in fact, it is quite amusing.
The protagonist opens the episode declaring he is a lolicon ( yes, I thought it was an error too ). unfortunately ( for me anyway ) this episode focuses on origami, and tohka.
The art is as crisp as ever and the song ( especially the introductions ) were quite pleasing.
if anything is lacking, I'd say it's the characters but you should be ready for a static tohka and origami, after watching season 1.
as ever, tohka is lacking in brainpower - " do you hate me shidou? "
and origami is apathetic and kind of weird- "woof"
Well, if anything was the best, I'd say I liked shidou trying to get rid of origami ( sadly...)
Watch it! it will be a good memory refresher before season 2.
also notice the metaphor of kotori with her ribbons. its noticeable this episode ( if you noticed before, congrats!)

If anything is the most enjoyable part about of this manga, it is the protagonist. He uses his wits and reminds me of both Keima from TWGOK and lelouche. He notices he most minuscule of details and uses his rhetoric to convince others to act a certain way.
Also the premise is quite fun, and more details should be elucidated along the way ( there is a simple motive but there is probably a deeper theme ). I personally like these stories where a protagonist has a goal like this as it prevents the author from requiring girls falling from the sky, a strong bond from the past or something. Sure, it isn't the most effective means but it certainly isn't awful.
The art? Fabulous. Each character is drawn beautifully, as fitting for a story that isn't focused on fighting or comedy.
Enjoyment. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The psychology is really good as well, though I doubt its effectiveness in reality ( try it! ). It teaches you to notice that someone had a little thing going on yesterday or how to coerce your friend to make you food ( now this is gold. I saved it to my photo album ).
If you are seeking what this manga offers, you will be impressed at it. However, it is by no means a detective Conan.
key words- search, imouto, psychology, father, debt, several heroines

Is it ecchi? a bit, but not to love ru. mostly for comedy such as - you are the coach so you can't see us as women.
No, you do not need to like sports or understand pro wrestling. heck, I dislike almost all sport anime cause I'm jealous that I can't do such things ( so I did 10 pushups while reading this manga). the selling point is the character relations and the events.
basically pro wrestling is like battling in normal manga. fighting with hammers and out of ring takes place too ( heel vs something? you'll learn:P )
story. it actually has a really touching story. the protagonist loses his memory and works at el palacio (Spanish?) as a manservant . he does NOT have a harem, does NOT randomly pull clothes down and such retarded yuuki rito actions ( the idiot lead from to love ru )
the art isn't stellar but is acceptable. basically like the cover
characters- a great variety. their interactions are the main point of the story ( looking forward to their pasts , interactions, why are they at el palacio? etc. )
I liked it, I read it in one sitting and felt good about it.
definitely worth a test try. one may call this a hidden jewel. if I had to make an analogy it would be a rusty car that runs well. you'd think it'd break down but it doesn't
Thanks for reading . I hope you try (and enjoy it) Disfrutar! read more

However, the story is so much more.
If I had to sum it up, these robots want the protagonist's seed because of it may be able to create soldiers and there were two people who were sent to protect him.
This is better than most harems in my opinion because the story is somewhat coherent.
Also, the protagonist is far from cool but isn't that annoying.
The fights are quite fun and the possibility of more allies from the future to counter the past and the truth in the future makes this story quite enticing.
Perfection? hardly. a fun romcom battle harem manga? yes
it's a good break from intense thinking activities. Try it, you have nothing to lose! read more

Well you aren't alone. Our protagonist here fights this world of panty shots, boobs and such with only his martial arts and his gut.
Secret technique of the ape! put on some pants woman...
But seriously. that's the general synopsis.
why is this great?
non perverted protagonist
many bad asses (especially our mc, understanding one should develop both brain and body)
pretty good art ( some characters are pretty, some ugly, some ugly for comedy, at least some characters will suit you)
Awesome humor ( dude fighting vs fan service. Nuff said )
raging battles combined with comedy and fan service negation
Why may one shy away?
well to fight against fan service, there must be a bit of it at least ( mostly for humor )
a wide range of characters means some may not be your favorite ( cough second and third year leaders )
may not be family friendly
battle oriented not romance oriented
One should definitely try this manga out as it has many novel aspects and is very enjoyable ( for me ). Reading a chapter can bring a smile to a gloomy day. Manly battles with humor, fan service ( negation ) and cute moments. What are you waiting for? ( maybe a gloomy day to be cheered up on:P ).
I personally recommend this to be read alone, not at a library or cafe to avoid a tinge of compunction. but hey, if you like doing stuff like that go ahead. freedom eh?

