Severely allergic to felines, Yuuto Amakawa spends his mornings nursing a drippy nose courtesy of his friend Rinko’s cat. But on his sixteenth birthday, it’s not just Rinko’s pet that’s riling up his allergies (to say nothing of his hormones)! Appearing before him is Himari, a buxom, sword-wielding cat spirit in human guise, who has sworn to protect Yuuto, now the target of vengeful spirits! It’s clear that Yuuto’s allergies are the least of his problems — he’s gonna need Himari’s help if he wants to live to see his seventeenth birthday!

Well Omamori Himari happens to be a Shounen, Supernatural, Action, Harem, Ecchi, Romantic, Comedy, Drama *breathe* yeah… that's quite a mouthful.

Set in modern-day Japan, an average teenage boy named Yuuto Amakawa, is taken care of by his childhood friend Rinko Kuzaki, ever since he lost his parents. Now ...

tl;dr: A manga with a good cast and good art that was clearly forced to drag on for longer than it should have but still manages to do a decent job overall.

This manga started off pretty interesting. The beginning introduces a good main cast of characters that are set up with decent personalities and backgrounds with what feels like the beginning of decent character arcs. The comedy is solid. The plot basically just amounts to introductions to the main characters, but these are pretty good and work well with the characters they focus on so it's all around pretty enjoyable to read.

In volume 4 it ...

This is a very, very, overused, unoriginal, and tired harem story. Harem story is one term, because harem stories can be very interesting and cool. However, this is one that you could get from anywhere else. There isn't anything new, even with this sort of supernatural-twist that comes with every harem series that has no originality to it.

Even as a person who doesn't really mind moe, there is moe prevalent throughout all the character designs. But I still wouldn't mind that. In fact, the girls in this series are quite cute. No, what makes this moe different is...nothing. This is art and ...
