Troy and the gang of East High School are going through their senior year, facing graduating and going their separate ways. Coming to terms with the reality of it all, Troy wants to attend the nearby University of New Mexico next year on a basketball scholarship, but Gabriella wants to attend Julliard School of Arts in New York to set her sights on becoming an artist. Meanwhile, Sharpay, the school's shallow and spoiled rich girl, plots to go all out planning the school's final musical show with the idea to add music to her hopes and fears about the future. While Sharpay takes an up-and-coming British exchange student under her wing, her flamboyant fraternal twin brother, Ryan, has his sights set on something different after school. In addition, Troy's best friend and basketball teammate Chad, and Garbiella's best friend Taylor, all have their sights set on their plans after high school and come to terms with the reality of the real world.

Honestly, I was trying to look for the manga with lowest rating, just for fun. I have to admit that I was surprised to come across this manga. I think this doesn't deserve 2 point. I think, based on ten pages, deserved 7 rating. I have seen loads of shoujo manga with worse art quality, story plot, and characters than this one.

Just don't put on one point just because you hate the live action. Just shut up and read this!

When i was browsing for a new manga to read i was pretty shocked to come across this one!
Its is pretty funny that they're making this into a manga, its still a teaser, with few pages ( 10 pg's), so its hard to judge if its going to be good or bad, but i'm interested on how they're going to make a musical into a manga. I don't think this is going to end well... Not even sure if they're going to continue it.

Haha. This has become the lowest rated series, not counting the unrated series. Even the worst series somehow managed to get a 5, but this actually got a 2. I guess it made Baka-Updates history, in a way? Kind of funny. Here's the proof:
Guess it's subject to change but it should be around those pages.

Oh yes and I'm not going to offer my opinion after seeing all the bias this series already faces. It feels kind of unfair to rate something when you don't like it or have no interest in it. It's a somewhat prejudiced opinion (or as with some comments, a sort of grudge) if I vote off of my preconceptions of this tweenish fad.

well basically what the subject said- who knew this would become a manga- i just cannot believe it. Personally though, looking at the cover of volume one i would have to say the people could've been drawn a little better, and that i don't that a lot of people are gonna read it, probably only the ones that are true HSM fans.

Solid shoujo

I strongly suspect the vast majority of the people that rated this manga a "1" didn't read a page of it. So you hate the live-action and hate that Disney is trying to make more money off of it. So do I, to a degree. It's not like scanlations cost money to read.

This is a solid typical shoujo. The storyline is actually better than a fair amount of others in its genre. The art is also solid and typical. It's certainly nothing special, but it's nothing horrible, either. It would be a great way to introduce young girls that are fans of the movie to the world of manga. If you're a fan of the movie, you will almost definitely like it. If you're a fan of typical shoujo, you may like it as well. But don't whack it before you try it.

Personally, I hate everything High School Musical. I don't even like musicals in the first place, so that explains a lot. Still, even if the Manga is "Fair" and the characters are much more 'Good-lookin' than in real life, this still isn't my cup of tea.

Shoujo manga is... great sometimes, but when they use romantic stories all the time, it gets old. I would've rather read Powerpuff Girls Z, instead of this crap -_-

I do not like High School Musical a lot but I don't think this even deserves a 1. Pretty unfair if you haven't even read the manga yet to just give it a one because you think that the live action is crap. But the art is nice.

I'm actually glad people are shocked by this, to be honest i thought i would have been the only one! Most of the people in my school + everywhere literally love this overrated bad excuse for a series. And now a manga? What is coming of the world of manga? My love for shoujo has literally gone through the window O_o

This is another lame way Disney wants to get money off of people. Hopefully no one will translate or scan this cr*p. Enough already, we've seen and reseen all those stupid commerials and all those products about HSM, but even a manga??
