It’s Manga Monday. A weekly post highlighting a different series. I’ll mostly do posts on completed or ongoing series that are regularly updated. While I do not condone scanlations, please support the creator and licensing companies by purchasing the work where available.
This week’s manga is – Hachi Ichi
Shinichirou would rather spend his life playing games on the internet, but sadly he’s a heir to a company. His grandfather deems his current life-style unfit for a heir, so he throws him into a house with eight young and beautiful girls. What’s more, within one year he’ll have to choose one of them as his bride. What will happen to him now?
Another manga for the NSFW shelf, Hachi Ichi is another one of those manga that is every man’s dream saucy harem comedy. The main points of interest for this series, aside from the obvious “ecchi” tag, are the art style, character design and the genuine curiousity as to which girl Shinichirou will choose in the end… IF he chooses a girl in the end. As far as the character designs go, each girl has an individual style to go with their personalities. Of course, their shared feelings for Shinichirou and responsibilities for the household are all the same, their different habits show up as a means to progress the story. By that I mean that their “true selves” become accepted as part of them, increasing the relationship between them and Shinichirou. But really, if you’re looking for a saucy, but not so borderline smut manga, check out Hachi Ichi. There’s eight girls Shinichirou has to choose from, which one would you marry?
