Sex Ed 120% Vol 1 Review

When I first heard about Sex Ed 120%, I assumed that it would be a raunchy comedy, with a bit of educational content thrown in.

A dark-fantasy manga tinged with elements of horror, Kousuke Satake’s The Witch and the Beast intrigued me, in large part due to it’s beautiful and atmospheric-looking cover art.
