A good story ruined by explicit depiction of underage girls
Let me first say some good things about this Manga series. Masakazu Katsura has mastered the trope of the teenage high school crush story. I’’s is uncanny in how it reflects the common male going through adolescence. From the private fantasies to the awkward insecurity Itchitaka exudes around the girl he fancies, I’’s will likely prove quite the walk down memory lane for male readers. Despite what you see in the first few pages, this story isn’t all about fan service. There is a great deal of character development to be found. I”s is about a young man figuring out how to connect with a girl he wants to be with. On the one hand he is like most young men: seeking her as a sexual object and at the same time, yearns to have a meaningful relationship with her. How he fumbles through it all will make you laugh, cringe, and probably have you eagerly reaching for Volume 2 to see the next part of the story.
Having said that, as much as I enjoyed reading the story in my younger days, I can’t recommend this manga. There is a pervasive, inappropriate depiction of young women here. In my opinion the imagery descends to the level of soft-core porn and that’s really too bad considering how heartwarming and honest the story is. My 2 cents.
