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.

It started a bit slow, and the male lead is ok I guess. He was overly-dramatic when confronting the girls' problems/attitudes in the beginning imo. Arbitrarily denying the ancient customs of an island because "It' just not right." Anyway, the situation was handled poorly imo. But of course, they respond to his lame defiance. I'm not a big fan of the *knight in shinig armor* thing I guess. Anyway after the girls warmed up, he seemed more tolerable.

One of the better things about this manga is that the lead pays attention to all the girls. Ai Yori Aoshi might as well have not been a harem because the other girls didn't even seem matter. Anyway, development is more proportionate or equal.

Because of this, the moment I start to prefer one girl, the next chapter(s) make(s) me like another. It's balanced well and now I'm hoping for a harem or open ending. Kinda tired of getting multiple, likable, and lovable characters only to have them left to the side in the end.

Anyway, check it out for yourself.

If you can't stand characters spending forever in awkward misunderstanings and trying to figure out thier feelings for each other, this is for you. The author spends little time with the buildup to the romance (almost too little) and just dives in. It goes at swift pace that very little felt episodic or filler, which is a common probelm in harem. Plot is pretty straightforward, doesn't offer many surprises, but the few taht are there fit well. Each heroine gets her own subplot. One heroine does get more spotlight than the others, but it's definitly not as bad as most other harems I've read. Light hearted read for the most part. Ending was pretty satisfiying and did not feel rushed.

The heroines are pretty cliche and you can pretty much guess who fits into what archtype the first time you meet them. Authour did a good job in not making them boring however. MC does nothing new and is mostly the harem lead you'd expect. I will say that he is not completley spinless which makes him likable to a small degree. There is character devlopment, which does a little to spice up the very "by the book" charcter tropes. There are a few side cast memebers, mostly forgettable due to them having very little spotlight. There was a goofy loli looking teacher that was mostly around for jokes and to give advice to the main cast that I felt didn't do much at all excpet tell reader what was already known and be annoying. Satus quo for a gag charsacter.

Art is very inconsistent. Usally the close up shots of the characters have very good shape, but most of the time chracters are just round looking. Hands are often drawn a little too big, small gripe as it was only noticable in a few full body shots. tons of detail in objects and backgrounds, in some instances it screams at you that it was traced. Though I will say that it was not often where the charcters looked completley out of place.

My expections are usually low for harem, but it givien it's high rating I decided to give this a shot. Defintley worth it in my opinion. Doesn't reinvent the genre, but definitley does things I would like to see more of. Romance that is actually part of the story and not just at the very end. Alos not having a single heroine that takes center stage and the rest be side cast.

This is, hands down, my favorite manga. The art is stunning. Fumizuki writes meaningful dialogue that really makes you think, and he creates a beautiful atmosphere. If you're fond of 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 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 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.
