I think they're going to continue to scanlate it in MQ like the first release until the tankouban, graphic novel, comes out (which are higher quality and easier to clean) then they're going to redo the chapters in HQ. Kefi is a good group, I get my Katekyo Hitman Reborn! chapters from them and they release atleast 1 a week.

It was my dream to do weekly scanlations, which... I don't think we'll make it for Reborn :S Damn VIZ licensing it right after I start the project x.x We'll scanlate as much as we can until October (VIZ official release date) though. Things are going really fast on that side.

And yeah, ch2 was good. When I saw the spoiler (http://www.kefi.org/forum/index.php?topic=451.0), I was like... what, are we going into Hentai here? but after reading the whole chapter, it was much better.

but i'm expecting more mature...or at least not harem semi-ecchi boy-can't-decide-who-and-faint-when-looking-at-girls manga from yabuki sensei :( i love black cat..simple and good graphic..

kefi's omake's funny though..
about that guy who took kefi's money to fly to japan to water flowers..hahahaha...

barbapapa
May 31, 2006, 07:56 AM
it's shounen, of course it's not mature... and how was Black Cat mature, that was just a shounen too

go read some seinen if you want mature storylines

karasu
May 31, 2006, 08:01 AM
no no.. i mean.. a shounen would be ok.. but i'm not really comfortable with love-hina like manga :( unnecessary nudity... just a personal preference... no offense meant to anyone..

Katekyo
June 03, 2006, 04:39 PM
I think To Love-RU is a pretty good manga. I mean it's totally cliche with all the other shonen mangas where the lonely boy gets a magical girlfiend (i.e. Ah! Megami Sama, DNA^2, Video Girl Ai etc.) but I have faith in Yabuki Kenataro to make this one kick ass.

And finally chapter 5 leaves us on a cliffhanger with a possible second love interest for Lala.

[br]Posted on: June 07, 2006, 02:21:06 PM_________________________________________________who is the perv really.. the scenario writer or the mangaka?
hasemi saki or yabuki kentarou?

i'd say the writer... the only nudity that kentarou-sensei shown in black cat was the time when eve used her new blade on those guards..

Galth
June 07, 2006, 04:40 PM
Yeah, i remember that one. XD

Hoorah for the censoring cat squad !!

barbapapa
June 07, 2006, 07:32 PM
I think the writer is a woman tho xD
And he did use fanservice a little in Black Cat. Most of the time it was subtle though; good boobage on Rinslet, high-school girl fetisj with Kyoko, gothic loli with Eve. I think he just waited till his artwork improved enough to draw proper fanservice. ^^;

oceanizer
June 07, 2006, 07:38 PM
Writer is a guy, iirc ^^ Yeah, weird to have Saki as his name... And yes, I think writer is the pervert, too. Or maybe Jump editorial is forcing them to put a little ecchi here and there. Never know...

barbapapa
June 07, 2006, 08:36 PM
Well, he draws good ecchi. So why not, I suppose =P

I don't mind. It just amused me to see it pop up everywhere.

Anyway, I sort of agree with xi0 about it. It's just everyday hijinks without much to drive the story. I worked on it untill the fun wore off. I'll still read it when M7 puts it out, for old times sake and the sheer perversion of it all.
Hey, who knows, it might even develop a real story sort of like Reborn did?

Hey, who knows, it might even develop a real story sort of like Reborn did?

From your lips to the mangaka's senario writer's ear's *to lazy to look up names >.<*

The thing about TlR is that it is a fun read but i cant see it pulling a reborn i mean Rito isnt the type of person i could see in any fighting tournaments or anything i mean LaLa on the other hand i could see fighting... Maybe TlR can turn into something with a little time jump? *a few years latter Lala becomes the queen and has to go back to her world that is being taken over by evil aliens and such and they are pervy Aleins that want everyone to work in bikinies or something*

So her Father was shown.......

was that a big shock? i mean we all guessed he would be a midget and a little perverted wimp >.<

So my qustion now is what is going to happen now? i mean there isnt anything left to do.. here is how i see the manga ending now >.>

Rito + Haru

Lala + New guy

And thats it >.< rap up the manga in 2-4 chapters >.>

If it dosnt end soon i hope they put a main plot in there somehow.. i mean Ichigo 100% had Manaka makeing movies *main plot* and then it was who was he going to pick? Nishino or Aya? or one of the other girls *thou i dont think anyone thought he would pick one of the other girls* ToLoveRu has Lala who wanted Rito but now kindof dosnt care..... ><

Has anyone found an english translation of chapters 49 or 50 yet? Maximum7 has slowed to a crawl with it (that is to say, there have been no updates on it lately) so I've been going for the french versions at http://www.toloveru.com/ and then using www.freetranslation.com to get a rough translation as to what is going on, but that takes forever to type all of the dialogue and text in. Any one have any better ideas or sources?

Should we just try to make a scan team of our own to translate the french to english scans?[/sarcasm] I don't know french, but I'd be willing to bet that there is someone who does here.

Its pretty cool but its too much like Girls Bravo. Way too much fanservice making the reader wish there was more. Its pretty cool how yabuki has cameos of his OC

Kinda odd. His art has really changed from his black cat work. Black cat the art was pretty serious and barely any fan service while in toloveru you see a p[anty shot or breasts like every page and the art has a more cartoony feel when it comes to faces

Yeah, Rito seems to be moving away from Sairenji and towards Lala at the moment. Makes you wonder how its all going to end doesnt it. Maybe a new marriage candidate will come and take Lala away so Rito can be with Sairenji

Ch 103 summary
Run is taking a walk outside in casual clothes when she passes by a couple. She wonders aloud how she can win Rito's affection. Suddenly a man approaches her and hands her a business card. Turns out the guy is a scout seeking someone to debut as a new pop idol. Run is excited and tells Rito that she's going to be an idol just for him (meanwhile, poor Saruyama gets jealous http://forums.animesuki.com/images/as.global/smilies/frustrated.gif).

Soon after her debut, Run is everywhere: TV, magazine covers, billboard ads, etc. Her CD is selling like crazy, and Mikan tells Rito and Lala that the three of them should go check out her concert.

Run enters the stage and greets the crowd, and the event is a big success. However, the arena breaks out into pandemonium as all the guys fall for Run and try to get close to her. Rito quickly gets Run out of there while Lala diverts the crowd's attention (and the guys don't seem to mind http://forums.animesuki.com/images/as.global/smilies/heh.gif).

Rito asks if Run is alright, and Run quickly hugs him. She thanks him for saving her back there, and tries to kiss him...but Rito quickly pulls away (note: good job dude http://forums.animesuki.com/images/as.global/smilies/heh.gif). Run says that she's going back on stage, since the fans are waiting. Despite being a little nervous, she tells Rito that she'll be alright and she'll do her best for him. Rito is pleased and smiles.

