The story starts with a seemingly unassuming class rep Adachi Hana who has taken an interest in the school's known delinquent, Shinagawa Daichi. Just what is her reason for following Daichi and wanting him to go on the class field trip?
Included in volume 11 is the story called Fairy Megane, a crossover between Fairy Tail and Yanki-kun to Megane-chan.

The story starts off with the main guy sitting on a toilet and this random girl showing up above the toilet stall.. in the men's bathroom. Priceless.
The comedy is fabulous without being total gag; it's well-done and fits the story perfectly. The development of the main character is clearly seen throughout the whole story; it is really cool to see him change over time. The main girl goes through some change too, but not quite as much. In fact, all the characters develop at least a little in the story.
I'm a big fan of Hiro Mashima, mangaka of Fairy Tail & Rave Master, and this mangaka worked with him, so it's a personal big plus. ^^
If you like school life, lots of comedy, good art, a little bit of delinquent action, and just a fun read to pass time, I highly recommend Yanki-kun to Megane-chan.
edit: what I wrote above is still true; however, that ending... was really disappointing. Part of it wrapped up nicely but the other half just kinda.. sunk. It doesn't make much sense why the mangaka went this direction. :/ Still a well-developed character with the main guy though.

Loving the storyline
I decided to give this a try after reading Angel Densetsu and oh my goodness, I spendtthis whole week reading through this manga. It is so addicting and I really love each and every character. I love the plot, the concept, and the character's back story. I am hoping there will be more background info on Hana Adachi, because I really love her character and back story. I cannot wait for the rest of the series to be scanlated <3
Some nice high school manga. Being a fan of deliquents in general, made this one even more enjoyable. The only downside of this manga are the last 2 volumes. In short, the ending just sucks. I expected better and was gravely disappointed. Well, up to vol 20/21 it's a good read and I can recommend it.
crashing down to the ground
I was hoping for a sad yet inspiring ending now that adachi disappeared. unfortunately, years of building up a great solid story came crashing down, crumbled in ruins, all because of that bad ending... so bad that I have to go to a psychologist to get rid of what I've just read. GOD KILL ME NOW! I'm so very disappointed to Miki Yoshikawa right now... I hope Yamada-kun to 7-nin no majo doesn't get the same treatment....
lmao, I can't stop laughing when I think about this series. VERY cute and funny, with amazing likable characters. I just love Shinigawa so much, the poor guy... and Adachi, she's so stupid but she's sooo funny and awesome. I can't wait for their relationship to become... more defined!!! And for Adachi to reveal her past a lil more. Like, she HAS to be not as clueless as she looks, right...? Anyway, great manga, I can't see why anyone wouldn't like it.
Funny and original
This manga deserves a chance, respect, and praise. It's so funny and atypical.
People who find the girl annoying are missing the point or looking for something that isn't there. Maybe they want a straight forward, bland girl. We're not privy to her thoughts, which isn't unusual in a love story, except that the comedy is at the fore front so it doesn't feel like a love story(which is a good thing).
It works as a comedy and the two main characters really work. This manga should be finding all sorts of success and it sucks it isn't(yet).

It takes abit of getting into and only really gets good after the other characters start appearing. But it is a shame that the focus had switched for Adachi and Shinagawa to just really on Shinagawa. It's just less interesting having it just focus on Shinagawa.
It's a masterpiece of highschool manga, don't you know?
If you haven't read this already and you enjoy high school manga, you shouldn't hesitate. The beginning starts off a bit slowly but as you meet the full cast, the story gets good quickly.
The theme of the story seems to be outsiders learning what it means to have friends, but there's nothing forced, nothing cheesy. The humor is from the situations, and the theme comes from the situations. There is nothing forced, and nothing preachy. The author isn't trying to talk about the benefits of friendship, but it's a theme that stays behind the laughter and the drama throughout the book.
Now this is entertainment
What can I say? I love comedy. It's good at making me laugh, the heroine is hilarious, the main character is also pretty funny and interesting himself. In-between serious mangas I like reading something feel good with some plot sprinkled in. You should read if you want a good laugh with a few life messages here and there. It may not end up being be your cup of tea, but dare I say, this manga is great. Although nothing alike, this manga gives me a "gintama" type feeling, if you've read that.

It's definitely a manga about Yankees (RECOMMENDED!)
I stumbled into this manga coz I'm a fairy tail fan. Yoshikawa sensei was once mashima sensei's (fairytail) assistant (hence, the slight art similarity)... Yoshikawa seems to be too girly (in my own opinion when I saw one pic of her) BUT this manga she made is definitely pure blood SHOUNEN. And it's not your typical generic shounen, but an awesome one! And she gave justice with the title she gave in this series coz its really full of Yankees . Both main protagonist and main supporting characters are Yankees (though Chiba isn't but he is mistaken as one due to his scary glaring eyes).. Even the so thought to be nerds were once Yankees (except for the computer club)...
I agree with the previous comment that there are two phases in this manga. First one is the randomness of the plot(coz it's a comedy manga). And the second one is where the randomness pauses a bit . Then it focuses on the real story with a lil bit of a slice of life (but I disagree that the comedy is sacrificed coz all chapters makes me laugh). And it is kinda near to my heart coz it slightly touches about being e shut in ( almost a hikikomori. I'm almost becoming one not until I go back to school this June ) and how they helped those neets to go out to the real world....
AND I unexpectedly like the humor. I really get to laugh at it. It's not really forced, but really a natural one... Soooo check it out....
Art: 10/10 (better than fairy tail. Sorry mashima sensei. I'm ur big fan but I honestly think yoshikawa's drawing is better)
Plot : 8.5 (random plot here and there coz its a comedy manga. there are slight inconsistency. But only rare and it is not bothering the story)
Humor: 10 (it's soo natural)
Recommend ? : DEFINITELY a MUST READ!
...one last thing! ( I know my comment is long)... The chapter titles are very interesting! So come on read it now Last last last one! The live action series is kinda disappointing. This one SHOULD be an ANIMATION and NOT a live action...hhmmff
