Synopsis

Fujita has drifted through middle school aimlessly, unable to find friends or anything that can hold his attention. Then, one day, he's attacked by a gang and saved by a mysterious man. But this isn't a karate master; it's a ballroom dance instructor! Reluctantly, Fujita takes a few beginner's classes, only to find his inspiration… an entrancing, teenage dance prodigy named Shizuku. It's Fujita's first step into the high-octane world of competitive dance!

My first Manga review so go easy on me please :)

As a fellow Ballroom Dancer-anime lover I naturally decided to look for a ballroom anime and this manga is the little gem that came up. I was not expecting much since the Japanese Wikipedia doesn't even contain a page for Swing so i just quickly skimmed the first chapter until I landed on page 20. At that moment I realized, damn this manga is actually pretty funny.

At first glance everything about the main character, Tatara, just seems like a robotic version of Touma from A Certain Magical Index. However as the story went on and read more

Note: I have had literally no interest in "Ballroom Dancing", which is what the manga focuses on, before reading this. The work isn't complete.

Ballroom e Youkoso is a work that for all intents and purposes, shouldn't excite any sort of interest within most people. While I'm sure there are some enthusiast ballroom dancers around, the premise itself doesn't lure anyone in. However, as I stumbled into the room of Ballroom, I found myself hooked and craving for more.

STORY: 7/10

I haven't done ballroom dancing, only ballet. But it's nice to see something about dance that focuses on the hardships, not the whole "dreams come true!" type of thing. We get to see the main character struggle. And it's not as unrealistic as I'd expect: Tatara makes it into not 1st, or even 2nd, at his first competition, but 7th. And he acknowledges the it was unlikely to even have landed there in the first place.
The Story, I give an 8. It's pretty typical, but ballroom, I think, is a first. I haven't seen any manga that focuses on ballroom dancing.
I love the read more
