His late father always said that a useless man should strive to be useful, so to that end, third-year high school student Nariyuki Yuiga dedicated himself to becoming a high-achieving student in his school, despite his history of poor grades. In order to give his destitute family a better life, his ultimate goal is to obtain the special VIP nomination, a prestigious scholarship covering all future university tuition fees. Although Nariyuki could feasibly be a shoe-in for the nomination, he is constantly overshadowed by classmates Rizu Ogata and Fumino Furuhashi in mathematics and literature, respectively.

To his delight, Nariyuki receives the nomination, but there's a catch: he has to tutor his two star classmates, who are each hopelessly mediocre at the other’s subject of expertise! To make matters worse, the subjects they are horrible at are the same subjects they want to pursue for their future. As the time to submit university applications draws nearer, Nariyuki must find an effective tutoring method for the girls before it’s too late.

"It's a pretty good lighthearted RomCom and it's damned hilarious sometimes, although the fanservice can be a bit excessive once in a while. I'd read it if you're into the RomCom genre."

I love this harem series, it's amazing. Just hoping it won't end up like nisekoi or the world god only know, where the MC choose 1 heroine or make other heroine/s crying (I'm looking at you nisekoi)
Don't say anything about bland or repetitive, this is what Japanese called 'template'
Just be honest, sometimes we need a thing that easy to swallow or a reality escapement, that is why Japanese always do create something like this.
So if it's not your cup of tea, just give us some respect and let it pass.

The other reviewer rated this really low and it is understandable why he/she did. Everyone has different opinions on manga and some might hate how there are similar plots seen everywhere. Personally, I'm fine with all these recurring plots and if a author sees a type of popular plot, of course they would also do the same and have similar plots. If you're fine with recurring plots, JUST READ IT! The main character is surrounded by girls for a reason, its ecchi + harem after all.

Unlike zelly, the teacher is my favorite out of them all, it would still be fine if she wasn't a teacher, I like the chapters that include her. I also enjoy everything else that this manga offers.

Thank you for reading this.

I am shocked by the fact that this "plot" pattern is still a thing and actual human beings sit and create these. Nisekoi, Haganai, Oreimo, SAO and at least 1000 other titles use the same formular. The characters are acting over the top, they are unrealistic and almost always have the same reaction plus little to no developement. Then theres only one male(lead) with one or two male friends who barely even appear (bcos readers find diq disgusting I guess). And of course he is magically surrounded by at least four girls one with big breasts another one is tiny and cute. the next chic is a tsundere. oh and dont forget the mature woman who happens to be a teacher and develops a crush on her student. ew.
The art is cute but theres nothing that distinguishs it from every other shounen, echi, harem story so no point for that from me,
The autor tried to throw in some tragic past for the poor main guy which felt totaly out of place? Like are you trying to compensate his sad past with tits?
I´m not even against ecchi or harem but sometimes I wonder wether these autors are even allowed to use the same schtick over and over again. The words plagiarism and homage exist but then again shoujo mangakas do the same shit.
For a manga that was first published in 2017 its outdated and bland and if it´s trying to deliver some important message(wut lol) other than fanservice, it shat itself.
