Yamada has one goal when she enters high school.: She wants to sleep with 100 guys. But she's got one small problem: She's a virgin. Afraid of being rejected or ridiculed by hot or experienced guys, she decides that in order for her to reach her goal, she first has to do "it" with another virgin. While in a bookstore, she bumps into an average-looking boy (named Kosuda), and decides he's the perfect candidate. Will Yamada succeed in getting Kosuda to bed, or will something more bloom from the not-so-innocent start to their relationship?

The kind of comedy Love Hina wishes it had   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0
by Celianna

B Gata H Kei translates to B-cupped Slut. That pretty much sums up the whole main character.

Except that she wants to be a slut, but she's not. Meet Yamada, 15 year old girl in high school, and since a year, has known about sex and masturbation. Her goal is to have a 100 sex partners (or was it a 1000?) in her life. Since she's really pretty and very popular among the guys, you'd think she'd be whoring herself all over the place, right? Wrong. Yamada gets paranoid every time a hot guy shows interest in her. She thinks that once she has sex with them, they'll make fun of her because she's still .... a virgin!

So Yamada is still a virgin, yet she desperately wants to have sex with as many people as possible. Unfortunately, her paranoid and obsessive behavior outright rejects all advances made on her. Then she has a brilliant idea; if she has sex with a virgin, then they can't make fun of her, because they wouldn't know any better! Yamada then sets her eyes on the most plain guy you'll ever meet.

Kosuda is a plain, regular high school guy, who happens to be in Yamada's class. Yamada sees him and claims he's a virgin (since he's so plain, no way he could have had sex before her). She then tries to get him to have sex with her. Hilarity ensues.

B Gata H Kei is a damn funny manga. It's also damn perverted, I mean - the main character is the biggest pervert you'll ever read about. The humour comes from the fact that Yamada wants to be a slut, and tries to have sex whenever she can - but the majority of the time, she fails and hilarious scenes unfold. Aside from the humour, there is slow progression between Yamada and Kosuda, but it's very cute to read about.

In fact, pacing is the main flaw of this manga. At one point
Spoiler (highlight to view)
they finally manage to kiss each other
, but then nothing happens for 8 months,
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it's stated it has been 8 months since their first kiss by Kosuda himself, when he finally kisses her a second time.
The weird time frames make it look really unrealistic and you often ask yourself; then what the hell did they do in all that time? Ignore each other?

I'd have to point out that the anime version of this manga fixes this pacing flaw, and makes everything flow together quite nicely. If you're done with the manga, give the anime a try, it's really great!

Anyways, B Gata H Kei may sound like Love Hina, but instead has a female main character - but they're not alike. Yamada is perverted, and she wishes she had a harem of boys - but this never ever happens. Unlike Love Hina, where the main character is a plain boy, who happens to stumble into perverted things and get an accidental harem. The humour comes from the fact that Yamada wishes to be like that, but will never achieve it. Instead of stumbling into perverted things, she seeks out to do this on purpose!

For a manga that is so perverted, I find it very 'moderate' on an ecchi level. If anyone has ever read The Hating Girl, a manga that is somewhat similar to this one, let me tell you that The Hating Girl is more ecchi than B Gata H Kei. Sure you'll see plenty of 'masturbation' scenes, some boob grabbing scenes, some erection scenes - but it's presented in such a way that it's not really that ecchi. Then again, I've only read up to chapter 175, who knows what will happen in later chapters.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Now that the newer chapters are up, the ecchi level has transcended into full glory nakedness - except for showing the penis. Showing a triangle for a vagina doesn't seem to be illegal or something. Yamada and Kosuda are trying to have sex, and you get a lot of naked shots of Yamada, but it shouldn't come as a surprise to those who have read that far. It's less porn, and more 'these teens are trying to figure out how to have sex and deal with the problems that can occur during it'.

