I tried this manga out of curiosity due to it having a really interesting title, “No Bra, No Panties, No Future”. The first impression I got after reading that title was like “what the hell is this? Is this some kind of a parody of No Game No Life? Or is it a light version of No Damage No High School Life?”. I expected something lewd and stupid random ecchi scenes to appear. Man.. was it so surprising.
No Bra, Bo Panties, No Future offers a kind of stupid joke yet it’s so touching and funny to read. It’s not an ecchi one at all. It
centers on the main girl, Kanako Hidaka, who is portrayed as someone ambitious and do the best and be total to achieve what she wants. Because that side of her, she often forgets other important things. But when she comes into realization, she never gives up and tries to protect both, in this sense her vision and future, at all cost.
Beside the main girl, there are also these guys who usually play at school due to being influenced by the TV. All they do may seem too random because these guys are the main antagonists who’re also used as the tool to create tension and joke. They usually put Kanako in a worry able situation and are the main threat for Kanako’s future. Also Mi-chan and Yo-chan, two friends of Kanako, who value their friendship with Kanako to the point they will sacrifice themselves for the sake of Kanako’s future.
No Bra, No Game, No Future isn’t merely a stupid-funny manga. It does explore the value of friendship and how the TV can be so influential. It’s also about being focus on your vision and total. But what if you already tried your best and be total yet failed?, you’ll lose one, two or maybe three.
