Summary

When Kazusa enters high school, she joins the Literature Club, where she leaps from reading innocent fiction to diving into the literary classics.

As if puberty wasn’t awkward enough, the club consists of a brooding writer, the prettiest girl in school, an agreeable comrade, and an outspoken prude. Fumbling over their own discomforts, these five teens get thrown into chaos over three little letters: S…E…X…!

Kazusa was a quiet middle schooler, but she arrived in high school determined to make friends. So (as a huge Harry Potter fan) she decides to join the literature club. When one of the club’s icebreakers is “say one thing you want to do before you die,” one of the girls blurts out “sex.” The prudish club president, the class beauty, and the other nerdy girls’ reactions are wildly different. Far from a typical sex comedy, O Maidens in Your Savage Season depicts how these girls challenge and support one another when THAT WORD pushes them onto a variety of clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths towards adulthood. Mari Okada’s unique talent for pairing lovable and relatable characters and emotional twists is lent new dimension by the detailed and dynamic sequential art of Nao Emoto (Forget Me Not).
