The first volume of Akira Amano's manga series about a young boy named Tsunayoshi Sawada, who discovers he has just become next in line to become the boss of the most powerful Mafia organisaion, the Vongola Famiglia.
Akira Amano was born in Aichi Prefecture, located in central Japan. After early versions of the series were published in seinen (young men's) manga magazines, Reborn first appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump as a stand-alone short story in late 2003. The massive success of this one-shot story led Weekly Shonen Jump to begin serializing Reborn! in mid-2004. Amano's work, with its entertaining mix of action, comedy and drama, remains extremely popular with readers.
