The Wolf Guy of fetish pr0n!   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

A manga as horrible as this would have normally been torn apart by me but this one is a truly fascinating case study in failure as everything managed to redefine the word "atrocious" without ever truly being offensive about it.
The backgrounds are very good to get my praise out of the way but the characters themselves are a nightmare and none look their age. They may be competently drawn but the designs and poses are just beyond words and i commit no exaggeration when i now pronounce Yuusuke Higashida as the Rob Leifeld of hentai. No comprehensive narrative can be found either unless we can count barely coherent strings of sentences. Most of the words that come out of the "character´s" mouths are only an excuse to show more naked flesh or to get the girls spread legs.
All of them fall squarely into one fetish or the other too with the nudist twins being the standouts.
Don´t ask me why the "author" decided to chose a horror setting either but it certainly helped to make the series more memorable. The length is perfect too as i would have abandoned ship within a volume and gave it a 2/10 but the length of 2 arbored volumes is just perfect. The author has lastly to come from a hentai circle who thought that he could make a "real" manga and failed so hard that is became good again. Just barely...
The end result at least comes of as sincere so laugh at his failure and the world will laugh with you. I hope that he never returns or he will just diminish his accomplishment here. He somehow managed to make the utterly bonkers Higanjima look like The Thing remake or Parasyte after all. The reviewed Wolf Guy - Ookami no Monshou is another example how not to combine grim and gritty horror with relentless oppai pr0n so check it out too.
Update: He came back and his new one is an utterly generic high school battle manga with no real nudity. Huh.
The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long, and you burned very, very brightly Yuusuke.

first of all let me get the good parts of the manga out of the way so i can rant on how much i dislike it after without feeling horrible for bashing it too much.

the art got a very soft marshmallow-y feel to it, and yes it's overall quite good and the premise is interesting but that but that is all there is.

The rest of this manga is atrocious, dialoge feels forced, pacing is all over the place but usually it have something akin to mach 5, and oh god the "Fan Service" it's EVERYWHERE sacrificing the little tempo it have to shove boobs into your face every 3-5 panels ARGH.

This manga had potential! but as you see it's only 11 chapters, very short for a manga,
So, Is this manga worth reading, depends on if you want to Ass/tits almost every page, then yes, if you are against that stuff, I strongly recommend you don't read this manga.
(even for me who sometimes like fanservice but this was waaaay to much)

Art well.. it's very good, maybe not realistic, but still not like most manga out there. 8/10

Story: well i can't say its orginal, and the most breath taking manga, as they were only focusing on fanservice since start to end, and it's very annoying how the main character is wimpy as most japanese manga characters and only mans up in fight moments(like every japanese person has some samurai spirit in them.) 4/10 due to much fanservice.

characters: Well the manga has many characters but you will never know them as this manga is so short and even the MC is hard to grasp how his mental stability is Ok after seeing so much.
Almost 90% of this manga are female's big chest's.
2/10

Overall it's a 4 for this manga. i wouldn't recommend this manga to anyone even if the art is super good. Why woudln't i recommend it? well it's Borderline H manga TO the MAX.& the story was way to far to belive in such a short time and there's no character devlopment at all almost. & it was wasy to short!!!!

Excellent Art/Horrible Plot   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

Great art, but a plot that had potential and was either ruined because a lack of experience or the author can only draw well. That ending was just horrible.

It gets a 5 for the art alone otherwise it wouldn't get anything higher than a 2.
