She gets felt up, seen naked, there are plenty of panty and booby shots, and of course, the boy (or anyone, for that matter) never loses her favor because she's "kind."
Of course, being an airhead, she's completely oblivious as to why the boy blushes so much when he touches her breasts. She just smiles and says "that tickles!"
After feeling her up so much, the boy starts to feel hot and heavy for her...so that must mean he's in love, right? Yep, let's go with that.
And so begins our tale of romance...or not.
This story is written for pubescent boys that want to live out their wet dreams. I have a habit of reading manga to the end once I have picked it up, but this is just too much for me. It wore out my patience and I just couldn't take it anymore.
King Arthur is weak. She was once able to go head to head with the great heroes of the prequel, and now she has trouble dealing with everyone, even the weaklings. I understand her summoning was off, but this is ridiculous!
The show has become a shoujo. The servants fall in love with their masters, the masters fall in love with their servants, there are love triangles and Gilgamesh is the jealous guy.
King Arthur is out of character (OOC). She acts like a stereotypical shoujo girl. She blushes, likes stuffed animals, goes on dates, and becomes jealous of other girls.
*sigh* Did I mention that the male lead is surrounded with girls? He has a harem in his household.
Seriously, how did an amazing, serious shounen anime become a frilly chic anime? And I'm a chick! Yet I still find it bad. Everyone is weak and OOC.
Seriously, this is almost as bad as watching Sasuke decide to turn his life around, give up on revenge, and make it his dream to become hokage.
Boy, was I wrong.
This manga is truly a diamond in the rough. It's one of those unique manga where the main female lead is actually someone you can RELATE to with REAL flaws. She's not uber-cute and she doesn't have guys fawning all over her.
The story pretty much follows Kiriko as she goes through her school-life trying to get out of her perfect elder sisters shadow and blossom into her own woman.
Her elder-sister is your typical air-headed and clumsy, dumb (but well-intentioned) blond that gets the guys. Kiriko, on the other hand, is someone you can relate to off the bat. She's just your average girl that experiences the same kind of hardships any other teenage girl would face; unrequited love, trying to fit in, dealing with insecurity and raging hormones, and trying to find their own place in the world. We follow her as she slowly learns to be her own woman and steps out of her sisters shadow.
The story is hilarious and yet touching as well. It's very realistic, and as such, it's categorized as "mature" so it's not really for the feint of heart. Still, it's truly a must-read.

I'm one to complete my manga's, since I've learned through the years that sometimes manga's get better as you read one, but this one only got worse and it actually became excruciatingly painful to complete it. Unfortunately, I had trusted the reviews I had seen here and decided to read it. I read it after completing Fushigi Yuugi, a fellow "girl gets sucked into another world" themed manga, so I'll admit, expectations were high. But for it to have been such an epic fail...oh my.
The female lead was unlikeable. She made obstacles for herself to not be with the guy she loved most, which was annoying since it was so obvious it was just so that the series could drag out longer. What I hated most of all was the main villain, the evil queen. Her character was the worst underdeveloped character with the most pathetic evil-schemes I have yet to encounter. You would've easily thought they took her out of a Disney classic film like "Snow White" and even then, it would be an insult to Snow White.
All in all, I must say that this manga is pathetic. Do not be fooled by these reviews! It would only be enjoyable for possibly an manga newb, and even they deserve better. I mean, jeez, even Inuyasha's "Naraku" had a semi-thought out past that led him to be "evil" (was sick-fell for kikyo-gave up his body to demons to be stronger to be able to BE with kikyo-was only a half demon-wanted to become a full demon to find his place in the world-did evil things to obtain the one thing that could MAKE him a full demon) read more
