We Never Learn Manga's Lead Heroines Ranked in Jump Polls

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Taishi Tsutsui's We Never Learn romantic comedy stars brainiac Yuiga as he attempts to tutor the beautiful Ogata and Furuhashi in the hopes of earning a scholarship. This puts him in proximity to not just two, but several cute girls and you know what that means: time to pick your favorite. This year's 23rd issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump published the results of the series' popularity poll on May 2 and Viz Media's English edition of the magazine also revealed the results on Monday.

In first place is Mafuyu Kurisu, the student counselor at Yuiga's school and a former tutor for Ogata and Furuhashi. As a school staff member, Kurisu is a messy, clumsy adult. Seeing neither of the central love interests in first place is definitely unexpected.

In second place is Fumino Furuhashi, one of Yuiga's tutored students and a genius when it comes to writing and other liberal arts areas. She's horrible at math but wants to major in science anyway.

In third place is Uruka Takemoto, another student in need of studying tips. Takemoto is an athletic star but has no motivation when it comes to academics.

The top three had a change up with Viz asked its English readers to weigh in on their favorites. Fumino Furuhashi took first place, followed by Mafuyu Kurisu in second place, and Asumi Kominami in third place.

  1. Mafuyu Kurisu
