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?!

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.

This series is pretty original. Two things really get to me, though. The first is the over-the-top ecchi. There's way too much fan service in each chapter and none of it brings anything to the table as far as plot and character development. It's just stupid and sad. The second is the fact that they're kids being held in a "prison" on school grounds. Has it ever occurred to them that they could literally do whatever they want as far as leaving? Who cares if they have to go to a different school? Or when they try to get info off a computer to help their case, they could just waltz right into the student counsel room and take it. It wouldn't be hard at all. Now, I'd never hit a woman, but if that was the kind of treatment I was getting, I'd simply beat the hell out of them. It's self-defense. Being slapped, kicked, or punched is one thing, but weapons is another thing. Why they (the underground student counsel) aren't in this prison is beyond me. Sure, it's a manga, I'm not stupid, but there's a line between fiction and ridiculous and it's been crossed many times in this series. I just don't know. I'm losing interest in this series fast.
For all these series where a guy puts up with all kinds of stupid crap for the sake of infatuation, there must be a LOT of desperate people who'd think "I'd do that" in order for some of these garbage series to sell. Most of these series I can hardly read, but since it's free, why not. I'd never pay for crap like this. This is basically a manga for kids to buy and jack off to. Whoever says otherwise is truly blind. All the awkward angles make me sick. This series has an interesting story, but I'm beginning to hate it because I just can't appreciate cartoon porn or anything like it.

The problem with this series is the art. Its good, yes. But the art has a rather serious tone to it, and that gives a strange flare to the comedy. I find that the comedy is rather dry, either leading to a over-the-top or thats-not-funny-at-all delivery. And its really hard to tell where its trying to be funny and where its being serious. Things like being forced into extended confinement? Not funny. Regular and savage beatings? Not funny. Public lynching? Not funny. But it seems that its trying to be funny with all of these things. That is to say, there are some parts that are quite amusing (You will just have to find them yourself). Ultimately its not a bad series, especially if you are just looking for some tits, but its not the best thing I have ever read.

When I first read this manga I hope for Devil Blues, still not getting any of that yet, will wait for a year or two to read it again. My hope is not very high though, as I know manga still needs to conform to rating and its audiences' likeness.

Sure, this manga may be problematic in its attitude towards women and gender roles. But that is a systemic problem with manga and Japan in general, not specific to this one manga. Moreover these critiques fail to see how well executed the humor in this manga is. Simply dismissing it as ecchi doesn't acknowledge how good the artist is at physical humor and direction. The plan to escape the school was meticulously built up and well thought out in how it would affect the characters while still being hilarious. The art is exceptional not simply because the character designs are more detailed than most manga but because the mangaka is great to drawing motion and dramatic shots.

The comparison from Prison School to abu ghraib are unfair. The male students could leave if they agree to withdraw from the school. The only reason they are staying is because they want to stay to meet girls. I agree that this situation would not be funny if flipped but that's just indicative of gender norms everywhere. The manga is only getting criticized because its gender norms are more obvious because it has more fanservice. You can appreciate a work of art despite the flawed assumptions of its creator. Instead, read this manga for what it is, a well executed school ecchi manga that has great physical humor and art. Its better than 90% of manga out there.

If you can manage your immediate, instinctive reactions of disgust to make it past 12 chapters, you have a good chance of finding out why some people like this manga.

It doesn't have to be for the ecchi or the BDSM. The story IS really humourous, once you get down to it, precisely because in such an absurd situation, the boys are desperately trying to remain human. And once you see that the girls too are human - if slightly abnormal - then you might actually want to read on. As a tangential sidenote, this manga very strongly reminds me of the conclusions of the "Stanford Prison Experiment" - it's very possible that the characters' outlooks, tendencies and actions are shaped by the positions in which they have been placed.
