Beautiful, intelligent, athletic; Sally has it all. Then she has Kiyoshi, the idiot boyfriend who follows her around like a lost puppy. What he lacks in smarts he makes up for in looks, charm and pure blind luck. Kiyoshi's best friend, Ellice, takes being "easy" to a whole new level. Finally there's Chloe, Sally's disturbingly hyperactive cousin.
Seemingly like an island in a vast sea of stupidity, can Sally survive her teenage years without going completely and utterly mental?

Reviews - What do customers think about Chugworth Academy Vol 1 (Chugworth Academy)?
Intelligent, gross and very adult May 3, 2007
Chugworth Academy is very funny but not for kids. It deals with sex, school, relationships between males and females, the Internet, AD&D, dyed hair, school uniforms, oral, movies, and tons of other issues that build up our world. And why we need to find the humor to deal with it. With a foreword by Fred Gallagher, of megatokyo fame, as while as bonus artwork and comics, this is a great example of why Web Comics are taking over the planet.
A welcome find Sep 11, 2006
I picked this up recently, and I must say I was impressed. I love the comic, and read the back strips often so it was a no brainer. The format is easy to read, and the quality of the whole thing is great. I actually expected the book to cover quite a bit less of the comics than it did, so I was pleasently superised. The extras are really cool, none of which I have seen before, and were very entertaining. Also, the words from the writer and artist are just too perfect.
The New Love Hina Sep 5, 2006
After my friend and I finished reading the Love Hina series by Ken Akamatsu we were happy for the characters, etc., etc. But soon after we felt all empty inside.
Then one day I was searching around for web-comics and found Chugworth Academy (before Go Manga got ahold of it). It was funneh! So I shared the link with my LH bud and we read a few and then went on with our lives.
One day later on me and the same pal were searching for manga at a local BAM and I just happened to spot CA in a big Vol. 1! We bought it and I took it home. It changed my life. CA is the new LH!
Good art...everything else, on the other hand... Aug 31, 2006
While the art quickly evolves from "fairly good" to "very attractive"(especially for the female characters), the humor and feeble, abortive attempts at a plot are amateurish in comparison. This is a shame as the characters, while basic, are pretty likable and I'd like to be able to enjoy them more. Dave Cheung needs to find a writer capable of giving his fine art skills fuller use.
Fantastic! Aug 26, 2006
A humurous comic, but definitely not for children. I am looking forward for the second volume.
