Katekyō Hitman Reborn! [ (家庭教師ヒットマンREBORN!), Katekyō Hittoman Ribōn! ]. “Katekyō” being a portmanteau of Katei Kyōshi and translated as Home Tutor. The series falls under these genres: Action, Comedy, Mafia, Supernatural, School, Shounen. Katekyō Hitman Reborn! is an ongoing Japanese manga written and illustrated by Akira Amano. The series has been adapted into an anime series, and is produced by Artland and directed by Kenichi Imaizumi. Personally, I find this series very good, and always find myself wanting to watch the next episode.
The Reborn! story revolves around a boy named Tsunayoshi “Tsuna” Sawada, who is chosen to become the Vongola Family’s boss due to him being the great-great-great grandson of the first Vongola boss, who had moved to Japan from Italy during his time. Also, the other candidates for the position of the head of the Vongola Family died. For these reasons, Tsuna is the only remaining heir. As such, Timoteo a.k.a. “Vongola IX,” the current head of the family, sends Reborn, an infant hitman from Italy, to train Tsuna. Through his experiences, Tsuna unconsciously becomes stronger and more confident, which ultimately makes him better suited as the Vongola Family’s boss despite continuing to reject his Mafia inheritance.
