Ousai Academy was originally an all-girls high school. Due to the declining birth rates in recent years, it was converted into a co-ed school. The first year male students would find themselves surrounded by girls and unfortunately, Tsuda Takatoshi is one of them. What's worse, he gets scolded on his first day by the student council president Shino Amakusa, which did not give a good first impression of him. Tsuda also meets the other student council members while getting scolded, and in the end, he gets late for class. As an apology for ruining his morning, Shino lets him join the student council for various of "reasons" and he accepts it, or rather, he's forced to accept. Thus begins his days as Tsuda soon realizes that he's the only normal student in Ousai Academy...
The cover looks so innocent and the synopsis sounds like it will be a nice Slice of life manga to read, until you start reading it. You will be met by terrifying contents not suited for children and it’s inevitable, YOU CANNOT ESCAPE…. He.. hehe… hehehe…
...What? We all love dirty jokes alright?
Seitokai Yakuindomo is famous for its hilarious sex jokes and misunderstandings. It’s simply about a young 1st year student named Tsuda Takatoshi who gets forced to join the student council. At first it might not sound so horrible, however, he has to deal with their sex jokes, dirty suggestions and wildness. The
things they say and do are incredibly unpredictable and it always leaves me facepalming myself or laughing hysterically.
This manga currently has over 300 chapters and is still publishing, as there are still many great sex jokes to discover! So far, the manga is focusing on the comedy, leaving the story behind but that doesn’t mean it’s bad or anything. Although I would appreciate it if it focused on both the comedy and story (but I can’t really complain yet since I’m only at chapter 101).
Also, it is arguable if Seitokai Yakuindomo should or should not really have the romance and harem tag. While it doesn't really show that much of those genres, there are many hints of romance here and there~
Art: 9/10 (Note that art only affects slightly on my overall rating!)
The art is pretty much a bit over average, however, the reason I rated the art so good is because how the author draws the characters differently depending on the situation. For example, one time they can discuss something important, giving them serious and well drawn faces. But then someone completely ruins the mood with most likely, a sex joke, and at that time they can be drawn cutely and/or ridiculously. You get the point.
The manga is also drawn with a 4koma style. If you don’t know what it means, you can just look at the cover at the bottom-right corner.
All of the characters are really hilarious and even the side characters take a big role in the “story”. You don’t forget a single one and none of them are plain boring either. After all, everyone are important for the sex jokes to “evolve”!
Let me first introduce you shortly to the four main characters in the student council.
The perverted yet dignified president, Shino Amakusa.
The perverted and rich secretary, Aria Shichijou.
The incredibly clever loli treasurer, Suzu Hagimura.
And lastly the victim... Tsuda Takatoshi!
And yes! There is actually character development, though It may be small, it is still noticeable overtime.
I really enjoy Seitokai Yakuindomo and I look forward to read more. This is recommended for all of the pervs out there who wants to learn few dirty jokes they can use in real life, or for those who just wants to laugh hysterically! I would rate it 10/10 if the author includes a bit more story, but I still am only at chapter 101!
You would probably think that after over 400 chapters of this manga, I would have had my fill of dirty jokes, but I am still waiting with baited breath for the next installment to drop from the authors God-tier talent. While primarily a gag manga, this series somehow manages to keep the reader interested with a small cast of characters and a simple scenario, while making them laugh with every chapter. If you have watched and enjoyed the anime adaptation, you will love this. As I read it, I could hear the voice actors in my head.
Story (8) - This series falls into slice of
life, and thus there is no real plot to talk about. The four main characters are high-school students and members of the student council who are constantly getting into misunderstandings and situations which offer ample opportunity for sex-related jokes. This lack of heavy plot can be refreshing and allows the sex-jokes to flow without pesky story developments getting in the way.
Art (8) - For me, art style is rarely the most important The art style may seem simple at first, but as you continue, it becomes obvious that the artist is able to display a full range of emotions for each character without a large amount of details. The artist also regularly changes the art style to a much less detailed, chibi-like style when the characters are making their dirty jokes.
Character (9) - The characters, where to start... Firstly, the student council girls all appear to be normal, intelligent, high-achievers, but when the protagonist gets dragged into the student council, the facade slips a little, and their more unconventional aspects to show through. Outside of the student council, a host of lovable and funny characters fills the space between boke moments.
The president, Shino Amakusa, is a dignified leader, highly reliable and loved by all in the school, commanding the respect of students and teachers alike. However, when she lets down her guard a little, her more perverted side shows through.
The Vice President and protagonist (though all four of the student council members seem equally important), Takatoshi Tsuda, a student who chose the school which was closest to home. After having the responsibility of being vice-president forced upon him, he quickly finds his place... as the resident tsukkomi to the others' antics. He is also incredibly dense, often totally misreading the mood of a conversation with the girls.
The secretary, Aria Shichijou, a beautiful, buxom, rich-girl. Airheaded and almost always carrying some type of sex-toy. Sometimes, she wears underwear, but not always... easily the most openly perverted of the cast.
The treasurer, Suzu Hagimura, the final council member and vertically challenged. God help those who call this genius small or compare her to a child. Fluent in english at the start of the series, she is quickly becoming fluent in tsukkomi too, offering much needed backup to Tsuda.
Enjoyment (10) - After reading 400 chapters of any other manga, I would probably have become sick of it. That is not the case with Seitokai Yakuindomo. After following the characters through the three or four summers of their second year, I am still in love with this series. Once you pick up the first volume, you will not be able to hold back, as you read chapter after chapter, unable to to stop.
Overall (9) - If I was asked to recommend a series to my family, it wouldn't be this, as the awkwardness and embarrassment would be too much. If a friend asked though, I would recommend this in a heartbeat. If you want to spend a couple of days laughing at potty humour, or are looking for a relatively plot-less filler while you wait for the next chapter of you favourite series to be released, i cannot think of anything more suitable.
This is my first review, so if you see anything wrong, let me know. I am sure I'll get better with experience and I hope this has helped you decide to read this wonderful series.
Please remember that this is my opinion, and you may not share it. Let us live and let live, okay?
Look, if you want intellectual comedy or real story, look elsewhere. This is straight-up bathroom humor at its very finest, distilled further into 4-koma form.
Pretty much every punchline is a dirty joke. Heck, it's amazing that there are this many possible variations on dirty jokes.
What's special about this is that it's female-oriented bathroom humor. Kind of refreshing in a disgustingly weird way, since bathroom humor tends to be more about guy things. Here, we get references to "that time," underwear, grooming, dating, attempting to amend the dropping Japanese birth rate, etc.
Anyways, it's a great escape back
to a really base form of humor. Consider it mental bleach.
This is the best manga I've ever read. It cracks me up every time with it's dirty jokes, and it's randomness.
Story: This is a comedy 4koma in a high school setting. There's not much to talk about story since it's not the manga's main point. It's random, stupid, and fun.
Art: It's seems a little simple, and the style is not quite beautiful, but it managed to please the eye with the character design.
Character: Every one has a specific character and each have there own purpose, all which makes the manga feels completed. But the main character, Tsuda is a little bit dense.
Enjoyment: Words cannot describe
the amount of humor in this manga. But numbers can. Solid 10/10
Overall: 10/10 best 4koma definitely would read again.
Also: This manga will introduce you to a fukton of new fetish, which you probably never knew before.
