In the medieval fantasy world of Alfheimr, succubus princess Astarotte Ygvar, the first princess of the kingdom of Ygvar, has just reached the age of 10. For the coming years of a young succubus' life, it is necessary for them to have a male harem. In order to maintain their body and preserve their beautiful appearance, they must consume a substance only found on males. This substance is a liquid called "Sauzfryma", better known as semen. The princess, however, bears a great dislike against men, and only agrees to create a harem if a human male is to join.
In the human world Midgar, young father Touhara Naoya was greeted by a suspicious lady one day, claiming that she is a fortune teller. She also claims that she can help him find the "perfect job" fitted for him. Even though it seems suspicious, he accepts the free consultation in order to support himself and his young daughter. After meeting in the park with the suspicious lady a day later, he suddenly found himself in Alfheimr, a medieval fantasy realm located on a different world. The mysterious lady uncloaks her true identity as the Head Chamberlain of the kingdom of Ygvarland. He was then lead to the palace of Ygvarland, and there, the "job" he accepted was finally revealed; he was to become a human candidate for princess Astarotte's harem.
Let me preface this by saying I'm open to most kinks and have nothing against those of the loli disposition.
Also, this review will contain a few spoilers to illustrate why I have the opinion I do regarding it.
If I had to describe this series in one word, it would be disturbing.
Yea it certainly had it's cute and funny points, but at the end of the day it's a manga about getting a 10 year old girl to suck the dick of 23 year old man. Who is attracted to said 10 year old. Who also fucked said 10 year old's mother. Who has fucked
one of her 3000+ fuck buddies in the same bed as said 10 year old.
Yes, you read that correctly. The 10 year old protagonist's mother has had sex with one of her 3000+ fuck buddies while her 5 year old daughter is in the damn bed.
To top it off, we're left with the implication that said 10 year old marries that 23 year old man, who incidentally fathered her unknown to her, elder sister. Yes, she married the father of her sister. Oh yea, we're also left with the implication that said 10 year old's nymphomaniac mother is banging said 23 year old man again.
Disturbing, that is all.
Very cute and pretty.
I like lolis as much as the next guy, but even I find this kinda freaky. Can't really enjoy something when I'm afraid of getting arrested for reading it.
Due to the disturbing nature of the story.
This might tickle the fancy (Literally as well as figuratively) of some lolicons out there, but it certainly is not for me, and other who may find such things unnatural or disturbing.
This is a really strange manga to describe for me. I feel like I get what they were going for, but I also don't. The core of it seems to be focused on love, parental love, romantic love, etc. of all types and of all combinations. However, its presented in a really strange way, where it's happening randomly and there are a lot of blurred lines that feel really awkward. It was certainly different from anything else I've ever read. The story is primarily about Naoya and Rotte, and that's the relationship that the manga closes on. But the development of that was so strange with her mother and sister and everyone
else involved and that combined with just the general free tone of the manga made it a very different type of love story I guess. Nothing seems to actually be happening for most of the manga, at least in ways that I can explain, but it's still moving forward sort of. The world itself was pretty generic, though they seemed to focus on aspects different from the ones usually focused on by a large margin which made it somewhat interesting, and the comedy was reasonably solid, though also strange in that it was once again a lot 'freer' for lack of a better word. The art too was decent enough, but it had strange elements to it, especially the framing. Ultimately, I don't particularly feel that it was that good or that bad, rather it was just strange.
tl;dr: A manga about love that is quite strange and unique though maybe not for the better.
For many years, Succubi have been a source of many an erotic fantasy. Often pictured as beautiful women, they take a mans essence as a source of sustenance. But the glorious land of Japan was not happy with leaving this as it was. They needed something else... something more...
And this new development was to make the succubus a 10-year-old girl.
The keen eyed among you will have noticed that this manga, with several underage characters, is listed with an ecchi tag. As one might expect, these two facts lead to more than one uncomfortable moment.
However, the story, characters and humour, if you can look past the
uncomfortable air that this manga produces, are first-rate. There is many a cute moment, and a constant supply of humourous events.
Story - as said above, the story revolves around a 10-year-old succubus, rotte, and her first harem candidate, the canonically large cannoned Naoya. Having only, at this point, read 50 of the 70 chapters, I can say that it is an enjoyable story which progresses well and allows for the development of involved characters, relationships and plotlines.
Art - I am no art critic, and can get by with stick figures if the story is good enough, but this art is consistently cute.
Characters - The cast of characters are mostly memorable, and rarely boring or annoying. A new character is introduced every few chapters, either as a new main or a recurring side character. All of the characters seem to have some kind of development, but not a great deal. This is basically a slice-of-life after all.
Enjoyment - other than when the 10-year-old characters meet the ecchi tag, this is a cute and quite heartwarming manga, with a few twists from time-to-time to keep it interesting. There aren't many sad moments, if that's what you're in to, but there is a lot of humour.
Overall - This manga may have a questionable premise, but it is still worth the read, and i would recommend it to anyone who can see past the discomforting themes.
I have read this and am likely on a watch list with some government agency.
