Kazuya Kagami never goes anywhere without the precious “Sakura Obi” his mother gave him. One day a beautiful, kimono-clad girl named Kiriha appeared before him. Kiriha naturally began to live with Kazuya in his room. Then there’s Chisato, Kazuya’s childhood friend with glasses and a ponytail, who meddles in his affairs. Soon there’s also an overprotective older sister who seems to want to take baths with him. Jumble in a huge-chested priestess, a good-looking sorceress named Kokuyoura, beautiful women, and hot girls, and Kazuya’s happy, embarrassing, confusing life begins…

    Holy fuck this was a bit too much. Author went off the deep end with this arc that's for sure. You can kind off ignore it begrudgingly till 124-125 where Kiriha gets straight up with Kazuya getting right after. There is fan service and then there is obscenity, this arc pushed this manga into the latter category. Don't get me wrong, not trying to be a puritan here those two situations were just final nails.

    The whole thing was like an NTR doujin with cheap drama I'd expect from a Korean manga, pushing the main "couple" into a situation where they are powerless (for no good reason at all) just so you can pull at the heartstrings of the readers. (Which also happened to a lesser extent in the previous tournament arc.)

    Not to mention that MC had a reasonable relationship built with the main cast but the author felt the need to dilute the whole group with 5+ new harem member for no real reason. The whole thing got so far off track I can't believe it will return to the task at hand in a reasonable amount of time. For me what connection has been built over 100+ chapters was quickly "ruined". Ruined might be a strong word here.

    I don't understand how so many changed their tune over the course of the last arc (based on comments).
    This is honestly so damn great, the anime is nothing compared to the manga.
    I just wish someone would license this and publish physical copies already.
    Having finally caught up, I feel qualified to offer a general review/opinion of it.

    Simply put, I love it. 9/10 easily. The art is great, the characters interesting and funny, the battle sequences intense, and the ecchi scenes sexy.

    Be warned that there is a ridiculous amount of borderline-hentai ecchi scenes. It's probably the most ecchi-filled non-hentai series I've ever read. Most of the time it's just for fanservice, but it eventually gets woven into the plot via the traditional "sex magic" trope.

    Nudity aside, it is a very strong shonen fighting manga. There's a lot of interesting foreshadowing early on with Kazuya's family relationships, and it eventually gets fleshed out really nicely. Some of the fighting scenes and special fighting moves rank right up there with the traditional shonen greats. The artist is really skilled, and he comes up with really interesting combat moves and stuff.

    It's definitely not for everyone, but if you like ecchi and quality fighting, this is the series for you.
    This was never good.
    But it's become toxic shite.
    why is this on featured I wonder
    @will_zhao 25th of may. it's a monthly manga, so you better get used to the wait.
    when is the next chapter coming out i am so tired of waiting.
    despite all the sexual stuff I really do love this series and how it used to tsukomogami and the character designs are superb
    came for the story
    stayed for the "action"
    waiting for story to get back on track

    Thank you for the more detailed description too, I'll keep reading for a bit in that case.
    @yldDavid in the pseudo-isekai arc, starting around ch. 115, so there's plenty of time to decide how invested in the characters you are. The end of the arc, 110-113 is a good point to stop and take stock.

    The rough part for most people happens in vol. 14, chapters 66-71, but there's a lot of story after that.

    A rule of thumb: Any time there's lots of bubbles involved, good time to take a break at the end of that chapter.
    Naked girl being whipped by an evil slave mistress.
    Tentacles rubbing places.
    No penetration happens, but other sexual things do.
    It's really fun so far (~9 chapters in) but could someone spoil me on what to expect from the sexual violence tag? Not sure if I'm in a good enough place mentally to handle most things so would be nice to know.
    Someone translated the hentai oneshot prototype.
    i'm just glad that they didn't postpone the next chapter due to corona. thx for your hard work btw
    @Neji_Hyuga_II, sorry mate but it's illegal to think that.

    Just joking.
    retarded manga retarded character
    This really is the most interesting harem series I've ever read. To Love Ru and its sequel has a special place in my heart as the manga series that took my ecchi manga virginity but I'm a bit sad I found this masterpiece just now. Despite the rather awful recent arc, I still can confidently say that this series is a 10/10 in my book. Unpopular opinion: the isekai arc was good.
    How boy.... Seinen paired with Sexual Violence and Smut... How is this a romcom? wtf ???
    Just another "Japanese" "mc"... What was I even expecting...
