Go To

A manga series by Masakazu Ooi. The series follows Kyouko Okita, a buxom housewife who's just recently moved into a new neighborhood with her husband. There she tries to adjust to her new neighborhood, make new friends, and deal with the quirkiness of her everyday life.

Okusan provide examples of:

  • The Ace: Wakaba's tactless senpai from the kendo club, who, for all her childish antics, laziness and poor manners, besides being very physically attractive, is revealed in a later chapter to be a regional kendo champion with a perfect A in every subject, even though she reads manga all day instead of studying for tests.
  • Alcohol Hic: Kyouko lets out one after getting drunk while thinking Darling-Kun left her for his boss to go drinking.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Despite having a beautiful, voluptuous, sensual wife whose life more or less revolves around pleasing him...Darling still looks at porn.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Kyouko gets questioned by her jaded housewife friends who are in disbelief that she and her husband still behave like newlyweds afters six years of marriage. When she asks them if they don't like their husbands, they quickly change their tune and start complimenting their husbands.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Miwa, one of Kyouko's new housewife friends, is chubby and almost as busty as Kyouko. She's been depicted in her underwear, in a swimsuit, and having explicit sex with her husband (who's seen cuddling her tummy at one point). Yuki, who's very thin, tells Miwa that she thinks men prefer women with her figure. In the later volumes, Miwa slims down... only for Kyouko herself to take up the slack. Time will tell if either of these stick. It turns out that Kyouko has been getting bigger because she is pregnant.
  • Big-Breast Pride: Kyouko takes offense to Nonomiya calling her breasts fat since to her, they're not just fat, they're filled with her husband's love. Nonomiya quickly dismantles her faulty logic by pointing out that that would mean losing weight, like Kyouko's trying to do at the gym, would mean losing her husband's love as well.
  • Boob-Based Gag: The majority of the humor in the series comes from the many awkward situations involving Kyouko's large breasts. Most characters that meet her for the first time are in awe of their size, they bounce a lot to the point where characters can't help but notice, and being a bit of klutz she's always bumping them into people and things. According to Chapter 5, they're 107 centimeters (an H-cup by US standards).
  • Brainless Beauty: Kyouko isn't exactly the sharpest crayon in the box, but's she's very kind and pretty nontheless.
  • Breast Attack:
    • In chapter 30 Kyouko gets hit in the chest with a ball so hard it causes them to bounce right the face of another girl standing beside her and she has to put ice on the breast that got hit.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Downplayed with Okita. A single bottle of Beer doesn't get her drunk, but stronger booze like a bottle of wine can get her plastered pretty quickly. She's also very kiss-happy when drunk.
  • Caretaker Reversal: In Chapter 15 Kyouko gets sick so her husband spends the day taking care of her. Being the affectionate couple that they are they decide to have sex, which gives her husband what she had and she's taking care of him the next day.
  • Compliment Backfire: In chapter 11 Kyouko compliments Miwa's swimming by telling her she swims like a whale. Miwa, being chubby, playfully points out that it's not a compliment.
  • D-Cup Distress:
    • Not as common as the series' overall Buxom Beauty Standard attitude, but does occur for laughs every once in a while. Kyouko's breasts, in particular, are so large that they actually, physically impede her in her day-to-day life, from obscuring her vision to getting in the way to smashing into objects and people if she turns around too fast.
    • Senpai offers a more "realistic" view of the situation, as she's the head of the kendo club yet has to deal with having enormous breasts. She complains about them swinging painfully when she tries to run and mopes that the custom-made bras she has to buy for them cost a small fortune each time.
  • Erotic Eating:
    • In chapter 10 Kyouko eats Soba rather suggestively. Her eyes are closed, and she's blushing and sweating (the latter two because it was really spicy soba).
  • The Faceless: With the exception of his mouth, Kyouko's husband's face is either obscured by objects, the angle of the panel and even speech bubbles or almost featureless.
  • Going Commando: Kyouko frequently finds herself not wearing part or all of her underwear.
    • In Chapter 10 she gives one of her bras to her husband as a lucky charm for his big sales meeting. It turns out it was her last clean bra. All she had to do was dry the other ones in her washer-dryer but instead she accidentally hits the soak button so she spends the rest of the day without a bra.
    • In chapter 12 her bra hook breaks in the gym locker. Not wanting to get left behind by her friends she decides to go braless. Something she soon regrets after eating some really spicy soba, and sweating which makes her top see-through.
  • Happily Married: Much to the astonishment of her jaded friends, Kyouko and her husband still act like newlyweds despite being married for six years.
  • He Who Must Not Be Heard: Although Kyouko's husband does speak, none of what he says can be seen by the reader instead it has to be inferred from other characters' responses.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In Chapter 31, the Kusakas ask Kyouko to attend the neighbourhood council meeting in their steed, because their mother is unable to attend due to her job and Wakaba will be late helping her classmates with their preparations for an upcoming athletic meet. At the end of the chapter, Wakaba is about to turn in for the night when she discovers that practically every married couple in the apartment building is having noisy sex. The reason? At the aforementioned meeting, the assembled wives discovered that Kyouko is the woman living in the same apartment from which they've been hearing "loud moaning" every day, and in response Kyouko praised her husband for being "so talented".
  • Housewife: Kyouko is very devoted to her husband and being a good housewife. In a lot of the chapters, she's doing chores and getting the house ready for her husband.
  • Identical Panel Gag: In chapter 5 there are multiple panels of Kyouko getting her waist measured by her fitness trainer, who has an unimpressed look on her face. That's because Kyouko is sucking in her stomach. The trainer waits for her to give up before giving her the measurements.
