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), is an ongoing Japanese manga written and illustrated by Akira Amanao. The plot revolves around the life of a young boy named Sawada Tsunayoshi, who finds out that he is the next in line to become the boss of the most powerful Mafia organization, the Vongola Famiglia. As such, the Vongola’s most powerful hitman, a gun-toting infant named Reborn, is sent to tutor “Tsuna” on how to become a respectable boss.
The Reborn! story revolves around a boy named Sawada Tsunayoshi, 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. Tsuna then unwillingly undergoes training from Reborn. Reborn’s main method of teaching Tsuna is the “Dying Will Bullet” (“Deathperation Shot” in Viz Media’s translation of the manga), which will make the person be “reborn” with a stronger self intent on fulfilling his dying will. 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.
At first glance,this anime just a stupid comedy,but same as D.Gray-man episode 50++ will not have stupid event again,all of it is action and IT’S COOL!!!! the “no-good tsuna” become The “X-Gloves” User and Using Dying Will Zero Point Breakthrougth : First Edition and X-Burner!!! WOW,must be surprised,and the characterof this character have special skills too,just like “Jyudaimei” crew,such as Gokudera,Yamamoto,Hibari,Ryouhei,etc.
this anime using “Mafia” Themes,but TOO kind-heartly Mafia hehehehe
(沢田 綱吉/ツナ Sawada Tsunayoshi/Tsuna) is the 14-year-old central chara of the series. Because of his severely low self-esteem and lack of talent in any activity, Tsuna is known as “No-Good Tsuna” at his middle school Namimori. After being informed that he is the heir to the Vongola Family, due in part to him being the great-great-great grandson of the first Vongola boss as well as the untimely deaths of the other candidates for the position, he is trained into becoming a mob-boss by the infant Vongola hitman Reborn.Tsuna is often shot by Reborn with a bullet that increases his physical abilities in order for him to fulfill his regrets. That state is what gradually makes others see him in a better light. For the most part of the series, Tsuna rejects his position and wants nothing to do with the Mafia, however, due to the results of various conflicts involving himself and his friends, his own power matures and he eventually starts embracing his destiny. He is voiced by Yukari Kokubun in the anime.
(獄寺 隼人 Gokudera Hayato) is a 14-year-old transfer student from Italy who was placed in Tsuna’s class. Gokudera is a dynamite expert nicknamed “Hurricane Bomb Hayato” (スモーキン・ボム 隼人 Sumōkin Bomu Hayato). He keeps various explosives hidden on his person and uses those explosives liberally by lighting them with a cigarette (or several) held in his mouth. Initially, he comes to Japan in order to test Tsuna’s strength, and after the latter risks his life to save Gokudera, he devotes himself entirely to Tsuna, having sworn to become his right-hand man. A hot-headed and short-tempered youth, he continuously gets into fights with several of the other characters, especially to those who try to get too close to Tsuna. Despite his personality, he is considered to be a genius, excelling in his academic studies. He is voiced by Hidekazu Ichinose in the anime.
(山本 武 Yamamoto Takeshi) is the 14-year-old popular baseball star of Namimori Middle School. Despite his carefree and outgoing personality, he initially has no confidence in doing anything other than baseball, even attempting to commit suicide after sustaining major injury to his arm. After Tsuna reassures him, the two become close friends, and Reborn tries to recruit him into the Vongola Famiglia. He hardly takes anything seriously, and is usually oblivious to what is truly happening around him, often tricked by Reborn into participating in Mafia-related events because he thinks that they are all just playing a game. Though he becomes a dedicated and valuable member of Tsuna’s family, growing to become a fighter who excels at swordsmanship, he still does not understand the full extent of the situation surrounding the Mafia.He is voiced by Suguru Inoue in the anime.
(ランボ Ranbo) is a cow suit-clad 5-year-old assassin from Italy affiliated with the Bovino (“Bovino” means “bovine” in Italian) Famiglia. He has a huge afro (which he stores a variety of objects in, such as snacks and weapons) with horns on the sides of his head. Despite being a hitman, he lacks the emotional maturity and discipline that Reborn has and is also very conceited as well as being a crybaby. In order to prove that he is worthy of becoming his own family’s boss, he comes to Japan to kill Reborn, though he only proves that he is no match for the Vongola hitman. His main choice of weapons are hand grenades, and his future dream is to rule the world. He also possesses his family’s Ten-Year Bazooka, which replaces his present self with another version of himself ten years into the future. The 15-year-old Lambo remains a crybaby, though his good looks make him more charming to others.His child self is voiced by Junko Takeuchi, while his older self is voiced by Kenjiro Tsuda in the anime.
(笹川 了平 Sasagawa Ryōhei) is the 15-year-old passionate member of the boxing club at Namimori Middle School. He constantly asks others he believe are strong to join his club, most notably Tsuna. In response, Reborn wants to recruit him into Tsuna’s family. Every time he sees Tsuna and his family doing something strange, he gets fired up and always wants to be a part of it. Because of his energetic character, however, he does not understand the full extent of Tsuna’s connection with the Mafia, but still does everything that he can to protect him and fights with as much spirit and confidence as the others. Proficient in hand-to-hand combat, his boxing training lead to his peak physical condition. He is a habit of always saying “to the extreme” as a single response or as an ending to his sentences. He is voiced by Hidenobu Kiuchi in the anime.
(六道 骸 Rokudō Mukuro) is a 15-year-old Mafia criminal who escaped from an Italian prison, which held some of the most dangerous Mafia criminals, before he was to be executed. Not long after, he, along with his two subordinates, came to Japan, enrolled in Kokuyo Junior High, and started the Kokuyo Gang, which consists of heinous criminals whom have recently escaped from prison.Skilled in casting illusions as well as mind control, He attempts to take his revenge on the Mafia by taking over Tsuna’s body and using him to wreak havoc. When his plan fails due to Tsuna’s interference, he is once again imprisoned. However, later on in the series, after possessing the body of Chrome Dokuro, he takes on a more supportive role for the series’ main characters, though still prefers to not want to associate with them. He is voiced by Toshinobu Iida in the anime.
(クローム 髑髏 Kurōmu Dokuro), originally named “Nagi”, is a 13-year-old Japanese girl who wears a Kokuyo school uniform. Rokudo Mukuro uses her as a vessel after he saved her life by creating illusionary organs for her when she lost her right eye and some of her organs in an accident. Chrome has been shown using two of Mukuro’s six skills: creating illusions and summoning beasts that kill the enemy.The Japanese Romaji of her name, Kurōmu Dokuro, is an anagram of Mukuro Rokudō.
Chrome is the named holder of the Mist Ring, and thus battles Mammon in the Vongola Tournament. When she is overwhelmed by Mammon’s powers, Mukuro takes control and defeats him. After being transferred into the future, her physical condition takes a turn for the worse as several of her internal organs begin to fail. However, under adult Hibari’s instructions, she uses the power of her Vongola Ring to sustain her organs via her own illusions, thus avoiding any immediate danger. She later takes part in the raid of the Millefiore Family’s main base. She is voiced by Satomi Akesaka in the anime.
As far as i know is,Tsuna and friends was preparing to have war with the REAL Millefoire family(coz’ at first,they fight with Millefoire imposter) and they’re learning how to ride motorcyle(LOL),and when Tsuna open the Vongola Box,the beast on the box is berserking,after that incident Dino(from 10 years later) teach Tsuna how to open the sky box properly.
