Sakurasaku Shoukougun (Sakurasaku Syndrome)

Sakurasaku Syndrome

Wakatake is a middle school student who is dedicated to achieving his dream of becoming a doctor as soon as possible. Hence he has no time to deal with things like friends or love, but rather spends his time studying, ignoring all interruptions. However one day Kagetora, a a delinquent girl that once Wakatake’s childhood friend and that he was once in love with, approaches Wakatake and asks him to help her study, because she wants to get into the same high school as her crush. Wakatake is immensely conflicted, in part because he is someone who has always ignored such matters in favor of working towards his dream, but also because he’s still in love with her, and thus wants to be with her, but at the same time doesn’t want to help her love with someone else. In the end, he decided to help her.


This manga is pretty sweet, but there’s nothing about it that stands out as unique. The main characters had some unique traits, but their romance itself still proceeded in a pretty standard fashion at a semi-decent level of quality. The side characters weren’t well developed and their stories were shallow, ultimately not going anywhere. The ending mostly proceeded exactly in the direction that you would expect it to, though while it didn’t feel rushed it still felt like it should have gone further than it did. The art was decent enough but not especially good.

A pretty generic romance manga at only a decent level of quality.
