Synopsis

Welcome to Cromartie High—a melting pot of underachievers and overzealous bullies, where the fist rules and the student body has the combined I.Q. of a rusty nail. After a whole lot of bad judgment and a little bad luck, Takashi Kamiyama is now attending this academy of dunces. Here, his only homework will be defending himself against the foul-mouthed robots, semi-intelligent apes and masked villains that roam the halls of Cromartie High School!

Like any slice of life/school oriented manga there is not exactly a continuous story. Each short "arc" introduces new characters and scenarios that keep the manga new and exciting. Overall every new chapter is funny and gripping and will make you want to keep reading.


Art - 10

In any gag manga the artwork of the characters and their expressions is one of the biggest factors. Cromartie is not exception. The unique way in which Eiji draws faces is a huge contribution to the hilarity of the series.

Cromartie Koukou is a high-school in Tokyo with loose entrance requirements. How loose? A gorilla (an actual simian primate) and a middle aged man (that resembles a certain deceased rock-star) are students there. Not even the worst students mind you; Cromartie has a collection of the dumbest and most hardcore delinquents in all of Tokyo.

A good premise for a gag manga, but where is the straight guy? Enter Kamiyama, a painfully mainstream character that makes the dubious choice to attend Cromartie. The mangaka, Eiji Nonaka, has created a good setting and takes advantage of both his premise and read more
