V1 Aho-Girl: A Clueless Girl

(1)

Equal parts cute, silly, and subversive, the four-panel comedy manga Ahogaru was a surprise hit in Japan. Fans of anarchic slice-of-life gag manga like Azumanga Daioh – these are the new laughs you’ve been waiting for! Yoshiko is a hopefully clueless high school girl. Her rock-paper-scissors strategy is “rock.” She somehow gets zeroes on multiple-choice tests. And she has an often-nearly-fatal weakness for bananas. Her devoted friends have no choice but to hang around and make sure nobody takes advantage of her. (Of course, the entertainment value might have something to do with it, too.) Cute characters, weird gags, and lots and lots of bananas!

I’m With Stupid -- These are just some of the impenetrable mysteries in Yoshiko Hanabatake’s life: Why is her best friend Akkun always angry? Why does she keep getting zeros on her tests? Why do bananas taste so good? For one as enlightened as she, the answers are irrelevant. And yet her total obliviousness may prove to be a liability as the forces around her struggle for supremacy. Or, actually, she’ll probably be fine.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does -- Summer break has arrived, and with it come expanded opportunities for Yoshiko to practice self-expression. Of course, for someone as unburdened of intellect as she is, that self-expression tends to be rather lacking in sophistication. Okay, fine—it’s profoundly stupid. Her friend Akkun might be able to handle her, but will he be able to deal with Ryuichi the delinquent’s pathetic attempts at friendship? And what about Yoshiko’s mother’s increasingly manipulative attempts at setting Akkun up with her daughter? Oh, well. Surely a trip to the beach will sort everything out…

V5 Aho-Girl: A Clueless Girl

(0)

Strength in Stupidity Yoshiko’s no fool. Wait, no. That’s exactly what she is. After her latest preternaturally dismal performance on their midterm exams, the long-suffering Akkun takes it upon himself to investigate training options for the wayward girl. After all, dogs can be trained—and surely Yoshiko is smarter than a dog. Surely.

Yoshiko Saves Christmas -- Yoshiko isn’t merely stupid. She isn’t just a fool. Her foolishness transcends boundaries and borders—she is a genius, a savant of stupidity. Her ability is so profound it can make the simplest activity—reading comics with a friend—into a lascivious voyage into the heart of darkness. Or maybe she’s just not very good at reading. The point is, just don’t tell her that Santa doesn’t exist. She might resort to drastic measures.

Sleepyhead -- Getting out of bed on time is a challenge for anyone. But getting Yoshiko out of bed on the first day of the new school year isn’t just a challenge for Akkun—it’s his Everest, his northwest passage, his white whale. Or at least, that’s what Yoshiko’s decided it’s going to be. She’s determined to kick the school year off in style, and if that means provoking her old friend beyond the point of sanity, well—nobody can accuse her of being insufficiently committed to her ideals. Her stupid, stupid ideals.

No Idiot Left Behind -- Little Ruri is struggling with her studies, but her elder brother Akkun, ever mindful of a good education's value, is determined to tutor her through her academic slump. There's no motivation like direct experience, and both Ruri and Akkun know perfectly well what the endgame of foolishness is. And yet--is being Yoshiko so bad? She always seems to be having so much fun. The real lesson may very well be that while scissors beats paper and rock beats scissors, stupidity never loses.

There’s Not An App For That Pokomon Go fever is sweeping the nation! In these modern times, where even toddlers are glued to their phones, this is one trend that Yoshiko is definitely not missing out on. Wait, sorry, I’m getting an update… What’s that? She doesn’t even know how to open the app? That can’t be right. Nobody’s that stupid. (Editor’s Note: The copywriter responsible for saying “nobody’s that stupid” about Yoshiko has been fired.)

Stupidity Goes on Tour The time has come for that hallmark of high school life: the school trip. Yoshiko’s class will be visiting the balmy southern isle of Okinawa. Yoshiko’s deeply interested in the fascinating history and culture of the Okinawan islands, so she’s excited to go. Nah, just kidding, she doesn’t even know where Okinawa is, and she’s only excited because some fool told her there were good bananas there. Classic Yoshiko.

All’s Fair in Love and Idiocy Little Tanaka has a schoolboy crush on Ruri Akutsu, but Ruri remembers all too well how Tanaka used to treat her. Fortunately, Tanaka’s got Yoshiko in his corner to provide her inimitable perspective on matters of the heart. (Vegas odds on Tanaka remaining single for life as a result of Yoshiko’s advice are currently running over a hundred to one “for.”) Later, Yoshiko demonstrates her boar-hunting prowess. Yes, seriously.

All Stupid Things Must Come to a Stupid End The cherry blossom’s petals grace spring with their pale pink hue for but a few, fleeting days before falling. Time grinds ever forward, turning oceans into deserts and mountains into dust. Even the greatest human life is destined to become dimly-remembered history before vanishing into oblivion forever. And yet–could it be that the one unchanging thing in this cold universe is not hope, nor faith, nor even love, but sheer, utter, total stupidity? And if so, would that not make Yoshiko like unto a god? Eh, probably not. Final Volume!
