Description: The year is 1991 and 6th grader Yaguchi Haruo only has video games to live for. He's not popular in school and he's neither handsome, funny, nice nor even friendly. The only thing he has going for him is that he is good at video games. One day at the local arcade, he plays Oono Akira, a fellow classmate but who's popular, smart, pretty and a rich girl that absolutely destroys him at Street Fighter II. Not only does he lose to her 30 times in a row, he can’t beat her at any game. Haruo can’t seem to shake Akira off as she follows him from arcade to arcade everyday after school and beats him every time. As weird as it sounds, the odd duo begins a strange bond and friendship.

This series is strangely endearing, with the unconventional art, nostalgic era of arcade games, and the bit awkward yet also sweet story about friendship and romance. Love it.

OH! Update seems promising! And I can't help but root for this girl~

Would be waiting for more awesome updates. :D

so does oono-san come back

"This is like making a mockery out of studying, altogether...

 

BUT THAT'S JUST MY WAY OF LIFE!"

 

 

I love this kid.

 

The Turbo Express looked awesome. I think it was the strongest handheld, maybe aside from the Lynx, until... the Nomad? Of course they were literally a portable TurboGrafx-16 and Genesis, respectively.

I really, seriously love this series. 

Oh man, that really hit the spot -- volume two is starting out strong! Our MC seem more self-confident (maybe even cooler?) than he was in volume one, plus the new girl seems like an intriguing stealth misfit. Meaning, outwardly she fits in with society and what it expects of her, but inside she is a misfit in her own life.

 

This is one of only a handful of mangas that gets me excited when I see a new chapter has gone up -- thanks Ciel Scans for keeping them coming!

One of the things I love about this comic - apart from how it hits you right in the feels like a pissed off Makunouchi Ippo - is how it traces the history of video games all the way from the early days of Street Fighter. Although the focus is on arcade games, it tracks the console world, too (and the mention of the Neo Geo console, an incredibly rare and little known machine, shows that the author knows his vg history).

 

Even without the story, any video game buff worthy of the name should read this for the name drops alone. Hell, they may as well put a Historical tag on this.

(EDIT: I will mark out like a prepubescent girl if they eventually cameo Daigo in this.)

i thank thee ciel scans for translating and n33t for bringing this here. also Rextor and no group for the first chapter

This manga is great. And funny too.

I can't wait for the other volumes to get translated.

AWW YEAH GURL

There's 5 vol. of this already, thanks for keeping the translation Ciel Scans ^^

dayyumm... i've been playing games for my whole life... never did that attract any girls to me.... T_T. i need to find it myself

is that cover art from when oono comes back?

 

Yeah.

What is with this kid? He's attracting all the good-looking ladies.

Ciel scan crew thanks for timely releases of hi score girl. This is the comic i look most forward to.

is that cover art from when oono comes back?

It's interesting that a Japanese comic would mark the changing era by mentioning the American president -- certainly we talk about "Clinton-era" here, but I didn't realize he had that kind of impact on the mental timeline of people in other countries.

 

It's pretty much the same for Europe actually. The media here makes a big deal out of the US president and his actions.

Hm oono will always be number 1. How many silent tsundares are there?:)

I actually like this new girl than the original one...

That was so adorable... but wow things are going to get awkward once Oono comes back.

Don't make me like another Rival. My heart's been broken so many times.

Sugar Rush!

Oh my , it's so sweet ...

 

I hope we won't wait that long for next chap ... T.T
