One day, a young girl named Eto Hachibe finds herself pursued by a strange woman in a kimono who asks her to become her "Sobame" (basically, a traditional concubine). Eto is reluctant at first; but eventually, she finds herself swept off her feet by this woman, who turns out to be the queen of a small European nation.

Eto then meets the rest of the sobames, and a series of [[HilarityEnsues wacky hijinks ensue]].

''Iono the Fanatics'' is a short, two-volume GirlsLove manga by MiyabiFujieda, who is also known for ''Manga/TheMikosWordsAndTheWitchesIncantations''. The author made clear that he was going for a lighthearted yuri romp with this story, and it very much is. The first volume has been published by Infinity Studios, but the second volume is currently in limbo (since Infinity Studios doesn't have an active website anymore, however, it can be assumed volume 2 will never see daylight, [[{{Scanlation}} no official, that is]]).

!!''Iono the Fanatics'' contains examples of:
* BadassInANiceSuit: Fletch and the rest of Iono's bodyguards.
* BlackComedyRape: Iono [[spoiler:with Eto, after Vizen kicks Kurausoras out of the building. Yes, Eto agreed first ("Please, have your way with me"), but she desperately tries to refuse after knowing that Vizen ''was in their room all the time''. That doesn't stop Iono, and the next page we're treated to an image of Iono sleeping soundly in her bed and Eto sniffing besides her]].
** Actually, a lot of things with Iono. Having the ability to see what a person "really wants" is often used to HandWave pesky issues like consent, and can be a serious source of {{squick}} without a heavy dose of MST3KMantra on hand.
* BodyguardCrush: Fletch and Arata, reciprocated.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Iono, very much so. The author stated in the notes for volume 1 that he wanted to make sure people realized she was actually cool and collected when needed, but he worries it didn't quite come across...
* ButNotTooForeign: Iono's father was European while her mother was Japanese.
* {{Cameo}}: If you look at closely at the part where Iono first meets Eto and accidentally burns her hand, you can see Seriho from ''{{Ame-iro Kouchakan Kandan}}''.
* CastFullOfGay: Ayup. Ruiko is debatable as she was pressured into trying out for Iono's harem and doesn't really want to, but otherwise it's pretty clear. When Eto tries to tell Iono she's straight way back in chapter one, Iono doesn't believe it for a minute, and we're not supposed to either, even though we don't know about her intuition by that point.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Kass is both the Unlucky and Victorious variations at once; she's a big part of the harem, but feels that Iono takes her for granted and pays too much attention to other women.
* ChivalrousPervert: Guess.
* CostumePorn
* DirtyOldWoman: Iono, though not old by any stretch of the imagination, actually calls herself a "skirt chaser".
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: A non-sexual example is Iono's hollyhock crest, which is pretty clearly a stylized version of the Tokugawa Shogunate's symbol.
* {{Dojikko}}: Pretty much Eto's defining character trait, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] to hell and back.
* EarCleaning: Briefly mentioned as possibly Eto's "job".
* EmotionlessGirl: Aru is fairly inexpressive.
* EthicalSlut: Iono. She will let ''nothing'' get between her and her ladies but cares about each one equally and immensely.
* ForHappiness: Early on, Aru references Iono's wish to "rid the world of sadness."
* {{Gayngst}}: Not only averted, but blown up sky-high. All the ladies seem to be perfectly happy with their feelings for other women.
* TheGlomp: Iono uses this frequently on Eto.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Iono pretty much ignores her country, spending all her time collecting ''sobame''s. It's implied that this isn't working out so well, even though the diplomats love her.
* HaremSeeker
* HaremSeries
* HasTwoMommies: Fletch and Arata have a child together at the end.
* HitmanWithAHeart: Kurausoras serves as a WorthyOpponent in the first two volumes and [[spoiler:she eventually joins Iono's team at the end]].
* HomosexualReproduction: Fletch and Arata's ''biological'' child, born at the end thanks to "[[{{Handwave}} ground breaking SCIENCE]]".
* HotSpringsEpisode: Along with GodivaHair.
* ImprobablyFemaleCast: Only two men appear prominently in the cast, and that's only in one scene. It's implied that Iono's homeland (or at least her palace) has so many sobames that the men have no women to choose from, and so the economy is collapsing. There's also [[spoiler:Senou Tomo]], [[UnsettlingGenderReveal who turns out]] to be a {{Crossdresser}}.
---> Now ''that's'' something Her Majesty has never seen before!
