Some very cool guys

by -

Funny, cute, and well drawn. It’s not anything world changing but it does make you turn the page wondering how much more goofy can these guys get.

Cool Dorks On Parade

by -

I had no idea what this was going to be, but it's surprisingly delightful.
Each vol is short and full color. It's a cross-section of guys who appear outwardly pretty cool but are actually always making minor understandable goofs, each of them handling it in different ways. When you accidentally push on a pull door, do you pretend you you meant to do that? Do you laugh at your own mistake? Do you pretend it didn't happen? Do you try and cover your flub with another action? These guys are all aware they're clumsy dorks sometimes, but they're each doing their best to play it cool. Sure, maybe they're not fooling anybody, but it's refreshing and healing to watch.

Full color manga and funny

by -

Not only is this book beautifully drawn and so nice to look at, it’s also one of the funniest books I’ve read. Every story has you on your toes just waiting for what’s going to happen next once the story develops more. Great read!

Surprisingly refreshing!

by -

Such a fun read! Despite the characters' embarrassments, each reflect on their silly blunders with a refreshing positivity and thoughtfulness (and in turn weren't judgemental of the mistakes of others) that made me want to try and be nicer to myself and those around me. By the end I couldn't help grinning! I also appreciate that each guy varies in age and place in life-- feels like there's something for everyone.
My one minor critique is the dialogue seeming a bit unnatural in places; for example, one of the characters is very clearly playing basketball, but the activity is only ever referred to as a "ball game tournament" several times within the duration of the setting. I'm not sure if this has to do with a more literal translation approach or something else but I did find it mildly distracting.
That said, I still enjoyed this immensely and would highly recommend it to people who want a charming, wholesome, fresh read about cute and handsome dudes doing dumb and relatable things! :)