A second chance in living raises a bunch of opportunities, and allows one to take actions that they may have been unable to do otherwise.
This manga is nothing short of a masterpiece. Through a beautiful introduction, it shows the friendship between two boys, only to have one of them die, not knowing if his friend truly appreciated his efforts. His friend's simple wish, to marry a wife and live an average life, could not be fulfilled with him. So then he becomes a ghost and possess the daughter of a celebrity, trying to suicide under the pressure of her life.
Well that's the synopsis, recapped but it doesn't exactly explain how and why it is a "masterpiece".
Firstly, the characters. As many may agree, characters are the main course of the meal. Without noteworthy and enjoyable characters, it is difficult to construct a good manga. The characters in this story are absolutely fantastic. A girl who actually understands that the ghost possessing her is doing good, a popular playboy who actually has feelings for his friend ( he's in a girl's body so it isn't gay... I guess? ), and a detective who fell in love with the ghost possessed portion of the girl. Their interactions are interesting and help develop the story without boring fanservice and such. Also they are all very lovable ( except for the detective kid, but he's amusing ) and realistic ( if you get past the fact that there are ghosts ).
The story premise, as you've read in the synopsis is really interesting. Possession, romance and the other genres this manga circumspects are very enjoyable. In addition, it takes trite settings such as an amusement park and adds a bit of spice to it. In the amusement park, the ghost actually sets up a date between the girl and his friend to get them closer, while needing to cancel the meeting with the detective. However, the detective is able to figure out that it was actually the ghost but the ghost took over the girl's body... Well you get the point right? Spoiling is really terrible so that's where I'll conclude the story explanation
The art is very pretty and facilitates the enjoying of the manga. No complaints there.
This is one of the most enjoyable manga I have ever read. Sadly I can't find any more chapters so I'll probably buy it online or something. Its romance develops beautifully and cutely.
Overall, as one of my favorite manga, I would say this a must read for people who enjoy romance with a twist. What are you waiting for? Read it!
PS sorry if I made any mistakes, feel free to tell me. I actually read this about a month ago but felt the need to spread this manga to fellow manga lovers. read more

The art is cute, the story is funny and the characters are funny as well.
However, what makes this series stand out is its use of scientific explanations for how an old geezer turns into a young girl, how invisibility works as well as how erections occur. It is partially blocked out so you have to guess parts of it but nevertheless it is amazing.
For example, it mentions how there are telomeres in DNA and chromosomes, REM (rapid eye movement), refraction of light and more. As someone interested in biochemistry, it is really exciting. But again, who doesn't enjoy knowing how things work and learning from manga ( I learned that the galaxy was 100k light years long from AKB49 ).
Lastly, I would like to mention how much I enjoy transformation stories and the havoc that ensues. If you enjoy science, transformations and humor, give this a try. Yay scientific manga :P read more

As many may be aware, Ova rarely contain much of a plot so there is not much progression.
Nevertheless, this OVA is hilarious, cute, and gives a new view for each characters ( not that much but ok ).
Can brighten your mood on a dim day
Longevity (haven't you heard laughing makes you live longer?)
Well there really isn't much story and your not going to get your "brainteaser of the day". If you want that, go to some detective site and try to solve the mystery ( I actually know people who do that ).
Basically, if you watched and enjoyed the original series and aren't seeking to criticize every single possible point such as "Squid people don't look like Ika musume", "aliens don't use magic" and "MIT people dont say 'don't mind'"(who knows? they might:P).
Alright, returning from my digression, as previously mentioned, watch for comedy, enjoyment, ebi and gesho purposes. If you haven't watched the preceding series, WATCH IT. But if you have and you enjoyed it (as you probably have, wandering here) WATCH THIS. All hail Ika musume! SHINRYAKU!
oh and the songs sound really cute. just wanted to point that out. and seiyuus, great! read more

Secondly this will be to explain what's up with joker and online (versions of the manga).
Lastly, this is based on my personal experience, meaning I may be incorrect. Please feel free to correct me or give constructive criticism. thanks
To begin, I would like to say read joker before online or concurrently. Otherwise you would miss the introduction of many characters (it makes it a lot more confusing). Also, most online is the online version. However, simply reading the online version will still give you enough details to understand the story. Even so, there will be a feeling of emptiness, as if you missed a chapter or two ( I honestly checked if I did ).
The manga is a sweet love comedy, with the plot progressing(somewhat). More characters are introduced and the backgrounds of main characters are revealed. As it is partly 4-komu (fits a ton into a single page) not every panel can be copacetic. However, it helps as the plot does not lag on endlessly ( eg. taking 100 chapters to confess, it takes 1 ).
The characters are very cute, and the main character is able to be decisive and only love his girlfriend ( yes, he does not have a harem ).
Overall, it is a very fun manga and definitely worth your time if you want some humor. Try it when you're in the mood! Have fun on your manga adventure!
ps. it is always advisable to read the translator's notes. it helps clear up jokes and explains items (or tells you to google it). the translator is pretty funny too! read more
