This week for Shoujo Saturday I’m starting off with an oddball series. It’s been completed, although translations aren’t done. It’s Okasu Bekasu!! Junketsu Tokka! by Honda Arima!
Plot Synopsis: In the year 2020, it was found out that a harmful virus had infected the human race, killing them slowly and bringing them towards a dark future. But with the technology they had in hand, in an attempt to save the civilized race, the people chose to go through with “Beast Transformation.” Knowing that other than humans, all animals were safe from the virus, the humans made the decision to inject the genes of animals into themselves to become part-human, part-animal. In the end, the idea was “Either you do beast-transformation or die.” With the race known as Homo Sapiens gone, by the year 2035, being a beast-human was normal.
In this new world, one strange boy, Kokuryuu Kazuto, 14 years old, is the worst runner and least athletic, but somehow also the most popular with the opposite sex, with girls giving him hugs and boxed lunches, much to his chagrin.
Plot: I read the first chapter and I found the plot hook, the reason behind why Kazuto is so weak, quite appealing. Needless to say I found the premise kind of cool, although I don’t usually go for the Harem series.
Art: The art is great, but again isn’t my typical fare.
Overall: If you can get over the fanservice and harem aspects the series is kind of cool.
For those who like: Animal People, Romance Comedies, Romance, Harems.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
