Say what you want but the original manga won an award!
13 March 2015 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

This is my 7,5/10 mangaupdates review for the manga of which this is an adaptation. The anime is based on the first 40% of that series btw. This manga is directly comparable to the first few South Park seasons before that show turned into biting satire and a masterpiece. The author also changed after he moved on but not for the better as this remains his best work with "Wanitokagegisu" (8/10). I also turn to America and Europe for (sex) comedy's but this one succeeds as it puts black/toiled humor first and titillation second. The humor will probably turn off the general audiences and the quirky art won't help but the first half (basically the amine) can be true comedy gold. Some of the rape jokes overreach, the story goes on too long and does not quite finish (hehe) but that part should get a translation too as it is still interesting. I don't get why the author decide to set this at a middle school or why the (surprisingly functioning ) romances aren't resolved but readable ecchi is rare so i will crown it the as maybe not as the king but certainly as the jester in the land of the blind. "Genshiken" (8/10) mentions the manga btw. and the also reviewed "Love in Hell" and "The Penisman" by ISHIDA Sui should be your next destination.
