Manga Review: Tokyo Yamanote Boys



Tokyo Yamanote Boys by Rejet Art by Nagoya Uzuki 2 volumes -complete

Chihiro is chosen as the year's princess in the love tournament for Tokyo’s no. 1 High School Student.  She must choose and confess among the 9 boys who came from different districts based on Tokyo's Yamanote train line. 

With the scanlations available so far, the manga seems a straight up dating game. But after reading the reviews of the otome. It's not just your ordinary love confession contest. It's actually darker. It's from the same artists of Vitamin X. See the second picture above. The first photo is their manga-fied versions. I also featured the TYB on last year's 12 days of Christmas Reverse Harem.

Manga Review: Fusuma Land 4.5





Fusuma Land 4.5 by Waki Yamato 1 volume -complete

Before there was Platform 9 ¾, there was Fusuma Land 4.5. Kachiko is a very strict, glasses-wearing and a short girl. One day she fell into Fusuma Land where you transform into someone or something you wish to be. She also meets a ragtag of neko and literary/legendary figures. 

Before you judge the manga by it's art, please take note that this is from 1984 and probably one of the pioneers of reverse harem as we know today. The story is original and all the elements are neatly planned out and paced well. 

I've also updated Intro to Reverse Harem and Site with the pioneers of reverse harem. As per Mangaupdates, the oldest reverse harem mangas that we have are "Soredemo Chikyuu wa Mawatteru" (1984), "Fusuma Land 4.5" (1984), "Akogare Boukensha" (1985), "Momoka Typhoon" (1987) and "Hanasakeru Seishounen" (1987). They should also add Hiatari Ryoukou! (1980).

Reverse Haremism

After watching BroCon I realized there seems to be awfully lots of monks in reverse harems. And they're all official members of the harem and not just some minor characters. I'm still procrastinating on posting about deities, landgods and priestesses. This is just in the spirit of good fun.


Kaname with his co-workers from Club Buddha in Brothers Conflict



Hoshikawa in From 5 to 9




Arikoto and Gyokuei in Ooku




Eisen and Abe no Yasuaki from Hakunaru and Musashibo Benkei from Harukanaru  3


And of course Chichiri of Fushigi Yugi! So who's your favorite monk?


UPDATE 4/18: Added From 5 to 9 live action

Anime Review: Brothers Conflict


Brothers Conflict - 12 episodes

Ema fathers remarries and finds herself with new stepbrothers...13 of them! Conflicts ensues as each of the brother confesses for Ema.

At first, I wasn't too keen with the character art and story. They look distorted especially Ema, Azusa and Tsubaki. But then again, it's I think it's because I already knew the story. If I get to read the book before the movie I will most likely not like the movie. And vice versa, if I already watched the book I will most likely not read the book. The same goes with mangas/novels and animes. But as the series progress, my love for  it has reawaken. Check out my thoughts on the novel's summaries here. The novel is now on it's second volume. Let's hope for a second season in the future. They still have Iori's conflict to cover. 

The ending song "14 to 1" deserves a separate discussion. The story is already pure fanservice to reverse harem fans. 13 brothers after 1 girl? But making them all sing and dance?? It's really too much for me. I'm way beyond nirvana now. Ugh! I want them all to be my stepbrothers!  

Please join the poll, you have to make a very difficult decision of choosing just one because I can't. My top 5 are the triplets, Iori and Subaru. And because Iori mentioned my nickname, I decided to resurrect my about me page.
