I'm still enjoying Otomen, but I think it's starting to coast now. I hope the love triangle that seems to be showing itself in the last chapter doesn't come to much. I think that would be more tiresome than anything else. Asuka is now so far overdue for a serious talk with his father that it's getting really annoying.

I liked this one a lot especially with the development at the end. There was a lot going on with supporting characters but Ryo and Asuka are still really important.

Today's post is on Otomen volume 15 by Aya Kanno. It is the fifteenth in her Otomen series. It is 192 pages long and is publishes by Shojo Beat. As this is the fifteenth volume in this series, you need to have read the first fourteen volumes to understand the story. The cover is yellow with a group Asuka's friends and his father on it. The intended reader is someone who likes shojo manga, humor, and love stories. There is no foul language, no sex, and no violence in this manga. The story is told ...more

Hier haben wir sehr viel Charakterentwicklung seitens Tounomine, der Make-up Artist werden will. Weiterhin wächst der kleine Ariake wächst über sich hinaus.

So, I don’t really know what happened, given how before I was just enjoying the series, but now I’m kind of in love with it. It’s just… this volume was so good. It just was. And I loved it. And I really want the next one now.

The first half of the volume focuses on Tonomine, who I like, but am not a huge fan of. Still, the story was entertaining. I feel for Tonomine, I’m glad for how his story turned out. He’s being pressured by his dad to go into politics, while

Being groomed to follow in the family footsteps is rarely comfortable for the offspring involved. Couple that with a tendency towards girlish pursuits and you’ve got a real dilemma on your hands.

In this volume, we learn a little more about Hajime’s background and his first encounter with makeup. Dissatisfied with his big sister’s attempts to dress him up and paint his face, the usually quiet boy asserts himself by dabbling in the face paint and makes a much better effort than his astonished sist

Three and a half stars, actually. Tonomine's conflict resolved in a way that made sense, and that made me smile for all the women involved. It also had a nice twist with Ryo that made me grin. Most of all, I was glad to see how things worked out between Tonomine and his father. I was so afraid that part would be over the top as well, but when it comes to emotions Aya Kanno manages to keep things down to earth. It's nice.

The twist at the end of the volume made me groan, though. I don't want a lov

Just another fun, humorous, relaxing volume of Otomen! There are two main stories here, the first of which carries over from where the previous left off and comes to a nice resolution. The second story begins and ends within this tome, no cliffhangers here. I think it's great this volume was released in June, since that's when summer starts and the main theme for much of the book is very summery. It even has that far-off hint of melancholy, knowing that summer, and this series, will soon end. At ...more

AHHHH! The cuteness levels of this volume are out of this world. My two favorite characters are the features, the makeup artist who (view spoiler) and the delicate boy who realizes he doesn't have to be manly to be cool . Another reason I love this series is because I think it has great lessons about accepting that traditional gender roles are not the only ones that exist and people are diverse and complicated, yet it does so couched in adorable ridiculou ...more

Why am I reading this series again? Oh yeah, because I'm a completest and have come too far not to see this thing through to the end, I'm not out any money - these are library copies, and there's nothing offensive. Otomen is just kind of dull. The outrageous stereotypes have been run into the ground without any supporting character development to pull these characters back out again. Thank goodness we're on the home stretch.

Another interesting volume. That's a lot of volumes. At least I'm catching up on these series. And a lot more. But still, good volume.

Love the cover. Was a little disappointed that only one out of those four guys even appears in the actual book. Still, I enjoyed the first half (second half was good too).
