Looks funny.

But Holy Knight looks better compared to this. (HK is also made by the same author of Gokujyo.)

Theres also ecchi manga written by women which are about teachers having sex with their students (Kodomo no Jikan) and 10 years olds drinking semen (Lotte no Omocha), so I won't say they're all innocent.

Kanokon (one of EH's examples) is way more sexualized than either of these.


This.

Plus, Lotte no Omocha is so NOT about Lotte drinking semen. Misleading synopsis <_<

Incidentally, hentai manga written by female authors are surprisingly more interesting to read. Smut is also often more fun to read than the typical hentai.

Hm, this doesn't appear to be my cup of tea.

I get the point you're intending to make, and it's not wrong (women can write smut too!), but these two examples are bad - beneath the outer "synopsis" layers, they're sweet, emotionally poignant stories. Saying they're "about" student teacher sex or underage blowjobs might make your point sound stronger but it also isn't actually accurate, as you well know. If anything I'd use them to strengthen EH's point about "ecchi" stories written by women having a different quality to them. Whether that's true or not.

Kanokon (one of EH's examples) is way more sexualized than either of these.

I don't know about this. I might watch a couple episodes to see if it is good.

Wow, the protagonist has the same name as the real life singer.
I'll leave my impressions when more info comes out I guess.

Well, you have to know female authors draw hentai as well. Not that hentai is bad, but someone pointed out that the illustration looks like hentai, which I admitted, was very recognizable (more so if you have actually read her hentai manga).

Lol at ecchi bashing as well. Stupid ecchi is stupid, clever ones are clever. However, people are getting a bit annoyed at the overexposure of sex and nudity, as well as the usual cliches. Again, not that it's a bad thing.... some people just had enough of that and need some new selling points. But nothing beats the good old "sex sells" <_< That's just how things work...


Heck, there are ecchi manga (or light novel) series written by women like Sekirei, Kanokon (light novel), Ichigo 100%, Sora No Otoshimono, and of course the famous Chobits and DearS. I have to admit, I'm finding ecchi series written by females to be more entertaining and funnier than by males (don't get me wrong) and I don't know why. I guess it's because they tend to have some innocence (coming from a guy who's read Chobits, DearS, and Sekirei). Am I the only one who thinks this way?

More ecchi. How lovely.

It's fun reading 'eechi bashing comments', that absolutely make no sense at all. Ewwwww dirty cynical kiddies. I mean, this series is actually good. They judge everything mindlessly (including JAPANESE ANIME INDUSTRY IS FALLING) just to make themawlves look stupid.

Another anime added to my watchlist. Would like a PV in the near future.

Sep 27, 2011 1:45 PM by Elite60

Doesn't seem like my type of anime. But for the people who like it, if it floats your boat...

Sep 27, 2011 1:36 PM by KuroNeko1997

Doesn't look good at all.

Sep 27, 2011 12:38 PM by RedFlameHaze

I don't expect much, just from looking at it.

But if it Is somewhat like Seitokai Yakuindomo...I may enjoy this more than I shall ever admit.
