By: Nakayama Atsushi
Serialized In: Weekly Young Jump
Negizawa Kamo once tearfully promised his weak childhood friend Kagyu Jubei that he would grow up to be a teacher who would not stand for bullying. Several years later, as a teacher, he meets Kagyu once more under...strange circumstances to say the least.
While Negizawa was training to become a great teacher, Kagyu (who, like most women, fell for Negizawa) polished her fists so that she could protect him when they met again.
Hilarity ensues as Negizawa strives to become the teacher he once dreamed of being and Kagyu protects his chastity from the numerous women who lust after his sweet behind.
I had to buy volume 1 of the manga to read it and its so cool.

Hm. Well, if you're willing to give me raws, I could try to translate it. I love Nakayama, and am always willing to at least give his works a shot.
I'm willing to provide raws if anyone's interested in scanlating
talk to Bomber D Rufi
I just started this series. I love the art style. It's pretty unique. It's also funny so far. And I think there is some battle manga potential. I mean, Kagyu's martial arts style is like a mix between Ripple and Spin, so it would be a waste not to have some cool fights, right?
Finally this manga has been regularly scanlated. I didn't know what to expect when I started, and from what I've been reading so far, it has been a pleasant surprise. I agree the art style is distinguishable, especially when Kagyu's rivals turn into "evils" but maybe that's should be expected since this manga is serialized in Seinen magazine, after all. I'm wondering what kind of plot development we would see in the future, hopefully this love rival things eventually will lead into deeper plot.
Seriously the reason why I even got into this was the art. I read (and translated some of) Nakayama's other work in Shounen Sunday....Traumeister, and maybe once I get a bit of free time I'll finish translating it. The guy oozes style and dynamic. I'd go as far as saying that he has one of the most unique art style's in the industry...it can go from ultra cute to disturbing in a panel, and I love that Nakayama can do that to even his prettiest characters.
But yes. Stay tuned. Nejimaki becomes even more awesome as time goes by and I'm happy people are reading it. Support the effort by giving the scantlators a hand, as they'd like to release faster but lack the staff to do so.
I found this cool cover of Young Jump SEED that features Nejimaki Kagyu on it:
You can check it out here. It seems to be a 'Nejimaki Kagyuu' chapter zero, so I assume it'll take place before the series began. Either way I hope it'll be included in a tank sometime since I can't see myself buying that mag for just that chapter.
Post 1,600! Now if only posts in the forum were indicative of translations posted.

Yup, that's Kagyuu.
She seems to only get cuter as the manga continues....and more powerful too. Maaaan if only this weren't a seinen, I'd probably be caught up. U_U

I'm actually getting kind of bored. Does it get more plot-centric later? This "evil student council" thing seems overused and isn't keeping my attention very well.
I new Shino would turn out to be a bad guy. Too bad, I kind of liked the beginning of the chapter where she helped Kamo remember the kind of teacher he wanted to become.
Nah, I'll just wait and read as it comes out. I just wanted to know what I was in store for. Now that I know the story will eventually come together, I'll just be patient. Thanks.
