Description
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.

Slightly above average but not what people make it out to be   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

I feel like this is a solid 6, slightly above average but not that amazing. In my opinion, the people writing reviews here are giving this way too much credit. The only reason it's slightly above average for me is because it's quite fresh at first. However, towards the middle and up to the end, I wouldn't give it more than 4/10, slightly below average, simply because it lacks too many things that would make it a good manga.

I found myself really immersed for a few chapters, it was fresh and interesting. Sakamoto is just way too amazing and perfect as a human being and it was mesmerizing to see his actions at first. However, that's all this manga has to offer, it gets old FAST since the author doesn't change anything up at all. Every chapter is essentially the same, it's all about sakamoto showing how he's a flawless human being, never getting screwed over no matter how impossible his actions seem to be. He amazes everyone and, while being nonchalant about it, gets the affection of everyone because he's just too godlike to keep on being disliked. However, the main character doesn't truly have any personality, all we can like him for is his actions... He's got a deadpan face and seemingly no real emotions, comparing him to a robot might be apt. We don't know who or what he is, we don't know what he feels and we certainly can't understand him, we don't know his goals and he has nothing to offer except doing cool stunts. A very shallow and dull character, no matter what the people here claims.

The characters aren't really interesting, I found the setting to be dull and boring as well. No one in this manga except for the main character are worthy of even being remembered. The scenarios aren't really funny, especially not after the first few chapters, and it all lacks "spirit" or whatever we should call it, it doesn't feel real even in an artificial sense, it just feels machine-like and monotone, I feel no "energy" that can make me immersed.

I feel like the perfect and flawless guy thing could be done way better than this, especially in, say, a fantasy scenario, like a fantasy world where there's more possibilities to make use of. Also, just showing how awesome he is without pause every damn chapter and moment isn't good writing. A good author needs build things up properly and immerse the readers in the story, to make the world around the main character matter, it can't just be the main character doing amazing feats all the time without any other redeeming features. That's boring and as I've said before, it gets old after a few chapters, readers would feel disconnected from the story itself.

So, maybe you're the kind of person who'd enjoy a soul-less story like this, who just loves to watch the main character do the impossible in rapid fire pacing without any plot or real story. Who doesn't mind that there's nothing fun to make up for the lack of plot/story like in a proper gag manga. Maybe you're just smitten with the main character because he's so awesome and cool-headed, be it in romantic attraction or just putting yourself in his perspective while reading. This could be the story for you, sadly it didn't offer me anything much and I just wanted to finish it quickly after reading a few chapters, luckily there's just 24 chapters in this manga and each page barely contains any content at all, being mainly images to show how awesome he is rather than dialogue, thus it can be read very fast, 2-3 hours should be enough to get through it.

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.
