Shouta's an otaku who's only love in the world is manga. One day, he happens to wish for one of his favorite character, Nagihara Sora, to be by his side...and so she does! But what is he to do when he finds that his gentle and weak Sora has turned out to be a violent gou-dere (an unstoppable force that does whatever she pleases for her master, out of her love for her master) who views the world as a ero-game to be conquered for his sake?
Gou-Dere Bishoujo Nagihara Sora is a crazy comedy/ecchi manga. And by crazy I mean CRAZY. And by CRAZY I mean CRAZILY FUNNY. From the same person who made Sora No Otoshimono (which had lots of, surprisingly, comedy and ecchi) comes a manga that somehow manages to be filled with even more sexual references/scenes and even more outrageous comedic moments, but is a little weaker on the plot side.
WARNING: 99.9% of this humor is sexual in nature, so it is not for everybody. However, having been through quite a few manga of this kind, Gou-Dere Bishoujo Nagihara Sora is the first that has made me laugh
so hard... So it's probably worth it to check out anyways even if you're not a fan of this stuff.
Story: You usually wouldn't read a manga like this for the story, but for what it's worth, the "arcs" usually last no more than a few chapters and consist of either development of relationships between the characters, or absurd situations that always lead to something ridiculously sexual (not saying that in the "normal" parts of the story this doesn't happen either...) It isn't terrible, but any parts of the story that try to be remotely serious are pretty average so far, although everything else (the 90% of the story that isn't serious) is very creative and entertaining.
Art: The art is pretty good quality, with some nice shots of some certain female characters when the scene needs it... (*coughecchicough*). Special mention goes to the "2-D art of death" frames, which are basically outrageous special moves... It's not everyday that you'd find a mangaka who would draw some of the ridiculous things that happen in those.
Character: There are two kinds of characters in Gou-Dere Bishoujo Nagihara Sora. The first kind, which includes quite a few of the main female characters, is filled with "average" or "typical" characters, who behave rather normally and shy away from awkward sexual situations with a "Huh!?" or a "Kyaa!"...
Then, there's the characters who aren't so normal (in the head), who are either fine with these situations, or are the ones who create them, and in both cases, their outrageous characteristics and personalities shine through and create the humor. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say that the characters are what makes the manga so funny, and one should not expect much meaningful character development from a series that is all about the comedy, although there is still some development. Just the personalities that we get to begin with are already very creative, unique, and hilarious (for the second kind of characters).
Enjoyment: This manga is hands down the most enjoyable one that I've ever read in the comedy/ecchi genre, period. I literally could not stop laughing. Neither could my friends. The only one who wasn't laughing was my mother when she saw this on my screen, but even then I swear I saw a smile sneak through. There's something about the absolutely crazy style of comedy combined with the art and character personalities that really makes this manga truly enjoyable.
Overall, one would not read this series for amazing plot or complex character development, although the plot and characters are quite entertaining. If you ever want some extremely creative and hilarious (sexual) comedy, then this manga is the way to go.
This manga was hilarious. There were some attempts at giving it a plot and character development, but these all pretty much failed. There were some good scenes that felt like they had impact, but there really wasn't anything overarching at all. That's fine though because as stated the manga is hilarious, incredibly hilarious. There's an interesting combination of characters where some of them seem to have common sense, while others are completely crazy in unique ways, that leads to all sorts of amusing mayhem. There's some punchlines that occur again and again, but everything surrounding them is varied enough that it doesn't feel repetitive, rather I
think it may actually make it funnier. A lot of the humor is centered around tropes commonly found in anime, manga, games, etc. but while it certainly does acknowledge it and even make fun of it, it doesn't actually make them seem like a bad thing, which I felt was interesting and worked really well. The art was also incredibly good.
tl;dr: A manga that does a good job of trading plot and characters for absurdity and humor.
