This week's Other Anime Discussion, we'll be viewing Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. It's a slice of life, shounen, comedy, school life manga. While I don't read comedy and slice of life, this manga gets my vote! For the more veteran manga readers, you probably recognize the art and its resemblance to Rave Master and Fairy Tail. Not big surprise. This mangaka (Yoshikawa Miki) is in fact Fairy Tail mangaka's assistant. Anyhow, the art is actually quite distinct once you start reading it. Without further ado, here is a teaser of what the manga is all about!
The story is basically about this group of students having fun in high school. There's no dramatic climax or epic battle with lots of angry grunts but the manga does have serious action time. Sometimes, the fight is comical. Sometimes, it's pure awesome. Brief background info: Adachi Hana was a former delinquent who turned a new leaf. She is now clumsy, silly Student President. Then we have yankee Shingawa Daichi who was once an elite student. Together with their other friends, they show us how much fun studying really is. It's great to inspire lazy students (ahem...me) to study and find enjoyment in it.
Their strategy to stay awake is scary. haha. I'm sure everyone experiences that many painful ordeal times as students. Studying last minute, straining your eyes open and cramming as much info as possible...*table flip* Painful indeed.
TROLOLOLOL I laughed. It's just so cute.
I told you it's cute and funny. Now the student council is playing an online game to persuade a 'hermit' student (who refuses to go to school and indulges in that game) to come back to school.
LOLOLOLOL yeah. They are hilariously horrible in that game. Nevertheless, they train hard... let's see how our favorite merchant Shingawa is upgrading...pffft!!!
I am soooo going around with bananas and say to random people "And I can sell bananas now!"
