to make even aliens,
seem run of the mill.
The jokes in it were over the top. I think if I hadn't read so much manga and seen so much anime, I might have found this more humorous. But really, it just seemed like a repetition of so many gag types I've seen before and I didn't find all that funny.
This one is probably best for a younger audience.
But it was chosen in a trade. So off it goes to a new reader! ;)
Later: There are some cute bits here, but I admit I didn't warm to any of the many characters - not that one should expect depth-of-character in a manga like this! The appearance of the deer didn't go as I'd expected from the cover-art, but was amusing (and resulted in a prolonged, WWF-style battle between the deer and one of the faculty (I think)). Other bits include the hot-tempered girl who's easily frustrated and yells in page-filling fonts whenever this happens; the girl who is (possibly) a robot, (probably) at least partly cybernetic, and conflicted as to whether to be obvious or not. [When she's firing off the rocket-guns in her arms, that'd be the "obvious" bit - though it's never clear to me if the kids are really firing actual weapons or if it's meant as a mental "I'm so angry right now" thing.]
So... cute, and weird, and not sufficiently compelling that I'll seek out other volumes. But it's still good to have given it a try!
[This manga inspired a 2011 anime. There's an extensive TV Tropes page, too.]
