A girl goes to school.
This is one of my favorite manga ever. Every chapter leaves me rolling on the floor in tears. Not quite Grand Blue levels but still a masterpiece.
Sadly, the anime adaptation was a huge disappointment. It’s still funny, but that’s based entirely on the underlying source material, and the anime is a huge step down. Compare this scene in the two adaptations:
I think we can all agree which one’s better. And the whole manga is like that. It has this epic drawing style which really makes the manga what it is. And the anime is utterly lacking that.
Same with the voice acting. I don’t think Chio’s voice suits her at all.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s still hilarious. But if you have to choose one, read the manga instead.
