A pretty hilarious take on a boy and "monster-girl" romantic-comedy. The manga is told to us via the male lead serving as the narrator with the story progressing neatly in a continuous format. I must admit, this overall story was done very well and the pacing gets an A for both effort and execution. The comedy was aplenty, the supernatural/fantasy aspects was a nice touch, the romance was very cutesy (the harem wasn't really that strong), and when it came down to it, the drama was implemented rather well. Not sure if this counts a spoiler, but the whole feet licking thing was pretty
weird for me, though one could argue that it added a unique spin on things- still pretty weird though in my opinion. As for the ending, it wasn't rushed and offered a satisfying wrap up to the story.
Artwork was wonderful. The color pages made for some excellent presentation. There was definite a change in the art, more of an improvement in my opinion. After the first 2 or 3 chapters, the art became more smooth and refined. In the early chapters, some of the art was a bit sketchy-like with an excessive amount of texture, shading and toning. The mangaka would eventually tone it down resulting in more defined art work overall. However, textures were still heavily present. Not sure if it was a technique done for visual presentation for depth but I'd prefer less, please. The designs for our characters- whether mains or side ones were drawn really well. The male lead seemed to get the short end of the stick aesthetically as a majority of the effort and attention to detail were focused more on the females; but hey I'm not complaining.
I believe the full cast is composed of our male lead and 5 female characters. A witch, her companion/partner who both serve as plot drivers, the female protagonist and romantic interest, the little sister and the classmate. So by definition, a harem- what an assemble huh? Not let me be clear, I quickly skimmed through the manga (I read this a while ago contrary to my review date) and as soon as I got caught a quick glance of one of the females I could immediately recall most if not all of their interactions, roles and scenes throughout that chapter. Now you may think I have pretty darn good memory but it's more of a testament to how memorable the characters were. They were truly unique with a personality to match.
A very enjoyable read that I would recommend to anybody. The variety and combination of the genre tags might seem a bit off putting but setting aside the fantasy and supernatural aspects, deep down Perowan! contains a rather decent love story in it's roots. For those familiar with Harumi Chihiro's manga [Come Come Vanilla!], the premise of the stories are similar but Perowan! is more fleshed out in detail with a more varied cast of characters.
When I started this series, there were quite a few times when I thought about dropping it because it really seemed like something nearly breaking past ecchi and bordering on nearly H, but the way they wrap the story up was just perfect, and completely changed my opinion on the entire story. It is flawed, but those flaws help it to reach perfection.
To readers discretion, this does contain some ecchi scenes, but not so intense that it's full nudity.
I like the story quite well as it is trying to teach our main protagonist that all living things should share the same equal freedom and luxury that humans have.
Manga was short, disappointing at that but overall it was to my taste, even with the female dominating the man for most of the series.
Perowan!: Hayashinasai! Goshujin-sama is about a young man named Inukai Shirou who's dog somehow got turned into a really sexy woman. Machiro is his dog's name but now Machiro basically tells Shirou that he is the dog now.
*Caution there is a lot of ecchi moments in here. Not full on nudity but close.
This is a decent series with the biggest flaw it has is the fact that it is such a short series. The story is decent, the artwork is nice, the characters have good development, but the length of the series just made everything seemed like a rushed when you're like 3/4
through with it. Overall I would recommend this since its a short but good read.
The story is really interesting. It has a pretty decent plot not too complicated but enough to keep the reader intrigue. It is a decent love story but you won't realize much of this not until later on in the manga. Of course this series is filled with lots of ecchi moments. There is no chapter that is ecchiless, so if you're not a fan of that, then this might not be your cup of tea. But if you look pass the ecchiness it is a decent story that you should give it a try.
I personally like the artwork of this series. The characters look really nice and the ecchi parts are of course pretty generic but good either way. The clothes are simple so its not that complicated.
The character development is pretty good in this series. The only thing it kind of lack was the cast, but with such a short series I can see why it mainly focused on the main character Machiro and Shirou. The character development between these two are pretty decent and is really cute. It is just sad that there wasn't a lot of character development for the other characters.
This was a pretty good read. At most it should take you like 2 hours to read because it is such a short series. The moments in the manga was really cute and funny sometimes. But those ecchi moments can kind of get old.
