Natsumi Kawashima, an energetic fifth-grader, is obsessed with her fantasy of being the ideal, sexy woman. Rejected at every advance by the cute guys that she fawns over, she finally gets a break when she picks up a package of mysterious pink nuts that are adults only.

Eating these nuts causes her to morph into a voluptuous adult, and she's offered modeling opportunities and suddenly becomes noticed by guys who wouldn't have given her the time of day before.

But, she's still a kid inside and is about to learn that things don't always work out exactly as you hope they will... (Source: Tokyopop)

I have no business reading this, and if you are over thirteen or even just have a little sense of critical analysis neither does you. But since we are here, how about I tell you why.

Tokyopop is was a weird company with a habit of releasing everything they could get their filthy paws on. Then after years on decline they went under because of bad management. They had some good stuff and some that was frankly horribly bland and generic crap. Otona ni Nuts(Instant Teen) is one of the latter ones.

Otana Ni Nuts is definitely a strange manga that tells the story of a young 5th grade girl who only dreams of becoming a woman, and when I mean woman I mean the whole deal like, boobies, looks, and everything, mostly the sexiness though. The young heroine Natsumi, spins around adoringly in front of her mirror posing like the models from ‘America’s Got Talent,’ while saying her ideal line “sexy” with apples on her breasts to make them look like the sexy grown up boobies (mine are kind of small though). The manga explores the hardships in which little kids’ face, such as having read more

Instant Teen: Just Add Nuts, was one of the first manga series I ever read. I loved it. Alot. I forgot about it for awhile though, so I just added it to my list recently. The story was very interesting, and I loved the characters. I can't quite explain alot about it, since I have forgotten abit of it 'cause I haven't read it for years, but I think it's definatly worth reading. Thanks for reading this review, I hope you read and enjoy this manga :D

Otona Ni Nuts story was about a girl wanting to become an adult because of a barber. The story was good enough. The art was great. But the character of the girl was kind of... Well, irritating. We do have a reason why at times we dream of becoming an adult but if those nuts are true why go so far?? She always cause trouble. If I was her childhood friend I might not take it. The only character I liked was the childhood friend. Because of his love he would ALWAYS stand by her side. Although I did enjoy it. Overall, It's fair enough.
