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.
As a part of the JUMP START initiative, the first three chapters of Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai were published in English as We Never Learn in VIZ Media's digital Weekly Shonen Jump on the same day as the Japanese release. 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.
School + Harem = Cliche over dramatic Slice of life garbage that should be burned, is what I should say to this manga. But for some reason I find it enjoyable despite the fact it is a harem manga. The reason for this is the some-what related to the plot. I myself is striving for a scholarship in a university so maybe that is the reason I was enjoying this manga, Though the cliche romance and sometimes cringe worthy since can turn you off I can say this manga would be decent if the author can actually portray and emphasize the life of the characters
and how they struggle to enter the university they prefer since it is the main plot of the show and minimize the fan service and cliche romance and this manga would be a good manga.
This is a very interesting manga. Eventually it could get an anime, but not for awhile. I haven't read one quite like this before. The characters are likable and very relatable.
The concept of having two genius characters aim for their weakest subject for careers is brilliant. The only downside is that it lacks in action, however that can be covered up with intense sense; like how death note did with it's exposition.
I enjoy reading this manga a lot and im happy that Jump deiced to run this manga. Especially since Nisekoi ended awhile ago, they were lacking in the slice of life, school
if you haven't read it yet i highly recommend it. (the lols are pretty funny too)
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
that this manga has.
Speaking about characterization, those characters themselves are usual and some will find them cliche (tsundere, airhead, sports girl etc), but there's a balance within them. In this manga, we can't really say who will the male MC end up with. Even the popularity pool that took place before ch 61 was surprising. If the mangaka wrote this phenomenon as "the hardest race between heroines", then yeah, that describes the balance that i speak really well.
This manga consistently keeping each of its heroine in their own track, then developing it in a somehow relatable manner. One just being a friend to the MC, one fell in love with the MC without realizing it, one also fell in love but she aware of it, etc - all of them have their own track, and from this track the story make its progress. I guess this is the source of that balance. Then adds some light comedies and this manga become interesting piece of art.
