Description: Yuiga Nariyuki works hard every day to obtain a full-college scholarship from 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.

Hmmm? That teacher... that expression and bluntness... Chizuru?!

bra under pajamas?! author, are you nuts???

I, in contrast, was more like what people expect these geniuses to be. I was the best in my city at math and science (but also history, because that was just memorization... and spelling back in elementary school... basically every academic subject except "writing"), but because I was able to consistently compete with even smarter people on the state level (well, I was the best in my state at programming in particular, but I had national competitions for that), I never got bored and was able to just stay in love with my specialties. And thanks to my choice of school (MIT), I never stopped having fun challenges in college, either!

 

Frankly the reason your situation seems bizarre is because there's no money in the humanities.... "Following your passion for humanities" is the kind of thing that turns high schoolers into low-paid journalists. I would expect a 4th-year college student to be a bit more... realistic?

 

Nevertheless, this is an entertaining series.

 

Edit: Oh, right, the actual reason I popped into the comments was to note that "20% off your test score" when you have a fever _confirmed directly by the school_ is completely insane and although I knew that Japanese schools were harsh, I had no idea they were _that_ harsh. Directly incentivizing people to go to school with a contagious disease is batshit crazy.

Oh god, don't write all that just to repeat cliche STEM talking points. 

Well, maybe she put one on because there was a guy in her house now? I know I usually go put on a bra if my roommate's boyfriend is over. Though I'm not sure I'd bother if I was that sick though. At least, not such a fancy frilly bra... maybe a sports bra.

It's possible, but considering that Nariyuki entered on her backwashing, there was a chance of something similar happening, if they would have went to the kitchen and suddenly got back, asking for something, while she put the bra on. What contradicts the scene is the entering. She went under the blanket, because she was in her pajamas and her hair was messy. She covered herself with the blanket, so putting on a bra was unnecessary at that point. She stayed under the blanket, fell asleep and later we saw her in her bra, when she got up, so she really did come out of the blanket to put that on, while they were in the kitchen.

I know it's trivial talking about this, but it just proves that it was an unnecessary fanservice scene that was made solely because of the sake of fanservice.

In ten years, when they're working and they have a big project they have to finish by a given date, chances are the customer won't care if they have a cold or not, they have a schedule to keep (time overruns are generally on the company's dime); so these kinds of rules in a high-school environment (remember, this is past the end of compulsory education in Japan) isn't too terrible.

The customer, as well as the investors, sure will care if diseased workers are pressured to work, and potentially compromise the entire project. I also doubt anyone wants to learn that a company has no ability to manage their workers in such a way, that they force them to work even when they cannot, instead of finding alternative solutions.
From the western point of view, telling someone: "Well, if you didn't want to get a penalty, you should've thought of that BEFORE you got sick!" is absolutely insane from an educational institution. That much, I can agree with Codetaku.

I seriously doubt that a teenage girl is bothered to put on a bra under her pajamas, when she sweats so much due to a fever. And I also doubt that the pajamas can get that transparent from sweat, but oh well...
Not a well thought out fanservice scene overall. Uruka even washed Fumino's back and we didn't see a bra lying on the bed close to them, so she put on one, for whatever reason, when they went to the kitchen.

Face it, you just wanted to see her without a bra.

Who cares what that bitch tutor is thinking, or if she's not acknowledging yuiga. At the end of the day, Yuiga's the one producing results

BEST WAIFU! <3

Next week Fumino takes the test half-dazed from her cold and also gets a decent score by pure chance. Crisis averted, plot didn't budge.

 

Sigh.

 

Surprisingly, she didn't, eh? You're too much of a pessimist.

Just because you're good at something doesn't mean you like it.  I know very well how important money is but a well paying job isn't worth it if you're miserable everyday because of how much you hate your job.

Okay there's the face reveal. She's gotta be tutored in tutoring, she's too cute to not be in the harem.

1- Math girl still best girl!

2- Lewd Sporty is funny/cute :v

3- I prefer Literature Girl better with the Death Flag hairdo

Lewd_but_I_approve.jpg

well, the dessert is "black forest"

That pointlessly good-looking tutor side character should stop pushing her views on other people. I know she is supposed to be the device that drives the plot along but that doesn't mean I can't dislike her on principle.

Has the editor writing this? because, holy fuck with this brown girl out of nowhere.

I think it's justifiable. Taking care of your health is part of your duties as a human being.

 

Then again, not everything is under your control so I guess 20% is overkill.

Ch. 9 - Best chapter as of now cos all mah waifus are there.

I... honestly have more to relate with this manga than i would care to admit. I was one of those kids who was considered extremely smart and had alot of expectations towards science and math. But i never once loved it and moved on to writing and humanities.. I just which i was like them and figured it out in high school and not my fourth year in college...

Hello guys. Just wanted to add my piece here.

Anyway. We have no enough information on the actual content of Rizu's answer on the exam.
What do we know is that:
-1st half -> was expected by Nariyuki
-2nd half -> surprise questions

-Then we also have the information that Rizu memorized the expected 1st half. Nariyuki just added the cross-reading technique for her to use as reference next time.

-There is no information of the answers she got randomly/from cross-reading was shown
-It was not stated that her random answers were correct

 

With these, I think we can safely say that her score would be around average purely from the 1st half. Then adding some vague number of the answers she got on the cross-reading technique. I say it's quite reasonable for her to achieve the score.

Did she improve?
Yes, but only by the cross-reading technique, she just brute force'd her way into the 1st half

Did she got the score purely by luck?
I don't think so, she did MEMORIZE the expected 1st half

EDIT: Fine details/grammar
