Today's post is on Otomen volume 10 by Aya Kanno. It is the ninth in her Otomen series. It is 208 pages long and is publishes by Shojo Beat. As this is the tenth volume in this series, you need to have read the first nine volumes to understand the story. The cover is grey with Juta looking at the reader with Love Chick in the background. 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- A potion at school causes all the guys to act manly and all the girls to act feminine! Suddenly, Asuka loses interest in all the girly hobbies he loves, and Ryo is working at a bakery? can anything break the spell they're under and turn them back to normal?
Review- We finish the story with the female teacher who wants to make Asuka and Ryo break up because Asuka is Asuka and not a jerk who treats his girlfriend badly. She discovers Asuka's otomen nature but because Asuka helped her overcome her self-acceptance issue she is going to keep it a secret. So continuing with make people be gender types plot in this volume we have a mad scientist who wants to be seen as a genius. So he makes a potion and tricks everyone with hypnosis. But because only the person can change themselves of course it does not stay. The last story is everyone cosplaying as feudal Japan. I am really enjoying this story arc because of the emphasis on self-acceptance. More romance and cuteness Ahead!
I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
