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

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

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

Manga: Penguin Brothers
An elite school, twisted into a nightmare for the students, by the students. A group decides to put an end to the madness, and restore peace. There is romance but the school, it's students, and the mob mentality are the main focuses.

Manga: Arisa
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.

Manga: Oresama Teacher
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.
