Again!! is one of those manga I’ve been following and are still going on in my country. Those include Jojolion, Promised Neverland, Berserk, Golden Kamuy… I’m also buying some older stuff but that’s not really relevant here.
I’m not aware of any French translation. I’ve been reading the US edition. Right now there are only six volumes out, the seventh is scheduled for next week.
The art is very pleasant, you get to see some nice features and pretty faces. Expect a bunch of realism.
The manga is not really focused on love stories; more like a School + Slice of Life manga. You are following the ups and downs of an Ouendan which I believe americans would call a cheering squad - led by a girl: Yoshiko Usami (see picture above) who is incidentally the squad’s only member. (The old members all parted ways to join other clubs a while ago.)
The MC, Kinichiro Imamura (see cover of the second volume), becomes a member of the Ouendan in the ﬁrst chapters. He’s always been a loner.
The Ouendan’s purpose is to cheer on the other clubs (ie. the baseball team). While Imamura is trying to get the Ouendan back on his feets, captain Usami is way more impulsive on that matters and don’t like to resort to Imamura’s tricks to improve their image.
A lot happens in the ﬁrst six volumes, there is a lot of character development (I was expecting everyone to round up around Usami and go “Omedeto!” at some point).
To sum it up, here are a few pros of the series:
