High school student Usami Tooru bumped into his classmate Ayabe Reri, one day while taking a stroll. Ayabe is like an idol in their school, but she is a usually a quiet and honest beautiful teenage girl. But by chance that night, Tooru caught a glimpse of her skipping on top of a rail. The next day, Tooru was asked by Ayabe to keep what he saw a secret. How will the relationship of such an unlikely couple play out?
Disclaimer: only 4 chapters have been published at the time I'm writing this. My opinion might change later, but I have high hopes. Also, I intended this review to be short and sweet, but the minimum requirements by MAL are preventing me from that... But on to the real review!
So far, this manga has a nice touch of the supernatural (hint: look at girl's shadow on the cover), but it's still early enough that I don't know which direction it's going to take. It could be an intensely supernatural manga, or just a source of explanation for one of the characters.
I might be overlooking
something, but so far it doesn't seem to be leaning in the direction of "harem" either... However, there's enough ecchi to give the already good story an extra boost of interest. It's not really perverted, and it's not constant, so when the occasional nude happens, it's a nice little event.
The undertones of potentially strong romance are definitely there, and the art is (in my opinion) fantastic.
I can't give too much more than that, other than that this is interesting, and I look forward to each new chapter that comes out. (If this were a "completed" manga, I probably would have binged on it and read it in a weekend.)
It's my first review here and I decided to start with something simple. For starters, I like fanservice. Even this on-your-face-no-brakes-allowed fanservice that exists in works like To-Love-Ru and... here.
Fanservice is the best (and probably only) reason anyone would read ths, since it's well drawn, sexy and the "teens are horny yo" vibe works very well with its characters.
So far, the supernatural element is hinted at and used mainly as:
a) occasional nekomini
b) what passes for characterization
Art and fanservice are the only positives.
STORY is a typical bland harem series with generous amounts of fanservice that pushes the boundaries of what can be published in
a non-hentai magazine. It doesn't mean it's bad but it means that it won't really go anywhere else. If story is the starting point, this manga made a cabin on it and lives there happily.
CHARACTERS are also pretty bland. Main guy is wimp and a pushover but he has a good heart and apparently can't remember much of his childhood life (I won't spoil it more tho). His weak character is what allows the advances of all the other girls so he may be forgiven, I guess.
Main girl is... well, main girl. She acts very cat-like (so far we don't know how far is this true), so, expect possessiveness, sexual advances on and off "mating season", quiet demeanor and a loyalty to her man.
Also she is tall af so it counts points for me too lol
My ENJOYMENT wasn't that high because, well, I read it before in To-Love-Ru or in Zero no Tsukaima (except fanservice of course) or even in the great Sora no Otoshimono. BUT if you really like this harem shenanigans or simply aren't as seasoned as I am (it's not a really good or bad thing I just watch anime and read manga for a while), go ahead and enjoy it.
Girls are hot (main girl at least is and she has a lot of space to show it), plot knows not to overgrown its importance, pacing is ok too.
STORY - 3
ART - 7
CHARACTER - 4
ENJOYMENT - 6
OVERALL - 5
OVERALL is simple addition of all divided by 4, btw
