It's clear as the day since the first chapter that the MC's Grandfather hired Sarutobi to "train" Inugami into being a better heir, because she "apparently grow up thinking she needed to match up the expectations put onto her rather than being herself" or some other bull like that.
Further more, this kind of plot in shonen is rather common when gender-bent, the male main character getting defeated by the girl that just transferred in everything he though he was good at, and not really uncommon on Shoujo, both one way and the other. So, while I don't mind people not liked the manga, since I don't think it's that good, I would really like it if people stop bringing the whole "battle of the sexes" and "discrimination" arguments on a manga that's not really about that.

Finally, my real concern whit this manga is how the author sucks at writing "smart" people, the stuff he thinks clever seems like a third grader attempt at being smart.

Too soon to tell

I'll cautiously agree with jasperv - it's too soon to judge, This is definitely not Renai Shimasen ka which was a refreshing, entertaining, and sweet read, so this follow-up work is especially jarring for existing on the total opposite end of spectrum. This not Nana to Kaoru, where for all their use of ropes/gags/etc. the underlying emotions are gentle and romantic.

I can't tell where this is going, but the lack of 'romance' tag as a category gives me cause for concern (EDIT: Ok they added one recently. There's still a loooong way to go to get there). If this becomes just an episodic game of humiliation then it will quickly wear thin for many. I'm hoping there is a broader reason for his treatment of her and that he will eventually come to like/love her - they might actually see each other as equals. Could just be wishful thinking though.

me too was taken back by this new work of Tachibana Roku.
after the interesting oneshot and the solid "Renai Shimasen ka?"
the mangaka had a promising start, and a potential to do something different.
yes, it's still too early to judge if this is about psychological S&M, if it was why the POV is the female protag, also she's referred to as the "Heroine", and the vilain the male protag, maybe this is what makes this manga different.
I'm still hoping for something new and interesting.

A rare and more morally disgusting type of SM

Just like Drpepper b4 me said its an SM oriented work.... Not the nice type like Nana to Kaoru
But the more disturbing type where the entertainment IS the person suffering and breaking without them doing the sexual pleasure of the masochism type...
Also this is on the subject of seeing how a strong woman breaks in suffering... As the entertainment.... I mean there's already enough horrible amounts and degree of sexism in the manga/anime world on avg .... This is taking it even further...
Granted despite all the revulsion and moral repugnunce I have for it...there's sadly and credit to the author that you hate it but want to see wht happens next.

Minor form of SM

That's a really exclusive manga i've read in a while. In my opinion it's a fine piece of art, especially since I like stories where a girl gets opressed by the male. This is kinda like a minor form of SM, whereas the male is humiliating the female. It's shown in chapter 3, that all the books are about taming strong-willed dogs and I gotta say that's the best part of SM, when a strong willed female breaks.

I just generally like this because it's full of hatred. the woman is to high of herself, but them it's a ommon manga.. so everyone is really, and all that competes with itself. In any case another broing ass manga, tired of this shit....

Not quite sure what to think...

This is the story of a spoiled princess type character being taken down a peg...kind of. The thing is, she's really not actually that spoiled. I mean sure she does think highly of herself internally but they make it clear from the start of the manga that she's very much a hard working and she's still kind and friendly to be people around her. She's respected for her achievements as much as her lineage.

So even though I'm not generally a fan of the ojou-sama archetype I found Tsubaki to be surprisingly likable. And at the same time I found Sanosuke surprisingly *un*likable. I just don't understand what his deal is. He clearly has it out for her. He seems to actually revel in making her life miserable, yet there's no reason he should have a grudge against her. She never did anything to him. (Now she has every reason to bear a grudge towards him but that's a different story...) It's still early in the manga so maybe there's some past event between the two that we don't know about, but there's been zero foreshadowing if that's the case. I also can't really fathom what the grandfather was thinking in the first place...

After the incredibly sweet Renai Shimasen ka this feels like a pretty dramatic change for the author. I can only hope that these characters get some more development later one because as things stand right now it's just the story of a sadistic asshole making life miserable for a girl just for the hell of it.
