Mimori Hibiki's goal was to find love, after leaving her backwater town for schooling in Tokyo. However, her grandmother's demand that she use her feminine wiles to lure a groom back to her hometown, combined with a fateful meeting with a young man, has complicated matters. Now she must attempt to juggle emotion and obligation as she attempts to carry out both of these tasks.
Let's make this clear, this is pretty much an ero-manga, borderline hentai manga with tons and tons of sex scenes. So those looking for a good old vanilla story to read and experience, you're barking up the wrong tree. The manga is basically told in an episodic format and I believe some panels were carried over or touched upon by the characters. Though, that isn't anything special either. In a nutshell; female lead (our protagonist/narrator) begins her college life and is forced to find a suitable groom to bring back home to her family. The bulk of the manga is showing the readers her endeavors to fulfill her goal. The story is set in a mature university/college setting with the majority of the panels occurring at school or at the character's homes. The sheer amount of sex scenes pretty much overwhelm whatever is left of the story so... take it as you will.
I found the artwork pretty decent considering it was published in 2006. Though a minor complaint is that despite taken place in a post high school/mature environment, the art didn't really match. Sure they were college kids, but they looked like high schoolers to me. They were drawn a bit on the childish side; i.e, tiger fangs(?), round and chubby faces, silly body proportions and etc. As for color pages, I don't recall any specifically that stood out, if they were any at all.
The black hole of this manga for sure. Outside of being mindless, lustful and sex-hungry creatures, the characters were pretty much flat as an airplane strip. Of course given the nature of the manga itself, I don't know what I was expecting though. I still did enjoy their antics and the ridiculous situations they got themselves into but none of these characters were memorable. The female lead has some spunk in her but that isn't really a compliment of her "character".
Despite the stupidity and the sheer ridiculousness of some chapters, I did enjoy reading it. Now this enjoyment, I'm not sure what it really stems from. Was it because of the ero aspect? Was it due to the the fact that it was stupid to the point of being remotely funny? I can't quite put a finger on it for now but I know for sure that this manga is not something I'd bother reading again. Overall, nothing spectacular as it's simply something to "read" and move along.read more
