I will say this about Otomen. The series is hilarious. Most of the humor in this volume, and a lot of weirdness, concerns Asuka's fiancee, Iruka Sakiyama. She is like the Messiah of Cuteness and Asuka finds himself hard pressed to reject her interest. She actually lives in a life sized magic castle dollhouse in her vast room inside her family's mansion. And she sees Asuka as her Prince Charming.
Kanno uses Otomen to parody shojo manga, actually gently poke fun at its conventions would be a more accurate description. Until you got to the Iruka section, Otomen has been pretty realistic without using many over the top elements. Kanno's main device of comedy has been the irony of Asuka's character and she has done very well with it. She is still using it, but she's coming up with more interesting situations to exploit it. I really like Otomen. It has been the biggest Shojo Beat surprise I've gotten this year.
Also for some reason I can't seem to remember Asuka's name. I just had to go back and check. I keep thinking it's Asoka or Anuschka or something. Perhaps it isn't mentioned enough in the book. I've read all three books three or four times since I got them and it just doesn't stick in my head.
However, this is a really funny series if you're focusing on the Juta-Asuka stuff and I do recommend it for that.
This manga is for people who don't subscribe to the "Me Tarzan, You Jane" approach to being male. Whether you're male or female, this comic will keep you laughing, smiling and wondering.... "what is up with people?!" :]
