This manga felt like watching a bad porno with a bad plot, but no porn. It seemed that most of the story was meant to put the characters in a situation in which they could have sex, yet the sex scenes weren't that great. For instance, if you are going to write a lame set up to a three-some, then the three-some should actually happen, right? If you were hoping for a story full of angst and secret love then look elsewhere. Although the plot contains slight (very slight!) traces of these elements, it's mostly centered around a silly storyline in which one of
the main characters is thought to bring good luck. The story presents itself as depicting real people in a real setting. However, the story and characters themselves are scoffably unbelievable. Nobody would act the way the people in this manga acted, and the whole thing felt completely contrived. (Would you try to have sex with someone just because their Mom used to have the same name as someone who might be lucky? And how many of your friends know your Mom's maiden name, let alone strangers? Enough to encite a frenzied riot of horny achievers? I'm guessing not.) If you have low expectations and don't take it too seriously, there are a few chuckles intertwined, and the art is decent, which might make it worth reading if your bored enough.
