Futari Ecchi  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
An excellent and very educational series. About a newlywed couple who are virgins and their comedic ups and downs in learning how to have sex. Not really a hentai, though there are scenes which can be called hentai. Tastfully rendered taboo themes. A funny "how to" guide for sex illiterate and experts.

There's bound to be haters but for me, it has appeal due to the artwork and cuteness of the overall story. True, some things do piss you off like some ppl alws sleeping around. Haha. But it's just simple fun for killing time.

Btw, noticed that there have been no translations beyond chapter 200. =l

I really don't remember clearly when i first started reading this manga series but it was well long time ago (2-3 years) .., I think it was from the short clips posted on youtube for the animation of this manga.
What I really love about it was the information and knowledge you get while you are enjoying the storyline, the informations wasn't raw but supported with statistics and data, which makes it more realism and acceptable. especially when it come to sex life topic where most people don't regulary talk about or shy in general.
The other thing is the quality of the art used to draw the characters and positions, its clear, fine and really beautiful, something which rarely to find in other manga's..
I will keep reading this, as i regularly check back for the new chapter realeses and updates ... hopes it would never stops : )

I think some chapters were better than others. It was a little repetitive and I eventually got fed up with the couple, but it wasn't terrible. I enjoyed reading the polls and I think it was informational, though I don't think it was 100% accurate.

I think I would have enjoyed it better if there was some actual development. I feel like they just aren't getting better as time goes on. It's a good thing that Yura is so stupid and loves her husband, because I definitely would have left him after a while. I swear, for a guy that it pretty bad in bed, he sure jumps at every opportunity to get it on. -__-

Anywho, it's still an interesting manga. I liked to skip around a bit, mostly picked chapters based on the title. It's not terrible, like some people say, but it's not that great either.

I've read a lot of criticism about it, but I enjoyed it a lot. Part of reason is the characterization, sure Yuri (the wife for those who haven't read it) is nearly saint like in her purity and naivety, and Makoto (the husband) is an omega class idiot, but I enjoy how they work together. As to Mokoto idiocy, sure, he makes a lot of mistakes and his libido is through the roof for a guy in his late twenties but he strikes me as being more real than one of those 'there's no fucking way you're this suave" guys that you see in a lot of romance stuff. Also, I admit that later chapters start to get a little formulaic but if you just want to get a little info on sex/sexuality that you might not have known about before then read the first fifty chapters or so.

I hate guys that are like Makoto, I've lived with my girlfriend for 5 years, but I don't beg her for sex I have sex whenever she asks me for it because I consider her feelings more than my own.

Well i liked it a lot, i did find out some very interesting stuff. I only regret that all statistic data is mainly based on Japanese, plus its a bit outdated, like a chapter about impotency as incurable thing (well there was no Viagra in 1996). I really would like to see how far will they go. Cause they have to reach that point when you say "ok that's to hardcore" would be fun to see Yura doing some SM stuff. It's a very good comedy i laughed a lot! Well the main character is a bit irritating at times, and he did not improve much in that whole year compare to his libido. I am looking forward to the next chapters so keep the good work guys!! (well you need some encouragement there's another 32 vols to do)

Bad Sex Education

I read a couple dozen chapters and then quit. As the other people below have stated, after a while the story just gets repetitive. There isn't any real development in the characters or storyline. But actually that wasn't what pissed me off about the series. The manga is supposed to be an entertaining sex education, but at one point there's a character who is sleeping around with many men and not using condoms. She thinks this is perfectly fine since she isn't in danger of getting pregnant at the time, but what about STDs? What about the fact that tracking a women's cycle isn't fool proof for preventing pregnancy? It annoyed me so much that I really couldn't continue reading.

Yeah what a lot of people say in the reviews here make sense but... there's one thing about this manga that no one has really talked about... and that is married life isn't all glitter, so there's really no point in writing this like any other manga. No plot, no action, just slow daily life is the way it should be. Clearly this won't appeal to a younger generation and audience... and its not supposed to. If you find this manga boring and can't continue reading it, then you are obviously not mentally mature enough.

The extra sex ed information is just extra imho, its more of a manga about a couple and their mundane lives, which is a lot more exciting than most married couples to begin with!

Makoto is a douche 75% of the time, but I would not replace him with any other character stereotype, since as the way he is now, he appears to be a lot more believable and non-fiction. I guess this might throw off some women that might read this, but seriously, this manga is based out of a western culture. Plus the 25% of the time when hes sincere makes Yura stick with him, is it that hard to believe that she might actually like him for who he is?

Other than that... Makoto also there because all the lame losers following this manga are like him.

alot of people say its boring but this mangas not suppose to have a huge plot cause basically its about sex and teaching men about it there is a woman's version (futari ecchi for ladies) but i don't think there are alot of chapters(right now) but anyway this mangas useful cause men usually don't have that person that teach you about sex so this manga might be good if your bad at sex or don't have lots of experience

When you start it's like "Wow, what a cute love story! And all this trivia, this is really interesting!" But then as the volumes go along it's less love story, less trivia and more sex sex sex (and usually the same boring people in the same boring positions) sex sex sex sex. And then you look at the Total Volumes and realize it's 40 more volumes of boring sex sex sex sex sex sex sex sex sex... If that's all you want, any hentai will do the trick.

I read up to 13 then jumped to vol 30 and nothing significant had changed. Just read the first few and stop.
