    Sakamoto desu ga? by SANO Nami



    Description: First-year high-school student Sakamoto isn't just cool, he's the
    coolest! Almost immediately after starting school, he began attracting
    everyone's attention. The girls love him, and most of the boys resent
    him. There's even a boy in the class who works as a model, but who is
    constantly upstaged by Sakamoto! No matter what tricks the other boys
    try to play on him, Sakamoto always manages to foil them with ease and
    grace. Though Sakamoto may seem cool and aloof, he helps others when
    asked, such as in the case of the boy in his class who was being
    constantly bullied. No matter what difficulties Sakamoto encounters, he
    moves through his high-school life with confidence and class!

    I wasn't sure about the first chapter, but if the second chapter sets the tone for the series, I think I will enjoy it. You can read it HERE.

    So chapter four is just released. I think this manga is pretty consistent in its humors and themes, but I'm not sure how this manga would be still entertaining after twenty chapters or so if the scope is only slice of life without no "actual" plot. Still, I'm still laughing when I read this, especially the "eyes through the body" part, it's so unreal hence it's very ludicrous.

    Just recently read this manga. A friend recommended it to me, the way he said it makes things so funny, I thought he was exaggerating, turns out he didn't. This is one strange series indeed. Funny and inviting because of how it's totally non-sense. But I agree with Doraku that without a clear plot purpose to reach, we'll be bored very soon. Publication seems slow so I guess maybe we won't be bored very soon. :P

    Yeah, Fellows! seems to vibe with me pretty well(though I think it is called Harta now). Otoyomegatari, Gisele Alain, Dekoboko Girlish, Ran to Haiiro no Sekia, Wolfsmund, Shirley Madison, and there are several more that I want to try but aren't translated(dying to try Rudolph Turkey).

    And Sakamoto desu ga? seems to be Fellows!/Harta's best seller by far. The first volume left the chart with nearly 700,000 copies sold. There must be something to it. I enjoyed the first few chapter, but I need a few more to really decide if I'm into this particular brand of humor.
