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).

Great despite theme

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

Any mention of the "L" word just sucks my subconscious right in.
I'm talking about "love" you sickos bigrazz
Anyways. Absolutely amazing story. I love it to bits. Can't wait for the rest of the story.

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

Sure, it's perverted and deals with how young children cope with sexuality. But you know? Having known a lot of teachers in and out of my family, I can state that such "sexual pranks" are tame compared to what some kids do in school like joking about rape, distributing pornography and trying to seduce their teachers so they can sleep with them(I'm talking about those between 6 to 9 yrs old btw).

Still, is it really right to depict minors in such a situation(panty shots, etc.)? Who knows.

Edit: Anyways, I only read a few chapters before I got bored. I'm betting that the reason why this series is so popular is 'cos of its' controversional theme, the lolicon gals and the fanservice. Though, I admit the plot angle about the teachers' issues with problem students and their views on the educational system was quite well done, though that angle can't compensate for all the boring fanservice.

It may not be your cop of tea, and because i like it doesnt make me a pedo. Children that age can talk that fluently about sex, because the world is turning out that way. I also very much doubt that the teacher is so far gone that he should be in jail. This really is a good and interestiong story at least for me, and many other people.

I thought I could enjoy this series but I really cant help it, I'm not a loli pedo after all; how can children talk so fluently about sex at that age?? And how the hell can a teacher let himself be taken in the flow?? He should be in jail already! Really, what's up with his messed up mind?!
