AySz88:

It's not an (American) comic book about statistics, it's manga. As those familiar with them, that pretty much explains everything. (For those that don't, it's rather standard fare to play with self-deprecating, overly cheesy plotlines, cliches, and faux pas.)

I actually find this likely to be useful as a first exposure to statistics concepts for a young manga-loving student. (In my case, I'm thinking perhaps precalc-level, entering high school.)
