Too many darn words   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

So Molester Man is one of those mangas I ignored for the longest time based on the name alone. I'm glad I gave in and read it though, because the story here was pretty well done without feeling too sappy.

Like my subject like says, one of the only complaints I have against this series is that there's just too many words. I know this was a 2chan thread first and all, but some pages especially early on are just absolutely covered in words. This wouldn't be so bad if there was a great need for so many words but most of the time these large blocks of text could be easily cut down or summarized. Another minor issue with this manga is that the female characters fell just a bit flat for me. Main love interest girl is the only one who seemed to have some depth to her and even then she came across to me as a girl written to be cool.

Minor points aside though this is a good read that won't take you forever. It has a nice ending, the main character isn't a complete idiot and I do find the romance genuinely touching. Certainly recommended.

Wildly Overrated

The initial publicity for this manga came from the success of YOKO's previous work, Onani Master Kurosawa, a masterpiece of the doujin genre. But for some reason the hype continued. Molester Man features a shallow plot with a shallow premise and shallow characters. It is not terrible by any means, but it is not good. All of the manga hipsters who missed the initial popularity of OMK jumped on the opportunity to "discover this gem," and they began raving about it everywhere they could. The praise on manga-updates is a consequence of that.

So take the high ratings with a grain of salt. They are just hipster tears, a pathetic eulogy dedicated to missing out on one of the greatest works of art in this industry.

MC is just another entitled male trash. Couldn't make it past his disgusting personality.

And then he gets hard from hearing how she got severely stalked...? What the heck?

Please die, MC.

Can't believe some comment say its bad because it has to many word, well I guess that's why they only read manga, and there's one other say to many word but say they love word, talk about contradiction here.

Anyway this manga is good, the art kind of sloopy but lets face it the story was so good you forget about it and by the end you began to love its art.

Highly recommend for people who read manga, and novel.

I liked this manga... I pretty much believe it is true, at least it sounds more realistic than some biographies out there, and I really hope there is a guy who got lucky like that...

Also chapters 21 and 21.5 weirded me out a bit. It seems like Kansai is YOKO to me, but I suppose we will never know...

o mai gosh man just at the third chapter and I feel so tired already, there's just too many wooooords, for a manga let's lessen the inner talk, it's starting to feel like I'm reading a shoujo manga~ sigh...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So I skipped all te way to the second last chapter, an wat cha know, my thinking of "actually Molester and Kansai is much more compatible than Molester and Understanding", well this thinking of mine actually came true! Yea! I love it~ cause in chapter four molester and Kansai can happily chit chat together hehe sort of happily, now ain't that a sign of a happy couple? It sure is~! Well hehe didnt read the middle parts though but I love the ending since I kinda you can say predicted what should happen~ ok I'm just happy what I thought came true haha ^^ ok i'm lame, get it ==

i dont mind wordy manga, for example mind game manga like one outs with lots of explanation of the strategy or scify like 200+1 ya monogatari that heavily peppered the panels with scientific jargons. i love reading - but only if its useful or have meaning. but here, there is too much words that is thinner than air - its panels after panels of momentary thought and text-speak and it really tire me out to read such mundane conversations.

i understand though why the rating is very high as it seems 'realistic' and very true to the source material or message thread. but to me every medium have different kind of presentation and whats best for one is not good for another. thus the inane conversations, if directly read in message board might be thrilling, but here they just deadened natural flow of a manga.

the characters, as it is taken from real life, have realistic quality to it with the mc reacting like normal horny young adult with a pretty good head on his shoulder. the girls are also good, so if you like good characterization, this manga will provide some for you.

the art is rough and unoriginal, but pretty and easily understandable. some people might not like the fact its just sketches but i think it lend a more 'realistic' feeling to it as if this is really hastily drawn by members of 2ch to celebrate the couple victory.

all in all, i like the mc, the plot is quite plodding, and you better off skipping some inane text. but it is a pretty good romance.

I really do love it biggrin
But to say, it is a true story? Well, to quote 4chan's /b/:
"The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.
Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact."

I guess no one will truly know, but I would surely like it to be true biggrin
(And some parts are so ridiculous, that it's hard to believe, that he just made it up ;p)

This is one of the funniest things I've read in awhile. And to think something of this level actually happened? That just makes everything all the better. No wonder everything had a realistic feel to it. ha ha ha.

The fact that this story is based on a true story is just... something incredible.

No wonder why Molester Man gets frequent recommendations from veteran readers. This series is so... well, so great and unbelievably 'real' (and you know, by the word 'real', I do mean it). Mr Molester is just so innocent (when it comes to 'relationships' of course). The developments between girls and him are fast, but not insanely fast.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
someone before me stated the girls fell in love so fast. I agree. But one can 'like', well more than 'like' but not as deep as 'love', someone that fast, I guess. And the crush can be developed into love.

Molester Man is hilarious if you read many manga's (see below). Personally I laughed crying when I first saw the A#e waiter. I mean,... LOL. It's not the most touching story ever, or the most beautiful story ever. But... it really is oh so frickin beautiful and emotional just to think that this is what actually happens. (I wouldn't believe if there were more unbelievable stuffs though)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Molester is honest, more like blunt. He said he wanted to had smex with these. He had desire and such. There wouldn't be a part like this in usual 'beautiful' dramas. He admitted he was selfish. He was cool as a real man.

Also, I'm here to confirm that things like that can actually happen. I, too, was once mistaken for a molester, but at that time the girl just ran away and I didn't follow (why would I? lol)

The artist did a good job pleasing manga fans. I found a lot of parodies funny, and I still couldn't understand some of them, presumably because I've never read the references. Anyway, I like the style of drawing. Although this series could probably be better if drawn with inks, this pencil style gives the story appropriate bright tone well.

Life rarely goes easy on you. The ending is hardly ever happy...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but sometimes it really is!

TL;DR: 'This guy's love is so earnest and... real'
