Photography is the art to grasp beauty with the one and only tool, a camera. Ooji's dream is to become a photographer that photographs at the front lines of war, to take pictures of historical events taking place in front of his eyes. However, his childhood friend, Sumire, doesn't think that he is capable of becoming one.

In his photography club, Ooji shows his photos to the group, and his upperclassman, Ran, points out that Sumire is a good target to photograph. Ooji manages to get permission to take photos of Sumire, and during his shoot, Sumire notices that Ooji is acting differently than before. Later they find out that one of Ooji's pictures won an award! Sumire congratulates him, but Ooji sees beyond his award. He claims that he learned that he has much more potential than he thinks. Ran, overseeing this, plans to take Ooji to the next level so he can capture true beauty through the lens of a camera!

As I expected

I have pretty much come to expect bad unresolved endings when it comes to harem romance and this title doesn't change that. I'm giving up to this type of manga. It's all build up with no actual progress or development and then an unresolved ending. If I only want fan service, I'll but an art book.

Basically, good manga if all you are looking for is fan service. Very good art and you get plenty of fan service involving different girls almost every other chapter.

Aside from that, there's not much there. The story was somewhat interesting in the first 10-15 chapters, but afterwards it quickly got repetitive. The girls, aside from their introductory chapters, hardly have any character development, afterwards they basically become side characters and are rarely of any significance to anything going on afterwards. Towards the second half, the plot basically involves: new girl introduced, either to cause trouble or in some kind of trouble, Ooji will solve it the usual way. Occasionally, you will have some scenes involving Ooji with either Sumire or Ran, hinting at some development in their relationships, but each and every time, something silly will happen and it's back to square one.

Nothing special here. Yes it's got very good artwork but the story is bland. Never do you feel on edge about who the main character will pick. To me that's the true test of a good "harem" story. Not a one of the character made me feel invested. Then you get to the ending that just ends. Nothing satisfying at all about it. Flat 5 read or don't read it really doesn't matter.

A typical manga/anime ending

I want to give Kimiiro Focus an 8 but once again(like many other manga/anime), the ending has killed a lot of my enthusiasm for the story.

KF is definitely a great harem story in that there is some progression, though there are unrealistic elements, they aren't bad enough to ruin the story as a whole. It was a fun read while it lasted.

While the ending wasn't terrible, it was one of my biggest pet peeves. Completely open ended and with just one loose end to tie up, the mangaka decides it's alright to just leave it, which makes for a typical ending that doesn't stand out at all. If he starts a sequel, I will bump up the rating because this would explain the abrupt and open ending. If left as is, KF's mangaka has lost a lot of respect from me.

This manga sucked. Because I was bored at the time I thought it was interesting, but no. IT SUCKED. The MC totally changed, the first chapter, he was more realistic, but damn, he goes crazy charismatic and woos everyone to his side. The ending isn't good either. There's no point reading this unless you want some fan service. But I like my fan service to be a lesser factor and have a good plot and character development first.

Decent read.

A lot of people doing reviews apparently don't check the genre or tags. The work doesn't try to be original outside of the odd MC. The humor is decent, the situations can be silly and over the top, characters develop relationships at a decent pace. The plot isn't too heavy, and most of the chapters are small arcs themselves. Unfortunately, it might as well have been cancelled - it ends very abruptly (literally no hints of it happening) with no real conclusion, and some of the sub-plots introduced remain unanswered or ambiguous.

It's worth reading if you want something laid back or want to read a slow romance ecchi/comedy type. You should probably skip it if you have to have something new and original (dunno why you're reading manga then, but hey!)

Good, except for the ending

While overall the series is ok, I feel that the ending really leaves a lot left to be desired. The way the ending played out makes me feel like this series was axed more than it was let run to its conclusion, much like the "and they lived happily ever after" of bad fairy tales.

I wasn't expecting much going in but now that the series is finished i have to say its a really good series. The main character isn't some useless twit who lacks any backbone although the ending left some things to be desired the series is worth reading

Great art, great humor, and lots of excuses for streaks and streaks of ecchi pictures. Yes, it gets repetitive, but it's an awesome manga. It's the most flawless harem manga I've stumbled upon so far. Truly underrated in my opinion; 8/10, voting a 10 to compensate.

OMG! This is too MUCH! In a good way of course! I can't believe they even made my favorite idol/voice actress, Hirano Aya(they named her Hirano Ayako in the manga) BUT, being a fan of Hirano Aya, i know that the author used her as a reference! She even had the same mole on her cheek as Hirano Aya does!!! LOLOLOL! Awesomeeeeeeeeeeee!
Anyways, on topic now:
This manga is good, but not great in my opinion. It's about a guy who has a talent for capturing a girls beauty through his camera. And all the girls(of course) fall for him because of it.
