Hyoukyuuhime - Tokiwagi Kantoku no Kajou na Aijou Demographics:
7 Volumes (Complete)Manga Details: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
The creepy stalker Tokiwagi Taimatsu has always been obsessed with athletic girls. He finds them very attractive while they're practicing their sports, but he also feels an intense need to support and guide them. However, he has no athletic talent of his own. Now he is attending an all-boys' high school, and his focus has turned to the neighboring all-girls' school.
His latest target is Soubi Kureha, the lovely captain of her high school's ice hockey club. She is very dedicated to her sport, and aims to take on the world. Tokiwagi has studied and stalked enough that he feels certain he could help her toward her goal, if he were allowed to supervise the team. At first, the girls reject him completely. When he proves that he might actually be able to help, though, it looks like his dream of fighting alongside Kureha's hockey team might come true!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Eat-Man: The Main Dish, seems to be a sequel of Eat Man. It's an episodic story with a mysterious, super-competent lead who goes from place to place solving problems. The first few stories were pretty interesting, so it was my favorite of the week. Hyoukyuuhime - Tokiwagi Kantoku no Kajou na Aijou could be interesting for fans of ice hockey, though I found the stalker guy a little hard to take. Fujiwara Hakkushaku no Junan had an interesting idea of making the cat the viewpoint character! I felt sorry for the little guy, he's only trying to help his humans.
My opinion: Eat-Man - The Main Dish
- If you liked the original Eat-Man series or enjoy action and sci-fi, then you should read this.Fujiwara Hakushaku no Junan
- However, if you're more in the mood for a slice of life comedy about a girl with a sister comlex, (although usually manga have a brother complex), then you should take a look at this instead.Hyoukyuuhime - Tokiwagi Kantoku no Kajou na Aijou
- If you're a fan of hockey or sports in general and don't mind reading about a stalker main character, then you may take a liking to this...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
