Ten de Shōwaru Cupid (てんで性悪キューピッド Ten de Shōwaru Kyūpiddo?, lit. "An Ill-tempered Cupid in Heaven"[1]) is a Japanese romantic comedy manga series written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi. It was serialized in the Shueisha magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1989 to 1990. Togashi is best known from his later works YuYu Hakusho and Hunter × Hunter, also serialized in the same publication.

Plot[edit]

The storyline of Ten de Shōwaru Cupid follows Koinobori Ryuji, a sweet and introverted 15 year-old who lives with his four stepsisters and their father, the leader of the Koinobori yakuza and promiscuous playboy by heritage, just like his own father, grandfather, and so on. Ryuji's family has a tendency to make fun of his innocent nature, causing the boy to continuously try to run away from home. After escaping one day, Ryuji witnesses a beautiful girl with a devil tail bathing in a forest pool. Embarrassed, Ryuji returns to his home only to be confronted by girl the following day.[2] As it turns out, this devil girl (named Maria) was hired by Ryuji's father to live with them in order to teach his son "the pleasures of the flesh" and make him follow in the family's perverted footsteps.[1][2]

Media[edit]

Ten de Shōwaru Cupid was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump from its 32nd issue in 1989 to its 13th issue in 1990.[3][4] The series was collected into four tankōbon (bound volumes) between January and November 1990.[5][6][7][8] A wide-ban re-released was published in three volumes from March 18 to May 19, 1994.[9][10][11] Finally, a bunkoban (pocket) version was published in two volumes on November 15, 2002.[2][12]
