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), ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
