Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks? (Tsujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de 2-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki desu ka?) is a fantasy Light Novel written by Dachima Inaka and illustrated by Pochi (of The Elder Sister-like One fame), which began serialization in the Fantasy Bunko since 2017. Although at the moment there are several more volumes released, this series has earned a bit of huge hype due to a deliberately provocative plot and a parody of the current incestuous fashion in light novels. Ultimately, this led to the publishing house being able to sell the first volumes in excess of 100,000 copies within a few months and win the Fantasia Grand Prize.

The series recieved a web manga adaptation in Young Ace Up in late 2017. It is licensed in North American by Yen Press and an Animated Adaptation has been green-lit.


This work contains examples of:

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Mamako plays this trope Up to Eleven, openly discussing her prospects with the Love Interest with them, or loudly discussing the need to buy him underwear in the middle of a busy street. And this is not to mention constant ambiguous situations.
  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: Mamako, something that's frequently lampshaded. Despite being the mother of a teenager, she doesn't look any older than Chiyo, who has the appearance of an elder sister to an even younger teenager.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Masato is a gender-inverted version. More directly, there’s Vise.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Mamako, whose care for her own teenage son comes to a rather absurd and frightening degree. Aside from that, she has a comical lack of knowledge about anything unrelated to being a housewife.

  • Incest Subtext: The series parodies this kind of Fanservice. Masato clearly and repeatedly makes it clear how he is annoyed by ambiguous moments with his mother, yet we can repeatedly see that he finds her sexually attractive. On the other hand, Mamako constantly frightens her son with her indiscreet behavior and unintentionally vulgar jokes. This is even recognized by Yen Press, calling this series as a "momcom roleplaying adventure" in its marketing materials.
  • Long Title: The official English title is twelve words long!
  • Momma's Boy: It seems that Mamako still perceives her son as if he is still 10 years old. Masato is not thrilled with this.
  • Questioning Title?: Sounds like a joke at first, which is fitting for a parody, but by the end of the first volume it seems it was actually a serious question for the main character, even excluding the Incest Subtext.
  • Running Gag: At least every dialogue between Mamako and her son will contain jokes about the worldview of the housewife and the hysteria of Masato.
  • Pervert Dad: Gender inverted and played for laughs. Mamako clearly does not see her son in a romantic light, but her jokes about panties and the desire to look sexually attractive to her son are rather strange and frightening.
  • Stacy's Mom: This is the reason why Masato is extremely shy about his mother and is afraid of being next to her.
  • Stealth Parody: On overabundance of Brother–Sister Incest and Little Sister Heroines in particular among light novels. In particular, the author intentionally uses cliched phrases from such stories like "we are family, so it's normal" or "the connection between us as a mother and a child".
  • Story-Breaker Power: As noted in the latter part of the title, Mamako receives two ridiculously powerful swords right at the beginning of the game. Each sword, when swung, releases a massive attack that hits all enemies.
  • Unwanted Harem: Masato's party consists of a Jerkass sorceress, his own extremely caring mother and an overly executive little girl.
