Karate girl Seri tries to kick away her past in order to catch a new guy at a singles party, but Tamaki, a childhood flame from her old karate dojo, shows up to show off and makes her heart pound. Their reintroduction leads to a karate challenge, and if Seri loses, she must become Tamaki's "toy"...!? It's a game of love with more rivals and obstacles (and sex!—LOTS of SEX!) than either Seri or Tamaki could have foreseen!

As a guy, I rarely read shoujo mangas. The only time I read them is when it has become really popular to the point that I would have either read/heard about it, or stumble upon it. But nevertheless, due to extreme boredom, I started on this manga. At first, I thought it would be an exciting, light-hearted story of childhood friends unexpectedly meeting up for a gokon with a "slice-of-life" touch. However, I expected way too much.

I'll begin with the negative aspects of the story. Firstly, there is a lack of character development. It never explained how the two fell in love, why there's read more

Minami Kanan delivers what she does best! Smut which takes your breath away with the mere beauty of the characters and settings involved! While the artwork isn't as magnificent as that of Kyousou Heaven, in fact Seri looks a bit unbecoming a lot of the time, the storyline is longer, though not complex or linear, more repetetive and predictable (and honestly, annoyingly maudlin) at points.

So Seri is excited about entering high school and wishes to do so with a boytoy at her side. Enter childhood karate partner and pain in the ass Tamaki with his raging hormones and undeniable sex appeal! How is Seri to read more

I struggled to read it all the way to the end. The plot is basically cyclical- someone wants to break them up, assaults the girl, they overcome it, and then it all repeats.
If you like smut, there's plenty of it, and if you like the typical shojo couple then that's there too. But beyond that... the suspension of disbelief for the sake of smut is a little too much. Can you buy that a girl who it supposedly great at karate would only wait to be saved by her boyfriend each time she's sexually assaulted? Can you believe that a girl would be assaulted read more

I only started reading this manga last night .. So far I have reached up to Volume 06 .. can't seem to find more chapters anywhere else at the moment.

This manga falls into the categories: school life, romance, shoujo, ecchi amd drama ;)

There are two protagonists, one female; Nagakura Seri and male; Hayasaki Tamaki .. they are both childhood friends and attended Tamaki's family owned dojo/karate club since they were young and were reunited several years later. Seri is clumsy, weak at times but like most mangas, she spits fire when she snaps =) Tamaki is the very protective type, extremely seductive and need I read more
