[Review] Katekyo Hitman Reborn

Post by Masu on Wed May 13, 2009 11:24 pm



Does anyone else here watch or read this awesome series? It begins as a
daily life comedy, then takes a sudden serious turn and goes into the
action genre and gets amazingly epic. Its in shounen jump, but the
anime version is aimed at younger audiences, which is easily told by
the lack of blood later on after the 1st story arc (though its said
that its possibly because of having an earlier timeslot) and though it
does have humor, there's no pervy humor in the anime.

The manga however, is more violent, has blood, on very rare ocasion (so
far only 2 chapters) nudity and uses much heavier language in the
latest darker story arc, when everyone is transported 10 years into the
future to learn that their town has turned into a dark surpressed
society living in fear of the Milfiore family, enemy of the Vongola
family. Speaking of story:

Katekyo Hitman Reborn stars 12/13 year old middle schooler Sawada
Tsunayoshi, who is better known as "Dame Tsuna" (no good tsuna) because
of his lack of skills in anything. He has no physicall skills, and thus
fails at gym. Gets lower than 20's on all of his tests, and of course
like almost all daily life middle/high school shounen series, has a
crush on the school idol, Sasagawa Kyoko.

Sounds like your typical shounen manga right? Boy fails at life, Boy
likes female school idol who tons of other guys who are sports stars
and have perfect scores in school also like, boy somehow ends up with
girl? Well for no good tsuna, there's 3 things in the way of that. One,
the girl is a CLUELESS MORON. <.< >.> Two, After saving
Mirua Haru from the other local private school, she becomes infatuated
with tsuna, and openly shows it. Every. Chance. She. Gets.
But the third and reason? What would you think if you woke up and a
baby came into your house saying he was going to train you to become
the 10th generation boss of the strongest mafia family in italy? You
would say "Damn I need to lay off the booze/herb/whatever you fancy"
Well tsuna laughs, and Home Tutor "Reborn" is not amused, because hes
being dead serious. Hes been sent to japan to train no good tsuna who
excells at absolutely nothing, to become a mafia boss. And failure is
not an option!

Now you're all probably wondering, "Wait, this is a shounen
manga.....where's the super powers?" well this is what pulled me into
reborn, Tsuna has no "Super hidden powers that he doesnt know of" You
know how he fights? Reborn shoots him in the head with a "Dying will
bullet" What it does is it basically kills you. BUT, if you were
regretting not doing something before dying, you come back to life with
your "Dying will" symbolized with a dying will flame on your forehead
to do what you regreted not doing before dying. When in Dying will
mode, all your physical limiters are removed, so you are basically a
super human for five minutes (though tsuna obviously trains to extend
the duration of this as the enemies get stronger later on) The funny
thing about Dying will, you tear off all your clothes except your
underwear, and tsuna shouts "REEEEEEBOOOOOORRNNNNNNN! to poke fun at
the fact that the person who killed him is named Reborn, and the fact
that he has been reborn.




I feel as if I rambled on too much :/ Just.....lemme know if this was
too much or if I can continue on and talk about the other main
characters/story arcs/skills
