Manga / Iron Virgin Jun

Go To

Tetsu No Otome (Iron Virgin Jun) is a 1983 manga by Go Nagai (Devilman, Cutey Honey). It was later adapted into a one-shot anime OVA.


  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • Ryo Asuka in this continuity. In his original incarnation Devilman, Devilman Lady, and Violence Jack, he is literally Satan himself. In this, he wants to avenge his grandfather who was torn by Jun's grandmother. Realizing her kind heart, he warns her of her mother sending other men after her.
    • Maki is much more meek and gentle (and looks more feminine) in the OVA than in the manga.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Jun is blonde in the manga. In the anime she has naturally black hair, but wears a blonde wig in the first part.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Jun is strong and muscular, but in a way that only makes her look more beautiful. Oonami is moved to tears when he gets a proper look at her naked body, telling her she's like the goddess Athena.
  • Animal Motifs: When Mrs. Asuka comes back from her travels to quash Jun's rebellion, the author metaphorically represents her arrival as a terrible giant reptile stomping into the mansion.
  • Arranged Marriage: The OVA begins with Jun fleeing her family's compound when she discovers she's been placed into one of these — and she has to fight everyone her mother sends to bring her back.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Jun is a very sweet and friendly girl towards anyone who treats her with respect, but those who try to either coerce her or hurt Oonami are in for a world of pain.
  • Bifauxnen: Jun's aunt Maki looks more like an elegant man when first introduced, hence Oonami's initial confusion.
  • Breast Attack: Jun grabs her fearsome mother by the breasts and uses them to swing her around hammer-throw style, causing much pain in the process.
  • Chainmail Bikini: Jun is depicted on the cover wearing a helmet, a breastplate with boob definition that doesn't cover most of the abdomen, and nothing else besides a thong. Nowhere in the manga does she actually wear this outfit.
  • Covers Always Lie: Sorry if the cover got your hopes up, but Jun does not actually wear sexy armor or fight with a sword and shield.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After a series of difficult struggles, Jun and Oonami become a couple and decide to face their future together.
  • Fanservice: Jun is quite easy on the eyes.
  • Fan Disservice: Mrs. Asuka, who looks like a rampaging gorilla, strips down to her underwear to engage Jun in physical combat. Merciful God in Heaven, why?!
  • Jabba Table Manners: Mrs. Asuka. Good grief, woman. Chew your food!
  • Henpecked Husband: Mr. Asuka, meek little man that he is, can't do much to directly stand up to his enormous wife's tyranny over their daughter. Nevertheless, he manages to help Jun by shooting some arrows in his wife's rump at an opportune moment, and by subsequently showing up in disguise to rescue Jun from Maki's trap.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: In the manga, Jun has grown up having servants to help her with even the most private functions of her daily life, so she doesn't understand what Oonami's so embarassed about when she asks him to help her use the toilet while she's chained to the bed, and later to help her shower.
  • Porn with Plot: Only in the Manga. Averted in the Anime, despite some Black Comedy with Jun's mother sending a Quirky Miniboss Squad to deflower her by force.
  • Potty Emergency: After Oonami feeds Jun and plays guitar for her while she's chained to the bed, she announces that she's got to pee. Oonami finds that provisions have been made for this, in the form of a toilet on wheels and a special unfastening mechanism in Jun's sweatpants, but since he agonizes over the problem of how to do it without looking at her privates, Jun has to beg him to hurry before she can't hold it any more. It works out just in the nick of time.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Jun despises any number of selfish or entitled men who try to take her by force, no matter how strong or how rich they are. In stark contrast, she falls in love with Oonami because he's a gentle and loyal partner who would do anything for the sake of her happiness.
  • Their First Time: Jun and Oonami finally admit their feelings for each other and consummate in the final chapter.
  • Title Drop: When Jun breaks out of her chains and lifts Mouta Nandou over her head—declaring that all the training she did was to protect her virginity from despicable cowards like him—Oonami exclaims that she’s an iron virgin.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Jun is hot, even though her mother Mrs. Asuka is hideous; some scenes in the OVA indicate that Mrs. Asuka used to be more attractive, but in the main story she's more akin to an Ogre or an Oni. Makes you wonder if Jun was actually adopted instead.
