From KodanClub:
Akira Shindo has been transferred to Fuga High School where she is almost raped by a group of young thugs. She meets Mahiru Suruga, a mysterious but beautiful girl with both arms in bandages. Mahiru is aloof and cold. Her motto is, "I will neither rely on others nor have anything to do with others." The two girls get caught up in a series of incidents at school and Mahiru, a strong fighter, always manages to sort them out. Mahiru starts to soften up, as she becomes friends with Akira, who loves to stick her nose into other people's business.

Mahiru's school life is turned upside-down as many people approach her. Kaede is a high school student training as a swordmaster under a senile old man, who turns out to be a real pervert and a fake. Mahiru's father also comes into the story and things get chaotic.

One day, Satoru Tsunami, a high school student and an aspiring reporter starts following Mahiru. He deeply respects Mahiru and considers her the strongest high school student and a rebel against adults. Why is Mahiru so strong? Satoru tries to find out her secret. Why has Mahiru shut herself out? What is going on inside Mahiru's mind?

Fried your brain out and need mental cotton candy! This series is for you. If you want more mindless than this, turn on the TV. That said, it is fluffy fun for those moments when you need it.
As far as the echi-ness of it, every set of set of boobs is larger than the shirt of the person wearing it. The women are loaded enough that their bras are serious features of engineering.

Entertaining but Disappointing

This manga has some really good art and a lot of potential. Unfortunately, it couldn't decide if it wanted to be a mature story with a mysterious heroine or a bit of a typical high school guardian story with a sprinkling of HSDK. Its just not consistent with its tone and direction. The manga becomes episodic and the stories at times mediocre. Again its disappointing because the manga had a good start and the main character is both interesting and drawn very nicely.

The ending seems to come too soon, because it had potential to go further and be decent. It was entertaining at times and for its art and other strong points it gets about a 7.8

I read all of it just now. And my one conclusion to Peridot is. Huh... That's it? While I wasn't expecting that much really, it's just that it starts out with rather dark theme, and then turns into something like your average high-school comedy.

So I guess i'm kinda disappointed in the direction this manga took, and the end is damned boring and inconclusive, in my opinion at least.

Kinda episodic story wise and a bit disappointing as I said, the art is great though and all the girls are damned nice. Even is they all have perfect bodies and huge boobs with that.

I loved it would recommend it. It has great action plenty of skin and fun to read. Not to deep but has a nice plot for a martial art theme. I love the main charters personal,Not wanting to get involved but steel does and ends up with friends. Just a nice light good read. It's worth the look.

I originally came across this while looking for more of Kobayahi's work. I first became aware of him with his work on Hiyoko Brand, and wanted to see what else he'd put out. After reading the synopsis of it I really didn't have any expectations that it was going to be anything great, but I still found that I enjoyed it more than I anticipated.

The artwork, as seems to be the case for this mangaka, was fantastic. While not quite as good as Hiyoko Brand (it is an earlier work after all), Kobayashi still draws some of the best looking female characters out there. If you're a fan of ecchi and fan service, you won't be disappointed here.

What surprised me was how much I liked the characters though. Not so much the main character, as I found Mahiru rather one-dimensional, but most of the secondary characters around here were really quite interesting. If this series had continued beyond the six volumes it did, I would have really liked to have seen more focus placed on them.

There wasn't really much of a plot, and most of the different story arcs can be read independently of one another, but it still worked well enough for me that I could forgive it for this. I knew this going into it however, so I didn't have any expectations of anything more and thus wasn't disappointed.

As I said then, overall I enjoyed the series. Sometimes it's nice just to check my brain at the door and enjoy a story with great artwork and fun characters. For that, Peridot more than fits the bill.

Disappointing, but Still Mostly Enjoyable

I'm not going to lie, I started Peridot solely because of the yuri tag. I went into it expecting something to develop between Akira and Mahiru.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
and of course nothing does; the only yuri in the series comes from an obsessive lesbian girl who's around for only one story arc

Still, regardless of my reasons for starting the manga, it wasn't terrible. Mahiru is a very beautiful, interesting character. The art is quite nice. Some of the plot lines aren't horrible even if you couldn't call them deep exactly. All the girls are sexy and the fact their frequently disrobed isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Overall, even if it wasn't quite what I was hoping for, I still had fun reading.

I got this one initially because I love the art of the same author's "Okusama wa Joshi Kousei" and kept reading because of the art. The plot pretty much sucks, and there's way too much rape.
