I got talked into translating a chapter of this series for a group of friends, so I decided tonight that I'd read the rest. It's such a joke of a series. I don't think the mangaka has any truly good manga at this time, but at least he shows potential in his later series. It's pretty funny and sad to see what sort of series he used to do.
If you're looking for a manga that's "so bad it's good," and you can make fun of it with your friends, this is definitely one of those. Everything about it, up to the end, is just so
poorly written and thought out. The end is meant to tie up everything nicely, so that's especially contrived. If you're a fan of the mangaka so you want to read his early works... don't.
