"B-Shock!" is mostly a screwball romantic comedy, a showcase for Nakano's wry sense of humor that does not often show in her work in "Young You". However, "B-Shock!" is also a shrewd commentary on the relationship between the upper and working classes.

B-shock is a romantic comedy manga about 2 college students, who meet a nutty Professor, and are suddenly forced to be extremely close to one another or else the watches on their wrist, courtesy of the Professor, will blow up, if they exceed the maximum amount of distance from each other.

As a comedy manga, it's good. Every day, due to their situation, they have to go through unique and funny situations. They have to go to the bathroom with one another, make the most ridiculous excuses as to why they can't be separated, and try to avoid scenarios that will keep them apart.