However, when Run returns to the stage she finds Lala has become the new pop idol sensation http://forums.animesuki.com/images/as.global/smilies/heh.gif

It is kind of a shame that the "Riko" storyline ended so quickly. That could have produced several more interesting chapters, and it would have been nice to see more of a story arc to develop in this manga to develop for a change.

Also, thank you for the chapter 103 spoilers. :hbunny

とらぶる104 兄妹
扉絵 死んじゃうくらい可愛い美柑たまの持つフライパンの上にリトが乗ってます

舞台は美柑たまの学校です。放課後です。久しぶりに晴子てんてーが出てきました
晴子「美柑ちゃん大丈夫?何だか今日顔色が良くないみたいだけど・・・」
美柑「あ・・・大丈夫です、晴子先生・・・(早く帰って晩御飯の準備しなきゃ・・・)」

美柑たまフラフラです

リトとララが帰って来ました。居間にはぐったり倒れた美柑たまが
どうやら38度2分も熱があるようです。大変だ何とかしないと
それでも家事をしようとする美柑たまを休ませてリトとララが洗濯やお風呂掃除をします

リトが風呂掃除をしている最中に洗濯機が爆発しました。ララの仕業です
それよりもリトが持っているのは美柑たまのブラジュアーです。年頃になって来ましたね。様子を見に来た美柑たまが慌てて取り上げましたw

で、今度は晩御飯の支度です。リトが買出しから帰ってきました。セリーヌも「家庭の医学」を読んで美柑たまの事を心配しています
帰って来たリトの目の前には裸エプロンのララがいましたw
リトとララはコンビニ弁当、そして美柑たまの為に滋養強壮のおかゆを作る為に材料を買ってきた様です。

できました
美柑「リトが作ったの!?へ~~どれどれ  う・・・・」
どうやら味の方はアレだった様です。不味かったら残せ!と言うリトに対して
美柑「いいよ・・・せっかく作ってくれたんだもん、うん薬だと思えば・・・うん・・・」

なんて良い子なんでしょう。そりゃリトでなくてもこう言いますわ

リト「スゲーよな、美柑は・・・美柑の料理いつもうまいもんな~~・・・オレなんかこの程度の料理でもスゲー苦労しちゃってさ
   道具もどこに何をしまってあるかとか結構わかんなくてさ。やっぱ美柑がいなきゃダメだな~って・・・」

はい、スイッチ入りましたw真っ赤っかの美柑たまです

美柑「う、うまい事言っちゃって・・・やっぱ結構罪な男だよねリトって・・・」

で、衝撃発言です

美柑「リト・・・知ってる・・・?知らないよねあんたは・・・私たちが血の繋がった兄妹じゃないって事・・・」

リト、大動揺wそして美柑大笑い  そしてリトが心配してんのに!って言った次の発言です。もはや小学生の色気ではありません

美柑「わかってるよ感謝してるって。・・・・・・ありがと・・・・ お  兄  ち  ゃ  ん」

それを見ていたララは兄妹っていいね~ってしみじみして自分で作った料理をザスティンにあげたらザスティンは生死をさ迷いましたw

Summary

Yui is walking to school when she spots Rito and Lala. Lala mentions that she can't wait till they get home, which bothers her.

Later in the classroom, she overhears Haruna talking to Lisa and Mio about what her sister Akiho said regarding love. Lisa and Mio egg her on, and Yui gets upset and leaves, thinking ('Love' this, 'love' that....is that all anyone thinks about? Students studying hard, that's supposed to be all that matters!) As she walks along the hallway she spots Yami reading a book.

Yui: "Ah, you're Yami-chan, are you not?"
Yami: "You must be...Kitagawa?"
Yui: "Kotegawa! : Anyway, you're always reading those books..."
Yami: "Earth's literature is so fascinating in that the characters can fall in love without realizing it, and soon enough their fates will overlap..."
Yui: *thinks of Rito* "...and then, what happens?"
Yami: "I've only read a chapter so far from this romance novel. If you'd like, I can lend it to you. Does it interest you?"
Yui: "HUH? W-what makes you think that! I-I'm not into those things!"
Yami: "Imagine how it would feel not knowing such emotions existed...I think it's important to acknowledge those feelings."
Yui: "....."

Thank you for the spoilers! :hbunny

This chapter seems to be actually bringing about some development in Yui's character (and perhaps even Yami's as well). Of Rito's love interests, I have often thought that Yui has shown the most development so far in terms of changing in her relationship with Rito. Hopefully, this will be carried further, and we will get to see more of a dynamic from the other girls too. (Although Run has been around for a while, I still don't have a good sense of her personality. I mean, I understand that she is in love with Rito, but what else defines her personality that sets her apart?)
[hr]
Since this thread is not just for posting spoiler pics/summaries but also discussion, I thought a poll might help generate some discussion in this thread. :hbunny
[hr]
After re-reading some of the chapters, I now have a better sense of Run's personality. She acts innocent and sweet on the outside, but on the inside, she is rather hateful of Lala. Plus, unlike Ren, she actually shows a bit of brilliance in her scheming to take down Lala, whereas Ren usually just charges in idiotically only to leave crying whenever Lala explicitly states that she has no romantic feelings for him. Run has definitely climbed up my likeability charts for this series.

ザスティン「ナナ様とモモ様が!!?」

ザスティン「何をおっしゃるデビルーク王
      ララ様に比べればお二人などまだまだ可愛いもの・・・この親衛隊長ザスティンにお任せを!!」

その頃、結城家では・・・

美柑「リトー、お風呂にお湯ためといてー」
リト「おーう!」

リトが浴室に行きます。誰も居ない浴室から気配が

リト「ん?誰か入ってり?・・・わけねーよな・・・」

開けたらナナとモモがお風呂に入ってましたw

リト「・・・・・(赤面)あ・・・あれ!?」
ナナ「のぞき魔だ――ッ!!」(洗面器をリトに投げる)
リト「ぐェ」

騒動終わってナナとモモも居間へ。ちょこんと座ってます

ララ「ナナ、モモ!!どうしたの急に!?」
ナナ「やっほー姉上」
美柑「大丈夫?リト(汗」
リト「うう・・・なんでいきなりフロに入ってんだ・・・」
ララ「もぉ~~来るなら来るって言ってくれたらよかったのにィ」
ナナ「いや~慌てて出て来たもんだからさ(汗」
ペケ「慌てて出て来た?」
ナナ「あ・・・いや何でもない!」
モモ「そ、それよりお姉様!その後リトさんと結婚に向けての動きはありましたか?
   例えばキスとか、もっと色々な・・・・キャッ(はぁと)」
ララ「え、何?」
リト「ななな、何言ってんだ―――!!」
モモ「その様子じゃまだみたいですね・・・」
ナナ「キキキ、キス~!?結婚の前にそんな事するワケないだろ、モモ!(赤面)」

