When the two were still young, Saitou and Kawana Subaru were close friends. But with Subaru coming from a wealthy family, she was sent to the top school while Saitou had to settle for a regular education. But after painfully studying for years, he was finally accepted as a high school freshman through a scholarship program that only a handful of students are awarded. But what Saitou thought was going to be a heartwarming reunion turned out horrible. Subaru had grown up beautiful and was the most popular person in school as she was kind to everyone, all except towards Saitou who she seemed to despise.
Almost regretting his decision to come to the school, Saitou wishes that somehow their dorm rooms would connect to each other. Magically, because it turns out that Subaru wished the same thing, their wish comes true but, in return, Subaru loses her self-control for one hour per day. During that time, her erotic desire for Saitou, that she can normally hide, comes pouring out and her true intentions are revealed. He wants to take advantage of this once in a lifetime chance but doing so might jeopardize their relationship during the other 23 hours.

Kimi wa Midara na Boku no Joou is really short seinen ecchi romance. Because of its length it doesn't offer much story progression or character development. What it does offer, is damn good ecchi and some good comedy. Romance part is rather average from technical perspective but satisfying nonetheless. Despite axed ending and forced drama near the end, the story felt finished and not too rushed.
Cast is small. Other than
2 mains there are only like 4 side characters that that have any meaning for story. We get to learn some backstory for main pair and see different sides of their characters, but I'd say they are still pretty simple and don't really change over the course of story.
Art in this manga is really good. Character design and background are solid, but what is the most important is how well the author drew ecchi scenes. While drawing of bodies themselves could be better, the angles, motion and effect made them really erotic.
When it comes to enjoyment it should be pretty high for anyone who, like me, enjoys good ecchi that doesn't rely on flooding reader with boobs. On the other hand there is understandable turnoff in form of NTR scares. Still, it's a short manga with satisfying ending, that at times can be more erotic than many hentai titles. If you like ecchi in seinen version, then you definitely should try Kimi wa Midara na Boku no Joou.
It’s not every day a subscriber or anyone recommends you a manga of this caliber. You see shortly before reading this manga I read the manga Oretama. But a subscriber has recommended me a manga that surely should be considered a Hentai… yet it is not a Hentai, it is in fact a normal manga with a story. That being said, do not read this if you’re under the age to do so it is incredibly graphic. But I will say this, if you do choose to read this, it’s a short manga that is pretty funny all things considered.

You Are Dirty, My Queen is a short 2 volume Manga just spanning 13 chapters and is written by Lynn Okamoto, he is known for; Elfen Lied, Brynhildr in the Darkness, and Parallel Paradise. This manga of course has not been adapted into an anime like the first two manga I mentioned, and I wouldn’t expect it to be. The art though is done by Mengo Yokoyari, she is know for manga like; Haruwaka, Scum’s Wish, Retort Pouch, and the Hentai Manga, Mokkai Shiyo. Besides doing straight up Hentai, her work seems to be more oriented on ecchi, usually the more extremely graphic side of ecchi. Two of her works have been adapted to anime, one being Scum’s Wish and the other being the Mokkai Shiyo into a hentai anime.
The story for this one is a little… thin to say the least. There isn’t a whole lot of story here to be had at all, and the story we do get is to really just basically set it up. Everything else after that is really based on jokes and thinking of weird scenarios to put the characters in. This will never be a story you read just for its plot. This is a story your will read because you get to see a lot of nudity and how funny it is in a ridiculous way. And I guess let’s talk about the comedy as it’s the best part of this series, at least to me. The comedy is centered around basically being incredibly pervy and adult oriented. There aren’t a lot of jokes here that aren’t meant to be anything more than either cringey or raunchy. But the jokes as is are pretty funny, they’re over the top and just kinda pokes fun at sex in general. The dialogue here is absolutely ridiculous too, and is one of the reason’s I find it so hilarious. I can’t repeat is here sadly as it’s not something that’s Youtube friendly and I don’t want to get a strike.
For the characters there is absolutely no development here or focus on any sort of it. It doesn't even focus on the romance aspect of it for any more than a couple of pages. All you really get is that Saitou and Subaru are childhood friends and they love each other dearly, but also Subaru is a nymphomaniac who literally and I am using this term correctly, literally masturbates all day every day. That’s all of the characterizations right there, so basically none is what you get. If you want deep characters this is not it and this is the biggest downfall of this manga.
