Goodbye, Bokutachi wa Benkyou gaDekinai

April 12th, 2017

That day, I was browsing the r/manga subreddit in tìm kiếm for a series khổng lồ read. My fandom for Japanese content was still fresh at that time. Not even half a year had passed since I completed the na-ru-to anime in its entirety along with various others. However, I eventually grew tired to my proliferating consumption of shows.

I needed a change of pace, so I looked to lớn manga as the next focus of attention. Manga was just as big as anime in terms of popularity. There was a chance I could find something interesting to lớn me like how it happened with anime due its seemingly infinite library.

I already had seen my nói qua of action, drama, & sports shows, what with the aforementioned nin-ja show, Yahari Ore no Seishun wa Machigatteiru (OreGairu), và Ace of Diamond. For my next series, I wanted to tone down the narrative intensity. As such, I looked khổng lồ the romance & comedy genres as my emphasis.

Nisekoi was a candidate that I initially advocated for, but I found out that it ended just months beforehand. Kimi no Todoke was another suggestion, but since there was a lack of released English translated scans after the anime adaptation, I decided not lớn pursue it. Re:Zero could’ve worked for me, but that was a light novel series. I’d rather read comics than lines of text. I would eventually read light novels later down the line, but for now, I didn’t consider it.

" data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" src="" alt="" class="wp-image-2017" srcset=" 1024w, 150w, 300w, 768w, 1456w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" />Opening màu sắc spread page from Chapter 1
On the eleventh hour of searching, I found one series that was coincidentally starting out its serialization. It was a thắm thiết comedy which was based on the difficulties of studying high school senior students và the subsequent connotation of love some of the students have for their tutor. That series was called “Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai”.

The tenth chapter of the series was released by the time I discovered the series on that day. The story, though new in its existence, contained an interesting premise (Nariyuki Yuiga, the protagonist, must tutor his students in their preferred subjects so they can enter the university of their choice), but its plot held an unsure future in that regard.

Readers weren’t sure if the plot could last for longer than 20 or so chapters. Romance is a tricky genre to lớn tackle since its stories always conclude with the main couple falling in love after numerous shenanigans between them which prolonged their confessions. If BokuBen weren’t careful about its story’s progression, it could fall in danger of dragging itself for too long, making it stale và displeasing for fans.

Still, I felt there was a clear chance for me lớn grow with a new story like BokuBen, so I gave it a try. I was beginning to lớn read manga, và BokuBen was beginning khổng lồ exist. It was a perfect match of inexperience.

Thus, after finishing Chapter 10, I went khổng lồ Chapter 1 và read the whole story in less than an hour.

Those damned geniuses. This was my favorite part from BokuBen’s first chapter. (From Page 5 of Chapter 1)(From Page 6 of Chapter 1)

December 31st, 2018

That was the date when I published “Finding Strength From Your Own Incapabilities”. Never did I think that I would feel compelled to lớn write about a manga series such as the one I did on that day. I knew I had a knack for writing about the things I loved, but the possibility of writing about anime—much less manga–was asinine khổng lồ consider.

Reddit links here.

I didn’t know how to write about manga. There wasn’t a guidebook that magically popped out of nowhere and showed me how lớn make a Japanese nội dung op-ed. I just interpreted that the main idea coalesced with every arc of the story, wrote my thoughts on the matter, presented multiple sources from the story to lớn prove it in chronological order, hinted at how it impacted me personally, revised và revised again, & that was it. “Finding Strength” was the result of a multiple-month project that came from the fiery passion I held for BokuBen. Nobody had done something for the series, so I whipped up a piece to fill hóa trang for the vacancy.

Hands down one of the funniest bits in the manga. I died laughing so much after reading it for the first time. (From Page 4 of Chapter 59)(From Page 5 of Chapter 59)

Even so, since “Finding Strength” was the first manga review piece I did, I was worried that my presupposed naivety of writing would turn people off from reading. Và yet, when I posted it for the interwebs, everyone that read my post loved it. In the BokuBen subreddit, r/WeCantStudy, my work was gilded twice, becoming the first post ever lớn receive awards in the forum’s history. I expected people lớn snide on my work, but they commented to lớn commend me instead.

After digesting the audience’s positive response, I became staunchly motivated lớn continue writing more about manga. The moment I decided lớn write about that subject, I felt as if I found a new calling. Though I was burdened by college classes at the time of posting “Finding Strength”, I was already inching to write my next piece on the series or any other outside of BokuBen.

The series didn’t play a role in just my writing. It altered my affinity for manga khổng lồ such a high degree that it prompted me to purchase a physical copy of a volume, which was something I never did before. I only used my money for the bare necessities such as food, repairs, và clothes. I was the paragon of thriftiness, but splurging $15 on volume 1 of BokuBen didn’t concern me. It was bigger issue for me lớn not buy it and fail to contribute to lớn the series’ growth.

