Ashita no Yoichi

It's about a boy swordsman, Karasuma Yoichi, who trained for 17 years in the mountains with his father and his descent from the mountains when he can learn no more from his father. He is told to go to a dojo in the city that his relatives own to continue his training there. Of course training in the mountains since birth doesn't prepare him for the surprises of urban life. And what's more is that his relatives are 4 sisters with Ikaruma Ibuki (the oldest) as the lead female.


It's another harem series and the comedy derives mostly from Yoichi's lack of experience with urban life and women. Gives off a few Love Hina vibes, but differs from other harem series because Yoichi is not a wimp and loves to fight.

This is a brilliant little manga I enjoy reading(probably down to my inner ecchi for that reason)

btw Ibuki is the oldest

p.s Kagome = uber kawaii!!!

Ye a neat little piece of goodness it is. Nothing too special but not shabby either. It's just what you'd expect (in a positive way) from this kind of manga. Especially the SD drawings appealed to me making up a big part of the comedy.

What exactly do you mean? If it's about girls, well almost every male lead in shounen manga is as dense as a rock.

Ah yes, the mistaken confession. Just another misunderstanding that needs to be cleared up. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear the first time but I was talking about Angela trying to separate herself from Yoichi as she thought that she became weaker from falling for him. Another misunderstanding cleared up.

Oh that matter... don't think it's too serious. My guess is one chapter will focus on Angela falling for Yoichi again by some moral play like "A person will get the strongest when he/she fights for someone he/she likes" - case closed

i admire minamoto yuu for making the protagonist not being a weak guy and such in a shounen harem manga but really now.. im having another deja vu of those 60+ chapters before yoichi even has feelings for ibuki. it's pretty much set in stone ibuki likes yoichi. sorry but this just gives me a love hina type feeling on how long it'll take for them to get together.

yoichi reminds me of sosuke sagara from fmp except remove the military training and make him an expert at swordsmanship who has lived in the mountains all his life instead. same can be said for ibuki being like chidori. i will probably skip this manga for a while and check back later on the romance department.

and i'm sure there will be more of yoichi's GAR moments in the chapters to come. latest scanlated chapter (14) shows washizu's character is developing into a better person.

And With the anime coming in I decided to look up the manga thread for this and was surprised that it is so damn small

Even if there aren't many chapters out

Anyway I found the manga to be quite enjoyable. Here we have a perverted samurai raised in the mountains as Tarzan coming down to the city and beginning a new life with so many sexy girls (damn was I surprised to see that even the loli has been lying to me). I still do wonder how Yoichi can be so attracted to the opposite sex even being up in the mountains all his life, must be those raging hormones of youth doing their work again ^^'

Still as a light hearted comedy romance, this definitely works out with the right amount of ecchi to boot. Shame that the releases are taking so damn long though.

As for the ending...if it ever ends...I would say that Yoichi is destined to end with Ibuki though his harem is well extensive already. There is no denying the violence of that girl is so strong than in the end she will knock everyone out to claim Yoichi.

As for me, I love Angie too much to care for Ibuki

LOL but Yoichi is not perverted orignally just alot of misunderstanding and like all harem leads always ends up in some way or another groping a random female and then getting his ass kicked by lead girl, only this heram lead can fight back.

Misunderstandings is one thing...

But on more than a few occasions Yoichi have been mentally undressing the girls...plus a lot of nosebleed

I always love those scenes where he gains new bumps on his head for nosebleeding by the "violent one"

"Why~~ ;______;"

And I am still thinking where the learnt it all from ^^'
