「二月の勝者」(“The winner in February”)
I don’t usually read manga, but I’ve just started reading「二月の勝者」(“The winner in February”) since I watched its TV drama in October. I like Yagira Yuya who plays the main character in the TV drama. The story is about 6th graders taking junior high-school entrance examination and the setting is at a cram school. There are various types of elementary school children, parents and teachers. Yagira Yuya is a charisma teacher.
Since I am a cram school teacher, I am really interested in this drama. The first TV episode was interesting, so I bought the manga. It was really useful for me to know about “chugaku juken” and the cram school business. The manga explains a lot of insider information about cram schools and educational issues at the family.
↑ I saw a full page advertisement on Nikkei newspaper on Oct 16.
I am citing a part of the advertisement here.
”A realistic portrayal of modern day junior high school entrance exams, and a look at the family and educational issues that emerge from these exams, as well as various other issues of modern society! This drama is not just about school entrance exams, but a life strategy drama set in a cram school for everyone.”
↑ You get a special pencil when you buy their manga at bookstores.
It feels like the cram school really exist, doesn’t it?
↑ You can read vol. 1 to 3 of the manga on Amazon for free until November 15th.
