Swot (Manga) add (All reviews)
Rampant (All reviews)
This is a manga that is nothing but a weak premise combined with typical gags, typical character, bland art out of the Bleach school of art, and the typical blandest possible boring setting (high school of delinquents). It is not like there are no good high school delinquent manga, but they have to provide some unique flair, some unique jokes, some unique premise (Angel Densetsu, Beelzebub, et cetera...). This one just offers up everything you have ever seen repackaged to be even blander.

The art consists of lots of sharp hair, hashes to simulate action and avoid having to draw anything in most panel outside the character, and the

The plot centers around a guy who is smart, nearly invincibly strong, and has no common sense. Also "tsundere" I guess. These aspects are talked about or demonstrated in 90% of panels.

The other characters so far are a whiny wimp who idolizes him nauseatingly, a "sexy" female, and an apparently about to be added to the cast swordsman who "only seeks the strongest fights." Yawnnnnnnn.

Anyway, this is a terrible addition to Shounen Jump. It is Katekyo Hitman Reborn without the superpowers. It is a gimmick WITHOUT any actual gimmicks. Boringgggg.
