Changed the Rules for Manga Monday, since it seems all I get with the “Random” button is Yaoi and dead series.
The name of the game is “Manga Monday.” The rules? Hit the “Random” button on any Manga reader website until I find something that looks promising. I’ll mostly do posts on completed or ongoing series that are regularly updated. While I do not condone scanlations, please support the creator and licensing companies by purchasing the work where available.
This week’s manga is – Kamen Teacher
Serialized in 2006-07, another delinquent-reforming manga from Fujisawa Toru, author of the famous series, GTO – Great Teacher Onizuka.
Kyokuran is a public high school with 80% delinquents. Araki Gota and Kamen Teacher are new teachers that have been hired to solve the problems. Will they be able to properly give a lesson to these delinquents?
To be honest, I’ve already read all of this series. It took two things that I already had genuine interest in, “Kamen Rider” and “Delinquent-reforming series,” and put them together. While not so Kamen Rider-ish, the helmet was still badass-looking.
Anyways, just based off of the first chapter, here’s what I can tell you. This series starts out very typical of its genre. Energetic teacher is set up to teach a class of delinquents. It’s funny how the students are not flabbergasted at the fact that their teacher totally survived a punch out the window, falling 3 floors down. What brings most interest out of this is how different Araki and the Kamen (Masked) Teacher handle the students. Araki seems like he’ll get pushed around a lot, but the chapter’s last page of Kamen Teacher seems like he means serious business.
Definitely a series worth picking up, especially if you’re looking for something from the Deliquent-reforming genre.
