On the once-peaceful planet of Industria, constant battles have been fought over control of the planet. Astro is a dim witted but kind boy who tirelessly works to feed his "family," a group of orphaned children. One day, after being fired from his most recent job, the prince of Industria, Bulge, appears in front of him. And even more shocking, Prince Bulge looks and sounds exactly like Astro! One thing leads to another, and Astro now has to take Bulge's place as the heir to the throne of Industria! Suddenly, he's faced with the task of bringing peace and harmony back to this war-torn planet!

Sensei no Baruji/Barrage - An Underrated Manga.

There are those stories that simply can't go up in popularity because (maybe) the readers are waiting for the same kind of storytelling that comes from the same magazine and with that, the shonen genre becomes our daily bread. Barrage was one of the works that managed to overcome the barrier of popularity because of today, the person behind this work is best known for creating the mega-hit "My Hero Academia" [or in Japanese "Boku no Hero Academia"] which currently has several animations and a second season currently airing.

The problem with Barrage [or in Japanese "Sensei no Baruji"] is read more

"I'm the prince scumbag!! I'm gonna pierce straight through you!!!"

First off, my first review for this site, and its late at night. This will be as spoiler free as possible, put I am gonna explain some things (Most of which are explained in the first chapter, so their not really spoilers)

So, Sensei no Bulge (Or Barrage as I believe it is officially called in America), is a story about a boy named Astro, who grew up in the slums of the planet...Industria I believe it is called.

Astro is basicaly a typical Shounen Protagonist. Hes stupid (though smart when he needs to be in a fight), read more

Well since it got past 10 chapters, guess Ill give it a 6/10 instead of a 5. It had potential really with interesting character designs and a main character that was cool and lovable. His side character partner, Tiamat was also good with this time frame. I would have liked more backstory on him given. The potential for a long adventure was actually here as well as a potentially deep and immersive world. Its terrible that it had to be cancelled early and lots of details left hidden. Rushed ending chapter though :/

For 16 chapters it is worth checking out for its sci fi theme read more

Interesting setting and memorable, easy-to-understand characters, but the plot progression ran in conflict with the entire synopsis, and it sort of stumbled over its own feet as a result.

The pitch: Plucky protagonist boy replaces his royal double in a sci-fi fantasy re-imagining of the Prince and the Pauper, with stress on how he's more worthy of the role of prince, but his double was still a real person (who is nothing like him) and his loss is felt by most of the characters, both positively and negatively.

The story: Plucky protagonist gets a new awesome weapon and wanders off into the featureless desert to fight mooks read more
