Maeda Hachibei is unlike most guys, who lust after gorgeous girls. This pervert lusts after their discrete parts, instead. When he moves to Tokyo to attend school, he finds himself living in a dormitory with five girls, each of which possesses one of the ideal physical features he desires: gorgeous blue eyes, bullet-train breasts, a deep dulcet voice, straight “anime-esque” legs, or a waistline shaped like fine Japanese pottery. How can he manage to keep his wits when surrounded by these women? If you think this sounds like a Love Hina clone, you wouldn’t be entirely incorrect… but Hachibei isn’t Keitaro.

Includes a oneshot in Vol.12: "The Boy Who Heard Too Much".

If you read romance, comedy, echii etc manga, than i know you'll love this. Though this manga concentrates moreon comedy which it does magnificently. Okay the plot may not be this manga's strongest point, the overall manga is a fun and awesome read. I haven't completed this manga but it's more of those fun manga's though it does have a good story. I always laugh in the chapters and the characters are great fun. The male lead is great. He can be your typical, pushover loser, but mess with his fetishes you will meet your end!! He is just a cool guy that never disappoints you. The girl characters are very interesting all obviously having the own special "charm" about them.

For those who compare this to Love Hina, the only reason why i think people compare it is because of the description on this site. I mean at no time did i think of love Hina. The art may be similar and the setting, but there are so many harem manga's in a girls dorm. The male lead is completely different. He actually has a backbone and is strong (though only at specific times). Plus he doesn't get fazed by any girl, if a girl took of her shirt off in front of him but didn't have his bullet train boobs, he wouldn't go crazy or have a nosebleed. He really is only a pervert to his fetishes ( and a big one). But hes not the gross perverted, hes more the worshipping or " omg i love it" funny type of pervert. Its funny how he tries to make them happy while making himself too. So yea there are similarities still but what manga doesn't have similarities. Love Hina is a fantastic manga on it's own and Ai Kora is a awesome manga on it's own.

All in all, dont get the idea that this is a bad manga. This manga is not for those searching for a true romance manga. Though in it's own right this manga is a marvel. Really funny, with some great references and hilarious scenes, great fun characters and still has a good romance, plus more, this manga is great and very enjoyable to read. Read this manga, it's one of those you can always come back to and enjoy again and again.

P.S I really want an anime version so i can hear the prized voice ^_^

MUST READ for HAREM fans!!!

The first mangas I read were once that had really good art such as Deathnote, UxU, 07-Ghost... So I hesitated to read this manga at first, having seen the cover art. When I ran out of chapters in UxU(Unbalance x Unbalance, another must read for Harem fans!) I started looking for more Ecchi manga.

I finally came across this one and I don't regret it one bit! Extremely funny! Although unrealistic a lot of times as pointed out by some users(Ankles-less legs and stuff... XD ).

Often being compared to Love Hina for a good reason. Here are some of which I found:

- Hachibei gets beaten up by the girls often, but not as often as Keitaro
- Hachibei possibly has the same stamina as Keitaro
- presence of a hardcore drinker girl in the apartment
- The humor is just brilliant! Not the typical "accidentally trips on a girl" humor you'll see in most ecchi series. Expected the unexpected every chapter!


- Hachibei has some sudden gusts of strength when the girls get harassed.
- The fetish...
- All girls are relatively normal (No weirdos like Kaora Su or Mutsumi ).
- So far, there are more dramatic moments in Love Hina or at least, the dramatic moments in Love hina were more memorable.

Another brilliant manga from Inoue. Better character development than Midori no Hibi and humor is just as good; possibly better! This is easily one of my favorite mangas but I wouldn't recommend it to non-harem fans. ^^,

I can't wait for the last chapter! And I really expect the last volume to be great, having finished Midori no Hibi...

epic lulz.

Will finish review once I've finished reading. There is just too much lolol going on I can't even grade. But I really do enjoy the few sweet moments that happen. But romance aside, this manga has me lololing for a good 5 minutes and I like this reformed idea of harem.
Because instead of having a indecisive guy with over 9000 girls on him, we have a manly man loving his fetish to the max that just happened to fall onto the girls around him.

this is the most stereotypical harem/ecchi manga i have ever read. how i can define stereotypical, i have no idea.
this is not really worth your time. i read it cuz i was bored and i hate to drop a manga so i have kept it up. the humor is better than most harem manga but the plot is nonexistant and for the most part, i have no idea what is going on from chapter to chapter

This is my favorite harem manga so far. Yes, Hachibe's perversion is at an extreamely high level, but he isnt a scary and daring pervert, but a funny one. Also, it is nothing like Love Hina. Im guessing just cause he lives with girls at a dormitory, people think its the same. Its not, there are so many differences, and i think hachibe is a lot cooler than keitaro.

Oh and u should read this. Best harem manga alive.

Though this manga is similar to Love Hina it has its diffrences. Like Hichibei's super human mode and the fetish sub plot. It is a improved version of Love Hina and it doesn't have Ichigo 100% problem of having a terrible ending (Ichigo 100% is similar to I''s). Though just so everyone knows though the manga was supossed to end IT IS NOW STARTING UP AGAIN AND I AM VERY HAPPY. THANKS INOUE KAZUROU!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL LARGE amount similiarities with love hina??

-First of all, as a fanboy, this manga is funny, there are some hilarious moment.

-The concept is very original and its the first time i have read a manga that focuses on "Part" fetishes. Oh man japanese people are so creative in an odd way lol.

-Male lead and other male characters mostly are the major element of the comedy due to their "fetishism" and girls are the victim here, of course not in a negative way but as a humour, although i still dont get what japanese people are thinking lol.

- I've been trying so hard to compare this with love hina that i had to re-read love hina and still i dont see any LARGE similiarties. The only thing they share is the harem genre nothing more nothing less story-wise, comedy material and characters.

Overall, fanboys who is into this genre will like it. For fangirls, lol i dont knw what to say. My girl friends commented this manga is definitely for boys because they were disgusted and said extreme fetishism people like that are very scary and should not exists and must be eliminated LOL but they do admitted that this manga is funny but it also gives them the creeps.

Well, I picked this one up somewhere along the line. It is surprisingly good for the concept, however, as the comments and summary dictate, Hachibei IS a GIGANTIC pervert. It's at a scary level of perversion. However, for you ecchi liking men out there, it's good. The relationship with the main female lead DOES tone down some of the perversion. But, as was also said, it shares a LARGE amount of similarities with Love Hina. I would not recommend this to someone unless I knew they would like it. This is NOT a must read. It's no classic.

Although this story is indeed different as the main character actually attempts to get girls, the similarites between this and Love Hina are too numerous.
