Description
Kazuya Kagami never goes anywhere without the precious Sakura Obi his mother gave him. One day a beautiful, kimono-clad girl named Kiriha appeared before him. Kiriha naturally began to live with Kazuya in his room. Then there's Chisato, Kazuya's childhood friend with glasses and a ponytail, who meddles in his affairs. Soon there's also an overprotective older sister who seems to want to take baths with him. Jumble in a huge-chested priestess, a good-looking sorceress named Kokuyoura, beautiful women, and hot girls, and Kazuya's happy, embarrassing, confusing life begins.

Became boring

Anime was interesting but the way the manga carries on is focused mostly in fan service. Also too many side chapters deviating from original story and some amasogi related ones end in 1 chapter.

Well, this was a rollercoaster. I started reading this manga after watching the anime. At first it consisted of pointless monster-of-the-week amasogi beatings, but began shaping up to be a decent (though quite bumpy) ride with introduction of Sunao and up through the Mayoiga arc… and then the author decided to fuck everything up around chapter 70. Since then it's been an utter trainwreck full of the dumbest cliches possible. But let's approach this in order.

Pros:
- Excellent art, no question about it. Sometimes proportions or relative body sizes are off and female feet look decidedly unfeminine, but generally it's definitely among the best-looking manga out there.
- Excellent and varied ecchi, unexpectedly with actual sex.
- Had interesting morally grey antagonists. At first. Then it turned into hot garbage, but more on this later.
- The flashback with tying-up of past events was quite excellently done.
- The author seems to have toyed with the idea of using weaker and less threatening amasogi for more light-hearted arcs, but seems to have discarded it.

Cons:
- Terrible pacing and bad writing in general. Constant pointless fillers at the worst times, instant anticlimactic resolutions, chapters-long shonen-style battles with attack names being the only conversation. Of special note is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kiriha getting killed off for basically no reason
in chapter 70.
- Shonen-style battles, which got even worse as the series progresses:
-- Major power creep - Ascension at first was something used in absolute emergencies to beat pretty much anything, then turned into a tool that allows for a close fight against a normal human opponent.
-- The fights are decided by power levels and who can scream out the name of the attack harder. Nothing even remotely approaching battle tactics, other than the duel at around chapter 28 (end of anime). This was at least somewhat tolerable when it was just beating up amasogi, but stopped being such when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kukuri got killed
in chapter 70 just because the opponent did a No Sell on her final attack. Now we are in a tournament arc that is much more of the same.
- New characters are shit, old characters are being turned into shit:
-- Kokuyou became essentially a pair of giant breasts with a face who isn't even saying anything unrelated to them anymore.
-- The latest villain is the most cliche-filled Obviously Evil moustache-twirling cackling cheating-at-every-turn raging-when-inevitably-defeated asshole you'll ever come across. Disney has got nothing on our guy Madarai.
-- MC is a Gary Stu with new OP once-in-a-millenium powers whenever the plot demands it.
- The universe is internally inconsistent:
-- Will a given tsukumogami turn into original form or pass out when they lose energy? Depends only on whether the plot (or Plot, as it may be) demands it.
-- Huge importance is placed on tsukumogami needing an external supply of energy, but this is waived whenever A Dramatic Event needs to happen.

I guess it can be read for the ecchi and the occasional decent arc (Mayoiga comes to mind), but overally it's quite sub-par.

Probably the best ecchi comedy I've read, basically because the mangaka does a good job at separating when to use it, you won't get dumb ecchi scenes and jokes in the middle of serious fights for example but there are lots of them in between those moments. Also, the ecchi is way more direct than most other similar comedies, I would guess this may put off many readers thou.
Story is simple and straight-forward shounnen fighting with character growth, nothing too original. I would like a little more consistency on the explanation of Tsukumogamis strengths thou, it's understandable that our mc duo has trouble in the beginning but once they are in sync (given how the author explained things thus far) they shouldn't have much trouble fighting one measly enemy. Likewise, the land-god can detect Tsukumogamis in their territory but only when convenient to the story, why is this detection ability selective? I'm only on ch 50 something so there is much room for change and things may be explained further but I prefer when things are explained progressively as things are presented, when they are explained retrospectively they usually just sound like excuses (unless the author did a good job in his storytelling, not a common thing in mangas).
Chars are decent and Kiriha which is the main comedy instrument is great, it unfortunately goes the harem root thou so that's another minus.
Last, the art-style is good, the ecchi works well and the fights are fluid and entertaining.
In the end whether one likes this or not will most likely depend on the humor, whether it is to each readers liking, likewise with the bold ecchi.

again a completely useless main lead...like why have him there anyway? whenever he does anything interesting its either someone else telling him what to do word for word or someone has possessed him and is controlling him...like just get rid of him all together and i would enjoy this a lot more.

Wrote one of my longest reviews dedicated to Tsugumomo. It's a really, really superb manga but WOW is it not something just anyone should read. AMAZING action, FANTASTIC art, a really strong plot, lovable characters, but then there's the fanservice. I am not complaining about the fanservice, but if you DO complain about fanservice, don't read this. Every body type under the sun from thin to healthy and mature to very young is on display here and often in sexual situations or put through sexual acts. This is the most perverted manga I've read without being porn and without being "thinly veiled porn". It's phenomenal on a lot of levels, but really, step back if this isn't your thing; it probably won't change your mind.

