From the looks of the title, this manga is about a dude jacking off in the girls bathroom… Sure it is, if you are close-minded enough to believe what you see at first glance, but this manga is actually more than meets the eye. Onani Master Kurosawa is deep in emotion, filled with ego, coupled with betrayal and many other dramatic plot devices.
Here we are introduced to our protagonist, Kurosawa Kakeru, who is an asocial person. His“daily activity” is jacking off in the (mostly unused) girls bathroom. Not the typical kind of protagonist that is seen in manga, but it is what gives room for Kurosawa to mature. As a student he learns the hard way; he learns the true meaning of friendship, of betrayal, the feeling of being rejected by those in the same age group, and how to move forward without any regrets. Kurosawa truly becomes a person whom I can respect as he musters all of his courage to confess all the things he has done.
I have never felt so attached to a manga before, but this just has everything. The author seriously is a freaking genius! The way he portrays the characters and how they develop, it makes me realize that I, somehow, have a similar situation (not the jacking off part). This manga teaches you to treasure everyone around you. It tells you to muster your courage to confess, and to learn how to be a better person for the person you love. I laughed, I cried and I even got angry while reading this manga, and I am sure I am not the only person to experience all these feelings. I won’t go any further, just try reading it. With simplistic but appreciable art and a story with good foundation, I can seriously recommend this manga. And a bit of an advice: never judge the manga by its title.
