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.

That was another wonderful chapter. This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite series. One of the best rom-com/slice of life mangas i've ever had the pleasure of reading. Pleasantly free of the melodrama plaguing the genre and marked by a unique quirkyness i've yet to see elsewhere. Now to commit all my free time over the next week to the F5 button at Ciel Scans....

OMG -- the bus ride home, so freakin' cute!!! This is turning out to be one of my favorite active mangas -- thank you Ciel Scans!

maybe they're moving from arcades to home consoles now. man, it'd be good to see N64 and playstation 1 games

OMGGG GOO FOR HEEER!

Considering there are ~4 more volumes, I doubt the manga ends (it would be a pity if that happened). I agree that a timeskip is very probable but personally I would like to see the maincharacter do something to make Oono convince her parents to allow her to stay.

There are five volumes, it's still publishing, and there's going to be an anime adaptation, sooo

LOL! Guile's riding with them!

I would have liked to see more of their childhood but if there's a timeskip then that's pretty cool too.

Also, these kids have great taste in games.
 

Here comes the imminent

,ready yourselves.

Looks like it is either ending or we are getting a timeskip.  Probably the latter.

They play good titles in this chap too! and in the end, the feels... THE FUCKING FEELS!!

Argh!... right in the feels....

FIGHT FOR LOOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEEE!!!!!

Go, Haruo, go! It's time to become a man among gamers. Tough even if you'll manage to reach her home you'll probably discover that the princess is in another castle.

Escaping reality. Story of my life. Wish I had a cute mute to keep me company on my arcade jaunts back then.

I kinda found it funny that I came across this manga and this page specifically...

Spoiler

 

... just as I was replaying this game:

 

 

The game has characters from the games mentioned in the page (Shadowland, Genpei Touma Den, Wonder Momo, and Bravoman) along with both other old-school  and newer-school ones.

 

Test your gaming knowledge and see if you can name the characters seen in the video hehehe.

Well I'm glad I kept reading, it's pretty good.  But DAMN I hate the art style.  

 

I generally don't like manga where all of the characters look bad/evil/depressed all the time.

 

The newer chapters have turned out pretty good though, interested to see where this is going.

So they see a original street fighter arcade machine in a "Twilight zone arcade shop"? Now that's pretty appropiate!

For a second there, I almost thought that kid stepped into the Japanese branch of Flynn's arcade (A cookie to you if you understand the reference).  xD

 

Any more of this silliness will get you derezed by the MCP. ;)

Wow I love this manga, it'skinda sweet and love the 90's feeling XD

Adachi Mitsuru is a man.

Tis' another nice chapter. I feel rejoiced!

 

Come my friends! Let's enjoy more of this with a nice and sweet beer!

This girl kicks ass in video games and lolipops.  I like her.  xD

To paraphrase a movie quote....

 

"I came here to Kick ass in video games and lick Lolipops...And I'm all out of lolipops."

Thanks for all the Chapters!
