On the outskirts of Tokyo stands Hachimitsu Private Academy, a storied all-girls boarding school for elite young women full of potential and good breeding. But as the new school year rolls around, one tradition is going out the window: For the first time in the school's long history, boys are being allowed to enroll. But on the first day of school, only five boys make the cut. Kiyoshi Fujino, one of the lucky few, is thrilled by this discovery, his heart leaping with joy at the thought of being surrounded by all those girls, day in and day out. But little does he know of the shocking fate that awaits him.

This manga is extremely funny. Several times I have busted a gut laughing. The reason I find Kangoku Gakuen so good is because of the characters. The main guys are all unique. The story becomes rather serious dealing with things such as betrayal, and humiliation; sometimes this is funny but at other times it is sad. The comedy is over the top, it's just hilarious. Another good thing about this manga is that you can feel the emotions certain characters are feeling. These characters (at least to me) can be something people I can relate to; I have pooped my pants once (never in school). read more

This is one of the funniest thing i've ever seen, read or even experienced. Period.

First of all the art is stunning, it's actually what lead me to read this. It doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl, the manga is just visually appealing from beginning to end (of course if you happen to like women this is, well some sort of pervy heaven xD); every single detail, every single action, everything is perfect. Then the characters: oh the characters. There's no such thing as a dull character here, they all have their thing that makes them unique and great in their own way, read more

Don't listen to guys, who tell you this manga is only for those who like perverted stuff.

I really dislike hentai, and I avoid ecchi whenever possible. This manga stayed on my "plan to watch" list for a while, before I finally picked in up and finished 144 chapter in one day (actually, two days, because I finished long after midnight).

Is there a lot of ecchi in Kangoku Gakuen? Yes, unfortunately. BUT! Bigger half of it is made into a joke or something funny, and so it doesn't feel like straight fanservice.

The second half of ecchi is so overboard and unrealistic that I make a typical read more

First of all let me tell you English isn't my mother language so this review will probably suck.

The story focuses on a strict female high school where boys starts to be welcome and on the five boys who get in this high school: The typical well-intentioned protagonist Kiyoshi, who he gets into trouble because of misunderstandings, his childhood friend, Shingo, a Japanese history freak and the one who will figure out most of the plans (And also my favorite character) Gakuto, a masochist fat boy whose face is very small compared with his head, Andrei, and the most mysterious one, Jô, who is always covered read more

Manga: Onanie Master Kurosawa
Both manga have some very perverted humor. If you're easily offended it's your loss because they're both amazing manga! Each manga has an actual overall story and surprisingly some intense drama that will probably make you want to read as many chapters as you can in one go. In both manga the main characters also have partners in crime. The premise of each manga is definitely absurd but strangely it works and they're both some of the most entertaining manga I've read in quite a while. I haven't read a lot of manga but both titles felt very original to me so if you're looking for something new I  read more

Manga: Hantsu x Trash
Both of these serialisations feature a group of extremely perverted male characters and their interactions with a group of females.

Manga: Wagatsuma-san wa Ore no Yome
Most of the story features the insane interactions between a bunch of loser friends while the main protagonist tries to get into a relationship.

Manga: Nana to Kaoru
Much BDSM in both manga. Kangoku gakuen is farcical and has a realistic art style, albeit super ecchi. Compared to Nana, which is all ecchi/borderline hentai.

Manga: Oretama
Oretama and Prison School are known for their fan service but also plot elements especially on storybuilding. In both series, the male characters gets involved in many events that causes controversy with their peers. Oretama's themes also involve supernatural phenomenons that breaks the natural order of limitations. On the other hand, Prison School's themes crosses paths on the wrong side of the law. Recommended for fans of unorthodox humor.

Manga: Need a Girl
Its seem that both manga; is around guys trying to talk to female but are very poor at doing so but Kangoku Gakuen has more ecchi and Need a Girl is more of a slice of life and both are very funny but in different ways than one
