Kazuya Kagami never goes anywhere without the precious Sakura Obi his mother gave him. One day a beautiful, kimono-clad girl named Kiriha appeared before him. Kiriha naturally began to live with Kazuya in his room. Then there's Chisato, Kazuya's childhood friend with glasses and a ponytail, who meddles in his affairs. Soon there's also an overprotective older sister who seems to want to take baths with him. Jumble in a huge-chested priestess, a good-looking sorceress named Kokuyoura, beautiful women, and hot girls, and Kazuya's happy, embarrassing, confusing life begins.

Wrote one of my longest reviews dedicated to Tsugumomo. It's a really, really superb manga but WOW is it not something just anyone should read. AMAZING action, FANTASTIC art, a really strong plot, lovable characters, but then there's the fanservice. I am not complaining about the fanservice, but if you DO complain about fanservice, don't read this. Every body type under the sun from thin to healthy and mature to very young is on display here and often in sexual situations or put through sexual acts. This is the most perverted manga I've read without being porn and without being "thinly veiled porn". It's phenomenal on a lot of levels, but really, step back if this isn't your thing; it probably won't change your mind.

Nipples - the Manga

I only read ecchi manga and I will say, to get it out there, this is a shitty ecchi manga. You know, the ones where the heroines get into compromising situations with the MC, romance blossoms, - regular ecchi shit manga shit. That said, that is only the beginning. After the first few chapters it slowly starts to expand into the smut-ecchi-borderline h genre but at the same time it retains its initial frame. With this in mind you can now look at it and realize how entertaining this manga can be! It pushes the boundaries of regular ecchi tropes while at the same time retaining its initial principles. The art is quite decent (7/10), the humor (both ecchi and base) is pleasant, the interactions between the characters is a breath of fresh air in this genre and the battle scenes are decent as well. The plot is a bit lacking (typical for most manga, in general - 6/10), although intriguing/interesting, and some of the characters aren't being as fleshed out as the manga initially hinted so this manga can still use a bit of work.

Overall I enjoy this manga quite a bit as an entertaining read. Two key factors push the manga forward for me: first, the nipples are everywhere (whether they wear clothes or not) and strong looking - I find this to be the key uniqueness of the series; second, the bonus panel/chapters truly flesh out the characters and the setting - they are not boring and definitely do not seem forced, a testament to the authors devotion to this work.

So ya, if you like hentai nipples and nipples poking through shirts/etc. you should read this. smile

'a boy found a mysterious being that will eventually give him the ability to fight with other mysterious being' you get the idea especially if you have read other manga that is similar to this which. but really, its the humor and the characters that what makes this so lovable. The progression was ok too, from MC accepting his power, given a hero task, doing fillers that actually plays a role later on, and heading to main plot with several twist in the recent chapters. This gives me off the similar feeling i had when i read ushio and tora and with that i can already tell i will have a good read with this

The art was on the above average side when i 1st started reading it and probably it will improve as time goes which it did but not too abrupt. You will notice a feel thing amiss (anatomy is off, body portion looks weird). with that being said i was thinking the art was just 'meh' but somehow they managed to pull off beautiful art during battle sequence (goddess battle), i was amazed since i never imagined i'd find that kind of art in this manga.

Final Notes
the interaction of MC with the cast was entertaining and full of fan service (in fact the author wanted to include 1 fan service in every chapter) but it may not sit well with some as it has nude loli in it, selfcest. But in all honesty, this is rated 'mature' so this kind of elements is to be expected. and so if you are not bothered with such do give it a try, especially if you love fan service in your manga with awesome battle scenes and decent story progression

This series was quite interesting in the beginning. The main character was given a great deal of power, but was often forced to tackle problems that couldn't be solved through force alone. There was a great deal of fanservice and silliness, but as the series progressed a new plot was introduced that had a darker tone and increased the power of the enemies, but still required the protagonist to think about the application of his powers. This lasts until chapter 67. The four chapters from that point are all about power, no tricks or cleverness. This change came rather abruptly and many parts of it countered things established earlier in the manga, I feel that this may be a signal of worse things to come. I enjoyed seeing the tricks and plots that developed before, and will content myself with the earlier chapters. I'm all for a darker tone, but you don't have to throw away what you built the series on to get it.

So yeah...massive drama with volume 14 that ends in a literal in-series hiatus with the villain being put in another realm ala DBZ's hyperbolic time chamber. Then what? Oh we're gonna suddenly look back at how the hero's mother met Kiriha as a child and it's gonna last the whole. damn. volume.


I've put this series on hold and probably won't check up on it for a year or two. It was fun while the ride lasted folks. Wake me up when this crap flashback junk is over.

Been quite a while since I wrote a review or even made a comment here, but man, the complete 180 this series did deserves some attention and was shockingly unexpected. You can make comparison to what To Love-RU did in the end and TLR-Darkness later built on and expanded. I remember reading the first 15 chapters ages ago, it was your typical cliched action comedy, with school life, supernatural elements and some light ecchi moments thrown in the mix. Got bored and dropped due to those reasons. Then, a couple of weeks ago while I was browsing through mangas to read, I rediscovered this and decided to give it a new chance seeing some additional 50 chapters where out. And somewhere along the way, it transformed into a full blown smutty borderline H manga, with nudity and heavy petting that stops just short of actual sex.

