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).

Cool in Comics, Fuck it in Reality

Wow, the first comment on this page made me laugh out loud. Children are naturally sexual? What loli-centric world is your ass living in? Don’t get me wrong, “Kodomo no Jikan” is hilarious. It has a feel to it that goes beyond normal ecchi to the point of disturbing and people love disturbing. It’s the same reason I own every issue of “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac”. Disturbing is fun.

However; the CHARACTERS in the comic are just that, characters and if Daisuke or Reiji existed in reality I would have both of them arrested. It is one thing for a child to be question themselves sexually around the age of nine or ten. They may want to kiss an adult, the adult, however should not allow the child to thrust her tongue into his mouth and then speculate how it tasted of milk. Children her age should also not be anywhere near aware of oral sex. Kids who are, are most likely being abused statistically and no ten year old has boobs like Mimi.

I think it is just fine as a manga, however if I saw such a relationship in reality I would beat Aoki within an inch of his life. Characters on pages can’t suffer from long term scars after the final volume, ya know?

I do suggest it as a good read though. The plot turns very psychological later on. However, if they decided to try releasing it in the US again, just wrapping it in plastic wouldn’t work. Duct tape that shit.

Modern society has elevated the protection of children to such a level that an adult acting in a kind, genuinely caring manner, can be percieved as a malicious sexual predator, prowling for their next victim. We have reached the level of paranoia, and show no signs of slowing our progress toward an overprotective insanity that is, in the end, a detrement to society, rather than a benefit. Children are important, and should be protected, but the extent to which we have taken it, mostly thanks to mass media, is absurd.

I open my comment on this title with the preceding statement for a very specific reason: Kodomo no Jikan contains controversial material depicting children in an unapologetically realistic manner. It explores a fact often overlooked by adults hellbent on sheltering their children from anything even remotely related to sex: children are sexual beings, capable of feeling everything an adult does, and often without the proper foresight or warning (probably due to said overprotectiveness.)

To anyone enraged over the alleged "loli fanservice" in this title, I implore you: please stop being a part of the problem, and understand that everything depicted in this series is deliberate and with purpose. That purpose is to clearly depict, in an accurate-to-real-life-children manner, the characters portrayed in the story. A story which explores, in-depth, the physical, emotional, and sexual growth a child experiences while maturing, and the difficulties associated with incorporating that growth into their everyday lives. This title dares to explore—and illustrate—the child pshyche, and touches on many topics, including family, friendship, parenthood, self-discovery, sexuality, psychological trauma, love, responsibility, death, separation, trust, honesty... I could go on for a while. So many important themes are approached in such an honest, deliberate, straightforward manner, that it becomes infuriating to see the blatant ignorance of people despising this title because of its child-oriented sexual content.

You don't have to enjoy reading about little kids depicted in this manner, but please don't ignorantly claim this title is somehow socially dangerous without even admitting it could possibly contain important messages and themes addressing something all too often ignored by a culture hell-bent on sheltering children well beyond the necessary.

At first 4 or 5 volumes, this manga show promise, good sight of storyline/drama but after some disgusting chapter even hardcore fan who buy figurines & LE manga and even translated it himself decide to stop follow it, pity but i can understand him.

However if you are in to lolicon, like manga is especially for you.

Don't let the lolicon/ecchi theme turn you down. You'll be amazed at how the author tackles the subjects present in the manga. I'm just speechless. Read up to Vol. 6 and you'll definitely want more of it.

Like others, I was quite disturbed by the age of the main girl but after reading it more, I realised that it's not that big a deal. There are many sexual innuendos made for comedic effect but that's really it, the main story itself is not sexual. It turns more psychological as the story moves along and it explores the characters' depth in great detail.

Despite first glance where it may seem like a cheap, typical and tacky story with fanservice and pantsu shots, it is actually a story with a very well planned out plot with hilarious situations and jokes made equally throughout. People have just got to read past the inital few chapters to really get down to the heart of this story. It's just a great shame how many refuse to even give it a chance, judging the story first before even reading it.

If this was released in english I would have actually supported the mangaka and bought it but too bad it was rejected and cancelled.

This manga isnt something that everyone will read till the end or understand it, and its definitely not something that underage readers, who cant give it a proper though, should read.

It has some lolicon involved, and in the begining everyone probably would get the wrong idea, but as it proceeds to the later chapters its a whole other story. I havent tryed reading other lolicon mangas due to its content, but this manga surely is different from what a assumed it would be, maybe due to its done by a female mangake and wasnt intended to satisfy some perverts.

Overall its a great manga with well done plot.

This manga i agree can be a bit disturbing, but thats only your first impression, if people think that those 9 and 10 year olds qualify as a fan service they're the lolicons, but i believe this manga has a lot of depth. The first time through you think this is going to be some kind of gag manga revolving around Rin being perverted to Daisuke, but in reality, thats it's comic relief. When it goes into the characters thoughts, it's more like the Mangaka was planning it that way, and not just wanted to shock people with the "Hot for Teacher" mentality.
Everyone has their own reasons for acting the way they do, and it's not some cliche reason like: She was a space alien, or she can do magic. No! They are all legit problems, such as a girl who is self-conscious of her body growing up, or a strict teacher how when she was a child was pressured to stay away from relationships to focus on studying and now is socially awkward. These are not groundbreaking by any means, but they take it more seriously (Sometimes).
Well All in all, it's a great manga that pushes away from the fantasy, and adds a bit more to SOME reality, so if you are a person that thinks this is to wrong to watch, your full of yourself, you just don't want the temptation, 10

One of the very few emotionally genuine pieces of fiction I've ever read, and one that doesn't use the cheap tricks of shallow fantasy to get there. It's a damned shame that the racier parts of it denied it a professional English-language release, and ironic too, as it rather realistically depicts a child with a pretense of precocious sexuality and makes several arguments against adults who’d exploit such a thing. It would certainly be far easier just to appeal to Japan's lolicon demographic with cheap fantasy, something a great many series are guilty of in small ways, but Watashiya chooses the harder, better route. This single title has made her one of my most respected authors.
