Maeda Hachibei is unlike most guys, who lust after gorgeous girls. This pervert lusts after their discrete parts, instead. When he moves to Tokyo to attend school, he finds himself living in a dormitory with five girls, each of which possesses one of the ideal physical features he desires: gorgeous blue eyes, bullet-train breasts, a deep dulcet voice, straight “anime-esque” legs, or a waistline shaped like fine Japanese pottery. How can he manage to keep his wits when surrounded by these women? If you think this sounds like a Love Hina clone, you wouldn’t be entirely incorrect… but Hachibei isn’t Keitaro.

Includes a oneshot in Vol.12: "The Boy Who Heard Too Much".

LOL LARGE amount similiarities with love hina??

-First of all, as a fanboy, this manga is funny, there are some hilarious moment.

-The concept is very original and its the first time i have read a manga that focuses on "Part" fetishes. Oh man japanese people are so creative in an odd way lol.

-Male lead and other male characters mostly are the major element of the comedy due to their "fetishism" and girls are the victim here, of course not in a negative way but as a humour, although i still dont get what japanese people are thinking lol.

- I've been trying so hard to compare this with love hina that i had to re-read love hina and still i dont see any LARGE similiarties. The only thing they share is the harem genre nothing more nothing less story-wise, comedy material and characters.

Overall, fanboys who is into this genre will like it. For fangirls, lol i dont knw what to say. My girl friends commented this manga is definitely for boys because they were disgusted and said extreme fetishism people like that are very scary and should not exists and must be eliminated LOL but they do admitted that this manga is funny but it also gives them the creeps.

I'm still having a hard time to breathe, can't stop laughing! This manga is hilarious!
Only the plot makes you crumble down on the floor.

I would call it a normal comedy. The main character is totally hopless, has many repeating punchlines and sometimes it gets really cute in it's own way. The diffrence is the subject of the story. Body-parts-Fetisches! That's insanely ridiculous. In other words, perfekt for a great comedy!

Well i can agree with most who say after a while to jokes got alittle too repetive. Finally however the end is very near. We are finally seeing some strong character development out of Hachibei. He is coming to terms with the fact that the girls of the dorm are more important to him then their parts. That the part of a person is not what defines them but, who they are as a whole. Already the girls are starting to pull away from Hachibei and move on with their own personal lives. Currently the manga is at its finest and i look foward to see how it ends.

Good comedy (for a harem), good ending

After the first few chapters I wondered how it could become good with such a crazy setup (mainly with the fetishes) but it actually had decent character development for many characters, often with the help of the male lead.
You have to accept some things like they are without thinking about them, though, no real life logics apply to many things that happen here, so no point bothering.

The art was very average, nothing outstanding, nothing terribly bad.

The comedy went way beyond the usual pantyflash nosebleeds, falling into boobs and other stuff you'd expect with those tags, in fact, there wasn't that much ecchi at all, at least compared to similar mangas.

All-in-all, I found the comedy to be quite good, not quite on the level of GTO crazyness, but well above genre-contestants.

The characters were very likeable, that is, if you like (or at least, can stand) tsundere characters, of which there are 2, one is the main heroine and the other also frequently appears. I'd definately recommend you to keep away from this if you don't like tsunderes, especially the lead female is a hardcore tsundere.

The ending:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
As the ending, I consider anything in the last 2 volumes, that is to say chapter 100-119.
I found it to be a good ending, definately better than most mangas, some gripes about it, though.
Starting from chapter 100 the storys of the supporting characters were VERY nicely wrapped up (with the help of the main lead, tightening their relationships), many tearjerker moments, be strong! ;)
The ending chapters are only about wrapping up the relationship between the male lead and the female lead, some comments:
Good stuff: His final confession was one of the best I've ever seen in manga, heads up for that!
Bad stuff: Bringing the ex-bf back again was bad.
After those very good chapters in the last 2 volumes I was expecting an EPIC final chapter, but just the last chapter alone (remember I consider the last 20 to be "the ending") was MEH.
Why the hell did he have to bring back a whole harem of parts, that completely ruined all the buildup towards the last chapter, well at least everybody's happy in the end, including the female lead (can't remember her name no matter how hard I try, despite reading this in only 2 sessions)

This manga is worth reading for those interested in the genre. It does get quite repetitive at parts but, things start changing once again later on in this series. It's also compared to Love Hina by some people, though there are similarities its almost completely different. I actually hesitated on reading this series because of the cover art, but once I started reading it I couldn’t stop. I read all the chapters that have already been scanalated in maybe less than 2 days? I will honestly recommend this series to most anyone who has time to pass. I am really looking forward to reading the last few volumes once they are available

I expected this to be a seriously screwed up manga, but after a while you begin to realize that the main character isn't that bad after all. He actually ends up falling in love with someone. Other than that, comedy is hilarious.

Hm... How else should I describe this manga. It's not so much that he has a large amount of major fetishes, but it's more so that he is an extremely shallow person.

This changes over time, and by chapter 70 he has turned into a rather deep character. Can't wait for the future updates, looks like the drama is about to unfold. It's like a love-flow-chart, instead of a love triangle.

P.S. Does anyone in this world actually HAVE an ankle-less-leg fetish? That just seems a bit

this is definitely a must read, you dont come upon many manga fetish related, and this one is good...
and what makes it better is that there is no Hentai in it, so its just a reg manga about him and his pursuits of the parts he loves...its amazing.

also, i see a bit of influence from his other manga as well, idk what one came first, but its still a great read.

This is the most entertaining manga perv I've seen yet. His obsession makes it totally worth your time.
