Nitta Arata is a typical 21 year-old junior attending college of science and engineering at Toaru University. He is bright, he's in the engineering program after all, but he definitely is from a working class background. He has been working his way through college for the past 3 years without major incident, so being swept up in a warped experiment of an equally warped professor was the last thing he expected in the second half of his college days.

One day, Arata received a letter asking him to meet someone whose initials were "N.H." at a relatively secluded location on campus. The letter looked suspiciously like a "love letter", but Arata had his doubts. More likely it was a cruel practical joke perpetrated by one of his buddies, especially when the initials matched those belonging to "Nogi Hatsune", also know as "Miss Engineer", the reigning heartthrob of the engineering department. Why would somebody like her be interested in a nobody like himself? The short answer was that she would not be interested, but why take the chance of missing out? So there was Arata, in ultra-cynical mode, waiting at the appointed location when he was suddenly grabbed from behind! His last thoughts as world turned to black was that the gloved hands covering his mouth and nose reeked of ether...

Maybe I'm reading a completely different manga from the other reviewers, but B-Shock should not only be given the pass, but be actively avoided. I consider myself having a relatively high tolerance for schlock and stupid humor, but this series suffers from the unfortunate combination of being both stupid and humorless. The characters are shallow and unbelievable, the interactions are stiff and unrealistic, and the story is hard to care about. Essentially, the story is a vehicle for a young loser guy and supposedly gorgeous girl to be unwillingly tethered together by physical proximity until love presumably blooms. They have to get along with all the other zany characters in and around their school, while navigating life's troubles. The pinnicle of a one-trick pony, it's possible I might care more about the series as a whole if the art were better than merely subpar, but I doubt it. My advice? Stay away.

nice manga - good series.

art is good style, original and creative plot which is pretty good. character development is ok, and story pace and plot development is rather slow...not much really happens are for the actual plot in the first three volumes...

overall, a good series, not amazing, more than good enough to pass the time (while waiting for my weekly releases of bleach, naruto, air gear and school rumble...)