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Other characters hear Kyouko and her husband having sex every time. According to Kyouko, it's because her husband is very good at sex.
  • Improbably Female Cast: There are only two reoccurring male characters — Kyouko's husband and Nonomiya's husband — despite the story taking place in modern Japan and half the female cast being married.
  • Insatiable Newlyweds: Despite being married for six years and counting, Kyouko and her husband have the energy and incredible sexual appetite of newlyweds, much to the surprise of Kyouko's jaded friends.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: The first friends Kyouko makes in her new neighborhood are the Kusuka sisters (a preschooler, a grade-schooler, and a high schooler). She eventually makes friends with housewives her age a few chapters in.
  • Like Parent, Like Spouse: Kyouko and her mother in-law are extremely similar when it comes to looks, personality, and mannerisms. Looks, in particular, as she's one of the few women in the series to have a bust size rivaling Kyouko, hence why it becomes a running gag for Kyouko's friends to assume that she's Kyouko biological mother.
  • Male Gaze: There are a lot of panels focused squarely on Kyouko's breasts and butt. Not that either of them are hard to miss.
  • Marshmallow Hell: The two of the Nonomiya kids are tall enough that if they accidentally walk into Kyouko they end up with their face in her cleavage.
  • Meaningful Name: Kyouko's surname Okita can also be read as Okida, which is near-homophonous with ookii da, meaning "(it) is big". She has a very big bust.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A huge part of this series is Kyouko constantly getting herself into sexual situations (usually involving her breasts).
  • My Biological Clock Is Ticking: Kyouko gets a little depressed hearing that Moe, who's ten, has a mom the same age as her. When she sees a magazine labeled "And that's how we started our own family!", she immediately grabs it up. And then discovers it's a porn magazine. Which she buys anyway.
  • Naked Apron: Kyouko attempts this in the third chapter. She then finds out her husband has to stay late at the office.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Kirara, the youngest child of Kyouko's neighbor's family, very frequently runs around naked for various reasons.
  • Obliviously Beautiful: Kyouko gets quite a few stares and blushes from background male characters but she's completely unaware of them. In Chapter 6 she denies Yuki's claim that she's probably very popular with men despite much evidence to the contrary.
  • Potty Emergency: Kyouko has one in Chapter 43 while watching a theater movie with her husband. She makes it after it's over.
  • Right Through the Wall: Wakaba frequently laments the fact that Kyouko, who lives next door to her, is both very vocal during sex and has sex with her husband pretty much Every. Single. Day. This's dialed up to eleven at the end of Chapter 31, when Wakaba is dismayed when not only Kyouko goes at it again, but pretty much every other wife in their apartment building too.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Kyouko is kind, friendly and gets extremely romantic when it comes to her husband. These traits are complemented by her bright pink hair.
  • Sex God: According to Kyouko, she is so vocal during with her husband because he's a very "talented" lover.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: In chapter 4 Kyouko wears a backless sundress for a romantic dinner she prepared for her husband coming home early.
  • Sexy Soaked Shirt
    • In chapter 12, eating some spicy soba causes Kyouko to sweat a lot, making her shirt see-through and her bare breasts visible since she decided to go braless beforehand.
    • After that it rains when she and her friends leave the restaurant, and her friends get splashed with water, which makes their bras and panties visible. Kyouko was wearing a swimsuit under her clothes this time.
  • Suggestive Collision: In chapter 8 Kyouko teases her husband by telling him she's not wearing any underwear with her sexy dress so he quickly falls on the floor to get a peak. Kyouko, ironically, sits on his face to stop him from getting a good view.
  • Surprise Pregnancy: Downplayed, as Kyouko and her husband have been attempting to have a baby, which is part of the reason they both have a bottomless appetite for sex even after being married for six years and counting. However, in Chapter 98, when Kyouko is talking with her mother-in-law over the phone about how she has been gaining weight despite going on a diet and working out, the latter surmises that Kyouko might actually be pregnant, which leaves Kyouko happily surprised. Once Kyouko is confirmed to be five weeks into her pregnancy in Chapter 101, both she and her husband couldn't be happier if they tried.
  • Thanks for the Mammary:
    • In chapter 7 Wakaba tries to punch Kirara off Kyouko's breasts and ends up with her arm stuck in Kyouko's cleavage.
    • In chapter 9 Kyouko tries to go past a crowd of women in a supermarket to get some items on sale, but every time she goes into the crowd, someone unknowingly squeezes her breasts and she gets pushed out.
    • In chapter 12 Kyouko unknowingly pressed a lifegaurd's hands on her breasts while begging her to let her wear her bikini in the pool despite it being against the rules. The lifegaurd relents just so Kyouko would let go of her arm.
  • Thermometer Gag: In chapter 15 Kyouko's husband gets a thermometer to help with her sickness. More specifically a rectal thermometer since he wanted the most accurate one. It's an awkward situation for both of them but Kyouko lets him use it since he went through all the trouble.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction:
    • In chapter 5 Kyouko decides to go the gym after ripping the back of the pants she was wearing by bending over.
    • In chapter 12 her bra hook breaks. She decides to spend the rest of the day braless.
  • Weight Woe: While most characters in the series feel that Kyouko has a very attractive figure, she often worries about her weight, a worry that gets exacerbated by certain situations.
    • In chapter 2 she gets sad when she finds out that her old highschool uniform doesn't fit her anymore and decides she needs to lose weight.
    • In chapter 4, after getting drunk, taking off her clothes and noticing that she's got a bit of pudge around her midsection, she reasons that her husband is avoiding her that night because she's fat (he isn't).
    • In chapter 5 she finally decides to go to a gym after ripping her pants while bending over.
