Petite, horny, busty, and with a heart-shaped butt. Best girl in the volume.

I had let the release of the complete version of this manga slip under my radar (so far, I had shared its chapters 1-32-), I found out thanks to LubizAdha :jap:
And thus, there we are, the complete Pomegranate Syndrome, AKA Zakuro Shoukougun! :woot:

The story takes place in a hentai universe I hadn’t fancied yet, there are female geniuses, but reaching their heights comes at a cost. They’ll sometimes enter a frenzy and their genius will be turned towards mating, at all costs, even though it’s harmful to most males. Only a few men, like this manga’s MC, possess immunity, and can safely bang those genius girls silly, until they come back to normal at last ┐( ̄ヮ ̄)┌

Graphically, that was nice without being Kurokawa Otogi’s best manga. First off, the censorship was bad (full whiteout) in the first half (and then, it’s thick black bars, an improvement), and second, even though there was plenty of sex and tons of paizuris, I felt it was “only” good, I had the impression there could have been more… Sorry, subjective impressions, I can’t quite explain…

Thanks to Desudesu and his unknown commissioner for this release! :jap:

By the same artist, known as Kurokawa Otogi and Otogi No Kuni No Soapland, I also share Paizuri (224 pictures), Fumajimeni Uraraka (“Insincere Serenity”, 213 pictures), Kimiyoubi No Atoaji Wa, Oasis Ni Miserarete, Hitonatsu No Liter Girl and Chishiki no Kakushiaji (“Intelligence’s Secret Ingredient”). Plus, the mangaka has a few pages in ZuriColle!! ~ Rengou Kantai, Totsunyuu Su.

Let’s not pretend we don’t see the elephant in the room: WHY THE FUCK “POMEGRANATES”?

When I shared the chapters 1-3 of the manga, in July 2019, there were propositions in the blog comments. To summarize them, I will quote a few Enlightened Pervs.
Garhunt: “pomegranates are generally seen as sign of fertility. perhaps the author is going biblical on us”
Oldbrokenhands: “a hentai version of “Like Water for Chocolate”” (link)
Silvs: “Pomegranates could be a reference to how women can be sweet or sour. In Wikipedia it’s mentioned that pomegranates were brought to Moses by scouts to show how fertile the promised land was. And some Jewish scholars thought pomegranates were the Forbidden Fruit Eve ate and gave to Adam.”

So, basically
– land fertility symbol, source: Moses and his scouts
– red of passion, source: the “Like Water For Chocolate” novel
– forbidden fruit candidate, source: jewish scholars
– lots of seeds inside, source: me. C’mon, the male MC is a creampie machine.
– maybe simply the mangaka’s kink: last resort option
– And then there was the final comment, Nambi’s fucked up scientific publication :D

And now, the download & gallery links :)

Smaller version incoming!
As of usual when ☑ the images are in high enough resolution and ☑ the archive is quite big for its number of pictures, and ☑ it offers a significant gain, and ☑ I have enough time to do it, if it may help, I’m offering you a smaller version, in which I resized the images, here from 1920 px to lower-standard 1600 px resolution.
The zip shrank from 261 MB to 94 MB.
Personally, I prefer it for reading, and it takes less disk space.

Um, damn; I never thought I’d say this, but I’m kinda glad this is censored. The sex is so good and intense that the uncensored version might make your dick explode, and not in a good way. Think hot dog in a microwave kind of weenie explosion.

That being said, the story is like a Louisiana Russian cake of geek genres.
You got:
-A little zombie/crazies action.
-A little Vulcan pon farr action.
-Some weird comic book mutant abilities.
-Even some D&D like magic (a lot of magic missile).

I look forward to reading it someday, but lust-wise I can’t make it past 40 pages, keep wanking myself into a stupor.

No anal, but once again, kinda glad; while dying of a hentai-induced stroke would be my nice way to go; I fear I might miss out on more perfect works.

Oh and in closing:
-It’s nice to be quoted (+1 ego boost).
-Apparently pomegranate seeds are sex performance enhancers for female rats, who knew?
