True stories never fail to grab my attention, especially in the manga world because there are very few. I started reading Yomawari Sensei not onlt because of this, but also because it was short and had good ratings on MAL. I finished it in about 2 hours and I'd like to share what I thought made Yomawari Sensei a masterpiece. This is my first review so it might be a little bit amateurish.

Yomawari Sensei is an episodic manga that follows the life of our main character, Osamu Mizutani, as a teacher who helps troubled youth. Every chapter is quite simple. Mizutani finds a troubled youth, read more

It has been a very long time since a story touched me as profoundly as this one. As an average young adult, I felt like the author was speaking directly to my soul; the principles and virtues put forward are what we should all be striving towards to make this world a better place.

The true story of Osamu Mizutani's life resonates with what makes us human, encourages us to keep the faith and look forward to the bright future. This manga filled me with optimism while also bringing me to tears.

Fight on my brothers and sisters, never give up!

To be completely honest this is a masterpiece.

With this manga it explores a lot of dark themes but always brings out a positive message. It is about a high school teacher who does night patrol (which is based of the experiences the author had doing this) in summary.

Art (7/10)

For most of it the art isn't insane but Its not terrible. Its the only psrt that isnt a 10/10

Story (10/10)

To complex for my small pea brain to describe just read it

Characters (20/10)

Some of the most lovable characters and it hurts knowing that most of the stories in here have no happy ending.

In summary this is a read more

Story was incredibly realistic. It doesn't pull any punches when it comes to highlighting the terrible aspects of existence.
It doesn't glorify anything, instead using the constant negative aspects to promote an ultimately positive and meaningful message.
The manga repeats over and over again that many children are tortured, essentially, by bad parenting and a lack of attention and help from society as a whole. I find this highly relevant and important - I can recommend the manga for this reason alone.

Art doesn't mean anything to me but I found it very good.

The protagonist exemplifies everything good about humanity. Some may find him too read more
