    This manga doesn't have annoying male lead and the comedy is quite good too. One of the very few romance manga where I didn't find any annoying female characters too. Good choice for a light read.

    Wow, I was wondering if this manga has a section here. I really enjoy reading the series and I feel very sorry for the poor guy.:laugh I enjoy the female characters and how they treat the guy differently in their own way. I somewhat feel sorry for the bunny girl because she has to be in character for the kids but does have a very nice face under that mask.:laugh

    Quick question, but are the chatpers published weekly or monthly.
    Also, if I recall, didn't this series get green lit for a live action television show.

    And you are right about live-action adaptation:

    But aside from GTO and Genshiken I haven't seen LA series which didn't suck so I'm not really looking forward to it.

    Wow, this is like a second Love Hina.

    Washes away any taste Akamatsu left me :giogio

    Will be reading.

    Doesn't the title translate to "Welcome to the Palace" ?

    EDIT: This also feels vaguely like a hentai series, where the man is a manager in a pro wrestling association :hehee

    Awesome, so Imangascans went back to scanlating it.:laugh It's been a while and from the looks of it there are 5 volumes released, though the Vol.4 chapters are being scanlated right now.

    Anyway, enjoyed the chapter. So it would appear not only the belt is on the line but El Palacio's ref as well. :laugh

    Anyway, looks like Tadasuke is getting his memory back finally and (of course) he knows Ouka from his childhood or so it would seem.

    Looks like Tadasuke is getting parts of his memory back and Ouka is getting back to sparring hard in the ring. Alot is on the line for the Palacio and HEAT wrestling divisions.

    Lol, very interesting chapter. Poor guy goes to HEAT only to be sent back to Palacio with an extra person in tow. Also, it would seem some of the characters in HEAT are interesting as well. Didn't know Death Carpenter was an actual carpenter. :laugh

    Currently there are six volumes out for this series. All of volumes 1-4 have been scanned and just two chapters of volume 5 (30-31). I don't know how many chapters are left in the 5th volume but there is still the whole volume 6 to be scanned.

    Spoiler:
    Heh, Death Carpenter fixes the table and upgrades Tadasuke's "house" in the process. For a heel she is sure compassionate on other people's problems. :laugh Interesting enough she wants a rematch with Ouka to finish what they started a few arcs back. Heh, I felt sorry for Tadasuke when he was used for that table spot.:laugh So now it's going to be an Itsuka-centric arc coming up.

    Well, heels are people too :p
    And I reckon in wrestling there are also anti-hero types and wrestlers who are sometimes "good" and sometimes "bad"...

    Character arcs sound good.

    I'd take her on as well...:maybe

    This fight will be fun as hell, especially if Itsuka's going to fight dirty.

    And since I'm not that familiar with wrestling myself, aren't fights normally rigged? Or is it just that they guys "cooperate" when it comes to certain moves, so they don't hurt themselves too badly?

    Yeah the match's outcomes are usually booked ahead of time to allow for the wrestlers to see how they are going to work the match. As for the moves, yes cooperation is mostly utilized to make sure the safety of the talent. Take the choke slam for example. When you see the Undertaker, Kane, or Big Show preform that move, they start by "grabbing" the person's throat, yet when they elevate the person to preform the move, notice that their hands go flat and are reposition to the person's upper chest. Doing this assist in the wrestler receiving the choke slam to position their bodies to take the bump of going down.

    Aren't there cases when they go "off-script"? For example when it's about a belt or something? Or would they be in big trouble?
    And how do they decide who's going to be the champion? By popularity among the fandom?

    The Hart/Michael's match at the 1997 Survivor Series aka Montreal Screwjob comes to mind. That was over the championship belt and whether or not Hart would leave the company with it. Hart's contract was already up with WWF/WWE and had signed with WCW. Vince didn't want him to leave with the belt but Hart didn't want to drop the belt to Shawn. The match was suppose to have Hart win via DQ and then forfeit the belt the next night, but Vince decided to have Shawn win without Hart's knowledge. That act at the end of the match nearly lead to some major dissension with the talent in the back and pretty much lead to bad blood between Bret and Vince for close to 12 years.

    I enjoyed this arc and I think that was the last chapter for vol. 5. Itsuka at least got some hits of of Ouka, but damn Ouka was really hitting those power moves on her.:laugh

    Vol. 6 I think is going to be focusing on Bunny Mask.