No, I'm not complaining, the story is still meh, but at least it has something going for it compared to all the similar manga that tries to tell the same story that's been told a thousand times before, and usually fail horribly at. And lets not fool ourselves, smut, nudity and sex sells, cliched crap doesn't. Want a mind blowing story that sets your brain on fire, or heart-achingly good romance, a comedy that has you laughing constantly, then this manga isn't what you're looking for. But if you want a somewhat cliched supernatural action manga, with harem elements, underdeveloped romance parts, and some heavy ecchi, lots and lots of nudity, then by all means, do give this a try. It's far being a masterpiece, but take it for what it is, a very service heavy manga that doesn't require much thought and sometimes delivers a few funny scenes here and there.

Guess the author god fed up (or was forced to write a story which was far from what he actually wanted to do from the start by his editors, which seems to be quite common unfortunately) on doing some cliched shit that's been done to death, and decided to to a complete makeover, delving into borderline H and mature themes.

A borderline-H harem bathhouse about middle schooler Gary Stu

The manga started ok and has great art but soon devolved into a borderline porno as the humor started to stick to the lowest fruits (tentacle jokes for one) possible and the endless parade of young women managed to form one of the biggest harems known to manga around the Gary Stu protagonist.
The artist even sells nudity variants at conventions. As if even more is needed! The unending battles are complete nonsense because of the godlike powers on the leads part, all the bisexual women and his rapist waify are only there to bathe each other endlessly or masturbate each other to sleep (also used as "punishment") or feed on each others breasts for pages, or... With endless scenes like that all attempts at drama or romance become a joke and the fact the half the women (even some male characters changed genders to female) are "adult loli" with barely censored vaginas or completely uncensored anuses (gotta love japanese censorship double standards) which are spread open, stimulated and at display in most chapters the manga can´t be recommenced anymore.
There is also the selfcest (?!?), the borderline rape, the "watersports" and a (shota) dick or two also show up so what did i say about the low hanging fruits again? The series is neither hateful or vile but reading porn makes way more sense after a few volumes. You will barely notice the difference and the market is flooded with doujinshi for obvious reasons. Re:Monster (7/10) which i reviewed pulls off the godlike Gary Stu formula way better (for now) and Ran to Haiiro no Sekai (8,5/10) is great and excessively well drawn. Both have nudity/sex, magic and properly executed action scenes. I further reviewed Ike! Inachuu Takkyuubu (8/10) and Jigokuren (7,5/10) which are rare good japanese sex comedies. You know what i will be reading and don´t sleep on The Penisman by ISHIDA Sui as i am hardly a prude and only hate to waste my time with circle jerk nonsense as here.

Extremely blunt but Great manga

Ive starting reading this a few times but never really got past the first 3 chapters but finally when i did i saw the Awesomeness i was missing lol. Im mainly talking about the action though, although the concept of spirit wielding is not new, i really like their Obi weapon and how many different creations they can do and how versatile it is; especially after the "Ascension." The story is getting better as it goes and action wise (when it happens) its Really really great. Now for the other 60 percent of it lol, the Ecchi part of it... This has so much ecchi its ridiculous and it definitely deserves its "Borderline H" category in this page. I dont really mind Ecchi and the comedy behind it is great but they do go pretty far with it sometimes lol; i still dont really mind but im not really into all the "lolis" and there is a lot of that. Plus i didnt expect the actions and words regarding the ecchi situations to be so blunt but then again you gotta respect it for not beating around the bush like most others do. Any way my only real problem with this is that i mainly like the main story about the exorcist stuff and the main story is really slow paced and is constantly interrupted by the comedy and ecchi moments so yea if it could focus on that some more that would be great. Anyway as long as your cool with lots of ecchi this one is worth it and shouldn't disappoint action and ecchi wise

Just to add a recent update this manga (around chapter 70), its getting way more awesome. The current arc is getting really serious and the action and art is so damn awesome. I forgot to talk about the art previously but the art is really great and detailed and the action (which i know i keep going to lol) is great. The best thing about the action or fight (is the art of course) but also the really versatile ways they use there weapons especially the main "obi" one. They make that into one of the most bad ass weapons to have. i really want this to get an anime but i dont know if they will allow it with the amount of ecchi it has, they would have to lower it a large degree or something lol. I wouldnt care really if they did lower it a bit cause the ecchi moments are sometimes good (when there not lolis) and there funny but the other comedy, story, art and action are the main draw of this manga to me.

If any series can be called ecchi...

This is a top notch series in terms of art. The story tends to focus on mystery, ecchi and action.

The fighting is like a magical version Green Lantern style combat. The enemies tend to be related to Japanese folklore and gods abound in the story. Perversion levels matches To Love-Ru at times (maybe even exceeds it a bit). Both combat and fanservice intensifies as the story progresses. (Volume 6 is my favorite.)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Actually, judging by the raws, this may qualify as a harem.
If you dislike loli then stay away from this.
