However, if you don't like ecchi jokes on girls then this manga is NOT for you.
If you do though, then this manga is highly recommended!
I guarantee that you'll laugh your ass off!

This ... thing, that manga is just so so epic. You can't find look alikes mangas any better than this one. Well of course, I'm hasty that's for sure, it could still turn mediocre later, but in my opinion I guess not. Its fan-service, its art, characters and storyline are so unique that I think keeping up like that, on those high-levels would certainly come to a brilliant succes. Akira-sensei is back with this manga so he'll surely make his possible to not let it down.
Anyway, for now at least (chapter 76 at this moment) I laughed my ass off, it's mind-blowingly awesome ! :D
Seriously, I don't regret it.
P.S : It's my first review so, I don't know if this helps, but I promise that until now, it's really worth it.

That may be a hasty thing to say considering that it is not completed yet. It could turn mediocre at one point in time, or the already high levels of fan-service could skyrocket to the point of no plot... It won't though.
Prison school is ecchi manga with a awesome plot on the side.
Our plot starts with Kiyoshi, a fun loving guy who wants to have a sweet girlfriend, and four other boys (with similar interests) going to an all-girls school that just recently became co-ed. During the opening ceremony they realize that they are the only boys in a school which has over a thousand female students.
This situation causes to boys to naturally form a strong bond with each other as men.
One night they decide to go peeping on the girls bath.
After a great deal of shenanigans, which includes Kiyoshi going directly into the bath, they are caught by the student council and are sentenced to stay in an old prison on school grounds for a month.
Stuck behind bars, and being subjected to all kinds of "'inhumane" treatment, these boys must stick together in order to withstand their hellish school life.
the story never disappoints with its twists and turns as you watch these boys grow into men.
And by men I mean perverted masochistic bastards who do nothing but piss off all the women around them.
The author is always throwing new, interesting, and downright hardcore things for the characters to do. There is never a dull moment.
Speaking of characters, There are five male protagonists:
Kiyoshi, the star of the series who never ceases to shine. He is nice guy who just wants to have a normal romance filled school life. Out of all the guys he is the most "normal."
Morokuzu, the glasses wearing otaku who is willing to anything to help out his friends. He is the backbone of the group. Even while being subjected to all forms of abuse he still keeps a cool head and takes the hits for his friends.
Shingo, the slick ladies man, who keeps his hair slicked back and resolve in his pocket. His only wish is freedom. He will do anything to be on the outside world.
Andou, the big man with a small face. He is quiet, unless he is talking of his darkest desires. Strong, silent, and enjoys a good beating. He is the brawn of the crew.
Jouji Nezo, The mysterious hooded man of few words. He is cursed with a disease that causes him to cough blood involuntarily. Because of the pain, he uses expletives in nearly every sentence, whether he needs them or not. He is caring, forgiving, intelligent, and can handle himself in a fight. He is the jack of all trades.
Jouji is my favorite character. He grows as a person much faster than all the other characters.
His lines while short, are hilarious.
His constant suffering is reflected in his personality, but he never dicks around like the rest of the crew.
His high pain tolerance, caused by years of grief, make him the most mentally strong character in the cast
I never fail to have a good time if Jouji is on the page.
The art is amazing.
The author draws quality art quickly. The scenery, designs, and expressions are some of the best on the market.
I am really enjoying Prison School.
The typical twenty page chapters never disappoint.
I cannot wait to see the direction which this story goes and the paths the characters take.
Best wishes for the future,

Another big plus of this manga is the artwork, the artist's talent is apparent from chapter 1. There is great attention to detail, and the characters are all very distinguishable from one another.
Speaking of characters, this is another area where this manga shines. The characters are all very unique with their various quirks. Although some of their habits and fetishes are somewhat strange, it almost makes them more realistic because let's be honest, human beings are very strange creatures.
The story would probably be the weakest part of this manga, there's a lot that needs to be explained. The idea is interesting, but you really have to just accept some of the things going on because its hard to make sense of it realistically.
I highly recommend this to any guy, although I suppose girls could enjoy it if they want a view into how teenage guys think. read more

Story: The story is incredibly silly, you have 5 boys attending an all girls school that recently turned co-ed. At this point you would expect the typical harem. That would be the case if this was a typical manga. What actually happens is that the boys get ostracized. After they commit a deed which wont be spoiled, there prison sentence in the school begins. The story isn't important. It is only there as a catalyst for absolutely hilarious events and circumstances. I mean hilarious.
Art: The art is fantastic. The ecchi is off the scale.
Characters: The characters dont fit any stereo types and are all incredibly funny.
In short this manga has a lot of ridiculous situations. What makes this manga stand out though is the tone. Everyone in this manga is completely serious. They are so serious in fact that its hilarious in itself. read more

How I Felt: For me the story seems a bit lackluster, I mean there are plenty of stories that involve a male character being in an all girls school but by putting 5 it made it slightly more interesting but the fact that the story is more or less about their imprisonment for the first 70-80 chapters because they peeped just made it a bit disappointing. It's still interesting and definitely portrays the story in a good way, but just to me it wasn't super intriguing. -The Artwork is definitely the best part about this manga because it has great detail and shows how much the creator put his/her heart into it. The only thing I disliked about it though is that I felt that some of the characters were underdone or just not cared for example Andou, he's fat but unrealistically fat with a giant head a small face and giant ear lobes, he felt the most underdone character just for comedy sake. Also Shingo was alright but can we seriously not get anymore characters that look like their from Grease with their hair slicked back with the one hair going down the middle? -As said before the manga goes deeply into how the character's interact with each other but for me I honestly didn't give a Rat Tooth about most of them. All of the other male character's didn't really matter to me no matter how hard I wanted to try and care for them, they just seemed uninteresting to me and were there to support Kiyoshi even though the story constantly tries to show their own side stories as well to make you care for them but it just didn't do the trick for me. -As for how interesting or joyful this manga is, it was very low for me personally. Mostly because the majority of the story took place in the prison and how badly the guys were being treated by a woman who kinda isn't a woman. The most interesting part of this entire story for me was the kiss encounter between Kiyoshi and Hana, that was interesting and definitely got me intrigued.
Major Grips: I'll just say it now but the unrealism is unbelievable in some cases. I know its a manga and its not supposed to be realistic but considering the art and how they grasp the concept I can't help but feel a bit annoyed. 1. The whole prison school thing is probably the most unrealistic thing I ever heard, I know some private schools make you sign a waiver saying you allow them to punish you but being put into a prison is Illegal. Unless its Juvy. Just saying. 2. Is there seriously not a single piece of fabric that confines Meiko's body? I know shes really there for sex appeal and all but she just shows it off too much to the point where I feel more annoyed than anything. Plus it bugs me that she gets all hot around the president... 3. The whole relationship thing between Kiyoshi and Chiyo is about as interesting as a rice cake. I can honestly say I don't feel it between them, it just feels stale because her character just doesn't go out there. Chiyo just seems average to me so the whole thing between the two is just boring. So the love factor in this manga really doesn't get me intrigued. If there is possibly more stuff between Kiyoshi and Hana than that would would definitely make things a lot more interesting. Just Saying.
Overall this is a good manga for those who want to get into it, just be warned that there isn't a whole lot of romance even though it says there is. But I'm sure a lot of people can get into it because of the humor and attention to detail. In fact there already are. But just note that this is just how I felt about the manga, but in general its good. General: 7-8/10 Personal: 5/10

Note : This manga is not for everybody , It has excessive fan service , dark humor and general "fendom" like feel . For all who do not understand fendom, it stands for a relationship between a guy and a girl where the girl overpowers the guy but this manga is not about romance , but it does have a bit of Romance in it .
Scores ( quick ) :
Story : 3/10
Art : 9/10
Character : 5/10
Enjoyment : 7/10
Overall : 6/10
+ Original Plot ( but it goes nowhere )
+ Excessive fan service ( if you like that stuff)
+ Good "Dark" comedy and mature jokes
+ Good Art
+ It's different from the general ecchi mangas
+ Serves good as only a "Stand alone comedy"
+ Too many losers
+ Plot seems to have no direction
+ Comedy is not for everyone ( Some people will be annoyed and some will not find it funny )
+ Comedy lacks sometimes
+ Excessive Fanservice ( can also be a bad thing for some )
+ Most times it just feels like a purely "Ecchi based" manga
The story is about a few wimpy boys getting caught while peeking at girls and being "Jailed in the School" because of it , off course we have a protagonist who was innocent but got caught in the whole mess . The plot seems quite interesting and good for a romance/ecchi at the beginning but then it shifts to become a completely "Ecchi/Comedy" manga with far less potential .
The starting plot is fine but no real carry through after that . But the jokes and situations are well executed in my opinion .And they also form part of the plot, so I think it's decent .
If you like fanservice , you will like this manga , I did enjoy the art a lot . The artist has good skills , I also like the Author's shading quality .
The character are mostly losers , they certainly do have their own separate personalities , but there isn't much out there , is it ? They are pretty much average character no matter how i look at them .
This manga is enjoyable if you like dark humor and ecchi . I myself like Ecchi a bit and I can tolerate all kinds of humor , So found it entertaining . Although sometimes I have felt myself irritated a lot that the characters need to man up and be strong but I realize that is not what this manga is . It's humor is quite different and it is based on this premise .
While this manga might not be everyone's cup of tea , it sure can be read once , some of the situations can be quite funny .

I didn't know where I was going into when I started Kangoku Gakuen, I was just hormone-driven by the few pictures I saw scattered through the web and I took my courage to finally go into a reverse google images search to find the source of all this lewdness and achieve what my mind ruined by the internet told me to.
Alas, what awaited me at the end of this journey wasn't the pleasure of seeing scantily clad high school girls having fun in daily school activities but a fantastic adventure into the depths of male friendship and honor through the hardships of female domination to find a way through the key of their hearts, all of this for one thing : True love.
What we see here is an odyssey. Through all the incredible comedy that is packed into this scatological work and left me no other choices but to burst into laughter countless times, there is also this unbreakable bond that lies between those five incredible boys, so different yet united against the enemy and ready to shatter the wall that lies between men and women.
And it made me a better man.
The amount of lewdness that is packed in this work of art will render you impervious to all urges whatsoever, becoming as strong-willed as a shaolin monk. It will satisfy all of your fetishes one by one without fail to the point that the only thing will be left in your mind is pure thoughts, as if you're floating in the middle of a river with only the sound of the water gently chirping your ears. It will allow you to use this pure moment to think about what you really need in your life and to take another look at what you really cherish on this earth.
At the end, you have to ask this to yourself : is a woman really the solution to everything ? Maybe we men should think and focus about our personal responsibilities first, just like these five boys did and managed to succeed in the high school life to become grown-up men that will be ready to face everything. This is what we really need and Kangoku Gakuen addresses this issue perfectly. read more