モモは随分おませさんですねw

ナナ「あ、でもおフロのぞくようなヤツだしな~~」
ララ「のぞき?リトが?」
リト「勝手に人をのぞき魔にするなっ!!」
ナナ「やっぱ姉上にはコイツ合わねーと思うんだけど」
モモ「あら、私はそうは思いませんよ
   庭のセリーヌちゃんも言ってました。リトさんはとても親切で優しい方だと」
リト「え?」
美柑「セリーヌちゃんが言ってたって・・・どういう事?」

モモ「あ・・・お姉様から聞いてなかったんですね
   私は植物と・・・ナナは動物と心を通わせる事が出来るんです」
美柑「動物や植物と心を通わせる?」
ナナ「デビルークでも私達にしか持ってない能力なんだぜ!」
ザスティン「ナナ様!モモ様ァ!!」
ララ「ザスティン!?」

居間の窓からザスティンが入って来ましたw

リト   「ちゃんと玄関から入れ!!」
ザスティン「先ほどデビルーク王から直々の通信がありました。御二人が――勉強がイヤで家出いたと!!」
リト   「へっ(汗」
ララ   「そうだったの?」
モモ   「だって・・・」
ナナ   「面倒なんだもん。教育係に張り付かれて宇宙の歴史とか王族のたしなみとか・・・」
ララ   「あ―――確かに!」
ザスティン「幼少の頃、ララ様もよく逃げ出しておられました
      しかし!長きに渡る銀河の戦乱をデビルーク王が治めて十余年!!
      これからの時代は勉強も大切な事なのです!!ですから!!・・・あれ?」
美柑   「二人とも逃げてったよ(汗」
ザスティン「しまった!追うぞ!!」

ララ   「困った二人だねー、家出なんて」
リト   「お前が言うか・・・(汗」

土手まで逃げたナナとモモ

ナナ「くっそ~、地球にはザスティンもいる事忘れてた!」
モモ「はぁ・・・ナナが家出しようなんて言うからこんな事に・・・」
ナナ「な、何言ってんだ、モモだって賛成しただろっ!」
モモ「それはその場の流れと言うもので・・・・」
ナナ「フン、いっつもいい子ぶるんだから・・・ズルイよなモモは!
   ま、いつも優秀な双子の私と比べられてひがむのは分かるけどさっ」

ナナ高笑いw
ピキッ
なにか切れた音ですw

モモ(闇)「言いたい事はそれだけ?ねぇ、それだけ?」

モモがナナのしっぽをくりくりしちゃいますw

ナナ「ふあっ、あン
   し、尻尾は反則・・・っ・・・あっ・・・あ・・・お返しっ!!」

今度はナナがモモのしっぽをくすぐりますw

モモ「ひぁっ!!こ、こら離しなさい~やん」
ナナ「んんっ・・・あんたこそ~~~」

ちちくりあっていたら子安ちゃんが来ましたw

ザスティン「見つけましたぞ二人共っ!!!さ・・・迎えの船も手配しました。こちらへ・・・」
ナナ&モモ「ううっ」
ザスティン「王の御子とはいえ力は我々が上だ。ララ様のような発明品もないしな
      お二人の特技といえば植物や動物の心が読めるメルヘンチックな能力・・・それもこの場においてはなんの役にも立つまい」

ナナ「それはどーかなザスティン、私達あちこちの星をまわって結構お友達増えたんだぜ」

ナナが携帯を取り出します

ザスティン「それは・・・もしやララさまと同じ・・・!!」
ナナ   「情報入力した物をいつでも呼び出せる!お姉様が発明した伝送システム「デダイヤル」だよ
      じゃ、紹介するよ。シシナベ星で知り合った―――ギガ・イノシシのギーちゃん!!!」
ザスティン「な!!」

どこの遊○王ですかw
ザスティン達は吹き飛ばされますw

ザスティン「バ・・・馬鹿な!あれは危険指定種ではないか!!む!?ぬわ―――!?」

今度は地面からウドラーが出て来ましたw

モモ「ごめんなさいザスティンさん、うっかりオキワナ星のシバリ杉さん呼んじゃいました(はぁと)」

シバリ杉さん復活したんかw
ララ達もザスティンを追いかけてようやく到着しました
シバリ杉の触手が春・・・じゃなくて美柑たまを襲いますw

美柑「いっ」

美柑「や~~~~っ(赤面)降ろして、リト~~~!!」
リト「待ってろ、今助ける!!(猪突進)どわ――っ!!」
ララ「スゴーイ!二人共珍しい動物や植物とお友達なんだねー」
リト「感心してる場合か!!」

そして・・・

「デビルーク王!ザスティンより通信が入っております」
ギド「つなげ」
ナナ「父上――!私達しばらく地球に滞在する事にしたから!」
モモ「ご心配なく、お父様♪」

ザスティン「すみません、ダメでした・・・(汗」

I read chapters 105 and 106 and loved them. Finally, Saruyama has a girl for him: Rito! I was so surprised to see that the brief scene where Rito as Riko runs into Saruyama would actually play such a significant role. It looks like by the end of the manga all of the characters may end up with Rito one way or another. :amuse I also enjoyed Yui's frustration with Rito only jumping on her to hide her for the principal. On the inside, she is as lustful as some of the other characters. Oh how the mighty have fallen. :tem
[hr]
Those Deviluke princesses are certainly interesting. Each of them seems to have a special characteristic/ability. Lala is an engineering wizard able to create amazing machines instanteously (which is cutely in contrast to her lack of common sense :amuse). Now it has been revealed that Nana and Momo can talk to animals and plants, respectively. I wonder if the Deviluke King or Zastin have any special powers also, but I doubt it.

Overall, chapter 108 was very enjoyable, and it should be interesting to add more girls to cast of regular characters. The twins seem to be about Mikan's age. It would be nice to see Mikan, Yami, and the twins having more interactions and possibly having a storyline.

Thanks though wade. Went back and edited my previous post. I just thought both were raw's (stupid of me in retrospect). Although I still don't completely understand (as they both contain different text, one being a Japanese raw(?) and the other a jojohot Chinese scan?

I was wondering how many of the people who read this manga watch the anime series?

I really like the anime. It diverges a little from the manga, but it stays true to the characters' personalities for the most part. (Oshizu's personality thus far seems a little different to me than it does in the manga, but perhaps that is because the anime has not yet included Oshizu possessing Haruna yet.)

A recent episode centered on Magial Kyoko, the television character, is probably one of the anime funniest episodes I have seen in quite a while. Mojack! O0

TheFallenAngel
October 10, 2008, 06:28 PM
Before I start, I'm Fallen Angel, a new member of this community and it is a pleasure to all meet you.

And second, as for the poll question of whom Rito should got to, I'd say Lala, but I wouldn't be angered if he chose Haruna.

Rito has been in love with Haruna since elementary school. But the fact that Lala abruptly came into his life, this is just what kind of "hurricane" that Rito's calm life needed. I want him to end up with Lala, not that I hate Haruna because she is cute, adorable and beautiful in personnality and I wouldn't be mad if they did end up together, but with these two, it's too plain and obvious that they make a perfect match. As for Lala and Rito, he'd be quite something 'cause they already have so much obstacles in their way, awkwards and bouncing moments and people always standing between them like space invaders. In a few words, it's like a roller-coaster with Lala: it goes up and down constantly and it's always interesting to see what's up next.

