Rehashing his previous exploits will keep Kaname busy, but it doesn't take long for the military mind of this soldier to bounce back with a bang—literally! He's locked, loaded, and back to his old self by first period, as bombs and bullets grace the halls of high school!

I've seen FMP Fumofu and that was a blast but disappointed with the short duration of the anime so when i heard of a manga that had more of the whacky and fun filled stories of socially challenged sosuke, i got right into it and it has meet all my expectations

prepare yourselves for more of sosuke's misunderstanding of the basic things in life and chidori's explosive reactions. The manga is not serious and doesnt have any real story line about mithril or any real fighting but it deals with the fun side of sosukes school life.

The character design is very cute which suits read more

This manga was hilarious. I found it right after finished Fumoffu!, which was thrilling, and in Christmas season.
After reading the first chapter, I was obsessed. I forcerd my family to rush me back to the mall a week later to buy the next two volumes, and then two more.
The series doesn't much have a point, but that's what makes it fun. It's silly and random, but has a sweet aura about it.
The one problem I found with it was the ending. It could have lasted a tad longer, and it felt rushed, but it was a sweet one.
This manga is perfect for comedy lovers, read more

User Recommendations

Both series feature characters who think in highly abnormal ways. In FMP! Overload!, Sousuke maintains a strict military mindset and often expresses it in ways that negatively affect those around him. In Choku!, Serika possesses a rather odd understanding of romantic relationships in which her "lover" Nao often suffers as a result. Expect to laugh a lot when reading these two series.
