Inaho Jr. High's Boys Ping Pong Club has only 6 members, the club minimum. Takeda is your average nice guy. Kinoshita is good looking and popular with girls. Unfortunately, the rest are branded as losers. Tanabe is too foreign, while Tanaka is petite and perverse. Maena and Izawa are truly deviant, and their crazed antics have earned the team some powerful enemies. In spite of their differences, the team needs to work together to retain their practice room and club status.

Note: Won the Kodansha Manga Award for general manga in 1996.

This manga is directly comparable to the first few South Park seasons before that show turned into biting satire and a masterpiece. The author also changed after he moved on but not for the better as this remains his best work with Wanitokagegisu (8/10). I also turn to America and Europe for (sex) comedy's but this one succeeds as it puts black/toiled humor first and titillation second. The humor will probably turn off the general audiences and the quirky art won't help but the first half (basically the amine) can be true comedy gold. Some of the rape jokes overreach, the story goes on too long and does not quite finish (hehe) but that part should get a translation too as it is still interesting. I don't get why the author decide to set this at a middle school or why the (surprisingly functioning ) romances aren't resolved but readable ecchi is rare so i will crown it the as maybe not as the king but certainly as the jester in the land of the blind. Genshiken (8/10) mentions the manga btw. and the also reviewed Love in Hell (8/10) and "The Penisman" (8/10) by ISHIDA Sui should be your next destination.

This is one of the funniest manga I've ever read in my life. When I read the first chapter I was like "this is the ugliest art I've ever seen, I don't think I can do this", and I can read almost any manga no matter the art. I gave it a chance though, because it had such good reviews, and I'm so happy I did! I will remember this manga for the rest of my life. Everyone should give this a chance. If you don't like it and you've gone through 5 chapters, then you can quit. It's good!
