review 1: A story about a guy named Zen with no memory of the past 20 years who's a killing machine in a colonized society. There are anti-imperialism overtones despite the main character being aloof about it all. His excuse for helping the doctor aid the Amatans against the imperialistic ...

review 1: This is a cute story about a boy who loves girly things. And can do some mean martial arts.Asuka is adorable, even when he's full of angst because he loves cuteness. He makes amazing bentos, cleans, knits, sews, and loves to collect cute things in his room. However, all this cute...

review 1: This was just as cute as volume one and twice as hilarious. Asuka gains a follower, a fiance, and has christmas with Ryo. My favorite was the last chapter because it seemed to have an extra dose of outrageousness with the tiny, childlike girl Asuka is engaged to. She even drug...

review 1: *Spoilers*I find Otomen to be a heartwarming read. We're introduced to Hajime Tonomine, Asuka's kendo rival, who in fact happens to be more similar to him than what he appears! Tonomine and Asuka dress as samurai (who look kinda like power rangers) to entertain the kids at a beau...

review 1: I really enjoyed this book, but with so many of them with all different stotylines with the same moral? Bah, I just can't help feeling kind of bored. I liked the beach story best, as that was really fun and light hearted. Asuka and his friends were having a lot of fun and it was ...

review 1: A light and silly story that I did kind of enjoy. I found the manga writer friend annoying and just kind of got in the way of the love story of Ryo and Asuka. If he had just been a concerned friend trying to fix them up all the time then I think the story would have flowed a bit ...

review 1: Oh my God no.... I just can't. I'm done, I'll find a GOOD one to read lol! I'm not into a guy having to prove that he's both girly and manly at the same time. I don't mind a guy that cooks, sews, bakes, cleans or anything :) actually I'd like it because I suck at cooking lol! But...

review 1: Genderbending and queerness is never far away in manga, but to show a boy who enjoys things typically considered soft and female in a non-derogative way is rare. I really like this series, I bought the five first volumes over less than a week from my local manga dealer because I ...

review 1: Because of a chance encounter with the lead singer of House Dust, Asuka finds himself in the lamentable position of posing as a punk rock/goth singer. You have to read it to believe it.As always, the message is clear: posing as something other than who you are invariably leads to...

review 1: So I read this and it was pretty much as good as the first. It wasn't action but drama, fun and crazy people! I did really like it and finished it super quickly. I don't feel as if there is just enough stuff to talk about when it comes to this book to be honest, so this will be a...

review 1: So this is the third book of the series Otomen by Aya Kanno. I enjoyed reading it more than the other ones, mainly because of the characters in this story. There are spoilers in this review so please at least have read the first book before reading this or if you aren't planning ...

review 1: Another really great volume. I didn't care that the whole beach thing was cliché; Aya Kanno's drawing style and the whole way in which she did it was awesome! I honestly can't get enough of Otomen, I hope she doesn't end it any time soon... My question about Ryo and Asuka was act...

review 1: I think it's fascinating that the main focus of this series has been shifting away from the relationship between Asuka and Ryo toward the secret between Juta/Jewel and Asuka. Juta's terrified of what will happen if his friends discover he's the famous Jewel Sachihana. When he bec...

review 1: I really was not expecting that ending at all. I really hope it's not true! This one was a really good volume. I liked the little side story about Yoriko and her boyfriend Masato. (She was the ghost that was haunting the training camp) I also liked Juta's side story about his fai...

review 1: This book really should have slowed down. The pace was horrifically fast and there was no suspense at all. We basically got all the main questions answered and very few questions left. I'll be surprised if they somehow stretch this out even more, I doubt they'll be many more bo...

review 1: Oh goodness where to start...it's going to be so difficult to wait for the next (and final!) volume. I really enjoyed reading this one, even though the ending was quite dark and a cliffhanger, to boot! The art in Otomen remains as beautiful as ever, the humor makes me laugh out...

review 1: I feel like this manga has gone from "just because you like things that society has deemed 'girly' doesn't make you less of a man" to actual trans/gender-confusion issues, which I don't care for. And I feel like the unrealistic obsession with manliness that certain characters (an...

review 1: One major complaint about the end of this series, hence the spoiler cover (which is hopefully working--can't tell on mobile, so my apologies if not...):AMNESIA? REALLY?!At least it wasn't total amnesia--back to a young age? Fiiiiiine... Awkward enough that you're a little kid in ...
