High schoolers Yuki and Shigeru aren't dating, but still enjoy a highly active sexual relationship. Naïve and still very child-like in the way they think, it comes as a great shock to them when Shigeru discovers she's pregnant.

This is a short story about teen pregnancy. It is quite on the aloof side as the whole thing is not exactly taken too seriously while all the major issues are resolved in a very forced way. One side refuses, an accident happens, and the opposition is silenced. Anyways, it is mostly comedy rather than romance or drama (or porn) and it doesn’t waste entire volumes in filler side stories. Each chapter has something new to offer and the pacing is just fine.

The art is rather simple, with the characte

This 3 volume series takes on teen pregnancy in such a light-hearted kind of way, that you almost forget that it is a serious topic.

Akkan Baby has a rough, urban art style. The two main characters are are childish, crazy, a bit ignorant and extremely immature. Or perhaps they are exactly as mature as two crazy teens should be. Their naive (because it can't exactly be called innocent) love leads to an unexpected teen pregnancy and, strangely enough, hilarity ensues. Teen sex and pregnancy tales are often told melodramatically but Akkan Baby tackles the issue in a lighthearted coming-of-age/slice-of-life style.

Warning: NR-17 S

Cute and absolutely hilarious!! Both of the main character's are dumb as hell, hence how she got pregnant in the first place, however it's still a great read with lots of laughs. The sad thing, stuff like this happens in real life to people who do the exact same things in high school these days without learning anything about sex-ed.
