Hanayashiki no Juunintachi - Flower Mansion's Residents


Sakura Aki is a penniless high schooler who likes to cook and does other "unmanly" things. His grandfather and father are disciplinary on gender roles and beat up Aki everytime he does a thing that women would usually do, like cleaning. When his father leaves him absolutely broke, and with his grandfather realizing Aki's "unmanly" flaws, he sends him to live at one of the dorms at an all girls' school that he runs, a school where distinguished young ladies of the country attend, the Hanayashiki - Flower Estate-, to teach him a lesson.

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Gender Bender, Psychological, Romance, School Life, Shounen
Author: Katsura Asuka
Artist: Katsura Asuka


Going by the description, you'd think this was just another boring harem manga. Except it's not. At all. I'm not even sure I should say anything about the story except give it a chance and don't drop it after the first chapter. Seriously, if you judge it by the first chapter, you'll be missing out on something pretty great. If you stay with it, you will be rewarded with a very interesting manga.

Heh I can relate. I swear this manga is like a hidden gem, but most people would likely drop it before it gets good.

It's definitely not a harem manga, but when you start that's what you it makes you expect. Quite a bit dark too.

This...

is very good. I was expecting another cheesy harem manga (that's OK, because I like cheesy harem mangas), but this is different. There's a real dark side to the characters that creates a wonderful level of suspense. Somebody needs to get translating this now. Also, this just might have the most bizarre romance geometry I can remember in a manga, and that's saying something.

Good to know. I saw it was finished, but I didn't see the last few chapters translated. I'll look harder.

Edit: If you don't mind can you shoot me message with where you read it, the last chapter I can find translated is chapter13.

Ah... Well I have to revise my opinion of this manga since it ended before we really got into it.

Shame really, the author left a lot of good stuff on the table.
