Seriously Underrated Shonen Adventure/Romance
Action packed, fill with laughter, martial arts, a side of drama and lots of oppai. The male lead can be a little underwhelming at times because he's surrounded by super powered martial arts freaks, but he ultimately wins the girl not because of how strong he is, but because of how far he's willing to go for her.
Sometimes the plot can get a little messy, but overall it's serviceable and the ending is packed with feels of the happy kind. If you like adventure, action, martial arts, cute chicks and romance, then you'll likely really enjoy this manga.
A Great, Exciting Manga
So this was kind of a surprise for me that I ended up liking this as much as I did, during the early chapters there was a few times where I was sure the story was going to start petering off soon and then suddenly I was over halfway through the series. One of the greatest strengthens of this series is the length, it feels long enough that they can have an actual plotlines and story arcs while not being so long that you lose interest. The characters are also one of the story's stronger points, though some of them are a bit shallow they do a good job of making most of the side characters useful and still contributing to the plot. Even the action is well done, the artist does a good job making us feel like some real violence is taking place. This series also succeeds by having a satisfying ending, something which many manga don't manage.
Of course there's some downsides. One of the biggest issues for me is that at times it feels like the romance is pretty shallow. It always bothers me when I don't know exactly why our main characters like each other, it's not like the main couple has NO reason to like each other but I felt like it was one of those "we like each other because we're both attractive people" situations. Also while I do think the ending was satisfying it also came rather abruptly. I think this is another of those mangas that would seriously benefit from an additional volume, or at least a proper epilogue chapter. We don't even get to see what happens with any of the side characters which is kind of a shame. Also while there IS a plotline that runs through the whole manga it often feels kinda disjointed, and they seem to just completely drop some plot threads entirely on occasion.
Overall this is a nice series with some great artwork, an actual plotline and a cast of characters you won't want to murder. There are some story issues but still I had a fun time reading this, I recommend this to anyone who likes boobs and girls fighting.
It is simple but brilliant, and it ends with a happy feeling. It probably needed another chapter to give it a better closure and I think it needed the sword master father to have some influence in the development of the story, he barely appeared in comparison to the other two. The main guy can be a little bit naive at times, but that is his fortitude.
The best thing about this one is that it breaks out of certain typical situations that occur in other manga with romance, where the characters act in a way when presented with difficult situations that would make you think that they made the worst choice and want to get into the koma and punch them (you might identify them when you read this one) I found that really refreshing.
Give this one a try for a light read, there are no plot complications, you might enjoy it and like how it ends. I noticed this manga some months ago and found the synopsis and (specially) the cover pic retarded, made me think at the time "this stinks of useless guy and idiotic fanservice", and I was right! But it was properly developed.
too many useless male characters
the only thing i hate about this anime is the amount of male characters. im not effing homo i dont need those stupid male characters. what's worse is that they taking so many spaces on the pages. for example, the perverts on the school basically wants the female lead. instead of introducing female characters that helps the harem, you get those stupid male characters. then there's also the adult males, those are the bad points of this manga. its really a pain looking at those stupid characters.
Could have been better
This manga could have been better and I thought it would, but it was disappointing. The main character is a wimp that I would want to kill. He doesn't do anything and I was really hoping he changes but he doesn't. The plot was unique but it was not executed well. The ending was so rushed that argh.... Overall it was good at first but disappointing later on.
Halfway through, this manga stopped being about how many panty shots you could fit into a chapter and started focusing on things like laughter, life, and character. It isn't the sweetest story I've ever read, but it tries hard to come close to it. And there's a good deal of stuff that may or may not make sense, but it really leaves you with a smile and a really happy feeling.
All in all, it may take a little plowing through in the beginning, but definitely a manga to pick up and read if you have the time. Besides, I think it was worth reading just for the line "Even Wikipedia says it is!"

Stupid and Silly
If you're looking for a fun manga, with a decent story, then keep looking. If you're looking for a story with lots of gratuitous nudity, panty shots etc, plenty of violence, and you don't mind a moronic story, then this might be ok. Its essentially a fighting manga, without a story. Oh, they throw out some nonsense plot here and there, but its basically all just more excuses for the constant fighting. Nothing else really matters. It does have nice artwork which boosted my rating for it, but its really not worth reading, particularly not more then once.

This is a great manga to kill time though sometimes I felt it a bit drawn. I agree with MangaGhost in that the male protagonist isn't supposed to be strong. He complements the female protagonist. This is definitely an excellent action manga if you like martial arts. Having plenty of interesting characters, there are some parts where there isn't enough character development. I wouldn't say it was a strong romance in comparison with its action genre but it was a romance nonetheless. In my opinion, the ending wasn't as satisfying, but it wasn't bad. If there were like extra couple chapters to fill in the gaps, I would have liked the ending more. Overall, I say it was pretty good and definitely worth reading if your like reading action mangas. The fanservice doesn't hurt either.
Its just plain fun!
This manga is just a really good time. Its light not very deep, has some ecchi moments, nice art, cute girls, fun action, some gags, a rough plot, a bit of romance thrown in, likable fun characters. I don't have any serious complaints. Sure a few things are out there and a few characters are over the top, but nothing that should stop your enjoyment.
Some complain that the male lead is just a wimpy otaku, but that's the point. He's not supposed to be the martial arts expert in this series. Mainly its the wide variety of girls that kick butt. If you want a strong male lead read another series. He also has his strong points. He's willing to put his body on the line to protect people, so he's brave in his own way. He's also just a sweet kid and I think that comes across well and the reason why Motoko likes him.
Its a darn shame that the series doesn't have a stronger following (maybe its got too many topless moments). Its also a bummer that the series is ending, I wouldn't have minded it going on a few more volumes. But I guess its better than dragging on too long like some other mangas out there.
Incredibly good manga
This has got to be one of the more interesting mangas that I've read. When I stumbled over this I really just wanted to kill some time with a crappy manga. But I found out that this is an incredibly great manga with a hilarious, goofy, action-packed and simple story-line. Also a part of the split-personality-disorder is actually true. I mean the different personalities (of course) but also the fact that every personalities have their own unique strength, because they know how to work their muscles in a certain way... Anyway enough from Mr. Know-it-all, except for: "Read this manga if you want to read an awesome manga with comedy, action and romance".