* TheJailbaitWait: Ar is a sobame but not actually part of the harem because she's so young. Iono also [[spoiler:pledged to wait until Yama was legal to add her to the harem]].
* KimonoIsTraditional
* KingIncognito: Iono likes to run around looking for girls on her own, which naturally drives her staff and bodyguards nuts.
** Their concerns are pretty valid when you realize she attracts political assassins.
* KissingDiscretionShot
* ALadyOnEachArm: Iono, in Chapter 00.
* LapPillow: Often seen between Iono and Eto.
* LittleMissBadass: Aru.
* LittleMissSnarker: Ar. "Pedophilia is a crime, you know..."
* {{Lolicon}}: Subverted, as Iono specifically rejected one girl due to her age and won't do anything with Aru until she's of age. Iono is many things, but a lolicon is not one of them.
* LovableSexManiac: Iono is a RareFemaleExample who has multiple lovers in unlimited numbers, but it's always portrayed positively.
** One wonders where she finds the time, since the number of her Sobames runs in the ''thousands''--and they are prone to become restless when she doesn't give them enough attention. Some end up having relationships with each other, but later in the manga it's implied that her absence has been causing serious problems.
* MeaningfulName: Eto, the skeptical and hesitant new recruit. A Japanese character named "Eto" is like an American character named "Um".
* {{Meganekko}}: The author seems to [[AuthorAppeal have a thing for meganekko]], considering how many appear.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Iono, combined with SayItWithHearts.
* NoExportForYou: Infinity Studios licensed and released the first volume of the manga. Now that they've gone out of business, it's safe to assume the second one will never be seen in the U.S.
* Theatre/OedipusRex: A rare female version, since Iono's love of black hair was because of her mother.
* OfficeLady: Ouie Ruiko, whose name is actually an IncrediblyLamePun (say it out loud in Japanese and it's "OL-ko", or "office lady girl").
* PaintingTheMedium: The front and back of volume 1 shows a scene of Iono trying to seduce Eto (again) and Kyas trying to break them up, so Iono goes over to the ''back'' cover.
* PunnyName: Several, along with several references to classic Japanese show ''MitoKomon''.
* PsychoLesbian: Kurau Sorasu and Yama-Novera Varantianoz [[spoiler: though both go through a HeelFaceTurn after DefeatMeansFriendship.]]
** Although given the light-hearted nature of the series, neither of them is ''that'' psycho - and certainly not because they're lesbians.
* {{Ruritania}}: Iono's homeland. It's implied that the economy is in danger of collapsing because of the sheer number of Iono's sobames.
* SarcasmMode: Iono is 'just an average queen, like one you can find anywhere'.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: Eto used to be one, but the object of her affections lost interest in her, and Eto's been afraid of romance ever since. Until Iono comes along, that is... An {{omake}} chapter also imagines the story as a schoolgirl romance before the idea is shot down by the editor.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Kass/Kyas, Fletch/Frechet, Ar/Aru, and the divide over whether to use the original title (''Iono-sama Fanatics'', which the English manga used and which makes more sense) or the title in English on the cover (although ''Iono the fanatics'' is more Engrish than anything).
* TheStoic: Aru.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Aru.
* TokenMiniMoe: Aru again!
* {{Tsundere}}: Kyas, most obviously.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Inverted. Iono not only isn't uncomfortable with [[spoiler: Tomo Sonoo]] when she finds out the cute girl she was crushing on is a he, she's actually impressed.
--> '''Iono''':Who would have thought even a dedicated skirt chaser like me could have been fooled.
* UnusualEuphemism: When Eto is looking for a job she can do as a sobame, Iono suggests that she "read fairy tales" to her at bedtime... by which, of course, she means something else entirely.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The country Iono is from.
* WomanScorned: Yama felt she was jilted by Iono, when the true reason is a bit more complicated... [[spoiler:Iono promised Yama's father that she wouldn't take Yama until she was at least 20.]]
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: Iono is apparently like this in her official post... but it's more of an InformedAbility since we only once see her in that capacity.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Iono not only loves black-haired girls, but she's actually compared to a YamatoNadeshiko at one point by two officials. If only they knew...
* YuriGenre: You need to ask? Amazingly enough, it never actually gets explicit, and if it is we cut away before we see anything.
