Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko by SAGARA Sou & Okomeken
Yokodera is just like every teenage boy: perversion is in his nature. He can’t help but look up girls' skirts and fantasize about them. However, in his case, every time he does something perverted, it somehow gets turned around and misunderstood as something positive for the community. Sick of being so perverted, he tries to shake free of it by going to a special part of town. On top of a hill, away from the town and at the foot of a large tree, there is a wooden sculpture of a beckoning cat that is said to have special powers. Instead of bringing a wish to the user like a typical beckoning cat, it takes something from the user, and, in Yokodera’s case, his perversion. Still doubtful, he uses the beckoning cat thinking that it couldn’t hurt to try, but, little does he know, his life is about to make a turn to the unexpected. [vyc]
Adapted from a novel, Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko or "The Pervert Prince and the Cat Who Won't Smile" is still a relatively new series with only a few manga chapters available... yet has the making of being a solid series already.
The story revolves around Yokodera, a hardworking student that always goes the extra mile. He mops the school floors, gardens and is always seen as a model student. However, unbeknown to everyone else, he really just does these things so that he can look up girls skits - he is the ultimate pervert. Tired of having every one think that he is perfect, one night he goes to a place where lies a cat statue that is said to be able to rid one of unwanted traits. While there, he comes across one of his classmates, *name*. Shes there because she is completely void of being able to hide her emotions and can't help but to blurt out whatever is on her mind. They end up praying to the cat statue and what happens... the next day their personalities are switched and pure comedy ensues!
The extreme personalities and the complete 180 that the characters take is hilarious and is what makes me want to read more. A boy who constantly has perverted thoughts not being able to hold them in anymore = hilarious. Yea, some of you may think its sort of silly or stupid, but a little sophomoric humor every once in a while won't hurt anyone. Though, to be honest, I am not too sure how long this concept can go on and seem fresh. But, I will pleasantly go along with that ride, as long as it stays fresh and funny. :)
