Synopsis

Megumi is a descendant of Kuronekomaru, a famous thief who stole an heirloom from a samurai’s mansion. When he opened the scroll, the family’s guardian dragon appeared and cursed Kuronekomaru and his descendants: his family is destined to serve Kougami’s family for one hundred generations. Megumi is living the high life, since the last of the Kougamis vanished two years ago. However, when Suzuka—the current generation of the Kougamis—returns home, Megumi has built up no resistance to the curse, so he is forced to serve her with a slave-like obedience.

Toraware no Minoue is basically a romance between the main characters who have a master-servant relationship, however the servant has a curse that makes him have an extreme impulse to do whatever his master tells him to, so that complicates the relationship.

Story: I must admit that the master-servant relationship is seen quite often, so I can't say it's completely original, however it does have a good amount of comedy inside. Sometimes, there are also some serious romance and tragedy parts, but the mangaka has done it quite well, in my opinion, to not make it all too overwhelming.

Art: I like the mangaka's style read more

This is a rather silly (a fun kind of silly) master/servant romance story. It's not meant to be taken seriously, it's just a quick, fun and rather light hearted read.


Fourteen years ago, the wealthy Kogami family traveled to China when they vanished. Since the Kogamis were thought to be dead their mansion was left to their head butler and his son Megumi.

Megumi is enjoying the easy life when one day it is discouvered that the Kogamis daughter, Suzaka has survived and will be returning to Japan. Megumi is determined to not take up the position as a Kogami butler that was originally planned read more

Toraware no Minoue has the same type setting of a servant & master relationship in which they both fall in love with each other, but there are other obstacles separating their love. Both are also interesting and enjoyable.
In each manga, the man and woman have a master-servant relationship, the woman being the master. The two fall in love fairly quickly and their relationship progresses. Just a note, but Chou yo Hana yo is a bit more mature.
