Wa! (Akira KOJIMA)

Nothing outstanding about it*, but still somewhat amusing and engaging*. Mainly, it's just simple and easy to read*; a time-filler*. The best scene is the accidental eyepoke*. The third volume, the wrap-up volume, is the least interesting*.

Like* many gag manga, this one is built around taking relatively normal things to absurd levels. The premise itself is built around the completely normal idea of unreciprocated love (such as "love triangles"), but taken to the absurd level of having seven people involved instead of two or three. And instead of trying to make the relationship constellation in any way realistic (by making it messier), they portray it in an absurdly organized fashion by having the chart of unreciprocated loves form a perfect circle. They'll have some characters unashamedly express or act on odd values and other characters get flustered or embarrassed or whatever--pretty standard straight man type humor. They also have some intermedial strips with two girls (not part of the circle) who do observational comedic bits, with the classic (?) arm-swinging, and some other side characters come into play as well. Quite a few observations about language quirks--idioms and stuff.
