Come for the ecchi
Stay for the zaniness and art. One thing that stood out was the guys art on both boys and girl is more of western style which ecchi works like these tend to be. Facial expressions are very well done and add to the humor, which is cliched but executed well in an already hilarious premise. If you loved works like Golden Boy, this would certainly catch on to you. I did mention it was cliched but the art and execution put it over to something that is worth reading if is of your interest.
Don't read this
Well the Art is not bad (but not really outstanding). But ...
The "story" is big BS, period. Everything depends on dumb & made-up coincidences, pure violence, sadism and totally perverted understanding what is allowed in society aaaand a little bit of school romance. Some incidents in this manga are justified in such stupid way, that i thought that the mangaka tried to insult my reasoning personal. Some thoughts on genres and categories: It's IMHO more shounen than seinen. There is no harem, maybe a reverse harem whit the male slaves and their main female warden. And the perverts are whiteout a doubt the girls, almost all of them. And this hardly a comedy, the most comedy scenes in this manga are when somebody is beaten up bloody whit a riot stick (this happens all the time). Let's do this in real life and how funny this turn out to be. In real life a riot stick (the telescopic variant) is deadly, using fists and kicks is bad but a riot stick is over-the-top.
This manga favors more "realistic" faces over some "shounen" faces when it come to facial expressions. This gives the manga the more adult touch. My problem is that the teenagers and kids, which read this manga, learn through this manga that to use violence and being sadistic is really OK. As the comments here shows some teenagers think this is even a "hilarious comedy". Yes, some singular events in this manga could be seen funny IF there were standing alone, but these events aren't singular, there are part of a setting/plot which is disgusting.
I downloaded first and read second. Which was very wrong. So i skipped though the chapters to see if my first impression after volume 1 was wrong. And my first impression wasn't wrong. This manga is a waste of time AND disgusting.
Do not read this, there are a lot of good manga out there.
Many words could be used to describe this manga: weird, silly, disgusting, unrealistic, brilliant,... The boys did a very wrong thing (though common in manga). But that's nothing compared to what the girls did. There are enough things going on here that could land the girls in real jail (unless they're excused for being minors), from blackmailing, unlawful detention, physical torture to sexual harassment... Boobs and panties do little to mask the fact that human rights is being brutally violated for the sake of comedy. The manga went far beyond the typical 'a guy saw a girl bathing and the girl beating him up'. It went into the savage territory,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
to the point that one guy was provoked into almost killing one of the girls out of anger.
This kind of mob justice and parochial mentality is a textbook example of what a civilized legal system exists to prevent. It's also one of those double standards thing. This would never have even got past volume 1 if the genders had been reversed.
If you enjoy things like that infamous youtube video of Chinese school girls stripping a boy naked and humiliating him in a toilet (I forgot the details), perhaps this manga is for you. There is some comedy, mostly owing to the over-the-top nature of this manga. Personally, I've seen far less wholesome manga, it's just hard to decide what kind of category this manga wants to belong to.
This is comedy if you´re into Sadism
After reading several of the comments and looking at a few of the pages this was going to turn into a standard romance comedy highschool-series with better than average drawings, so I thought. How wrong I was. In the course of the first volume basic human rights are violated and the boys are treated like shit from all-powerful females. There is absolutely no comedy to be found in here, if you are not into this kind of torture as people are beaten and beaten again for the slightest amount of resistance. Not to mention that the male cast is horrifyingly submissive and disgusting. You feel sorry for them, but any laughter is bound to be stuck in your throat. I´ve read other mangas where sadism was shown and this is simply without style and going into violence, and not the good kind.
I am rating this a 4 as the drawings are really good, even though the males are distortet at times and the females are very much sexualized to some degree.
This series has such great art and above-average comedy. The whole part about female dominance really turns me off but the comedy and art compensate for it. I probably will look forward for future releases.
Adult Comedy Ecchi Romance School Life Seinen
Can you ask for more? One that can make you Laugh Out Loud I've rarely seen ecchi used as creatively as this. And the best part of this is it has story and a bit of romance. One of the few titles that you can read over again and still appreciate.
Oh my god! This is one of the best manga I read in years! Nothing surprises me much anymore and finding a good new manga is a very hard these days, what with hundreds of mangas I've read. But this one is a true jewel right there, something I have totally not expected.
The humor is amazing, I can't recall when I was crying from laughing too much last time. the art is wonderful, I don't get the complaints, it is one of the most detailed both in charcters, body proportions and backgrounds that I have seen. And of course the gripping plot, with loads of twists and turns, which doesn't let you go until you finished everything.
Totally recommended, an absolute top manga in my list. And coming from me with 15 years of experience with manga, that means a lot.
Not a fan of the art, especially the faces they do on the guys. It shows up in shounen etc a fair enough amount that I try to steer clear from the genres. It's a fine light-hearted read that borders ridiculous. I get suspension of reality, but this stuff goes well beyond the line of what passes for 'normal.' Loads of panty shots and tits half hanging out, which does nothing for this gay boy, but no doubt it blows someone's skirt up.
This manga is really something..
It's beyond my expectations. . Really.. You don't need to read another comments (no offense), just go download and read this manga
