Chio's School Road
Volume 1


This manga is a story of a nerdy bookworm girl on her way to school, and yes, that's the entire premise, as she's not getting to school any time soon. Taking her "usual" route to school, it becomes an increasingly unusual adventure, and all the more ridiculous as it carries on. It takes an unpleasant sentiment many can empathize with, the feeling of tardiness, and brings humor to it—making it a hilarious situation to look back upon.

'Bloody Butterfly.'

That's Chio's online gamer-tag name and the one she uses to associate herself with gangs and the police. You'd think for a manga that appears about Slice of Life that they spend most of their time at school. It's quite the contrary. They are spent having many hilarious and absurd moments, while on their way to school. It brings many chuckles out of to the reader. I find the comedic duo Chio and Manana to excel seeming genuine while devious at times, being that they're childhood friends. They bring out the best out one another with the many side characters that get introduced later ...

The concept of walking to school couldn't get any better than this. From fighting with friends to getting yourself into the worst scenarios possible, sometimes due to video game influence.

The concept of walking to school is a simple one and is seen in many animes and mangas, there isn't much going on besides walking and maybe talking. Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro's best trait are the characters, with some relate-able moments here and there sprinkled in. Chapters include various characters from her class mates, best friend, a homeless guy, and a bike gang member to name a few. All the characters feel fleshed out and work alongside ...

Preliminary (17/53 eps)
Chio-chan is a great read that makes me laugh hard every few pages.

The stories are mostly about Chio-chan going (walking / running / parkouring) to school, but the setting doesn't really feel like that usual high-schooly thing. There are rarely any pages where the characters are actually in school.

Sometimes the humour comes from strange situations the characters get into, sometimes it's the conversations they are having, but it's usually great. Its nature is intelligent, and often a bit absurd, but nothing close to Excel Saga, for example.

Sometimes you also get ... lewd vibes from some pages, but it's not the point of the manga, and ...
