Description
From author's site:
"I (the term 'boku' is used, indicating that the narrator is a male teenager) love math. Just after the high school entrance ceremony I meet a beautiful girl, Milka. Milka is a mathematical genius. She gives me many math problems and shows me many elegant solutions. Milka and I spend a long time discussing math in the school library.

A year later I meet another mathematical girl, Tetra. Tetra is one year younger than me, and asks me to teach her math. While I teach her, she begins to understand math and to love its elegance gradually."

In the first volume (series), we talk about Fibonacci Numbers, Harmonic Numbers, Finite and Infinite Sums, Factorization, The Bazel Problem, Partitions of the Integer, and Generating Functions.

Well I did study maths in college, and I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It brings back some nice (?!) memories, and also offers some interesting proofs that I wish they'd taught us in high school (and that were skipped in college). Some of the concepts may be hard to understand for those who didn't study much maths though. Still, for those who try to understand it a bit, they'd be reminded that maths is marvelous!

This story is a bit too mathematical, like all the other reviewers had said. You can skip over the mathematical parts, and still make out the story ( providing that you learned the basics). But to understand the story, you need to know the things covered in precalculus. ( I only learned to precalculus, and I could under stand it so...)
Reading this is not helping me trying to forget how hard trig in precalculus was.......bigrazz

This manga was good. Despite the strong mathematical tones, it pays enough attention to characters so that even if one doesn't know maths, he/she can enjoy this from a romance/relationship perspective.

This manga really reminded me of my high school time where we used to tinker around with Calculus, infinite series, theorems and statistics ^^;

Though the manga can be viewed as a discussion of mathematics of various levels, you need to understand the difference between the levels of math that are discussed in order to really understand the way the girls correlate to the main character. For example, Tetra, whose skills are obviously still in Algebra I, is a simple, down to earth girl, almost average in the sense, sort of safe for the main character. However, Milka delves into higher level mathematics, such as pre-calculus, giving her an air of mystery to the reader. But actual understanding of mathematics is not mandatory to enjoy the manga, though it may hamper the reader a bit, as the manga isn't quite in what you'd call "layman's terms".

On the other hand, if you're an avid fan of mathematics and number theory, the different takes on the many mathematical formulas you learn in school are quite interesting, such as using the rotation matrices to find the double angle identities, rather than algebra.

To penguin71, personally I didn't think you had to have an understanding of Calculus at all. So far (from what I've read that's out), the highest level the manga has touched upon is Pre-Cal, and from there, only Trigonometry with the trigonometric identities. Unless Calculus AB encompasses Pre-Cal, Calculus is not needed.

Math + Romance

Exactly what it says on the tin. There's a lot of discussion about math, but not just boring proofs or whatnot but unique takes on "relatively common" mathematical formulas. I would recommend at least an understanding of Calculus I (AB) to get the gist and Calculus II (BC) to fully understand what is going on.

However, you don't need to understand math to enjoy the story. If anything, the author uses math as sort of an analogy between the relationships of the MC and the other two girls. It is a sweet romance tale with simple but effective artwork.

I'd say: don't read if you're looking for deeper subplots or anything, but try it out if you just want a simple tale with no strings attached.
