A virus wipes out all males aside from the ones in cyrostasis. Only 5 of those males are immune to said virus, so you can imagine it's a mix between a hunt for the cure and a baby-making free for all. There's plenty of fanservice as you'd expect and the whole mystery aspect of who made the virus is somewhat interesting, but slow in progression. Three of the five males are active so far, and the perspective shifts between them. The main MC is trying to stay faithful to his girlfriend while desperately searching for her and a cure to the virus. He's kinda wimpy, but I appreciate that his main purpose is mostly progression of the mystery aspect of the story. If you want fanservice and harem action, the other two active males fulfill plenty of that anyway.

Also in regards to rnoldstrife's comment. Rather than blatantly sexist, I think you're missing the point that the virus was clearly man-made. Going from that, the person or group doesn't want a cure to be found, so obviously they'll try to suppress attempts at research and silence people that come close to the truth. It's not that women in the story aren't smart enough to find a cure, it's that anyone smart enough to know what's going on is either hiding or has already had a bullet put in their head. Also the MC is not some random kid, the university professors call him a prodigy in the first chapter.

Painfully Sexist in a most painful way

Let me preface the review in that I love harem and ecchi series. For example I like Freeing, Maken-ki, To-Love-ru, Monster Musume, Sora no Otoshimono, etc. the list goes on and on.
But! this one is even to sexist for me in a different way. Alot of time a series can be pretty sexist but it's done so pretty comedic or blatantly obvious. This series does so too. The premise itself is after all you are one of the last few guys and you have to have sex with as many people. That's blatantly obvious. I can live with that, I usually even like it.

What's terrible is the seemingly unintended sexism that basically sets it up as women are incompetent. They literally can't be scientists or other typically guy things. Civilization was nearly destroyed not because of the loss of 50% of the world population. It ended because guys weren't around and women apparently can't pick up an instruction manual on how to use tech.

It starts as a joke but as the series got further and further it became background stock in a way that doesn't seem like the author even realizes it's a joke anymore. The world building is setup that a random normal male kid (not secretly a genius, or even really a specialist) has a better shot at researching a cure than the entire leftover population of the human race. That narrative that because you're a girl this kid is basically better than you because he's a guy is pushed directly and subtly over and over again. He's also painfully pathetic as male lead in a harem goes, so it's even worst.

The only thing going for it is the art. You're best off just ignoring the words and looking at the pretty pictures if you must. But this series is trash and not just a trashy harem series. But just a piece of trash.

First I am borrowing drunkguy's review in toto:
"The story is trying to create the dumbest dickless wonder in the history of manga. Don't bother thinking too hard about the plot. This is a fanservice vehicle. Nudity is frequent since every chapter is pretty much about trying to get him to have sex."
-------------
I've noticed over the years that Japanese men have an absolute inhibition against having sex except in a narrow collection of circumstances (love, marriage, or in Soapland). Either that, or the manga publication business requires its authors, for some reason, to portray Japanese men that way.

So this manga simply shows that absolute inhibition (you might call it an "immovable object") in conflict with an irresistible force (womens' desire to have children to carry on the race). We all know which side would win in the end, so why bother to go through the motions?

Oh yes, in order to show a lot of near-naked women, of course.... It does a really fine job of showing the women. If that's what you're after, this is good.
-------------
PS: It occurs to me that this manga might seem less pointless and silly to Japanese men. If they really are trained growing up to have the absolute inhibition against getting sexual except in the few permitted situations, then the male MC's bizarre struggle against Doing IT may seem more real to them.

Hits the nail on the head regarding radical feminism

An absolutely perfect dystopian and disturbing glimpse of what would happen if the majority of males were killed off overnight with 3rd wave feminists in control of the world with radical feminists as the ruling party. A world only the SCUM Manifesto writer Valerie Solanas would approve of.

Chapter 8 is literally a radical feminist's dream of killing all but a small percentage of males who are then used for reproduction purposes, whether they like it or not, i.e. mentally damaging rape.

