Description
Every good thing in Naoya Kamitani's life comes with a catch: He managed to get into a prestigious university... missing the fine print that he'll be sacrificed to appease dark beings. When he arrives at the school, he immediately runs into a man with all the answers... who never tells him the whole truth. A rather pretty girl wants him all to herself... as her dinner. He gains the favor of the richest, most influential girl in school... and she's a total sadist. He even finds out he has a daughter... who sets fire to everything when she gets excited. Will Naoya come out on top? It's a long road ahead of him..

Intro wasn't that bad...?

Despite the comments about the intro being lacking, I thought it wasn't that bad....
It wasn't so terribly nonsensical or weird, but it was a bit rough in its execution. The main character may seemed to have acted strangely (some say stupidly) in such dire situations (in the 'Orientation' intro chapters), but I thought it was understandable if you think about it. But well that's just my opinion.

In addition to the 'youkai' theme (similar to Nurarihyon no Mago, as someone mentioned below), the story seems to also focus on themes of 'fighting against those who oppress', and 'don't judge a book by it's cover'. The main character has a sad past, which is why he's so set on improving himself, change his luck, and rise over those who oppress. It's easy to misunderstand the youkai at first, but they are ultimately a mischievous bunch, and you just gotta read on to know what their real intentions were.

I gave it a 7 because although I find it to be alright, this type of manga just isn't exactly what I was looking for.

Also, can someone change the image above? It's highly misleading and not an accurate depiction of this manga imo (well, unless that's the actual manga cover...). The description is also misleading and contains spoilers (well, sort of).

All in all, I think this manga is misunderstood haha~

Of Course Not

Of course the description isn't accurate. When I wrote it it was like chapter 1 and we decided to go against spoiling the story. After chapter 7 comes out, the overall plot will have hit its stride and then will be the time to update the description.

Ch7 is out and the description is updated
The category we decided on, "slice of afterlife" is perfectly appropriate. Plenty of manga staples and plenty of originality built upon those staples.

A textbook example of a terrible start

Don't judge this manga from the terrible premise. The first two or three chapters are not only nearly nonsensical, they're also sloppy and downright insulting to the reader's intelligence. The MC is completely unrealistic at the start but luckily, things turn around. Baketeriya is a good example of the saying "It can only get better from here".

Baketeriya has teething problems but it quickly gets itself on the right track and starts telling a good story. Baketeriya is similar to Nurarihyon no Mago in that they both involve an army of youkai. There are a couple huge differences which make Baketeriya a completely different experience. First off, Bake is written to get your emotions to flare up. It almost feels like a rage manga. Luckily, it doesn't go too far into the rage territory. Next, Bake went the slow romance with comedy route with drama arcs. The youkai army feel more like side characters rather than the focus.

This isn't much of a seinen but then again, there aren't many chapters out right now.

Read this if you're looking for something a bit silly that will also get you a bit fired up.

Awkward

This is such a strange story. From the description here, you might think this is some kind of action manga, but its not. From the last line of the description, you might think that this is a "dark" manga, but its not. From the image here, you might think this is a story packed with youkai, and you'd only be half right.

The story starts off oddly enough. Idiotic, hard working, apparently badass kid gets into an ultra-prestigious school thinking he got in through sheer smarts. But nope, he was accepted to be a literal sacrifice to the youkai confined there. Bitter? Yup! Learned his lesson? Nope!

The story then spins off into typical manga hijinks with girls fawning over him, comedic friends egging him on and non-stop comedy antics. Still think the description is accurate?
