It's hard to write an appropriate review of this type of manga, as it's primary aim is titillation and it's entertainment value is in humor and the arousal of the reader. In that regard it succeeds admirably, and deserves a high mark.

Unfortunately manga of this type also attracts the declamations of cranks. 1500+ people have this on their reading list, 115+ have rated it a seven or higher versus 9 who rated it lower than five; but despite that, all those who felt compelled to comment are the negative minority.
Two points made by the other commentators I feel I must dispute; 1) The girls aren't sluts, sluts by definition have numerous sexual partners. These ladies don't. In fact they're the opposite, they're actually virginal and chaste. They're sexually proactive towards the protagonist, but that's a very different thing to being a slut who would have a large number of partners.
2) The art is great, just as good as Nozoki Ana, but different. Variety is a good thing.

A lot of the comments about this series is negative, mostly saying that the girls are sluts. That's pretty offensive and ignorant. The only time you will find sluts are in hentai manga. Did the author make hentai before? Yes. Is this borderline? Eh. Is the story the best/most original? No way.
Not sure what I was doing with that.

They are virgins. Virginity does not mean virtuous. It means they have not had sex. It does not mean they can't be aggressive, masturbate, or sexually interested.

Well, artwork: Yes, the drawings aren't amazing. They're quire ordinary and at times, the character's faces/eyes aren't very distinct. But each of the girls are different and meant to fulfill a certain type of woman in build and character. This can be attributed to the author's work on hentai where the focus is on character rather than story. So at times, the expressions are very expressive... which sounds contradictory to what I wrote at the start.

Story: Its generic in the sense that a guy is on the receiving end of several love interest. What sets this apart from other ones is that all the girls are aggressive in their approach. Don't expect shy or coy moments, the women are all wolves. This does mean that there are fan service but that isn't the focal point of the story. A lot of similar manga does gag fan service (To Love-Ru/Negima/etc) where most of the fan service aren't influential to the story. In this manga, they are all actions in which the girls are trying to win the favor of the guy.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It is extreme in that they show their panties or various body parts
but the fan service never takes up the whole chapter and easily forgotten once the chapter ends if you don't dwell on it. I guess... its like seeing nudists at a nudist beach.

Characters: At first, they seem generic girls and guys but if you get past the "oh, they're sluts" prejudice its interesting. From the start, everyone knows what they want and how it plays out requires further reading.
Main character-
Kaneda Wataru- Wants to be independent to unburden his mother in terms of finances. He doesn't recall his childhood so the unexpected three fiancees doesn't allow him much reaction. He does get embarrassed but is quite frank with his opinions. So far, it just seems like he accepts the situation but does step his foot down if things get too far.

Kurebayashi Tomo- She's Wataru's classmate, friend, neighbor, and daughter of Wataru's landlord. She loves him but has yet to make a move. She's quite quick to temper due to the other thee's aggressive advances. She's also easily embarrassed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She officially joins the fight in ch.9 and is essentially a TSUNdere


Ougi Tamayo- She's possibly blond and a bombshell.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
As for her personality she's an exhibitionist and yandere. This makes her quite the sadist in ch.7-8 as she taunts her fellow competitors during her date with Wataru. She also masturbates. Which people do.


Aikyou Rika- Typically with twin tails and possibly brown hair, she works as a model.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She shares a commonality with Wataru in that they both dream to be independent. Of the three, she seems more easy going and admits in ch.5 that she wasn't serious about competing for Wataru until then. She also seems laid back and light hearted in her approach.


Mayuzumi Sanae- Petite black haired girl.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She has an odd thought process which shows in her actions and words. She's really strong and really just want Wataru's babies via ch.6. She loves to eat and sleep. In a sense, her love is pure.


Spoiler (mouse over to view)
New girl
Mayuzumi Koyuki- Eh... she's super smart, wears glasses, and has big breasts...her connection to the pact is a slightly funny story and is often a point overlooked; usually only noticed by in mystery novels...but there are tripods too so...eh. As of ch.21 I have yet to feel her necessity to the story.


tl;dr- Honestly, chapter nine pretty much sets the stage. Four girls trying to get a guy, there are service scenes but they all progress the story. Most of them. The service scenes are adult so if you can't handle that...its you. Its comedic in the clash of personalities but honest in its story. There are mixture of approach to romance. But they all love him with all their heart.

6.5/10 because it could have been hentai (for better or worse). The story is easily summed up. What makes it great is the clash of dynamic personalities and approaches. I'm sure there are more serious tones later on but for now, as of ch.21, its alright.

