First of all, this is a smut manga, not hentai (completely different me)...but it might as well be considered hentai :/. Secondly, I don't think that the sex bothered too many people who chose to read this story in the beginning, because most of us are pretty familiar with smut already ^^.

Yes, women who know how to defend themselves can still be raped. I will not dispute that at all (or the fact that this manga artist has a bit of a thing for forced sex anyway), but the thing that bothers me is that putting 'karate girl' in the summary is very misleading and seriously annoying. The martial arts are not simply about physical strength (or being a supposed tomboy), but striving to achieve physical and mental harmony. Calling her 'karate girl' makes it seem as though this girl is quirky, strong (in both senses of the word), and a bit assertive....but she isn't--not by a long shot. She's just silly and doesn't think things through 95% the time. I can understand the fact that she's just a teenager and still learning the ropes of life, but was very illogical for Seri to BE illogical almost all the time. She's old enough to know better, people. So, long story short, if putting "karate" in the summary was just meant to catch the reader's eye....then it needs to be taken out. That's actually as far from the truth as things can possibly be :/

Also, I highly doubt that anyone is taking this manga seriously. They're more than likely just venting their frustration about the things that they didn't like about the series. I just don't get why it is that when someone(s) expresses their distaste for a manga that they're instantly accused of "taking things too seriously." That's usually not the case at all. If you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't. Nothing wrong with that.

I have no problems with weak characters, but I have a big problem with foolish ones who put themselves in a constant state of affliction when it isn't even called for; and Seri did just that...time after time after time after time. I've read tons of smut manga that have pulled off emotion, drama, and mature romance without being as silly as this stuff (seriously). Quite frankly, I found this series and all of its characters completely and utterly ridiculous.

That's just my opinion though. To each his own.

1. Don't read it if you don't like the summary- it says clearly that there is lots of sex. "Oh, it had too much sex." What did you expect from smut?!
2. Manga is for entertainment, not literature. "It wasn't realistic at all!" DUDE. It's fiction! It's not like it had a theme to make people aware of rape and protection-- it's a thought-up plot line.
3. Plot line. The idea of karate catches someone's eyes, but the real moral in the story is about being in true love; you only like sex from the one you love. Obviously, only someone who has experienced simple sex and love sex would understand that, so that is why the mangaka portrayed a girl experiencing all the sex. It'd be ridiculous to have a girl "in love" if she'd only experienced it with one guy-- you have to see what's there to offer to determine whether or not you like what you have!
4. Romance. Manga about cute puppy love only happen to naive pre-teens or in fiction. Yes, this manga is indeed fiction and chances of these events happening to someone are very low. However, the EMOTIONS expressed are much more similar to girls in real life.
5. Rape. Just because she knows karate, that doesn't mean she can get rapists off of her. SHE'S A GIRL. It'd be more weird if it were some shrimpy dude without muscles trying to rape her. What's more important than the fact that she couldn't physically push them off was the fact that her body became aroused. That was the whole point of it.

So all in all, you don't determine how good a manga is based on the events, rather the REASON the mangaka chose those events. What also bugs me, in some cases, is when people say that you'll only enjoy it if you like sex. That is hentai. I respect people who don't see the art in smut manga, and I respect those who do.

I rate this manga a 7/10. I DO NOT recommend for people who want simple, cute stories with lots of comedy. Neither do I recommend it for people who only like more violent, intense, tragedy or drama manga. I recommend it for people who are in between. The people who like things more real but not as intense.

come on! too much drama, and rape for a highschooler!

yeah teenagers got their romance problems, like the b*tch standin' next to me lookin' more nice, the weigh of the girl...

Even rape, but the kind of rape you'll get if you drink too much or if a bartender gives you something in your drink.

I'm sick of readin' this kind of mangas were the girls are all goin' for sex, are they sex addict or something! if it was 'bout rape.

the romance wasn't cute and too dramatic. the mangaka should go to a club at night, or have a party just to watch how teenagers are!

At first it catched my attention but after a while it got pretty boring.Just for the sake of ending reading it I did it, so yeah, after reading the whole thing I can still, and even more say it's pretty crappy -_- I give this rating because if you're looking for tons of smut, there you go, that and/or you love foolish/stupid females that go along with rutinary rape ._.

Sorry, but I just had to comment on this manga and it is a lot. What Hanjae (the guy below me) said is pretty much I would say, "This just makes you try to flip through the chapters faster" or "Obstacles in the way of annoying, clingy women and good-looking guys (with bad taste, if they like Seri's type) would repeatedly pop up and try to tear Seri and Tamaki apart". Sorry Hanjae, I'm quoting some stuff you said earlier but I agreed with you 100%.
ALL about sex, sex, sex, sex, drama, sex, more sex, rape, more rape, Ok.... anything newconfused?? Is it me or every "male" they encounter want to have their "ways" with Seri. I mean EVERY guy. Geez, how horny are they!? I mean sex is great but not every 5 minutes. Anyway, the artwork is good (I have to give some credit at least). Though I skim through the story since chapter 10 or so and had to at least finish the story. This is my opinion but I think the lesson from here is that the girl know karate but can't do #### and the guys abuse karate for sexual pleasure. Hmm.... it make rapers want to learn karate.

I have never been a fan of Minami Kanan's art OR plots (or lack thereof, really), so I'm not sure how the first volume of this ended up on my harddrive. I decided to give it a go, and I heartily regret even bothering. Usually, I'd bear with at least 2 volumes before I decide whether I should give it up or not, but this is just terrible.

Firstly, the characterization is totally inconsistent. Seri is repeatedly referred to, by herself and others, as a "wild girl", tough and rather tomboyish from her karate days. However, not once have we seen her fend off attacks from Tamaki or anyone else. Even if we peg it down to her infatuation with Tamaki, not even the dumbest of people would just sit there and let themselves be undressed and almost raped. Seri throws out the occasional punch and kick, but when push comes to shove, she sits there crying and unresisting. I have my doubts that Seri can even fight her way out of a paper bag.

Secondly, the plot. I'd go in-depth, but there really isn't much beyond what you see up there in the synopsis. Obstacles in the way of annoying, clingy women and good-looking guys (with bad taste, if they like Seri's type) would repeatedly pop up and try to tear Seri and Tamaki apart. It's been done a million times before, and done better; although cliche, a good author could make it feel like something fresh, and tugs at your heartstrings. This just makes you try to flip through the chapters faster.

Thirdly, the art. I find Minami Kanan's art painful on the eyes because there are numerous panels in which the characters' bodies are wackily proportioned (arms too long, hands far too big, eyes and mouth taking up the whole face, etc). Considering the characters are throwing off their clothes in every other chapter, you'd think she'd be better at drawing their bodies, but unfortunately not. To be fair, there are some occasional panels in which Tamaki or Sora look pretty good.

If you're looking for great art, good plots and characters you can like or identify with, then you definitely won't find it here. However, as selenoliber mentioned, if you're looking for brainless smut (rude jerks tearing off the girl's clothes in the name of love, main character almost getting raped every chapter, etc.) and you've already worked your way through all the better smutty stories out there, then you might enjoy this. Maybe.
