Hachimitsu Private Academy was a revered and elite all-girls’ boarding school on the outskirts of Tokyo…once upon a time. But with the new school year comes a revision to school policy: Boys are to be admitted into the student body for the first time ever. But on his first day at Hachimitsu, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he’s one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Their numbers overwhelmed by the thousand girls in the student body, is it heaven or hell that awaits these five (un)fortunates?!

My God if you dont have a sense of humor and /or dont like this style of comedy then dont read it. im tired if reading other comments from people taking it way too seriously even though its obviously a comedy/ecchi manga. To me this manga is hilarious, there are many times where this had me bursting out laughing (Mainly the ones with Andre or Gakuto but almost every character has their moments); its just tons of awkward, lecherous and ridiculous moments(and a ton of Ecchi too) that are so funny. They just have so much passion and ambition for ridiculous things lol. so if you dont like reading a manga like this then dont.

Also man In terms of characters, i like all the female ones a lot (there mostly there for ecchi and comedy anyway but some have a good amount of character development and story like for both Presidents and Hana); However the best characters that Reallymake this manga are the guys. At first Andre and Gakuto were the best male characters in my opinion but later on Kiyoshi started to shine a whole lot and took his rightful place as the best one lol (since he is the MC). His determination for the most stupidest things and metaphors are so hilarious. Andre is number two cause hes still the ultimate Masochist lol. Then The Principle (king of asses) lol. And Then Gakuto the Abused strategist and the rest. The lamest one to me is Shingo he had a lot of annoying hypocritical moments. All in all though they make the series more then the ecchi so if dont like ecchi but you can at least tolerate it then you will love this series for more then just that.

This is absolutely ridiculous but I'm laughing anyway. I'm not even into ecchi, I find it annoying and useless but this story is cracking me up and the characters too. The stupid situations they get into and the plans they concoct to try and escape are just so funny and they really have you on the edge on your seat at times. I'd have to say the whole thing when the friends thought that the two guys were gay had me in tears, especially at the shower scene. I'm really rooting for these boys to escape and it seems that they're close right now but I can see something going wrong. I also despise that female student council, all three of them, God damn they are infuriating. I'd also like to thank this manga for teaching me that the true meaning of life is ass.
Update: I take it back the USC is great.

Did the Series just end at Chapter 78? That's quite unusual to end a series at a climatic end not knowing what will happen with the boys in the prison. could someone correct me if I am wrong?

What a great series, one of the funniest series I've read in a while. A lot of the plot is a parody of the prison escape/survival genre.

The excessive cruelty of the guards is ridiculous.. but hey, people can become pretty crazy in real prisons (think Stanford prison experiment). Basically don't take any of this series seriously (even when drawn uber-seriously) and you should enjoy it.

I didn't find the first few chapters that funny but after a while, just couldn't stop reading. Haven't laughed this much in a while.

I had fun reading it just as the mangaka had fun drawing it. It might be tiring to read this chapter by chapter since there are so much fan service and the pace is slow.

Some chapters that was interesting...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
-that chapter on nipple hair cracked me up and he was blowing wind on it, LOL.
-the answer to tits or ass was enlightening.

Keep in mind when reading this that these are boys who don't know how to handle themselves around girls. So they may not always handle the situation correctly which leads to the humor.

Akira´s over the top art is good and the "serious" humor works fine for the about 6 volumes but i now had enough after flipping through the next 4 volumes as i couldn´t see anything to stick around but the series was fairly decent while the joke lasted. The prison arc actually concludes after a while but the following scenario isn´t that hot (no pun intended) or original. All in all Prison School is nothing phenomenal but at least the it´s a clear comedy and not a porno. Not a lot of "hard ecchi" titles can say that but it´s a shame that the author had to kill Me and the Devil Blues which started to really get going.
Update: I flipped through the recent stuff due to the expose the series got after the Kodansha win (an in house award) and the anime but the third arc is just the first one again with clear focus on SM + Watersports so the series had been reduced to a harem porno only. The characters further became deeply unsympathetic and the narrative is weirdly cruel and exploitative so i can only recommend again to drop the series after the first arc and to read the comparable and equality award-winning Ping Pong Club (7,5/10) instead. Jigokuren - Love in the Hell (8/10) further presents a quality ecchi satire that ended too soon and i reviewed both. I wonder why sex focused American comics as Image´s Sex Criminals can both get serious awards and stay on my pull list for the whole run while the Japanese counterparts are regularly bottom of the barrel. At least Me and the Devil Blues came back but the author has a history of burning out as seen here so i will be cautious when i see his name pop up in the future as this isn´t his first derailed porno.

