This is.... Zero for the plot, zero for the hotness. It's so predictable, unrealistic and vanilla that, hell, I'd say even Hana Yori Dango had scenes more steamy than this manga (even though it's been years since I've read that. If you're wondering about the plot or characters, don't bother with this. Actually, don't bother with this.

well the first few chapters are pretty good the guy has a bit more balls than your usual MCs I thought this would be a bit more like Love Junkies however Love Junkies has a lot more plot than this, don´t get me wrong I love mangas like Love Junkies (where the guy actually has sex and dates the girls not just the usual crap) ( I would love it more if he had a harem )
However in this one
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in this one it starts with a plot but after a few chapters it´s just random sex and it gets boring as hell reading just random sex it´s like reading hentai but with sex a lot shorter, hope it gets better in the later volumes since this has 25 volumes + 7 volumes in a sequel

I really wanted to like this.
The whole "prudish man is led into a world of sexual freedom, by the physical incarnation of his perfect woman" idea sounded right up my alley.

But instead of becoming a happy little sexually satisfied horndog, Takashi and his lady friends are a bunch of vapid amoral creeps.
There are tons of explicit one night stands for the sake of one night stands; all completely lacking in real eroticism, and imbued with a preachy, seventies style, libertine doctrine throughout.
Chapter after chapter a repetitive scenario unfolds, where the only real difference is a change of lady and location.
What this story lacks ironically, is a real sense of desire.

"Takashi's Formulaic Hump of the Week" may be a more apt title.

Initially, its quite cool. A mysterious lady that shouldn´t exist. A man that was straight lace becoming obsessed with her. It was like Carmen almost. There´s even a scene where he stops another girl´s advances because he´s obsessed.

... but then it becomes porn. Very soft, barely graphic porn. Porn that goes nowhere, with just sort of interesting scenarios. Most aren´t outlandish or anything but still. The story goes nowhere and its... just bad porn with interesting scenario.

Being partial to a more jun'ai take on romance, I can't say I find this manga particularly enjoyable. More or less standalone chapters of people sleeping around, with only a phantom plot (so far at least), isn't really entertaining to me. If you're the type of person who considers a life of continuous one-night stands as something desirable, then you might like this manga more than I do, though.

While the first several chapters have good scenario, and storytelling, it lacks in the later chapters with very simplistic thought. It ends up being very smutty, and starts completely disregarding the nature of the first several chapters that made you think, "what next?"
