Aside from having one of the longest and hottest masturbation scenes that I’ve ever seen in a manga, I don’t have much to get excited about in this release. Don’t get me wrong, the sex scenes were graphic and all kinds of lovely. However, when I find myself skipping pages of plot to get to the smut, there’s something wrong.
My main issue is that the writing and the pacing are confusing. I had a hard time figuring out which character is which, what they were doing and, most importantly, why they were doing it. I don’t think that it was a translation issue. I think that part of the manga was crap to begin with.
There’s Chiga, who’s confused as to why his judo partner, Kokusai, is elected class president. Kokusai doesn’t seem to be popular–except for random stalkers and pervs on trains–or to have the qualities that would make a good class president. Even more surprising is that Kokusai picks Chiga as his running mate.
It’s obvious that Kokusai is unsuited to his position and that Chiga’s only role will be to keep Kokusai out of trouble. Of course, they’re going to end up in bed after this set up. It’s just a matter of convincing Chiga that he really wants what Kokusai has to offer.
I guess it’s not really a bad release; I just couldn’t find much about it that I really liked. Well, aside from that really hot masturbation scene.
