Just what the title says.... May 22, 2008
He Is My Master is the story of a boy who lost his family but gained a fortune. He is perverted, has a uniform fetish, and has no ethics what so ever. Unlike most male characters he enjoys peeking at the girls, blackmailing them and, in general, taking advantage of them. How refreshing. The two girls in question have run away from home, so they need a place to live, need money and need somebody to, in general, care for them. One of them even LIKES wearing the maid's outfit. A must for any manga library.
Great manga Jan 5, 2008
The manga has a cuteness yet pervertedness about it. Add comedy to that and we have ourselves a winner. Even all that considered, I expected a little more. Good read, pick one up ^_^
A hilarious gag comedy with a wink and nod to all the manga cliches Oct 1, 2007
I was introduced to Seven Seas Entertainment's He Is My Master by a friend who is a huge anime and manga fan. I've only recently begun reading manga so I took his recommendation seriously. At first, the breaking of the 5th wall antics and dialogue in the He Is My Master was a tad surprising, but once I got in the flow of the story (what story there was which usually involved one of the sister maids getting her clothes off in one way or another) I was hooked on this title.
The premise of He Is My Master is of a 14 year-old boy whose parents pass away leaving him with a huge mansion and all their millions. With no other adult in sight this boy named Yoshitaka proceeds to satisfy all his juvenile and hormonal dreams by hiring a pair of sisters, Izumi and Mitsuki Sawatari (14 and 13 years of age respectively) to be his live-in maids. The rest of the first volume involves Yoshitaka's propensity to try and satisfy his lolita schoolgirl uniform fetish, french maid uniform fetish, peeping tom fetish and a slew of others which is too numerous to count. All of this with Izumi Sawatari taking the brunt of his attentions. The book also introduces a lecherous and way-too-clever alligator named Pochi who also happens to be the younger sister's pet. Between Yoshitaka and Pochi's attentions it's surprising that Izumi even manages to keep a semblance of her attire from becoming ripped off.
He Is My Master if full of comedy which usually falls under the gag comedy type. The book also manages to heavily break the 5th wall as characters in the story will speak as if they know they are manga characters and thus always mention just how cliched the situations they find themselves in all the time. Mitsuki is very guilty of constantly speaking to the reader and her dialogue always have hilarious consequences for her older sister Izumi.
He Is My Master is not your typical harem girl manga and it's lead male character breaks the mold of the male lead who avoids the girls' attentions. Yoshitaka knows what he likes and wants and will go to any means no matter how underhanded to get what he wants. Here's to hoping that the anime gets licensed soon and makes it way to DVD in the US.
