Description: Yuiga Nariyuki works hard every day to obtain a full-college scholarship by his High School to support his poor family. His headmaster promises that he'll get it if he fulfills a small condition. He has to tutor two resident female geniuses, Furuhashi Fumino (Literature-genius) and her friend Ogata Rizu (Science-genius), so that they can get into their dream-college. The catch is that Fumino wants to major in Science and Rizu wants to major in Literature despite them failing constantly in those subjects.

All the characters are really likable, the 2 heroines arent as annoying as i thought and MC is level-headed, has his own goals

 

also i can relate to this a bit as someone who was shit at math but was good at writing bullshit in literature lol (way back in school ofc)


On an unrelated note, I think the MC is going about teaching them in the completely wrong way (for a manga). Rather than just explaining how to do things and what they're doing wrong, he should try to think about the subject from the opposite pov.

 

Teach sciences/math so that lit girl can approach them like a story. "Sin X happens because cosine Y hurt its feelings so it split into tan", "In this formula X is best friends with N, so it likes to Y", or something. For the other girl, teach the literature like science -- analyze the text and identify patterns of behavior, etc. (Tbh, psychology does involve a lot of statistics in order to support theories so she's not quite as out of her depth as the literature girl, though I guess in order to get into a humanities program she has to pass literature/Japanese classes.) I don't think these teaching methods work irl, but it's a manga lol.

 

I'm sure we will be getting there, well one would think that is what will happen anyway.

This is just how the word genius is used in Japan. Get used to it, it's the correct translation.

I think you misunderstood the point of my comment. I don't have a problem with the translation or usage of words in the story. I was merely making what I thought was a humorous, lighthearted, and legitimate observation about the characters.

I'm not sure "genius" is the right word for the two heroines. The first word /phrase that sprang to mind for me was (idiot) savant. Nitpicking aside, dis kawaii af, MC seems promising, and shenanigans seem likely to ensue; so I press follow.

I'm guessing they are so terrible in their other subject(s) that getting into college at all is in danger for them? Now I know in the US, a true genius in a field can be stupid in other fields and still get into a college that specializes in the field they excel at, but that doesn't apply here I suppose since they want to go to the "opposite" school. So it's like an Artist wanting to get into MIT or an Engineer wanting to go to Juilliard, with no respective skills to get them in.

 

Now what should be able to happen is leveraging their genius to get around the normal admission requirements for a more rounded college and then study what they want (also).

 

In other mangas I've read, generally they can get "special recommendations" or something from their high school which can get them into college, so I don't think they'll have issues getting into college in general. I agree with you though, they should use their "genius" status to go to a non-specialized school/a school that has a good program in both that probably wouldn't care if they double major.

 

I mean, realistically, they shouldn't be aiming for places like Juilliard or MIT (though to be fair, MIT does have an arts/humanities program lul) since they're horrible at their subjects and would only struggle. Of course, since this is a manga we know they'll somehow get into the #1 school in their fields lol.

So in Japan can you get full marks in Math without showing your work? That's not how it works in the Western World afaik. 

In my high school we could not write the process, but only the FIRST, this was because "if you can do it in your mind, then you can solve it fast!" and that was to avoid cheating, cuz if you gave in your exam without any process and you weren't in the first places to give it, then it could be that you just copied from another student. 

I'll always root for the glasses girl as always mmm...~!

I really hate that shit of showing your work, such a waste of time. If someone can do it in their heads, let them do it in their heads for christ sake.

I hate it too but it is important to teacher on how well you understand the topic. Its like you explaining to teacher how do you get the answer.

I liked how some of my teachers used showing your work as a way to give partial credit. If they could see you were on the right track they would give some points, depending on how far you got in solving the problem. That's why they encouraged showing work, but didn't demand it.

Hmmm it has potential

Hmm knowing their motivations doesn't really convince me they shouldn't go into the fields they're good at. The literature girl is particularly unconvincing for me. She want to find her mother's star? How does she expect to accomplish that?? Theres no science involved in that and it sounds like something you can accomplish with a telescope in your backyard as a hobby or club. Working in astronomy would be very physics-heavy and if she can't even handle algebra without getting sleepy, why devote herself to something that's sure to bore her?

At least with the science girl, I can understand that she wants to go into psychology because she's genuinely interested in finding out more about how people interact/feel.

But maybe someone can enlighten me - Do Japanese colleges not allow double majors? Can they not just get a second major in their desired programs, since clearly the other stuff is effortless and they won't even need to spend much time on it.

So... generic preachy love triangle romcom?

 

Blargh

Hawawa girl is so cute

I bet nii-san looks super cool when he has to take off his glasses and be in a street fight for no reason at all.

After reading the description you have to wonder why the girls just don't tutor the other in their strongest field, but then there wouldn't be much of a manga would there?

 

As one who is really good in math and since although not e genius I can realate to their problems in explaining. For a genius the diffrent steps you have to take in order to solve the problem are so obvious that you do them subconsciously. I for example often couldn't even understand what the other didn't understand or why he would not understand  my short explanation. Nowadays I improved on that matter :D.

It's answered in chapter 1.  In chapter 2 is an actual demonstration of why it's not possible

It is the same manga that one, ph_ntom. I read it on Jaimini's site and it's a good laugh. Don't see the romance part of this manga yet.

the girl drawing remind me mc of koi da no ai da no

isn't this the same manga? http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/boku-tachi-wa-benkyou-ga-dekinai-r20721

Yes, is the same manga.

His problems are pretty much non-problems other than him being such a spaz that he can't sit next to girls.
Nice story and art. Follow!
