Mizushoubai (water business) is the term for Japan's night life activities, such as fuuzoku (similar to prostitution but none of the illegal bits), hosting and managing (entertaining at bars), and kyabakura (night clubs). Recently, it was decided that a high school should be founded to educate the youth in these areas where they previously had no such guidance: the School of Water Business, "Mizushou", located in Tokyo's Shinjuku ward.
The story is from the perspective of a teacher, Tanabe Keisuke, who was transferred there to help teach that school's first generation of students.

the story is quite interesting despite the theme being close to teen prostitution (reaaally ecchi)
but if you overlook the controversial topic you can see how well the story is plotted
and shows the trials of young people trying to find their place in the "watertrade"
also really enjoyed inokuma's salad days

You expect it to be a shallow and overtly ecchi story, and then it hits you with a social commentary, and an un-boring one at that. As Anonymous (one of them) said, there's no deep plot, it's mainly just about the characters--teachers and students, equally--growing and learning in the company of one another, and their various unusual experiences.

So yeah, this manga is all about the adventurous learning experiences of the characters, upon whose conclusion everything turns out okay. But these types of experiences aren't just redressed versions of the types you'd find in other stories, plus they're totally untraditional in that they deal with such serious and "mature" themes.

Actually there is something like this in the real world. It's called a Thai massage.
Yeah, like the posts above said. Good story, surprising, really, considering its so ecchi

I'll admit, I first started reading this for the fan service and that didn't disappoint. But there's actually a pretty interesting story involved. Slowly, that became the reason I read it, not the fan service. Good art and entertaining characters.

Read vol1 so far, and it's actually good. There's no deep plot (yet) and the humours' decent.
