Great Place High School - Student Council 1 - Great!!

Postby sun22 » Thu Jan 14, 2010 8:38 pm

I enjoyed this recent publication by Naduki Koujima, localized by June. And I'm not even a fan of this manga-ka. Unlike its "prequel" "Great Place High School", which was organized in an unusual comic-strip style, "GP High School-Student Council" is done in a much more linear and regular / traditional fashion, and overall much more romantic, sexy and emotional, IMO. Recommended to all those who read "Great Place High School", and even if you didn't like that one (it was just so-so to me), you might enjoy this one, if you like yaoi with some drama, and are OK with some fluffy moments and comedic relief. Also, it can be read as stand-alone, as it focuses on different characters, and all the pre-histories are explained.

The focus is on somewhat/slightly sado-masochistic couple of Rin and Eichi (president and vice-president of Student Council), and the funny part is that they are both so similar: possessive, unpredictable, violent, aggressive, and spoiled each in their own way. So, the "dominant/submissive" dynamics keeps on changing between them (however, in this book, there are no "reversibles", and the roles of uke and seme are set).

And let me add: there is absolutely NO censorship in this one that I can see (I compared to the original version), though it does feature fingers in all the *interesting places*, and "dripping bodily fluids" in many places, and though it doesn't have any obvious frontal nudity (by manga-ka's design), only glimpses there and there, it's still sexy. I really like that in this case you (DMP) chose the right work for whatever guidelines you decided to adhere for June, and correspondingly kept all the original artwork.

My praise to June for this, and I do hope that's a sign that June is trying to move away from censoring, as Chibi-Kami said elsewhere. ("Invisible Love", which was severely censored, was published in 2007, while this book - late 2009. I hope we see some really promising trend here!) I'm looking forward to volumes 2 and 3 of this series, and hope all the original artwork will be preserved there too!!! ( And if you're planning to censor further volumes, could you please let me know here, so I could decide re: buying or not with full disclosure? Thanks)

This series still hasn't ended in Japan, right? Volume 4 was published late last year and I noticed some sites listing it as the final volume but there was the "to be continued" sign on the last page of the book, which means there will be a volume 5.

Just got volume 2 (June edition). it's in a large size, same as volume 1, and unedited / uncensored artwork as far as I can tell. Looks great overall. Thank you! :D

I love this series a lot! It is the best by Naduki Koujima that I have read so far. It has a great story and a great cast of characters. I especially love Rin and Eiji. I just love the chemistry between the two. :oops:
