that has elements of rakugo and sports. Let’s just talk about it right away.

Author : Sakura Jun
Genre : Comedy, Slice of Life, Sports, School Life
Serialization : Shonen Sunday
Tells the story of Watanuki Chihiro who since childhood often changes schools, which indirectly makes it difficult to make friends. And this time, he had to transfer to Kamihoshi High. The first day of his new school he started with getting into trouble. She was with a man who later became her seat neighbor in class. His name is Yugami Yuuji, a person who is.. very, very strange.
Even though he was an Ace of the school’s baseball club, he couldn’t adapt to his teammates at all. In fact, he distanced himself from his classroom environment and was happier with his solitude. this is where Watanuki’s new life will begin. How will he get through his high school years with his eccentric bench neighbor?
Unique . That was my initial impression when I read this manga. Tells the daily life of people who are forced to be alone because of circumstances and people who actually want solitude. When else are we presented with the main character who wants everything on his own, even though he is an ace from the baseball club who incidentally requires solid teamwork.
But the solitude of a Yugami Yuji here is really able to build a story and channel various messages around how you should be social, how you should express yourself more openly to your environment.
The conflicts presented look trivial, but are packaged so nicely because of their eccentric solutions. Like how a person should refuse to take responsibility for something he didn’t do. How should we react to comrades who only take advantage of our existence. It’s all presented in this manga well.
Funny and Entertaining . Yes, this manga has its own funny side in delivering its comedy. how a Watanuki Chihiro has to deal with an eccentric loner like Yugami, the tugging of his veins that is exasperated by Yugami’s selfish but well-founded behavior, to how Yugami is treated as a rival that even Yugami himself forgets who that person is.
