Summary: Himoto Sora is a transfer student with a sense of justice and dreams of becoming a knight. Upon arriving at Utopia Gakuen, she learns of a virtual reality-like game played by the male students in which they use girls as weapons in battles for status and treat them as commodities. Seeing one of these girls being abused, she steps in, and through some sort of error, unwittingly becomes the first female participant of the game.
PPOV: Hello my wonderful Busta Gang, hope you are having a great sunday because today I'll present to you a manga that made the way I see harem manga differently, and this master piece is called Shitsurakuen by Naomura Tooru.
So, where to start? This is an incredible manga, full with talented drawings that will captivate you in a minute. The characters are attaching, especially the main character, that I was paticularly happy she wasn't like other harem I've seen up until now; well, you know, were the main character is super charismatic and all the girls are going for him and fighting for him.
In contrary, what I loved was the fact that, you had few people that really liked the main character (as usual, not really good with names, sorry.) and those who were by her side, some were concern about the the fact that there were associated to her and others were incredibily proud to be part of her team.
Furthermore, we have the plot that I just adore, because it made me hate the manga so much that when it came to the end of it, I was amazingly sad and wanted more. The story will definitly make you angry, that's a fact not an advise, but will sincerely make you speechless on the amount of skill the author has, which will make you want to read it to the end. I myself did not regrette it even a single seconds. I don't usually read harems, but this one was definitely the best exception I could make.
Otherwise, you can still ignore my advise and not finish the manga. You do you, but don't blame me later if you pass by something mind blowing. Anyway, that's it for me today, hope you enjoyed this short moemnt together and I'll see you soon for another discovery.
