    I really didn't like Mogemi at first. I just find her to be a ... well I guess "annoying" "jerk", etc... . Quite rude I'll say. She'd be better if she was a bit less hateful towards Yamamoto more often. Though she seems to possibly have a reason for doing so (though I doubt it'd be a good reason.) Though I don't hate her that much anymore. I also like how Yamamoto actually fights back against females when needed (maybe not phsyically of course...) instead of simply succumbing to their every will like the rest of the males(not just in this manga as I find that there are a lot of spineless males in other mangas of the same genre)...

    Yup i agree, i like with the way Danjou Yamato is a person with some guts, a leader as opposed to some wimps like other main characters in other mangas.

    But i do like Mogami, she is one of my favorite characters. I like how she isn't so easy to "figure out" like so many other female characters usually are

    Yeah, my favorite thing about the manga so far is how Yamato is totally unafraid to speak his mind and put the bitches in their place. Well, that and Mogami's cleavage.

    Can't say I care for Mogami's incredibly sped up PMS cycle (sweet for a while, then a total bitch at random), though. She better have a damn good reason, although I'm pretty sure I won't find it to be good enough.

    Aren't we talking about this in the reading group?

    Well,the manga is okay for up to Volume 3. It has some big ass chapters too. Well, I sort of like Yamato with his 'I don't care what you say I am going to say it' attitude. I kinda like Mogami but sometimes I think she is just an ass. Some of the jokes are kinda funny, but most of the time they aren't. It seems this manga has an FMP relevance.

    This is the group discussion thread.

    I have read 2 volumes will read the third tonight. It's pretty good so far, but I don't like Yamato or Mogami. They both seem like idiots to me.

    Hmm, Banjo's relationship with his sister reminds me of a reverse situation of the Sotomura relationship...It seems to me like she has a crush on banjo.... weird.....But I also tend to think the "sister" complex happens quite a bit in any brother/sister combo...

    Was it just me or did anyone else feel like punching out some of those girls at Banjo's new Highschool? After reading just 2 chapters I had to go running to cool off the pent up aggression......Arrrr!

    The relationship between Maki & Danjo reminds me alot of the relationship between Futaba & Takasaki from Green Green. A very nice guy that has good relationship with most of the girls except one certain that is strongwilled, moody and just full of tardness that will in the end, end up with the nice guy. I really wonder what happened between
    Spoiler: vol 5? +
    Mitsuki & Maki & Danjo


    This is an OK serie, definatly readable, not a favorit and not a shitty manga. I wanted to a bit more boxing in the story, its like 2-3 boxing scenes in 7 volumes or something.

    Well, so far I've only read four volumes (in my defense, I'm reading other things at the same time). I gotta say, after reading he was a boxer, I was kinda hoping that this manga would have focuses relating to the characters' lives outside of romance. It would still principally be a romance manga, but straying for the "which do I like? Do either of them like me? Uh oh, a misunderstanding! That's -1 relation point!" plot at least once in a while would definitely add interest and originality in my book. I guess romance manga just aren't my style. I mean, it can be interesting, but I don't think there's enough meat on the bone to make a manga completely focused on it. Seems like it would be better as something put on the side of something else.

    On the other hand, fanservice is a nice staple of the romance genre. Unfortunately, OS doesn't excel at fanservice enough to keep my attention despite not caring for the plot, like Ichigo 100% did. I'll probably read a couple more volumes, anyway... I kinda liked things at the start, so it may take that direction again sometime.

    While I'm at it, favorite girls, anybody?

    I have read first three volumes so far. Have a friend over to stay so haven't had much time. At the moment I'm just waiting for something to happen. There isn't enough in the plot at the moment for my liking.

    Favourite girl? Hmmm I dunno I thought it was pretty funny how Yayoi used the guys like that and Yamato says that he is scared of what she will become.

    Yeah... if you haven't already, you might wanna look for a different bittorrent client like BitTornado or BitComet. They allow you to choose out of the batch which ones to download first, or whether or not to download some or not... quite handy when the only torrent available includes all 75 episodes and the two lengthy OVAs.
