Synopsis

Yoichi Karasuma has spent the majority of his life sharpening his martial arts skills with his father in a remote mountain. At 17-years-old, he has now reached a point where he cannot learn anything new from his old man, so he is instructed to go to the city and train with the Ikaruga family.

Turns out his social skills need more training and practice than his fighting acumen. After spending so much time in the mountains, he has no idea how to navigate daily life in modern Japan. Most importantly, he has no clue when it comes to interacting with girls, leading to plenty of misunderstandings!

Yoichi will do his best to navigate his new surroundings, but will have to be careful to not get his head taken off by the Ikaruga sisters and avoid the other lethal young ladies of the Tsubame school!

Before watching this anime I thought to myself, "This is probably one of those harems ecchi shows where a lot of girls fall for the same guy." Well it was almost that.

Instead of a lot of girls there was only two, Ibuki Ikaruga and Ayame Ikaruga. They fall in love with Yoichi Karasuma. But unlike many harems this anime has a credible storyline. Unknowingly Ibuki has a fiance. After many years he has finally come to wed his belowed. That's basically the jist of it. Yoichi and the girls try to overcome obstacles and challenges that are thrown at them.

Asu no Yoichi!
Asu no Yoichi is a good anime but lacks something and i will tell you what. The protagonist is Yoichi an overpowered samurai, but that makes sense because he spent his whole life training to be the best samurai, the problem is that he has no social skills whatsoever, he really doesn't know how to speak properly with people, and what this anime lack is a proper ending, the ending was bad.

Story
It's a Harem/Ecchi anime so you shouldn't expect much from this, the story is about Yoichi a samurai that wants to expand his knowledge of other abilities so his father sends him read more

First review I’ve done-

It doesn’t matter significantly of what others think about a particular anime. Everyone has their own taste, so in general, a review should be based purely on what you thought about it. Prior to watching Asu no Yoichi!I did a little research on it and came to the conclusion that it’s a harem anime. New to this kind of genre, I took the liberty of trying it and at the end I really enjoyed it.

Asu no Yoichi, as described on this page, is about a samurai boy who was sent down the mountain by his father to live with four girls in a modern-day, Japanese city. The premise basically is another set-up for a harem anime, although three beautiful girls plus a cute younger sister is relatively small compared to traditional anime harems.

The overall story is more of a series of short scenarios, simple events in the characters' "everyday lives" more meant for humor than anything serious. So far, the mini-stories have been resolved quickly and simply- no truly deep or touching moments, but nevertheless somewhat vaguely heartwarming. read more
