Description
Goto Nagi has travelled to the southern island of Okitsushima, and ventures out to see Umi no Misaki, a striking cape jutting out into the ocean. But when he arrives, he finds that there is much more to this cape than a wondrous view. There is something peculiar about the cape, and about the island's inhabitants.

I didn't dislike it, at least not up to the first dozens of chapters that I've read thus far. The story was ok, but like many have pointed out there is not much that's new. I think the story is lacking some kind of unique twists and the main guy just gets everything too easily. This might be why I stopped reading this further. =(

On the other hand, if this is the first of the genre you've come across, then by all means go for it - although really, among the bagillions of similarly-themed mangas out there, I'm sure there's something out there that you'll find better.

This is a great manga, really enjoyable and fun to read.. Fumizuki Kou sensei is truly a masterful story teller and his art even tought it needs some getting used to, I consider to be quite unique and expressive. I hope to see more of this manga and can't wait to for the next chapter and see how this story develops. I highly reccomend it and also his previous work Ai Yori Aoishi.

...of the mystery spread out. Especially Nagi's role in things. But seeing as Fumizuki Kou likes to concentrate on the relationship aspect of things, this should be interesting. And knowing how good mangakas like to vary their character interactions from manga to manga, then we should all be in for a treat with this new venture.

Latest volumes have taken a major dramatic turn.

This series used to be one of my favourite harem comedy story. It actually had romance and the protagonist and his girls are all likable. The plot was interesting but still overall lighthearted. But now it's turned really dramatic and I sense tragedy coming. Quite a mood whiplash from how it was for the majority of the series.

If you are someone who wants to invest their time and emotions on a "happy" harem series I WOULD have recommended this one, but now I'd say wait until the series ends (which I think is gonna happen soon) and then check the latest reviews to see if it ended badly or not.

Love to hate

Here i read person after person putting hate on the main character and the others which is why i felt forced to post.

I love this story for the fact that the guy is not a wimp nor an imbecile nor the typical shounen retard, this makes it one of the extremely few male leads i can sympathize with and root for and not wishing death and destruction upon. I see him as an clear slate so that you can project yourself into his shoes. In my mind I,ve named him Lucky F**ker

The girls are all developed, a hell of a lot more than you get in any other harem, some more than others. Karin is the only believable one though. To me its only her or the first girl he met that are the true competitors and by right Karin should be the one to seduce and win him. For Shizuku to get him would just be wrong, as if a first meeting would mean more than an extended period of time growing to know a person. Too bad i dont find tomboys endearing.

Oh and the art is truly exceptional and makes up for the story being so awfully slow paced.

after seeing this series around a lot, i finally decided to pick it up. i havent put it down. very cool story, similar to a typical harem, but with a twist of religion in it. go ahead and try it out, the characters are hot.

This is hands down my favorite manga. The art is stunning. He writes about meaningful things that really make me think and he portrays such beautiful atmospheres so well. If you're a sucker for island life you may very well enjoy this. Fumizuki Kou does a fantastic job portraying the island and the ocean. This is a feel-good read, for the most part. The ending was perfect, though I would have loved more.

This manga isn't bad. I love the development of the characters and the story, itself, but...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I can't seem to take this series seriously anymore. Everyone has ridiculously round and cute faces, but at the same time, they're having sex, and... I can't help but find it strange.

A typical one...

Let's start with the easy ones first:

Artwork:It's been 9 years since Ai yori Aoshi began, and comparing it with Umi no Misaki i can't find much of a difference on this one.Same faces,same expressions etc.Well most artists stick to their own unique personal style.
Back in 1998 i wouldn't complain,but a harem manga in this time and age could have better drawn faces.The backround scenery is amazingly nice though and very picturesque.I think the artist knows how to draw pretty damn well,but for a reason i cannot comprehend why he/she chooses that style on the characters faces.Maybe it's easier to alter their expressions between funny and serious i suppose.You will get used to them easily though.

Story:It started dynamically but quickly betrayed my expectations as it turned into a typical harem manga where nothing happens until chapter 80 which is currently the last chapter i happened to read.It kinda reminds me of Pastel,not as a story,but it has the same flow.Meaning that in both series you read the story without expecting sth,just so as to pass your time.Ai yori Aoshi surpasses this by far.It had a good plot which alternated between drama and comedy and soothed my mind when i wanted sth easy to read.This one,looks more of a bad imitation of it's successful predecessor in my opinion.

Characters:The usual.Each girl has a different personality so as to have difficulty who to choose,exactly as a dating sim.Two are tsundere of a different kind though and as time passes they become completely dere,other is a tomboy and not to forget mentioning the loli teacher.

Only,for a quick read and if you haven't sth better.I would recommend Ai Yori Aoshi before reading this one.Maybe you will have a different viewpoint and like it more.

after reading the whole manga , i just hope that the protagonist will have a good ending and the girls either . The story is going to the direction which a man must choose one of the three girls who love and have affection toward him but if he choose one,sadly the other two will have broken heart. I just hope that this manga have a good end just like on Honeymoon salad manga that i read.
