16th Manga Division Jury Selections
Danshi Kokosei no Nichijyo (Daily Lives of High School Boys)
YAMAUCHI Yasunobu [Japan]
You won’t find any white-knuckle scenes of school-club activities or charming romantic episodes here. Instead, you’ll learn about the real life of male high-school students. While plenty of manga deal with the languid day-to-day activities of high-school girls, this work attempts to tackle the decidedly less pretty subject of boys’ lives. The shortformat, one-act gag manga, which uses a different main character in each episode, exhibits an impressive range perfectly suited to a web-based publication.