What I Gather So Far (Correct Me If I'm Wrong) - Spoilers Up to Chapter 6

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The main protagonist due to some sort of illness sleeps for several years. When he awakens he finds that the world has changed drastically. There are only a handful of men that are immune to a particular virus that effects men and only men, which has resulted in over a billion deaths. The main protagonist is told that because of this, it is important to create children that could potentially carry the future. Blah blah blah we see some guy who wants to do just that (he doesn't really have any particular skills or intelligence, however, he's seen as a god because of his penis). Anyway, he doesn't really matter that much because he's basically equivalent to a dog and I don't know why that type of character was introduced in the first place. It seems the author is unsure whether he/she wants to write a hentai or write an actual interesting story. The main protagonist, however, is still deeply in love with his childhood friend who seems to have gone missing. She was working on some kind of antivirus and the reason for her leaving is unknown. So when a lot of people who read this manga say that the main protagonist is not really a "man" because he won't have sex with random girls, it's because you aren't really looking at the overall story which, mind you, does have its faults. First of all, the main protagonist himself brings up the fact that even if he were to have sex as much as he could, it would only result in approx. 100 births/year which would not solve the global problem fast enough. While this is happening, many women are suffering and the world is in complete disorder (politically, economically, etc.). So finally in chapter 6 the protagonist says that he will find a cure. That might sound too unrealistic, however, it's much better than behaving like a complete animal and only having sex. It's actually much more realistic to find a cure because in chapter 6 we learn that there are still over 1 million men who are still alive yet unconscious so as to ward off the virus's effectiveness. If they can be cured then that would be MUCH better than the alternative solution which isn't really a solution at all. There are still quite a lot of things that we don't know about the state of the world outside of where the main protagonist is. He is also yet to find his childhood friend who was also working on finding cure for the virus and could have even found it by now. I understand why people are frustrated at the main protagonist not having sex with all the women and what not because that's kind of how the story was first set up. It makes you think that that's what the story is going to be about. A story like this takes time to see whether it's actually good or not because right now, it almost seems like the author can't decide whether to have an actual plot or not. I'd like to think so based solely on Chapter 6, however, even then I'm not completely sure. We'll have to wait and see where this story goes.

I think i remember watching a similar plot but different conclusions in one episode of "the outer limit".
i think the authors realized that they have to explain why slow sexual matting is chosen vs artificial insemination, but the argument was weak
also, it was alluded that females started pillaging and created gangs and stuff, I'm not an anthropologist, but i wonder if it will be the case.
well, beleivable or not depends on the focus of the series, i guess this one focused about harem, similar to any novel from past centuries about castle intrigue and harems, they didn't need to justify the setting, here this amount of explanation should be enough, taken into account that it's not the main focus.
About MC refusal to have sex, i find this normal, he's in state of shock and denial,
also, personally, i felt fear when a woman confessed that she liked me, i was myself in shock and complexed about it (given I'm a bit perverted), but i think lot of people overestimate their gregariousness and unless they had experience dealing with lot of people and specially the opposite gender, any talk about alpha-male like behavior is unrealistic, otherwise why alpha-males are rare and sought after?
Also, if a random female was so aggressive (not only females) towards me, I'll be suspecting of her motives.

I judge this from a different POV   
Rating: N/A
by aznluck
May 29th, 2016, 10:52pm
Read from from chapter 1-3, my opinions is base on these chapter so far.

First off the comment from bobIV123 perk me to read this manga, while drunkguy comments on the other hand where I may agree with his/her un-spoiler section of his/her comment but I don't like how his/her reasoning in his/her comment in the spoiler section that lead to the un-spoiler section comment.

OK, now to me and my opinions. I will judge this manga in three different way. First I would look at the story and/or plot. Next I would judge the manga base on the Author and/or Artist past works history. Usually I don't judge a manga base on this but I will state why later as I type this. And finally I would try and see if it make sense within that story logic.

