A few hours before I completed the available chapters of ‘Principal’!
I must say that I had never seen this manga before, and to think that it is not even that recent…
I randomly found out about it on Myanimelist.com and decided to give it a try.
At the beginning I thought of dropping it: the story was not progressing and it just didn’t get me. For me it is important that a manga (or anything else actually) engages me from the very beginning, I don’t have enough patience to wait for it when it’s going too slowly.
Still, at the same time, I could feel that it would have been a waste to just drop it like that and something kept me going.
I did well. 🙂
I thought it was going to be the usual love triangle based story and I’m not into them at all. I can resist as long as they don’t become too messy or clichè,at that point I can’t stomach them, really…
Anyway, fortunately, this story turned out to be pretty different from the ones I had read so far. I’d say, the way the story went so far, it resembles more an asian drama’s plot. 🙂
The first impact I had with the drawings was the one I always get when I read old ones. Let’s be honest, they do look lacking. I still appreciate them, they are good and once you get over the first impression they become even better and they all look damn bishounens. ❤
Hotties are going to be hotties no matter what.
You just have to get over the first impact if you’re like me. 🙂
Too bad that the scans stopped right when the main couple seemed to start having hope… it’s always like that. *cries internally*
Recently I’m jumping from one series to the other, lol. I actually planned on
studying starting a completed manga so that I was sure I was going to complete the story, but then I found this and it looked like a waste to just leave it there. There aren’t many chapters left anyways…
I said that this was going to be the last, but here I am reading ‘360° Degrees Material’ all over again… well, at least this is a completed series! *wink* 🙂
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot.
Another peculiar thing about this manga is how sometimes it would turn super dark (?)
I think the mangaka wanted to convey the psychological load that certain events or even words can give to people. I really like this aspect because it gives you the feeling that it was actually well thought and not just the usual story.
Also, just like in ‘Koibana! Koiseyo Hanabi’, dogs are portrayed in an adorable way, and for me that doesn’t have a dog, it makes me one one so much.. >\\<