In one of the chapters of the "Trouble Quest" saga (chapters 93 to 99), Rito definitely revealed to Lala that he probably likes her and feels uneasy when she isn't around him, but he's just having a hard time figuring out whether it is love or not. As for Lala, she'll do anything in her powers to make Rito love her like she loves him and I think it is that self-gave challenge of hers that keep the story running and running longer. Recently Haruna confessed her feelings for Rito to Lala and even though Lala though to herself that she couldn't take advantage of Haruna's feelings, Haruna showed, even though she confessed, she still roothing for Lala's love wish to be granted towards Rito.

What I've noticed in this series, the three characters of the love triangle are or have been facing sentimental dilemmas:

Haruna tried to confessed to Rito, but as the friendship bond she shared with Lala grew bigger and became very important to her, she was feeling guilty that she'd try to confess to him on her back. So, instead of confessing to Rito, no matter the number of chances and ocassions, she chooses her friendship with Lala, but decided to step up recently like we all saw in chapter 118.

Rito loved Haruna since middle school and vice-versa, but Lala suddenly came into his life. By having a new girl in his life, he was in a complete dilemma in the choice he would have to face one day, but still considered Haruna to the his no.1 and tried on a few ocassions to confess to her, until, at the Virtual Game "Trouble Quest", he actually admitted and realized he has feelings for Lala.

I believe we have arrived at the arc where Lala has come to be facing a sentimental dilemma. Not wanting to lose her best friend and understanding her feelings for Rito, the man she loves, but at the same time not wanting to lose him either, leading her in a position where she'll be powerless to do anything, except perhaps giving to him a grand finale proof of love or encouraging her best friend to confess to the man she loves as the chances are high that Lala will lose him and sacrifice her feelings for him in exchange of Haruna and Rito's happiness. But if this comes to be accomplished, Rito and/or Haruna might be the ones feeling guilty afterwards.

Haruna was there from the beggining and seeing how Lala got close to Rito, she was shy and afraid to confess her feelings for him due to the incredible bond of friendship she was developping with Lala who has became her best friend now, so it must have been hard on her, even though she's known Rito for a far longer time. But, let's not forget, "the early bird gets the worm", and Lala took that ocassion to be close to Rito as she lived in her house and met the Yuuki family which she even got their blessings from the parents. Also, Haruna had multiple ocassions too, including the ones before Lala entered in the scene, in middle high school. It would feel ackward if Lala were to be gone just like that knowing she's considered a part of the family, even without the engagement or boyfriend-girlfriend matter. Yes, at the beggining, it was to escape the whole engagement deal (besides, after seeing all of these candidates, we all know why she ran from home, no woman would like to be marry on of these guys), but afterwards, she developped feelings towards him and even though Lala loves him, she understood her own selfishness as she didn't respect his own feelings and as she recalled the way she abruptly entered his life, so that's why she restarted everything to zero to make a new fresh start, even by knowing Rito also had feelings for someone else (chapter 47-49). Although within almost two years she's been living with him and got the "I possibly like you" confession from Trouble-Quest, that confession was a turning point for Rito as his own self became more aware of Lala, so I wouldn't consider that "small confession" to be insignificant since it was the biggest confession from Rito we've seen in the series so far. Make no mistake: the fact that you're living with someone for almost two years doesn't mean you'll win their heart or you're hugging them for yourself, otherwise Rito and Lala would had been officially known as a couple from a long time ago and/or Lala would had been pissed hearing Haruna's confession.

My point is? I believe both Lala and Haruna are exactly the best friends ever: Haruna confessed her feelings for Rito to her and Lala actually felt bad because she wasn't able to notice that before she told her and even encouraged her to confess to him, but Haruna replied that she's not ready for this yet as she said she'd rather help Lala with her love with Rito. Incredible! Last time I checked, that's a true example of friendship shared by best friends. We all know that Lala isn't the backstabbing type, so I conclude that she won't try anything to hurt her best friend, even though she doesn't want to lose Rito. Breaking heart is far from being in Lala's personnality, I wouldn't even be surprised if she actually sacrificed her feelings for Rito for Haruna's happiness. I believe it is useless to try throwing missiles into this "who's to blame and who's not, who deserved Rito or not" matter, since both of these lead female characters in Rito's life deserved rightfully to be at his side. I believe they both have proven themselves to be worthy of him: Haruna was in Rito's heart from the starting, but Lala, due to her efforts, made him realized his feelings for her and came to care a lot about her. I myself am rooting for a Lala-Rito ending, but I wouldn't be upset if Rito would go towards Haruna, as long as Rito takes a long time to think about it because at the end he will be the only one who will have to make the final choice.

To conclude this, Rito only needs to be aware of Haruna's feelings, that's the only thing left. Lala and Haruna have done their part, now it's up to him to step up. I'm also positively sure at 100% that the other female characters might step up too, but they won't stand a chance against Lala & Haruna, not even Yui.

Is anyone still reading this?

I still read this series actually. I just have not felt like commenting on the thread lately. I am pleased with the developments in the plot. Haruna confessing her feelings about Rito to Lala, Momo & Nana getting some development, the introduction of Neo Celine (I just like to call her that; I know it's not her real name :p), Run becoming friends Magical Kyoko, seeing Lala's father's orignial form, the list could keep going on and on.

In this most recent chapter, seeing Tenjouin-senpai become seen as a more relatable person by Rito and company, Rin show some emotions, and meeting Tenjouin Papa and Kujou Papa was another highlight. My guess for the next chapter is that Haruna will reappear in the story, considering how absent she has been lately.

I didn't think i'd like it but im addicted, started friday and i've caught up today

My only fear is that we get a cop out ending where Rito has to chose and it just ends in a cliff hanger

My choices for who he ends up with..in order

Lala
Yui
Haruna

Im rooting for Lala...he and Haruna would be way too cliche...

Well, it could end the Tenchi Muyo! way. :amuse (In case you aren't familiar with the reference, check this Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenchi_Muyo!) on it and, long story made short, Tenchi is said to have married all of the girls in the end of the original series [through supplementary material].)

Although ending up with everyone is kind of a cop out, I still think it is nice when everyone has a happy ending. As of right now though, I can't really say whom I would want with Rito in the end if it is only one. I like them all.

I decided on Lala immediately i wiki'd this before reading it and from what i read Haruna was the cute neighbor girl and rito was the scrawny neighbor boy (that 70's show reference)

Them ending up is to fairytale...Lala's free spirit changed him and made his life better..and made him attractive to other girls for some reason

True. A RitoxHaruna ending would be rather trite, but I think Rito was already attractive to girls before. It has been a while since I read the beginning of the series, but didn't Haruna secretly like him from before Lala even showed up? Majority of the other girls attracted to him are aliens, leaving only Yui and Saki, who just never really had much interactions with him before.

