This is a shoujo manga (ie, aimed at girls/women). I'm a guy, 20 years old, enjoy hunting, fishing, paintballing, play the drums and enjoy things that all normal guys enjoy, and yet I think that this is a great series.

So far I've read up to volume 5 of this series. There's not a lot of heavy drama, which is good. I hate series that are all drama. Most of it is comedy/romance. It's funny to see what kind of situations Sachie (the main character) gets into now that she's living in a yakuza household (basically the Japanese equivalent to the mafia). Every once in a while, usually when someone is in danger, Sachie's personality will completely change and she'll go into bad@ss yakuza mode, which, as a guy, is something that gets me really attached to the character.

This is definitely a series that all manga lovers should check out. Guy or girl, I think there's something in this series that everyone can enjoy.

This is so funny. It had me cracking up in the store as I read it. The situations are slap thick and well done. The romance is cute (but complicated) and the drawing style is wonderful. Can't wait for more!!

I been wanting to read this since I saw it as a suggestion of manga to read. The story sounded pretty good and finally got around to reading this. The characters are interesting, the art good, and well, the volume was really good. Makes you want to read the next volume, wondering where the characters and story will go next. Looking forward to reading the other volumes now.

Wild Ones is a fun and crazy ride with aside if romance! Sachi is a sweet young girl who has just lost her mother. On top of everything else she fins out that her long lost grandfather who has just asked her to stay with him is part of the Yakuza! Throughout his series she learns more about her new family and even herself. I had a lot of fun seeing the antics of the yakuza members who were more like giant teddy bears than gangster members. Although the favorite member was definitely Rakuto because he had to be one of the sweetest and cutest members there was! His tried to keep his relationship with Sachi strictly professional even though deep down he loved her more than anything in the world. He had an interesting back story and I couldn’t help, but root for both him and Sachi. They made such a cute couple. There was also a lot of inner turmoil and trials that these characters had to go through to stay together and each one only made them stronger. This is a sweet and humorous read that Shojo fans will not want to miss! Art: The art was cute and I will give it a 4/5!

^_^ I heart Rakuto. I started reading this series maybe a week ago, and it's my new guilty pleasure. The plot is funny and doesn't seem like one that will get stuck or tire out easily. Girls will get giggly and boys apparently like it too (I see in one of the reviews below)! I just wish it was in colour. Favourite moments so far: the clan taking Sachie shopping and suika-wari! ^^ I want a Rakuto of my very own!

It was a lot of fun to read. I like her character. She is very strong person, and very fun to watch grow.

Sachie is the heroin of this story, just your average, teen-age girl, living with her Grandfather and a bunch of his yakuza underlings due to some unfortunate circumstances. Her protector, Rakuto, is one of those underlings, also the most popular boy in her school, and a regular prince to be sure, but despite the rather clichéd characterization, it's worth a read. The story and art are very well put together and there are plenty of sweet moments between Sachie and Rakuto, not to mention plenty of humor for those who like a romance balanced with comedy. I think every girl on the planet needs a boy like Rakuto.
