For all you Manga Lovers out there. I present to you this weeks Manga Review, Sir Tigers Table. There are four volumes in this one. It is still ongoing so the ending isn’t clear yet. The main guy, handsome Geum Ho, is very annoying, snobby and spoiled. He clearly has a long way to go.

Meng Geum Ho who is actually the popular author Eun Ho transfers to a new school. Unwilling to socialize with any of his classmates he soon gets himself a bad reputation as someone who is not to mess with. When the unpopular girl called “One” accidently watches him beat up some guys, she runs away in fear but leaves her lunchbox behind. Meng Geum Ho finds it and searches for it’s owner stating that he’d also have a request for that person. What could that request be? And what happens when One and Meng Geum Ho are forced to be partners on a field trip?
|One| |Sa Yeong| |Meng Geum|
The main female protagonist, ‘One’ is the quiet underdog in the school. She never speaks up or defends herself. Which causes a lot of problems for her and the people around her. One is best friends with Sa Yeong who is the schools best athlete. This makes Sa Yeong popular and loved by everyone. Due to her popularity, other students don’t understand why she is friends with the weak loser, One.
Meng Geum Ho, the male protagonist, is actually the popular author Eun Ho. He is currently posing as a high school student to blend in. He is rude, mean and a bully. Meng Geum is constantly picking fights with all the students.

Story: The class president ends up pairing One with Meng Geum in a school project. However, One is too terrified of speaking to him. As she was leaving class she spots him and summons up the courage to speak with him. Unfortunately, she ends up catching him in a fight. As she was watching, she trips and falls over him *manga physics and logic. After that, she spends the rest of the class time afraid of him. Then Sa Yeong springs into action and arranges the whole thing for her.
Some people might thing that this plot is predictable. True. But…I’ve never read a manga where this is extended over several chapters. Which made this very interesting! We’ve all seen the tough guy and weak girl dynamic before. However, in this one, Meng Geum doesn’t dramatically change over night. He stays this way for over 12 long chapters. This storyline is fleshed out beautifully. He stays loyal to his personality and really doesn’t hold back at all when he is yelling and fighting with others.
I really like this manga because I see it giving the characters enough time to grow properly. I predict that as the chapters go on, when Meng Geum finally falls in love with One. He won’t wear those stupid glasses anymore. I really hate them!
Now, I will leave you with a few snippets of this love story.