Most the comments are going on that the girls are just sluts and how terrible it is ect ect... but i dont really see it that way. They certainly are aggressive and assertive and their means of seduction can be considered 'slutty' however if you think about it, its not like they act that way with anyone; in fact they will only be like that when its with them main character so i wouldnt really call them sluts or anything. I'm not sayings it's a great quality, personally i prefer more modest girls, but its definatly not something to condemn them over.
I thought the first chapter was quite interesting but after that it was so obvious who he was gonna end up with and the other girls dont even seem to have a chance at all that it just kinda takes the fun out of it.Honestly if there was a reason not to like this it would be the story or the development not the characters

P.S the blond chick can be very scary at times

The art is pretty good and overall this manga isn't so bad if you don't take it seriously, but I had to stop myself from getting angry whenever the girls did something particularly inappropriate. So long as I kept it at arms length, I actually enjoyed it a little.

Pretty much, my point is this: If you're going to read this manga, don't let the blatant sexual harassment bother you too much. Also, consider the author's other works when deciding whether or not it's worth reading in the long run.

I agree with those before me in that the girls are sluts. What I find bizarre is that they manage to be such sluts even though 1) They are only aiming for one guy and 2) they're VIRGINS. How they manage to still seem so loose is beyond me.

PS I find the above contradiction to be ironic; I'm not trying to be ironic/sarcastic myself.

Typical premise (guy who has no memories of his childhood turns out to be the son of a very wealthy family, has promises of marriage with girl(s) from that past and they haven't seen in year reuniting now still in love) with a "twist", if you can even call it that (the girls are sluts, er... I mean they're extremely honest to their desires).

Now don't get me wrong. Having a typical and over-used story doesn't automatically make the series bad. The characters are the big flaw of the series. The 3 girls are some of the most unlikable, irritating I've seen in a harem manga. Seriously. Most harem authors try to make their girls as likable as possible, to please the reader, showing the best side of every girl - which ultimately only increases the main character's typical indecisive behavior. Not here though, the only good things we get from these 3 are 3-4 panty shots per chapter and 5-6 body (mostly boobs and legs) closeups. The author couldn't have made them worse if he tried. Then the main character is a piece of walking meat. No personality or personal will to speak of. The other characters are empty models of characters you've seen a million times before in 9 out of 10 shitty school shounen romcom out there. The only character that's even remotely close to acceptable is the neighbor girl and even she is a character that has been way too overused thousands of times before - plus the author doesn't even try to give her anything that'd make her even slightly unique.

Add to that weak jokes and average art and you get a pretty mediocre series. Not the worst I've seen but it's not really worth your time. The only thing you can take from here is fanservice and if you're looking for that, trust me, there are better mangas with better artwork that will give you better doses of fanservice. What a disappointment this was, considering its rating is pretty acceptable.

I feel bad just reading this. It feels like everything male demographic romcoms shouldn't be. Bad jokes, bad characters, extreme misoginy and distracting fanservice. Do yourself a favor and don't read this manga ever.

The writing is pathetic and the characters are incredibly one dimensional. To call them cliche would be an understatement. And how come the "ladies" are both virgins and sex addicts. And the MC has the personality of a wet blanket. That makes no sense. All the critics in the comments have their points. This is one of the most lazy mangas i had the misfortune to stubble across. Sure i have read way worse series but they usually had more care put into them. Just look at the artists hentai instead. That has to be better. Right ? Or at least feature any form of sex. This series is a joke. And is is on us.

First of all, I feel the need to say that I am a male and in no way a feminist.

Now that that's out of the way, I still do not like how the female "characters" if you could call these one dimensional (save for the apartment girl, though she is only slightly better) figures such, are portrayed. The three intruding girls are such sluts, and I rarely use that term for any female fictional or otherwise, and that's about the extent of their personalities. The blonde bimbo is additionally a huge bitch and the three of them together only show some sense of intelligence by cruelly manipulating the fourth (apartment) girl into their bullshit love rival pact to shackle her to their rules; heck they even forcefully spread her legs to check if she's a virgin! None of the girls are likable or realistic, the fourth one I just pity. All of them are shown as crazy people hellbent on hooking up/just plainly wanting sex with the male protagonist (who is your usual pushover, gutless male MC in such genres).

Heck I have read ecchi/harem manga with better, more respectful portrayals of women and that speaks volumes of how bad this manga is.

Did I mention the blonde is a major bitch?
