Famed for the manga Saiyuki, Minekura offers up more boys' own wild adventures in this series.

High school mah-jongg gambler Makoto Kubota is drafted as the new head of the junior division of a Yakuza syndicate. His duties: keeping the area clean of infringing outsider Yakuza organizations. After befriending Nobuo Komiya, another member of the junior chapter, Kubota learns of a new street drug called "wild adapter." Strange, supernatural elements are alluded to as users of this new drug transform into part-animal and then die. In this first volume, Minekura introduces a handful of characters and different scenarios that tie together while some loose ends act as a primer for the next volume. Wild Adapter is part mystery with a strong homoerotic subtext; it's rated 18+, most likely for the bits of female nudity (a few scenes take place in brothels) as well as the mature content - drug trafficking, gambling.

Minekura's gritty style will resonate with seinen (older male) readers, making a good read for anyone taken by Yakuza ideas of redemption, devotion, dedication and man love but uninterested in the sexual aspects of actual boys' love.
