First things first. This is my first review, so don't send me to hell if it goes bad.
I advise you to not skip any parts that seem boring, or to read it hurriedly just because it's long.

This is a pretty underrated manga, but I'd say it's definitely worth reading. "Don't lose faith!"

Also, this review is completely based on MY opinion. I know that sounds obvious, but many forget that just because a reviewer likes a manga and praises it, that doesn't mean it'll necessarily be as good as the damned reviewer said. Again, please don't send me to hell if you read my humble read more

Firstly, this is to help wavering people to decide whether to read or not read this manga.
Secondly this will be to explain what's up with joker and online (versions of the manga).
Lastly, this is based on my personal experience, meaning I may be incorrect. Please feel free to correct me or give constructive criticism. thanks

To begin, I would like to say read joker before online or concurrently. Otherwise you would miss the introduction of many characters (it makes it a lot more confusing). Also, most online is the online version. However, simply reading the online version will still give you enough details to understand the read more

This is one of the best mangas for passing time.
[Note : This review is for Yandere Kanojo (Joker) as well as Yandere Kanojo (Online) since both are really the same]
Those who don't know, this is Yandere Kanojo (Joker) which features in some magazine. The other comes online (although now both are available online). I'll tell the difference ahead.

So Yandere Kanojo doesn't have much of a plot really, but thats not important. It's a 4 koma manga with many normal pages in between. There is no separate story in each 4 koma, they are all related in that chapter, so it doesn't make a difference really.

Yandere Kanojo is a manga that reminds us of what real life (and love) are about.

It's a funny gag manga with lighthearted, cliche characters. They fall in love in a ridiculous way and have ridiculous interactions and go on ridiculous adventures. The guy with glasses studies hard, the girl with a bat hits people with said bat, and so on.

Then ever so slowly, real obstacles start creeping up, one by one, just like they do in real life. Sometimes they get solved in the same lighthearted, comical way as the rest of the manga, but sometimes they are just hinted at and are put off read more

Manga: Onidere
both contain a delinquent girl who has to keep there relationship with a normal boy a secret or ruin there delinquent pride which causes comedy to ensue  
reportRecommended by sesgel
Manga: Horimiya
Both series are romantic comedies with rough, "violent" girls and a quieter, "gentler" guy. The main couples in both series each have secrets they do not want revealed to others and they will sometimes go to ridiculous (hilarious) lengths to keep them. In both of these series, the main couples get together fairly quickly and the series revolves around the development of their relationships (and those of their friends) afterwards.

If you want a nice romance with a slice-of-life feel and comedy all around, then I would recommend both of them.

Manga: Oresama Teacher
Both manga are about a girl delinquent. In Oresama Teacher the female protagonist is trying to hide her delinquent past while in Yandere Kanojo Reina is trying to hide her relationship with Tanaka. Don't be fooled by the shoujo genre of oresama teacher, it seems much more shounen. There's a bunch fighting, and it's hilarious.

Manga: Hana-kun to Koisuru Watashi
Romance comedy slice of life with a female delinquent in Yandere Kanojo is and male in Hana-kun is male. School settings and both could be labeled "Fast Romance" with Yandere focusing slightly more on the comedy and its seinen and Hana-Kun mostly on the romance and its shoujo.

Manga: Waratte! Sotomura-san
Taking place in a school life setting, Yandere Kanojo and Waratte! uses humorous gags and themes to present their characters. The main female protagonist is viewed by many as a 'delinquent' although their real personality can be quite innocent when around different people. The relationship they have with others evokes a range of reactions. Both series has a lot of comedy so be prepared for a fun ride.

Manga: Tsurezure Children
Both had same story format with daily highschool romcom. Both have nice cute felling with the relationship between the character. One of the couple in Tsuzure have same character with Yandere Kanojo (a cute yankee girl and glasses guy) The difference is Tsuzure Children have more couple arc story than Yandere Kanojo.
