Delighted fans exclaim that the latest chapter of the To Love-Ru manga is bordering on ero-manga territory, with tentacles and elementary school loli breasts aplenty, and that is just the censored version.
What is perhaps most notable about these images, knowing as we do all about the upgrades/uncensoring from serialised manga to compilation edition, is how readily apparent it is just where things are about to get steamed up.
I’m sure I needn’t point out to you those tantalising white spaces. Each of those will sell ten thousand copies of the manga proper, according to my completely speculative arithmetic.
In particular, the revelations about just how daring the manga has actually been seem to be particularly relevant.
The positive direction is doubtless a relief to fans after the disappointment with the DVD and the production quality of later episodes of the anime; perhaps the slightly different demographic the two products are targeting leaves some fans unsatisfied, but whatever the case, it looks as if satisfaction is forthcoming with the compiled ero-manga version.
