Synopsis

When timid eleventh-grader and math genius Kenji Koiso (Ryuunosuke Kamiki) is asked by older student and secret crush Natsuki (Nanami Sakuraba) to come with her to her family's Nagano home for a summer job, he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki's family, the Jinnouchi clan, dates back to the Muromachi era (1336 - 1573), and they've all come together to celebrate the 90th birthday of the spunky matriarch of the family, Sakae. That's when Kenji discovers his "summer job" is to pretend to be Natsuki's fiance and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki's act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can't resist solving. As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a bizarre parallel world to collide with Earth, and it's up to Kenji and his new fake family to put reality back in order.

This is the first manga that I have felt compelled to write a review of. Some minor spoilers to follow.

First of all, a warning to everyone, the description that MAL provides is very misleading. The so called "parallel dimension" is actually a computer world.

The art is decent, I had no complaints about it, though it wasn't spectacular.

The characters however, really ruined it for me. To be quite frank, they were stupid and unbelievable. There was a lack of communication between all members of Natsuki's family, leading to the collapse of a huge computer server and thus eminent nuclear war, because one family member took read more

Okay, so the other reviewer has rightly pointed out that the premise of this particular manga is patently absurd. So, if you can't suspend your disbelief long enough to buy that a high school kid can encrypt code with a pencil and paper or that a virtual reality program could blow up the world, then you shouldn't be reading this manga. Please, go read something else.

For those of you who are left, you will find an enjoyable, short story. There is a nice little romance here and an absurd plot about AI. But the core of this manga, the reason to read more
