Eiji Yariba is a 29-year-old sales team coach working at a call center for Arcadia car insurance at the Hachijou branch in Tokyo. Although he sees himself as nothing more than a corporate slave, he is widely recognized as the call center's ace and admired by all his juniors. One weekend, free from his work, he bumps into a high school girl in a manga cafe. They find common ground as book lovers, especially since the 15-year-old Karen Minamisato aspires to be a writer. The underage girl soon develops a crush on Yariba, who is forced to turn her down.

Thinking that to be the last he would see of Karen, Yariba is in for a rude surprise when the CEO of Arcadia's Japanese subsidiary, Takayashi Takamishi, personally orders him to "court Karen Minamisato." As Karen's grandfather, Takamishi wants his grandchild to find happiness, and he has never seen her as lively as when she was with Yariba. Although the CEO's order is later downplayed after a horrified Karen learns of her grandfather's actions, he still insists that Yariba become Karen's friend and keep an eye on her. Eiji Yariba soon finds himself juggling huge challenges in the sales department, in his personal relationships, as well as in his task of maintaining a non-romantic relationship with Karen while developing her writing.

29 to Jk has such an interesting premise. Through the synopsis, you are given that you are following a 29 year old corporate slave named Yariba Eiji who has managed to get a 15 year old high school girl named Karen to become interested in him and even fall in love with him. That alone suggests that this manga would have some assemblance of a funny and cute story about their relationship and how it progresses despite the fact that their age groups are so far apart from each other. Well that’s not the case at all. This story only has a few key ...

Preliminary (18/29 eps)
29 to JK is a manga about the trials and tribulations of a coach at a Japanese call centre selling car insurance, with a weird and unnecessary love aspect tacked on. We see from his perspective how he deals with corporate schemes and helps his colleagues on the work floor.

First things first - this is not a manga about lolicons (as of July 2019 at least). I can't fault you for thinking otherwise since the first page does remarkably little to convince the reader to keep on reading the story. It's a bit of a shame since the manga doesn't need an infatuated high school ...

Preliminary (11/29 eps)
For someone who is about to get involved with adulthood, I found 29 to JK to be really informational. Take notes that I still have not done reading this yet, so my review might be incomplete in a lot of ways.

Story : 9
The story is about workers at a call centre, that is under a car insurance company. To be honest, the manga shows how works there are done in great details. I really appreciated those details because they showed me how works are done in a company. Although, this is probably not exactly the same to the real world, it is still a great ...
