Description:
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…

Warning: The lewd edits takes this manga from ecchi to adult due to the explicit nature of the edits.

It's very important to keep your characters clean.

I bet this manga would be finished already if the author didn't draw a bath scene every damn chapter.

Chapter 114 just came out in Monthly Action, so that should be coming here soon.

If you don't need to wait for the translation, you can get it online:

I used to love this series, so clever and fresh, it was fantastic. Feels like it died though, I mourn it.

It begins. Now Kazuya will combine them all to make some crazy things in a future fight.

Still waiting for the new chapter.
Hope it upload soon.

20.1 and 21.1 added. I keep finding things that have slipped through the cracks, either during the move to Mangadex or that just never got into an unofficially official release. These two omake are in the full-volume archive, but the archives of the chapters they were connected to are either in dead links or part of Facepalm's chapters.

Chapter 19 is fixed.
Don't forget to upload the missing 2 extras/omakes of vol. 4 that take place chapter 20 and 21.

Thank you.

Can someone fix chapter 19, it appears to be broken or malfunction.
Also, there are missing extra/omake chapters after chapter 20 and 21, can someone upload them if possible.

Thank you.
P.S: I think chapter 19 report button is broken, can't send the report.

Wrote a review on this, here it is:

This is a very good series in very many ways, but it contains some things some people may absolutely despise. If you don't have that negative swirl in your heart, this is a must-read for sure. EXCELLENT art, good characters, superb action, fanservice, funny, phenomenal.

The censorship-related laws in Japan are simultaneously strict and vague; R18 manga regularly test the limits of what they can get away with by creatively interpreting the restrictions, while some of the retail outlets publishers want to sell through will refuse to carry anything they might get complaints over. I do know of at least one US publisher/licensee that regularly puts out decensored and translated H-magazine chapters, tankoubon, and doujin; I'm not aware of any that do the same in JP, but I haven't exactly been performing a thorough survey.

Part of it is also what's expected and, therefore, allowed in magazines versus tankoubon; a seinen title like Monthly Action has a range of stories it carries, and will be on display in the general area of a store, while a title like Comic Anthurium would be in a curtained-off Adults Only area if it's carried at all. So, Monthly Action gets details airbrushed out, Comic Anthurium can use strips that "obscure" part of the action even if it's not actually blocking out everything that might be of interest.

Thanks for finding that chapter. I didn't remember the number.

but that's almost impossible in Japan at this time.


Actually, why? I do own some seriously lewd tankobons and the publisher, pardon the pun, decensored the fuck out of them.

That would be ch. 55, "Another Dream Encounter". Though the PTSD was more from the first dream episode, ch. 47, "Kirio in Top Form".

A lot happens to Kazuya in his dreams…

And the Lewd Edits are pretty much here and at tsugumo.moe, edited together from screen captures during Hamada's live drawing streams. He draws the scene pretty much fully uncensored, then comes in with digital whiteout for the published version. He's said at times that he'd like to find a way to put the story out in an uncensored edition, but that's almost impossible in Japan at this time.

Nothing beats that chapter in which Kazuya , and afterwards experienced PTSD from the whole thing.

This manga is awesome! At first I thought it was going to be another subpar ecchi manga, but fuck was I wrong. The art and story are both great, and there's definitely no lack of fan service, though I feel the manga could stand on its on even without that.
