I was introduced to this series when it was called "Samurai Harem", back when Tokyopop was still around and changing the titles on manga. Naturally, I thought it would be another generic harem comedy with fan service out its ears. I was mostly right; it was a harem comedy with fan service out its ears, but it wasn't generic like I thought it would be.
Some of the characters actually have depth, which sets them apart from many other characters in the same genre that are pretty one-note. This isn't to say that all the characters have depth, just some. Even the protagonist, Yoichi, doesn't have that much personality when you really think about it. He's not a bad character, far from it, but it still irked me that he could solve most problems with ease. He certainly doesn't get any stronger as a samurai, and his character growth is barely noticeable. But Ibuki and Ayame, two of the four sisters, get the most development out of anyone and their great characters. But I have to wonder if it's just because their two of the main girls that they got so much attention.
Oh, and the art's actually pretty good. Everyone is designed well, especially the girls, although for a story with emphasis on swordplay, the actual fight scenes aren't anything special.
I thought this would be a series I would regret reading, but I might read it again if I'm in the mood. Went for the fan service, stayed for the characters.

This manga is crap, the girl beating up the protagonist through out every chapter... and every character has no common sense, all the enemy has stupid reason for fighting. All the scenarios of this manga was so frustratingly stupid too. DON"T READ IT!

this is so bad
after reading to chapter 54 then just getting frustrated and ragequitting to the last chapter, only to find out it was just as bad as the other chapters, it makes me wish i hadn't even read it. each chapter is almost identical, with the only difference being the angle of the panty shots. I litterally mean just the angle. how the panty shot happens is literally the exactly the same way. some miniscule problem happens, so someone uses special move (usually yoichi) and then bam naked women appear followed by him getting a raging nosebleed and half getting killed by a woman (or women). every. damn. chapter. Oh and i forgot to mention that the last chapter had no closure WHATSOEVER. If i had actually had to pay to read this manga, i would have looked around for the author just so i could punch him in the nose for making something so shallow.
Is it really over?
None of the main problems were solved in terms of the parents coming back or figuring out any of the relationships. I liked it but i'll feel dissapointed if it ends like this. Hopefully there's a follow-up manga that gives a complete resolution
Liked it until the latest releases.
The series started pleasantly enough, I mean it was no masterpiece but I'd say it was on the same level as Naruto in terms of readability (ie not the best but still entertaining.) but then the latest chapters have just taken a depressing turn and the main characters just seem so flippin useless AND clueless about all the things that is wrong in their world. The male hero is so infuriatingly pathetic it's painful to read.
Started out good...
But quickly became repetitive. Girls who beat the main character comedically gets boring after a while (and the girls here make Narusegawa from Love Hina look like a Saint). Plus, there's no progression to the story at all. Just a bunch of different girls falling in love and lots of panty shots. There's nothing else to really keep the manga going outside of that. It's like Love Hina, but without any forward growth of the characters.
As someone who actually enjoys plots and character growth in his manga, this is something I read just when I'm feeling brainless.
At times funny and great, at others boring, dull and cliche
Asu No Yoichi started out great, but quickly became a stereotypic ecchi-harem. The action is ok, but that's still not acceptable considering how much the story is focusing on it these days.
Yoichi, the main character, is a samurai that has trained with his father in the mountains all his life. His father, seeing how Yoichi can no longer learn anything there, decides to send him off to a school that teaches the same technique that Yoichi uses, so that he gets some real life experiences.
Yoichi is pretty good for a main character, being this noble person with samurai values, he tries to protect and help all those around him.
After that, it's just Yoichi with four sisters, and normal ecchi. What really brought me in were the chapters that focused on a specific girl(be it one of the sisters, a classmate, or a warrior wanting to kill him) and how that girl was changed by Yoichi's attitude and words of encouragement.
It started really good but even after 4 volumes it just keeps repeating the same thing with different stories. No progress, character development, or good fighting at all. I am still reading and giving it "6" because i still hope this will turn out to be good. In short, these are the ratings i give this series: Ecchi = 9 Harem = 8 Story = 2 Fighting = 2 Romance = 4 Character development = 3

I actually like this manga full of hilarious events and love the opening when his father acts cool yet just pretentious ^-^