Another comment I like to stated is that whoever input the genre and/or categories for this manga either has the hard copy and are reading ahead or they just guessing. Either way, for me at least I couldn't find the raw or a translated version of another language of this manga ahead of the already translated chapters (chapter 1-3). So I just like to point that out.

Like I stated, what perk me a little to read this manga was bobIV123 comment, so I read the Description box here. Didn't really help. Then I click on the Author and Artist button to see if they have past work that may help me decide whether to read this or not. When I look up the Artist, his past work were almost entirely "hentai" genre. This give me an early self pre-judgement that this manga may not have a good story. Why you may ask I would think this way? Because almost all the manga I read that that has hentai genre Author and/or Artist move to normal shonen or seinen manga genre with Ecchi/Mature/Adult theme. It always end up borderline or crappy that no different from "hentai" genre itself in those Ecchi scenes. Very few mangaka can do it like normal but most will end up like my comment above if they move from "H" to "normal". With that stated, So far (chapter 1-3) seem normal for a Mature/Adult in term of art and interaction within those chapter. This may change later in the later chapter (I assume) but for now it look normal.

Now on with my comment about the story/plot with a bit of comment back on drunkguy spoiler section reasoning.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Frozen for years, the first thing he does when told the world is falling to ruin due to an ongoing pandemic was to run outside in a blind panic.

(my comment): That a normal reaction which is to panic; the other normal reaction would be denial, cry, get angry, go violent by breaking thing. running way to nowhere but here, hide, or go crazy. Of course they calm down later. A no reaction would be abnormal. The reaction above is the MC is in denial, because when he went to deep sleep the world was fine and he remember it like yesterday but for him it probably is but in reality which he also know is that he slept for 5 year. How you feel if you were told everyone you know and love is gone the next morning. The answer would be some type of reaction that state you care. A no reaction or an indifference reaction answer would be like you don't care.

He is being asked to have sex with more willing beautiful women than there are seconds in a day to help repopulate the Earth. His reaction is pure terror. He isn't gay. His genitals supposedly work. His excuse is that he wants the woman he loves who went missing during the pandemic.

(my comment): I wouldn't call it pure terror but I feel that he (the MC) don't agree with what at hand because he still has the mind set of the past. Come on, it only the 2nd day he woke up. Do you think a normal non-pervert male to jump on the band wagon and go along with the ride.

The author goes out of his way to give every reason why he should have sex ASAP. Nothing is stopping him from having sex and searching at the same time except he claims he won't be in the mood. When he isn't panicking, he mopes, whines and feels sorry for himself.

(my comment): I would agree with the first sentence but the 2nd second sentences to me look like fallacy and need to be correct. To me the 2nd sentence is more of an opinion than information.

To round it up; if you were in the MC position (Assuming you not an overly sexually active person, a sexual predator, or somewhere along these line that get you mark as a pervert or worse). You have to think it through even if you have to agree with the world situation later because that the world reality and situation.

I do however have nagging issue that was mention by bobIV123 comment but not with the same word which is with how almost every female human blush just by the sight of a male human present. I think the mangaka wrote this on purpose because I couldn't think of anything logical and rational (even when I base on other manga with post-apocalyptic or post war situation, expect hentai genre world reasoning). They (the female) should be more worry about what to eat then reproduction because it been stated that most of the world population is in poverty. Even in this situation, a normal reaction from a female would "A Reaction" of some kind but blush would be a "No". If you see a rare animal (aka male human alive) for the 1st time in long time, of course there would be "a reaction" but there will be no blush. That I feel is the mangaka trying to throw normal reaction reality out the window and into borderline-h or H reality world. That blush is like telling the reader that those female is ready to go and to me I say "come on! that the creativity of an hentai genre world. Is that all you got? don't you have a normal reaction without a blush"

Well overall this manga it more hentai like world trying to be normal Seinen world. It trying (base on chapter 1-3) Read it if you want to after reading my and all the other comment here.


Counter comment to drunkguy
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
just a few counter comment on the new spoiler comment

--Him running out the car and into the urban wasteland was as stupid as a kid sneaking into the zoo exhibit of an angry gorilla.

