I was disappointed by Wild Adapter vol. 1, though I'm told it gets better in later volumes not available from Tokyopop yet. Kubota is Sociopath Stu, and everything thus far is basically to show what a wicked-cool, unstoppable, yet lust-worthy and fuzzy-feelings-worthy badass he is. Poor Komiya was sweet (as sweet as Yakuza can be), but he was basically there to show support in how wicked-great and charismatic Kubota is. And most of the characters look like Gojyo-Kenren or Banri--Komiya almost is Gojyo in personality as well--except for Kubota who looks like Hakkai. I'm told that's Minekura's style, and I know, but it wasn't this bad in Bus Gamers. Also, Minekura says in an endnote that volume 1 is actually the prologue to the actual story, and it feels like it.

The rating is as positive as it for Komiya.
