The story had its moments but dragged a lot of the times. The momentum of the story is often disrupted between chapters, especially when the author leaves a conflict unresolved and moves on to another conflict. The author also seem to have a tendency to introduce a new character, but then shift the focus on to something else which spans several chapters before coming back to re-focus on the new character (which by then, I would have lost interest or forgotten about the new character). This mostly happens in the beginning and less so as the manga goes on. I think this is part of the reason why I have difficulty remembering and maintaining interest in majority of the cast in the manga.

The art strongly reminds me of Mashima Hiro's works...which I like. I'm guessing the author may have worked with him before she started this manga or was somehow influenced by his works.

It had a lot of hilarious moments as well as frustrating face-palm moments - mostly in relation to Adachi Hana who, to me, doesn't seem to mesh well with other characters (her remarks are just too random and unrelated to the conflict at hand a lot of the time). There has been very little character development for Adachi Hana - hardly any moments of vulnerability, a betterment of character. She mostly just stays the same throughout the entire manga, oblivious and in her own world. Considering that she is the female heroine, the lack of character development and insight into her past is probably the most disappointing factor for me as well as the lack of romantic interaction between her and the male protagonist. But then again this manga was cancelled before anything about Hana's past could be revealed, sparks could fly between her and the male protagonist, or any character development for her. So I guess I'll cut the manga some slack.

But nonetheless, the manga is interesting and worthwhile to read when it isn't jumping all over the place, or introducing new characters left and right without elaboration on their stories.

I really enjoyed the first few chapters of the manga! I was laughing so hard at their antics.. But then the cast of characters gradually accumulated to the point where I wasn't really interested in more than half of them.

I read up to the latest scanlated chapter... but if I had stopped at the first volume, my rating would have been a 9.

// Finished reading it over half a year later. Ending spoilers below...

I have the say that this tops the list for one of the worst manga endings I have ever read. It just makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Not only do we not find out anything about Adachi's background, they completely gloss over why she just disappeared for the graduation ceremony and for 4 years afterwards. Instead she just ends up returning as a high school student, again?! She got into the best university in Japan, and instead she is going through high school with people 8 years younger than her... I'm seriously at a loss for why the mangaka ended it this way, without tying up a lot of loose ends and providing some conclusion to the romance part of this manga.

I really didn't care for this, Adachi annoyed me to no end. I can't get past the first part of it without wanting to knock some sense into the girl. Just... don't like it, and honestly not funny at all. I barely crack a smile every 5 chapters. and just grew more boring as time went by.

At first I thought this was a shoujo-ish shounen manga but after reading a few chapters guess I was wrong. I mean, I never thought that the mangaka is a woman. Although one might think it's focused on Adachi and Shinagawa, I think from the start it was about Shinagawa. His sense of responsibility is quite amazing and he's very reliable. I love how some of the main characters have more to them than you think. But there's too much sub-characters it's hard to take track of everyone.

It takes abit of getting into and only really gets good after the other characters start appearing. But it is a shame that the focus had switched for Adachi and Shinagawa to just really on Shinagawa. It's just less interesting having it just focus on Shinagawa.

it was interesting gag manga, but it drags too long, don't you think?

I guess it can't be helped since it is a shounen series (which means it will continue forever as long as someone reads it)

If you haven't read this already and you enjoy high school manga, you shouldn't hesitate. The beginning starts off a bit slowly but as you meet the full cast, the story gets good quickly.

The theme of the story seems to be outsiders learning what it means to have friends, but there's nothing forced, nothing cheesy. The humor is from the situations, and the theme comes from the situations. There is nothing forced, and nothing preachy. The author isn't trying to talk about the benefits of friendship, but it's a theme that stays behind the laughter and the drama throughout the book.

Great Comedy

The story starts off with the main guy sitting on a toilet and this random girl showing up above the toilet stall.. in the men's bathroom. Priceless.

The comedy is fabulous without being total gag; it's well-done and fits the story perfectly. The development of the main character is clearly seen throughout the whole story; it is really cool to see him change over time. The main girl goes through some change too, but not quite as much. In fact, all the characters develop at least a little in the story.

I'm a big fan of Hiro Mashima, mangaka of Fairy Tail & Rave Master, and this mangaka worked with him, so it's a personal big plus. ^^

If you like school life, lots of comedy, good art, a little bit of delinquent action, and just a fun read to pass time, I highly recommend Yanki-kun to Megane-chan.

edit: what I wrote above is still true; however, that ending... was really disappointing. Part of it wrapped up nicely but the other half just kinda.. sunk. It doesn't make much sense why the mangaka went this direction. :/ Still a well-developed character with the main guy though.

the story really reminds me of Beelzebub. without demons. you have delinquents fighting and groups of superior fighters. the story is more realistic and down to earth though. it focuses on the characters' high school lives and how they move to college. once again, i have found another manga with great comedy.

the art is relatively better than most shounen. the first volumes had detailed scenes and pictures. though, as volumes passed, the art became more rushed, somehow looking quite similar to Fairy Tail's. even as the art evolved, good proportion and style was observed.

the comedy in this manga is really great! its not your usual type of comedy. the two main characters really make a hilarious duo. the supporting characters add the humor by making witty side comments and all.

well, i dont have much say in the plot. its not that serious or deep. it fits the theme of the manga anyway. even though the plot is quite simple as of the moment, character development is observed and portrayed well.

unfortunately, the manga has slooow updates. the manga is already completed though. you can also try reading Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo. its another work of the same author.

I decided to give this a try after reading Angel Densetsu and oh my goodness, I spendtthis whole week reading through this manga. It is so addicting and I really love each and every character. I love the plot, the concept, and the character's back story. I am hoping there will be more background info on Hana Adachi, because I really love her character and back story. I cannot wait for the rest of the series to be scanlated <3
