An excellent and very educational series. About a newlywed couple who are virgins and their comedic ups and downs in learning how to have sex. Not really a hentai, though there are scenes which can be called hentai. Tastefully rendered taboo themes. A funny "how to" guide for sex illiterate and experts.

It is not sex that gives the pleasure, but the lover. (Marge Piercy)


Futari Ecchi is undoubtedly the most informative and educating manga out there. However the information provided is on ‘sex’. The story revolves around the sexual life of a married couple. Lives of their friends, co-workers, family members and neighbors are also covered time to time.

Because of the extra focus on sexual aspects, this manga gets blames like ‘a series that only revolves around the bed’, ‘series with zero plot development’ etc. These acquisitions are quite wrong.

Despite being quite slow, there is quite decent plot development in this series. And we also see read more

Saying that this is hentai is like saying any movie with sex or boobs in it is porn. It astonishes me how prude people are in this day and age. This is why there needs to be more proper and realistic sexual education, and not only about the risks but mainly about how sex normally is conducted, men and women don't know anything about each others mind and body and when a man is expected to know exactly what to do he will take reference to the only sexual experience he has... porn. This is why the author (of the manga) created this series and read more

This manga is actually very educational about sex. I like the plot and the characters for the most part (even though the main guy character can be an a-hole a lot of the time) But for someone like me who was never taught much about sex or how the body develops throughout puberty, I was able to learn just about everything through this manga. One thing that I find kind of ridiculous is that they show just about every part of the woman's body, but when it came to the guy's d*ck, it was replaced with a banana....I don't know, maybe that's just supposed to read more

I first found out about Futari Ecchi on the internet whilst looking for some manga to read up on and i thought the idea behind was very intriguing and real to life which has always been popular to be in real life.
the story revolves around a newly married, inexperienced, virginal couple called Makoto and Yura who are determined to make sure their experiences together can only get better as the days go by. Meanwhile their friends & families will have something to say and plenty of advice to give to them.
one of the key points i will bring up is that the manga is rated read more

Manga: Nana to Kaoru
Futari Ecchi is to "normal" sex as Nana to Kaoru is to BDSM. Essentially both series are geared towards educating their readers of their premise.

Both of these romcom series center around a dumb couple trying to figure out sex.

Manga: Koibana Onsen
Both deal with the relationship between sex, romance, and love; both focus on how the problems of young couples can affect their sex lives (and vice versa); both maintain a light, romantic tone, even while discussing serious issues. Both are borderline-H manga.

Manga: Love♡Lucky!
Same author, both series' characters make cameo appearance in each other. Futari Ecchi, as the name might suggest, focuses a lot more on the sex aspect with a lot of "useful" knowledges - it's like wikipedia for sex. Love Lucky focuses on human relationship, but FE does not lack in that category either. Both series have great comedic moments and of course, great art and great sex.
