I watched the Happy World OVA some time ago, and although it had potential, I never really considered it to be anything of note, especially given the amount of fanservice in one episode. Imagine my surprise to find it as a 72 chapter manga by Takeshita Kenjirou, and also to find that the series was very different to my first impressions of it from the OVA.

The series revolves around a boy named Oomura Takeshi, and his various trials and tribulations brought on by the fact that he is the only person in the world who will never have any good luck. In order to help read more

This is some weird, but good manga, I don't recomend it to starter in the matter of manga, you will surely will get shocked.

A good story, it actually contains almost all type, from drama, to action and battles. this story starts whit just two characters, but it increase fast. It starts a little so-so but after you end the first chapter you will be hooked faster than you ever thinked.

Its clear and good-looking, the special effects, like demons and armours are well designed and original. It's hard to read more

Bless all of you who gave this mangu a chance, if your first exposure to HW! was the OVA. Admitedly the story starts off a bit slow for the first few volumes and finally wanders the better part of a volume before Takeshita brings in the "SRS BIZNIZ" arc.

The art early on is a bit rough and the character design a bit weak. It rapidly becomes clean and sharp, cute when need be and very detailed and a well designed epic when need be.

The characters grow and develop nicely. We see the good and bad and in-between sides of not just the leads read more

Happy world is one of the most underrated mangas of all time. For a story with a great main cast and hilarious supporting cast, Happy world's manga is not as well known as it should be. Many people watched the OVA before reading the manga, and if I did this as well, I wouldn't have read the manga either. However, the OVA shouldn't get in your way of picking up this great read.

Story 8/10
The story has an interesting enough plot line, filled with many great arcs. Of course, a long the way there are chapters made for nothing but the reader to be pleased.
