Synopsis

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.

Hilarious Parts
by radiantfire

Context:
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.

Story:
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

The beloved is the ultimate fetish. (Mason Cooley)

PLOT: -

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

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

Star Rating (out of four): **

(This review is based on having read the first chapter.)

I think Ai Kora would really be worth reading if it didn’t feel so much like a Ken Akamatsu rip-off. Akamatsu, as you recall, created the famous Love Hina and infamous Negima!, two harem comedies that redefined the genre. Ai Kora does no more, it seems, than copy Akamatsu’s technique.

Two of the four girls in this manga look like descendants of Asuna and Nodoka from Negima! Identical appearances are fine by me - except that they also seem to share the same personalities. One, named Sakurako, has long orange hair and read more
