Sanada North High School is home to three ordinary boys—Tadakuni, Hidenori, and Yoshitake—who get into ordinary situations that any high school boy could find himself in. Rather than fretting over relationships or aiming for the national championships, the trio finds themselves trying on skirts, maximizing their summer vacation, and musing with a hopeless romantic by the riverside. The constant clash of their conflicting personalities sparks various events that depict the absurd yet relatable daily lives of high school boys.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Most of us have been through highschool. But our lives definitely weren't as funny as they are illustrated in this manga.

Daily Lives of Highschool Boys is an outstanding gag manga, and so, one of my favourite comedies written to date. It had me furiously laughing whenever I had a read. The concept is a very simple one. It just illustrates daily lives of highschool students in a silly yet funny manner. The manga takes situations that every highschooler at some point in their life might have encountered, exaggerates them a little, and turns it into a gag, which most of the times is nothing short read more

I don't really know what to say about the story... is there one? Kind of? There are at some parts and in some chapters, but most is just going about, well, the daily lives of highschool boys. There really isn't that much to say about it otherwise. A chapter follows a plot and it follows through nicely, but when these span over several chapters, they are a lot more amusing and engaging.


Yasunobu Yamauchi is an amazing mangaka, and he actually dulled down with this series, on purpose mind you. He liked the idea of making a simpler design that would better represent and display the read more

Just personal scratch.
Advised, possible spoilers.
Opinion & Informal

Art: 5/10
The art was, objectively, sort of eh. Nothing wrong with rough art if the content is good which was the case lol. The proportions and anatomy checked out but there was minimal shading, dimensionality, and tones used. There were a few scattered impact shots which were funny but not artistically impressive. There were no panoramics, environmental shots, or showcases of artistic skill.

Panel Progression: 7/10
The panel progression actually was pretty average, but the punchlines were impactful most of the time. No use of panel-cutting or flair in layout. Progression was mostly linear and straightforward which is fine. The read more

First things first, how's it going everyone? Hope today is a good day for you. Now that we got the formalities out of the way, I'll do some quick clarifications:
-English is not my first language, so if you see any grammar or spelling mistakes, dont hesitate to comment on my profile pointing out my mistake.
-I'll be writing this on an article style because I think is easier to read and write, and I'll be covering the overall story, so there will be no spoilers in here (I mean it's a slice of life/comedy manga, there are no spoilers to make what so ever)

Now that we read more
