Ju Ingong (which literally translates to Main character) has been terrifying all his schoolmates in every school he has been so far. He has one extremely scary face type and whoever lays his eyes on him thinks he is a BAMF (bad ass). Although… is he really?

This would've gotten a higher rating had I not seen Angel Densetsu already.... But, you know what? For those who haven't seen Angel Densetsu, give this a try. It'll make you laugh quite a bit. After that, read Angel densetsu, which will also make you laugh a lot.
well, yeah it wasnt the same as angel densetsu, but it was worth reading. its kinda funny how every one think he's thaat strong when he's so weak. i like the charactere, too bad they dont become friend or something like this.
its got a good end and really funny one too
A hollow experience
This series is nothing like Angel Dansetsu, which was great. I have read the whole series and the amount of characters with an actual character in this series is zero, don't expect to care for anyone. No one is likable because no one has an actual personality.
I will also disagree with my fellow reviewers, the main character isn't witty at all, nor is he daring or kind, in fact he doesn't have a single redeeming character, he isn't even nice to his friends, which partially makes since because they aren't actually friends as they don't know him at all. The main character does try to manipulate the idiots around him, but he fails most of the time in non comical ways.
So what are we left with ? Situational comedy ? It is actually alright, but it is too repetitive and so increasingly unbelievable, 95% of actions taken by the main character are falling, slippimg, stumbling or picking things he dropped from the ground and that is how he sort of wins all his fights, and there quite a few. The first time it was unlikely, but forgivable as premises and for the novelty, but it happens again and again and again.
Also, it is sort of sad that at no point in the series do the friends of the main character actually get to know the real him.
On a note, the fights that are actually fought are decently drawn and are entertaining.
I would recommend retreading Angel Densetsu over reading this.
If you're looking for a deep, psychological manga, then you should probably look somewhere else- however if you're looking for a mindless fun read look no further! Transfer Student is one of those kinds of manga where you can sit back, relax, and try not to die of asphyxiation while you try to hold back your laughter.
The real gem of this manga is Ju Ingong, the main character. He's snarky, witty, and an absolute wimp (rightfully so) - but he has brains. Brains and luck. Watch as Ju rises to power using nothing but his superior intellect (and by 'superior' I mean that everybody around him appears to some sort of an idiot).
So that's it. It's an easy read. You might like it, and you might not. But I liked it, and it'll probably be worth your time too.

best of both worlds
I guess I'm the only one who liked this and liked Angel Densetsu? this is a mixture of Angel Densetsu with Zippy Ziggy author is a genius i'm sure he got his inspiration from both of those

All the comments are comparing this manhwa with Angel Densetsu. Most likely Angel Densetsu led you to his manga because u wanted something similar. Am I wrong? But then the comments start bashing on it because its similar and give a over exaggerated low score. Alright yes the art could use some work but its still readable. I like the plot, characters. Some believe that the things that happen are unbelievable? Of course it is but are you telling me that it will be better if it was believable? These are the questions i ask when i read the comments. This is a good manhwa webcomic and i do recommend it.
Pretty funny manga
Like most people said the dialogue the main character says are really funny. The manhwa may be like Angel Densetsu but the comedy is what makes this manhwa good. Even though it's basically the same plot, you can't trash a manga for being generic which most manga's are now. The art is kind of weird but I don't care about the art if the plot is good.
The downside to this manhwa is that there are no character development. We don't know anything about the other characters and we even don't know much about protagonist's life outside of school so that sucks about the manhwa. Another thing is the plot. The first arc was good but the second arc isn't good. The humor for the second arc is not funny at all and it seems like the author is trying to make the plot more serious. Nothing interesting has happened yet so I hope it gets better.
Overall I give this a 8/10 because of the comedy. The manhwa was good at first but with the second arc it doesn't make me excited to read the manhwa right away because its getting kind of boring. I still recommend this manhwa.

You either love it or hate it
I think this is one of my guilty pleasures. It's one of those comics which is so bad, that it becomes good. Sure the art isn't great, and the source of the story, as has been stated by many, is ripped off from Angel Densetsu.
HOWEVER, having said that, I found this story to be much more addicting than it's manga counterpart . I actually really love how Ingong isn't a complete douchebag who's naive - he's pretty manipulative. He's not perfect, which I find really refreshing, because too often, like in Angel Densetsu, the male protagonists are cookie-cutter perfect beings or completely evil beings. Ingong's a coward, and proud to be one! xD The creativity in the situations is amazing (I found this to be better than Angel Densetsu in this sense), and man oh man, did this make me laugh. I was literally crying over my computer, because of all the laughing.
Overall, I really loved it. I mean it's not perfect, and the art starts out kinda crappy. The characters are fairly endearing, and the story grows on you after a while. And if you're looking for a laugh, this one is perfect for you. WHEN READING JUST FORGET ABOUT ANGEL DENSETSU. Seriously, just go in with no expectations like I did, and you'll probably enjoy what you come out with.

I think a rating of 7.5 is for this series is a bit harsh. Yes the characterization has been lacking so far, and the way it travels from an important scene to another, with nothing in between leaves the whole setting a bit underdeveloped. (It's not a manga that really requiers deep characters however, and thats why I rate it so high.)
The idea and the actual content is very entertaining, and you can never guess how any given situation might play out, even if the outcome might be not be quite so (which makes perfect sense for the whole setting to remain relevant.) combine this with the amusing mind games that the main character has to conjure to keep up his facade, makes this a series that I keep coming back to.
I'ts not an extordinary piece of literature, thats to be said, but it works perfectly as a form of silly entertainment and is a series you can be comfortable reading, and at least for me personally it's well worth the 9 rating I gave it.
this is way too simliar to Angel Densetsu, but hes not as clueless as the guy from angel Densetsu...but i just can't seem to let go, the statements the transfer student say is hilarious
