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.
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.
