I've got to say that this manga is probably one of the best ones I've ever read. You know when you feel like trying the manga your friend suggested for weeks? You don't look very forward to do so, but you still think of giving it a chance, even tough you probably think that will be a waste of time. However, after a few pages you're starting to get addicted to it without knowing. Does this situation ring some bells? Well, this is exactly what happened to me with Yankee kun to Megane chan. Such a humorous and fantastic story, I just had to rate read more

From a summary, one would assume that this is a stereotypical high-school romance where opposites attract, but this reviewer assures you, it is far from that. Absolutely ridiculous, yet that's what makes it so enjoyable. We've no average character tropes here; Hana is the total antithesis to the banal class representatives previously seen. She's violent, completely lacks common sense, isn't all too clever. She usually scores lower than Shinagawa, leading to amusing score face offs. Whenever she decides to pull an all niter with regards to study, she ends up falling asleep during the study, and can't be woken the next day, for the read more

Note: This is my first review. I have read quite a few mangas, but never before had I felt the need to write one.

The problem with most of the other reviews is: They are outdated - written before the end of the manga. And let me tell you, untill the ending, the manga is really good. However, I was mainly in it for the romance between the two main characters - although the development was really slow, I don't think it's necessarily a problem in a slice of life story like this.
So, let me tell you this very cleary: The ending is the read more

This manga's storyline/plot is very entertaining and amusing. I first started reading it, and I couldn't stop! The characters are created so nicely that you just can't help but laugh at even the most stupid jokes that are made. I think that is you enjoy stories where characters get together throughout the story, then yuo'll like this because Hana Adachi is someone who goes out and makes friends, and you enjoy seeing how she does things.

If you humor some aspects and forgo some minor inconsistencies, you'll most likely enjoy this manga.

The art is top notch. Great when serious, adorable and funny when not.

The idea is interesting, way more than the title suggests. This mangaka is more than competent when throwing twists or developing characters.

However, they've invested so much of the story into developing interest in the female protagonist. A lovable character, with a seemingly dark background. The writer had laid out several hooks and cliff hangers early on in the story and even more intense ones near the end. Not one was used. So what potentially could've been the read more

I can sympathize with author Miki Yoshikawa's dilemma. She was a lowly 23 year-old assistant on "Fairy Tail" when she got a chance to write a one-shot in 2005. Yoshikawa knocked it out of the park, coming up with a creative, funny scenario involving two oddball, likable characters in Shinigawa, the "Yankee-kun" of the title, and Adachi, the "Megane-chan". The bespectacled heroine tries to convince the school delinquent, camping out in the bathroom, to go on a class field trip.

After this initial success, Yoshikawa was offered her own series based on the one-shot in a popular magazine at only 24. read more

I skipped it at first, thinking, yeah another one of those bad guy x class rep girl scenarios. BOY, WAS I WRONG TO JUDGE MANGA BY IT'S NAME :)
- Great, rough art style, the facial expressions can be murderously funny
- Lots of random, school inspired humor
- Very Dynamic, but still maintaining a balanced pace of action
+ Yankee-kun's damns, fucks and go to hell's are an enriching value :")
The Megane, Adachi is more than the megane suggest, she's like a Haruhi Suzumiya, without the supernatural factor, but still an unconventional DeusxMachina in itself. Warning: she can be unbelievably stupid (in a good way), read more

Before I start, I would like to mention that my opinion of this manga is not always a 8/10. It would be like "Wow interesting and fun manga!" to "Kinda a typical school life and school council manga" to "Finally some character history and reeeaaall development!!" then finally to chapter 199, looking at the whole package, I give a 8/10.

