Sekirei are 108 beautiful ladies of unknown origin, who together with their Ashikabi (human partners), must battle with one another in order to determine who will ascend and claim the "prize." What is the larger purpose of this event? What are the plans of the event's overseer, the same individual who found these Sekirei and introduced them into society?

Enter Sasashi Minato, 19 years old and approaching his 2nd year as a ronin. He is about to give it all up and return home, when quite literally, Musubi falls into/onto his life. An extremely well endowed, energetic, simple and sweet girl in a short miko outfit. Suddenly he finds himself as an Ashikabi, living with a girl for the first time in his life. And this is just the start of his new crazy life, which at most times is more than the poor Minato can handle.


Sekirei has been published digitally in English by Yen Press under their Yen Press World imprint since November 24, 2015 and in Italian by J-POP since June 9, 2012.

One guy, several girls and a heap of mishaps are what make a harem however Sekirei does things is a little differently. Instead of focusing on the typical Ecchi, Romantic, Comedy aspect; here the Supernatural, Action takes precedence, following an exciting battle royale of hot characters. Depending on your taste you may enjoy this out of the ordinary harem, or be repulsed by the clothes stripping action.

The Sekirei Plan is a top secret project where hot girls & guys of unknown origin have to fight, fight and fight some more in some bizarre battle royale. Minato Sahashi is the young man who’s thrown into this read more

Sekirei described in a sentence would be ahem... highlander with boobies. but don't let that put you off now I say i've read 61 chapters but that is a bit of a guess it's around 61 but i lost my place
so now for the reveiw (oh and please forgive my bad spelling and gramer)

Story: as mentiond it's basicly highlander with hot chiks in revealing outfits oh and if you haven't seen highlander got to a dvd rental shop and rent it I'm not describing it for you but basicly it's a good plot taken from a 1980's action movie so it losses points masivly read more

Ah, Ecchi manga. Typically I stay away from these, but I wandered upon this one
and just decided to read it.

Story - 8
The story isn't that bad. Not much plot though, too much boobies. Stick to the main plot more and this would've gotten a higher score.
Gags (old man gags at that) were pretty funny though, I would be laughing all the time. Sometimes I laughed that my parents would come in--exactly when I press Alt + Tab.

Art - 7
Again, too much boobies. Aside from that I like the Author's style of art.
Also, I think I could handle one, two, read more

Manga: Marriage Royale
Both have Battle Royale theme, although setting is vastly different. However, both have a conglomerate involved and public announcements.

Sekirei is more of action, adventure etc. while Marriage Royale is more on ecchi.
