Well, the art ain't very good, but it's actually weird how I came to like this one.

I think Ayu Mayu is fresh; it doesn't drag, it doesn't delay the inevitable, it's fast paced, it doesn't rely on too many characters (yet), and it's funny, especially since the main character is a crazy imouto-loving maniac with an inconsistent yet comic personality.

I don't know about you, but I'm enjoying it. It's funny how its romance side actually goes somewhere yet remains unpredictable. Maybe I haven't read much ani-imouto manga relationships..

Its funny how most of these comments gave low score to the manga yet majority loved it (look at poll).

Just a thought, don't get persuaded by these comments and check it out yourself!

if you are looking for psychological enlightenement or a truely moving story, look somewhere else. But this manga brings out the truely light hearted nature. It may not be extremely creative or emotionally moving, but it does deliver what manga of this genre delivers best, a comic sense of relief and subtlle hints at deeper drama

what im saying is... despite everyone feeling this manga is cliche, it does do a good job at what it does. anyways, a shonen ramance isnt good until the protagonist becomes perverted...

I loved the whole manga, expect the last two chapters, I can't help but feel they were rushed or something similar. Unfortunately the two of them have kinda dragged down my opinion of the manga, annoyingly.

Hmm.. I judt read this manga because I'm waiting for the updates of the ones I'm reading.. There are part of the story that are "corny" and "boring" but i really liked the way yousuke act, a bit of childish comedy but its worth reading if your just waiting.. :-P

Plain fanservice manga

Nothing special with it, its like a mix between Onegai twins and He is My Master.

Really nothing special with this manga. Artwork isn't bad but the humor is so plain and stupid that it is hard for me to see how anyone older than 14 years would laugh at it.

I count it as a failure as a comedy, a failure as a drama and a failure as a romance. Its like a copycat of collected overused themes from other manga's, zero level of character depth, zero of character development...

Those who have been giving this manga good marks probably never read any other manga's of similar genre, or do not care about the plot as long as they get fanservice - ready to go praising anything and anyone that gives enough panty shots and decent enough art.

Stereotypical Bliss... the good way

Yeah, it's one of those stereotypical comedy/ecchi/romance shonen manga... but that isn't always a bad thing. The story played out pretty well, almost the entire cast of characters is easily likable, and every chapter was a joy to read. Basically, If you can look past the flaws and just read for the enjoyment, you'll definitely come out ahead. Have fun reading!

The end of Chapter 8 was the crowning moment of awesome for me, I love Mayu so much during this story's run.

The art is decent.
Story plot develops great as character development and the story flows smooth. (well-paced,not dragged)
Indeed, the comedy genres and ecchi are great when matched well.

Overall, good past-time manga to read.
