The story is of Kitano Seiichirou, a very kind and pure-hearted young man, with a horrifying, monstrous face. People being what they are, they think he's a terrifying delinquent, and there are plenty of chance misunderstandings (coupled with Kitano's convenient inability to understand what's happening around him) that propel him into the position of "school guardian", a.k.a. head thug on campus.

Like the story, you really can't judge something or someone by the appearance. I was hesitant to read this at first because it looks so serious with the drawings and the angels and I thought it was like a dark manga. Surprisingly, it was a light-hearted comedy with some fighting scenes that will satisfy anyone.

I now love this manga and recommend it to everyone.

I absolutly adored this story, I mean, I'm a girl and don't usually read shounen, but I couldn't help falling for the characters. All the diferent situations and the characters reactions to them keep you laughing through all the 15 volumes. I also really enjoyed each time Kitano managed to get through to people, past his scary/thug image.It made me think about how I see people around me and how to make a better person of myself by not just taking the first impression of them, just of his/her exterior.

I know people often critize the art, but it gets a lot better later. I was in about volume 7 when I went to the first chapter to check the drawings and was shocked to see the diference. It's not a master piece, but it goes from utterly disgracefull to normal. I do have to say that i loved the way the girls where drawn later.

I strongly recommend this manga, it's really funny and it actually leaves you with something to think about.

There's a lot of complaints about the art here but once you get used to it you can see it's not bad at all. I've reread this a few times and every time it makes me chuckle, it's very funny and imaginative and you grow to love all the characters.

So please don't judge it by its art, read a few volumes and you'll get to see what I mean! I promise you won't regret it.

I read a few chapters and dropped this series, I just couldnt get passed the art... its just so so bad...usually i can grow to like different types of art or just get passed it for the story but I just couldnt get past its awfulness... i cant honestly rate this because i never read enough of it...

sadly i dont think ill ever pick this one back up, everyone says its a good story but i wasnt captured enough in what i read to overcome the putrid art...

One of the most hilarious manga i've probably read ever. Funny character but some characters might get annoying at times. The art is really bad at first but its starts to get better later on since this is one of the authors first manga series.This manga is one of those gems series that the comedy and plot never gets old even though it more then a decade old already. A must read.

Good story, nice ending, (can't stop reading it..)
and art.. well, i think it's okay, i prefer good story than good art..
It's interesting that there is some character that resemble claire and raki (CMIIW) in claymore(same author)..

geezz.. i hope i will find another manga as funny as this..two thumbs up..

I. Loved. This. Manga. I dont say that a lot, there are few titles that sit with me the way this one did, I loved the action, the way the characters acted, everyone was so vivid it really seemed like you were reading about an actual neighborhood where this was going on. Some of the reactions to Kitano were the funnyest things ive ever read in manga. I mean, i have to wait a full 5 minutes before I can even scroll down the page because i'm lauging too hard from the first 4 panels. Plus the action is entertaining to read, at the start of the manga I didnt expect to actually see too many fights, but boy, there sure are a lot of them as the manga goes on.

Enough ranting, i gave this manga a 10, and i believe that every chapter is gold. Read It.

Let me start by saying that I was put off a long long time by that picture on the top, that and the fact that the synopsis did not catch my eye, at all. I'm sorry having finished all 15 volumes in one go, that it didn't. The first part was pure brilliance, the gags had me laughing every chapter. The misunderstandings and the situations the protagonist got into was also brilliant, the fun just kept bombarding me relentlessly. Some of the best stuff I've read in a manga to this day actually.

Then something happened, it started to slow down, the plot in the middle albums got less and less funny. The same joked were repeated one time to much really. It more or less degraded into an normal (albeit good) high school comedy, but it's still far cry from the first 6 or 7 volumes.

It did redeem itself during the final two volumes though, those were great. The were really well made. The ending didn't suck for once, which made me happy. smile

Does this manga deserve a 10? The answer is simply, no it doesn't. Very very few mangas does, the ratings on this site is in my opinion hugely inflated. It is not a good thing when people gives away 10's to each and every manga, they happen like at the moment.

Still the first part was hands down, amazing. And it was really nice to watch the authors/artists growth during the series. To bad he couldn't keep the steam up for all 15 volumes though, story wise. sad I really have no complaints about the art, it fit the manga perfectly, even if I don't consider it great by any means.

So all in all, an 8. Would actually have considered giving this a 10 if he could have kept going all the way though, and not got the slump in the middle.
