Tousuke Rokudou is a first-year attending Aomori High, a school full of delinquents. He is often bullied by his classmates due to his incompatibility with their behavior, the only exceptions being his two good friends who are also social outcasts. Frustrated at the way they are treated, the three wish they could stand up and claim the fun, peaceful school life of their dreams.
However, Tousuke's life takes a drastic turn when he receives a package from his late grandfather containing their family heirloom, a scroll said to possess the power to save him from impending danger. Upon holding the scroll, a sudden glow emanates, leaving a strange mark on Tousuke's forehead.
Thinking that he's received the means to free himself and his friends from their daily treatment, Tousuke is shocked to find out that its effects are far different than what he had imagined. Although his bullying continues, he realizes that the mark from the scroll acts as a charm, capturing the hearts of delinquent girls—in particular, Ranna Himawari, the strongest of them all.
This manga is about a guy who uses a scroll from his grandpa to give him the power to combat demons in an attempt to survive a delinquent school, however instead this gives him the magical ability to charm all delinquent girls to fall madly in love with him. Ok so the story is not the best, but there is one reason i find this story great: Its like a Tsundere story that isn't complete ass mixed with Yandere harem, like every girl in this harem is a badass in some way but you
don't get the stupid slapstick because the girls are threatening enough that you don't need it, though it could blow it in the future, but for now its fun.
Art 8 -
I like the art it has dark styles, and it can be weirdly cute or sexy whilst also being threatening, and its not A-1 style, and not drawn in MS paint its great moving on.
Character - 6
Eh seen worse but its pretty bland but does the job with some good reactions, i especially like one of the friends the MC makes later its a fun friendship they have.
Enjoyment - 8
You read this for the fun scary faced demon women, and stay for some of the sap, its fun, and doesn't go too weird without purpose, or hentai-esc just for some cheap attempt at fan service.
Overall - 8
I think this series has some potential, and i could see some cool future arcs with supernatural stuff coming in without it being forced assuming its not axed, give it a read, and you might enjoy this.
It's always the best feeling when a manga can defy the odds of being terrible based on the synopsis. Rokudou no Onna-tachi actually has a quite a unique set up, but the concept is so bizarre that I thought it would just fall into a bottom of the barrel type harem trash. Fortunately, even from the beginning, the depth of the characters and camaraderie shown really project a very wholesome story of a kid just trying to live in peace. This was the biggest surprise, how much character development each character receives. Of course, not all character development is created equal, some are very shallow
and pass the bare minimum, while others like Iinuma, Rokudou, and several antagonists receive plenty. What keeps it interesting is each character's interactions and there are nice comedy bits spread throughout the manga. I would've preferred more of it, but I can understand why it wasn't the case.
It took a long time for the manga to have a clear direction, but everything leading up to it serves as a prerequisite to where it ultimately will end up. Keeping it vague so I don't spoil, but it will lead to more character development for MC and several others. Each arc thus far has been solid, nothing too crazy, nothing too dumbed down, but they were all over the top. Looking for reason and logic in your fight scenes? You should look somewhere else probably, since this has a lot of friendship is the best power. As I stated before, it is a very wholesome series with slight dark undertone at certain points of the story, but generally is a very happy go lucky series.
The characters are outstanding. Rokudou as a harem MC doesn't stagnate and is always progressing, albeit a little slow, but very fast as of the chapter read at the time of this write up (128). The surrounding cast is excellent and continue to grow along with our MC, at an even faster pace. The relationships between everyone is unpredictable since it's a story about delinquents, twists and turns are abundant in this. Colonel, Kachou, and Iinuma are some of the best bros I've seen in anime/manga, and they get a lot of screen time which makes the main group we follow a really compelling story. The girls also get good character development, but most of them are shallow. This is by far the strongest point of the manga.
Hard to imagine with a synopsis of MC getting a power to attract girls that a story with depth can be written. Gotta say, this is one of those diamonds in the rough and can rival some of the best series with school settings. Although I'm not in love with the art and where the story is going, the rare slice of life bits mixed with the harsh points in the story create a very well balanced dynamic. It lets the reader enjoy the pureness of the characters while anxiously waiting for a moment for them to kick ass.
This is my first review so it will not be perfect. (Contains minor spoilers) Rokudou no Onna-tachi is a highly under-rated and overlooked series that I would recommend to all shounen battle manga fans.
Story: Rokudou no Onna-tachi is about a boy named Rokudou who is unpopular and bullied until he suddenly obtains a scroll that gives him the power to make all bad women fall in love with him. in some of the first chapters, Rokudou is bullied by one of the delinquents in his class named Iinuma Haruya (who later becomes one of Rokudou's best friends after Rokudou challenges him to a fight). Unlike
most Harem manga, Rokudou no Onna-tachi's herione's are all very likeable characters.
Art: the art starts off decent but it becomes very good later on.
Character: the characters in this story (both design and development wise) are very dynamic characters with interesting personalities. Another aspect of this manga that is refreshing is how rokudou isn't a coward like most harem protagonists.
Enjoyment: Overall, Rokudou no Onna-tachi is a very enjoyable series with a very good cast of characters.
