The First Yen! Money-Saving Girl Students!

This reminds me of Binbo Shimai Monogatari, but no sisters and only one frugal character.

Brief Summary

Yamada Momo and Suzuki Madoka are two girls who share the same tiny room.

Time is Money

Just a Dream


They’re both trying to save money… but with different goals in mind. Momo’s far more carefree with her money. That’s why she’s always behind in savings.

Different Dreams

Why of all things One Piece

Even in school, they stay frugal. Or in Momo’s case, she tries to…

Money Saver Duo


Life is tough being poor.

Toilet and Bathtub in One Room


Don't Peek!

“Don’t peek!” It stabs… straight to the heart.

Through it all, the girls endure temptation… trying to save each and every yen.



Even if it’s only one girl who does most of the saving…


Serious faces!

It's Good


I am not a lolicon. I am not a lolicon. I am not a lolicon. I am not a lolicon. I am not…

Madoka is so adorable. Not because she looks like K-ON‘s Azusa with a ribbon stuck on her head… Not because she wears shimapan… Not because she intensely blushes when embarrassed. Wait. I take back the last one. It’s one of her charms. Blushyyy~

If you’re familiar with the art (especially the hair style of Madoka), you might recognize the author Tooyama Ema. She’s also the authoress for Koko ni iru yo!, another series that I would recommend but haven’t found the time to stay updated.

Anyways, as I mentioned before, the premise for this series is similar to Binbo Shimai Monogatari. Two girls, living together and trying to save money. However, where Binbo Shimai Monogatari is a heartwarming and touching story about two sisters, Hyakuen! is more comedic and moe-blobby. It’s a good work but I’m wondering how long the cuteness will last (before it grows old). But until that happens, quite enjoyable!

  1. BLUSH! /ded

    This is sooooooooooo cute! O.o So will this be classified slice-of-life/comedy or comedy/slice. Hmmm, I can’t see that it would have a strong plot, but enjoyable enough. Wonderment.

  2. Definitely Comedy/Slice of Life. I guess the only serious part would be when Madoka finally saves enough to go to Germany… and having to part with Momo.
