Goto Nagi has travelled to the southern island of Okitsushima, and ventures out to see Umi no Misaki, a striking cape jutting out into the ocean. But when he arrives, he finds that there is much more to this cape than a wondrous view. There is something peculiar about the cape, and about the island's inhabitants.

Stupid grin indeed

(After reading volume 1)

I also think that the setup for this harem series is absolutely ridiculous, but I also can't get this stupid grin off my face.

It's really one of those situations where you can't help but laugh.

The main character is likable though since he always knows what to say.

(after ch 49)

...I recommend those curious stop after volume 1. It goes downhill pretty fast after volume 2.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
once you get past that loopy opening the story is reduced to the three girls fighting to get into the main character's pants. It's really not as good as it sounds.

A refreshing take on an overused genre.

I can't put this title down, and reading it sticks me with this permanent goofy grin, which makes me feel really stupid. Giggling like a little girl and grinning like an idiot simply cannot be healthy for a guy my age.

Uncomfortable reading experiences aside, UnM is so much fun. It makes me feel a little stupid, ranting so glowingly over a harem manga. But for what it lacks in uniqueness of genre, it certainly makes up for in every other aspect.

It may feature four of the major female character archetypes, but it doesn't take long to realize that while they may be somewhat cliché, they're all actually quite interesting and lovable. Though it's quite obviously a harem-style story, that's not immediately obvious to the uninformed, and the back story is quite elaborately set up. The experience never feels like a cheap excuse to get girls flocking to a guy, like most harem stories do. Even the pantsu, oppai, kissing, blushing, and general non-stop fan service somehow don't seem like cheap ratings-oriented inserts. The artwork in every single chapter is absolutely gorgeous. The story is actually pretty deep and explores themes like, fate and destiny, purpose, responsibility, indoctrination, self-discovery, culture, love and friendship.

I can't find any way to say anything negative about this title - even it's generic/clichéd aspects go far above and beyond the expected. If you're not already reading this title, here's a piece of advice for you: stop whatever you're doing, right now, and go read this.

It started a bit slow, and the male lead is ok I guess. He was overly-dramatic when confronting the girls' problems/attitudes in the beginning imo. Arbitrarily denying the ancient customs of an island because "It' just not right." Anyway, the situation was handled poorly imo. But of course, they respond to his lame defiance. I'm not a big fan of the *knight in shinig armor* thing I guess. Anyway after the girls warmed up, he seemed more tolerable.

One of the better things about this manga is that the lead pays attention to all the girls. Ai Yori Aoshi might as well have not been a harem because the other girls didn't even seem matter. Anyway, development is more proportionate or equal.

Because of this, the moment I start to prefer one girl, the next chapter(s) make(s) me like another. It's balanced well and now I'm hoping for a harem or open ending. Kinda tired of getting multiple, likable, and lovable characters only to have them left to the side in the end.

Anyway, check it out for yourself.

This is gotta be one of the best romance manga ever. The characters are great, the story is, well, makes sense and the best thing about the manga is that, many of the scenes involving hero and any one of the heroine are romantic sweetness! Very recommended.

This is a great manga, really enjoyable and fun to read.. Fumizuki Kou sensei is truly a masterful story teller and his art even tought it needs some getting used to, I consider to be quite unique and expressive. I hope to see more of this manga and can't wait to for the next chapter and see how this story develops. I highly reccomend it and also his previous work Ai Yori Aoishi.

I really like the story for this one, as unbelievable as all these harem mangas end up being.. because of the setting/character Umi No Misaki comes across quite real and its fun to read!
Art quality varies though, it looks amazing for most part but some times the facial expressions are just weird.

all i have to say is that i like they way the story is told. its a harem so we know that we are in stored for some laughs and some peverted moments. THe thing is, i hope that when it is time to end the series that the author does not rish it. that is exactly how i felt with Ai yori aoshi.

I'm not a fan of harems. This one is ok so far. Nothing really stands out about it. Art is decent but not impressive (except for first couple pages of vol1) compared to other mangas nowadays. Eyes are kinda freaky. Characters don't have much personality. The main girl had potential but that quickly faded. At least the guy isn't a loser. It's kinda obvious who he'll end up with. I'm just hoping the journey will be more fun and exciting....

after seeing this series around a lot, i finally decided to pick it up. i havent put it down. very cool story, similar to a typical harem, but with a twist of religion in it. go ahead and try it out, the characters are hot.
