ecchi harem romance


Severely allergic to felines, Yuuto Amakawa spends his mornings nursing a drippy nose courtesy of his friend Rinko’s cat. But on his sixteenth birthday, it’s not just Rinko’s pet that’s riling up his allergies (to say nothing of his hormones)! Appearing before him is Himari, a buxom, sword-wielding cat spirit in human guise, who has sworn to protect Yuuto, now the target of vengeful spirits! It’s clear that Yuuto’s allergies are the least of his problems — he’s gonna need Himari’s help if he wants to live to see his seventeenth birthday!

Typically when you have too much of one thing, you tend to get tired of it; but what about when you have too many difference things? Well Omamori Himari happens to be a Shounen, Supernatural, Action, Harem, Ecchi, Romantic, Comedy, Drama *breathe* yeah… that's quite a mouthful. And with all these different genres meshed together, it’s all bound to feel somewhat diluted. Although there are plenty of great things to be found in this unoriginal yet refreshing manga.

Set in modern-day Japan, an average teenage boy named Yuuto Amakawa, is taken care of by his childhood friend Rinko Kuzaki, ever since he lost his parents. Now read more

I started reading this series after I finshed the anime, and after the first few volumes I relized something. Tha Manga is way better than the anime, so if you liked the anime I highly recomend you read the Manga . The storyline is really good, the auther does a good job keeping you geussing on what will happen next, as well as sprinklying in some comedy and fan service. The Manga is good cause we get to see more of Himari and friende and in the Manga Yuuto actual grows a back bone and starts to fight rather than always letting girls protect read more

I have read quite a few harem, ecchi, etc. type mangas and they all have somethig that half decent even if the pplot is nonsensical. This is often the comedy like Rysing x Rydeen or the characters like Rosario to Vampire. This manga howerver has no redeeming features as everything it does has been done before but better by other mangas. Nyan Koi beets it in the cat allergies plotline department. To Love Ru does the ecchi better. Rosar to Vampire does action better.

Story - 2
Its about youkai, so its basically been done to death. However its been really poorly as the action and read more

Story: 3/10

This is a very, very, overused, unoriginal, and tired harem story. Harem story is one term, because harem stories can be very interesting and cool. However, this is one that you could get from anywhere else. There isn't anything new, even with this sort of supernatural-twist that comes with every harem series that has no originality to it.

Art: 4/10

Even as a person who doesn't really mind moe, there is moe prevalent throughout all the character designs. But I still wouldn't mind that. In fact, the girls in this series are quite cute. No, what makes this moe different is...nothing. This is art and read more

Both are Supernatural, Harem manga with a protagonist being protected by some hot supernatural girl (Moka=Vampire | Himari=Cat Spirit). Eventually develops into a harem with the guy being surrounded by cute girls and plenty of action on the side.

Both protagonist eventually develop a supernatural trait/ability. ^_^
These two romantic comedies primarily revolve around the unusual relationship between a normal human male and a female cat that can take on a human form.
Both of these titles are set in supernatural settings in which some personified animals/objects can take human forms. The main premise of both titles is an ecchi one; featuring male protagonists who develop a harem consisting of said animals/objects.
Sekirei has far more complex plot, sometimes even too complicated for a fighting harem you'd expect. :) Omamori Himari is much simpler in terms of storyline, it features a wider variety of characters, and battles are less significant.

Its same Genre , Harem and Romance .

Bunch of Girls and bit Ecchi .

but if you Like Omamori Himari then you will Like Mayoi Neko Overrun .
Alright well you might be asking yourself "How is this similar?" Aliens and Demons?
Well both manga start off with a weak main character who is being protected by a hottie.
The main character is a really nice guy who slowly getting more and more girls, but doesn't really know how to handle all this harem.
We have the jealous best friend.
The bit of "loli" from the at first evil now siding with the main character character.
The maid-type chick who comes in later.
Throw in a bunch of ecchi and fighting.
OH! Don't forget the main character learns to protect himself.
Both series are really good, but personally I like Omamori Himari a bit more.