So, while I do think Lala's intervention in Rito's life has opened new opportunities for him, it is Rito's good nature that he's always had that has attracted all of the various girls in the series. Lala did not really make him a more likeable person IMO.

Him and haruna have been crushing on each other since before the series started

Saki doesn't like him...she loves Zastin

His harem is Lala,Haruna,Yui,im assuming Golden Darkness, and Run

I know Saki professes to love Zastin (and I do believe she has a crush on him), but the interactions she has with Rito sometimes makes me think that there is something there under the surface like how Yui's feelings for Rito in the beginning were not as apparent.

I would also add Lala's younger sisters to the harem too. They both definitely seem like they are developing feelings for him too.

Even though I'm a Yui fan I vote for Haruna in the poll. Once both Rito and she overcome their shyness it's their beginning. Wonder how Lala and the rest will react though...

And the manga is ROFLMAO. Period.

TheFallenAngel
February 09, 2009, 08:59 PM
My choices for who he ends up with..in order

Lala
Yui
Haruna


Same here. And I will add this...

Yui is indeed too disciplinary towards not only others, but mostly herself as she has never experience love or anything close to it before. By being surrounded by someone such as Rito, I believe his personnality sort of acted at a softnener towards hers making her able to be more communicative towards other people. Before, she didn't have any friends, but look at the present situation: she's surrounded by them and enjoys their company, despite her hard-and-strick attitude. By being softened by Rito's presence in her life, she has come to develop feeling for him and I believe the more she argues with them, the greater will be impact be when she realizes and accepts she truly loves him. Maybe the upcoming Valentine chapters will show us something like that.

Lala is the happy-go-lucky princess in the series: cheerful, enjoyable, friendly and always smiling. As the series went on, she became more attentioned, wise and emotionnal, not only towards Rito, but also towards everyone. To think that at the beggining, she was a nuisance Rito's life and now, she's considered as a part of the Yuuki family as both of their families have so much interractions between each other. One of the reasons why I think Lala is the best match for Rito is simply because they don't match at all: they have different personnalities, Lala loves him blindly, but he's confused between her and Haruna although his main feelings balance in favor of Haruna, she's open-minded, he's a big conservative and a lot of times she tried to do something good for him ended up with him being in a embarassing situation and humiliated. And still, it is just because of that up-and-down drama between these two that it makes their relationship so interesting. Two different worlds are joined by these two and despite their differences in culture and personnality, they can both live together, especially after all they've been through. I'll also add that if Lala were to leave, a great hole will be left on Earth and everyone will be affected by it, especially Rito. Lala is...

1. An important & irreplacable person for Rito.
2. A older sister for Mikan (even though she's older in wisdom)
3. A best friend for Haruna
4. A great friend for everyone at school (she really bonded with Saki, too)
5. One of the first friends that Yami had.
6. A family member for Ringo & Saiba
7. A Yuri-obsession for Risa & Mio

Etc.

I believe Lala's place on Earth is something very important as she is connected to everyone and it needs to stay that way (she is the lead female character, after all.) Like you said Xeauron, the hole left by the Yuuki parents was greatly filled by Lala's presence, as she brought that missing lively and joyful atmosphere in the house. As for the Valentine chapters, it is a great mystery for what will happen between Rito and Lala, since there hasn't been much interaction between these two lately.

Haruna is by far the best and greatest match for Rito. It has been that way even before Lala's arrival. Sweet, elegant, charming and shy, she has that grace that Yui and Lala lack. Although, in opposition, she lacks in return of the courage to express her feelings, something that Yui seems to also share. For the confession, I believe it would be best if she'd be the one doing the first step as Rito and Lala already did their share of first-step confessions between each other (even though Rito was a bit forced to tell it) and it would be good if she'd step up towards him. I guess that if Lala shared the same personnality as Haruna, perhaps the series would had been over since his type seems to be the shy one as proven many times throughout the series, especially at that time when Lala got sick causing a change in her casual behavior or when Haruna and Lala switch bodies. Haruna and Rito would fit greatly together: she loves him, he loves him back, there, end of the line! But due to that, their relationship would lack that "spice" that the Rito-Lala relationship has and therefore, if Rito would had chosen her instead of Lala at day 1, there wouldn't be any To-LOVE-ru to begin with. A thing I like and dislike at the same time about Haruna is her side that wants to see Lala and Rito happy together: yes, it is noble that she wants her best friend be happy by giving up her own feelings for the man they both love, but it wouldn't hurt at all for her to be also happy and Lala thought about that by giving her encouragement to confess her feelings to Rito. Perhaps during the Valentine chapters, something might happen with Haruna and Rito. She has been having thoses thoughts about Rito lately and let's hope it is a sign of a confession. Although confession or not, I hope something takes place in the upcoming 2-3 chapters between these two or with the Rito-Lala relationship or the one with Yui. I just hope to see something significant that would not announce the beggining of the end, but at least something that means a great meaning in the series.

To finalize this novel-sized post, I'm recalling something: we all remembered when Rito confessed to Lala during the Trouble-Quest Saga, right? Well, I've been thinking about it and in Rito's mind and heart, it is sure that Haruna occupies an important place, but I guess when he lived under the same roof with Lala and getting to know more about her for more or less than 15 months I'd say, he must have said these words to him one day...

"Haruna is the only I love, but what if...?"

I remember Peke said to Lala, "What if Rito isn't the right one? What if there would be someone else more suitable?" (here's the link: http://www.onemanga.com/to-LOVE-ru/20/16/) Perhaps Rito asked himself the same thing about Haruna, "What if there would be someone else?" Even in chapter 20, when Ren asked him if he could forget about Lala, he couldn't give back an answer.

So many sentimental mysteries that only time will reveal in due moments...

Hey guys i'm new as I have stumbled upon this very interesting topic :P

I believe that Haruna would be the right choice,as i recall atobe said that it would be to cliche?I disagree with that.An alien girl falls out of the sky and appears in the bath tub naked WOW she's definitely gonna marry Rito isn't that more cliche?How obvious could it be that Lala would definitely be the one to marry Rito in the end wow thats good now I know the story and I don't care about the rest.

Well in that POV i believe that Haruna would be the less cliched ending.Haruna and Rito have been liking each other for so long but as you know they have been voided of the knowledge that Rito likes Haruna and vice versa.Haruna has cuteness,innocence,shyness and Lala has sex appeal.

Haruna being chosen as Rito's final partner would be a major plot twist which many would be surprised with.Though this anime is ecchi I would still prefer there to be at least a slight bit of "real" romance not one made by the person with the most sex appeal.It would be more meaningful to have a romance brought by 2 people really loving each other without the fact that everytime the 2 get close to each other Rito can't stop thinking about the body.

