Japan in the future has a massive over-population problem. Scientists have traced the root of this problem to one particular individual, Junta Monamari. According to their records, Junta was a "Mega-Playboy" who sired children with over a hundred women. Each one of his sons inherited the Mega-Playboy gene too, so the problem grew exponentially from thereon.

Meet Karin Aoi, a "DNA Operator." Karin is sent back to the past with a mission: to alter Junta's DNA and prevent him from ever becoming the Mega-Playboy, thereby eliminating the world's overpopulation problem. Junta's DNA can only be altered by shooting him with a special bullet called DCM which contains the chemical for suppressing the Mega-Playboy DNA. In return, Karin gets a vast sum of money... enough to make all her dreams come true. Will Junta become the playboy he is destined to be, or will his better self prevail? But Karin is falling for the real Junta too... and what of the sweet and kindly Ami who has secretly loved Junta all her life? What will happen to future Japan?

This manga appears rather boring on the first glance but trust me after you read the 1. Volume you want to buy the other four, too.

The story seems pretty simple at first: Some girl from the Future trying to make things better. Sounds boring?

Unexpectet? when reading the first time: yes. after that the ...

Ok, just to get another view on this manga.

I read the first few chapters years ago and was amazed!
Now I had the chance to finish reading this manga and I think all the years of waitinig in suspense for a great manga...were a waste of time.

The art was great, sensei is known for his great art.

The story and characters weren't good imo.
I got the impression, that the author took all his favorite moments from Dragon Ball and put them into a sci-fi enviroment, with some ecchi added.
It was complete nonsense. Even though the emotions and values shown were decent, but overall I didn't enjoy reading ...

While it started out promising, I've never seen a rom-com manga drop harder than Quantumania's second week box office. That's right. At its core DNA2 is a rom-com, with the potential to deliver the outlandish, sensuous, hilarious, emotional, and ultimately escapist teenage drama that rivals Ranma and Yatsura. Unfortunately I have no idea what editor thought it was somehow a good idea to turn the series' direction into a Dragon Ball knockoff second act in, and then an attempt at harem with a random incest event thrown in for no reason, and then it finishes with...social commentary? (Insert confused face) In the end this turned ...
