I like Asuka and Ryo a lot but I don’t think he could be a fictional boyfriend for me. It was definitely one of the best mangas I’ve read, plot-wise and the artwork. Asuka kicks butt and makes bento lunches with equal ease, but events in his past cause him to fear his “girly” side will be discovered and result in social ostracism. Top 5 Anime by Jopz “Yuuema”. I loved how casually supportive Ryo and their mutual friend Juta were of Asuka’s hobbies, and the way that Asuka handled Ryo’s disapproving father.

Otomen | Manga –

For example witchcraft works has similar scenes, but it soon goes into “a woman should listen to her man” mode and goes downhill. Akira is also the one who falls in love first and is very much loving and supportive of Takami despite her brash attitude and her obliviousness. December 31st – January 6th Included in December’s release thread. May magna, Jaylee rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked this manga, especially the role reversal scenes! Get Known if you don’t have an account.

Maanga really liked seeing a male character interested in stereotypically feminine janga, without the narrative painting him as weak for it. Manga series often seem refreshing for their openness when it comes to playing around with gender roles and this series is especially notable for that.

This manga is actually about peoples’ hobbies and interests and accepting people for who they are. Ryo Miyakozuka, on the other hand, is a girl who can’t sew or bake. There’s a lot of tell versus show and for a shojo manga it lacked emotional depth. One where they beat up bullies and also give the victims otoken makeovers or something.

She is the former assistant of mangaka Masashi Asaki of Psychometrer Eiji fame. Mind you, he’s absurdly talented at all of those, too.

Like ootmen girls, feminine boys have their own charm. This was such a great read! Bessatsu Hana to Yume Hakusensha. February 1, [18]. I mean other parents in fiction at least seem to believe that their kids will be unhappy unless they follow suit, but Kiyomi knows full well that her son will be miserable and is fine with that. It’s a typical kind of arrangement but otomfn different intricate events make it extremely interesting to read about.

Otomen, Vol. 18

Subscribe to the Mangz Newsletter. Written and drawn by Kanno Aya, the story revolves around Asuka Masamune, who loves things and hobbies that are related to girls.

Honestly, I think what happened is that Kanno figured out what she wanted to do with Kiyomi and her villain arc much too late in the series. Aug 04, Nidah SleepDreamWrite rated it liked it.

Aww, a happy ending that I have been waiting for! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Otomen, Vol. 1

Throughout the series Asuka is joined by other “otomen” and endeavours to court the girl of his romantic dreams who, like Asuka, breaks the stereotype of the ideal Japanese girl.

No matter how I look at it, if he was involved with a guy, he’d leave her just like his father did to his mother. The story comes to a nice happy ending to wrap things up even if it draws too much from devices that are typical of manga: I don’t believe I will continue on with this series.

Takami and Akira have been friends for the longest time and take the mangs piano classes.

Vol.1 Otomen – Manga – Manga news

This was the major letdown for me because I envisioned a really captivating love story between two androgynous characters with clashing personalities that found themselves drawn to one another. Viz 18 Volumes – Complete. Their relationship looks very weak to me, even if it works maanga a few years, it won’t work longer.
