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. read more