When I read the ending of Ichigo 100% I cried my eyes out as I saw how much Manaka loved Tsukasa.Eventhough from other people's POV they were absolutely sure that Toujo would be the chosen one.This conflict made me read the manga even more and I would stay up till the wee hours of the night just to read it.

Depending on where this manga is heading I believe that there is a 70% chance of Lala being the chosen one.It feels like the ending has already been told from the fact that you said Rito confessed to Lala.But in my POV confessing means nothing because I am sure that Rito confessed his love under certain circumstances as in Lala injured or he was injured or blablabla.Rito confessed to Haruna with true feelings in his heart and that in my opinion is what really matters to me.

I'm not saying that the manga is not worth reading but I hope that Haruna would be given a higher chance of being the chosen one in the end.I will continue reading the manga until the end to find out who Rito end's up with.But honestly speaking I would be disappointed if Rito doesn't choose Haruna because the feeling's that were there which enticed us to continue reading.

I once again would like to read or watch something that would be able to make me cry because those are the one's that I will never forget even now when I think real hard and in my IMAGINATION Haruna would be the chosen one it has given me the lust,greed,need to continue so I can once again see a beautiful romance ending.

But I will also give Lala a chance to prove how much she loves Rito.But for now my vote will stay on Haruna.

I bid thee adieu...~

March 28, 2009, 06:56 AM
Is it just me, or has the mangaka been favouring Yui a lot lately? I barely remember Haruna and Lala as candidates anymore.

Also, I'm a bit over everyone being all over Rito, there's no longer any love rivalry tension, it's just a string of comedic adventures better suited for 4-koma mangas. If they introduced another guy for a bit of rivalry against anyone, or Rito actually looked like he still had problems other than Lala's inventions and random ecchi moments (like alien bachelors), it might look like the story is actually moving forward.

Eh whatever, a small rant but the comedic skits are still good to read. I'm probably just a little annoyed that it feels like nothing but comedic skits lately with little real character development or sign of a broad plot.

It's probably just that Lala and Haruna are getting a little too old for him. Why bother with those old hags when he has Lala's sisters and a plant?

I kid but for all I know this is true

TheFallenAngel
April 06, 2009, 10:33 AM
After reading chapter 143, I noticed the part where Rito sleeps with Lala, which lead me to think that Rito still hasn't matured enough in his feelings for Lala, despite his confession to her in the first Trouble Game arc. He cares about her, but Haruna still has an heavier weight in his heart than Lala (I'd say 55 vs. 45) It'd be obvious to say that if he was stuck holding Haruna's hand, he would have been the happiest man in the universe and being stuck to her for a month wouldn't have bothered him one bit. Although, even if Lala said she was kidding (which she was, obviously) I really like her attempts to make Rito feel good like when she tried to feed him at the dinner table and went they were sleeping together, that was my favorite part of the chapter, but yet again she didn't want to bother him with her feelings for him (probably for Haruna's sake.) But nonetheless, Rito did react to her shy face when she said to do it softly, but his dry attitude wasn't necessary. Oh well, that's Rito for you: clueless as usual (except if it's about Haruna, which she doesn't do much to make him notice something, which she should)

What I think is: when Rito knows Lala's around, I guess just knowing she's there, he's not really on hight alert and all, but the second she dissappear (like being kidnapped or she runs away), he goes nuts and his uneaziness kicks in by making him realizing how much he truly cares for her. So what I mean is, if Lala would leave the planet for good, be kidnapped or be sick (anything bad you can think of), Rito would only show his real colors to her. Otherwise, not much. It'd be good if he gave her a chance. I'm just saying...

Perhaps what Rito needs is to be into a situation where he would have to confess the name of the girl hunting his heart, like maybe under the effect of an invention from Lala's like an invention forcing to tell nothing but the truth. Perhaps also, he'd be under the influence of a spell or being possessed by a spirt. Here's one from my imagination: he would have to act in a play organized by the school where his role would be a man in love with two women, but at the end, he would have to choose only one and the ending would depend only from his heart about who to choose. That'd be interesting as a chapter, right?

It's a good thing that Rito has matured from "WHY DO I HAVE FEELINGS FOR LALA?!" to "Lala's someone important to me." But I think Rito needs to see the picture in a clearer way. I'm thinking that sooner or later, there will be a situation where he'll have to acknowledge for good his feelings for Lala, because right now, he's still looking for balance. I'm guessing once he does that, the real confusing will start for me, "Who do I choose? Lala or Haruna?"

Like I said, giving Lala a chance would be something he'd need to do. If it was Haruna, he'd definitely do anything she'd asked. But for Lala, Rito's still stuck-up a little, especially after all this time they've been living together. The newest chapter proved that.

I think it has more to do with his style changing... It you take a look at Ah! My Goddess, the characters look different every 5 tanks (or 3 years).

Yo, I saw the anime and after a while I decided to read the manga (mostly to see Haruna-chan get Rito.) I read it all, but the mangaka surely knows what he is doing. The manga somewhat points to Lala as the winner, but Haruna is in no way out of the game. Almost no manga has ever ended with the winning girl be the shy one (other than mangas who's main character IS the shy one.)

Hinata and Nodoka (from Mahou Sensei Negima) both have lots of chances and I'd like to see Haruna have them too. I liked the small crossover there, very very interesting.

1. Medaka is a lot different from ToLoveRu, and I don't think Medaka can be considered as ecchi by even the loosest definition.

2. Even if you lump Medaka together with TLR... Unless Medaka is able to make an impressive Vol. 01 sales when its tank comes out, I highly doubt they would want to axe a 200k+ per volume series in favor for a new series.

3. The only "threat" you might consider would be Ane-Doki by Kawashita, coming out this week... but even Kawashita would have trouble "replacing" TLR immediately, simply because of the failing track record of Hatsukoi Limited.

Three new To Love-Ru OVA episodes has been approved. So Volume 16 through Vol 18 will contain an OVA ep for each volume. So it looks like To Love-Ru manga will be safe at least till early next year. The 16th volume will ship on November 4. The 18th Vol around in May.

Here's the tanks's release date:

16: 11/04/2009
17: 02/04/2010
18: 04/02/2010

The last day to pre-order 16 will be 08/28/2009

So basicly... TLR is 100% safe until October :p And I'd say the odds favor it to continue its success.

Kind of relieved this series is ending. I read it every week in the hopes that SOMETHING would happen besides situations where Rito stuck his face in underage laps, but they never quite got there again. Oh well

I'd say I want the series to have a happy ending, but that is a dangerous thing to say in an ecchi series

it's unfortunate that the manga has to end but realistically there's no storyline to sustain the manga besides "who's panty shot we will see this chapter". If LaLa's mom lived maybe we can extend a bit of a story arc between their parents but none of the story arcs ever exceeded 3-4 chapters so it would only slow it down a little bit. The mangaka couldve throw more suitors at Lala but that gets boring too so i guess it will most likely be one of those open ended endings...

