The discovery of alien life has turned the once serene planet Industria into a world of racism and perpetual conflict. Young orphan Astro lives his life with one goal: to work hard and earn enough wages to care for a group of fellow orphans he has adopted as his own family. Astro's simple life is disrupted when he encounters Bulge, the Crown Prince of Industria who is his age and shares his exact face. The prince is fleeing his royal obligations in pursuit of debauchery.

The royal military captures Astro after mistaking him for the prince, ripping the young orphan away from the family he cares about. With the King of Industria misidentifying Astro as his own son, the boy is forced into the royal lifestyle. He spends his days training in the art of combat under the high-ranking young soldier Tiamat, whose only perceivable weakness is a crippling fear of women.

After foiling an assassination plot and awakening the powers of the ancient lance Orgue, Astro is sent off with Tiamat to train with his new weapon to end the petty conflict between humans and aliens across the planet's surface.

"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

From the same creator as MY HERO ACADEMIA, one of the best shounen I have ever seen ( I am talking about my hero academia). The manga I've never read through.

Sensei no Bulge.

The Best Shounen Manga I've Ever Read.

The story is cliche in the beginning but if you keep on reading ( I'd say past chapter 5 ) It's gonna get really good. The plot is really interesting and original. The art is just outstanding. If you like the MHA art your gonna love this one. And the attention to detail is really good. Not gonna lie, the character is pretty cliche. But this was read more

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

This manga is very underrated I read this book when I was younger and I forgotten about it till now. But it was made by the same person who made My hero Academia and I'm a fan of his work so I was looking on what else he did and I remembered this book. I'm kinda sad it only got two valumes but it's definitely worth the read if you like Horikoshi's work.

Horikoshi's art stile is very noticeable and easy to remember and I can see that some of the characters have similar designs from MHA characters so that's cool. The story is read more
