Aoi is the heir to his family, but due to some discord between him and his stepmother, he is forced to leave the house. And there to support him is his childhood butler, Miyauchi. After living his days being doted on and served, Aoi finds his position reversed, where he has to work all day. And what has supported him throughout this lifestyle is his unrequited love of 5 years for Jirou, the heir to the Saionji family, a leading automobile maker.
This might be very biased, but I truly enjoyed this manga to the fullest.
The story is based on a world centered on omegaverse- where anyone can become pregnant! The story was splendid. The mangaka gave stories to the characters that usually go unnoticed. And the development of characters was smooth, even for a shorter work.
The art was beautiful and modern.
Character development was smooth and was given where it was needed, leaving everyone with a happy wholesome feeling.
Enjoyment overall, when I wasn't smiling from ear to ear, I was feeling sadness and sorrow from the depth of my soul for the characters.
this manga. In the beginning, it was a bit hard to tell who was talking, but after rereading a bit I started to get it, and the dialogue distinction became better from there.
When I first found this title among popular yaoi mangas in mangago, I directly went and read it without knowing nothing much but that it's an omegaverse story. But now that I have finished reading, I'm not very sure why this was so popular or has that high of a rating in MAL.
There's nothing really special about the story. It's your typical omegaverse plot that is easily found among its genre. The plus point is that the delivery is actually quite good. The pacing is quite inconsistent, though. Jirou & the omega's story went too fast while the butlers' story went on too long. The
intercourse scenes were really good. Hot, but not too overwhelming and it complemented the story well. They didn't serve only as a basic filler. But as I said, the story itself was actually pretty bland. Nothing that differentiates this from other omegaverse stories.
The art was good but sometimes it was hard to distinguish characters when the hair color changes in a certain panel to fit a certain mood. It took me a few seconds to realize who's actually in the panel.
The characters' backstory was fleshed out enough, hence the score 7 for 'good'. I was more attached to Jirou and Aoi than Kudou and Miyauchi, so I got bored fast during the second half of the story.
The story was okay and it did make me feel for the characters. But it was not so special and it wasn't so memorable to me. In vacuum, this manga would've gotten a 7 because it was 'good'. But compared to other mangas, it was just the same if not above average. Hence, I gave this manga 6 for 'fine'.
"My master's first thought upon meeting him was... 'I'd like to have sex with him'."
Going into this story, I was under the impression that this would be a tale detailing the typical omega-alpha story between a butler and a master. Who doesn't read an omegaverse story with such a thought, right? Turns out, I was only half-right. The initial story line for the first three chapters talk about the developing love between an omega heir forced out of his own house to serve another and his master -- and the majority of the story fleshes out the romance story
of this high class omega's butler who follows him, which explains the title 'kashikomarimashita' (translating to 'Understood').
This story structure by itself has already proven to have some flaws when applied to Hitorijime my Hero, but unlike that other manga, this one proves to be well-supported by likeable characters who do not have a high pitched voice or is of your typical yaoi stereotype.
The first section, featuring Aoi the scion-turned-servant omega and Jirou the alpha heir, mostly caters to audiences who are here for the omega-alpha storyline. Things like 'true mates' which instantly allows them to be attracted to each other, the feminine omega who tries to display strength by understanding his role in society and putting himself to work in a system that goes again him. Somehow, not even the plot twist (which I will not say) disparages me from liking him any. Aoi's sincerity and hard work is endearing, damn it. I was almost sad when the story focus shifted away from him, but the short time spent with him allows us to easily comprehend his actions in the second part of the story without thinking him as the overly helpful friend slash master troupe.
The second section, which is over 75% of the story, speaks of Aoi's seemingly perfect butler who followed him to Jirou's mansion -- Miyauchi. This is where the real story plot comes in, because Miyauchi is a beta, and never, really, have I read an omegaverse story which stars a beta as the main focus. They're essentially normal people without heats. Why would anyone focus on them, right? And yet, it is because of this characteristic that Miyauchi and his love interest, the alpha Kudo, has such a beguiling love story.
What I appreciate most about this story is how it does not shy away from the one weak point it's painted in Aoi and Jirou's section of the story -- the flaw of each alpha and omega having only one true soulmate, and just that. Perhaps the mangaka already sensed it earlier on and hence shifted the focus to accommodate it. Miyauchi's story focuses on his struggles to accept that Kudo (Jirou's head butler) would have a soulmate out there; to overcome the hurt he has of being hurt by his mothers (yes, you read that right.) and the soulmate system in his early childhood; as well as his ongoing journey to learn to adore someone besides Aoi - who had saved him in his youth - and to express his own desires. It's refreshing to have such a perspective painted from a beta's POV, and Miyauchi's such a mature man, it makes me squeal to have him show a bit of weakness. (In terms of butler-ness, I'd say he's ranked a bit below Kuroshitsuji's Sebastian. It's nice to see how these butlers behave with regards to their own wedding verses their masters' wedding. Oh, these workaholics)
Overall, I'd highly recommend this to any people who want a good read - both with or without storyplots. But for people who don't have the slightest clue as to omegaverse... eehh. Do read the information covers included in the story. These are pretty common to other omegaverse stories too.
