An ordinary, bored, bullied high-school boy. A mysterious, frail and cute transfer student who just happens to be a feared delinquent and studies the Chupacabra. They meet and start going out together. What can go wrong?
Talk about a manga, that started low and never moved. Tsujiura-san to Chupacabra was a romance manga, that really just wanted to have the word romance in it and nothing else.
My first reaction:NISEKOI RIP-Off ( and I dont even like Nisekoi to begin with and I could see this a mile away)
So the story of Tsujiura-San being a beautiful ass-kicking beast of a girl who makes a random nobody into her boyfriend to hide her rep is nothing speial.In fact its quite stale and even her love for finding wierd unexplained mysteries seems cliche and overdone.
On top of that, there are barely
anything else to gravitate to .The rivals are all one dimensional and overused,there are no family members (apart from the overused snob little sister) and it doesnt do anything special that any other manga hasnt done before.
The only time it had any semblence of likability was when the two main boys started a rock band, which was a bit funny.Too bad the next chapter was the final one.
And Im glad it did, this felt like a manga that overstayed its welcome, by 30 chapters.And trust me ,If you're looking for a new take on Romance in this day and age, you wont find it here
First, this is a love triangle, almost close as harem, but not as it is. There's a Short review below if you don't want to read the long review.
It started as a cliched romantic comedy with cliched setting, even though it's cliched, it has a decent comedy with almost "breaking the 4th wall" trope.
But the potential of this manga was a cut off after its ending, literally it was axed. There couple of chapter in which it was getting interesting, it was "Deconstruction of Harem(though it was love triangle) and that potential would have made this manga better than any cliched manga. But it's a
shame that it ended abruptly while having the same ending without any resolve relationship.
The are is quite below average, the characters are distinguishable, yet in the closer look, they almost look the same. The expression is just average, the same the background, at least this manga will make you laugh when it comes to its humor. The general art is not really bad, nor decent, it's not even mediocre, it's just OK, well as long as it is readable, I don't have any problem on it.
Characters: 4(states that it is decent)
The characters are the highlight of the show, and they were able to make some characters who are better than any average characters in many series. For it was able to develop its characters, while maintaining its humor, especially their personality, which is quite cliched, but at the same time, funny. Before it ends Saotome Ryou or the rich boy has questioned the Idea of having stagnant, which makes him the Best character in this manga, and he was better than any mcs out there, that's why the score for the character is 4, since there's a decent guy in the series, but at the same time, it ended without a clear relationship, which really sucks.
Enjoyment: 5(not a mediocre in my scoring)
So far, it didn't rely on fanservice, but rather on comedy(one of the best genre every) every characters makes a joke about cliched setting especially when they mention their own part on the scene, which makes me laugh, but at the same time, I wasn't able to enjoy it that much, since this manga was axed, and its potential was killed, not that I can blame the production, since it's trying to deconstruct its Harem, or should I say, it's against the Editors(especially Nisekoi) Well as long that it was able to show its potential, then it's ok for me, and at least ir did try to deconstruct its harem and Saotome Ryou developed as a supporting character, which is missing in many mangas(many supporting characters are just a display for a harem show) so if you think its worth it or not, I would say it's worth it for its Comedy and their MVP Saotome, while not worth for its cliched setting.
Story: 3 - Cliched setting but was able to show its potential on deconstructing its love triangle
Art: 3 - not bad, nor good, almost has the same character design and everything is below average, but was able to express its theme.
Character: 4 - Only Saotome Ryou lifted this the cliched characters
Enjoyment 5 - Enjoyable for its comedy.
Overall: 3 - Wasted Potential and poor production(axed), I don't wanna score it 2 since it's the for cliched setting or just average or 4 since it's for Decent series.
Pretty much writing this just to contradict Shamone2131's ridiculous review.
Just to sum his review up "I don't like that main girl is pretending to date the MC and beat him up! Wahh 1/10".
Ok then, first of all, if the synopsis didn't give it away already, that's basically one of the running gags of the manga. It literally says she's a delinquent. The kicker here is that he read all 16 TLd chaps before complaining about how much he hates Tsujiura being violent. If that was such a deal breaker, he should've dropped it after ch.2. He wishes he could
erase the manga from his brain, yet the manga told you exactly what it was going to be from the get-go. His own time wasted then.
But, I digress. Let me get into a REAL review. I'll keep it brief.
Kiritani Yuu is an average kid who tries to never stand out at school. His life goal is to be a longer who doesn't attract attention. Tsujiura Megumi is a notorious delinquent who transfers into the school...oh and she believes in cryptids like a diehard. Tsujiura doesn't want to ruin her nice girl persona at her new school, otherwise she risks getting kicked out again. When all is said and done, Tsujiura recruits Yuu into her fake couple plan to keep all of the creeps away.
Now that the kid who wanted to be a loner is blackmailed into dating a violent, cryptid loving transfer girl, hijinks ensues. Lot's of chupacabras, lots of insanely weird characters appearing trying to cause trouble, and lots of misunderstandings.
If you like crazy rom-com's with aggressive tsundere's and weird ass supporting characters, then give it a shot. It's got a unique quirky art style...and random cryptid moments. If that's your kind of thing, then give it a try. Please just don't take the angry little weebs review with anything more than a grain of salt.
I have never been so angered by a manga in my life. *slight story spoilers* This one utilizes the fake boyfriend cliche (which is awful to begin with) and smothers with it you until you choke and die. The main protagonist is forced to date a cruel and manipulative girl, who uses him and (love hina style) beats him to a pulp constantly.
