Manga Review: Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun by Izumi Tsubaki

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When I first opened the book, I didn’t realize I was reading a collection of 4-koma. It gave me some initial whip-lash. I did proceed to enjoy many of the gags, though I always find translations of comedy extremely awkward. There are some “explanations” as to what the jokes mean — but as Dilbert says, “It’s not funny if you have to explain it”. It was ok. I might enjoy it better on a re-read.
