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.

After, the series was added to VIZ Media's Weekly Shonen Jump lineup. The same publisher has licensed the series for print release.

So far, I think this series is rather enjoyable, but I don't think it will last that long in the magazine. The plot is nothing interesting, and the story seems as though it will be yet another cliche Harem like To Love Ru or Nisekoi.

The artwork isn't much to talk about, since it really resembles a lot from the series Nisekoi. I don't know if this was intentional, since the mangaka may have been an assistant to the author of Nisekoi in the past.

Only time will truly tell how this series does in the future, since it isn't doing anything new.

This romance manga had a lot of potential. The first few volumes were very good and they created and interesting plot with very likable characters. Unfortunately, this manga does what many shounen romances do, forgo the story for the sake of prolonging their run.

The beginning of this manga is mainly there to pull you in (like how most mangas are), which it will do if you enjoy reading romance. I think i stayed hooked for the first 10-20 chapters because it was a genuinely good manga. Slowly though, it started doing what every other shounen romance does; stops focusing on the actual content and romance read more

"We Never Learn" is not a good romance story. It is neither good, nor a romance, nor a story.


Story: 0. This isn't a story, there is no story. There WAS a story but it lost its legs ages ago.

Art: 4. Same as everyone else's. Nothing special. Just like the Japanese masses like it.

Character: 4. What started off as promising devolved into tropes and cliches rather quickly.

Enjoyment: 2. There were some funny jokes that got to me every once in a while, but "some funny jokes" can't save this trash heap.

Overall: 3. The definition of bland. So scared of being different it erases everything that made read more

Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai is an enjoyable manga despite being very cliche in the world of romcom. There's an unwritten balance within the characters that shines in a fun way and that is unique.

For the start, to be honest, i feel the story is poorly written, without almost any significant progress starting from chapter 5-7 onwards. Add to that, harem and ecchi (yes, this manga has ecchi genre actually, rather a light one) are two genres that im not a fan of. Then how can i enjoy this manga?

The answer to that question is the characterization. In my opinion, characterization is the strongest point read more
