The story starts with a seemingly unassuming class rep Adachi Hana who has taken an interest in the school's known delinquent, Shinagawa Daichi. Just what is her reason for following Daichi and wanting him to go on the class field trip?
Included in volume 11 is the story called Fairy Megane, a crossover between Fairy Tail and Yanki-kun to Megane-chan.

My impressions so far are.... this series is slightly slapstick and running upon an unconventional female lead who doesn't take center stage every chapter after the intro. In fact, as the story branches off to embrace other characters, the female lead kinda recedes into the background while the male lead takes dominance. They're both opportunely smart and dense.
Basically, this series is just for fun. so enjoy it as it is.

This manga is relatively easy to start and is enjoyable to read. Although there isn't much of a plot, there's enough comedy that it doesn't turn stale. First, there's Shinagawa, who for all his delinquent might, is incapable of ridding himself of Adachi and there's Adachi, who's naivete provides most if not all the comedy of this manga. Honestly, this is the type of manga which should have been licensed worldwide already and be more popular than it is but sadly isn't.
i adore yankee-kun; what a great lead male! how much he worries about megane-chan liking him is really adorable and adds a whole new side to the typical "school drama" story! I love it! i cannot believe there's 7 volumes in japan already!! i can't wait for more scanlations!
Really funny stuff, therefore I give it a 10 now. But it can't go on this way much longer because it will become repetitive very soon. I hope the mangaka can find some way to advance the story and the characters and still being so funny...
Fun light intertening Good timing with the gag I hope they will keep on
The story had its moments but dragged a lot of the times. The momentum of the story is often disrupted between chapters, especially when the author leaves a conflict unresolved and moves on to another conflict. The author also seem to have a tendency to introduce a new character, but then shift the focus on to something else which spans several chapters before coming back to re-focus on the new character (which by then, I would have lost interest or forgotten about the new character). This mostly happens in the beginning and less so as the manga goes on. I think this is part of the reason why I have difficulty remembering and maintaining interest in majority of the cast in the manga.
The art strongly reminds me of Mashima Hiro's works...which I like. I'm guessing the author may have worked with him before she started this manga or was somehow influenced by his works.
It had a lot of hilarious moments as well as frustrating face-palm moments - mostly in relation to Adachi Hana who, to me, doesn't seem to mesh well with other characters (her remarks are just too random and unrelated to the conflict at hand a lot of the time). There has been very little character development for Adachi Hana - hardly any moments of vulnerability, a betterment of character. She mostly just stays the same throughout the entire manga, oblivious and in her own world. Considering that she is the female heroine, the lack of character development and insight into her past is probably the most disappointing factor for me as well as the lack of romantic interaction between her and the male protagonist. But then again this manga was cancelled before anything about Hana's past could be revealed, sparks could fly between her and the male protagonist, or any character development for her. So I guess I'll cut the manga some slack.
But nonetheless, the manga is interesting and worthwhile to read when it isn't jumping all over the place, or introducing new characters left and right without elaboration on their stories.
a MUST read with slow releases
the story really reminds me of Beelzebub. without demons. you have delinquents fighting and groups of superior fighters. the story is more realistic and down to earth though. it focuses on the characters' high school lives and how they move to college. once again, i have found another manga with great comedy.
the art is relatively better than most shounen. the first volumes had detailed scenes and pictures. though, as volumes passed, the art became more rushed, somehow looking quite similar to Fairy Tail's. even as the art evolved, good proportion and style was observed.
the comedy in this manga is really great! its not your usual type of comedy. the two main characters really make a hilarious duo. the supporting characters add the humor by making witty side comments and all.
well, i dont have much say in the plot. its not that serious or deep. it fits the theme of the manga anyway. even though the plot is quite simple as of the moment, character development is observed and portrayed well.
unfortunately, the manga has slooow updates. the manga is already completed though. you can also try reading Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo. its another work of the same author.
Awesome Slapstick Humor
I really enjoy every chapter of yankee x megane xD You wont be disappointed, plus it's good to read when you need a really big laugh Unique characters, unique personality, and so every chapters will leave you clinging for oxygen~
Wow. This manga was definitely a good find. It's funny and enjoyable! The craziness, lovable characters and originality (well as far as I'm concerned) is amazing! I love the somewhat mysterious baka megane-chan.and the male protagonist has he's own charm in the story. Romance is not part of the genre but there is some love comedy (more so later) - though I think it mainly revolves around the comedic life of the main characters.

If only I can buy this XD
This story is too hilarious. Usually when I read manga I don't laugh out loud but when I was reading this, I was laughing like crazy. Seriously, everything about this story is awesome! Characters are awesome and the art is awesome (especially with the little chibis here and there). I'm totally addicted to this and I'm a shoujo kind of person too.
