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.

Feels like a vacation, in a countryside island.

There's quite a few points that the author set out to do and executed it quite well.

1. The island and countryside lifestyle atmosphere are conveyed very well.
2. The relationships between the male mc and his various harem females are executed superbly. The bonds are slowly developed for each female and it explores their various happiness, dilemmas, insecurities and duties as the island maidens.
3. The male MC is actually quite capable to notice the feelings of the various girls around him. He's not dense but also not forceful.
3. Nice touch of soft comedic dialogues that are actually quite funny in its own subtle ways.
4. NO DRAMA. Even without drama, the series built up a good climax with the issues mentioned above.

However, one big drawback is the art. The art for the first volume is amazing. In contrast to the rest of the series, the character designs went from realistic to chibi face with dbz style haircuts....If this series had kept the same mature artistic style, shown in the first chapter, for the rest of the series, it would have been a perfect 10/10.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
