A manga that has been generally well-received, judging by the reviews I've seen... And frankly speaking, I found it really good too. Well...? >_>

I started reading it when it first came out last year and thought it was good. Sasamori is freaking adorable. :3

The art style is ridiculously moe. All of the girls looks ridiculously adorable. It provides a sharp contrast with its actual message, which has a much darker undertone and deals with more serious issues such as bullying.

In general the seinen genre isn't that popular, so it's easy for something like this to be missed. Also, even the mangaka pokes fun at the fact that Iris Zero lacks fan service so far. Curses! XD

Seinen? *looks at Liar Game* >_>

Well... many people have wondered whether it's shonen or seinen. I'm not that sure which one it is, though (unless it's possible to be both, but I doubt it).

And I doubt a good manga needs fanservice... <_<

The themes involved aren't shounen material. Compare Iris Zero with something like Bleach. Bleach's themes are like "bravery" and "friendship rules all" type of stuff. Iris Zero adopts themes like "bullying" and "people have untellable secrets" and the like. The way the plot is being handled is outside of shounen territory.

Mind you, it's quite minute a detail to work on, since the art style is moe moe. Then again, School Days looked moe moe (deconstruction of H-game harem genre, brutal deconstruction of the harem genre in the package of an H-game). Madoka looked moe moe.

Well it doesn't have to be Bleach. Take like any shounen manga from Fairy Tail to One Piece to Air Gear. The variations in themes aren't that great, though I would note that the presentations on the themes vary (e.g. One Piece is very good at delivering its themes for example).

Well it's a weekly and the scanlation is up to date with the manga itself. tbh I really like this manga and I'm glad someone else has heard of it. :3

Only actually read One Piece. And even in the shonen demographic, I see many, many different themes. [/LuckyStar] @_@ Keep in mind Lucky Star is just an example.

I'm also glad someone else here reads the manga. Only 2 people, though? D:

To be fair, something like Iris Zero just isn't popular enough to warrant anybody outside of the "hardcore" manga readers to read. Heck, my Madoka thread garnered a grand total of zero replies despite it being the hottest anime this season.

The pe2k kids generally don't keep up with anime outside of the stuff that comes out on TV.


Edit: OMG ch 16 is so cute. :3 I wanna give Sasamori a hug. X3
