Ooyama Takeru, a young normal yet perverted minded guy, got accepted and now goes to a school that, unknown to him, was where combat and magic is used. On the first day, he meets again after three years: Amaya Haruko, his childhood friend, Kushiya Inaho, a girl who says she's his fiancée, and Himegami Kodama, a blonde who wants to kill him. Finding out that there are many girls there that just don't like him, he is told that everyone there uses a special magic ability while using an item or weapon called a Maken. Later, he finds that no Maken is acceptable for him and doesn't know what to do, since in this school the students get into duels that showcase their magic and combat power, to which he seemingly has none.

Included one-shot:
Volume 16: Gakuen Dragon Slayer (Highschool Dragon Slayer) [Story: Yamaguchi Mikoto]


Maken-Ki! has been published in Italian by Panini Comics since September 5, 2013.

Here we have a manga that, in my opinion, has and interesting synopsis: An ordinary guy joins and extraordinary school. Sound fun, right? Well yes, it is fun. But "fun" is not always the same as "good". Let me explain.

Story - Weak at best. It seems like its only there to give an excuse for the massive quantity of soft porn. The obvious focus of the manga is its ecchi content. Here's an example of what I'm talking about: you're reading a battle scene. Beautiful characters unleash fantastic powers, the tension is building, you're starting to get into the action, and then you look read more

This Manga is like a Gathering of popular Harem characters so u will find any kind
of typical Character you found in popular Harem mangas before. A Guy enrolls into a school without nowing more than that it was an all-girls-school before so he isnt prepared at all to find himself in a school for "Special Ability Users". He just wanted to have a nice time with his Childhood friend and, if possible, some other Girls and who ever thinks of RosaVam at this point isnt wrong at all. So to be short, if you like Harem mangas you will like this one.

what this manga does well , is to get the formula right.
Its not untypical of manga of this genre but it does it with the right mixture and balance enough to hold your attention to the very end. unfortunately not all can do so.
so if you like this type of manga , you will not be disappointed.

Typically, I think this is one of the most "Underrated Manga" on this site. Maken-ki does better in the manga than in the anime. So if you watch the anime only, read the manga it's a lot better.

The action is basically your everyday Shounen fighting anime, guy gets introduced, gets stronger, fights to protect what he loves, yada yada yada... It's also a harem with EXTREME amounts of Ecchi moments. But, that still doesn't stop me from reading it because, I for one, love the action scenes and the main character Takeru. Yes he is one of my favorites.

The story does pretty well. But I read more
