Perfect clumsy boy Takakura-kun

Manga published in book form, in magazine

ICHIJO Masahide / Saburic [Japan]


This manga tells the story of TAKAKURA Tak- eru, who is so clumsy that he struggles just to write words, put on his bag or even sit in a chair. Classmate WATANUKI Sachiko , a self- styled busybody, nds his clumsiness to be cool, even as she pokes fun at his clumsiness. This gag comedy on the theme of clumsiness depicts the strange relationship between these two, sometimes with exaggeration and some- times with charm.
