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).

What can I say? Strange, probably very wrong, but adorable, and interesting. I absolutely love it.

I have to agree with lah kouhei because this manga is a lolicon which means that there will be inuendos of the sort not only that but the real attacker is Rin and i honestly feel that is not that big of a deal. I think many people have different views depending on how they feel they were at that age, myself i was quite like Rin to any teacher i liked...although perhaps not as specific and not about intimacy but relationship wise.
On another note, i feel that Reiji is a bit confused because he sees her mother in her and thus is reflecting his unrequited feelings for her towards Rin. In fact from what i've read so far on volume 5 his feelings really give me the creeps. While sensei seems to be genuinely be captivated by her. Perhaps my views are derived from watching the anime before i read the manga.

Well actually this is the first Manga I've ever read... So I don't know how to comment it properly, but it gets my 10... It just captured me, I have the feeling that I can't stop reading it...

[edit by mod, may contain spoilers]

Now we have got to the point where the 3 girls have their "apples of their eye" rin=daisuke, kuro-chan=shiro-chan, usa-chan=reiji. Now that shiro-chan is taking kuro-chan's attention, I wonder how that will pan out. That was a big suprise for me. How will reiji take the fact that he is losing to aoki-sensei? Will he give up and take usa instead?

The story is so great right now, I understand there won't be a weekly release, but I'd sure like one. I need to find out what magazine this story is in.

I was watching the anime and it seems that there is a whole lot about aki, that I don't remember, I need to go back and read. Well I want to re-read the story anyways before there becomes too many chapters.

even when they look pedo related?! This manga surprised me greatly in the fact that i actually enjoyed reading most of the chapters. Sure there are some disturbing scenes but the plot is solid, the kids are cute (although somethings a bit wrong with the main character child) and it also makes u think psychologically about children's mental development. I would give it a solid 9 even though two of the three female children really think like an adolescent child or older not a, 3rd grader.

i think it's kinda cute! i mean, girls always think like that when there were young about their teacher (male)... only because that's a grown up and not your dad(ew if you think about it) and young girls dont usually think of guys their own age

This should go without saying but do not let the kids read this.

Great art, great story and lots of sexual innuendo with some more graphic stuff popping in once or twice so far. This truly is loli. If you can get past that, be wary that it carries a strong dramatic element to it at times

So far, it feels like it's been a roller coaster that hasn't hit its apex yet. It frightens me a bit to think if/when it all comes crashing down.

9.5/10 if u r into loli 8 if u r not, the loli annoys me as hell sometimes. However, I really like the development, it's very natural and delicate

Ok, i just want to clarify that i've been giving this manga the benefit of the doubt for the lolicon tendencies and thus far the manga has been pretty entertaining. The teacher, Aoki is a decent guy who cares and the story is pretty interesting so far. But the latest chapter(31) is freaking me out..... I'm starting to get 2nd thoughts.

I wouldn't say the manga is shocking. Look at "Midori No Hibi": a girl grows on a guy's hand. How crazy is that? Anyway, the manga is very cute, and I got a boner a couple of times, but that's OK I guess. Right? Right?!.. Hey, where're you going?
