It says it's a school life/seinen/sports, but it's that most people don't really think of Game Show
in a school setting as a sport like football or something.
I'm planning to make a Game Show Tournament Arc
story on a middle school setting, but I'm not sure what exact genre I would call that.
The hero is an ordinary Cute Shotaro Boy
who is Good with Numbers
but sucks at everything else
. On the day he and his Cool Big Sis
took the entrance exam for a local middle school, he saved a young girl from getting hit by a speeding car, leaving him Not Quite Dead
While in coma, he had a vision of his Disappeared Dad
giving him a MacGuffin
that holds the memories of all its past wielders, turning him into Cursed with Awesome
when he recovers just in time for his first day in middle school as he manages to ace all subjects including those he used to suck at before.
So the resident Obi Wan
recruits him and a bunch of Ragtag Bunchof Misfits
on their way to lead their local middle school to a nationwide quiz bowl championship.
I had a few concerns about the setting and the characters which I will discuss in detail later.
