Description: A young man, named Kang Chiu, arrives by bus in the middle of nowhere at the location of his new school and the hears the bus driver call out "Gekuji Town. Our condolences." He quickly learns why when he discovers that he has enrolled himself in the worst possible school, one full of martial artists of immense power and questionable sanity.
My thoughts: Martial arts insanity at it's best. It's basically a spoof of the over-the-top martial arts series. Lampooning things by going so far into the absurd that there is actually a technique called "Budda Nipples" and several teachers hilarious impersonations of martial arts movie icons.
Though the tone is distinctly ridiculous the art is actually surprisingly high quality, often making the stupidest of martial arts moves look genuinely impressive; which makes it all the funnier.
I'd recommend this series to anybody looking for a laugh but especially those who like either martial arts series or kung-fu movies.
Where to Find it: Among other places, you can read it here.
I've been reading this for a while now, and I've even been reading the raw's weekly. It's a shame the EG scanlator hasn't done anything with the series in such a long time.
The only thing I don't like about this series is that drooling thing. What is up with that? I mean, first Trance 1.5 and now this. What is so appealing to them about using that as a feature of a main character. It just seems weird that I've seen that twice in webcomics and have never ever seen it anywhere else.
The raws are so far ahead of the scans, so I'll comment on the scans.
Chp 21 - What was "exactly as planned?" Also, I wonder if those alrm clocks are standard issue.
the raws are REALLY ahead i wonder why the scanns are so slow. things moved from more joke less fight to more fight less joke it seemd
The scans of this series are going again!
In the last 4 days we have 3 new chapters! You can check the scanner's site.
