I honestly can't do this manga justice, I really can't. If in your entire life, you could rate one thing, one manga, one anime, one anything, a 100/10, this would get my vote. Let's talk about it.

Jitsu Wa is about a boy who can't keep secrets falling in love with a girl who turns out to be a clumsy vampire. Along the way, he meets an alien, a werewolf, a demon, an angel, and so much more. From the basic concept, this story should fail, right? Right? No.

Jitsu wa is a manga that subverted my expectations.

The story is pretty simple, the end goal being to read more

I couldn't stand not doing a review, I goddamn love this series. And while the first chapters might give you the wrong impression, all I can do is tell you to try to see what this manga is really about. You might think it's about outrageous comedy, perverts, many girls liking the main character and... well then, it's about that, but NOT ONLY about that. Let me explain further on.

To me this manga was like living alongside the characters through all the comical to ridiculous, full of energy and passion, adventures of high school. It was so damn refreshing and unique. I could rarely read more

When it comes to rom-com this is top performance.
This manga single handedly destroyed rom coms as a whole for me.
Whenever a rom com gets barely under my radar i inmediately think. It's not gonna be as good as Jitsu Wa, why even bother.
It goes without saying that i consider this pseudo harem supernatural comedy as a god damn masterpiece and every other rom com/slice of life with romance is not good enough to be even compared to Jitsu wa.

Expect from this review to be filled with nothing but praise.
In fact the manga is so god damn perfect that its easier to start by saying the read more

Good Gods, I'd forgotten how bloody brilliant this series was. I mean, seriously there are a few rom-coms about that aren't bad, possibly a couple related to vampires (including Rosario to Vampire, a personal favourite of mine, but not for the same reasons), but this one is the epitome of rom-comminess! It artfully mixes a nice romance story (with a little harem on the side) with well-timed humour and comedy. I could go on, but I feel that I don't have the words to fully describe this series, so go read it!

Anyway, I'll quickly go over the points, starting with the art: it quite good. read more

This week on Jitsu wa Watashi wa, the show returns to what (and who) really makes it work best, and the results are predictably good. When it's good, this may just be the funniest comedy of the season.
