This isn’t Shana. Notice she doesn’t have a melon-pan.
Some mangas are missleading. For example, Elfen Lied manga looks dreadful at the first sight but his subpar artwork is offuscated by the storyline and appeal of the characters. Others, like 666 Satan, looks like a decent shounen but it reveals itself at a lame clone of Naruto with jumbled with a broken coherency.
So, what to say of a manga that looks like Hentai but infact it isn’t Hentai? We have a guy called Amakawa Yuuto who lives alone and has a nasty cat allergy, that when he reaches his 16th birthday, earns an ecchii samurai cat girl spirit bodyguard to protect him that speaks in ancient Japanese dialect and want to hump him madly? And let’s not forget that the mangaka’s previous works were all Hentai…
Warning: Extreme Ecchii pics after the jump.
Ecchii Samurai Cat Girl Spirit Bodyguard…and there is still room for more fetishes.
A short summary of the plot: Seven years ago, Amakawa Yuuto’s parents died leaving him living alone without a single relative. Ever since then, his childhood friend, Kuzaki Rinko, has waken him up, cooked for him and generally taken care of him. The only thing he has from any relative is a mysterious charm, a red ball, given to him by his grandparents as a good luck charm (an omamori).
On the day of his 16th birthday, this charm mysteriously disappears, and into Yuuto’s life walks Himari. A cat spirit-samurai girl and demon hunter who swears to protect Yuuto. There is only one small problem. Yuuto has a severe allergic reaction to cats!
The plot then revolves around Yuuto, Himari ( the cat girl) and a whole cast of harem girls including a childhood friend, a mizuchi (water spirit), a english tea service spirit (don’t ask) and a whole bunch of demons trying to kill Yuuto, since he is the last descendant of one of the 12 demon hunting families.
Danger: This manga can make you nosebleed to death
One of the strong points of the manga is the balance between story, fanservice and comedy relief. The typical shonen plot is good enough to generate appealing story elements, the humor isn’t exagerated and the fanservice doesn’t flood the pages. But be careful, as I said before, the mangaka’s experience comes from drawing Hentai and it reflects on the fanservice and poses the girls assume.
She is always glad to help her master.
The art itself is solid and consistent, but that is expected nowadays; the action scenes are fluid and attractive; in general, has the normal qualities any manga should have.
A Cat is Fine Too
I won’t lie, one of the reasons I read this is because the ecchii scenes, but I don’t judge the manga just with that factor alone. It’s all the other good points combined with this that makes it enjoyable to read. The worse part is this being serialized in Dragon Age, a monthly magazine, which can deter some readers. But I’ll keep reading, since I like the sarcastical attitude of Mizuchi and her loli look ( even when she has that drowned body look).
