Main Character: (3.5/5) The main reason why I probably didn't like Ririchiyo as much as I could have was that I found her personality to be a little too unoriginal.

I am collecting them all and it's definitely a manga collection an anime lover will want.

Inu X Boku SS volume 1 is available in English and while I am happy to have this great titles as an official English release there are problems in it that I have already complained to the company Yen Press about that I hope you also do so that future volumes can have better quality.

- Karuta was called Carta

- We all know the essence of Nobara's character starts with her trademark `Maniac!' but they changed that into `Smexy!'.

Even in Japanese it's maniac. How are they going to address this when it gets to the part where they ask her about it in vol 2 or 3 when she's says it DOESN'T mean "sexy"?

- Soronizuka speaks like he is a surfer. He says "bro", "narly", "wicked", and other stupid catchphrases that Soronizuka has never said before in his life. He sounds even dumber than his original Japanese self.

- Watanuki's introduction to this manga is even worse. He comes in and says "What's up, my bitches?" when in the Japanese version he simply says "Nice to meet you". Watanuki is a delinquent, but he is a failure at one because he is polite. He does says "bastard" in the Japanese version, but it is the only curse word he says. I can easily see Kagerou saying "What's up, my bitches?" than Watanuki. 8| Also, he says "homies" too.

This is not translating a series to English this assuming you know characters and thus adding stuff they don't say thus turning the person into a whole new character.

I'm not discouraging people from buying volume 1 but encouraging you to complain to the company so that we can get an ACCURATE translation in future volumes.

The contacts for yen Press are at their website.

This convo and more details are at mangafox.
Thanx for looking.

Having read another collected translation of Cocoa Fujiwara's work I was looking for more of her (yup one of the rare successful female manga artists) of her work when I found the anime series "Inu X Boku SS." I enjoyed the anime so went searching for the manga but only found fan translations and scans. Once I heard it was available in an official English translation and in the USA I had to buy it.

Sometimes the fan translations are better but in this case the official is superb and, of course, the drawing is exactly the same. The story is both creepy and enticing but it is also quick paced and edgy. I found it appealed to the female dominant characters I liked but also wasn't as straight forward as some of these can be so it challenged me in positive ways.

Warning: this does have an adult-teen relationship so if that bothers you, don't buy it.

If you want to encourage officially translations and more releases of manga in the USA buy the series you love when they become available.

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

I was really hopeful with this series. I watched the anime just earlier this year and really enjoyed it, and have heard very good things about the manga. Still, I was surprised (mildly) to see that Yen Press was publishing it, but added it to my list immediately. And because of how excited I was, how hopeful, I doused that with a lot of worry. Because I didn’t want to have my expectations too high, to be disappointed. Either way, this was a really good volume. It didn’t get me obsessed or anything yet, but with a few more volumes, who knows.

Our main character, Ririchiyo, has a hard time not being mean to other people, no matter how badly she wants to be nice. She’s grown up with a hard shell, and doesn’t know how to tear it down. At the start of the series, she moves into a dorm-like building, with several other people like her, and all of whom have a servant/bodyguard. Hers is Soushi, who is very fond of her, rather protective and ‘emotional’ and attached to her. She doesn’t want a bodyguard, but he doesn’t intend to leave, unless she strictly orders him to do so, and she doesn’t want to do that.

I love their relationship, particularly how Soushi acts with her, all adoring and fond and not wanting to leave her side for a second or let her make her own breakfast. I am really looking forward to their relationship growing and developing, and for them to develop on their own, as well as seeing more of their back-stories.

Then there’s the other occupants of the house. They’re all very unique and adorable and hilarious.

I saw the anime of this series and thought it was really good so I decided to try the manga series as well. I thought this volume was really fun and I love all the characters so far. This volume connects with the first four episodes of the anime series. I look forward to reading more of the manga and seeing how it differs from the anime as well as getting to know all the characters better.

Contains Chapters 1 - 4
Chapter 1: The Dog and I
Chapter 2: The Lonesome Dog
Chapter 3: The Real Contract
Chapter 4: Ayakashi Hall Walk Rally
