Ever since an childhood incident, Chiaki has never been able to truly feel joy or have fun. One day, his traveling father sends him a mysterious cardboard box. Once opened, a girl who calls herself Cerberus pops out of the box! This girl, who has three personalities in one, vows to protect Chiaki from all harm. Will Chiaki be able to live with this three-in-one girl?
This is a masterpiece created by god. I never seen a manga as beautiful as this. This manga have everything you need. You want harem? there's harem. You want comedy? There's comedy. You want romance? there's romance. you want action? There's action. You want cheerful loli? There's cheerful loli. You want shy loli? There's shy loli. You want tsundere oppai? there's tsundere oppai. The angle of view during a fight scene is spectacular and the plot twist is amazing too. Basically this manga has all the things you need and every single details are beautifully drawn. It just sad that this manga ended
but I hope they are going to make an anime adaptation of this manga
As this is my first review on this site, please go easy on me. I'll also try to be as spoiler-free as possible.
To be frank, I've quite enjoyed it. The setting was nice, yet could have been better. I'll boil it down later on. The characters, especially the girls, were cute, especially the Cerberus trio.
Story - 8
The ending COULD HAVE been better if it weren't for the major plotholes in the last chapter. Literally the only thing I liked there were the confessions, but I'm sad how the protagonist just outright put them down with a simple apologetic phrase. Then just that. Kuro suddenly transforms
into a human with no concrete explanation given how and why after 2 weeks of her disappearance. lol how could she have survived in that dimension I wonder. Anyhow, the rest of the story was good enough for me.
Art - 8
At most parts, the art gets good. There are times that perhaps some may have not even noticed, or have probably just overlooked it, that it gets all wobbly. Not that it matters at this point as it's already a finished piece of work. Though, I gotta admit the action scenes were decent enough at its own way of being presented. It's real easy to follow.
Characters - 7
The characters, eh, not so good. All the credit however goes to the Cerberus trio. The others were just a nuisance. Haruna might be an exception, also Idora. Anyhow, back with what I was talking about. First off, Kuro. She was introduced to be the Cerberus sent by the protagonist's father from Greece, which I needed an explanation on how he's even gotten his hands on such a creature. And of course, she has to be the airheaded type. Despite her cuteness, her idiocy may not make up for what she had been doing until she was shown to possess a dark power. The reason being the emotions created by the first cerberus, Roze. I'll get to her later. Shirogane, is the tsundere type. She LITERALLY was the only character in the series I've seen develop so much after she had realized her true feelings for Chiaki. She kept on denying that, as she's a tsundere after all. She's the only tolerable tsundere I've encountered so far. Although there were some points where she has to excuse her emotions over something like her existence serving the purpose of Roze's feelings, as Roze created them for the sake of her well-being. That part of her kinda ticked me off a little bit, but she fills that in with touches of her cuteness. Lastly, Roze. As I've stated in my previous sentences, she was responsible of creating Kuro and Shirogane as means of emotionally balancing her. As stated in some parts of the manga, she is known to be very shy and is not good with people, but further on she has managed to develop herself simultaneously closing the gaps between her relationship with Chiaki. The thing about her past that was shown in a certain arc of the manga (where they ventured the depths of the underworld) was quite unnecessary, for in my opinion her reason of creating the two heads as she's claimed to be the "original cerberus" was only there to support her weaknesses. I'm not going to go into detail with Komone, as her only role there is to be that one girl in class who can't fulfill her love for a guy she strangely developed feelings for despite her failures. Glad she managed to cope up with herself till the end, honestly. Minnie deserved to be thrown in the trash. Her mere presence was completely insignificant, as she just cockblocks Chiaki in his good moments with the other girls.
Enjoyment - 9
Yes, I've enjoyed it to my heart's content. Regardless of what I said about the characters, the overall read was a ride. Not the best series out there, however. Would've been better if the author timed the events right. The last chapter felt rushed too, but whatever. It's already done.
