Who doesn’t love a good harem manga every now and then? Tying the Knot with an Amagami Sister Vol. 1 sets up the most unlikely of scenarios, forcing the main character into quite the predicament. All for our sake, of course.
Uryu Kamihate is on his way to his new foster home, which shouldn’t have been much to report. Only…it’s not so much a foster situation as an arranged marriage. Uryu is expected to choose one of the three daughters to become his bride.
The Amagami sisters are lively and quirky, all with their own personalities and temperaments for Uryu to work around. How will he ever choose which sister to marry?
I’m being rhetorical here. There’s really only one choice for Uryu. The writer makes it clear from the start which sister is the most likely candidate. The older sister isn’t a good fit (and I feel like her personality has the least focus because of this), and the youngest one is too young!
Seriously, the age of the youngest sister is enough to make me uncomfortable. I get that arranged marriages can happen young, but that’s not the only thing worth discussing here. After all, the three girls are courting Uryu, which means they all get put in sexual situations. Think fan service.
On the bright side, Uryu seems to be a good guy. He wants to date the girls and get to know them before making his choice. So he gets bonus points for that.
Tying the Knot with an Amagami Sister Vol. 1 is an entertaining series perfect for fans who love this genre.
