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.

about the eroge similarities....

well having played a few eroge in my time and allthough its not exactly same scenario ( but quite close in a way ) ever heard of "Come see me tonight 2" ? (if not read this link ml?counter=1) It's an eroge that puts u in the shoes of a shinto priest to be inheritor of a shrine and responsible to choose between 4 mikos ( shrine maidens) the one that will preside on next festival as main dancer but also as primary miko ofthe shrine that will marry to you. I could say that well it has a lot of similarities but there they just end and well unlike the eroge i mentioned this manga has a lot more character development plus the customs and the way the islanders respond as a closed society plus the comic at times relief of the curious teacher that in a way studies them customs like a national geographic photographer in a national african park do add a lot more to the basic scenario. That and the amazing art specialy when sceneries wide views are shown or underwater scenes add for me to the respect i have for that artist.Allthough of course it doesnt surpass in plot Ai yori Aoshi that i still consider one of the most romantic manga i ever read that include a touch of slice of life - the others i d' mention are Yume de Aetara, Nana for its realism, Nana to Kaoru for managing be so romantic even though it explores also the kinky perversions that are also a facet of the sexual aspect of love life of a pair, still i give it an 8 for the effort of fleshing out the emotional turmoil of the characters as well the fact that while the guy is extremely lucky being in such a position (as is the guy in the eroge) he doesn's act like a jerk and he takes into account the feelings of the 3 girls (kinda like Kaoru in Ai yori Aoshi, a good guy overall).

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.

read only 9 chapter and got very interested
though the art wasn't that good. It gave alot of question that wish to be answer
also it present a mystery about the tale of the god.
So right now i can say read it thorugh chapter 9 and then you should judge it ^_^

This is one of those mangas where everyone falls for the male main character when in fact there's not one thing exceptional about him at all.

What really gets me though, is oviously there is somthing going on that may noy be on the up and up and the main character doesn't seem the least bit concerned about it. I mean he doesn't have one ounce of curiousity about whats going to happen to him and thats too hard to believe. given the clues he's. Een given, i think most guys would find out more about thier fate before agreeing to this adventure but he doesnt seem to care at all. it hard to accept.

This is first..i thought it'd be a plain ecchi..then I everyone's attitude towards him pissed me off for a good while I kept thinking to myself why he doesn't speak up..and then all of a sudden something even weirder happens...and all in one volume...well..I dont expect much from this...its not as good as i thought it'd be..and its not nearly as good as Ai Yori Aoishi despite what some ppl are saying

It's really great so far, and the quality is brilliant as always from Solaris. Story so far is quite funny and mysterious, and the artwork is amazing; I expected no less from Fumizuki Kou. If this is even half as good as Ai Yori Aoshi is, it would deserve a 10. I can't wait to read more.

It seems good, hoping it doesn't stay true to all them clichés of this type of manga with a foreseeable pairing of the main character.

all i have to say is that i like they way the story is told. its a harem so we know that we are in stored for some laughs and some peverted moments. THe thing is, i hope that when it is time to end the series that the author does not rish it. that is exactly how i felt with Ai yori aoshi.

I'm not a fan of harems. This one is ok so far. Nothing really stands out about it. Art is decent but not impressive (except for first couple pages of vol1) compared to other mangas nowadays. Eyes are kinda freaky. Characters don't have much personality. The main girl had potential but that quickly faded. At least the guy isn't a loser. It's kinda obvious who he'll end up with. I'm just hoping the journey will be more fun and exciting....
