Description
Foreign exchange student Alyosha Stalina has been attending a Japanese high school for 3 months. She comes from the nation of Solessia but she is yet to fit in with the other students because of her unfriendly demeanor and cold personality. Rightfully so because Alyosha is a trained assassin that has been murdering people since she was 5 years old. Officials in Estolakia, a country devastated by the attacks from Solessia, found the orphaned Alyosha and trained her as a top notch assassin to work against Solessia.

Her most recent and soon to be last mission is to murder the president of Solessia who is to attend the high school she has infiltrated for 3 months. However, the mission is aborted and she is ordered to remain a student. The only thing Alyosha knows how to do is to be an assassin and has never learned how to be a normal teenage girl. Will Alyosha be able to complete her most difficult mission yet?

this kind of premise can go any number of ways, and most usually they can drag this out from one misunderstanding to another. but, this mangaka has a vision and he has a plan, and i think he execute them wonderfully. every chapters are set to promote the plot further even for just a little. i like the political part in this manga, the mangaka manage to explain it without we feel like it's just an ass pull. all in all, a funny planned out manga.

Whether the Name is Male or Female, IT DOESN'T MATTER

Seriously, it's not the first time a manga mistakenly used a male name or female name. It doesn't affect the quality of the story or characters in any way. Heck see Fushigi no Maria-kun or even this page.

Now regarding the actual series, I think it's been a LONG time since I've become so engrossed and saddened a series ended. Everything was paced very well and it knew exactly where to end without prolonging the series unnecessarily (you know what I mean). I just loved how much thought the Mangaka put into the story to show the logical thinking and actions the characters took. Despite the initial premises, the story was done in a pretty good realistic way yet still maintained it's adorable humor that didn't force the readers to suspend their disbeliefs in many other action/comedy series. And in case you were wondering, it does start a little bit episodic, but there are many hints to quickly show there is an ongoing and interesting plot.

I would definitely recommend this for both the light comedy, as well as for the interesting engrossing medium-length read.

Alyosha is a MALE name, dangit.

...and not one of the either-or kinds either. They musta been thinking of the OTHER Alex name - Aleksandr(m)/ Aleksandra(f) indeed both abbreviate to "Sasha", but Alexei(m) => Alyosha is strictly boy-only.

Now "Alexis", a western version, does indeed seem to go both ways... but it isn't Slavic and doesn't turn into pet name "Alyosha" at all.

Btw, little Russian to Japanese comparison lesson:
Alexei, just Alexei = basic
Alexei + patronym = Alexei-san
"Lyoha"/ "Lyosha" = Alexei-kun
"Alyosha" = Alexei-chan

At first I thought it would be the standard assassin who doesn't kill gag comedy routine. I was wrong. Once it finally starts up its plot it becomes a lot more thrilling than I would have guessed. My original impression of this manga was that it wasn't bad, but wasn't great. Now its on the fast track to legend IMO. Additionally the gag humor is a great contrast to the dark plot, and it makes the read VERY memorable.

Btw by gag I was generally refering to stuff like the eccentric rich guy acting homeless, and the ninja clan and such. Idk if that classifies gag, and it fits surprisingly well into the story. You know its totally ridiculous, but for some reason it feels natural

Good, but Alyosha is a male name

Nice, but as a russian, i must point that Alyosha is a male name. In russian culture it`s unthinkable to call a girl Alyosha (Alyosha is a short for Aleksey/Alexius). It`s even more ridiculous than calling a girl John in USA.

I guess in Japan there is less difference in male and female names...

So far (ch13) there's no real plot of any kind going on and most of the events are pretty generic (with a silly outcome)... Oddly enough, I still want to read more smile . The lack of fanservice/ecchi is definitely a plus.

If they decided to make an Anime out of this (or similar), I'd watch it.

Cute and a little interesting. The story isn't one that gets anywhere close to the "great" manga, but it keeps your attention enough to keep you laughing and look forward to the next chapter.
