at least, this isn't as completely silly as Vandread ^^'
while it might be really weird, it does fits the story. (actually, i bought this explanation about the disappearance of the men, except the total lack of boys... and it would be hardly believable that kids under like 12-14 would go with the rest, fishing some crazy things)

*wild imagination ON* these men might... ended on another island...? guess that would be the complete opposite atmosphere than Airan (more hell than heaven, kinda )

I think so. He was certainly feeling some regret in the manga at that point, and who can blame him! He’s suddenly realised Suzu would be a good catch but has backed himself into a bit of a corner due to his original stance of not wanting to get hitched.

Well, not like that can't be corrected

From what i understood of Suzu, it is not that she exactly would mind being with him, but that she doesn't want him to forced to "choose" her. Should he come to her from his own will, i am pretty certain she would accept. (Of course this will take the bloke ~20 eps to figure out, no doubt )

At least there shouldn't be any character younger than 11 years, or we should ask why is there 2 year pregnancy

That is what most either call good character development, or what i call dragging a series on for as long as possible !

Spoiler:


Besides that Suzu has placed their beds right next to each other like a married couple!! A big fat obvious foreshadowing of what's to come

Bingo.

Suzu is beyond adorable - her character just gets better and better as the story develops. And she definitely feels "it" for Ikuto - she just doesn't want him unless it's of his own will. Just like him she has an old-fashioned way about her, they're a good match...

Yeah, definitely. Even in just the first two episodes of the anime, the "chemistry" between them is very natural and obvious. Their relationship provides a sort of anchor to all the chaos and insanity (to the characters themselves, but also to us, the viewers), and that's definitely one of my favourite aspects of the show. It's crazy, insane, and manic, but at the end of the day they have each other to "go home" to, and that makes everything okay. Sort of reminds me of Inukami in that sense, actually (though Suzu's clearly different from Youko ).

Reminds you of inukami? lol, I would actually think that if youko was on the island she would

Spoiler for Youko:


Other than that I agree with everyone Suzu's lack of experience and genuine affection for Ikuto is really sweet, she is also mild and good mannered.

Inukami/Nagasarete crossover ?

*Imagines Keita on this island*
... we would have a hentai in this case


... At any rate - for the last day i have been toying (means learning ) around with gif making, and i kinda used Nagasarete for samples If any one wants any of these - go ahead.

Maybe they will manage to explain it on later episodes no? Oh btw, was that a giant eggplant Ayane's always hugging? Tonkatsu...well..it's been a while since I saw like that. First time was Hiyoko-kun (chick-kun) from TokiMemo ~ Only Love
It was actually explained at the beginning of the second episode. If you skipped ahead to the start of the episode, you might have missed it.

well... he actually watched it (see the comment "those chanting and stuffs"?) but commented that explanation was surreal in fact


geh... the more i hear suzu, more i feel she would need a ribbon as a weapon (Hocchan's performance in NA reminds me too much of Makie Sasaki from Negima ~~)

awesome!!! this is heaven if you can survive it or hell if you cant atm it should be hell seeing ikuto getting torn apart like some dumpling *kuma kuma!* :3

ep 1 gave me the goosepimples to say the least ~ an island inhabited only by females? at that moment my memory brought out the words "girls bravo" and already i knew what im in for
great first ep i must say...the character designs are really pretty and seeing ikuto loosing a gallon of blood just gives me a big smile...well thats the reaction any males would get being put in that situation (oh how i envy him XD) ~
getting his back washed by suzu was just the starter...with him landing in the lands of "puni puni" finishing it off...most interesting :3

ep 2 ~ "catch a groom tournament" okey ikuto is not a man at all...he should have picked to marry all of the women there rather than accepting the tournament XD (okey it might not be such a good idea )
dam this is funny stuff...even tho its predictable that ikuto is bound to be running for his life stuff liek this never gets old XD its also nice to see suzu helping him by taking out all the other girls...so i guess we have a winner here...

(note to self tonka is really kirby XD)
and first theres kuma kuma...now theres a panda chan O.o

wow suzu really have a heart of gold :3 great resolve (or lack of) for the situation ~ im really enjoying this series ~

Watched ep 2 this morning... naturally, he missed his chance to land the adorably cute and earnest Suzu (because he doesn't know her well enough).
(baka in a good way errrrr )

I will say that at least this series has the characters in a predicament where there really ARE no other guys so in that sense its one of the few harem anime to actually make sense.

Points for him not being a complete disaster (he handled himself fairly well in ep 2 even though Suzu was secretly helping) -- I'm already completely annoyed at the overamped nosebleed excess and hope it fades to something more like minor leakage unless it is *REALLY* warranted.
Relentlessflame's summation is spot-on (#268) though I think the male in Inukami is sufficiently different that the comparison doesn't entire work. Suzu and idiot have instant chemistry -- we'll see how much "jerry lewis" hilarity they have to go through with the other girls before they let us be.

I also like the fact that though each girl is an homage to other well-known anime girls, that inside joke isn't necessary to enjoy whats going on (though you may wonder why some of them are dressed so culturally differently).

Agreed; Chikage at least has her research as her motive, while Machi simply enjoys being evil; so cute .

That line could very easily be her epitaph (not that I want Ayane to die; her Bugs-Daffy relationship with Suzu is comedy gold )

The raw for episode 3 is out. Tokyotosho appears to have a torrent of it (albeit with only one seed for now) for those not versed in winny/share.



EDIT: Manga readers, prepare for a big shock. Someone's introduction has been fast-forwarded several chapters.

EDIT2: I didn't quite get what was said, but once again manga readers, prepare yourselves. It's becoming more and more apparent that for better or for worse (we don't know yet) the anime's going to be changing stuff around quite a bit.

After watching ep.2 I did not know that Ayane and Machi are sisters . When Ayane clings on to her last hope, her sister is soo evil. I think with Machi's cooperation, Ayane would not fail as much
