comedy ecchi harem romance


Maeda Hachibei is peculiar, because, when most males lusting after gorgeous females, he instead lusts after discrete parts. When he relocates to Tokyo to attend school, he finds himself living in a dormitory with five females, each possessing a distinct ideal physical trait he desires: gorgeous blue eyes, bullet-train breasts, a deep dulcet voice, and straight "anime-esque" legs. Can he manage to keep his wits when these women surround him? Although you would not be completely incorrect if you believe this is like Love Hina… Hachibei is no Keitaro. (Source: Musashi Quality)
Vol.12 contains the oneshot "The Boy Who Heard Too Much", written before Inoue Kazurou was a serialised mangaka. It was later reworked into the basis for 'Heat Wave'.

The beloved is the ultimate fetish. (Mason Cooley)


This series focuses around the daily life of Maeda Hachibei, a pervert who idolizes ‘Parts Love’.

There’s a big misconception among anime/manga fans that a pervert is someone with extreme sexual desire or fantasies. In truth being a pervert means to think, act and follow the paths which are opposite to the normal standards set the world. Having weird/abnormal sexual tastes and desires indeed comes in that but it is not only limited to that.

In a sense ‘Parts Love’ is a perverted thing and in another sense it is not.

Parts Love is a common norm among teenagers. The read more

Hilarious Parts
by radiantfire

For this review, I'll be analysing Ai Kora. It is by Inoue Kazurou who is probably most known as the author of Midori no Hibi. At the time of this writing, I have read 58 chapters of this manga.

Ai Kora revolves around Hachibe Maeda and his endless attempts to glorify his favourite parts. It is a creative attempt on the world of fetishes and takes the notion of "objectifying women" to another level. Each chapter is episodic, in that, they often highlight a particular fetish being promoted. In this sense, those who enjoy short quick shots of romance and comedy will definitely enjoy read more

Ai Kora is a story of a boy living in a dorm with the girls with his dream parts. At first I was quite hesitant to read since I was against reading ANY ecchi manga, but it turned out to be something i never expected. Although it's a shonen manga, the balance of comedy, romance and drama can make girls hooked too. the characters are also quite remarkable because there's a tsundere, the quiet and girly type, the "small but terrible type" etc. You will also find it's romatic parts qite different from most romantic comedy manga. The art is cute, although the hairstyle are read more

Honestly I feel a bit like I wasted my time. It's not really bad or anything but it's not all that great either. The story is a cliche among cliches. Boy gets to live in a girl's dorm. Wow. Haven't seen that before. I expected better from the mangaka.

The characters are weak. They don't evolve. They are stereotypes and have stayed the exact same up to the last volume I read (the fifth). I would be lying to say I could distinguish all the random scenarios in this manga from the billion other similar read more

Both protagonists are in essentially identical situations, where the main character are nearly clones of their counterparts in the series. They have the same behaviour, reactions, and similar appearance to the character(s) in the other series. Love Hina is probably more ecchi, but that's not saying Ai Kora isn't ecchi at all.

Both series' comic foundation is oftentimes delivered by the various mishaps caused by perverted male protagonists.
Both main characters have an insane passion for what they love. Plot isn't the most important factor, making you the reader laugh, whether it be on the floor or not, is. Both main characters get abused beyond recognition and the art styles are very good.
the protagonist in this one is similar to ai kora in which he does everything to protect the smile of the girls he has his eye locked on
reportRecommended by ekz - Add to favorites
These 2 manga series are similar in their main male character (the happy-go-lucky cum idiotic kind but serious in times of need) and that both feature love triangles between the guy and 2 close friends.

However, Ai Kora is more focused on fetishes while Ayu Maru is about two girls who might be the guy's brother, and the other possibly his gf (which is similar to Onegai Twins).

In both series the main male characters have superhuman abilities when their individual fetishes are involved.
