Official Series Website (might be minor LN spoilers)

As much as I want to make a LN thread instead, I think manga one will probably get more attention.

I waited forever for someone to pick it up and finally two groups began scanning it . Anyone reading this? Yaya's one of my most favoritest character (hell one of my irc nick is this one haha). Something about a super powered, mostly invincible girl just gets me all excited (not to mention the support cast is pretty darn sweet too; at least enough that there's a character type for everyone and I just happen to like them all). The pacing for the manga is actually pretty decent (11 chapters and still haven't got through volume 1 of the LN), and Takagi's doing a good job adopting Ruroo's original chara design (honestly I don't think it's that hard considering Nanasuke's doing a pretty good job with Shuraba as well).

Anyone that like a somewhat airhead-ish, half yandere/tsundere hybrid (jealous Yaya is the best!!) with a decent plot (might turn dark later) should check this out. Raishin's pretty badass too (but one of the types that take massive amount of hits before he start owning, and a frequent hospital patient as a result).

Pretty cool and interesting series, kinda reminds me of Deus Ex Machina.

lol would love to see a Machina x Yaya pairing

Atm MC is not bad but not too big a surprise that Yaya is the big draw in, she's grrrreat~!

Looking forward to more of this!

Lol, I think Hiro Shimono is bonded to Hitomi Harada (much like in Baka test) if we go by the drama cd seiyuus as well. xD

Up to chapter 5 has now been done and looked over volume 2 as well. Looks interesting with a decent male lead so far. Let's not forget the saucy Yaya too. Her jealous reactions right along with trying to get Raishin into the sack are hilarious...

Hahaha I thought the same thing at the end "what?"

What a way to ask someone out on a date

Yaya is just too adroble with her jealous side, when Char showed up, she was all hugging Raishin arm, too cute.

Story is indeed moving slowly but not too slowly yet is still interesting.
I hope we find out who the woman at the start is soon, pretty obvious she had my attention

So quick question, do you guys think Yaya is also a forbidden doll? We've seen that her power seems to be on a different level from most of the others except for Sigmund and the one guy's doll group.

I'm sure Yaya is forbidden doll as well.... she is stronger than Sigmund... xD
or maybe more than that... maybe something like cursed doll

The anime I didn`t know about.
I see it on my watch list.

Back to the manga, I really love it.
The style is really impressing me.
Raishin is such an nice change from the normal main characters.

Poor Raishin... Having to sleep with his nymphomaniac of a doll.
