    Stumbled upon this series when browsing kissmanga. There hasn't been a manga that has made me laugh like this one in a while.

    Yeah it's not overt but it seems like it to me though I will read a few more. But we also have a siscon in this series who sniffs her sister's clothes. I will give it a chance though because you never know what plot points will surface.

    It's a gag series, so there may not even be a plot. Or at this point there really aren't any hints to some underlying plot. It's just meant to be funny.

    Hrmmm true, just guys getting drunk, and said guys redecorating MC's room with porn, imoutos, and porn with the tsundere cousin's face taped on. Wait didn't one of them put out a bunch of gay porn?

    The otaku pretty-boy did. After the MC saw the anime girl styled room, he said he wanted the "exact opposite" styling in the room. The otaku friend came to the insane conclusion that the MC wanted a yaoi theme room.

    I'm pretty sure that the cousins face was taped to the yaoi posters too :rotfl

    Hah! Priceless.

    And you know you spent too much time in manga and anime when you realize MC and his cousin could end up a thing because it's Japan, they don't even flinch at cousins hooking up.

    Theres actually several people I know of that are following it. 4 or 5 of us mods follow it. Just this thread is sadly inactive.

    This is one if the few times I'll say this, but the little sister is a great edition to the cast. She and Nanaka are hilariously similar.

    And where the hell did Kohei pull the chainsaw from :lmao
