Natsuo Fujii is in love with his teacher, Hina. Attempting to forget his feelings towards her, Natsuo goes to a mixer with his classmates where he meets an odd girl named Rui Tachibana. In a strange turn of events, Rui asks Natsuo to sneak out with her and do her a favor. To his surprise, their destination is Rui's house—and her request is for him to have sex with her. There's no love behind the act; she just wants to learn from the experience. Thinking that it might help him forget about Hina, Natsuo hesitantly agrees.
After this unusual encounter Natsuo now faces a new problem. With his father remarrying, he ends up with a new pair of stepsisters; unfortunately, he knows these two girls all too well. He soon finds out his new siblings are none other than Hina and Rui! Now living with both the teacher he loves and the girl with whom he had his "first time," Natsuo finds himself in an unexpected love triangle as he climbs ever closer towards adulthood.
This manga will go down in history as one of the greatest declines in writing quality.
The author, without spoiling much, writes in very serious issues and treats them as nothing and never shows us the consequences of actions. Chapter 52 to 114 is a brilliant example of this.
It's now got to the point, over 200 chapters in, where the author is just scratching their head thinking of how to force drama. Will they cheat? Will someone get stabbed? Is there gonna be a rape/murder/blackmail of some sort? Will MC make up his damn mind about a single thing (MC is a loser)?
The one saving grace
is the art. But that's really it and I'm not exaggerating. The phenomenal art can't save what a steaming pile of turd this manga is.
It's enjoyable for about 20 chapters. I really would recommend never, ever reading this. Just don't. It's got good reviews here but go to any Reddit thread about it or the anime release, and they will mention that you should avoid this at all costs. The main reaction to the announcement of an anime adaptation was "Really? Of all mangas they had to choose from, they chose this?".
I was looking for some fap material when I stumbled upon this. Then I got hooked and forgot my original "goal".
The story: is frustrating at times but it gave me some strong feelings that even real life people haven't. It could be because I haven't read many romance manga though. One thing I don't like is that sometimes the author get lazy and create events that are too convenient to solve the problems instead of a step-by-step progress.
The art is great except for the males characters being a bit too "shoujo" for a shounen manga.
The characters: Well. This is where readers divide. First discussion point
is the main male character. This guy sometimes acts really dumb, especially at the beginning, but the author is amazing at showing the progress in which he changes himself. Then there is the main focus of the whole manga: the two sisters. Two opposite personalities, living in the same house with the male protagonist. Try not to be too drastic with your favoritism for one girl and you'll have less frustration while reading.
The support characters are unique and have their own story, which is a nice bonus.
As a young male adult, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed reading this manga.
Some advice: Try to have an open mind while reading this. You will very likely join one "team" or the other, but don't quit just because things seem rough for yours.
First things first, I've never reacted this way to any other manga/anime. I got very invested, very fast. Writing this review after chapter 218 was released.
The story starts off interesting, but slightly drops in quality after a while. But then it picks itself right back up, and becomes even better than before! The story is based off an 'intriguing' premise, but it also has very deep scenes, delving into the world inside the characters' heads. The author also spends many many chapters on individual romances, which is the main part of this series. It is an ecchi, but the tone is a serious romance
drama, so the few parts with ecchi work well. The drama part sometimes feels exaggerated, with a few scenes feeling a bit 'too unrealistic,' but a large portion of this series portrays a very realistic romance that people can relate to (minus the incest).
The art is beautiful. No further comment.
I feel like this is where this manga shines the brightest. It spends a lot of time fully fledging out its characters, and gives them a lot of depth. They are also very relatable, which allows the reader to get invested in them. And over the many arcs that take place in the story, they get even more character development, creating very dynamic characters. The characters also have great chemistry together, and aren't great only when they're alone, allowing character interactions to be more enjoyable. They're all very relatable and realistic, each character could basically be a real person somewhere out there.
Absolutely love it. Its a very enjoyable read. Only thing is it also tends to send you on a rollercoaster of emotions. It took me a while to recover from that most recent one, and I'm not sure if I'm even fully recovered yet. Its an unexpected tearjerker; one I thought would just be another romance drama, but ended up much better.
In the end, I think this is a very well written romance drama. The story is very intriguing, and contains many arcs that pull the reader in. The art is amazing. The characters are very well developed and relatable. I enjoyed this series very much up to this point and am very excited to see where it goes.
So this is going to be a review of the manga so far (58 chapters), so my opinions/criticisms of this manga can easily change by the time this manga ends.
Story: Oh man, if you're a dude who loves a good romance with some great ecchi, this manga will most likely hook you in INSTANTLY. The first chapter really slaps the reader in the face with some things you wouldn't really expect from a typical school, romance, comedy manga. However, if you're not hooked by the first chapter, I think you should probably refrain from reading this manga cuz the first chapter pretty much sets
up the premise of this manga. I really don't wanna spoil anything, so for the story, I'd say just read the first chapter and decide from there. I give the story a 8 thus far because the story does indeed get really deep into the real world, but because of the harem vibes and what not, the story could turn some people off. Also, as a slight warning, there are SOME incest vibes in this manga, however, the characters are not blood related whatsoever.
Art: Holy balls. Go to that first chapter and tell me with a straight face that the art isn't EXTRAORDINARY. At least compared to 99% of romance, school mangas out there. The chapters don't stay in color throughout the manga like the first chapter, obviously, but nonetheless the art is amazing and consistent..there have been no occurrences where I had trouble noticing what's going on.
Characters: I can say that all the characters are likeable to an extent. They all have faults that can make you hate or love them. The MC can be really loveable at times, acting like a gentlemen and what not while other times he can act like Makoto from School days..seriously. Personally I love Hina-senpai, the MC's teacher, while many hate her because of reasons that I don't want to spoil...and I really dislike a character named Rui simply because I think she's super controlling, but others call her best girl. It really all comes down to preference with this most of these characters. I can't really say much without spoiling, I apologize.
Enjoyment: So far, I have really, REALLY enjoyed reading this manga to the point where I marathoned all the chapters in one sitting and couldn't even go to sleep last night because of it. However, people can have different opinions. I love this manga because I simply have a guilty pleasure of reading School romance love triangles with ecchi vibes and sweet romantic moments. Others might find this kind of thing weird. But I LOVE it. If you're familiar with Seo's works (like Suzuka, Kimi no iru machi and Fuuka) you'll probably come to enjoy this manga a lot!
Overall: It really all comes down to what you think after the first chapter cuz that sets the mood and story for this manga. If you don't like the first chapter, chances are you most likely will not like the rest of the manga. Right now, I'm REALLY enjoying this manga and I hope the story stays how it currently is, however, I have a slight feeling that shit might hit the fan soon which just might change my enjoyment level drastically lower if that happens LOL.
