Opinion: Graphics are perrrfect. Great mix of modern shoujo with the edge of shounen.
Okay. Let me start by saying this series is terrible. Even going off of one chapter I can tell you now that you would be wasting your time reading this. I nearly considered just not reviewing it but then I thought of all the poor souls who would be sucked in by the cool sounding name, the prestige of the group scanlating it, and the somewhat stupid synopsis.
It’s not that I hate harem. Okay maybe I hate harem. But there HAS to be a better way of introducing 9 males. I honestly haven’t got a clue how many there actually are. I mean Ouran High did a fantastic job of introducing everyone without me getting exhausted, COME ON. They aren’t even DOING ANYTHING. Not only do I not know any of the characters I haven’t got a clue what happened in the first chapter. Was there a plot? I don’t know.
Do I sound angry? I am because it was such a huge waste of time. The heroine is absolutely vanilla stereotypical female. There is nothing special about her. She doesn’t even look like a heroine. Which… I have no idea who the main character IS. I mean I thought it was the guy with the braid who narrates but by the end of the chapter I get this terrible terrible gut feeling that each chapter is narrated by a new guy. THATS AT LEAST 6 DIFFERENT CHAPTERS. 6 different chapters of some cliched trope going on about how unique they are compared to the other boys and how much they love the girl. WHAT!?
The moment I realized (way too late might I add) that this manga was based off a dating sim I flipped my computer. Just because you think your dating sim is cool doesn’t mean you can take the exact dating sim and make it a manga. I’m not even saying making it INTO a manga, I mean just make it a manga. Because whatever you’re doing just isn’t working and you need to stop.
Final Rating: 1/5
