Futari Ecchi

It is not sex that gives the pleasure, but the lover   —-   Marge Piercy

PLOT: –

Futari Ecchi is undoubtedly the most informative and educating manga out there. However the information provided is on ‘sex’. The story revolves around the sexual life of a married couple. Lives of their friends, co-workers, family members and neighbors are also covered time to time.

Because of the extra focus on sexual aspects, this manga gets blames like ‘a series that only revolves around the bed’, ‘series with zero plot development’ etc. These acquisitions are quite wrong.

Despite being quite slow, there is quite decent plot development in this series. And we also see that the sexual aspect of life is just not only about ‘the main thing’ but the things like problems and hindrances in sex life, marriage v/s single relationships, multiple sex partners, pregnancy etc are also important part of a sex life.

We also see other aspects for a married life time to time in this manga.

CHARACTERS: –

The cast of this series is nothing short of fabulous. You’ll find good for nothing bastards who got lucky and landed hot partners, honest and caring wives, sexually depressed middle age people, teens whoring around, and office ladies trying their best to ruin the relationship of others. The lead couple is great and adorable. Their sync and progress as a couple is something great to see.

ART: –

The overall art of this magna is really good. The character sketches are beautiful but the main this is the ‘main thing’.

The sex scenes are drawn really magnificently. And the inclusion of information panels during the scenes makes it great. The reader gets the feeling that he’s reading a educating manga and not a plain borderline hentai with lots of sex.

CONTENT: –

Futari Ecchi is full of facts, figures, information, stats and tips regarding sexual stuff. Since this series has been running over a decade, many of these stats are outdated but it still goes to show the fact that lot of effort has been put in this series and this is a manual not a perverted series.

TARGET AUDIENCE: –

There’s a misconception about this series that it is for fans of ecchi and perverted stuff. I believe every manga fan that is 18 and above, should read this series.

TIPS: –

  • Don’t read it in front of others (lol)
  • Don’t look at the scenes only, pay the attention to the stats as well. 😛
