Daisuke is a 23 year-old new schoolteacher. He ends up being put in charge of a 3rd grade elementary school class since the previous teacher quit, and in that class there's a girl who's quite a troublemaker--Rin Kokonoe. You could call her a masegaki (used to describe a kid that acts more like an adult in some ways), and she's also part tsundere (though more dere than tsun).

A Staple in Loli-Manga   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
by Shakaku
July 23rd, 2011, 2:52pm
If anything, don't judge this series or drop it because of the "Lolicon" or "age gap" tags. This series first starts out somewhat humorous in nature, showing the advances of a young elementary school student (Rin) towards her teacher, who is mortified by her actions. But that path quickly changes direction as the series starts to focus on the hardships and suffering of Rin herself, as well as what led her personality to become so terribly messed up.

This story is surprisingly very deep in many aspects. It questions the ethics we hold in society constantly by bringing up the actions we normally consider taboos into question, such as incest and loli.

It stresses on the fact that not everything in life has "good" or "bad" stapled on top of it and that sometimes good people will break the rules because of their situations or follow their heart into the insurmountable wall known as the law.

This manga shows several aspects that are both the best and worst of human nature. But above all, it lets one feel the raw emotions of the characters as they are driven into despair, hope, happiness, and sadness.

Simply put, this is the touching story of a man born too early and a girl born too late.

Kodomo no Jikan is a Flawed Loli Classic

I do not particularly find lolicon to be to my liking- I find it kinda icky, actually (understatement?)
Kodomo no Jikan is pretty exploitative for the first few volumes. It has copious amounts of fanservice of essentially prepubescent girls. It's pretty messed up. It could definitely do without a lot of the panty shots and scenes of masturbation...><

But then some more serious issues come into play, and the most recent volumes focus more on that than just mindless loli fanservice.

I will say the characters are interesting and very memorable- each one is different, has their own likes, dislikes, etc. I even remember most of the side characters' names.

If you're utterly repulsed by lolicon, you'll probably want to keep away from this one. I am icked out by it, but I can just overlook it in the interest of...well, it's pretty funny. You need to approach this series with an open mind, and if you don't like the loli bits, try to ignore them, because there is more to this story than the cheesecake.

And to topboy- being a girl I can tell you for a fact that about half of the things on your list do happen in real life >>;

Took my like 3 tries to get past the loli and really get into this series, been trying since 2006. As long as you can get past that part, the story is written in a way that Rin (the little girl) acts and thinks at least 4-5 years older than her age. She does have her soft moments as a child, to keep her character possible in reality. Honestly though, this is written in a pure fiction type of way that I don't see why anyone should be even offended.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
If an 11 year old sucking on a 23 year old's d*** is not loli, I don't know what is.

Nevertheless, its worth the read as it has pretty good amount of both serious and not serious to complement each other.

But please, this series deserves the Lolicon genre tag, keep it there.

Yes, even though it's not hentai.
If you object to lolicon in general then you probably won't be impressed with this as there are quite frequent fanservice. But if you are, man, you need to read this.
Whenever you thought "here we go, he's gonna do it!", he never does... which leave you somewhat disappointed. But in the end it actually makes you respect the character (Aoki-sensei).
Cried buckets when reading it but also laughed a lot.

I started reading this on a complete whim I hardly even knew what it was I sort of just expected another random perverted company I soon found myself to be very wrong I was surprised at how well-thought-out and deep each character was every character having his/her own personality characteristics and flaws this series starts out very funny but around half way through I found myself genuinely disturbed not to say the author still didn't find some way to work in the hilarity though it's true that this series should only be read by adults and about the whole moral issue just, remember it's not real it's only a book

What's wrong with you guys!

Look, I want to look at this stuff with my gf and it's not that wierd, I mean a child who had crush on her teacher is normal. There's nothing wrong with that. And don't view children as naturally sexual.

Well, this is just a manga and don't take it to heart if you know what I mean.

I saw the great reviews this story was getting and decided to take a look. I just finished reading up to the latest relase and there are a couple of things I must say. First of all, THIS IS NOT A LOLICON!!! I can't stress that point enough. It does have some lolicon elements and child related fanservice but it is not a lolicon. There is a lot of sexual inuendo and suggestive situations but the actual story is about presenting the hardships children experience as they are growing up and how one teacher is learning about them little by little and helping his students overcome their obstacles. The story is deep, heartwarming at times, highly entertaining, funny, witty, with excellent character development and yes, I'll admit, a bit disturbing at times. Still, that shouldn't deter you from reading this great manga.

Stop using the comment section to get out your stand on the entire "children and sex" issue or your morals, we DON'T CARE what you think; and frankly want to read a comment on the manga itself.

That said...

KnJ touches a lot on confused emotions; due to drastic circumstances happening in a person's life. Parental feelings kick in for many of the characters; making it quite enjoyable to read. I wouldn't recommend this manga for anyone who is very strictly set on the rules of society and it's morals; because it does indeed take a somewhat open mindset to put up with a few situations in this manga.

As for the plot, it certainly does draw you in but as I've said; very touchy. The art is pretty good and gets better as the series goes on; so for those that dislike the earlier drawings you may find it more to your taste later on.

Great Manga!

People will probably think that all KnJ readers are pedos or something of the sort. They just haven't got a clue of what Kodomo no Jikan really is; honestly. At first I was a little shocked because of Rin's attitude towards her teacher and how mature she and her friends acted.

But eventually you realize that Rin, Usa and Mimi are not the only children in this manga. The behavior of some grown up characters strongly resembles the way kids act to some situations.

So far, I wholeheartedly am enjoying this amazing and unic manga. It's a great romance story and the psychological side of every character is simply marvelous and deep.
