“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde

Just what is a masterpiece? Perhaps it's something that greatly affects one's thought process, or maybe for some, it's a piece of work that mesmerises them to such a degree, that they are never able to forget said creation. Machida-kun no Sekai to me, is a masterpiece, in the truest sense of the word. Why is this the case? Well, it is very simple; this is a series that I have come away from with an evolved outlook on life. After reading this, I felt as though I had ...

Mixed Feelings
Machida-kun no Sekai is a pièce de résistance in the first half. A jesus-like protagonist delivering therapy in every interaction is difficult to write without feeling like hamfisted wholesomeness, but mangaka Andou Yuki manages to pass effortlessly by surrounding the ML with a perceptive support network that has adapted to his MC powers.

They are the real magic of Machida-kun and are ...

TL:DR
Ham-fisted and childish. Predictable trite. Actively frustrating Mary Sue protagonist with a cast of cardboard cut-outs and stock aesop characters plus a romance that falls flat. Do not recommend. Would actually be a good series for children though (that's not sarcasm) to teach them basic morals.

Story: 3/10
The focus of the manga is ostensibly Machida-kuns growth and yet he also doesn't really change in anyway. He's essentially perfect at the beginning of the manga and at the end the only real difference is that he's in love. What growth was there?

The messages the manga tried to deliver are the standard shounen stuff, be kind to others ...
