I've never written a review before, but I figure I should, because I think this manga is rather underrated.
I really love the "delinquents with heart" trope, which is why I also like Kyou Kara Ore Wa!! (made by the same author). This mangaka in general tends to write stories with rather similar character archetypes, but if you are fond of those types, then it is hard not to be charmed.
This manga has a similar feeling at times, but it is focused solely on a boy's journey to learn to what it means to be a 'good person' and to pursue that ideal.
it is nothing too deep or mind blowing, I found the characters to be incredibly likeable. I loved the main character most of all, and I enjoyed seeing such a humorous take on his struggles to learn how to empathize and do good for others around him.
The art is nothing too impressive, but it gets the job done, and a lot of the expressions are very cute. Essentially I'd say that if you like 'bad boys' who are actually pretty dorky, then it's something you shouldn't pass up. It's not overly long, and it's a light read as it is mostly comedy. I'd recommend at least reading the first few chapters to see if it's your kind of thing.
Holy cow! NO ONES WRITTEN A REVIEW OF THIS?!
Okay, I'm writing a review of this because it deserves one.
Story (9): This story is inspiring to say the least. It talks about a guy who went through elementary school and middle school being the head delinquent (his nickname is devil-ma kun!) and turning a new leaf and joining a tea club. It's all in the pursuit of being kind as his life's goal. That's admirable! He goes through ups and downs to find himself. It's all hilarious no matter what the situation, but it's definitely deep. It's just a normal high school manga, but
it's unique to being fully focused on clubs. It's really cool. I'm not trying to be biased though.
I gave it one point less than ten because nothings perfect story wise.
Art (8): The artwork is super unique, no kidding. They all actually look Japanese, no one with purple hair, or blue eyes (you can tell by the shading and covers). And Devil- ma kun actually has devilish eyes, which intrigued me even more. It gets an 8 because, it may be unique but it isn't something to gawk at that long.
The characters get developed quite nicely, if I do say so myself. Even if it is fully comedy, you still learn about Ma-kun's past, and his buddies pasts. They do go back in time, And no one has a dull personality in the tea club, and their neighbors the anime club. They all have their own hilarious quirks.
I gave it a ten because nothing makes me laugh this much (rarely) except sun-ken rock. It's super enjoyable and if you like delinquents, funny situations, and stand offs this is the manga for you. There is also a tiny bit of romance in it that you can't help but love.
READ IT! IT'S WORTH IT! Sorry for all the caps, but still I want you to read it and enjoy it. I thought it deserved a 9 because it's so nice. I love this kind of manga. It's totally realistic, well at least mostly.
