Kurashina Sensei’s Passion 1

Rating: ♦♦

I wasn’t that familiar with this artist, but, I was pretty impressed with the quality of the artwork.
Sadly, the story didn’t live up to the promise of the art. The only thing I found myself really enjoying was the lead characters pet cat, Matsumoto. I’m a sucker for cats in manga. Good artists always manage to capture the essence of cats, in all of their cranky, snobbish, silly glory.

It still doesn’t redeem this release, but it did inspire me to finish reading the release, just so I could see more of the cat.

New teacher Kurashina is assigned to teach Japanese History at the same school he graduated high school from. Given the fact that he still looks like a pre-pubescent teen, the students at his school have a hard time accepting him as being a teacher.

Kurashina gets roped into being the gopher for the Events Organization Committee, and roped into the Committee’s unusual requests and the lives of the members. To top things off, he’s constantly being rattled by the Student Chairman of the Committee, Asano.

I guess it’s cute, and it is well drawn, but I just can’t get into it. Now, if this artist did a manga just revolving around a cat, I would be first in line to buy it.
