Description
The heroine is named Kinoshita Sakiko. She is 20 years old, and a college student. She is totally in love with her 28 year old university professor, Chifyu-sensei. He is tall, moody, and handsome, with short dark hair and sexy eyes. Unfortunately for Sakiko, he always refuses her very aggressive displays of affection. Yet she never gives up. Even when faced with a housing crisis, Sakiko goes to drastic lengths to earn money so she can stay in the area and continue her pursuit of her teacher. However Sakiko isn't very bright when it comes to making money. She actually tries to sell herself on a street corner!! But her price is too high, and no one is interested. Then she meets a guy on the street named Natsuo. He is also really cute, with long blond hair. He is interested in Sakiko, and after one really great kiss, he takes her to his apartment. Things are starting to get steamy when they are interrupted by the arrival of Natsuo's brother. Guess who it is?

Mixed feelings about this...

ON the one hand, this manga had a ridiculous plot that had me muttering "impossible" like an old man, but I also laughed quite a bit (at the stupidity of it all)....

Since this was pretty entertaining, I'll give it some credit.

I really laughed hard at the comic situation, and the drawings. But I couldn't rate it more because the plot somehow did not do it for me. And I'm not talking about thinking that in real life blah blah or so. A manga is fiction, so why take a comedy as a serious fact of life? Never understood those whose take all too serious and thinks that manga needs to be a mirror of real life.
But I still don't think I can be ok with the whole story, her being so stupid (i'm sorry but it goes beyond just naive!!), and both brothers to be twisted like that around her finger. And for what reasons? Sex... Hummm, I know sex is a pretty powerful drug, but hey, there is a limit no?
So well, it's not a bad manga at all, I love the comedy in it, it's just that I didn't like the characters at all! But I am definitely going to check other works from Yoshihara sensei!

This is one of the few mangas where I hate the protagonist.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She was such a slut. And I hated it that she used Natsuo over and over again. I couldn't find one desirable quality with this MC. The guys were annoying too.


I gave this a four for the decent art. But I repeat, the story is so crappy so don't read.

OTT Yoshihara sama mayhem   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

Emphasis on the OTT. I generally steer clear of Yoshihara Yuki's titles because they often downplay the steaminess of the romance and focus instead on overly quirky characters who do things simply to shock the readers without rhyme or reason.

So after finally giving in (having abstained for 5 long years) seeing this titles hilarious summary, I was curious. The first chapter really amused me. Funny dialogues and facials galore. But after that the spoof/irony aspect of the romance started getting out of hand. I sincerely cannot see the point of a romance given the execution of the love triangle and how all characters are so OK with the insanity that passes between them! I'm not dissing the story, only that after a while, it felt more like a sketch comedy show with ridonkulous expressions rather than a steamy romance with tension and longing and angst. And that is odd because the mangaka often draws both brothers in situations which if handled delicately, could have been really epic, but sadly we're only handed out comic relief after comic relief of questionable quality.

I would recommend this to readers looking for more comedy, less romance and maximum inane slapstick.

The only thing that had me going on was the art and the humor, anything else, I'm not much okay with it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The girl handles cheating so lightly and somehow I can't blame the two brothers for it except for them being too casual that the girl is sleeping with the other brother so that the girl and the first brother can do it wonderfully. =_= It's okay Natsuo.

But at least they stopped in the end, but still.


I still can't forget the last part though where Sensei was all big eyed at her.
Even though I gave it such a rating, I wouldn't mind seeing a continuation since the last part was really cute and heartwarming.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
A nice story about the twins growing up would be cute, but maybe that's just my opinion as long as they won't fall in love with the same girl

I can't say I really liked this... The humor is good now and then, but it's so silly you definitely can't find it serious. And Sakiko is so damn annoying!! I don't see how anyone can like her rolls eyes. And sensei gave in to her way too quickly. I mean there was no fun in it. Grr just thinking about it get me irritated. Sigh whatever. Read it if you have nothing better to do...

What I don't like about this manga? The fact that Sakiko persistently chases after a married man, even wanting to become his mistress. Okay, so Chifuyu divorces his wife because his wife was having an affair with another man and he accepts Sakiko's love. That's fine. I don't mind that part. BUT just imagine if Chifuyu's wife is a loving wife and is devoted to him. Won't Sakiko feel guilty for chasing a married man and even wants to become their mistress?!

That's kinda screwed up isn't it?! I know it's fiction and it's not real, but sometimes what we read happens in real life as well you see. Not to mention that she actually slept with Chifuyu's younger brother just because she was a little heart broken. This manga is like telling the girls that it's fine to chase after a married man and become their mistress. Seriously. I'm not kidding at all. This kind of thought is really screwed up.

That aside, the manga is quite funny and hilarious. Especially Sakiko's monkey faces. But I still don't agree about the "chasing a married man" fact. Just imagine those woman who are divorced because their husband cheated on them and saw this manga...I think they're gonna burn this manga and sue the mangaka and the company.

Drawing is just too good, especially in the moments with those caricature faces, it's really hilarious, it makes me laugh really hard and sincere! Droopy eyed brothers! x) It really keeps my attention, it isn't boring, everything is done farcially. From my point of view, one fine shoujo comedy manga, I would recommend it to everyone who needs some laughter after so many tragedies and broken hearts in other shoujo plots. smile
of course, as mentioned before, heroine is quite a brainless character, so maybe you'll be annoyed by that fact. Just try not to get the story too serious, because then it loses its real purpose, to make you laugh, so stupidity is allowed!

If it weren't for the comedy, I wouldn't want to continue reading this. Dropping the comedy, you'll get...adulterer, slut, no-brainer, wanting-to-slap-the-crap-out-of-this-stupid-girl, etc etc etc.

On top of that, toward the end of the manga, the author tried to make a better situation for the heroine, but I figured it was the author's attempt to TRY to justified the heroine's actions.

So this is your typical extreme-love-extreme-hate manga. If you want to read it for the smut and for comedy, this is for you. But if you want a realistic manga without having wanting to kill the heroine within the 1st chapter, I suggest you drop this and read something else.

I'd have wished if by in the middle, she fell in love with someone else.

Edit:
I still stand firm about wanting the main protag to change her mind and fall in love with Natsuo who really loves her. But I guess since it's done with...we can't do anything about it.

The story was unbelievable from the beginning, I guess...So from then on you can't really ask for anything serious to happen. Besides...the main protag was a dumb naive idiot from the beginning...I hate to admit it... /sigh. Of course in the real world, whatever she does won't really work...so /sigh. I don't even know what to say anymore. I'll just get on with the rating.
