This time: Lolicon Saga, by Haru Wamusato
Let’s get this over with.
Lolicon Saga (URRRGHHH) takes place in Dojigiri City, also known as the Holy City of Loli (URRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH). Accordingly, every female who lives in Dojigiri City looks like a child. The men do not, instead carrying licensed ID cards around identifying them as a “good lolicon” who can be trusted. The “bad lolicon” are hunted down by the “Dojimori”, which is basically some sort of police squad of little girls made to hunt down pedophiles. I COULDN’T MAKE THIS UP IF I TRIED.
Komuro, the protagonist, falls into the grand cliche of wanting to be the very best Dojimori but being held back by her ridiculous ineptitude. But it’s okay because she has tons of natural talent, or something like that. I honestly wasn’t paying much attention; I just wanted to get through this horrifying stuff as quickly as possible. At any rate, because she’s the protagonist, she gets thrust into danger and plot when Princess Nonomi arrives in town after living abroad. Apparently Nonomi is just so cute that her very presence drives creeps to act even creepier. Komuro takes it upon herself to protect the princess, and there’s also some stupid anime lesbian stuff thrown in because OF COURSE THERE IS.
Verdict: k i l l m e…
This is a deliberate comedy set-up, but it still ranks among the worst things I’ve had to deal with on Random Manga Theatre. I don’t understand why this exists. It shouldn’t exist. Why does the Random Button give me this shit? I can only hope that my positive karma is building and that soon I’ll roll an actually good manga…
