Goto Nagi has travelled to the southern island of Okitsushima, and ventures out to see Umi no Misaki, a striking cape jutting out into the ocean. But when he arrives, he finds that there is much more to this cape than a wondrous view. There is something peculiar about the cape, and about the island's inhabitants.

It is not often that you'd come across an ecchi harem manga, where the main characters aren't afraid to follow-trough and express their affections for one another, just like any real couple in an actual relationship. Yet that is exactly the kind of manga you've stumbled across. Umi no Misaki being an Ecchi, Harem, Slice of Life, with a greater focus on the Romance to enhance its relaxing story; revolving around an island community, with its own ancient customs and cultural traditions.

Set in the radiant & lush island of Okitsu; a city boy named Nagi Goto travels to such an isolated rural environment, for read more

Hello guys reading my review, this is my first review so please don't think badly of it.
Now to get onto the grasp of this manga, i have read about 100 chapters so i would have a fair knowledge about this. You might hate this manga for whatever reasons but i give good scores to anime and manga because they are always entertaining in a way whatever the anime/manga is like typical,ecchi,harem,drama.

About: This starts off like some typical harem mangas and animes do, which i fairly like about it, it starts off the main protagonist then meets a heroine in a way, then he discovers a read more

It really is quite a story. Umi no Misaki is very unique and can pull us into this lovely tale with suspicion, mystery, and a slight suspense that enthralls the ecchi and romance that surrounds the main character.

I liked the uniqueness and the suspense built into this manga. I didn't like the various awkwardness that was brought about, even if it added to the story.

Well, this is my first time reviewing a manga but after finishing this prime example of a harem manga, I thought I should write one.

Story starts with our hero Goto Nagi, who's a highschool kid coming to a remote island where his mother was a local. The background for the manga is pretty generic. "A used playground" is the correct word. Manga is based on that used playground, but it makes a great sandcastle.
For the few chapters, manga makes you think that this is a mystery manga and that the protaganist is trying to solve the puzzle, but that's not it. Not remote. read more

Manga: IO
Both of these harem manga deal with simple island life and also have amazing artwork. ^_^

Manga: GE: Good Ending
Both of these are Harem-type Manga, that looked boring as soon as I read the descriptions for them. But they both turned out to be very enjoyable!
Though I prefer Umi No Misaki

Manga: Hare-Kon.
Well, if you are looking for a harem comedy beyond the normal boring shounen setup, well hopefully one of these will suit you. Hare-kon, while still fairly new it has the original premise of a girl who is invited to become the third wife, and even though umi no misaki have a very conventional setup, it have a very unconventional execution and is way beyond most harem comedy tagged stuff.

Manga: Honeymoon Salad
Both manga involve a guy trying to sort out his romantic feelings for multiple women at the same time. In both cases, a harem develops around the male lead, but without all of the usual "harem antics". Instead, the focus of each is on how the man comes to know--and love--the women around him, and why they love him back in turn. The difference is that UmN is more of a slice-of-life and has a mystical quality to it, where Honeymoon Salad is much more grounded in the doldrums and drama of real life.

Manga: Kiss x Sis
although the plot's are totally different in these, they both give off the same sort of feel. in both of these, the main character has a variety of girls that want to be with him and do so by going behind the other girls backs. all characters are likable and they both have parts in them that make you laugh out loud...

Manga: Ichigo 100%
Both feature 3 likable heroines. Though the mixture of personalities is different, you'll definitely find a preference in one of them.
Both start off fairly slowly, but have a magic in them where characters begin to grow on you as you read on through the story, and before you know it - you'll be entirely immersed.
If you get sick of one, at least try soldier through 25 chapters worth before dropping it (because that's where Ichigo 100% began to pick up, I dunno when Umi no Misaki got interesting for me, just did).
