Daisuke is a 23 year-old new schoolteacher. He ends up being put in charge of a 3rd grade elementary school class since the previous teacher quit, and in that class there's a girl who's quite a troublemaker--Rin Kokonoe. You could call her a masegaki (used to describe a kid that acts more like an adult in some ways), and she's also part tsundere (though more dere than tsun).

great lolicon

this manga is a good manga for people just starting in loli genre. i had always read manga with sexualised young girls (pokemon, negima, etc) and this manga pave a way for the more concentrated and serious loli stories. though the ecchiness can be somewhat disconcerting, the real story line and the likable characters drawn me to continue and read on. a worthwhile read.

i don't really like the ending, i think it's best to not read the last 2 chapters. however it still don't detract from my enjoyment, they are adults after all.

It's been ages since I read this, because when I had it got canceled but now that I see it is back I do want to pick up where I left off-with
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Rin basically saying goodbuy to sensei to be with Reiji because he needed her more.
I don't remember what chapter that was, but I've read at least some 30+.

That said, I can say the manga is ok, it does have heart at times, but there are some heavy loli aspects which I'm not saying anything about just that there are. Someone mentioned the girls were 12..I believe they are actually 8 or 9. I knew this was loli going in..I was curious, never reading it before. The story sounded cute, and it is at times, however I think Rin (and usually Kuro at times) take things too far with teasing Sensei. They could really get him fired because people would believe them if they said he was doing something to them since they are cute little girls. That to me is not funny. I think Rin needs much more disaplin and needs to understand that lying about someone is NOT ok because it can really ruin someone's life. Yes, this is fiction but that does not mean it has to be so outlandish.

I also do not like how they made Reji a bad guy. It's bad enough he was in a relationship with his cousin, now he's preying on her little girl? What I like about Sensei is that he is just a normal guy, he is not into Rin that way. I liked Reiji too until they twisted his mind. As blueseeker said though, he's pretty much projecting his feelings for Rin's mother onto Rin.

On a positive note though-as I said this manga has heart at times. There is more to it then the loli fanservice you get assaulted with in the first few books. Really, they could have taken alot of that out and just focused on the main points-unrequeted feelings, a little sexual inuunedo (because all children are curious), growing up to fast (Rin feeling like she has to take care of Reiji). It would have still been a good read.

Well, now that I heard it's back, I plan on finishing it to see what all happens and how far they go with it-with all the factors. And my favorite character is Kuro chan!

komodo no jinkan is a serie that was born in the age of lolicon wave, that was the most extreme taboo that time, well the history is well make and well planned, a 12 years old girl that fall in love with her teacher that is 10 ten years older. But she has a tragic past even so small and her tutor is mentally insane still the teacher try to save both of them, making this harder when he fall for her. Isnt a read for teenagers becuase is heavy content with taboos and tragedies.

A Staple in Loli-Manga

If anything, don't judge this series or drop it because of the "Lolicon" or "age gap" tags. This series first starts out somewhat humorous in nature, showing the advances of a young elementary school student (Rin) towards her teacher, who is mortified by her actions. But that path quickly changes direction as the series starts to focus on the hardships and suffering of Rin herself, as well as what led her personality to become so terribly messed up.

This story is surprisingly very deep in many aspects. It questions the ethics we hold in society constantly by bringing up the actions we normally consider taboos into question, such as incest and loli.

It stresses on the fact that not everything in life has "good" or "bad" stapled on top of it and that sometimes good people will break the rules because of their situations or follow their heart into the insurmountable wall known as the law.

This manga shows several aspects that are both the best and worst of human nature. But above all, it lets one feel the raw emotions of the characters as they are driven into despair, hope, happiness, and sadness.

Simply put, this is the touching story of a man born too early and a girl born too late.

Kodomo no Jikan is a Flawed Loli Classic

I do not particularly find lolicon to be to my liking- I find it kinda icky, actually (understatement?)
Kodomo no Jikan is pretty exploitative for the first few volumes. It has copious amounts of fanservice of essentially prepubescent girls. It's pretty messed up. It could definitely do without a lot of the panty shots and scenes of masturbation...><

But then some more serious issues come into play, and the most recent volumes focus more on that than just mindless loli fanservice.

I will say the characters are interesting and very memorable- each one is different, has their own likes, dislikes, etc. I even remember most of the side characters' names.

If you're utterly repulsed by lolicon, you'll probably want to keep away from this one. I am icked out by it, but I can just overlook it in the interest of...well, it's pretty funny. You need to approach this series with an open mind, and if you don't like the loli bits, try to ignore them, because there is more to this story than the cheesecake.

And to topboy- being a girl I can tell you for a fact that about half of the things on your list do happen in real life >>;

Took my like 3 tries to get past the loli and really get into this series, been trying since 2006. As long as you can get past that part, the story is written in a way that Rin (the little girl) acts and thinks at least 4-5 years older than her age. She does have her soft moments as a child, to keep her character possible in reality. Honestly though, this is written in a pure fiction type of way that I don't see why anyone should be even offended.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
If an 11 year old sucking on a 23 year old's d*** is not loli, I don't know what is.

Nevertheless, its worth the read as it has pretty good amount of both serious and not serious to complement each other.

But please, this series deserves the Lolicon genre tag, keep it there.

Yes, even though it's not hentai.
If you object to lolicon in general then you probably won't be impressed with this as there are quite frequent fanservice. But if you are, man, you need to read this.
Whenever you thought "here we go, he's gonna do it!", he never does... which leave you somewhat disappointed. But in the end it actually makes you respect the character (Aoki-sensei).
Cried buckets when reading it but also laughed a lot.

I started reading this on a complete whim I hardly even knew what it was I sort of just expected another random perverted company I soon found myself to be very wrong I was surprised at how well-thought-out and deep each character was every character having his/her own personality characteristics and flaws this series starts out very funny but around half way through I found myself genuinely disturbed not to say the author still didn't find some way to work in the hilarity though it's true that this series should only be read by adults and about the whole moral issue just, remember it's not real it's only a book

What's wrong with you guys!

Look, I want to look at this stuff with my gf and it's not that wierd, I mean a child who had crush on her teacher is normal. There's nothing wrong with that. And don't view children as naturally sexual.

Well, this is just a manga and don't take it to heart if you know what I mean.
