Shina Dark - Kuroki Tsuki no Ou to Souheiki no Himegimi

Welcome to the cursed island of Shina Dark. This island is called home by the dark lord Exoda C. Claw AKA Satan. He's as powerful a being as you could ever hope to meet. Feared and hated the world over for the infinite amount of atrocities he's committed. He's.....actually a really nice guy who just wants to chill out around the castle and relax... After a month long nap he awakens to find that the rest of the world has made up another ridiculous rumor and blown it way out of proportion and that has caused his little island to be crowded with a thousand beautiful girls meant to be his mistresses/sacrifices. Worse yet is that since they have set foot on his island they are all believed to be cursed and are now shunned by their homelands. What’s a couch potato Satan to do with 1000 women who wont leave? Who can say?

From Operation Boredom:

During an eclipse, demon Lord Exoda. C. Crown was revived. He is supposed to bring chaos and destruction to the world. The world is panicking, and as a sacrifice to the demon lord, they decide to send 1,000 girls to the demonic island, Shina Dark. However, in Shina Dark, all the legends are lies. Exoda does not sleep with 10 girls a night, and keep the others prisoners. He does not lust for girls, he does not want to cause mass destruction - he simply wants to live in peace. So when 1,000 girls suddenly show up in his island and refuse to leave, what will happen to Exoda, who simply wants to be left alone?

i really loved satan's character especially the "Feared and hated by the world" part that contradicts his personality i really hope that starting from the next arc the story would focus more on satan himself and not the princesses. i think that this story's plot is quite interesting and i hope to get to read this manga till the end.

I just read the third volume, and it was really nice.

I don't understand why you say it's boring, okay it's not a 100% action manga, but it is very interesting.
I love the graphic style, the story is going on well in this third volume and I can't wait for the following chapters ^^.

No really, I really just like sympathetic stories about ostensibly evil dudes who turn out to be awesome gentle mild-mannered amazing AND secret kickass.

I also like that for an ecchi manga, the girls are very smart, independent, capable, and strong. A lot of the focus in the story is a considerate portrayal of how the two princesses grow into themselves, and I really appreciate how complete characters they are in and of themselves, and not just a booby-bag for the protag to try and bang and get panty-shots from. All in all, this manga is really respectful and feminist, which I really love.

Something different

Shina Dark is about many things. This manga touches on topics as diverse
as politics, religion, prejudice, personal growth, etc. It does all this
in an extremely light-hearted and somewhat self-mocking fashion, with lots
of jokes and RPG references. This is a manga that tackles serious topics
without taking itself seriously.

One thing that Shina Dark is definitely *not* is a typical harem romantic
comedy. I don't think the 'harem' label in the genre tags is even
appropriate here. Yes there are a lot of girls on the island, but there's
not even a hint of romantic development (well, at least not until the very
end of the 4th volume, but it still remains to be seen where the author
wants to go with it). If you want to read that sort of thing there are
tons and tons of other series you can try. I do wish reviewers would stop
criticizing this manga for not being something it was never intended to be,
especially when the author is actually trying to do something unique and

Shina Dark is far from a perfect manga. It does jump around quite a bit
and can be hard to follow. The off-beat humor isn't going to appeal to
everyone (though I like it). This is a quirky series and the chapters can
be hit-or-miss sometimes. But overall I still really enjoy it. The jokes
can be quite funny at times, the characters are endearing, but most of all
it's the unique take on a common premise that I love.

I can't claim that everyone will like this manga, but give it a chance.

is the devil really the main character

it seems that the devil doesnt really matter in the story. This is more a manga about relationships/slice of life than a harem, which is what most people have been calling it as. It seems more political and the main characters just so happen to be alot of women.

edit: this was only until chapter 11

Good Manga

At vol 4, the story and romance begins to really show. This manga is like a rollercoaster ride, it can get very serious but then turns around and does something light-hearted.

If you like harem's and comedies, this is highly recommended. Each character has a high degree of dept and plenty of room for development. Most importantly, the main hero, though sometimes get into cliche harem situations, is a very likeable character. He is not a wuss that is common in many other series.

The only problem is that they place random fillers into the manga. However, they fun and gives us a breather from the main story.

I cant wait to see what happen next to the island, the romance, and the political development.

This is a decent series. I think it is funny that Satan is some normal dude and everyone thinks he is the worst. Pretty good so far, need to give it time to see if it gets really good.

I usually hate all harem manga (other than some Tenchi and a few others); with the whiny, bumbling protagonists that all the girls seem oddly attracted to and throw themselves at. But I actually like Shina Dark. The first thing I like most about Shina Dark is the fact that the girls are actually independent and have some degree of intelligence and not complete morons who bend over backwards for some stupid oaf who "breaks out into hives when a girl touches him!!"

I admit at first I hated it because I was a little disappointed that Satan wasn't a smooth ladies man, but eventually I started to like how he is really powerful but would just like to be left alone in peace.

This series is simply amazing. It introduces a positive fan-service and displaying emotional scenes that depict the life of an all powerful. The fan-service is a plus that ties together a fantastic story with scenes that make a reader want to cry.
