Machida-kun seems like the perfect brother, son, and student because he loves people. Helpful when he needs to be, but puts himself down when he feels like a total failure. However, the people that surround his daily life are there as a reminder as why Machida-kun needs no improvements because the people love Machida.

Machida-kun no Sekai is a manga that encompasses the good and love in humanity. It is a simple tale, one about a young man and his daily hijinks helping people in need. Whether they be lost children, misguided delinquents or adults going through mid-life crises, it doesn't matter. Simplistic as it may seem, it's a good one, and reminds us all that we're all capable of kindness. This is a great manga. The art is soft, the story wholesome and Machida is just the kindest character I've ever seen in fiction. Do you want to gush and smile, or have eye-bleach after reading something like read more

A person's charm would be hard to express just with words, but
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Finally I've finished reading this beautiful gem. To be honest, this manga is one of few that actually manage to portrayed how sweet and lovely, kindness can be. While it’s underrated, the manga positive and calming vibe just keep outburst like a river stream. In all honesty, i am glad that we met and , sincerely thank you both translator and as well author. Take my words, this manga deserve more attention.

The story is about Machida-kun journey of his life, who is read more

Man this manga is something else. The story, character development and interactions, as well as the whole message behind the manga are so touching and genuine. You would sympathize with the character and experience the feelings that each chapter expresses, as well as learn a couple thing or two. The whole story of this manga is light but deep and easy to follow.

This manga is underrated and really deserves more attention for the emotion and feeling it can create while reading. The art looks pretty common among the shoujo genre, but its pretty clean. Really recommend reading this for a refreshing take on romance and read more

Ah it's my first time writing a review because I'm so so so glad I came across Machida-kun no Sekai. It's honestly such a refreshing manga to read, wholesome and very different from the usual shoujo manga.

Story: [9/10]
It seems like a simple story yet it's packed with wonderful lessons. It manifests that ever since we are born, we are wired for kindness. Just like Machida-kun, we can incorporate acts of kindness without getting anything in return and acquire a selfess concern for the welfare of others not simply for our sake. Also I want to add, I don't know if it's just me but the read more
