Synopsis

A young man finds and returns a lost wallet and cell phone to a beautiful young lady, thus begins the destined relationship between two strangers. Sound typical? Well then, how about making the young lady the young man’s future homeroom teacher, and give them both a twisted sense of right and wrong. And just for kicks, let’s have the young man help himself to a self proclaimed reward from the lost wallet before returning it… but of course, this scenario wouldn’t be complete unless the young lady was very unforgiving when it came to teaching one of her students a lesson on morals.

Unbalance x Unbalance (UxU) is a Harem, Ecchi, Romance manhwa dealing with what will become some interesting love affairs. It's remarkable how this manhwa portrays this sort of forbidden romance, however for a title that had so much potential, I'm not too please with how it all turned out.

Enter Jin-Ho Myung, a seemingly regular guy, coasting through his High School life. That is until a new homeroom teacher, Hae-Young Nah enters the picture. It is by some amusing coincidences that the two have several run-ins with each other and it were these unusual circumstances that sparked an interest between the two. From there the story read more

This is my first Manwha/Manga review so please be patient and bear with me. Onwards we go!

Now, have you ever thought to yourself what it would be like to have feelings for a teacher, and on why it has such a controversy? Or why it isn't accepted in our society? 'What's' so wrong with such a relationship? Well, some people might say age, so lets say this. A boy is 7 years younger than the woman he loves, (19 - 26) his friends start to find out what they're relationship is like, and all of a sudden seem to think that such a relationship is read more

This series is definitely one that gets better as one reads on. It started out rather weak, having nothing to distinguish itself besides barely above average art from the usual rabble of ecchi fanservice manga/manhwa.

Certainly, the first half of this series is ... well, not very good. The writer insisted on using cheap and unrealistic manga/anime gimmicks to bring the two protagonists in embarrassing situations and to bring them closer, it really felt like a half-assed effort that couldn't possibly form a believable plot.
Just when I thought that Unbalancex2 was destined to be nothing more than thinly-veiled ecchi fanservice, it actually started to deviate read more

one of the reasons that i began reading his manhwa would definitely the gorgeous art. the other would be the complications between forbidden romance.

to lose oneself over love means to give up ones' dignity in the eyes of the many. i guess that would be the lesson that unbalance x unbalance is trying to tell the reader. the dilemma comes in the form that a student, jin ho, is in love with his teacher, hae young.

will love prevail over morals or the thoughts of other people? for a teacher that lives on morals and abides by the rule, hae young is troubled by read more

This is a recommendation with a difference: rather than recommending both, I'm recommending UxU to those who read or watched Please Teacher and were left unimpressed by how fake the characters acted. Where as PT is aimed squarely at those who fantasize over big-breasted doormats, UxU is a far more realistic take on romance between a student and his teacher. A must read for those who were left wanting more from PT.

----------

What sells UxU to most people is the lead. Usually in these type of stories the male lead defines pathetic; having no backbone, no strength, and still somehow getting a gang of hotties after him. But UxU's lead differs from the norm. He'll argue with aggression if anyone disagrees with him, and he has a nasty side to him where he totally loses it; even hitting females. He also wants to be a movie director, and one of his early encounters with the teacher he loves involves an argument over him watching what she considers to be porn at school--him questioning whether she's inexperienced and getting slapped to death as a result.

What's so great about him is that, as a reader, I could believe he'd have girls interested in him. Strong, protective, loyal, good looking--he has a lot of qualities. And, of course, because of his horrible temper, he also has a bad boy thing going for him. There's even the typical haremish bit where a slutty character throws herself at the lead to make him blush... and he responded by turning the tables on her; pushing her down, having a feel, and leading her to believe he was going to make a move on her.

As for the teacher the lead lusts after, she's not an alien posing as a teacher; determined to marry the king of all losers--that much is certain. It's hard to believe that a 26/7-year-old hottie could be a virgin who hasn't even had a boyfriend, but her total mistrust of males following her father abandoning her as a child just about explains her past actions, and why she's so resistant to trusting the opposite sex. A big part of the story is her fighting a mental battle between her duties as a teacher and her feelings for the lead, and she's far from an easy lay--not giving into the lead's persistent advances; even going as far as to challenge him to win her over within a short period of time or risk losing her completely.

There's a fair bit of genre confusion that makes the series more interesting, also. It starts out more as a rom-com as the main two get to know each other in comical circumstances - the two ending up believing they had a night of passion whilst drunk - but it's definitely more of a... uhhhh, 'rom-dra'; drama taking over almost completely later on. And, just to fill the Korean comic book violence quota, around halfway through there's a totally random delinquent arc where the lead gets it on with some nasty guys and girls from his school; showing his true, violent colours for the first time.
It took me by complete surprise just how similar the two are, when I read B Reaction.

To begin with, both of the hot-headed, aggressive teenage male leads find themselves at war with hot-as-hell teachers in their 20s. Misunderstandings result in the two getting thought of as perverts, and all-out verbal (UxU) and physical (B) warfare results.

As the stories progress, the relationships quickly take romantic turns after the misunderstandings are cleared up and the pairings find themselves in increasingly compromising positions. Hate turns to love, etc etc...

One of the things that links the teachers - 2D attractiveness aside - is how they're both *SOMEHOW* virgins and both *SOMEHOW* never dated. UxU had more background info on this but, whichever way you spin it, in this world it wouldn't be possible for females with those looks to evade men for so long. (Just put logic aside for romanticism, Aion...)

B Reaction has stunning, drool-worthy art, and I'd say its first volume betters UxU with its combination of exciting action and amusing/panty-flashing romance. But then the art became inconsistent and it was canceled... which means it ended without ANY ending.
Both protagonist have kick ass atitude which is a happy go lucky and reckless person but in the end they get the attention and praise of everyone around them. They also tend to be so honest and pure.

Thinking on which manga had the most in common with this one i got alot of ideas. If you think about it the three main points about this manga are Fighting, Girls bodies, and your tsun type girl endding up with more friends thaan she wanted when the number of friends she wanted was none. Well as for the fighting Chocolat would fit the bill with street fights and fifferent styles facing off against each other, The girls are alot like the girls in Unbalance x unbalance, and as far as the tsun girl and her unwanted friends i gues we can name Iketeru Futari as pretty close but if i had to give just one it would be Unbalance x Unbalance if you take out the love intrest and make the lead character a girl and a mix of the teacher and student for a charracter. I know alot of people are going to nix this because UxU is a teacher student romance manga and this one has nothing to do with romance exept some yuriness but as far as the flow of the story and side plots along with equevolent ecchiness i bet if you liked this you would also like UxU
Both of these series have great artwork and deal with quality romance. Both also contain well developed suspense that will make you want to read through all the chapters in one sitting. UxU has a bit more ecchi, however both series are a bit more focused on the relationships than the fan service. If you liked either of these series I suggest you check out the other!
Romance between Female Teacher and male student....
