There's new chapter 22 from last month. I hope we can catch up the translation.

Also, can't wait to see the TV drama adaptation! I'm just hoping they don't mess too much with the story/writing...

@biply A ho's a ho, my dude. They do, in fact, lack class, and thus it makes sense that they would not be appealing to some/most people. I agree though it's pretty unrealistic that some lame slut would ever try to improve themselves though. This manga totally has the wrong view of lazy cunt sellers.

If you agree with this manga, you need to reevaluate your views on women, and rape, and basically most things. Like if you can't understand why telling a girl who says "i wanna fuck", oh well prostitutes hundreds of years ago didn't soil themselves that easily you lack class etc is incredibly fucked, then...christ.

@usher teach did a trick(which was dirty), by asking if she wanted to get married.
if she replies yes(which she did), he could just say 'but i dont wanna'
if she replies no, he could say,'well, you should understand me yeah?'
or something like that, check the comments section of that chapter for a clearer explanation

I like how everyone is raped in this story LOL

@UnLunDun i wish i quadruple-checked my post because it is very vague and generalizes both eastern and western thought. Much to my dismay... i think my generalization of both is wrong.

Modern philosophy (at least in America) is very analytical in the sense that they focus on the function of concepts and ideas (think Dewey’s instrumentalism). Everything has a use (function) towards the betterment of humans/society. It should be that way, or so the argument goes. And from that (as a side note) morals/ethics would improve as we understand ourselves and the world better (through science, psychology, knowledge, etc). Morals in academic philosophy is often not the focus, but in politics i can see how the masses see it as important.

To bring it back, i still stand by this manga being therapeutic in the sense that it “wakes” the students up from their prejudices and bias. To bring it more closer to what i claimed, the author uses these nuggets of truth to “help” students improve themselves, which in turn helps the class improve as a whole... see the relation to instrumentalism?

Also of note, Confucianism makes a similar argument in that people better themselves because of the rulers. They have a role and it’s through ritual, virtues, and tradition of those in power that trickles down to the masses and keeps the society healthy/flourishing. The difference is how to approach the betterment of society (eastern == ritual, western == principles).

I cannot stressed how much im generalizing both thoughts. My critique of the authors attempts of ethics is, i believe, spot on. But to explain why would mean pulling out my old books and notebooks on eastern thought (i actually pulled my old ‘Classic Asian Philosophy’ book to see whether i was right about Confucianism, I immediately corrected the massive mistake I was about to post). I feel somewhat confident in what i wrote, and i havent read marcus aurelius but ill read any nuggets of truth you’re willing to share. Im questioning my “nuggets of truth” already 😦

I don't know for sure that he's solving problems with ethics, but I think it's more like he's using the outlook on life he's developed through studying ethics to understand other people and what to do to help them. At the end of the day, this is GTO with a gloomy MC instead of an ex-delinquent, but it's still an okay read. Some of the stories are rushed (chapter two in particular) but there's probably at least one in there that the reader will relate to. There was a particular scene that sucker punched the hell out of me because I never expected any manga to address that topic, and I felt kind of validated reading it.

It's nice to see people reading this and thinking about Ethics because Ethics is what makes you become a better person, but it lacks the deepness that studies in this subject have, so I advice you to read some of the authors mentioned here, specially the Greeks. Look up for some reading lists online or ask someone you know that knows Philosophy to know where to start if you want to

I personally liked the more 'unpretentious' chapters a lot more than the ones where the teacher rambles about philosophy (with the persona chapter being one exception, probably because I enjoy the subject a lot). That was especially powerful in the second chapter. Just when I expected the teacher to give some meaningful speech that would save the girl and close the chapter with fanfare and a cool Jojo pose, he gave in to his emotions and blurted the lamest thing possible.

"We shall now begin ethics" is also an incredibly badass title. Damn.

@miramira I'd say it's modern western philosophy that's so obsessed with right and wrong. I don't think it's a coincidence that the manga focuses so much on ancient greek philosophy, which was actually preoccupied with how to live a good life and has a lot of resemblances with the Japanese way of life. Marcus Aurelius' Meditations reads a lot like modern Japanese thought and culture.
