Manga Monday Ch. 30 – Abnormal-kei Joshi

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 – Abnormal-kei Joshi

Summary (

High schooler Shiina Shinya thinks that all girls are pretty much good-for-nothing, mostly because he doesn’t understand them at all. That doesn’t stop him from being surrounded by strange girls! Tsubasa Tooka, a cute, much-admired girl, stalks him. Shikimura Masami is majorly into masochism, and has recruited Shinya into her play sessions. Ikari Satsuki seems suspiciously interested in the recent serial stabbings, and seems to want to drag Shinya into it. Banjou Yoruko, a normally quiet, bookish girl, has decided she and Shinya are bound up in some fantasy setting. Uchida Yumeji is the school’s sleeping beauty, who spends all of her time in the infirmary because she requires so much sleep. Shinya brings her newspapers, so she can keep up with current events in the short time she spends awake. Lastly, Okui Akane is convinced she is a vampire. For all Shinya knows, it could be true, but in practice it just means that he has to let her drink his blood. How will Shinya deal with all these good-for-nothing girls that complicate his life?

Hako’s Thoughts:

That plot summary is quite the read, isn’t it?  Although it has a rare translation update chance, Abnormal-kei is an interesting, strange twist on the harem genre.  We’re so used to seeing all these harem romance comedies that have cute, happy-go-lucky girls that are all dead set on the main character.  However, in Shinya’s case, his relationship with these girls that hide behind a facade and would only reveal their true selves in front of their object of affection/obsession, Shinya.  I can only hope this series gets more publicity and that we eventually get to see why each of these girls act the way they do, especially in regards to their “love” towards Shinya.
