So I happened to come across this manga while looking in the recommendations of the manga "Arisa" if you are a fan of that manga or "Oresama Teacher" and "Boys before Flowers" than you will definitely like this manga! This review is made after only 10 chapters of the manga.

Story (7 out of 10)- The story is very creative with having Yakuza movies inspire the characters to stop the bullying in the school. The story is very "Boys Before Flowers" -esque because of the feel of having two students going against this higher power in the school. Though there are some cliche scenes the story read more

This is my first review so here goes:

I stumbled upon this manga a while ago when searching for latest updates, and when I read the synopsis, it sparked interest but I had no expectations. However, after reading the first few chapters I realised how strong the plot was (even though it wasn't completely original) and how fresh it seemed.
Story 8/10
As previously mentioned, it was a strong, gripping plot and it will hook you in once it introduces the problem. A case of school bullying, in which a duo of 'invisible' youths are willing to stand up against. Touches of romance, heaps of drama and read more

overall it's a 10/10 for me, i thoroughly enjoyed it when i was reading it. It's so frickin cute, and plus it's not cliche like the usual popular-boy-falls-for-unpopular-girl.
The art work, to me, is amazing. Even the extras looks cute, it's like this person is unable to draw ugly looking or bad looking people.
Only thing is, the whole story line itself is a little overused, with the (SPOILERS ALERT...maybe) elite school bullying and the school's principal's son is a prick with the fighting and what not, it's a bit too predictable. But, like I said, it's very VERY cute, and it might be something nice if read more

Pika Ichi is about two students Torau and Hanako who see the corruption in a school they love and their high sense of honor and justice makes them band together to help reform the school.

Story: 8
This story has some cliches like the elite school with arrogant elitist students is hardly a road untraveled, but the way it is portrayed is done in a non conventional way in that even though it's a shoujo manga it has a slightly shonen edge that really sets it apart from other series. You get all the perks of shoujo (Romance, school life, comedy, etc.) with the added edge of read more

They both go to wacko schools which have some sort of social weirdness going on. The main characters are strong and try to abolish the injustice.

In both manga, the main characters are trying to make the school a better place. In Oresama Teacher they are trying to control the delinquents so more kids will go to the school and in Pika Ichi the main characters are trying to rid the school of bullying. Both main females don't cry easily and both have fights.

Both about bullying in high school however Pika Ichi involves comedy and some romance. Strong characters. Great art work 
reportRecommended by potato382
The main characters of The Wild Ones are kind of like the ones in Pika Ichi, they're all about justice and they're adorableee<3 
reportRecommended by CheekyPanda
Both manga's have the type of two faces (double personallties) people in hopes of stopping bullying, love, and make the weeker person feel or act stronger.  
reportRecommended by huruki
these are similar because they both involve the main character being a target of the whole school - students in both stories do this because they are following a tradition. they both involve the 'boss' of the school to confront the main character and the protagonist tries to understand them. happy reading :)
