3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By F. Caldwell on August 7, 2009
Format: Paperback
Volume 1 of Otomen was cute, endearing, and a wee bit cliched. Volume 2 didn't really grab me, what with the "surprise fiancee" story. Every one in shoujo manga seems to have a surprise fiancee. It kind of takes the shock out of it. Plus that girl was more than a little creepy. But Volume 3 has again cemented my love of Asuka and friends. It returns us to the cute and endearing stories that I love so much.
Again for those who haven't been paying attention thus far, Asuka Masamune is a super manly high school student harboring a light and fluffy secret. For beneath his masculine facade is a romantic, cooking, sewing, girly man. By now he has gained two friends who know his secret: Ryo Miyakozuka (the clueless tomboyish girl that he's in love with) and Juta Tachibana (a womanizer who's secretly a shoujo manga writer). Book 3 also introduces Asuka's would be kendo rival: Hajime Tonomine. I hope he shows up again in the next book, and judging by the cover I think he will.
Storywise, where Volume 1 focused on building a relationship between Asuka and Ryo, volume 3 has stories that cover all of Asuka's life, not just romance. Probably partially because Asuka's so nervous that he can't even ask Ryo to be his girlfriend without a heavy dose of coaching. Very heavy. It would be irritating if the whole thing wasn't so adorable. Light romance or not, I really enjoyed the whole book. Chapter 1 has Ryo volunteering at a day care. They're short handed so she asks Asuka to help out too. Of course since his home life was anything but normal he has no idea what to do. His attempt at fatherly activies with the kids was hilarious! Chapter 2 is described on the back of the book. Ryo and Asuka go to an amusement park together. It should be a happy romantic date, right? Wrong!

By Misaki on August 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
The art style was more than passing in this page turning shoujo work.
The character Asuka Masumune is an incredibly effeminite guy who likes
cooking, sewing, and other girlish hobbies. The size of the book was perfect
and often focuses on short stories involving a romantic relationship
between Asuka and his would be girlfriend Ryo. Some of the parts in book
2 threw me off, as the fiancee part was a bit dry and lacking. However, the
3rd volume brought it all back for me. This is a worthwhile buy for any shoujo
manga fan.

This is a series that has kind of helped me get back into manga after a several-year hiatus. The lovable characters and fun plot keeps me guessing just how Asuka and Ryo will react with each other and the whole series overall just gives me the warm fuzzies. The art style remains pretty decent to me, too, and I definitely am going to keep going through this series. C:

I LOVE Otomen, it is, in my opinion, by far the best shojo manga out there. The art is wonderful, the author is creative and the story is amazing! It's very original and funny and just incredible. I would highly recommend this to any shojo manga lover who wants a more original story.
