His late father always said that a useless man should strive to be useful, so to that end, third-year high school student Nariyuki Yuiga dedicated himself to becoming a high-achieving student in his school, despite his history of poor grades. In order to give his destitute family a better life, his ultimate goal is to obtain the special VIP nomination, a prestigious scholarship covering all future university tuition fees. Although Nariyuki could feasibly be a shoe-in for the nomination, he is constantly overshadowed by classmates Rizu Ogata and Fumino Furuhashi in mathematics and literature, respectively.

To his delight, Nariyuki receives the nomination, but there's a catch: he has to tutor his two star classmates, who are each hopelessly mediocre at the other's subject of expertise! To make matters worse, the subjects they are horrible at are the same subjects they want to pursue for their future. As the time to submit university applications draws nearer, Nariyuki must find an effective tutoring method for the girls before it's too late.

I am not the type of person who writes reviews like this but I could not help to make one to give justice to this manga. This is not like Love Hina or any other harem manga out there. The author takes into careful consideration the characters' development. Despite some people seeing some flaws of this manga, probably due to mediocrity, I truly appreciate that the manga made wonderful endings that truly give justice to each main girls. Yes. There are multiple routes and this what made this outshine other harem manga for that matter. It could be seem dull at first, but eventually it ...

There are few who point out how Bokuben is destined to be part of a list of historical works, not because of its narrative quality or even because of innovation, but because it reminds us of an old technique but ignored for thematic reasons, rather than here they were not considered, In other words, the opportunity was given and they took advantage of it, for their fortune and ours.

Because it is undeniable, Bokuben will be remembered for his end, or better, endings. Taishi's choice of "decide the ending you want" could seem audacious at first (there were few who called him a coward), plus the ...

i have read/been reading almost 15 mangas (not to mention around the same no. of anime) with romance as a major element and this ending is the worst one i've ever read/watched.

this is a sad way to end a good-ish manga. the ending could have elevated the manga from good-ish to really good.

this ending is a disaster. please, mangakas, don't do an ending as foolish as this one.

i'm really irritated. the author could have gone anyway and i'd have loved it 100x more than this lazy ending.

quintessential quintuplets is what this manga tried to copy and do differently but ended up falling ...