This somewhat silly story has a lot of flaws, but to me it always gives the impression, in its over-the-top way, that it was written to be read as fun, by a mangaka who was having a hell of a lot of fun writing it. I particularly enjoy the way the main "enforcer" girl constantly lords it over the guys while wearing an impossibly revealing kind of "school dominatrix" outfit. Thinking back, I'm pretty sure that I was in such a state at that age that if such a budding dominatrix had (impossibly) shown up in my school I would have been happy to submit to her discipline just to get close to her under-clothed body.

Another reviewer explained earlier the key fact that this manga is situated in that short time-period of life when early-teen boys are both so incredibly horny and so socially inept that they despair of ever having a girlfriend or sex, and so will do anything to curry favor with any girl who'll interact with them at all. This story seems to me like it's essentially an absurd and visually-exaggerated acting out of that state of near-hopeless sexual need.

As such, this is a good, almost emotionally-true-to-life, story for boy readers of the age-group depicted, and an occasion of rueful remembering for men readers. (Girls might like it just to laugh at guys while getting a clue of how pathetically needy they can be.) I do hope, though, that at some point at least one girl ends up dating at least one of those boys. No one could stand that state of helpless horniness if it went on for many volumes, including most readers.

Somewhat original, yet repetitive

At first when I started reading this series, I found it pretty entertaining. But you start to notice that many chapters have absolutely no plot development and the same things happen, just drawn at different angles. The angle that annoys me the most is the upskirts, especially when there's dialogue as if her sweaty snatch is talking.
The ecchi crap is the only thing that keeps this series going, not that it interests me in the least. Revealing, pointless angles of one girl's tits and twat takes up 1/4 to 1/3 of all the panels (exaggerated estimate, but not by much). This is purely a fan service manga with a some comedy (mostly toilet and sexual-ish humor) and plot (if you'd call it that). The story progresses so slowly because of all the fan service and it just becomes stale unless you really like seeing essentially the same image of a scantily clad, sweaty cartoon girl, who apparently has no nipples or they're on the underside of her tits, from slightly different angles. Personally, I'd enjoy to see a bit of drama that doesn't revolve around something ecchi.
I find most of the characters generic, but most manga is the same in that area. The principal is, IMO, the only original character. The setting is very original and is the ONLY reason I've kept up with the series, although I usually skim through many pages. I do like the principal, though.
What I don't understand, like somebody else said, is why the boys don't stand up for themselves when they're getting the shit knocked out of them. The only person who has a reason to stay there is the MC because of a love interest (another generic love interest where the MC acts like that's the only girl in the world he could be with), so I don't see why the other guys don't go berserk or leave. Yeah, the story could lose some of it's pizazz (for lack of better words), but it could also open up new events, such as new male students or one of the boys who leave could help them from the outside. I know this is a manga, but it doesn't mean it's impervious against flaws. Using "it's a manga" defense is something a child would say. That's equivalent to a television show about people who sit on a couch and fart the entire time and saying "it's just a TV show."
One last thing which befuddles me is why some people comment here just to disagree with another person or persons who dislike the manga. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so who cares?
@Dickegrobe- I think everyone (at least guys) have done something their not proud of, especially when it comes to masturbation and drunken sex laugh Though I doubt that's the reason many people dislike this manga. The common theme for these "naysayers" (not a hyphenated word BTW) is the excessive fan service. Yeah, I'm an asshole and a hypocrite, but I couldn't help but to point out the similar points.

tl;dr A LOT of fan service, insubstantial plot, original setting, story slowly progresses in most chapters, and primarily sophomore humor. If you like you manga with lot of nearly nude moments, then this one is for you.

Adolescence, ecchiness, below-the-belt humor, more ecchiness, more adolescence... and some echiness as topping. In a good way.

As for the nay-sayers - I guess, you've never been through the hardships of pubertal hornyness to the level where you... well, you'd do things that you wouldn't be proud of a little later. This manga grasps just a bit of exactly that, in a funny way. Then, there is the drawing style that looks rather serious - which makes it even funnier!

So far it is a great laugh, honestly, it's funny as fuck! No traumatised-children-background-bullshit, no questions, no drama (well, I have a bad feeling about that one... fingers crossed, it keeps a no-drama thing)

@guy above
Thanks for pointing out excess hyphens. I was trusting my dictionary with that one...
However, the internet was invented only for the purpose of forcing one's very own opinion onto others (and free porn 24/7).That said, my opinion is more truererer than yours!

This series irks me so much. The boys put up with all the abuse for no reason at all - they are only into the school for a couple of days at most. And then the over the top S&M implication, its inserted into each and every chapter but cant entertain me the slightest. I know speaking of logic in manga is pointless, but its this is just too much :/

The art is quite nice though. And the plot, even though is absurb, also very original.
