Patience definitely needed to follow this series, one of few reasons many bad reviews this series got because couldn't stand the gag until Kokuyo arc started. You have to admit this series take a big turn once the first Big Bad is introduced. When you think Tsuna is annoyingly coward and , the take on his character for Shonen surprisingly more realistic than other series. We are talking about middle school student who have been a Butt Monkey for most of his life and then suddenly forced to be a mafia boss. Realistically he will not start punching the light out of Big Bad or anything like that. For this troper this is the first appeal spotted from this series. And even after this series goes on, Tsuna have NO big dream like most of Shonen series hero only want to be normal and live a decent and happy life. Some people have issues with him being too soft and unwilling to kill his enemies no matter how Complete Monster they are. This must have something to do with his resolve to not accept Vongola's sin and continue their bloody history. So far TYL Byakuran and Daemon Spade are the only one he killed though it revealed present Byakuran is still alive and seems to be a pretty good guy now and Daemon... well he is not alive in the first place. I love this series,and when the training plot is repetitive each arc is memorable and packed with action, humor and angst. Current arc seems tame compared to TYL or Shimon arc because it only take destroying watch to win the battle but then again with many mystery not yet to be revealed the representative battle probably just a warm up.
