Boys Run the Riot by Keito Gaku

Reviewed by Jess H (Library Staff)

Boys Run the Riot revolves around three teenage boys: Jin, the scary-looking older kid who got held back a grade, Ryoko, a transman navigating his gender identity and school-life, and Itsuka, a painfully ordinary pushover. The three of them create a clothing brand as a way to express themselves and fight back against society and the assumptions other people put on them.

This manga is fast-paced, exciting, and heartwarming. The friendship between the three main characters is endearing and a nice change of pace from the typical shonen rivalries of manga. It’s an uplifting story about chasing one’s dreams and building self-confidence.
