Synopsis

With a group of friends, 16 year old Kizuna stalks the city at night, flirting with middle-aged men and coercing them out of their money. The thrill should be enough to satiate her, but Kizuna remains unsatisfied with her everyday life… until a beautiful woman named Inoue Yuki, a fellow resident of “Birdcage Manor” approaches her with a job proposition- to model in the nude for her cousin, a painter and fellow resident named Yuusei Asai!

Are you tired of reading always shoujo in school settings with a tsundere girl or a fragile whinny protagonist divided between her childhood friend and the most popular guy at school? Well, then this is for you. At first glance it might be mistaken for just another shojo manga, but its definitely not.

Story- Etou Kizuna was a girl driven by money and her group. She ends up meeting two people who will change her life, Yusei and Yuki. A nice pacing and a story that will make you feel divided of which guy you want to end up with her.

Character- The characters are read more

[[ This is my first review so please go a little easy on me k? Oh and also this review is based on the first 8 chapters... ^^]]

"The Sleepy Residents of Birdcage Manor" a.k.a "Hotel Williams Child Bird" it's name stroke a little curiosity in me to start reading it... The story revolves around three characters and their lives in Hotel Williams Child Bird. The three of them carry that little of darkness within their hearts.

Starting with Kizuna Etoh quite the hot-tampered and determinate, 16 year old girl. She's somewhat smart and has some common sense in her. along with her friends, she walked the read more

First review so don't flame me. xD

Story: I found the story to be quite interesting, on how it all began with a game between a group of young girls to then later one gaining an interesting job as a model for a fellow resident's cousin. Won't get into it too much but the story is different than most that I have read.

Art: Quite good, with the added more of "art" in the manga. Character designs are soft.


Character: Very realistic personalities and situations.

Enjoyment: I quite enjoyed this manga that is still ongoing, my only complaint would be the lack of a defined release date, varying between read more

(I thought this manga deserves a review, but it's the first time I'll be writing one so go easy on me.)

Story: 7/10

True to its title, the storytelling is rather sleepy. The progression is rather slow-- and the events are nothing surprising. There's no bang. But that's the beauty of it: it's a very easy read. If you read to relax, this might be to your tastes. Instead of surprise, it stirs anticipation.

However, it's not for everyone. For people who likes their manga fast-paced and event-driven, this might bore you to sleep.

But because I like this genre, I would also like to give the read more

Young women work as models for eccentric (and hot) young male artists. The guys take an artistic interest in the girls' bodies, but of course it can be interpreted as more. Despite frequent nude modeling in Torikagosou, it is less adult-themed than Venus ni Arazu.
In both mangas we have a male artist who has a woman as his muse and in both the male lead has a moody dark or damaged soul and puts a lot of pressure on himself so he never feels his work is good enough and the male lead does soul searching in his art and with his muse. In Sleepy Residents of Birdcage Manor (Torikagosou no Kyou mo Nemtuai Juunintachi), the male lead is older and the girl is a younger muse who he rescues while in Natsu no Senjitsu the female is older and helps him. Both contain a lot of figure drawing and good art and complex relationships with the characters.
- The setting is a weird hotel/mansion/apartment.
- Female lead has long hair, is strong-willed, and unique from other female characters.
- Both series feature great art that can be considered eye candy.
- Both series focus on the residents of the mansion who are eccentric people who can't fit in the society.
- Has romance, slice-of-life, and drama.
- Male lead has an intriguing past.
- [almost] All characters are bishounen and bishoujo.
- Overall same atmosphere, reading The Sleepy Residents of Birdcage Manor reminded me of Inu x Boku SS.
Both have quiet characters, but with interesting personalities. They have the same sort of feeling.

Although "Model" involves vampires, both manga are similar in ways. There is one artist and one model who work with each other reluctantly. The male lead is usually calm on the outside, but is hiding one or two secret that the other finds out eventually. Also, there is a love triangle, but the story focuses on more than just that.
Hotel Williams Child Bird reminded me alot of El Liston; they both take in random people who don't really have anywhere else to go. The feel of the romance, characters, and careers of both manga are similar.
