YMMV / Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru

  • Arc Fatigue: Minoru vs. Tabuse of the Genesis tournament lasted way too long for its own good. Hardly anyone found the "pro-wrestling" gimmick easy to take seriously.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Saizo and Jiraiya's fight is seen as this by nearly everyone since it features two ninjas (though one turned into a BJJ fighter later on) fighting in a stance completely different from everyone else, named attacks, ninpo (dirty ninja tricks), and fire breathing!
  • Crazy Awesome: Kasumi, being a bona fide ninja with all the related powers (somewhat) in a series with realistic fighting, can be either this or Bunny-Ears Lawyer.
  • Designated Hero: Or at least, Designated Character-we're-meant-to-like.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Kevin Norton, once you learn his backstory.
  • Never Live It Down: As mentioned above in Designated Hero, Pedro is this to readers for his introduction arc that portrays him as a rapist...and gets away with his actions.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Some of the early couples can look like this given how little development they were given initially. Mutou/Haruka and Mamiya/Yukiko were the ones that stood out the most. While the former advanced pretty quickly, the latter is actually the slowest-growing couple.
