Kyoushi to Seito to (Teacher and Student) Review:
With a rating of 7.76, Teacher and Student is Fuuga's most highly rated work on MAL. The series was serialized in Comic Mujin and ran from Jan 7, 2005 to Sep 7, 2006.
Morisaki Mai, a 25 year old teacher gets evicted from her apartment because she wouldn't suck the landlord's willy. Well, that's usually what happens in these type of stories, but it turns out she just wasn't paying rent on time. Often when the start of an erotic manga is this, well, civilized, there's bound to be something abominable down the line. In this case, it was
incest, but let's pretend like that never happened. Mai could have easily moved in with her sister, but the distance was too far away from school, so she decided that the best thing to do was to move in with one of her students, a young man by the name of Nishimoto Daisuke, who just happened to live in a luxurious apartment all by himself; how convenient. Mai and Daisuke eventually fall in love with each other, but neither of them had the courage to express their feelings. One day Mai suddenly decided she wanted to go to the beach. Unfortunately, the water was too cold, so they couldn't go for a swim, but they promised to come back on Mai's next birthday. Daisuke confessed on their way home, but he didn't get the response he was hoping for. He wasn't really bothered by Mai's reaction or lack thereof, just being by her side was enough for him.
An unnamed vice principal would eventually get in the way of their relationship, ruining the couple's plan to be together on Mai's birthday. Will they keep their promise or will the vice principal succeed in bringing them apart? That's for me to know and for you to find out.
The writing was pretty solid. In fact, I don't think I've ever read an erotic manga with this level of quality. Many authors in this field have attempted to implement humor in their work, but very few succeed. Fuuga didn't succeed in making me fail No Nut November, but this manga was definitely funny. The characters were a lot of fun, especially Mai. Despite not getting any character development whatsoever she was still the driving force of this story. It's rare to find an erotic manga with even one likeable character, this series has several of them and that's an incredible achieve on its own. There are aspects of this series that aren't necessarily exceptional, but everything came together nicely.
Have you read this series? No? Then what are you waiting for, the second coming of Christ? For those who have already read the series, feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments below. Thanks for reading, peace.
