Asu no Yoichi!  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Yoichi Karasuma has spent all of his life in the mountains, training in the Soaring Wind, Divine Wind swordsmanship style. Under his father's guidance, he is able to master the technique at the age of 17. With nothing left to learn, Yoichi is sent to a new dojo located in the city so he can continue to train and gain an understanding of modern society.

Unfortunately, Yoichi has no idea how to act or speak to anyone in the present day and acts like a samurai, complete with odd speech and traditional clothing. As he goes to live with the Ikaruga sisters Ayame, Kagome, and Chihaya, at the dojo, Yoichi, clueless on how to interact with others, is constantly hurtled in hilarious misunderstandings.

Agreed with the comment below, unfortunantely this site has, like many other sites, 13 year old users. Hence the high rating.

Characters are cliché, which leads to cliché comedy. All in all, this manga doesn't offer anything new. Art was nice and this manga had potential until the "COMEDY" kicked in (lets grap some tits shall we, whoops).

ecchi +harem= fail

This manga fails overall as a manga...My title should say it all...The fan-service just completely eradicates any possibility of this becoming worthy of reading...unless you want to see big boobs, accidental boob grabbing, accidental stripping, the typical ecchi nonsense, this is for you...

If you were stupid like me for thinking this would actually be good, ( the story itself might have been) then please save yourself the wait for the next chapters and move on. Why do writers waste their time with this crap? Do people really want to read this? Or is this only for when you're in a horny mood and need to relive stress?

All in all, the quality seemed to have jumped off a cliff ever since I saw the first, " oops, it was an accident" moment.

ATTN writers: Stop writing this crap and put more effort for an overall better story...good god.

Standard harem

[edit by mod, foul language]
As with most harem, this isn't very good, but it's an ok read if you shut off your brain and just need to relax... well, it would be, if it wasn't for one thing. The main girl is an absolute and total *****. Like in so many other harem manga, the main girl beats the main character senseless for no reason, but in this manga it's taken to an extreme. Even when he's sick and feverish, he gets beaten to a pulp. I really can't believe why they keep using this tired old clichè, as it's ruined the manga for me.
The rest of the cast is actually somewhat interesting for a generic harem manga, and the art is much better than the usual tripe. Too bad it gets ruined by an overly violent and cruel *****.

The artwork is really good, the girls really cute, even if sometime their expressions are exagerated.
The main character is really funny, some of his facial expressions are great.
Like at the end of chapter one when he is waiting full of expectation when the girls are reading his haiku "Today I met a big titted girl - Yoichi".
You can't go wrong with one if you like shonen, comedy, and a bit of ecchi ^^.

After reading chapters 1-3, I gotta say some parts are pretty damn funny. The artwork is great. The characters are decent but the one that stands out for me is Washizu, who I guess you could think of as the main character's rival. He reminds me of Harima Kenji from School Rumble, meaning cool personality but also somewhat of an idiot. Check it out.

Now I've read chapter 4 and thus finished volume 1. The characters other than Washizu (who isn't even in that chapter) do feel kinda generic without much in the way of unusual personality traits. The character design and artwork is quite good but a bit more personality would help. Maybe the characters will develop more later. I'll add a rating of 8/10 for now, largely because of the great art and because it's funny

It seems to be your typical harem. The Main guy isn't a pansy and the art is great. Want more.

I don't know yet if this series will turn out to be a fighting manga, something like Kenichi or the fighting will be just a plot device and the story will be all about comedy and harem.
The girls are cute while stereotypical. The boy always gets into trouble with the girls and getting killed because of that, but in fighting he is unmatched so far.
I'm curious how it will go on. Until then i give it an 8.

this is a nice funny series about a mountain boy that comes to live in the city. Lots of it getting handed to him by the oldest of 4 sisters he comes to live with. while the 3 oldest uses him as a model in her manga