(my comment): Are you talking about the recent news in Cincinnati Zoo? If it is then my comment about is that is that child did something stupid and part of it blame also go to his parent for not watching the child. Angry Gorilla? No, from my POV of that release video it more like he found a play thing and drag it around. I may not sound very nice but that how I interpret the video. An angry gorilla would show it teeth and attack. Ok enough with that.

"Healthy men need to release their sexual tension whether voluntary or not. With the opportunity and reasons this MC has been given, normal reactions may vary but instant and absolute rejection of sex is not one of them. Most do not prefer their right hand to the company of a beautiful woman but this MC appears to be an exception."

(My comments): this is only comment I have comment about. let me break it now for my opinion.

--Healthy men need to release their sexual tension whether voluntary or not.

(my opinion/comment): Not necessary unless you expect to have sex, this comment is not even a general norm. This comment sound like all men is thinking about sex 24/7 and need to release it somehow. Ehh No.

--With the opportunity and reasons this MC has been given, normal reactions may vary but instant and absolute rejection of sex is not one of them.

(my opinion/comment): I would do the same as the MC but for a different reason. I would refuse at this early stage because it only the 2nd day he woke up, come on. Don't care about why MC refuse but it normal to refuse at this early stage for anyone. But If the MC continue to refuse at later stage given the situation the world is like; then he better have a damn good reason to refuse or I going call him an idiot and |)um3@$$.

---Most do not prefer their right hand to the company of a beautiful woman but this MC appears to be an exception.

(my opinion/comment): I don't understand this sentence expect the last part.

Rebuttal to aznluck
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Initial panic is indeed normal. His freak out in the car was not a normal reaction. He knew the world outside still had an ongoing deadly pandemic before he knew that he was immune. He saw law and order had deteriorated to the point he needed bodyguards.

Some anger, bargaining or even fainting would be normal. Him running out the car and into the urban wasteland was as stupid as a kid sneaking into the zoo exhibit of an angry gorilla.

It is one thing to refuse sex but his every reaction to it was a fight or flight response. The first introductory page was him with a look of terror, begging not to choose a woman to have sex with him. When his handler attempts to seduce him, he panics and rejects her, telling her he's "not in the mood," before going into a depression. There isn't one scene talking about sex where he doesn't shake in fear, cover his eyes or ears, beg or scream at his handler like a petulant child.

Healthy men need to release their sexual tension whether voluntary or not. With the opportunity and reasons this MC has been given, normal reactions may vary but instant and absolute rejection of sex is not one of them. Most do not prefer their right hand to the company of a beautiful woman but this MC appears to be an exception.

Update:
As I continue to read this, it seems to me that the fan service is laid on way too heavily and the mystery aspect is progressing painfully slowly. I am doubting the promise I saw in the first couple chapters of this. I really can't recommend this, there's significantly better mystery manga out there, and if you're looking for something sexual you'd be better off with hentai.

Original:
Please Note: I'm only 2 chapters in, thus changes in the work may not be accurately reflected here.

Large breasts, some mystery, and presumably some sort of eventual action are basically what this work is about. If I liked large breasts I'd be tempted to give it a 9.

A bit more of an intro (Chapter 2 spoilers):
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Basically, literally every living male on the planet died from a virus, so the world went to hell and is now entirely inhabited and run by women, it is also falling apart at the seams and a lot of (fairly futuristic) technology has been lost (we're talking automated cars, farming, and manual labor, not molecular assembler level tech); they're just scraping by with the necessities. The MC and like 5 other guys were in cryo-stasis and turned out to be immune to the virus, it turns out that the only way to produce viable offspring is via sex (no artificial insemination), and the MC's sort-of girlfriend is missing (it's been like 5 years since he's been in stasis, she dropped off the face of the earth after 3). Almost every woman the MC comes in contact with is (not necessarily super horny but) in the mood, and the government wants him to start preserving the species.
