His kind and helpful nature leads to special encounters on a daily basis, whether it be with his younger siblings at home or just someone he meets on the street. Through these interactions and brand new experiences, Machida begins to learn more about himself and the differences between the various types of love.

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 the few that actually manages to portray how sweet and lovely kindness can be. While it’s so heavily underrated, the manga's positive and calming vibe just keeps outbursts like a river stream. In all honesty, I am really glad that I found this hidden gem and I sincerely want to thank both the translator and the author. In other words, this manga truly deserves more attention.

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 read more

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

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
