There is still one person who cares about him, Sayu, een young girl of his class whom gets a lot of attention. One day fate changes, when Sayu and Hino have to save a little girl whose mother was killed by a bokke. Hino forced, to save them, discovers a whole new personality in him...

About the Author:
Nishi Yoshiyuki, Ex-assistant of Riichiro Inagaki and Yusuke Murata (Eyeshield 21), a manga artist well-known for creating Muhyo and Roji's Bureau of Supernatural Investigation. Other works he has done: Nishitani Sensei no Daiboken, a one shot that appeared not so long ago in square jump.

[koen]Hijacking the thread to add more info.[/koen]



Heeeeeeeee's baaaaack! Mangaka of Muhyo and Roji's BSI is back for another series! This time it's called Bokke-san. Details are slim now but apparently it's about an "incident" that happened to the above protagonist and he (or she? You can never tell in manga) had a curse or something on her.

Should be interesting. Maybe Nishi will finally get the anime he deserves if it does well. Muhyo didn't get him enough recognition.

... I'm in love with the preview art already.

I was excited about Nishi getting a new series at all, but this looks incredibly promising.

Re: [NEWCOMER] Bokke-san by Yoshiyuki Nishi (Muhyo)

I was able to skim over it although I haven't read it indepth since I didn't buy the magazine. The main character showed off some sort of cat powers (i.e cat claws and jumping all over the room). I think it might have something to do with the masks that he is holding in the colour page since he was wearing the mask that looked kind of like a cat (and so if he wore the pig one he would have pig powers?).

Anyway I hope the raws come online soon since it looked pretty good.

That sounds like a pretty cool concept. A lot better than Muhyo's IMO.

I went ahead and bought the mag so I could read more indepth.

Turns out the main character Hino gets his cat powers from being a bokke, which is something like an urban legend, except he is like a human...or something like that. I guess it will be explained more in later chapters. It's also where the title of the manga comes from.

Oh and Hino doesn't speak except for random sounds and whispers to himself, which is pretty funny considering he is the main character.

I'm glad that this looks like it'll be somewhat more of a battle manga. I like sports and all but typical shonen battle mangas are my favorites. And the character design and powers in this are pretty amazing, I hope this gets a Edited Manga soon.

That's been a long time :)

I second to what you said. I enjoy reading his muhyo to roujie because of the style (the art is cool :)). I wonder how this will work out

on a sidenote: lingwe said he'll try out translating. Let's hope someone is interested in Editing it

Barba! You're not dead!

I think that the art style he is using for Bokke-san is a lot more attractive than Muhyo's.

Barba approves, i'm intrigued! I personally found ilke the first 20-30 pages really boring, but it's pretty damn good. No muhyo visually though in any way.

Never read Muhyo, but from what I've read (and seen) this looks more interesting.

I really like Nishi's drawing style, I hope some group gives this new series a try and the international community can enjoy it as well.

Muhyo never got the attention it deserved, I hope this will be as good.

This seems a little more mainstream than Muhyo was.
