Sakamoto Desu ga?  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
First-year high-school student Sakamoto isn't just cool, he's the coolest! Almost immediately after starting school, he began attracting everyone's attention. The girls love him, and most of the boys resent him. There's even a boy in the class who works as a model, but who is constantly upstaged by Sakamoto! No matter what tricks the other boys try to play on him, Sakamoto always manages to foil them with ease and grace. Though Sakamoto may seem cool and aloof, he helps others when asked, such as in the case of the boy in his class who was being constantly bullied. No matter what difficulties Sakamoto encounters, he moves through his high-school life with confidence and class!

Note: Includes the one-shot Katahaba Hiroshi in first volume.

Nominated for the 7th annual Manga Taishou Award.

If you've been reading too many highschool based manga and happened to stumbled on this one, it would be a real surprise for you. But reading Sakamoto Desu ga? as your first highschool manga can be a bit jarring

this is one of the best comedic manga done in a realistic-y art. something akin to cromartie high school and angel densetsu, check them out if you like. im still reeling from the ending. very bittersweet and if you look at the clues you will cry buckets.

This manga is just too fabulous, I can't even--

Girls that read this will find beautiful, godly fan service along with God Sakamoto. Guys will learn to worship this wondrous man as well.

Sakamoto is love, sakamoto is life.

On a serious note, I really enjoyed how the mangaka made fun of dramatic shounen and shoujo scenes by adding sakamoto's fabulousness. The scenes I used to find cliche and cheesy were flipped for humor! I love this! My conclusion is this: You can be cool, but you can't be sakamoto cool.

The main character was perfection-he is the coolest of the coolest man of all men. He can literally do everything in the most perfect way possible. Wish this was an anime, too XD

to give further clarification to his statement about "the man" it is the fact that the existence of humanity finally has meaning and purpose if you consider that it was a lengthy process that eventually resulted in the culmination that is sakamoto. all of humanity was just the prerequisite for his being.... though probably wasnt actually needed, he just felt like letting humanity take pride in beginning his existence, if he so wished he would have just forced himself into being.... because he is sakamoto.

@Asana , you are probably right.

This manga pratagonist is over the top and the things he does is unrealistic. I thought this was seinen looks more like mix of josei, shoujo and shounen.

chp2 A bee is trying to sting him ? en garde!

There are plenty of other manga that have main characters that are seemingly perfect but few have his perfection as the focus of the manga and NONE of them do it as well as this. This manga has raised the bar more than a few notches for "perfect student" archetypes.

Sakamoto-san is brilliant. He can do everything.

You've never met a main character in a manga as perfect as him.

We should all be more like Sakamoto-san.

I feel ashamed giving this a ten. Because it is beyond the ability of a mere mortal like me to grade this comic on a 10 point scale.

Suffice it to say that Sakamoto san is not just a man among men, he is the man.
