Rinosuke's useless and vagrant father is now dead. Now, at the age of 16, he is completely alone and will have to quit school to make ends meet. On the night his father dies, a naked woman with large breasts falls from the sky and lands on top of him. She introduces herself as Sakamoto Marina, the future wife of the future Rinosuke.

Time Travel and ecchi done right.   
Rating: N/A
by Crowmanhunter

This is one of the few manga out there that takes a typical Ecchi scenario where a pretty girl suddenly appears in a guy's life, but then goes out of its way to actually flesh the scenario out and play it to its natural conclusion in a cohesive, logical way. Most manga in this genre introduce the girl with a random theme like, "Oh, I'm the daughter of the deceased demon lord, now I must live here." And then commences to rarely touch upon the circumstances that brought them together. RE:Marina consistently brings up the fact that Marina is from the future, and somewhen out there is a future Rinnosuke waiting for her.

The manga doesn't drag on like most silly ecchi romances do. Make no mistake, the bulk of the material is just pointless Ecchi romance, which I enjoy, but throughout the story the main character never ceases to stop thinking about the circumstances that are causing his situation with Marina to come about. And naturally, those circumstances do all play great significance in how the manga concludes. What I'm trying to say is that this manga has AN ACTUAL DECENT STORY THAT ULTIMATE CONCLUDES IN A LOGICAL FASHION DICTATED BY THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CAUSED THEM TO COME ABOUT.

tldr; its good.

Also, my personal theory for why Marina remembers Rinnosuke in the ending:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
To understand how the timeline overlaps, you have to remember some key events.
In the final chapter, Rinnosuke doesn't introduce himself to Marina until she's 23 years old. This is an important detail. In the first chapter, Marina tells use they met and started dating when she was only 20, and he falls ill three years later. So this is when Marina goes back in time, AT THE AGE OF 23.

So if the year she turned 23 is when Marina leaves the timeline, because timetravel is theoretically stagnant, then the year she turned 23 is also when she re-enters the timeline when Rinnosuke comes back to get her. So what you have to understand is that the Marina we are seeing at the end there isn't a new Marina with the old Marina's memories. She is actually the old Marina continuing where she left off when she initiated the time travel.

I am a big fan of comedy romance and did a search and the cute cover got my attention. Without reading the synopsis I dug right in.. and just wow just wow. I haven't gotten far, just a few chapters in and I can see why the teen is hesitant I would be damn frightened. She is scary.

Those who throw insult at him have issues. No one in their right mind will accept anyone who claims to be their spouse from the future, especially after your fathers wake. The whole relationship is ridiculous. One is just discovering themselves and the other needs to get milked.

The basic premise of the story is nothing new (beautiful woman from the future comes and dotes on a, at best, tepid male protagonist). Art is typical of its genre, but is still aesthetically pleasing.

The more realistic concerns regarding this novel is the seemingly lack of any serious consideration behind anything other than the ludicrous relationship between the female and male protagonists. There is no real character development other than a few moments of the MC's desires to overcome the shadow cast by his future self (which the manga doesn't flesh out as a real emotion with any substance). Also, the manga completely fails to consider the implications of the premise (e.g. no mention of female protagonist's former life other than she was a female university student).

Overall it's an alright short gig if you're interested in mindlessly absorbing basic content.

Great woman behind pathetic MC

The MC is a dickless wonder but the woman after him is everything a guy can ask for. His life sucks ass and he is constantly trying to reject the one undeserved lifeline that's been thrown to him. It's amazing to think anyone could love such a miserable little troll.

The saving grace of this story is the woman trying to save him. Kind, beautiful, empathetic and willing to support him financially during his time of need, most in his situation would at least show a little gratitude instead of demand to be allowed to wallow in his misery. His future self must have been a damn fine man because current him is a whiny bitch.

Contrary to the majority of works giving us a normal mc mysteriously attracting a beautiful woman, at least here she has a motive to love him, since she married him in her past (his future).

Very mixed feelings

At first I really enjoyed it, especially the sweet story and art style. But over time I became frustrated with the childish MC. Development is very slow, both his and the relationship between the two. I felt like was being dragged along while always waiting for proper communication. By the time the MC began growing into something less frustrating, it ended. I don't know if it was axed or not, but the ending felt very rushed. The first handful of chapters before the drama and end were great though.

Decent romance, good ecchi, but nothing remarkable.

8/10 ecchi, but 7/10 manga overall

Story started with good pacing, but the last few chapters were all rushed within a single volume. The mangaka did good with the amount she had to cover in the last arc, but some questions still are left unanswered.

That said, overall a decent experience, and tons of cute, adorable, and smoking ecchi.

Early on I held high promise for this manga, it's a pretty unique plot and it felt like things were going to start moving along nicely. The main problem is that after things get started things slow down to a crawl. Marina will just randomly decide to flip how she's treating Rinosuke at the drop of a hat without telling him a word and stuff like that. Besides that point Rinosuke is just annoyingly beta sometimes, I really wish he had some kinda character progression sooner. Things pick up a lot in the last 15 chapters or so but even then it's not exactly a crazy improvement.

I also found the whole Marina instance kinda weird to begin with, I mean she literally shows up on the day his dad dies and then just treats him like her husband. Then she gets shocked that he doesn't feel this way about the woman he just met. Marina just comes across as hopelessly naive at best and downright stupid at worst sometimes. I mean she literally worries in one chapter that she might be changing the past. After she went back in time to live with her husband's past self. Ya think, Marina? The story also doesn't tell us much about Marina ultimately besides "she has big tits" and "she wants to be a teacher" so it's hard to really connect with her

Do I recommend is story? Sure. The time travel (while not used to its full potential at all) leads to some nice story moments and the ending was satisfying. Just don't expect much more than a kinda shallow romantic comedy

Entertaining but not 'good'

I wouldn't call this a good story with good plot and character development, however it kept me entertained for 2 hours. The huge amount of focus on her boobs every time they introduced her at the start of many chapters was actually really annoying. There were some plot holes though like at the start the concept was 16yo MC is same person as 41yo MC, and then it goes to they are different, and then it's current and future FC is same person and therefore it doesn't matter which one he gets with... Either way it was good enough for shallow entertainment. On a side note I'd love to have a Marina XD
