Hi Everyone,

We have a new manga title launching today! From Norifusa Mita, creator of Investor Z, Dragon Zakura 2 will be launching today at 5pm PT for all members worldwide, with new updates weekly on Wednesdays at 5pm PT.



Prior to the 2020 Education Reform, “our man” is coming back!

He’s the legendary attorney Sakuragi Kenji, who will waltz back to the fallen Ryuzan High School where the students’ academic aptitude is plummeting. In opposition to apathetic students and “The Empress” (Representative of the Chief Director) who wields overwhelming authority, he will start a revolution along with Mizuno, his former pupil.

Part 2 of Dragon Zakura, the legendary “manga that will help you pass the University of Tokyo entrance exams” — which helped change the landscape of Japan’s university entrance exams — is here at last!

Rest assured, entering the University of Tokyo is going to be a cinch!

Man, it's basically a manga about people on the school board arguing, but against all odds I still ended up liking chapter 1

What I read of the original was fantastic (and sadly only a bit of it is available in English.... by certain means.....) so this will likely be awesome. Will be sure to read it as soon as I can. ><

...What? Anyone got source on this? (I guess it'd be in Japanese, but that's fine)

I just recently read Answerman: "How Tough Is It To Get Into College In Japan?" https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/answerman/2017-10-27/.123155

There was also recently a viral tweet about a student who got a perfect score on one of the Center tests: https://en.rocketnews24.com/2018/01/18/teen-gets-perfect-score-on-japans-college-entrance-history-exam-with-crazy-detailed-notes%E3%80%90pics%E3%80%91/

Oh and the original manga tells you, not really how to cheat, but how to take advantage of tests in addition about how to study. One thing it very clearly states is to take the easiest test with the least competition to get into a university and then transfer over to the department you actually want to be in later.

Well, that's amazing.

Sounds like the test strategies in SAT prep books I'm surprised universities would allow / haven't cracked down on that.
