This is my first review, so don't expect too much of it.
I wrote this review seeing there are no other reviews for this manga though it deserves one.
Yamada and the Seven Witches. Sounds like something from a fairy tale huh? Well, not really...
The story is about a delinquent high school student, Ryuu Yamada, who studies at a private school. One day, while going up the stairs, he slips and accidentally falls down. And to make it worse, he fell down over the class' top student, Urara Shiraishi, and they both ended up unconscious.
Waking up from his sleep, he finds himself in bed inside the school's infirmary...
ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT HE IS INSIDE SHIRAISHI'S BODY!
Unravelling the truths behind this phenomenon, they learned that they could switch bodies anytime with a kiss. Yamada and Shiraishi now lives their once boring life and starts to enjoy school more.
Brought to you by Miki Yoshikawa, assistant of the mangaka famous for his work "Fairy Tail", is a romantic-comedy, gender-bender that you might not want to miss.
Okay, enough of those commercial-like lines.
I have watched and read many romcom before...and I don't find anything special worth mentioning from this manga...except for the fact that it's one of those few gender-benders these days...otherwise, It has almost the same things you would find in a regular romcom. Though I would say IT IS worthy to be placed on the same boat as other famous titles like "To Love-Ru".
For the art of this manga, I would say it is the best. You could compare it to popular the titles, Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach.
As expected from the assistant of the creator of Fairy Tail, the characters in this manga resembles the style of those on Fairy Tail. Every character appearances also fits their roles perfectly.
So far, I really enjoyed this manga. Although there's still really not much of a plot.
I can't really say anything much yet because this manga only has 10 chapters. But I can tell that this manga has a lot of potential to it. It's good in all aspect but haven't really developed a deeper plot yet...
And it's really sad to say that almost no one knows about this manga yet. And because of that, it really doesn't get translated immediately after the release.
But if the plot is delivered right, I know for sure, that someday, this manga would also hit the ranking charts.
*P.S. This are all my opinions. I don't care if you object to anything I said. Make your own review. read more
Yamada and the Seven Witches is one of the funnier manga's I've come across. Sure, this is coming from a guy who laughs at the sight of his own toes, but thats unrelated. Back to the awesome review.
Enter Ryu, a rude lazy high school student with the reputation of a delinquent. While walking up the stairs he loses his balance and falls on top of the smartest girl in the school and they fall unconscious. Upon waking up, they soon discover that they've swapped bodies and by kissing they can switch back and forth! Bound by this strange secret, they start a club
The creator for this manga is a former assistant to the creator of Fairy Tail, and the art of this series is very similar of that hit shonen. The expressions on characters faces stand out most to me, selling even the most subtle jokes.
This would be the driving point of the manga. There have been hundreds of body-swap stories in the past, but none have Ryu as their main character, or the reserved beauty Shiraishii as the main heroine. Typically in Rom-Com's, the lead character is a passive wimp that inexplicably attracts dozens of females. Ryu shatters that stereotype, and resembles a badass Casanova who will occasionally make a charming remark.
I'd recommend this series to anyone who enjoys laughing. This is a laugh out loud comedy with a dash of romance, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Done by the same Mangaka and pretty much identical in art and other things, but is a completely different theme from Yankee but is enjoyable regardless.
They are both by the same author first of all. They include cameo's of characters that were Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. You get the same feel from both series; comedy and that slice-of-life. They are both also really enjoyable. Thank you.
from the same author. school, delinquent is present, even Yankee-kun's characters appear
Both Yamada-kun and Yankee-kun has very similar artwork in terms of its settings and character design because of the author. Additionally, they both take place in a school life environment.
The main male protagonist from both series are hotheaded and often rushes into situations without thinking. However, they do get along well with their classmates and cares about his friends. At the same time, they get into conflicts with other students throughout the series with various degrees of drama.
There is romance present in both series as well. However,one noticeable factor present in Yamada-kun is the addition of supernatural elements added in.
-The main characters give out the same aura and both their characters are very similar
-Both revolve high school and begin with a chance encounter with a girl
-Both are very funny
-both are awesome :P
Same creator , Same stuff.
Yankee-kun is more shounen type and has delinquents in setting while Yamada-kun has supernatural elements and interesting plotline but I assure you that both have romance and in both manga MC guy starts off as loners.
Both are about a guy and a group of witches surrounding him. They are very comic, have a slight harem romance touch and even look as if they were a parody of each other at times. Witch Craft have action packed into the mix too.
Although the story line is different, this manga involves witches and harem (even though the female lead has the power here). The witches comes after the male lead; love gets involved.
Magic exists and in both series, the MC gets himself caught into circumstances that changes his life forever. The main female protagonist from both series are considered beauties with a cool personality. Yet they do manage to show emotions on occasions especially when they get involved with the MC. There are bits of mysteries going on relating to the various characters, or rather witches throughout their perspective stories. Secrets are unlocked and startling revelations are told. Both manga captures the essence of magic and illustrates their powers.
I feel like they are a bit like eachother in some ways and if you like one there is probably a chance that you will like the other one :)
