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.

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.

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.

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

the story of the manga is pretty much average.... the developement of the manga is also pretty average... bascially i can already guessed that this is a harem manga of this one super strong guy with hidden powers.... i guess the only thing good about this manga is the fan services.... the girls are cute too... but in chapter 6.... is it just me or did they seem to gain fat?!... that isnt good.... since their thighs are like super big and boobs not in the good lookin shape....

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.

i like this manga. its not new or unique, but its a blend of some of my favorite genres. only at 3 chapters i cant really say too much, but it has potential. the story could possibly be good. its just a fun read. dont expect anything too complex

The scanlation

This manga isnt breaking any new ground yet but its fairly enjoyable. However the scanlation is rather poor, while I appreciate the effort of the translators I have to wonder if the effort isnt somewhat wasted considering the poor quality of the english used.

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.

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.