To-LOVE-Ru has a lot of potential, but obviously the mangaka has missed a lot of the potential once again, as he did with Black Cat.

I always get the feeling, with both works, that the end comes out of nowhere and things are left unresolved. With that in mind I predict something like Ranma's ending where they both want each other, but there's a million people in the middle and thus in the way. (as said above, an "open ended ending")

And what do I mean by missed potential?
Lala's Father / King hasn't appeared for ages
Yami's past still not really that well explained
Yui still seems like nothing important to the story
Years were randomly rushed through so they could do two valentines specials on valentines
Lala and Mikan are probably the two most fleshed out characters, everyone else is 2D
Bachelors stopped appearing
A whole universe to explore, only been to outer space twice now I think
Ren who?
God knows if Rito still has parents for all we're seem to made care

Lots more complaints of what could have been done better with this than one-shot ecchi. Wouldn't have minded if it was like Negima where arcs are broken with about a half volume of one shot ecchis and the arcs were important.

Despite the complaints I'm looking forward to the end. Too obviously Lala I think.

eyesotope
August 24, 2009, 07:59 AM
personally I don't mind if this series stretches out on fillers for another year, because I enjoy Kentarou's art more than most other mangakas..

when ToLoveRu first came out I was surprised that his new series wasn't another action shounen, but was happy all the same since I get to see more of his work.
if the series does end, I just hope he'll start another one soon..

those are very true but the mangaka has done some of them and those were very short arcs so if anything it will prolong it a little bit. Maybe have lala kidnapped and rito go win her back but i doubt that's happening now..

I love To-LOVE-ru just as everyone reading the comics, but the thing is, indeed, it has been on the low ranks for countless weeks and the reason why it wasn't cut down was due to its high sales (nothing sales better than sex, after all). When Double Arts was cut down, I was really depressed as this manga could have been easily among the "Musketeers" as I call them (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Dragonball).

Despite it's amazing art, the plot was a bit slow on the development and if ecchiness is overused in each chapter with no development to back it up, it will become repetitive and the fans will become bored of it unfortunately. I myself am working on a manga project of my own with my friend Hagane (http://www.heartofwildfire.com) and I'm making sure not to be too repetitive on some matters and making sure also that the plot is going somewhere, not too fast, but not too slow either.

Other than that, I loved To-LOVE-ru from day 1 and don't regret anything from reading it. These past months I've red this manga have been really good to me, also educational on the matter of creating my own story. But some things must come to an end unfortunately, but perhaps this end might be a new beggining for the series, who knows?

As for the ending, my guess is either a Lala*Rito ending or harem. These two are the antagonist couple, so it would make sense to please the worldwide fanbase since the series is being cut down earlier than expected as I am certain that Lala*Rito fans are in majority. Oherwise, a harem will be mostly welcome as an ending to please everyone.


Well, since it's the last chapter of To-LOVE-ru, I might as well put this last Poll. Cast your vote everyone!

I'm sad about it ending, I wanted it to turn in to black cat. XD

Any way it's not that great of a title for SJ, volume sales where the only thing keeping the series up in SJ seeing as it's a harem/ecchi manga in the magazine with mostly fighting and combat manga.

Now if they could move To-LOVE-Ru to lets say a different magazine like the one Fairy Tail and Negima are, it would have a much better chance at staying on longer.

Any way if the ending is opened to more stuff it's fine with me. I mean I love the manga for the sheer fact it had Black Cat cameos in it and it had a fun to read story at times. If any thing this will just open the door to something like the re-turn on the Black Cat manga. The mangaka did say at the end of Black Cat that he wanted to do a part 2 after working on different projects

I am saddened that this series is ending. I suppose once the final chapter is released I'll have more of a comment, but so far, I agree with many of the other opinions. There is still so much plot potential that just never got utilized. I think the mangaka focused too much on the ecchi to flesh out the plot.

I just had a small question that has been bugging me. Has Rito always been this buff? :blink It seems in the recent chapters that Rito has had a rather well-toned, muscular body, whereas that did not stand out to me before. Was he always like that, and if not, when did the change is body occur?

bittman
August 27, 2009, 12:14 AM
Haha, what happened to weak Rito? Yeah, he suddenly got quite buff. If he was like before, it would have been more like "Rito dives into slimy monster to save Lala and Haruna...he gets stuck in monster without getting that far".

Anyway, from the spoiler pics:
Looks like it's a completely open ending and Rito stays as an oblivious playboy to teenage women. I'll have to wait for a translation though.

So, a series with potential falls. I'm actually more annoyed with this than I am with mangas I start to read, but are pretty fail from the beginning. Bleach annoys me for the exact same reason To-LOVE-Ru annoys me. Millions of freaking ideas, implement like ten of them at best and then focus on drawing quality.

I understand pictures paint a thousand words, but To-LOVE-Ru unfortunately kept painting the same picture with different hair styles.

and since the series is ending so abruptly it's probably better to have a totally inconclusive ending imo, a proper end should just not happen without a proper arc to set it up..

Agreed.

All in all to the rush ending, it seems it's good the way it ended - harem-funny ending, yey! But seriously, Rito didn't choose the girl which I wanted he would choose for his confession, damn!
It was a good ecchi series, I mostly started reading it because of the art, hyhy <3

Well in a way, I feel that I won. But I didn't feel good in the least. I expected some nice romantic moment between Rito and the person he chose. Too abrupt of an ending. It feels like an anime ending. (This is actually the first +100 manga I've finished.)

all things considered, it wasn't a bad chapter.. but it was eclipsed by the fact that it was the last one.. and also I think that they should have added more pages to at least make it seem like a final chapter..

I didn't know that this would be the last chapter when i started to read this latest chapter. So i was surprised by the sudden end to this series. The ending felt incomplete for some reasons, they could have made it much better but they didn't. Well can't do any thing if it is the end.

So it ended. I never wrote in this 3D but i was reading this manga silently in the shadows. The manga ended just like it started, with a failing attempt to confess to Haruna. After all a nice ending, thought i feel sorry for the poor girl Haruna who couldn't win Rito's heart like she truly deserved. I've always been an Haruna fan, after all :P

PS: This manga looks to have so much in common with a very old manga: Urusei Yatsura. Some one else noticed it?

Now that is ended, the result of the poll:

Which one should Rito choose? (please explain answer)

Lala (the pink-haired princess) 50 37.31%Haruna (the innocent sweetheart) 35 26.12%Yui (the studious moralist) 29 21.64% Run (Lala's alien rival) 0 0%Saki (the prideful rich girl) 00%Yami (the taciturn assassin) 7 5.22%Mikado-sensei (the mature older woman) 5 3.73%Ren (the yaoi option) 5 3.73%Other (please specify) 3 2.24%
Lala was the most favorite character, but fans are shared between different girls. I gave up To-Love-Ru a long time ago; indecisiveness in a love triangle makes me abandon the manga or the anime and Macross Frontier is the only one I have watched till the end (hmm, I root for Sheryl btw, surprising, isn't it? :p); but I have read the last chapter. As expected, the end is not very different from other ecchi mangas. Perhaps, the reason is not to let fans of a hypothetical losing girl be sad, but in the end I am not sure there are happy people because of the absence of choice.

