I've begun reading this manga recently.So far,it's awesome.
What's it about?Here's a synopsis I googled up right now.

This is like the Movie SuperBad in manga. It brings you back to when u were in middle-school/high-school or whenever you had your first bf/gf. This series is very funny and captivating. The X-factor i would have to say is its slice-of-life realism. Every event in this manga actually seem possible in real life. You would think an very average geek/otaku/nerd/ landing hot Babes (that's right babes) are only found in ecchi/romance/shogen mangas. Yet again, it actually makes sense in this manga

Is there anyone else reading this? If you aren't, your missing out!

You sure it's a book named after tropical fish poisoning?


Ciguatera is a foodborne illness poisoning in humans caused by eating marine species whose flesh is contaminated with a toxin known as ciguatoxin, which is present in many microorganisms (particularly the micro-algae Gambierdiscus toxicus) living in tropical waters.


I googled it and I couldn't find any manga.

from ANN

The title came from food poisoning caused by ciguatoxin, a toxin present in many microorganisms living in tropical waters, often accumulated all the way to the top of the food chain through biomagnification. The author used this title to symbolize the lives of his characters are undergoing a slow but accumulating form of self-inflicted poisoning
