(1 customer review)

Masahiro Setagawa doesn’t believe in heroes, but wishes he could: he’s found himself trapped in a gang of small-time street bullies, and with no prospects for a real future. But when high school teacher (and scourge of the streets) Kousuke Ohshiba comes to his rescue, he finds he may start believing after all … in heroes, and in his budding feelings, too.

    I really enjoyed this one. It has some typical tropes, like teacher/ student, and bully/crybaby. But it was put together really well. Setagawa is a delinquent with a heart of gold, not a fighter, but more of a pushover. He loves his friends to pieces, and even plays a care giver role for them. Then we have Kousuke, Setagawa’s best friend’s older brother who is now a teacher at their high school. Kousuke in his youth, went around pounding the snot out of gangs, in the hopes of getting them on the straight and narrow. Setagawa and Kousuke’s paths cross after Kousuke demolishes Setagawa’s gang and becomes friends with Kensuke, Kousuke’s little brother.

    Their original dynamic is that of an underling to a leader, but as time progressed, Kousuke falls for Setagawa, who is completely clueless to his own feelings towards Kousuke. Of course, the smart teacher Kousuke has to help the situation along by being a complete idiot by NOT communicating well.

    All in all, it’s hilarious. I really enjoyed the storyline and interaction between all the characters. The author put so much story and emotions into the pages, there was no time to get bored.
