Ooyama Takeru, a young normal yet perverted minded guy, got accepted and now goes to a school that, unknown to him, was where combat and magic is used. On the first day, he meets again after three years: Amaya Haruko, his childhood friend, Kushiya Inaho, a girl who says she's his fiance, and Himegami Kodama, a blonde who wants to kill him. Finding out that there are many girls there that just don't like him, he is told that everyone there uses a special magic ability while using an item or weapon called a Maken. Later, he finds that no Maken is acceptable for him and doesn't know what to do, since in this school the students get into duels that showcase their magic and combat power, to which he seemingly has none.

The scanlation

This manga isnt breaking any new ground yet but its fairly enjoyable. However the scanlation is rather poor, while I appreciate the effort of the translators I have to wonder if the effort isnt somewhat wasted considering the poor quality of the english used.

Another generic but fine serie

Personally thinking, this kind of mangas are funny and interesting. When you mix harem, combat and romance, they turn out interesting ways. Ofc there are much of those chapters which dont usually have any meaning, but are still funny to read.
For those who just messed up and accidently read manga which doesnt fall to their liking in genre or whatsoever, dont bother overdo it when you want to complain since It is very annoying to look and definitely annoying to read. Freedom of speech and givin personal thoughs is quite fine, but angrily piling em up like wanting to raise a shitstorm isnt, its depressing.

I really wish people would stop bashing story's because they are generic. I mean really if you think it's that generic.. don't read it.. go find a different manga... maybe leave a small note much like this one saying that it is kind of generic and hey, rate it low.

Takeda Hiromitsu is one of my favorite H-Artists. When I looked up his name on here, I found that he had a non-hentai manga running. So, I found a manga reading website that had it and started to read the story.


This story is shit. I knew that it would be bad since 98% of H-Artists write stories that have horrid plots and characterization, but Jesus Christ...This is the reason why Al Gore is trying to make everyone save the planet. Trees have died for nothing when they decided to print this on paper. The plot is generic, the characters are generic, the fight scenes are generic. EVERYTHING IN THIS STORY IS GENERIC.

I wish Baka-Updates would allow us to rate manga in the negative, because this manga truly deserves it. It's only readable if you like manga that only follow the most basic rules of its' genre and are too lazy to have even an speck of originality.

EDIT: To callmebaboon's review above mine: The reason why I'm bashing this waste of trees is the simple fact that it's so generic that it's predictable. I guessed what was going to happen in certain parts of the chapters (Like the fights, or lectures, or the parts where the main character would be misunderstood and beaten by the girls for stupid reasons) AND I WAS RIGHT EVERY TIME. I don't want to read a manga where I can correctly predict everything that's going to happen pages (and even chapters) before it happens. To me, it's just a waste of bandwidth and time that I could've used reading a manga that's actually good.

What you have to remember is that people have different opinions about everything. What you may think is good, I think is shit. What I may think is good, you think is shit.

Many users who have posted before that it is average and mediocre to the core is correct. So in short, don't expect anything remarkable too much from it. It's basically Sekirei redone all over again.

But I do have a comment for the artwork though. o0James0o, you're right, they look, well for lack of a better word...chubby. Not my type at all.

the story of the manga is pretty much average.... the developement of the manga is also pretty average... bascially i can already guessed that this is a harem manga of this one super strong guy with hidden powers.... i guess the only thing good about this manga is the fan services.... the girls are cute too... but in chapter 6.... is it just me or did they seem to gain fat?!... that isnt good.... since their thighs are like super big and boobs not in the good lookin shape....

i like this manga. its not new or unique, but its a blend of some of my favorite genres. only at 3 chapters i cant really say too much, but it has potential. the story could possibly be good. its just a fun read. dont expect anything too complex
