Yatsuki Nishizuru, a part-time worker in Akihabara, has the unique ability to see and interact with spirits— youkai—who inhabit the area. Despite this, Yatsuki tries to ignore them, living a normal life by working, taking care of his younger sister Nanao, and visiting a local maid cafe. However, Yatsuki's life suddenly becomes much more complicated after a strange girl falls out of a tree and onto his face. This girl, Rokka Ayatsuji, quickly becomes friends with Yatsuki and Nanao, until they discover that she is actually a Rokurokubi, a soul-eating youkai who can stretch her neck to incredible lengths! At the same time, Yatsuki reveals his sister's body and spirit are separate—Nanao is a ghost.

At the same time, one of the cafe maids, Momo Chitoseya, becomes possessed by a dark spirit. Yatsuki and Rokka's exorcising it draws the attention of Momo's sister Nagi, a professional medium, who enlists them for youkai extermination. In exchange for Yatsuki defeating the more dangerous youkai in Akihabara, Nagi will look for a way to return Nanao's spirit to her body. No longer able to ignore the secret world around him, Yatsuki must begin his quest and continuously risk his life in order to return his sister's.

tl;dr: An action and ecchi filled manga that’s definitely messy, especially in the first half, but that’s ultimately still really good.

This manga is an ecchi shounen battle manga that as you would expect from the title has a heavy emphasis on yokai girls. The core of it is that the protagonist Yatsuki, has spiritual powers, and thus he is asked by a fortune teller named Nagi to help deal with the various yokai causing problems around Akihabara. Along the way he picks up an assortment of yokai allies that help him out, eventually even gaining the ability to use them as weapons in battle through ...

Preliminary (79/146 eps)
There's minor spoiler in my review.
Overall, it's Monster Musume mix with To Love-ru with High school dxd and Luminous Arc 2(game). The type of harem + fan service manga you see everyday, but this has stuffs that make the difference:

- It has a decent plot. It's not completely original but the manga is good at keeping me to keep reading for plot, and fan service.
- MC is not useless, he can fight, he improves himself. From someone who freaks out over a harmless youkai girl, later become someone who wants to protect innocent youkais and doesn't tolerate senseless killing. He can be a punching bag ...

Preliminary (46/146 eps)
Youkai Shoujo is a must for all monster girls fans.
The story is about a guy who gets involved with several monster girls. There is quite a bit ecchi content. And that is where the similarities to MonMusu mostly end. Even the monster girls don't overlap.

Story: 7/10
While the MC has a goal, the story has kind of a ...
