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).

Always Cute, often Funny, very Pervy, and sometimes Deep?

I expected cute, funny, and pervy, but I was surprised to see that there is some depth to it. I look forward those dramatic issues to be addressed amid some more over the top loli-humor. The scene with the caligraphy is a spit take waiting to happen. Do be wary of beverages while reading.

One of the things that made me want to learn Japanese was a Dating Sim game called Peace@Pieces. As I found out its more or less the same as this manga here. It doesn't make me feel awkward much except at the point in the 4th Volume at the end where the guardian-brother of the heroine had some nasty thoughts about the girl's breast. Since its a manga and not real its actually a bit refreshing since ofcourse it stays ecchi and doesn;t turn out hentai. I can tolerate a shy teacher that is teased by one of his students. The bad would be the teacher trying to do things. Ofcourse since I am not in the shoes of a teacher and will never be I can't comment much. Overall at least up to the 4th Volume the manga stays funny. I am looking forward to see what will happen in the continue. I am guessing since the 3rd school year was 3 volumes the other will be 3 each too so in total 12 volumes. It will be really interesting to see how this whole thing goes but I hope the ending will not be one of the "usual" things that I am already imagining. Also I wonder if the anime will be as good as the manga =3 Dats all I have to say ^^


Its been a while since I even tried to even read this. I did like the concept of the manga, a story of a girl that needs to be helped and a really kind teacher that she was lucky enough to meet. My problem is not the story itself, but more like the drawings, that unlike the anime that seems to keep the ecchiness to a normal level, as the manga is tagged right, this one is mature. I will try to once more read it again, but I am sure that this manga, like many manga, are infested with drawings that ruin the story for me.

A surprisingly well-written lolicon fest ^_^

Kodomo no Jikan is about Daisuke Aoki, a new schoolteacher to a bunch of 3rd Graders in elementary school. Due to his inexperience he's having trouble with the kids but there's one girl in particular he's finding hard to control and that's because she got a huge crush on him .

This is a lolicon manga so it's full of cute little girls and all the character designs suit it perfectly. It just lacks some detail with the rest.

Final Thoughts:-
This turns out to be a surprisingly hilarious and well-written comedy that somewhat reminds me of the anime GTO. The perverted jokes are completely original yet I didn't rate it any higher because of the awkward feeling I got after each joke. Something is just not right when you have 3rd Grade girls talking about having sex. ^_^

Yes the loli fanservice is disturbing but the manga overall is great. The whole 3rd (or now 4th grader) going after the teacher and being very adult is pretty funny but there are also other themes that make this interesting. You've got a lesbian child, a child who has serious emotional issues, a child who was abandoned by their father and mother dies when the child is at a young age, a guardian who experiences similar issues during his childhood as one of the emotional children and two other teachers who bring different moods with their different personality (a very positive person vs a very hard headed negative person).


Ok I have reached chapter 33. This is officially a must read. If you thought the series was controversial in the earlier stages oh buddy you have to keep reading. And I am not saying this because it because of the fanservice. The fanservice doesn't even take the cake of the recent events!

I reviewed Kodomo no Jikan negatively years back, it used to make me uncomfortable. I have now gone completely desensitized to loli fan-service thanks to Ore no Imouto, Tomodachi, Umi no Misaki, Toradora!, Lotte no Omocha, IO, Denpa Onna, Mayo Chiki, Yuria 100 Shiki, My Balls, and so on and so on (every damn "love" story nowadays has a loli in it).

I still read it to this day, it's a great "teenage love story" with a "taboo twist" to make it interesting, that is all.

Think GTO, make them gals loli, remove other boys from the story, give the female co-teacher a humongous chest, dissipate Onizuka's coolness factor, and that's Kojika in a nutshell.

Seriously, I like this. Despite its loli content, the conflicts presiding in the manga are very well presented.

I have currently read up to the most recent chapter of the manga and I must say that its really nice up to this point.Ignoring for now the whole loli factor the story is really nice the characters develop in a interesting way.The teacher gaining experience in teaching and also the trust his students,the kids seeking attention and recognition from the teacher and parents,problems like to choose either to be a emotionless doll and deaf to the problems of kids and leave their problems to parents ,or give a helping hand.If you watch closely its all there.
People seem to get a little paranoid about the whole loli thing.I say chill out.Its really not that bad in comparison to some other "disturbing" stuff out there.And its funny as hell sometimes;p
I dont consider it a loli(hentai) manga like some because thats not the only aspect of it.( ecchi would be a more fitting word).They dont fit it everywhere by force.
Its something like
GTO+loli--(the teacher is a pervert)+(its some kids that are a little perverted)

Overall the manga is interesting and a very nice read.Recommended.

for some reason this manga feels kreepy, maybe because the male lead is being controlled by the loli andtotally ignoring the big breasted teacher but if you can get passed thet its an okay read

I really wish people would at least try to look beyond what they see with their eyes. Sure it's got loli fan-service but what series doesn't now a days. Besides it's not all about the loli the story is about a teacher and his students trying to find a common ground for understanding one another. The teacher is a not pedo or prev neither he's just a nice guy forced to work with group of troubled children and for those of you who say oh lord kids shouldn't say/do those kinds of things. You all seem to have forgotten that in anime/manga kids hardly ever act like kids. They are either twice as annoying, smarter then adults, or a combo of both so why should this be any different. 10/10
