he puts up a good enough fight for Thunder-san to take him under his wing.

    Just read chapter 6. Good stuff. Though I thought things would have been wrapped up in one chapter. And there he goes puking again. Hopefully next chapter Ricky will get some redemption and look cool in front of all the housewives.

    Getting embarrassed in front of the housewives was epic. Made the chapter worthwhile. He'll probably get a good blow in, even if it's not enough for redemption it will be enough for Thunder to take an interest. He does seem to be at his best when backed into a corner, no?

    ROCK AND ROLL! Oh man. This chapter was awesome. I almost spit my water out when Ricky punched him in the balls lol. But WTF at the end. Real bummer.

    loooooooooooool right in the balls! I expected a body blow but dude went under the belt. And then all the hot house come and snuggle him. I loved that dumb grin on Riki's face.

    His sister dying was definitely a curve ball. Well timed too, right when things were looking up. Guess he's going to be taking care of her kid soon.

    Wow. Chapter 8 was so sad. I was fighting back tears the entire time I was reading. I love a manga that can get such an emotional reaction out of me.

    Do you guys think there will be a time-skip and Aozora will be the fighter Ricky and Thunder train together?

    A bit to melo-dramatic, but definitely good. I was fighting back tears in spite of myself.

    I think RRR is about Ricky coming of age, Aozora and boxing represent Ricky learning to be responsible.

    This seems right to be the point where the actual plot starts rolling. Prologue over, so to say.
    So, no more trying to become a rockstar from now on? This path seems to have been denied to him in all of this. Now it's probably all about he gets into boxing.