Anyways, I love this manga personally. It's devoid of drama (which I avoid like the plague), has character development, perverted people, and excellent comedy. Not only that, but it's extremely cute to read the relationship between Yamada and Kosuda. I've reread the manga several times, just because it's so much fun.

However, B Gata H Kei is an acquired taste. If you consider yourself a prude, skip this manga. If you think masturbation is icky, skip this manga. If you have a problem with Yamada's younger sister implied to have sex with several dozen of guys, skip this manga. If you do not like to see sex so carefree and thrown around in your face, skip this manga. If you're a plot loving manga whore, skip this manga.

If you're not all of those things, enjoy reading B Gata H Kei!

Its a fresh story because is the ecchi part on the girls side, never read anything like this before, made me laugh a lot and made want more and more, the best part is that they problems related to the first time is pretty similar to real life.

Hope there are more stories like this with a bit more of straight forwardness of the characters instead of the nagging around a hundred volumes...... hope you enjoy this manga as much as I did

a must read for comedy ecchi fans. it is simple yet highly enjoyable, erotic but naive, brazen yet innocent, roll up in laughter. the main character is the most like-able protagonist i had ever read due to her honesty of the flesh. you wont regret reading on her adventure to get rid of her cherry!

The fact that Yamada is doomed to failure due to her repressed shyness tends to always be funny in one way or another.

If there was any down sides to it though, I'd say that it's the fact that:

Well to be honest I first enjoyed this manga because of the sheer hilarity of it. Plus the fact that the lead girl is completely perverted. However, as I reached the end it became very cute and dare I say, even touching. 300 chapters and I still wanted more! However, it never loses its comedic roots. I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind nudity or some sexual scenes.

She thinks she wants a hundred notches on her bedpost, but knows nothing about sex. And is actually kinda shy. He has no idea what he wants and no clue, but hey, he's plain average and there's a chick talking to him, whoa, duuuude. Cue in heart and other places throbbing.

...from there starts love. And comedy. So much comedy.

Gateway manga to world of sexual frustrations   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

Ha ha ha this manga humorously indulged in the one thing that most young adults share--Sexual frustration, or the inability to find oneself a perfect girl/boyfriend to do it with. I love how lightly this manga took everything because the humor made the story easier to digest, especially for someone not suited for this manga age-wise. wink

I'm not normally a fan of ecchi, but this definitely flied over my expectations. I recommend this to all who don't mind the lustful backdrop (after all, it's covered by jokes and light romance).

This manga is a very hilarious and entertaining!

Maybe we can call it a tsundere pervert girl loving a plain, kind and gentle guy. The good point is the 4 koma format itself: comedy is short and it means every page will have something to laugh about; the story will be be take a very short interval; and time will move very fast because 1 volume contain more than 20 chapters, wow

the artwork is also acceptable, quite good for me, its seems the mangaka able to draw better but considering the story and character, she made it simple. The ecchi are not really explicit & vulgar, most of them described by words, so I guess it almost fine for everyone smile

what I don't really like is sometimes the "ecchi" comedy became blunt, out of place and easy to guess. But meh' that's okay

Good Manga Will miss it

The is a good manga. The plot is different which is a plus for me. Secondly the comedy was funny but gradually the comedy starts to get repetitive. Even though the comedy started to get repetitive, I still loved this manga and followed the scanlation group to see when it comes out.

Okay so the description of the manga seems like it would be a hentai manga, but its not. Its more of a innocent sex comedy kind of manga.

I kind of didn't like the ending because it was a typical happy good ending where

it ends with them graduating because I wanted more.

Overall I give this manga a 8.5/10 because I will miss this manga. Btw thanks for the scanlation groups for giving me and others the opportunity to read this manga.

A funny light reading..

Well, basically this is an ecchi gag manga. It's pretty funny for light reading. Story wise, it's pretty weird, yet funny. And I can say that the characters are pretty unique. Well perhaps it's because this is the first time I pay attention to a 4-koma, but well, overall this is a pretty funny light reading.
