Summary: Toujou Souko attends a Catholic high school for girls and spends most of her days ditching class and trying to hook up with guys. She’s in a hurry to fall in love and often gets into trouble. Ueda-sensei is Souko’s homeroom teacher and all the girls idolize him on campus. He thinks Souko’s a good kid and is looking out for her best interests… Yet he never meant to encourage her to try and seduce him…
What begins as a passionate affair becomes a true and undying love… Ai Girl is an angsty love story loaded with melodrama. It should be noted that this series has adult themes and high smut content.
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 1/5
Opinion: The graphics are decent. Does have the older manga/josei feel to it.
So where do I begin. This is the biggest cluster fuck since Virgin Wars. Never before have I seen so many “But WAIT! There’s MORE!” moments in a manga. Usually the story will be good and then take one bad turn that you can forgive. But this was just outrageous. It was just terrible plot twist after plot twist.
The heroine is strong… ish… I guess? She fights back quite a bit but still makes stupid decisions. Her family is pretty much there for NO reason. Her sister is a plot device that makes no sense in the real world. The only okay person is the guy and I guess he is a saving grace. Joking, nothing could save this.
It’s supposed to be a drama but I have never laughed my ass off harder. Strongly recommend reading this if you love cheesy lines and unbelievable plot twists. You aren’t laughing with the story, you’re laughing at it because you cannot believe something this terrible exists. It’s a parody of itself.
I dare you to read it.
Final Rating: 1/5
