Wilds High has a history of 42 years as an all girls, private highschool meant solely for the elite of martial arts. Wilds-League holds the most popular event in the country, the only place in the world where teenage girls have brutal fights for their lives. Suddenly it changed into a mixed gender school. The only male student- Song Jae Gu, has been granted a full 3-year scholarship regardless of grades. Being someone who had to spend every moment working or taking care of his two younger brothers, he accepted.
However, the scholarship was granted with the sole condition he does not leave. But after meeting Queen, the bloody champion of Wild’s-League, drenching her in coffee, calling her a “Monster” and getting caught while she was taking a shower… that could prove fatal.
Our main character, Jaegu is a really hardworking guy who tries his best to give his siblings everything they need to grow healthy and happy. Unfortunately he has lost himself in the process.
He finds the school offer to be too good to turn down so despite not knowing anything about sports or martial arts, he accepts.
Being bullied throughout all his school years and having an incident first thing first day, he doesn’t expect to find friends in this school.
Throughout the manhwa Jaegu gets into trouble and is bullied a lot by his former school mates but these amazing girls are always there to help him, teach him to take care of himself and have more confidence. With them, he becomes stronger little by little and also more open. There’s a love triangle alright and that’s the only annoying thing this manhwa has.
Queen, Moonyoung and Daldal are great characters. They are strong, independent and funny. Each of them has their own developed story line, personalities and goals to achive. We see them become better friends with each other and grow up by each chapter.
The action is amazing! We get to see martial arts competitions. We see the girls kick ass and Jaegu stand up for himself.
There’s a mixture of humor and seriousness and the art is breathtaking. Plus, it made me feel like working out. Ha ha!
