All through middle school, Touto was the tough kid that people either fought, feared, or avoided. Resolving that his high school life will be different, he studied hard and entered a prestigious high school. Despite his harsh demeanor and odd behavior, he manages to make two friends right off the bat, two hopeful students who are also trying to recreate themselves. Timid Miyakoe, who is interested in the occult, was always overlooked in middle school, and she wants her presence to matter in high school. Chubby Yuta wants to erase his school history of being constantly bullied.

Everything is going well until Miyakoe disappears while investigating a scary school myth. Going after her, Yuta and Touto encounter a dangerous cellphone monster! When all seems lost, Touto's cellphone-strap good-luck charm comes to life to give him the strength to defend his new friends. It seems that Touto's high school life is going to be much stranger than he could have ever imagined!

Mayumi does a lot of shounen that would do better published in a shoujo mag instead, and this is no exception. A "bishie" cat-boy as a narrator? In a shounen magazine? Seriously?

The story's OK, similar to a lot of her other works, the art and character design is good, but again quite shoujo, and the plot is solid. Can be somewhat repetitive though.

It's interesting, but nothing too special. I wouldn't go ahead and call it a great manga or a must read either, but it serves as a time-passer well.

It's not really my type either, the comedies are somewhat the type I'd call "embarrassing". With that said, there's nothing real bad about it either. Nothing to make me hate it, nothing to make me love it. Kinda your average run-of-the-mill.

The thing with these though, often I drop these when I get tired waiting for updates. They rust in the corner forgotten... lol. Basically, they aren't bad if you manage to read them in one go, but I highly doubt I'll have the chance to finish this before getting tired and dropping it.

Good mix of stylish and cute art, quirky humor and nice action scenes.

Interestingly, despite most chapters being around 30 pages, this reads amazingly fast. Combine this and frequent cliffhangers and you have the makings of some painful wait times. For those who are worried about such things, the first two chapters is a safe starting off point to get a feel for what this manga has to offer.

So far i think this manga has a pretty interesting storyline.
The art for one is very nice and i think the characters are well drawn. The story plot is quite unique as there is an ex delinquent trying to become someone different and he befriends an ex bully victim and a girl who was once too shy. The mangaka makes great use of these different characters and adds a lot of humour into it.
I've got to say, i love the main character Touto smile he looks pretty fierce but he's soo cute!
He has all these missions on becoming a better student and making friends and he gets so worked up about it.
There is also this girl with the guitar (manga cover - she has short blue hair) who is drawn just as well as Touto and i like her because she's pretty tough but understanding at the same time. She has a pretty face but she's not one of those annoying cutesy girls and i think if she and Touto went out together they wud seriously be perfect!

Can't wait to read more chapters and i recommend this to all you that want great art, unique fighting scenes and characters that will make you smile.
.......> so far i dislike nothing smile but i'll expect some sort of romance?<.........
