Manga School, Part 2

Dear Students:

In my last post I talked about five unusual school situations you might have to deal with if you lived in a manga series. Now, here are five more! We might have to meet with our teachers and friends over the internet, but I’m sure we can all agree that as crazy as this is, these students have it crazier!

My Hero Academia

Most Dangerous

Decades ago, certain people began to develop weird powers, called quirks. Now, about 80% of the world’s population have some sort of quirk, whether that allows them to become invisible, breath fire, or fly. Izuku Midoriya has always wanted to be a hero, just like his idol All-Might, but he’s one of the quirkless 20%. However, that doesn’t stop him from striving for his dreams, and he joins the prestigious Hero Academy anyway. But, can a quirkless nobody still be a hero?

Again!!

Most Repeated

Kinichiro Imamura went through his entire high school career–all three years–without making any friends or lasting memories. But, when a fall down the stairs sends the teen back in time–all the way to his first day of school–it looks like Kinichiro just might have a golden opportunity to do things over, possibly with a happier ending.

School of Horns

Most Competitive

Magic is power, and the strength of one’s magic is shown in the size of one’s horns. Eru, a freshman at a school for magic, has embarrassingly small horns and weak powers that seems to make everyone else’s magic go awry. To make matters worse, his new roommate Rihito is not only an incredibly powerful magic user, but their meeting is hate at first sight! How is Rihito supposed to survive his first year of school??

Laid-Back Camp

Most Outdoorsy

Rin loves camping…all by herself. That’s why she always goes out in the middle of the winter, so that there are less people around to bother her. But, when this introvert inadvertently becomes friends with the bubbly Nadeshiko, her whole camping experience is turned on its head. Joined by Aki, Aoi, and Ena (the only members of the Outdoor Activities Club), Rin just might learn that camping can be more fun with classmates and friends.

Tomo-Chan is a Girl!

Least Likely Couple

Tomo and Jun have been friends since they were little kids, but now that they’re in high school, Tomo is realizing that she wants to be more than just friends. There’s only one problem–Jun has always treated Tomo as one of the guys! How can this lovesick tomboy win his heart if he doesn’t even see her as a girl??
