Grigio Academy Boarding School. The students that attend this school come from two countries, and reside in their own dormitories. Inazuka and Persia are leaders of rival dorms, but in secret they love each other. Now, they have to keep their relationship a secret from their dorm mates or else bad things will happen to them.
Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet started as a one-shot I absolutely loved and is a modern take on the Romeo&Juliet formula.If you like that stuff this is right up your ally. If you don't wait a second before clicking off of this page.
While it has a dated formula I've seen used so many fucking times(and the cockblocks are unreal) it's still an entertaining show.
The chapters are pretty long and focus mainly on the main couple as they try and keep their relationship secret from(mostly) everybody as new characters are introduced and their relationship deepens. It has some comedy, and can be pretty funny.
The main&side characters
are pretty decent. Art is good and cute but I just think my standards are too low on that part since I really don't give a shit about art as long as it's not OPM webtoon level.
Overall good show,it still doesn't have a lot of chapters but the show is pretty fast paced and keeps you hooked as the plot thickens.To wrap this short review up this manga is worth reading.Some people might not like it but for me it's a very good manga.
Looking for some cute school romance packed with fanservice and cute girls? Look no further, because Kishuku is just the manga for you!
The story is nothing we haven't seen before: a forbidden romance, in which the two leaders of rivaling clans/dorms fall in love and must be careful to keep their relationship a secret. Cue misunderstandings, hijinks, and characters going to comedic lengths to hide their budding romance. There's nothing wrong with the story, but this is definitely not the manga's strong point.
I have no complaints about the art. It's cute and well-drawn. The backgrounds are gorgeous. Snippets of ecchi and some
frames are drawn just for the sake of fanservice, so there's good and bad parts about it.
Ah yes, the driving point of this manga. This manga is so jam-packed with cute girl characters that it almost feels like a harem manga. The male lead is a bumbling idiot who stands blindly for his beliefs and morals, and often ends up paying the price by getting beaten up by his own subordinates. The female lead is smol, cute, and pure-hearted. More characters include a super-kawaii second fem. lead, and a pervy glasses guy. There is not a single character you will not have seen in some harem/ shonen romance manga before, but you love them nonetheless.
There is literally nothing new or unique about this manga. Yet, despite this, you will be eager for each chapter release. It's a formula for success.
I'm trying to give a fair rating, and originality is an important factor in judging. But if you're okay with reading a manga full of the common tropes and story arcs, then give it a shot. You're bound to enjoy it.
What I found fun about this manga is that well it's cliche, but it's a good kind of cliche, and it does enough variation on the formula and characters to make it interesting.
The manga basically is... well Rome and Juliet at a highschool, told mainly from Inudzuka Romeo's POV but while the world's not that well developed, the characters are done quite well.
Juliet Percia and Inudzuka Romeo aren't just simply rehashes of Rome and Juliet. They don't just go head over heels over one another. The manga does it's time to develop their history, develop how they fall in love, but not too
long. They get the fact that they're interested in one another over with, which is very welcome. The story instead has focused on the two trying to against all odds, get to know each other better and have a normal relationship.
And despite the short number of chapters, the manga's so far actually avoided a lot of typical manga cliche traps despite the setup being cliche. It avoids the harem route, but also avoids the paragon route. There are many girls in Inudzuka's life, but while he's not 100% omg I can't even look at anybdy but Percia, he's devoted, but tempted. It's very human and good writing for a character.
It avoids Percia being a ridiculous tsundere. She is a bit tsundere, but it's an understandable shyness and awkwardness that comes from the fact that she and Inudzuka used to fight a lot.
It also avoids the "liar reveal everything goes terrible" trope. Inudzuka's not an idiot. Well, he is in some ways, but he has friends who don't do heel face turns once they find out.
All in all, the characters are good, the story is fun, a good manga.
