Fūka Esumi has a full-grown body, standing tall at 163 cm (64 in). Despite her appearance, Fūka is just an ordinary elementary school girl. When she moves in with her relatives and enrolls in the local school, her body draws the attention of teachers and students.

Media[edit]

Manga[edit]

Written and illustrated by Yūgo Ishikawa, Yoiko was serialized in Shogakukan's seinen manga magazine Weekly Big Comic Spirits from 1996 to 2001.[3][4] At first, it was planned to be a short series, and Shogakukan collected its chapters in two volumes, released under the Big Spirits Comics Special imprint in May 1997 and January 1998;[5][6] however, after the series began a regular weekly serialization in the magazine, lasting longer than planned, this edition was discontinued.[7] Shogakukan released fifteen tankōbon volumes, from June 30, 1998,[8] to May 30, 2001.[9]

Anime[edit]

A twenty-episode anime television series adaptation, animated by Pierrot,[1] was broadcast in Japan on TBS from November 7, 1998, to March 27, 1999.[10]

Reception[edit]

John Oppliger of AnimeNation called the series a "Golden Boy style ribald comedy".[11] Oppliger also considered it one of the earliest true fan service anime television series, but he commented that unlike contemporary fan service anime, Yoiko's nudity and sex gags were "innocent and humorous, circumstantial rather than provocative like today's "fan service.""[12]
