Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
This shonen manga mixes familiar elements: a high school boy, a buxom young woman and an alien invasion. The twist is that the alien invaders are hot girls. They appear to be docile, polite, complacent new arrivals to Earth, but there are hints to a darker side of their society (such as a mention of slavery). Typical teenager Takeya gets involved when he rescues an invader from a traffic accident. At first, he's unaware that this improbably proportioned girl is a space alien, but when she changes into a Star Trek-meets-bondage type of uniform in the blink of an eye, he realizes he's been duped. Typical complications ensue when Takeya brings the alien home and must deal with explaining the naked girl in his bed to his housemates and classmates. Ren, as she's called, also wants to serve Takaya in every way, given that she was a slave in her society. Many embarrassing and titillating situations arise, as Takaya improbably refuses to do what any teenage boy in his right mind would do in a heartbeat. Despite the completely unoriginal story, manga collective Peach-Pit's detailed and lush art makes this work bearable. Fans of the "regular boy must live with incredibly hot alien who is almost always naked" genre will get just what they expect here. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

This series is truly worth the money. I saw the anime before I knew the manga was out. So I didn't hesitate to buy the book.

This is definitely not for young audiences though I'm sure you've all figured this out by looking at the cover. It's full of big boobs, sexual inferences, and partial nudity. Even so, this is a fun comedy styled manga that can be appreciated by both male and female readers. The character's are over the top and the art style is quite cute. It's the typical story we've seen in many manga where a beautiful girl ends up living with the main character boy knowing little to nothing about the world around her just as many fans of this genre have seen in the popular Chobits.

DearS is a wonderful manga seirse. Funy and fun. you will truly enjoy this book. The only downside is all the sicrets ans mistery. If I could give it four and a half stars I would but four will have to do. If you love manga you will love this.