Alright here is where I kinda have to for the first time ever commend an ecchi manga for its art. The art here is by far some of the most… detailed. Ugghhhh I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s actually good okay. To start off I like the character designs a lot, I feel they’re very well designed and quite unique to the series itself. Then again we really only see two characters throughout the whole series besides our main female leads sister, and no don’t even start, it doesn’t get that bad. The nudity is also another facet of this as well, and while I don’t read or even watch Hentai, I noticed how covered with sweat they all were. I don’t know if that’s good or not, or if that’s just something people like… but there is a lot of it for sure. Also weird mist coming out of Subaru’s mouth is weird, don’t know what that’s about either. I’m not going to judge it too hard based off this, as I honestly don’t know if this is a bad or good thing for Ecchi manga that border on hentai, as I don’t read hentai or Ecchi usually. So I mentioned them here because some may enjoy it.
This is a short review for a short manga, but don’t misunderstand I enjoyed my time with this manga quite a bit. It wasn’t terrible by any standards and it knew how ridiculous it was and just continued to go more and more ridiculous with each panel. If you like terribly over the top fanservice and ecchi, then this is for you. If you like romance, story, characterizations… well this is not for you at all and you should avoid it.
Kimi wa Midara na Boku no Joou is a rather unique ecchi manga. When coming across sexual scenarios in manga, people tend to think along the lines of, "This is hot/intense." Kimi wa Midara, on the other hand, gives off a different vibe. During the sexual scenes in Kimi wa Midara, my thought process was often, "awwww." Yes, that's right, I found it adorable. The way the scenes were portrayed made me smile instead of the common undivided attention & emotionless face. Now let me get on to the actual review.
Story : 7
The story revolves around 2 childhood friends, Saito Akira and Kawana Subaru. Subaru
is rich while Akira would probably be somewhere around middle class meaning they would end up going to different schools. In order to stay close with her, Akira decided to study as hard as he could to get into her prestigious school on scholarship. He did get in, but unfortunately for him, she now treats him as if he's the lowest form of scum despite being known as a lady of good etiquette.
One day, Akira overheard a rumor about a god who grants wishes. Later that night, Akira jokingly wished that his and Subaru's room were connected. Much to his and Subaru's surprise, the wish came true! In return for granting their wish, god decided to take Subaru's self-control for 1 hour every day. During this hour, Subaru reveals her true-self: someone who is beyond infatuated with Akira.
The plot is interesting indeed, but it doesn’t feel particularly new. However, given the fact that the manga is first and foremost, an ecchi manga, there’s not much to expect from the plot in the first place. With that being said, the plot is enough to keep you engaged and amused.
Plot aside, the romance is extremely satisfying. The manga doesn’t shy away from portraying physical intimacy that isn’t just falling on top of the other person and accidentally groping them. There is kissing, moments that are a few actions just short of actual sex, and then there’s actual sex. I think you get the point by now.
With a plot like this, it wouldn't be surprising for the plot to tread into dark grounds, e.g. Subaru hooking up other guys during her loss of self-control. Luckily enough, her lust only extends to Akira.
All in all, Kimi wa Midara is a highly satisfying romance ecchi manga with a good enough story-line.
To me, the art is the strongest point of the manga. Seeing as how it's an ecchi, it'd be pretty embarrassing to have mediocre art. Personally, I think Subaru is one of the most well-drawn female characters. Akira as well is nicely drawn. He may not be crazy handsome, but it is definitely a step up from our usual ecchi protagonist.
Saito Akira is one of the better ecchi protagonists. He doesn't look like a complete dork, is kind, smart, and best of all, not dense. He knows every single action that Subaru tries to hide from him. Next, we have Kawana Subaru. I'm the kind of guy who has a deep hate for tsunderes, but Subaru's one of the few exceptions. For one thing, she isn't a loli. While it doesn't exactly justify her actions, Subaru at least has the looks to act cocky. Secondly, it's pretty hard to hate her because she is just extremely cute when she goes into dere-dere mode. The two leads may appear to be contrasts of one another, but in reality, they are quite similar. Both characters suffer a substantial amount of insecurity, thinking that they are not what the other desires as a lover. In the end though, they understand that they truly love every part of each other. There are supporting characters, but I don't find them to be crucial enough for me to talk about them.
Since this is more of an subjective standpoint than an objective one, I'll surely give this part a 10. Setting aside character development, plot, etc. Kimi wa Midara is a fun little story. It's heart-warming to the point where I find even the sexual parts cute. There isn't over-the-top drama and every chapter managed to put a smile on my face. The story is so appealing, I forget about all the bitter endings of the manga I previously read.
Kimi wa Midara na Boku no Joou has an interesting plot, likable characters, and good character art. It also has its fair share of comedy. I believe the first chapter had one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen in manga. If you're looking for a relatively light-hearted romance with nice characters, personality wise and aesthetically, and don't mind sexual content, then please check this out! Best part is, it is only 5 chapters long, so it shouldn't take up any of your time at all!