Nipples - the Manga

I only read ecchi manga and I will say, to get it out there, this is a shitty ecchi manga. You know, the ones where the heroines get into compromising situations with the MC, romance blossoms, - regular ecchi shit manga shit. That said, that is only the beginning. After the first few chapters it slowly starts to expand into the smut-ecchi-borderline h genre but at the same time it retains its initial frame. With this in mind you can now look at it and realize how entertaining this manga can be! It pushes the boundaries of regular ecchi tropes while at the same time retaining its initial principles. The art is quite decent (7/10), the humor (both ecchi and base) is pleasant, the interactions between the characters is a breath of fresh air in this genre and the battle scenes are decent as well. The plot is a bit lacking (typical for most manga, in general - 6/10), although intriguing/interesting, and some of the characters aren't being as fleshed out as the manga initially hinted so this manga can still use a bit of work.

Overall I enjoy this manga quite a bit as an entertaining read. Two key factors push the manga forward for me: first, the nipples are everywhere (whether they wear clothes or not) and strong looking - I find this to be the key uniqueness of the series; second, the bonus panel/chapters truly flesh out the characters and the setting - they are not boring and definitely do not seem forced, a testament to the authors devotion to this work.

So ya, if you like hentai nipples and nipples poking through shirts/etc. you should read this. smile

Story-
'a boy found a mysterious being that will eventually give him the ability to fight with other mysterious being' you get the idea especially if you have read other manga that is similar to this which. but really, its the humor and the characters that what makes this so lovable. The progression was ok too, from MC accepting his power, given a hero task, doing fillers that actually plays a role later on, and heading to main plot with several twist in the recent chapters. This gives me off the similar feeling i had when i read ushio and tora and with that i can already tell i will have a good read with this

Art-
The art was on the above average side when i 1st started reading it and probably it will improve as time goes which it did but not too abrupt. You will notice a feel thing amiss (anatomy is off, body portion looks weird). with that being said i was thinking the art was just 'meh' but somehow they managed to pull off beautiful art during battle sequence (goddess battle), i was amazed since i never imagined i'd find that kind of art in this manga.

Final Notes
the interaction of MC with the cast was entertaining and full of fan service (in fact the author wanted to include 1 fan service in every chapter) but it may not sit well with some as it has nude loli in it, selfcest. But in all honesty, this is rated 'mature' so this kind of elements is to be expected. and so if you are not bothered with such do give it a try, especially if you love fan service in your manga with awesome battle scenes and decent story progression

This series was quite interesting in the beginning. The main character was given a great deal of power, but was often forced to tackle problems that couldn't be solved through force alone. There was a great deal of fanservice and silliness, but as the series progressed a new plot was introduced that had a darker tone and increased the power of the enemies, but still required the protagonist to think about the application of his powers. This lasts until chapter 67. The four chapters from that point are all about power, no tricks or cleverness. This change came rather abruptly and many parts of it countered things established earlier in the manga, I feel that this may be a signal of worse things to come. I enjoyed seeing the tricks and plots that developed before, and will content myself with the earlier chapters. I'm all for a darker tone, but you don't have to throw away what you built the series on to get it.

So yeah...massive drama with volume 14 that ends in a literal in-series hiatus with the villain being put in another realm ala DBZ's hyperbolic time chamber. Then what? Oh we're gonna suddenly look back at how the hero's mother met Kiriha as a child and it's gonna last the whole. damn. volume.

NOPE.

I've put this series on hold and probably won't check up on it for a year or two. It was fun while the ride lasted folks. Wake me up when this crap flashback junk is over.

Been quite a while since I wrote a review or even made a comment here, but man, the complete 180 this series did deserves some attention and was shockingly unexpected. You can make comparison to what To Love-RU did in the end and TLR-Darkness later built on and expanded. I remember reading the first 15 chapters ages ago, it was your typical cliched action comedy, with school life, supernatural elements and some light ecchi moments thrown in the mix. Got bored and dropped due to those reasons. Then, a couple of weeks ago while I was browsing through mangas to read, I rediscovered this and decided to give it a new chance seeing some additional 50 chapters where out. And somewhere along the way, it transformed into a full blown smutty borderline H manga, with nudity and heavy petting that stops just short of actual sex.

No, I'm not complaining, the story is still meh, but at least it has something going for it compared to all the similar manga that tries to tell the same story that's been told a thousand times before, and usually fail horribly at. And lets not fool ourselves, smut, nudity and sex sells, cliched crap doesn't. Want a mind blowing story that sets your brain on fire, or heart-achingly good romance, a comedy that has you laughing constantly, then this manga isn't what you're looking for. But if you want a somewhat cliched supernatural action manga, with harem elements, underdeveloped romance parts, and some heavy ecchi, lots and lots of nudity, then by all means, do give this a try. It's far being a masterpiece, but take it for what it is, a very service heavy manga that doesn't require much thought and sometimes delivers a few funny scenes here and there.

Guess the author god fed up (or was forced to write a story which was far from what he actually wanted to do from the start by his editors, which seems to be quite common unfortunately) on doing some cliched shit that's been done to death, and decided to to a complete makeover, delving into borderline H and mature themes.
