4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious as usual Nov. 4 2009

I love this series and by this point I don't much care about the relationship between Asuka & Ryo. It's much funnier to read Asuka's interaction with other guys, especially since all his guy friends have some weird and Otomen-like quirk about them. We don't get to hear much about Love Chick in this volume, and it somewhat worries me that Juta isn't pushing them as much as he used to. It seems to be turning into more of a generic friends & low-key romance story. But there is a new male character who has a girly-level interest in flowers, and Asuka's kendo nemesis Tonomine reappears with his makeup box for some very funny competitions at the beach. Yamato, the girly-looking, short boy who idolizes Asuka, requests some help from Asuka, Juta and Ryo, which brings them to the beach.

Little things are drawn in the panels that really make me laugh. You may remember that Yamato has this fantasy-vision of his manly self with "narrow eyes" as he calls it, which are drawn sort of extremely. There is a point in the story where Asuka is doing something; Yamato can't see him, but is envisioning it - and he pictures Asuka with those extreme "manly" eyes. It just cracked me up. Lots of little things like that.

This issue seems like it's starting to ape Ouran High School Host Club. Ryo's just as clueless as Haruhi (although Ryo's character is less developed, so there is still nothing interesting about her), and now she's surrounded by a bunch of guys: Asuka, Juta (who is like the twins), Tonomine (like Kyoya), Yamato (like Hunny), and the new guy with the flowers who is like Mori. But I love Ouran so this is not that big a problem for me. I just wish there was more Asuka-Juta interaction. Maybe next time.

A cute story about strait boys with girly hobbies. It shows a wide variety of family life styles and how if you raise your child with fear and intolerence, they can shut down and hate how they are. But with a little time and good friends, they can truly bloom.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's more like a high 4 Nov. 3 2009
By F. Caldwell - Published on
Format: Paperback
Okay, I give Otomen four stars automatically just because there's something about it that keeps me hooked. The art is consistently good. The characters are interesting and the situations are always funny. But book four of the series just didn't have enough extra "oomph" for me to bump it up to five stars. I guess by book four I was hoping there would be a little more character development. I'm fine with situational things but I guess I kind of missed the point of whatever Otomen 4 is supposed to be about. Whether that point is Asuka himself, his relationship with Ryo, or the whole cast of characters. Even still, I love Otomen and I'm already looking forward to book five coming out next year.
As the back of the book states, Ryo's birthday has come around and Asuka is all aflutter thinking of romantic options and birthday presents. Then he's all aflutter for another reason when he finds out that Ryo has plans with another man on her birthday. Oh dear. The first chapter also reintroduces Ryo's super hardcore manly man father. His interactions with Asuka were hilarious. Chapter one is probably my favorite out of the book.
The next chapter introduces another character, a tall, mysterious type, complete with hair in the eyes, named Kurokawa. Asuka finds a secret flower garden hidden on the school grounds. He suspects that Kurokawa might have something to do with and tries to befriend him. Of course, Kurokawa has an odd way of looking at Ryo that has Asuka feeling more than a little jealous too.
The last two chapters are an extended storyline. It's summer vacation and Asuka is dreaming of all the romantic couple things he and Ryo can do when they go to the beach. Unfortunately before he can invite Ryo to the beach Asuka gets an invitation from someone else. Yamato. Yes, it's Yamato and he's just as clueless as ever about Asuka's otomen side. Yamato begs Asuka and friends to come to the beach with him and help save his uncle's failing beach bar. When they get there they find out why the beach bar is failing. It's a ratty little shack with nothing buy yakisoba on the menu. Oh dear. Just after their arrival, Yamato's uncle is injured leaving Asuka and friends to run the place all by themselves. And because things weren't crazy enough for them already, Hajime Tonomine (Asuka's kendo rival and secret makeup/hair master) shows up at the beach. You knew he'd be there. He was on the cover. And naturally hijinks will ensue.
Otomen 4 is still a pretty good book, even if it doesn't quite earn that fifth star. There were a lot of great and funny moments, especially in the first chapter. A little bit more (of what I don't know) and it would have been perfect.
