This week for Sensate Saturday I’ve got another Quick Review. It’s Blue Flag by KAITO!

Plot Synopsis:  Three students in their third and final year of high school meet during a time when they are worried about paths for their futures. Waiting for them are sweet, painful, and heartrending days.

Plot: The plot is so stereotypical that I really don’t find the series all that amazing. It’s not that much of a surprise that it’s relegated to the online publication of Jump.

Characters: Taichi is our main point of view character, while Touma and Kuze are our other two leads. Frankly I hate them all, Kuze is the stereotypical clumsy and shy girl, Touma is the energetic and outgoing extrovert that everyone loves and Taichi is the loner. It’s so cliched that I just can’t bring myself to read another chapter.

Art: The art is great, as you’d expect from a Shueisha publication, but it’s not enough to save this from getting put on my don’t bother to read list.

Overall: Skip this unless you are really, really desperate for a Slice of Life series to read.

For those who like: Slice of Life, School Life, Drama, Romance, Mediocrity.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.

Book Publishers: ,
