Patalliro is a series about the boy king "Patalliro". It's a long series with stories about the three main characters. It's a well-known comedy series in Japan that hasn't spread to a wide English-speaking audience for various reasons; including how long it is and how difficult it would be to translate a lot of the puns. But I decided to take a stab at it so that more people can (hopefully) enjoy this classic.

Patalliro Doujinshi - Doujinshi of Patalliro is hard to find, but I managed to find some. This section now has a password on it. Keep reading for the password.
1. The username is the name of the main character of the series.
2. The password is his names backwards (Ex: maraich - hciaram).
3. There are no capital letters in either.

When I first saw Patalliro, I thought it wasn't my type of manga because of the style and the way the main character looked. However, as I learned more and more about it, I became more interested in reading it.
Finally I ordered the manga series for myself. And this series looks like it's a hidden treasure.
If you're like me and think, "It doesn't look like my type", try reading the first chapter and getting a feel for the manga. You might be pleasantly surprised. The art is actually quite good, but people aren't used to the old-style artwork anymore and don't like to give it a chance.
