What They Say
Haruhiko embarks on a class trip to Hawaii with all the regulars of the series - Yuka, his buddies, and Yukanaria... and a new character: Haruhiko's former classmate Mana Kimura. Mana share's Haruhiko's love for fixing up gadgets, and also has a secret crush on him! What happens when Haruhiko gets involved with demons and magical weapons right in front of his friends...?

The Review
Sigh, if it wasn't for the fact that Haruhiko will lose his soul if he gives into Eukanaria's sexual advances, I would probably really dislike this guy. What with a smoking hot F-cup wielding demon girl fawning over him all the time and all. But the fact that Eukanaria wants to rip his soul out and replace it with that of her lover, keeps me cheering for Haruhiko's self inflicted chastity. Just to make his life more difficult, Eukanaria has taken to reading porn magazines to learn what men like in her quest to trick Haruhiko into sleeping with her. Greeting him at the door wearing only an apron probably would have crumbled any other man's self control, sadly I too fall into that category.

Fourth volumes are where I often find romantic comedies becoming stale and predictable. Thankfully, this volume of Enchanter keeps the story fresh by adding a schoolmate with a huge crush on Haruhiko. Mana is in a different class than Haruhiko, but she has been in love with him for years. A good amount of comedy stems from Mana's character as she tries to make advances on Haruhiko while her friends push her on. Mana loves to fix things just like Haruhiko, but when she learns he likes the well-endowed Yuka, Mana begins to fixate on the large breasts of other women.

I love this series, and with all the panty shots I'm reminded a lot of the Agent Aika anime. The ecchi factor in this particular volume of Enchanter kicks into overdrive when Haruhiko's class goes to Hawaii for their school trip (resulting in multiple full-page pictures of Eukanaria). Mana looks at this trip as an opportunity to get closer to Haruhiko, and Haruhiko hopes to spend time with a bikini clad Yuka, and Eukanaria looks forward to her first trip to the beach. In the end, Eukanaria gets exactly what she wants (oh, so much bikini bounciness). Haruhiko doesn't even get to see Yuka. Mana does get to spend time with Haruhiko, but then a demon shows up demanding Mana make a contract with her so he can make her an Enchanter. Mana wants nothing to do with the pervy demon, so Haruhiko tries his best to protect her. Will Haruhiko be able to defeat a full-fledged demon? Will Eukanaria be of any help to Haruhiko? Will Haruhiko have to go the whole trip without ever seeing Yuka in a bikini? Oh, did I mention Eukanaria can steal Haruhiko's soul while he's getting it on with any girl and not just her?

Thank you DMP for more Enchanter!
