Futari Ecchi

An excellent and very educational series. About a newlywed couple who are virgins and their comedic ups and downs in learning how to have sex. Not really a hentai, though there are scenes which can be called hentai. Tastfully rendered taboo themes. A funny "how to" guide for sex illiterate and experts.

When you start it's like "Wow, what a cute love story! And all this trivia, this is really interesting!" But then as the volumes go along it's less love story, less trivia and more sex sex sex (and usually the same boring people in the same boring positions) sex sex sex sex. And then you look at the Total Volumes and realize it's 40 more volumes of boring sex sex sex sex sex sex sex sex sex... If that's all you want, any hentai will do the trick.

I read up to 13 then jumped to vol 30 and nothing significant had changed. Just read the first few and stop.

As seen below there are those who look down on anything related to sex that isn't done in a negative dramatic way and if you are one of them then don't read this. No drama or action here (and thank goodness for that, theres more than enough of that elsewhere). This is a story of married couples centering around one in particular that shows couples growth and changes as married Japanese couple over time with real life references to back up the things that it states.

If you are not a drama-actionholic then you should definitely read this one.

I think some chapters were better than others. It was a little repetitive and I eventually got fed up with the couple, but it wasn't terrible. I enjoyed reading the polls and I think it was informational, though I don't think it was 100% accurate.

I think I would have enjoyed it better if there was some actual development. I feel like they just aren't getting better as time goes on. It's a good thing that Yura is so stupid and loves her husband, because I definitely would have left him after a while. I swear, for a guy that it pretty bad in bed, he sure jumps at every opportunity to get it on. -__-

Anywho, it's still an interesting manga. I liked to skip around a bit, mostly picked chapters based on the title. It's not terrible, like some people say, but it's not that great either.

I'm dumbfounded. I do not know so many thing. I wish I had read this earlier. I pity my ex-girlfriend & how much I made her suffer (without realizing it).
I have never found hentai that is so hillarious & so educational.

I've read a lot of criticism about it, but I enjoyed it a lot. Part of reason is the characterization, sure Yuri (the wife for those who haven't read it) is nearly saint like in her purity and naivety, and Makoto (the husband) is an omega class idiot, but I enjoy how they work together. As to Mokoto idiocy, sure, he makes a lot of mistakes and his libido is through the roof for a guy in his late twenties but he strikes me as being more real than one of those 'there's no fucking way you're this suave" guys that you see in a lot of romance stuff. Also, I admit that later chapters start to get a little formulaic but if you just want to get a little info on sex/sexuality that you might not have known about before then read the first fifty chapters or so.

Bad Sex Education

I read a couple dozen chapters and then quit. As the other people below have stated, after a while the story just gets repetitive. There isn't any real development in the characters or storyline. But actually that wasn't what pissed me off about the series. The manga is supposed to be an entertaining sex education, but at one point there's a character who is sleeping around with many men and not using condoms. She thinks this is perfectly fine since she isn't in danger of getting pregnant at the time, but what about STDs? What about the fact that tracking a women's cycle isn't fool proof for preventing pregnancy? It annoyed me so much that I really couldn't continue reading.

alot of people say its boring but this mangas not suppose to have a huge plot cause basically its about sex and teaching men about it there is a woman's version (futari ecchi for ladies) but i don't think there are alot of chapters(right now) but anyway this mangas useful cause men usually don't have that person that teach you about sex so this manga might be good if your bad at sex or don't have lots of experience

I completely agree too. This is not your usual erotic manga, this is a real guide to sex. Following Makoto and Yura's saily life, we learn about anything that may be ralated to sex. Characters are very nice and "normal", with their own problems and experiences. If you are an open minded reader, give this a try. It's fun, never vulgar, well drawn and educative! Last volume was released on Dec. 2005, volume 30. This series is ongoing and there is a spin-off: Futari Ecchi for Ladies Yura san Nikki. Forget discovery channel.

I hate guys that are like Makoto, I've lived with my girlfriend for 5 years, but I don't beg her for sex I have sex whenever she asks me for it because I consider her feelings more than my own.
