5.0 out of 5 stars Fair Warning; March 26 2014

Be aware that Otomen is a serious commitment. You will cry. You will laugh. It is the best story of all time. It is not just a shōjo manga.
4.0 out of 5 stars Approaching the end April 20 2014

I have loved this manga since inception. It is a good crossover for boys, despite being shojo style, because it has some really hilarious moments. The main character, Asuka, is pretty darn perfect at everything. He's the perfect human in some sense. He masters all the manly arts, like kendo, as well as the womanly arts, like knitting. He enjoys them all, but is deeply ashamed of his anima (feminine side). This manga is really out of the box, and on target. As a (straight) teen, I had similar worries.
Normally I would give 5 stars, but this volume feels like the prelude to a wrap-up. The author is tying up loose ends, which is good at the end of a story. But there isn't much drama. For example, Asuka's friend Tomomine finally faces down his own father about what he wants to do for a living after high school. Unfortunately, this confrontation is rather formulaic and un-moving.
Still a great manga and I have high hopes for the next (probably final) volume. Important for those who follow the series, but not the best volume in the batch.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good Sept. 13 2014
By Jude - Published on
Format: Paperback

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

This was a sad volume. I just feel so bad for Asuka. For Ryo, too. They’re both obviously struggling, neither of them sure what to do, thinking that they can’t do anything. The poor, sad things!

And it’s all because of Asuka’s stupid mother. I rather hate her. She’s a selfish, horrible person. I’m not sure if, in the next volume, everything is going to wrap up neatly just by them talking, but I wouldn’t be surprised. Still, his mother is horrible, and I do not like her at all.

I love Asuka and Ryo, though, and really look forward to seeing how it all wraps up in the next book. It’s the final volume, so it’s sure to be good, and I’m really excited to see how it all goes. I want to see their happy ending. They deserve it.
2.0 out of 5 stars Story is great, but book arrived in imperfect condition June 11 2014

I've bought several volumes of this series from Amazon and each time they have arrived in perfect condition. But not this time! The spine is damaged (slightly torn at the top, dented at the bottom) and the edges of the cover are slightly bent. I am disappointed that Amazon would sell an imperfect product that was labeled as brand new on the listing, and I will now think twice before buying softcover books on Amazon.
5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't want it to end May 8 2014

I can't believe I just have one more before the series ends! I have loved this series since it first came out.
