Asuka Masamune is a guy who loves girly things--sewing, knitting, making cute stuffed animals and reading shojo comics. But in a world where boys are expected to act manly, Asuka must hide his beloved hobbies and play the part of a masculine jock instead. Can Asuka ever show his true self to anyone, much less to Ryo Miyakozuk

I still love it. All of the new teachers end up converted by the end of this one and The school is slightly more normal until Asuka's mom comes back to Japan. We also get to see more about the supporting characters who aren't in the main group of friends in this one like Asuka's home room teacher and Chef. It's such a cute story.

The substitute teachers that Kasuga hired are proving to be supremely twisted. The next to force his ideas on Ginyuri Academy is Mifune Naito. Ostensibly born in America, he has exaggerated notions of ancient Japanese living that puts the academy into serious danger.

But strangest and possibly most disturbing of all is the new nurse, the slinkingly seductive Suzaku Oji. Where O-Tan’s giddy girlishness had a cutesy charm that made her pick all the boys as her favorites (much like Juta), she refra

The anti-otomen campaign at Asuka's school continues, but I think I see a light on the horizon. By the end of the book, Asuka & co. have converted all of the teachers brought in to drive the campaign, and gotten Kasuga fired. But that just means that Asuka's mother is now in charge. I have to say, I really disliked the Valentines Day storyline. I thought Oji was actually pretty creepy, but I guess it's another example of how broken the school environment has become in single-mindedly pursuin ...more

This is a mass review from volumes 1-11 since I read them all in sequence. The more I read this series the more I love it. I especially love that it concentrates on the boys and their habits/hobbies rather than their relationships (or lack thereof) as traditional shoujo manga does. If you are the type that gets frustrated when the 'main' relationship progresses slowly then this will drive you nuts. Perhaps it is because I read them so fast that it doesn't face me, but 11 volumes and it hasn't re ...more

And suddenly this series feels like a shonen. Except they're fighting against evil teachers with feelings.


Yeah, I wasn't too impressed either.

It's made clear in this volume that the romance aspect of this series, though still important, isn't nearly as important as Asuka's journey in accepting himself and what he truly loves.

The story is still good. In fact, it gets better in this volume because the plot advances nicely with more information given about a mysterious poet at the school, the baker who allows the gang to use a private room in his shop for conversations they can't have at school, and Asuka's mother, whose paranoia is star

In this volume, they finally end the mini-boss arc with the Anti-Otomen teachers that were brouht in, but it's amping up Asuka's mom to be the major antitagonist and made her even more of a dislikable character, during the breather chapter, where Asuka just wants to get out of being under his mother's watch and bake. I was hoping that they would have to deal with Asuka's cousin, before they dealt with his mom. But this was still a pretty awesome volume.

finished in one sitting! last competition with a teacher! this probably is the best one because it just really shouts Asuka and it gives you a lesson to be yourself at the same to be honest to other people too! the last chapter though! new speculations!!! it's so cool and i'm looking forward to it! there was also the chapter for love chick which is kinda weird... but it reminded me of the first chapter.

Is this the volume where this series jumps the shark? The Valentine's Day contest was especially lame.

That cover. Another good volume in the series. Liking the story. And the art is of course still good.

This volume of Otomen was a lot of fun to read. The Valentines Day chapter was really cute and all the characters are developing in a fun way so far. I look forward to seeing what happens next.

Things are getting weird, lol. Not that they were ever normal, I suppose. This volume has the same cute nonsense as before with a little less structure.
