Onani means masturbation. And that's what this guy is good at. Every day after school, he sneaks into the mostly unused girls bathroom on the 3rd floor, and masturbates. Until one day, when he's caught by a bullied girl with a hidden agenda...
This is a story of mistakes, redemption, and the choices made in between. It contains the worst and best of the human condition.

Way Better than you Might Expect. Even Better Than That!
Geez this was so good and so short. I'm just at a loss for words.
Just know there's way more than what appears on the surface -- this is not about masturbation, but something far greater.
It blew my mind
Clearly, the pun was intended but that's what it did for me. The manga makes you think as if you're Kurosawa himself. You see his inner self and his most private thoughts. The art emphasizes this and you end up feeling everything he feels. When he feels dirty, ashamed, angry, proud, happy or even in love. I have never read anything that delves into the mind of a character so well.
This is a story about how he deals with his perverse hobby and the mistakes along the way. Very dramatic and cheerful at the same time. I can honestly refer this manga as the best I have ever read.
At first I was skeptic about it. I thought "how can a manga about masturbation have such good ratings. Were the critics high?" But it turned out, they weren't. This manga is surpringly good. When I was done reading the last chapter, I felt like a chapter of my life was closing. This is the greatest "slice of life" genre you will read.

I feel dirty.
I can't believe a manga about masturbation made me fucking cry.
Like, seriously bawl. Heartbreaking and ridiculously sweet. Throughout the first chapters, you might think, "Oh god, this is so gross," but everything in this manga is done for a purpose, even the most subtle things. The random anime references seem out of place, but give it a little thought and you get some real insight into the main character's feelings - even if he doesn't admit them to himself.
Go read it. There's a reason everyone and their brother is giving this a 10.
This will be the shortest and easiest comment I'll ever make at Baka-Updates. Since what needs to be said about Onani Master Kurosawa has already been said, me blabbing any further would only be a waste of superlatives. I will, however, say this:
That this is a doujinshi is probably the best thing that ever happened to this story. Being a doujinshi, it is free from the shackles any other manga baring the same genres would normally be constrained to, and does what it wants, not what an editor wants. I laugh at the pretentious, self-applauding clowns who claim they can see how this ends after reading a few chapters. You can't. You were wrong. If you claim otherwise, you're lying. And I will argue that point until nothing makes sense anymore.
If you don't read this, you're a fool. If you do read this and don't like it, you probably didn't understand it's intent, therefore, are also a fool. If you did read this, understood it's intent, and still didn't like it, you're insanely hard to please, emphasis on the word 'insane'.
If I had a friend interested in getting into manga, this would be among the titles I would recommend to her/him.
That 1/2 a point is me wishing I had more to read. Selfish and perhaps a bit ironic, yes. But I feel my little rebellion is somewhat justified.

Dont stop reading at the start... it gets better
I Was looking for a mature/ecchi/psychological/Romance manga. Then I found this, so I started reading and it sucked at the start (just some middle school kid jerking off in the girls toilet... but then the plot thickened and I got interested. just not to spoil things; you will experience extreme sadness up to anger, jealousy and enlightenment. A must read!
In spite of the rating and comments this manga comes as a total surprise. You read the description and expect one thing but, as you start reading it, it quickly turns in something completely different. This manga came by storm and ranked up among top 3 in my book. Art is simple phenomenal and the story compels you and makes you read on. It touches the deepest reaches of human soul, and brings out the best but also the worst inside of us. And that is the true value of this masterpiece. So in an unlikely occurrence that this manga is still not on your complete list make sure you put it there as soon as possible.
I finished reading this and was just struck with that one thought. It's amazing. It rings true and I love how the characters are developed. The last bit was pretty fun. I was hesitant at first about the "onani" part, but the last bit just makes it funny.

A rare "good" doujinshi
I think it is a very good manga, aside from its intentional ploy to be contextual. Lovely characters (well, at least personally), ranging from lost-in-deep-thought quiet, sick young man to a vengeance-obsessive reclusive girl whose both personalities somewhat finds connection in secret, from cheerful and persistent (or maybe ignorant lol) guy friend to mysteriously high-spirited girl whose picture keeps the balance of the life of the title character. I love its honest approach towards the issue of isolation and how it handles its characters without blaming them on their own free will. I think the best part of it is its climax, as twisted and unprecedented as life can be, which refers the whole story into kind of realism. Many thanks to the scanlators.
I really loved it, at first i though it was some hentai manga but when you go deeper in the story you see that there is friendship, love, ... the end really touched. also at i though his expresion was alot kinder.
