Minato is a total loser. He's failed to make it into college twice, he's unpopular with women, and he's unemployed. He seems like the classic-useless-shounen-harem-male-lead...
In truth, however he's actually an Ashikabi--one of a mysterious set of "masters" in an awesome battle royale between hordes of cute girls called "Sekirei."
Since this is an ecchi manga, with their attacks they often happen to... you guessed it--ripping each others' clothes off! Looks like his luck's taken a turn for the better.

Chapter 1-3 are prelude chapters
Chapter 4 is chapter 1 of the main plot.

This manga is all over the place. Jumping from plot point to plot point, the story can be rather confusing to follow. The manga even acknowledges how random and unexplainable it is within a chapter. A redeeming feature would be the overall likeable cast of characters. Although they are extremely cliche with minor character development, they add a fun dynamic to the story. The sekirei each havev different personalities that create interesting scenarios through their interactions. As with every harem manga, I question why of all the guys in the world a plain loser is chosen to be popular. The main character is pretty predictable and your usual harem protagonist, unfortunately. The drawing is the strongest point in this manga. Although the proportions of the Sekirei's bodies are just unrealistic, the drawings are overall aesthetically pleasing and is able to convey a range of emotions.

For starters, this is a T&A manga all the way. The lead couldn't even get into college but yet every girl falls head over heels even though he's a complete dumb ass. For the most part, it's a pretty dumb manga, however, I like it anyway. The chapters are just too short and don't come out very often. I would like to see how the story ends. If your thinking about reading this, I would wait till it's finished then you can read the whole thing in a day.

Absolutely amazing. All the characters are funny and the ecchi is exceptional. The plot is to die for. It had me in tears at points. Amazing all around smile

ecchi is fine by me but the manga makes you feel like the story and characters are just contrivences to fulfill the mangakas juvenile dream of the perfect ditzy woman(s). that may be extreme-but the manga realy does make you question wether theres actualy a story that happens to have bouncing girls or if its just bouncing girls with a story sqeezed in.

Let me make this clear, there's a /TON/ of ecchi in this manga/anime. So for those who cannot stand such stuff, this manga is not for you.

But if you feel that you are able to just overlook at little(somewhat?) problem, then I would definitely reccomend this manga, for it's strong storyline if nothing else. I would expect many females to get put off by the load of boobs that you'll see in the first couple of chapters, but if you manage to get past all of that, then this manga has a load of really great fighting scenes and enough drama and comedy in it to keep you wanting for more. =D

I find the story line interesting in many aspects since it shows the different kinds of sekirei types as well as the personalities of the ashikabi's and their sekirei's. .it also shws us who truly cares about their sekirei and who's only going for the power that one can obtain at the end of this plan.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
It's really awesome for the first like, 100 chapters. But what drew me to this series was that it was utopian, and explored the relationship with the Sekirei, and Minato really well. But since Sakurako copped out and actually KILLED someone (not done to date), to copy the anime, and went way too deep into Yukari's angst, I'm really losing hope for this series. The Yukari part might just be because I dislike angst and Shiina (the King(?) of angst), also because the death of Uzume felt so cliche, so pathetically drawn out, disappointing, and obvious, that it makes me question if Sakurako has ran out of creative ideas. The part about the disciplinary squad (in the same chap) was pretty nice though...
Just, before chapters 106-8, I was giving this series a 10/10, now I'm lowering it to 7/10, good enough to read, but frustratingly disappointing later on...

This series is VERY interesting. If you are truly interested in the storyline then you should find it very interesting to read. I started with the anime and wanted to know how the manga is like and i've been reading non-stop. Since the story is quite interesting then you should consider the extra themes like nice art, boobs and others as a added but essential Bonus.Either way i love it now and forever! lol

Strong storyline that includes great fight scenes

At first I was a bit wary because it's ecchi + harem, a combination of genres I try to stay away from. So I was pleasantly surprised to find Sekirei to have a strong storyline, great fight scenes as well as being hilarious. As the story progresses, we learn more about the Sekirei (their background, fighting abilities, personalities) and their Ashikabi (the bond between the Ashikabi and his/her Sekirei). Bit by bit, the Sekirei Project and what it's really about is revealed, creating a sense of mystery for the plot. The fan service is also a bonus for male readers. With art this beautiful, I would definitely recommend this manga series to anyone (whether male or female) who doesn't mind some ecchi scenes. This manga's well thought out plot has captivated me to follow it till the end. The anime series also follows the manga's main plot quite well, minus a few small differences, so that's also definitely worth watching.

BoOoOobs - huge, big, small, but mostly huge. Defying gravity and biology. Made, probably, of toughest alloys of carbonized steel. Made for combat and bloodshed. And that is it, mostly. Also one loose male - good for nothing, without any proper work. But he was given an important mission - look after em, test em in real combat. Em, which are huge (mostly). Ones who got em attached to is not worth mentioning, because he will go after whatever em attached to. By the way em drawn with love " precioOOous..". And that the great story and tragedy of his mission. Fin.
