For his ladylove is none other than his arch-enemy, Juliet Persia, leader of the dorms' West first-years! Is Inuzuka ready to risk it all to confess his feelings? And even if Persia somehow agrees to go out with them, how long can they keep a forbidden relationship under wraps?!
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.
Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet, or Boarding School Juliet, although was a rather enjoyable experience to read, does not fall into my category of an outstanding romantic comedy, but rather as your typical cliche romantic comedy story.
Similar to the original "Romeo and Juliet" story written by William Shakespeare, protagonists Persia and Inuzuka are the leaders of the rivaling House White Cats and House Black Dogs respectively. And exactly like the original story these two get together and become a secret couple, doing everything they can so no one but their most trusted ones know of their forbidden relationship.
Boarding School Juliet is similar to many other Japanese
romantic comedies with having two lover protagonists go through many trials and events while resulting in the strengthening of their bonds. There's not exactly anything special or remarkable about this story. That doesn't mean its boring; it still contains many scenes that can melt the readers heart and wish the protagonists for the best.
But like many Japanese romantic comedies, it lacks a story with depth. There's not much of an overall main theme or lesson being taught. And if there is, it's expressed very weakly and hardly noticeable. Boarding School Juliet is just another story that uses a cute romance story to hook the reader into continuing. While this does have a low risk, there's also a low reward on top of that.
I myself am an avid reader and personally enjoy the romantic comedy genre, considering it as one of my guilty pleasures. If you aren't looking for a strong story with great and well developed characters, then try out Boarding School Juliet. It's definitely a fun and heartwarming experience that is hard to regret spending time on. But if you are looking for the type of story just mentioned, then it is best just to skip this one for now.