Story: 8/10
The story is the main focus of every manga. And the story of this manga seemed to range in quality in huge ways. The focus was often blurred due to new concepts, events and characters thrown in and abandoned in a few chapters (The read more

One thing I can DEFINITELY say about this awesome manga is Adachi and Shinagawa PWNS ALL!!!! If you're considering to read this manga, be ready 'cause you're in for a sweet surprise! The first few chapters seemed a little pointless to read because it was about getting Shinagawa to go on these school trips and vacations, but as it introduces fun and kwirky characters into the story, it gets better because of the supposed mystery girl Shinagawa likes, and Adachi's past. And if you're also one of the people who likes characters who change over time, keep a look-out on Adachi! This manga's character read more

To everyone who's hesitating whether should read this series or shouldn't, I highly recommend you guys to read this.

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan isn't any of those stereotypical mangas about romances being included in school life and such, it's different in an unique way. You'll see a really funky opening of the story-- believe me, it IS funky-- and the more you continue to read the series, the more you enjoy it. The characters are all well-made, even though Adachi Hana could get on your nerves sometimes, but she's one of the most hilarious character ever appeared on a series. Her idiocy is so entertaining in some read more

This is genuinely one of the most bizarre things I've ever read.

It may seem strange that this is the case as, for the most part, this manga is just another inoffensive romcom. In fact, I actually believe a large majority of this manga is respectable. It has a unique cast of lovable characters and is supported by its wonderful art. The series does take an obvious decline starting at around the halfway point with constant introductions of pointless, uninteresting characters and overused formulas/storylines, but most of it was bearable. Problems like this exist in most long-running romance comedies, and I am definitely no stranger to read more

story about the main girl , Hana Adachi : a real idiot, however, she has a huge guts to dare to do any things, she is the strongest being in her universe and she has a good heart.
the series is pretty enjoyable to a point , the point that hurt me deeply: when a good person abandoned by their friends.
i rated the story and character 10, an outstanding work of showing how real life friendship work :

To be perfectly honest, I had no idea what to expect before reading this, but I figured it should be great seeing as it had my favorite manga of Fairy Tail. I was very disappointed when I read it. It was very confusing, and I struggled to find out what was going on. This short story was funny, but it did not seem very well done in my perspective. I did not like the fact that a school came over to the guild Fairy Tail to try out for a job there (I may be wrong, I was quite confused). I gave it a 7 read more

tl;dr: A manga that has a solid build up as a group of friends go through high school showcasing well them enjoying the things high school students do, but has a completely worthless ending. 

This manga starts out pretty great. Watching Daichi and company go through three years of high school is great because the manga heavily focuses on highlighting the great aspects of just normal life, though in a pretty exaggerated fashion. The main cast is a really interesting bunch, and there’s a really solid group of reoccurring supporting characters alongside them that are used quite well in repeating roles. There’s also solid character development read more

This is my first review for anything. I'll make it short. Basically, if you want a good, satisfying ending, this isn't for you. Granted, it isn't that bad either.

I got into this series without knowing anything about it, author and plot, and overall it was a very enjoyable read with a very slow paced romance(if any). There were many loose ends that were completely ignored but it wasn't a big deal until that ending.

If you are going to read this manga, please note, you are going to read a series that throws away the suspension it built for 200 chapter on the last read more

Okay... This is my first review. My deepest apologize if i have some mistakes in english. So, yankee-kun to megane-chan, first time i decided to read this manga just because i really interest in school life's story. When i saw the art (honestly, i'm the kind of person who see the cover first and then decided to read) i was sure that it would be comedy. And then i begun to read it. What a surprise. It isn't comedy at all. I mean it's true that japanese manga art never contains a single genre of story. But in this manga we can also learn about read more

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan is an extremely cliche manga yet still very enjoyable with a lovable cast.
It starts out with a typical delinquent who's scared by everyone, then forced by class Rep to do stuff. There's every cliche in the book, delinquent fights, student council is involved, helping out others, college, etc. etc. Despite the somewhat lackluster story-line, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan has an enjoyable cast of characters with hilarious interactions and decent amount of character development.
the art style really shines for hilarious moments but is still mediocre.
Overall, characters are great, amazing humor, but the story-line is too cliche.
Props to the story for actually read more
