Yes, once upon a time, Mafuyu Kurosaki
was the take-charge, hard-hitting leader (“bancho”) of a high school gang in Saitama. However, hoping to reform her daughter of her delinquent ways, Mafuyu's mother sent her daughter to Midorigaoka Academy
, an isolated school far off in the country. There, Mafuyu reunited with Takaomi Saeki
, the childhood friend who set her on the path of delinquency. Now, Saeki is Mafuyu’s homeroom teacher.
As Oresama Teacher, Vol. 21
(Chapters 117 to 122) opens, Kurosaki chaperons a date between Sakurada
and a boy who mistakenly thinks that Sakurada is a boy?! Now, Kurosaki must find some boy clothes because she has to pretend that she is Sakurada's boyfriend! Soon, a date becomes a love triangle and then, a challenge of teen male prowess! Then, someone else has assumed Kurosaki's secret identity, Super Bun
, and they are raising havoc at Midorigaoka. However, Kurosaki discovers that confronting her doppelganger is quite difficult.
I have previously admitted that I have mixed feelings about the Oresama Teacher
manga. The series is inconsistent, but at times can be a fun read. Sometimes, I wonder if series creator, Izumi Tsubaki
, is still feeling her way around her creation, even after 120+ chapters.
Oresama Teacher Volume 21
exemplifies that inconsistency. The cross-dressing / date / fight-over-me story line is kinda okay. The impostor Super Bun, however, is quite a read. I have to admit that I'm ready for Vol. 22 to read more of this story arc as it has the making of being an exceptional tale.
I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:
Fans of offbeat high school shojo manga will want to try the Shojo Beat title, Oresama Teacher
