Alternative title:
Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to (Japanese)
The Comic Artist and Assistants
マンガ家さんとアシスタントさんと (Japanese)
Themes: ecchi, harem
Objectionable content: Significant
Plot Summary: With beautiful assistant Sahoto Ashisu aside, mangaka (and cherry boy) Yūki Aito can hardly concentrate on his works, forcing his managing editior Mihari Otosuna to push him (physically) meeting the deadline. With new busty but ditsy Rinna Fuwa and skilled but money-loving Sena Kuroi joining the assistant pool, Yūki's life is more like a harem than a manga studio.
