Salaryman manga that is a big hit in Japan. Kintarou is a former motorcycle gang leader and very popular with the ladies. This makes him an employee out of the ordinary. His outrageous exploits (often to counter injustice), and interventions in the company are completely against the traditional way of a salaryman. {PVH}

A national favorite! This series portrays all angles of modern day Japan-company, family, men, women, politics, economy, and more! The leader of motorcycle gang Hasshu Rengo, Kintaro Yajima, goes straight and starts working for an elite construction company after its chairman, Morinosuke Yamato, saves his life. Kintaro makes his point to society by blowing huge holes into Japanese corporate customs bound down with precedents and manuals. This series is also aired as a TV drama, and its video games are also available. {021}
