Ooyama Takeru, a young normal yet perverted minded guy, got accepted and now goes to a school that, unknown to him, was where combat and magic is used. On the first day, he meets again after three years: Amaya Haruko, his childhood friend, Kushiya Inaho, a girl who says she's his fiance, and Himegami Kodama, a blonde who wants to kill him. Finding out that there are many girls there that just don't like him, he is told that everyone there uses a special magic ability while using an item or weapon called a Maken. Later, he finds that no Maken is acceptable for him and doesn't know what to do, since in this school the students get into duels that showcase their magic and combat power, to which he seemingly has none.

If you want to read smth:
- with a weak perverted main lead getting into lots of accidental "face to crouch", "boob, ass grab" sitıations while at the same time building a harem
- with lots of females flashing lots of skin and acting provocatively in a sexual sense but adhering to the don't touch only watch policies.
- with lots of wtf and DEM moments
- with pretty art but no story
go ahead and read smile.

Everyone says its generic.... well it is, and whats the problem with that? If the story is interesting who cares if its generic etc... art is great, story Decent, characters although sometimes annoying are good, development so far so good. So whats the problem?

Edit: it has developed quite nicely to bad the scans have halted somewhat.

Yet another boring, generic, excessively ecchi manga done by (surprise, surprise) a hentai artist whose only work to date is one H manga called Tsundero and several H doujinshi. Hope he never does a mainstream series again. (I’m not a huge fan of his artwork, either.)

I find this manga generic. But, evident that this manga is not for people who look for deep plot. if you want plot go find it on different manga(don't know though). not recommended for ones that looking for deep plot

It's really decent manga.
"and for someone rate 7-10 obviously pervert." I still have to read this comment? You´re right to have an opinion, but if someone rate 7-10 obviously pervert? I dont think so. Just my opinion.

for someone rate 1-3 is a normal person. and for someone rate 7-10 obviously pervert.
for me it average story. Good character but the story kinda piss me off a little bit. so 4.5 is better for this manga. and this manga will adapt to anime soon.

It's the same old same old, but a lot less interesting. Atypical unimpressive male lead gets harem of girls to fall in love w/ him. My reviews are usually either scathing or praising, but this manga was just so unimpressive that I don't have any strong feelings one way or the other.

Read Freezing, it's basically the better version of this story. There's more bakunyu, more ecchi, and more action.

This manga can be summed up very simply. Crap story, crap characters, decent art. After reading the first few chapters, I realized I was getting more and more irritated with the stupidity of the story, the idiocy of the characters, particularly the lame main character that all the girls hang on. And discovered that, good art notwithstanding, this simply isn't worth my time. If you're going to look at this, don't bother to read it, just look at the pictures, and skim. You won't miss anything, and in fact, you'll enjoy it more. That should say everything you need to know about this manga.

This series is average, as many others have said. Average story, average characters, very generic in many ways. What made me gave it a slightly lower than average score is a pathetic main hero. He may have hidden potential, but so far, he has to be the most worthless main character I've met in a manga. This is made doubly worse my a story that's moving at a snail's pace. This is a monthly manga, I believe, and after 8 months... they're still fighting the same people, in the same place, with Takeru just watching from the sidelines.

Heck, even his Maken sucks. It can take down small fry, but against more powerful people who have more control, he risks actually making them much stronger AND evolving their Maken into something better. What a crappy weapon.

Alright, this is for alexxeno, Helzagore, and any others like them. (I'm prompted to review after reading the reviews of those two.) Reviews are made for reviews... That means both good and bad and both concise and lengthy.

Anyway, I was literally able to forget each chapter the next day... Maybe the next few hours, and it wasn't for being inattentive. Now I don't mind if something's been done before, as long as it entertains. But it didn't really.

Also expect the annoyingly protective protagonist to constantly step in with his spur-of-the-moment, over powered abilities. It seems like everytime a girl is going to kick some ass, he's going to interfere the moment they get a boo-boo. The manga gives an underlying reason for his actions, but it doesn't exonerate his annoyance imo. (It's like Sekirei with the strong girls and all, but they don't fight. Sekirei's way better imo.)

In the end, the only thing I thought was praise-worthy was the art.
