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!

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

There’s only one way to describe this manga:

Warning! This manga is NOT suitable for people under 18.
This Manga Contains One or More of the Following:

Graphic Sexual Situations
Non-Consensual Sex (you might as well just say rape)

Well, they have an active sex life. I don’t know if to be appalled for the students who sat and touched the desks they got busy on or applaud them for getting it on in almost every room in the school.

It starts with Seri, who has been doing karate since she can remember. Now a high school student she wants nothing more than to have a boyfriend. Apparently guys read more

The manga started out very good in my opinion. After reading a couple of chapters I thought this would turn out to be a very good story. But the manga soon takes a turn for the worse: it's very repetitive (always more or less the same things seem to get in between the main characters and they.just.don't.learn.) and overly dramatic. One could argue that most shoujo manga are overly dramatic or not realistic, but Ren-ai Shijo Shugi really stands out. Sadly, that's the only aspect where the manga is outstanding. The characters are mediocre, don't really develop and don't have any significent character trades.
