Otomen volume 6


Today's post is on Otomen volume 6 by Aya Kanno. It is the sixth in her Otomen series. It is 200 pages long and is publishes by Shojo Beat. As this is the sixth volume in this series, you need to have read the first five volumes to understand the story. The cover a dark blue has Asuka in the center with flowers and ribbons with bows around him looking at the reader. The intended reader is someone who likes shojo manga, humor, and love stories. There is no foul language, no sex, and very mild violence in this manga. The story is told from third person close of the main character with moments of the other characters added in for plot development. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Having Girly Hobbies Doesn't Make You Less Manly! Asuka's protégé Yamato has fallen in love with a girl and needs help winning her over. He pleads with Asuka to go on a practice date with him--and play the role of the girl! Practice makes perfect, but will that be the case for Yamato?

Review- Like all the previous volumes we get more than just one story in this volume. We finish the beauty samurai arc with Asuka and Hajime both stop doing it because their manager wants them to do strange things, like starring in a movie. Then we get Yamato trying to a cool guy to impress this girl who just happens to be one of Juta's younger sisters. Of course we get all kinds of humorous trouble and Asuka getting to look at very cute things. The younger sister instead is falling for the third otomen in the series, Kitora but trouble is there before the love can even begin because she hates flowers! I like this volume with all the  extra time given to the newer characters but I want more Ryo, just like Asuka. She is really not in this volume and I missed her. Still fun volume and a very cute series.

I give this volume a Five out Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
