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.
Don't expect a really good review, this goes all to my opinions and experience about the manga and this is my first time making a review so yeah, Anyways the comedy is really funny, its so top notch that its going to overtake Konosuba in my opinion, ,the romance is good, you know the good ol classic cliche in every romance anime well they kinda have one but its kinda different because the plot is really amazing and lastly the plot, the plot is really good and i don't want to spoil anything but its kinda like nisekoi so yeah, The art is great it's
just normal not amazing or not ugly it's just normal, The Characters well they are pretty well developed once such event happens well... it does have a bit of drama i think?, Overall its 10/10
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.
My ideal romance manga(of the little that I have taken to actually finish) is simple. 2 characters and a whole bunch of unique cast of supports. Nisekoi was one of my favorites for a while as even though the plot was litterly one of the worst with a horrible MC and predictable ending, I still enjoyed it for the comedy and for what it was. Then came Juliet of Boarding School(Side note: What kind of title is that???).
The one-shot was alright, not bad, not good, but not much you actually can do when your limited to,well, a one-shot. Still i liked it. Then came
the first chapter. Then the next. By the time I was finished I had already come to chapter 16. I woke up and started reading till i caught up. Truth be told, this manga is like crack for me. Addictive and hard to put down even though you know its bad for you.
First off the story. If you've ever read Romeo and Juliet(or at least know the story) then this should prove to be familar enough. Some dude from japan goes to a borading school that also happens to house students from Europe of wherever. And know what? The two countries just happen to hate each other. But the dude and some girl from the other country like each other but can't be found out. Normally I'd say screw the plot cause we've all heard the secret lovers thing before but nope. The story kept itself refeshing enough after the one-shot that really made me enjoy it. A perfect mix of comedy and seriousness and points where I could actually root for the MC who actually wasn't a freakin dense as hell asshole. The only problem I ever had was that by the end of the chapter we know that the characters can't actually get together for the sake of being burned to the stake. Yet that wasn't the goal of the manga. The manga is to show the relationship between the 2 characters and honestly it was perfect.
Then the cast. I have a fond respect to an MC who actually gets his shit together and mans up. "Oh man when is he finnaly gonna confess his feelings?" Well the very first chapter to be exact. Thats all i need. Juliet is.... Well i can't say she's the best female lead Ive ever seen but the author does let her become a decent enough charcter witj plenty of "adorable(ew)" moments. Hazuki all the way, shame she dosen't even get a character page on this website. Honestly I could go on all day. Great cast of characters.
The art is great, no problems there. Well......except for the fanservice. Those kind of moments never really bother me as long as theres still some plot to salvage which thankfully this manga does faithfully. Still a shower scene, beach chapters, etc.....just......cmon author....
Honestly I really cannot wait for the next chapter to come. Juliet of the whatever has replaced Nisekoi and sits alongside Kaguya:Love is War and Horimiya as my 3 favorite romance manga. I'd reccomend the one-shot to test the waters whether you would actually want to read the manga or not, however keep in mind that the one shot does spoil one or two major plot points down the road but thats about it.
For a reccoemndation to read after I'd say go for Kaguya-sama Love is War as its comedy is on level and sometimes a lot more with Juliet. Both manga have become weekly recently so there is always more to read from here on out to the future onward.
