A girl who seems to lack social skills and awareness decides to show her love to the guy she likes. Due to her persistence, the guy assumes a passive role and is often dragged by the girl to undertake particular activities that are often abnormal in nature.
The manga Choku! faces a severe disadvantage in advertising itself. The synopsis certainly doesn't do this manga justice and implies this manga is just a generic shounen romantic comedy. Admittedly, it's premise and plot really are generic, but I truly enjoyed this manga more than any other manga that I've read in awhile. I love this manga because its humor is crude and hilarious and the protagonists are cute and appealing.
Perhaps the biggest fault in this manga is the complete lack of story early in the series. The reader is literally thrown into a scenario and pulled along a series of random events of no correlation whatsoever. The "supposed" romance is actually nowhere to be seen until the near the halfway point. Despite this, I don't think that this harms the manga in any way. More importantly, the light-hearted and comedy-centric beginning is what made the eventual plot far more attractive to me. The romance does come eventually, and it is very satisfying in my opion. In fact, I believe it is becoming increasingly rare to find a manga such as this one that uses calm rather than melodrama to cause the reader to appreciate the romance.
Luckily, even without a proper story, I think this manga would still get a very solid score from me. I am very biased, but I absolutely adore socially awkward characters and the two protagonists are extreme cases of my adoration. The number of sub-characters is extremely lacking, but this the uniqueness of the protagonists more than makes up for this. The male protagonist, Nao, is a your generic passive ecchi shounen hero. There's a slight twist in his characterization in that he is rather feminine (HE'S A TRAP) and his pervertedness is surprisingly tame. His female counterpart, Serika, is the most unorthodox female personality I've encountered in a manga. In fact, she is the source of all the crude humor which leads into the next topic of...
Indeed, the entire basis of this manga is the humor. The comedy in this manga is very hit-or-miss. It is especially important to note that if you dislike the nose-bleeding early in the manga, it becomes less and less gruesome (is that the right word?) as the manga continues. Rather, I'd like to emphasize how the author's humor is primarily crude in nature. Toilet humor. If you don't like that type of stuff then you certainly won't enjoy half of the jokes throughout this manga.
I admit that 9 is a little generous for this series, but I don't feel it quite deserves an 8. Basically, if you are looking for a calm, angst-free romance then this is the manga for you. If you are sick of clever puns and proper humor, then try out this book of dirty jokes. If you are in search of a semi-short manga to waste your time with, read this manga. Either way, this manga will either leave you questioning why you are even reading such a deranged manga, or having you fall in love with this manga's charm.read more
I've read only 5 chapters (only ones available online) but it's good enough for a review. Bear with me.
So it's about this girl making this guy do whatever the hell she wants with him. There's is actually no real story line to this; like it is what it is. Just a bunch of random stuff here and there. Romance? I could barely say this manga shows almost anything related to romance; only like 1 or 2 lines I would be able to say pertaining to romance. It's mostly just erotic and awkward things with this so called couple.
It's okay I would say. I bet this is the only normal thing about this manga. I'm surprised there's no sort of ecci in this, based on the characters/plot.. o-o
Don't get me started on the girl this mangaka created. Lol honestly I thought the mangaka was on drugs making this type of character up. So her name is Serika and she "loves" Nao. I put quotes because she somewhats shows weird affection towards him but he never agreed to go out with her in the first place o__o. She doesn't know a thing about friendship let only love. Oh yeah and she has random nosebleeds. It looks like she was born yesterday, weirdest kind of character I've seen.
I also hate that Nao is so damn passive and agrees to do all this shit she makes him do. He would definitely be one of those losers in an ecci harem manga.
^These are basically the only characters in the story so yeah.. ENJOY~
It was funny yet awkward I guess. From time to time i would lol at myself and say "why am I still reading this" xD. It's kinda stupid here and there but I kept reading for the lols.
Very random and weird. If you're bored read this lol. Nothing really great about it. Just check out chapter 1 and instantly you would say you hate it or you like it.read more
Going into Choku i had no idea what awaited me,from the sympnosis and main picture used i thought this was some dram-romance story or something
And then i started reading it.
WHERE DO I BEGIN????
WHERE CAN I BEGIN????
HOW DO I GIVE THIS ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE THE JUSTICE IT DESERVES??????????????????????
Choku is the story of the watamote duo doing it again (btw this was made by the guys who made watamote)
making a hilarious gag manga with a bit of realness here and there mixed in
our main protag-kun Nao meets this weird maiden who wants to take a dump with him
the series follows these two having wacky adventures and trying to become a couple
Protag-kun is always embarrased and hates these wacky adventures
but he slowly grows attached to this ball of energy of a perv
and yeah it's pretty good,it gets a bit too cringey here and there just like in watamote,but it's still good