One year after “Finding Strength,” I wrote “They Didn’t Learn: Ending Fans’ Hopes in Under Five Minutes”, which was about the controversial ending of the anime’s adapation. Looking back at the way I wrote it, I can now say that I felt embarrassed of the nội dung I wrote since that happened on a whim of sheer anger và outrage in response khổng lồ the finale.

Reddit links here.

I hoped for the anime to continue for a third season at the bare minimum, but that was denied by the direction of the powers that be, preferring instead to leave all the potential revenue to the source material. I was convinced that BokuBen could continue to lớn raise its profile by the anime. Publish more music, promote “Study”, the musical group that featured the show’s voice actresses which was crafted for the FUCKING PROMOTION of the show, build on the animation quality. But nope. Needless to lớn say, I’m still salty about the finale. FUCK.

I’m grateful to BokuBen for providing me the spark of reverence for myself khổng lồ which I could use to lớn prop others who are struggling with their difficulties. I learned not khổng lồ deride them và minimize their worth but respect them with the belief that they’ll improve & grow.

BokuBen gave me the incentive of writing about anime & manga in my blog. The closest I came to lớn doing so was when I did a short reflection on Episode 13 of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso in mid-2017. From there, I’ve been full guns blazing with my writing. That much has been clear with Go-toubun no Hanayome, OreGairu, Chainsaw Man, and Kanojo Okarishimasu.

Though those series holds greater popularity than BokuBen had generated in its duration, I still view it as suffice to say the latter is ranked as my favorite series ever. I’m not kidding when I profess that BokuBen was the genesis for my retrospective writing. Had it not been for BokuBen, I would not have been able khổng lồ convert an unknown liability into my chief subject.

Though the series has ended after more than three years of serialization, I’m sure that its theme will stay with me long after it has come lớn pass in relevance. It was the first manga series that I closely bonded with for weeks on end & lived vicariously through—save for the romance aspect. Still, that shit was so xinh tươi to see as a fan.

(From Chapter 159)

" data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" src="" alt="" data-id="2038" class="wp-image-2038" srcset=" 705w, 103w, 206w, 768w, 850w" sizes="(max-width: 705px) 100vw, 705px" />MOAR OGATA X NARIYUKI BECAUSE I SAID SO(From Chapter 159)(From Chapter 159)

" data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" src="" alt="" data-id="2039" class="wp-image-2039" srcset=" 705w, 103w, 206w, 768w, 850w" sizes="(max-width: 705px) 100vw, 705px" />MOOOOOOOOOARRRRR OGATA X NARIYUKI(From Chapter 159)

But besides that, BokuBen has made me a firm believer of partisanship in shipping wars. I will be a Rizu Ogata x Nariyuki Yuiga fan FOR THE REST OF MY FUCKING LIFE. Though it was bold for Tsutsui pull off the “visual novel” ending of the series—i.e. Giving every girl their own route with Nariyuki—it was ultimately effective as it appeased every faction & subsequently avoided catastrophe. I’m glad I was able khổng lồ witness Ogata have an ending with Nariyuki. She was happy just like how the rest of the main girls were happy in their routes, so I’m happy too.

BokuBen was the first I read in its infancy. It was the first I saw that grew into a staple of its corresponding genre. It was the first that touched my soul. It was the first that I felt genuinely elated in watching over its television existence—not once have I frowned when I watched the show’s 26 episodes and two OVAs (except for the last three minutes of course).

It was the first that touched, grasped, held, and caressed my soul lượt thích a sleeping toddler. The simile sounds strange lớn read but I believe it’s appropriate. I was raised within the manga scene by BokuBen.

Man, I’m so happy right now.

While everyone is going khổng lồ be hyped for the popular shows coming in the near future (MHA, OPM, MP100, Jojo’s, Promised Neverland), your boi will be all in on We Can’t Study. It’s one of the first manga series I’ve ever followed since its inception. It’s dear to lớn my heart. I can’t wait to lớn see the first episode.

From yours truly after the anime announcement was leaked on Twitter.

Remember when I talked about my life for a quick second in “Finding Strength”? Well, I have an update about my life that I’d like to share. I’ve graduated from my university with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Management with cum laude honors. I work for two different websites as a freelance writer with no signs of stopping anytime soon.

As much as I have risen from my situation of not having a direction with my studies, I’m aware that my life story doesn’t kết thúc after graduation. Sticking true with the messages relayed by Taruaki Yuiga, Nariyuki’s father, I’m continuing to strive for a better future than what I have cultivated thus far. The work continues, the struggle persists, but my resilience will endure.

And so, I bid BokuBen adieu—and on my birthday no less.

December 23rd, 2020

I’ve written something about BokuBen every year at exactly the same month. Was it destiny that I completed the trifecta today?

In any case, you have given me everything so I’m thanking you for everything.
