Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
Tadayasu would have loved to experience the college life as soon as the year began. Of course, he could not. The first day that he arrives at his university, Tadaysasu meets his professor at a possible human murder scene. The second day of school, he is already sick from eating infected curry. To make matters more interesting, Tadayasu can see bacteria with his naked eye. More than one person at the university wants to take advantage of his ability, whether for bootlegging sake or research. Who will he help?

Moyasimon is a book that does not follow the normal manga plotline. Oddly, Tadayasu does not meet any cute girls or have a fan club. Instead, his character serves as a puppet for the other characters' desires because of his ability to see bacteria. I love science, and this book was all about microbiology. This made it very interesting and unique to read. Being a manga, the end of the story leaves plenty of room for more volumes to come out. I look forward to reading them too.
