The story of Ciguatera follows Ogino who is bullied by a high school bully Tani(Taniwaki). At the start of the manga life is looks bleak for Ogino, who has only one friend; Takai (who is also bullied by Tani) and is interested only in bikes.
Ogino eventually tries to get his motorcycle license without his parents knowledge and meets Nagumo. The two start dating and Ogino finds the world a better place.
Once Ogino starts dating Nagumo, things get better for him. Tani stops bullying him and even moves out of school and he gets his motorcycle license.
The title came from food poisoning caused by ciguatoxin, a toxin present in many microorganisms living in tropical waters, often accumulated all the way to the top of the food chain through biomagnification. The author used this title to symbolize the lives of his characters are undergoing a slow but accumulating form of self-inflicted poisoning.
I would say it's about the frustrations of love and the rewards of perseverance. Plot-wise this is the story of an ordinary high-school senior falling in love with a hot girl. The plot devices used make this a seinen take on a teenagy story.