Overall - 8
It was a fun read. I wish I can say more about the last chapter but I would just be spoiling how the story would end. Nevertheless, I loved the characters at most. There were just certain points I can't even comprehend, like how a powerless run-of-the-mill protagonist was even capable of surviving throughout the whole ordeal just to experience fun and smile. Let's be real though, he got some development despite all of that.
(sorry if I haven't made anything clear in case you don't get my standpoint)
That's all I have to offer. Thanks for reading my review. It was a pleasure.
Now, my rating may look confusing and there is a single reason, the ending, it plain and simply sucks utterly. There is no other way too say that, the manga is really enjoyable but I am a person that dislikes the whole story if the ending is utterly shit because it ruins everything that came before as well.
Now, others probably dissagree with me but I do not care, if you write such a light hearted romantic harem story, the story should either end with an actual harem ending or the author should make sure to not write all the chicks as likable charas only
to have most of them miserable at the end. Because that is exactly what happens in this manga at the end, all 5 are really likable but in the end 4 of them get a pure bad ending.
Hi guys this is my first time writing a review here on MAL so please go easy on me,and since ther isn't any reviews on this I decided to make one for this manga.As of making this review I've Read up to Ch.54.
TBH honest I read this manga on whim since I wanted to read somethi g and stumbled upon this beauty of a manga,
MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!
The artstyle of the manga is very pretty looking and is really easy on the eyes every scene is beautifully drawn and the characters themselves look pretty good,the action scenes are well made and easy to understand,it easily gets
you immersed into reading the manga as well.
The story is about a boy named Chiaki Mikado who is bitten by the cerberus eight years before present day of the manga which causes a chip in his soul which removes his ability to feel joy,prsent and we're introduced to an adult Chiaki who is socially awkward and is treated as a weirdo in his school because if his inability to feel joy,so others tend to avoid him,one day Chiaki receives a Mysterious looking package from his traveling dad,he opens the package,to only reveal a cute girl to suddenly pop out of the box,this mysterious girl is named Kuro and claims to be the cerberus and says that Chiaki's Father asked her to keep an eye on Chiaki ,she as well claims to be his guard dog to protect him from monsters that may attack him cause of the chip in his soul which is a very rare occurence and attracts monster,she also wants to help him return to normal.
The story itself was reallt goos and interesting,though the harem tag might make you think that this is going to be your typical harem,but it's not,the story starts of a little slow but it picks up really quickly,the story manages to keep you interested in what's going to happen next chapter and plus the story gets better and better as you read further in the story
Overall the characters in this manga are really the thinga that I really liked about his manga other than the interesting story,For starters it has well rounded and easily likeable characters,the story doesn't have too many characters so everyone is given time to develop their personalities,the members of Chiaki's harem all have great personalities though starting off pretty much like your stereotypical harem manga,all the the aren't introduced in the same time,some are introduced later in the manga,What I kiked with this manga like I mentioned earlier that each character is given a lot of time to develop their personalities as well as give depth as to why they like Chiaki,unlike a lot of harems where the male friends are perverts along with the MC ,this manga has none of that,the MC like many other harem protags starts of dense,but,as the story progressess gets less dense as he learns more about his situation and the people that surround him,
The supporting characters aren't half as bad as I thought they would be,they,like the Main Characters are given time to develop,the supporting characters add a lot to the progression of the story as they help out the MC in accepting and learning more about his condition,as they help him return to normal.
I personally really enjoyed reading this manga,with its intersting story and well rounded characters that add a certain charm that makes this manga way more enjoyable compared to other harem manga.the development here is another thing to look forward to when reading this not just with the story but fo the characters as well.
If you're looking for a good harem manga or even if you just want to read something good and interesting,then I highly recommend this manga to you with its heartwarming story sure to make you feel happy(not to mention sad) while reading m and learning a lot of valuable lesson in life as well
Thanks for reading this though I'm Very sorry if there are any typos or grammar issues and for me being repetitive.and if I confused you a little while reading this review.
