Ping Pong for LOVE

First chapter of a new manga by the author of The Law of Ueki.
Does not look good, but I do have to admire the basic premise (which it takes it's sweet ass time getting to -- the main reason I think it doesn't look good).
Essentially, boy meets girl, they fall in love, totally ready to go out, but one little problem...they are not legally allowed to go out unless he can defeat her in ping pong. And she's, uh, violently good.
She actually murders him.
With ping pong.

Law of Ueki was never exactly good, either, but it has a certain madcap thrill to it since it was so clearly being improvised. Plus he somehow managed to tie everything together into a really satisfying ending.
Law of Ueki Plus was less fortunate, and pretty much got shitcanned early.
