Sundome, the Greatest Manga with the Greatest Disappointing Ending

I FINALLY got my hands on the last volume of Sundome, a manga series by Kazuto Okada, and I can’t help but say I’m a little disappointed with the ending. Sundome is a great series, probably my favorite manga series (that I’ve read), so I want to talk a little about it because apparently this particular manga is under the radar.

Now first off this manga series is rated for Mature readers because it has nudity and sexually explicit scenes. However, most of the story is comedy.

I’m not a very good reviewer, I’ve never pretended to be, the most I can ever really do is complain about the stuff I didn’t like in excruciating detail, and the stuff I do like I pretty much tell people “It’s my favorite thing ever at the moment! Watch/play/listen/read now bitch!” so bare me with as I try to explain why I like the manga, instead of telling you what happens in it, because I hate spoilers.

The reason I like this story is because it takes explicit sexual humor and wraps it in a love story that actually makes you care about the characters and what happens to them. And when I say ‘explicit sexual humor’, I mean that the main characters take sexual fetishism to a whole new level, but it’s written so well that it makes sense and doesn’t piss me off.

I’m a weird guy. I’m just gonna put that out there (like you didn’t already know) but the best way to describe me would probably be a prudish pervert. I love jerking-off. I love cartoon titties and futanari porn. Given the opportunity I’ll pretty much do anything to and for a woman if it gets her off. What I don’t like is when I feel like people only think that since I say and do these things, that it is the ONLY thing I’m about. I’m a deep guy. Seriously.

It’s like my classic argument about porn with a story and a story with porn in it. I’m watching porn because I have 45 minutes and I want to bust a huge nut, not watch an hour and half long bullshit Pirates of the Caribbean knock-off with hard-core sex in it. I want handjobs and cumming on tits, no fucking talking! Stop talking! You can’t act and your making my tiny penis sad! STOP IT!

The same thing goes with movies with sex scenes, or childish sexual humor. Tits ain’t that hard to see now, now that we all have the internet in our homes, on our phones, or in the library, I don’t need to see a shitty-ass movie where the only thing it has going for it is 5 seconds of half-nipple.

This is why I hate most anime, that bullshit ‘fan-service’ crap where all the chicks want to fuck the main guy but they never do. It’s a cock tease. Cock teasing is only good when you are finally allowed to cum after a good hour. It’s damn good. Otherwise I’m blue-balled and just fucking mad.

Which brings me back to Sundome. Sundome teases my dick and let’s me nut, plain and simple. It has a lot of weird shit going on, sexually, but it’s funny and genuinely heart warming. My only problem is that I feel the ending was a cop-out. The whole time you are led to believe that something specific is going to happen, and even though you don’t want that thing to happen, it would have made for the better ending and still would have shocked the shit out of me that he actually had the balls to do it. But it doesn’t happen and it just left me feeling all meh inside. Also I may have the ending entirely wrong, because like most of this shit, the ending is vague and not really explained, which I’ve been told is because I’m a baka giajin, but why the fuck do these people like vague endings? I don’t fucking get it.

Anyway you probably just found out way more about me than you wanted to know and yeah totally read Sundome. I’d prefer it if you bought them, but come the fuck on, there are plenty of free scans of it online, so here’s the first chapter, just don’t read this shit at work or in front of any children :3

    Classy, classy picture there, mate. Where can I get a mug like that?

    I’ve read up to volume 5 of Sundome and I am dying to find the rest. I can’t find it in any stores, it is licensed in America yet none of the stores I’ve visited have it, or ever heard of it. With the rating it has, they won’t order it for me… gah, I want to know what’s wrong with Kurumi-chan, she is just about as messed up as Misaki-chan from NHK, although she is more messed up physically with the blood and all, although despite my liking of Kurumi, I like Misaki more… I recommend NHK to you.

      I freakin’ loved NHK! I even read the novel and watched the anime!

      And the mug is from a friend who lives in Japan, it’s a Training with Hinako mug :3

        Yeah, I’ve seen all three of the Hinako shows, Ofuro was nice :3

        I’ve read the manga and seen the anime, I’ve yet to read the novels. The manga is quite different than the anime. If you haven’t read that, I recommend it. Misaki is still as loveable as always, although a bit more messed up.

        Oh, I love this blogs tag! Much respect!

    Holy shit. I just finished it. This story is amazing. I got the first Vol as a present and just recently discovered the rest of it online. The ending is aweful. I don’t really think Kurumi is really that fucked up. Just a kid who is on her own, and is discovering power play. I don’t wanna give away too much either, but it was all great up till the last several pages. The ocean flower scene nearly made me cry.