End. Sad because the mangakas weren't able to fully express their work. But man, MH is so much better. I've browsed through other places with people raging nonstop like they deserved better from the mangakas. I do have to say that I couldn't even foresee any sort of ending that people would generally accept anyway. Harems usually end with half of the population hating it, if not more.

I really really reaaaaaaaaaalllllllyyyyyy want to know why them ended it so abruptly. I think one of two: their popularity descended and the directives of the magazine told them to end it right away; OR they just couldn´t continue with that line of work (problems between Saki and Kentaro), after all, drawing like Yabuki Kentaro is not an easy thing to do, lest in a few days.

Leaving that aside, I must say, while the series did end abruptly without a final arc (they just used the pool arc as an excuse, "picked form the sleeve"), still the chapter made me laugh a lot. Generally speaking, I liked it much, but the fact is the las chapter ruins that feeling. I just loved Lala proposing the poligamy to Rito, and ending with the same trouble it started (but potentialized by 4), Lala´s reaction was priceless: she is happy that rito likes all the girls (and thus marrying all of them and living as a happy family).

Of course, I doubt if they continue the manga to end with Rito marrying all of the girls, but I admit that is a happy ending jeje.

I personally don´t think there is a harem manga that ends bad, since from the very start you must make the idea he will endo with the main girl so there´s no point in complaining. For that purpose, I liked the ending of Love Hina, Keitaro marrying Naru, but I always supported Motoko instead of Naru. In To-Love-Ru, I supported Kotewaga.

Found almost everywhere that's currently talking about To-LOVE-Ru's premature ending:

- There is this person called Nakamura Ine who is quite famous (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxYjKEFCDSY) on the Nico Nico website (a large Japanese online community somewhat like Youtube), who turned out to be a minor (last year in high school) and also insinuated that he has something going on with a Kashiwagi Shiho.

- Now this Shiho was the wife of Yabuki Kentaro, the author of To-Love-Ru. She met Yabuki when he was looking for assistants, seduced him and ended up becoming his wife and gave birth to a daughter.

- But she hardly did any house work, neglected her daughter, and spent most of her days in front of a computer spending time in Nico Nico etc.

- January 2009, when Yabuki was sick with flu and bedridden, she kidnapped her own daughter and disappeared, and it turned out that she left her daughter at her parents' place while she was doing this and that with Ine.

- February 2009, Yabuki 'begged' Shiho to return for the sake of their daughter, and Shiho did return to Tokyo, but few days later she dropped out once again with the girl, this time taking a notebook computer and Yabuki's credit cards. Yabuki later stopped the cards, but a large sum of money was already taken out.

- Yabuki looked for them everywhere, but to no avail. March 2009, Shiho demanded a divorce on the grounds of personality clash and a large chunk of Yabuki's assets, but when the evidence of her infidelity was discovered on her computer, she then changed her stance and demanded money in exchange for the custody right of the daughter.

- Realizing it would take over a year to settle things, Yabuki accepted her conditions and got the daughter back.

- Haruna Sairenji was based on Kashiwagi Shiho, and there is a reason why her role was reduced dramatically since volume 13, and Yui getting more prominent. And apparently Shiho has sued/demanded more money for the character of Haruna recently.

- A comment of Yabuki's while this was all happening:
[While I was working hard on a manga that was focused on taking young girls' panties off, another man was taking my wife's panties off.]

- I forgot to mention that following the dispute over Haruna's character right, Yabuki feared his daughter getting hurt by all the debacle, so he accepted Shiho's demand yet again and ended the series prematurely.

Wow, I read it all and if it's true, than the life it's more complicated than I thought; I mean, like mangaka said, he was doing manga with young girls "panties off", while another man was doing the same for his wife - life is irony. So if it's true I'm really sad for mangaka - and his ex-wife is.. nah, better is to be not bothered by her, but I have one definition for such women: bit** <even if it's cruel and not tolerable to call women like that, but.. seriously>

To those who once read this:
http://mangahut.com/manga/m=o5TN/to_love_ru/162_5/pg1

I guess one last bit of echi is not bad even a long time after the manga ended. I really miss this manga though, it was my weekly dose of echi. Now I have no weekly dose of it and I kinda miss it lol. So, was the post up there ever confirmed, the one about all the trouble the author had? I guess the ending makes sense for a harem manga (I understand killing the harem at the end can be a tad anticlimatic) but I usually am the type who prefers a clear ending with as little unresolved issues as possible (hell, I would every manga to end with the characters dying of old age so I wouldn't wonder how the rest of their lives went lol).

Try Dr. Rurru (http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55982) and Mayoi Neko Overrun! (http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56528) (Yabuki's new series) if you haven't. A monthly dose of ecchi is better than none at all ;)

Is it really a spin off? I thought it'd be a series revolving around yamichan however I see all of the characters from to love ru there, including lala. Is it a spinoff or a continuation of the past series? Also, is mayoi neko overun done with? I doubt the author is going to do 2 series lol. I also got the impression the manga was outright hentai, not echi. I did not feel confortable watching those images, adding the actual nudity kinda takes something away from the humor and adds in something.. errhh.. "nasty"(not sure what the word I am looking for is) lol.

Mayoi Neko moved to Jump SQ.19 (a seasonal manga), which means only 4 chapters going to release per year.

Actually in the volumes the nudity has always been uncensored.

From the pics I have seen.. I haven't seen anything that would make it hentai, I mean its pretty much the same To Love Ru I have always read, but now with nipples in the serialization.

Well, I have never read the volumes :p

I guess hentai is too strong a word for just added nipples but I think my overall point was understandable.

Oh, that explains it. So now we will have 1 chapter every 3 months with 120 pages or something?

That is bad news lol.... What is the point of having a manga which would release 20 pages every 3 months? Not gonna remember to read that lol.

I am curious, is there any team already scanlating the chapter?

from mangastream:


We announced we were picking up the new To Love-Ru series but after getting our hands on the raw we noticed it was a little... excessive.

We consider ourselves primarily a Shounen group, and we're aiming to add more Seinen themed manga (we have Claymore and are adding Genshiken 2 and possibly Vinland Saga). Our expectations for TLR (that it would be censored like it was in WSJ) were off.

Don't want to sound like a stick in the mud but it's not really our style to scanlate a borderline h-manga. There are really good groups who specialize in this genre so we'll leave it to them.

I would say that understandable, To-Love-Ru has turned into a kind of soft hentai now. Not that I have big problems with that (actually it just adds nipples if I'm not mistaken :cookiestare ) but there are a lot of people who don't like this develeopment and will hesitate to scanlate/read it. Redhawk could do it but they are more into ecchi so I'm not sure if there's a group scanlating it right now.
