Weirder than normal with Asuka going on a date with Yamato and Kitora trying to win over Juta's sister. There was no real development with Ryo and Asuka. Ryo wasn't really even in it much but I still enjoyed it.
Asuka’s life grows ever more complicated as he and Tonomine (a guy from another school who seems to have a lot of free time to go gallivanting over to Asuka’s) get involved in a magazine that promotes them as the “Beauty Samurai”.

Asuka’s so-called manly assertiveness doesn’t always stick with him when he’s away from kendo training. As he and Tonomine get manipulated by the women’s magazine’s conniving editor, they are sucked deeper into a world neither of them is fully equipped to handle. Asuka
I really do love this series, about a high school boy who tries to be manly for the sake of his mother but he actually really likes female-like things and he meets one girl who is manly acting, so they get along well and eventually start going out.
I think overall this book was pretty funny especially with the new character that shows up, the one in the band, he seems really sweet and not mean at all, especially with all that make up you would think that hes a bad guy but he actually wasn't, ha

Review will be added sometime in the near future. I promise.
Nothing super-fabulous happened in this volume, but it was entertaining nonetheless. It continues to deliver the light shojo fare I love so much, and it was cute and charming. The characters never cease to make me happy, and these fluffy storylines are a great break from real life. Some of the past volumes have had me dying with laughter, and while this one just made me smile, it was still really nice.

One of the cutest volumes I think I've read of Otomen! Nice pacing, good dramatic ending, and overall the volume stays true to everything previous and has a nice constant style. Can't beat Otomen! I loved the end section with the bands - that was incredibly neat, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

The end of the beauty samurai story line was strangely disjointed in places. I really had to work to figure out what happened on the film set. The other three plots that followed it were filler and not all that interesting. I hope it picks up again next book.

Volume 6 reinforced the themes of being true to yourself, and proud of who you are. It actually meshed quite nicely with this week's episode of "Glee" - there were some pretty theatrical outfits in this volume!
Juta's sister becomes more enmeshed into the story with Kitora trying to give her flowers. The result is rather sad and funny. The entire book has a rock/ visual key theme. It's certainly interesting.
Wasn't a fan of Kitora's backstory, surprisingly. Probably because he's just weird.

Enjoyed the rock band twins, even though it made me *facepalm* at the end.

Also, hints about Asuka's dad...

Around volume 5 this series suddenly improved massively. I'm glad I stuck with the series because by this point the series seems to have found its identity as an over-the-top comedy - which I love!
Oh, je ne m'attendais pas à ce que ce personnage apparaisse, mais bon c'est tant mieux. Cela va peut-être donner un autre sens (plus intéressant ?) à cette histoire. :)
Not the best volume to date. The beauty samurai story sort of fizzles out, and the rest of the stories are pretty forgettable.

:) I love this series. I wasn't as interested in the rocker storyline, though.

Shout out to the appearance of a visual kei band at the end, lol!
I'm glad the beauty samurai thing is over.
