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).

[edit by mod, may contain spoilers]

Now we have got to the point where the 3 girls have their "apples of their eye" rin=daisuke, kuro-chan=shiro-chan, usa-chan=reiji. Now that shiro-chan is taking kuro-chan's attention, I wonder how that will pan out. That was a big suprise for me. How will reiji take the fact that he is losing to aoki-sensei? Will he give up and take usa instead?

The story is so great right now, I understand there won't be a weekly release, but I'd sure like one. I need to find out what magazine this story is in.

I was watching the anime and it seems that there is a whole lot about aki, that I don't remember, I need to go back and read. Well I want to re-read the story anyways before there becomes too many chapters.

even when they look pedo related?! This manga surprised me greatly in the fact that i actually enjoyed reading most of the chapters. Sure there are some disturbing scenes but the plot is solid, the kids are cute (although somethings a bit wrong with the main character child) and it also makes u think psychologically about children's mental development. I would give it a solid 9 even though two of the three female children really think like an adolescent child or older not a, 3rd grader.

i think it's kinda cute! i mean, girls always think like that when there were young about their teacher (male)... only because that's a grown up and not your dad(ew if you think about it) and young girls dont usually think of guys their own age

This should go without saying but do not let the kids read this.

Great art, great story and lots of sexual innuendo with some more graphic stuff popping in once or twice so far. This truly is loli. If you can get past that, be wary that it carries a strong dramatic element to it at times

So far, it feels like it's been a roller coaster that hasn't hit its apex yet. It frightens me a bit to think if/when it all comes crashing down.

9.5/10 if u r into loli 8 if u r not, the loli annoys me as hell sometimes. However, I really like the development, it's very natural and delicate

Ok, i just want to clarify that i've been giving this manga the benefit of the doubt for the lolicon tendencies and thus far the manga has been pretty entertaining. The teacher, Aoki is a decent guy who cares and the story is pretty interesting so far. But the latest chapter(31) is freaking me out..... I'm starting to get 2nd thoughts.

I wouldn't say the manga is shocking. Look at "Midori No Hibi": a girl grows on a guy's hand. How crazy is that? Anyway, the manga is very cute, and I got a boner a couple of times, but that's OK I guess. Right? Right?!.. Hey, where're you going?

[edit by mod,Warning: possible spoilers]
I have read 30.5 chapters so far, and I own the first 4 japanese volumes.

Lets start by examining WHY this series is so controversial. The main character Rin Konokoe has a crush on Aoki-sensei her Teacher. The problem is less about how she feeels about Aoki and more about how she expresses her affections. Rin is what some people would refer to as precocious. Specifically she approaches Aoki in a sexually inapropriate manner, she does everything she can to make it clear to him that she wants to have a intimate relationship with him.

This is about where most people's brains shut down and they either lose interest or start attacking the premise without knowing the story.

Life imitates art which imitates life. Rin gets the only real molester in the manga incarcerated right at the start of the series. It happens to be her principal, the real irony is this series was dropped from several stations in Japan and censored like crazy by the one that did broadcast it because a real principal was found to be a molester at about the same it was to be aired.

What most people miss is that Aoki really cares about his students. Despite Rin's advances, he focuses on being thier teacher. I can admit that I have seen a few things in the manga so far that probably would shock some people. For instance, Rin has a realy bad habit of kissing Aoki and trying to flash her panties at him, but aside from the principal who wound up in jail right at the start, I have not yet seen an adult act sexually towards any of the children. Anything that does happen is initiated by Rin and is always turned down.

There are definitely cultural elements that will confuse non-japanese, but this is an excellent series that should not be over looked because of the surface vineer.

All the criticism directed at this series that I have heard and read so far comes from the same mindset that thinks the human body and sexuality are "dirty", those individuals will see things there that do not exist. As a result our cultural exposure is more limited because that very vocal minority usually tries to ban what they do not want to read themselves

The unfortunate thing is there is not a reasonable distribution method available to provide manga to adults when the censors decide to be our moral guide.

I have read thousands of manga, but this series is one of my favorite. Don't judge this book by it's cover or on peoples comments alone. Read it with an open mind and decide for yourself. I think it's funny and in a quirky way somewhat romantic. Poor Aoki actually has a thing for a fellow teacher who is "considerably well endowed", but every time they almost wind up together, in comes Rin who spoils it all.

It is worth the time to really read it.

- Kouhei
