Mad Dog Sawamura is feared by all. His Devils Right Hand inspires terror amoung others... but that doesnâ€™t make him popular with girls. What Sawamura really wants is a girlfriend, and his track record is a little less than admirable.
One day however he wakes up to find that instead of a right hand there is a living human being (only miniaturized - Think "Hand puppet"). Anyway, the little girls name is Midori and she is in love with Seiji (having admired him from afar for a long time).
Midori no Hibi is an entertaining manga about all the situations Sawamura and Midori can get themselves into. Itâ€™s very cute and the character designs are quite good.
Sawamura Seiji; Fun guy... his fighting skills earned him a terrible reputation, but he's actually a nice guy (occasionally). He's a little dense though... fails to realize that there are some girls that actually do like him.
Kasugano Midori; very cute... spends the majority of the manga as a right hand. Constantly can be found wearing handmade "I love Seiji" t-shirts and proclaiming her love for him.
Shingyouji Kouta; A boy in the same class as Midori (was before becoming a hand). He's a close friend of her family and seeks out Sawamura in order to try and get him to awaken the sleeping (full-sized) Midori.
Sawamura Rin; Abusive older sister... she is evil...
Ayase; Fills the role of "girl that likes the guy yet cannot express her feelings for him". Reasonably amusing. (Not cute though...)
Takamizawa Shuichi; possibly my favourite character... this doll obsessed fanboy is great. A little scary though, his obsession borders on unhealthy.
Lucy; crazy American girl who is obsessed with ninja and samurai. (Doesnâ€™t appear in the anime). Gets chased by a crazy American man who amuses us for a chapter before disappearing without a trace.
Very refined. Characters are all unique and possess a wide range of emotions.
Great fun, easy too enjoy. Midori no Hibi doesnâ€™t rely on a deep and meaningful plot (much like Pretty Face) so each chapter is pretty much a self contained amusing episode. Very amusing... this manga lives and dies by its characters... all of which perform admirably.
Check it outâ€¦ itâ€™s cute... funny... violent... possesses much blood and porn (all done in good taste.)

Short Overview by Tripitaka on September 23rd, 2014, 5:50am
Your review reads more like a flavoured synopsis than a full-fledged comment. However, it provides a decent overview without any excess prose. So, good job at that.
