I gonna try to make this review a short and a spoiler free one.


The story goes kinda like this......The main two protagonists(Ojiro Kazuma and Kaji Fumino) share the relation of being a student-teacher at school but in reality they are married to each other and since according to the rules the teacher will lose his job if this is found out so they have to keep this relationship a secret from others.

This story is about the developing relationship between a teacher and his student. At home they are married. While at school they are student and teacher. The teacher is male and much older who used to be a delinquent when he was younger. The student is female and thinks she's a sort of Joan of Arc since she has a sense of righteous justice and as such she comes across violent since she beats people up if they do wrong. The lead girl has a younger brohter and they are both orphans who ran away from a troubled home read more

Overall, so far I believe it has great potential to develop into a great manga. its a kind of 'forbidden student-teacher relationship', and at first it seemed weird how the two characters got into that situation (in my own opinion).

I like this manga (so far) because it has just the right amount of drama, heaps of comedy and also really good fluffy moments. The Tanaka-sensei gradually shows us bits and pieces of each character and makes it a fun read by adding very cute and annoyingly stupid/cute moments (if in real-life) - which can really make you laugh.

During the serious/dramatic moments, the artwork (which is read more

This was a very hard manga for me to review. I loved how it started, and thought that nothing would alter that. Then the second volume kind of lost me. I was disappointed! I even considered stopping reading. But I had the next volume already, so thought that I would keep on keeping on. And I am glad I did. I was won back in volumes 3-4.

The story itself has been told many times. Teacher and student are married, and hide it from the general population. But in Faster than a Kiss, the story has a freshness, and it is so sweet! In order read more

both are about love between teacher and student. Drawing is very nice for eye in FTaK and 7J-mR because of author - Meca Tanaka.
I think that everyone who likes tabu-pairings should read it.
Kazuma from Faster than a kiss really reminds me of Usui from KWMS. They are really similar, not only their appearance but also how they like to tease the girl they like =) The dynamics of both couples is really funny because of all the teasing. Also, there are some similarities between Fumino and Misaki: the guys in their school are afraid of getting beaten by them =)
faster than a kiss and chocolate are similar because of a student x teacher relationship. both was a romantic comedy love story!:D and very enjoyable to read!
In both mangas, there is an older guy that protects and an high school girl that is protected, making the relationship between them really sweet. Also, both Kurosaki and Kazuma like to tease the girls so it is really funny to see the way the girls react. Another similarity between both male characters is that they are always trying to control their feelings and impulses because of the age gap...(In Kurosaki's case, he also doesn't want to be called a lollicon XD)
they have the simlia rplot where the girl falls in love with the young little bit odd teacher
i think that both mangas share the same feelings, both are cute, romantic, funny and involves a girl who have to be strong, little children and an improvised family.
