First review, so bare with me on this one.

(Taken from MAL)
A 4koma[4 panel gag comic] about a typical geek of a guy and his tsundere[and slightly dominatrix] girlfriend. As the two talk about and play games, they slowly grow closer.

Story: 7/10
Not much to say about the story. Expect something along the lines of Sunday funnies. However of course, the story delivers what it promises, a relationship between two lovers who are both video game addicts. Now, one wouldn't rate this on the same level as say "The Epic of Gilgamesh" but it tells a cute tale that can be enjoyed by all.

Art: 6/10

Houkago Play is the type of manga that people like me love. It promises a steady stream of in-jokes and otaku references, characters that break the fourth wall with their intentionally cliche traits, and a pleasant serving of moe and fanservice on the side. Like Lucky Star or Seitokai no Ichizon, it's the sort of thing that has a narrow appeal, but should easily be able to win the hearts of its fans.

Unfortunately, I believe Houkago Play misses the mark in terms of both story and entertainment, making it mediocre even to moe fans like myself.

The first problem is the story. As you can assume read more

User Recommendations

4-koma manga with mismatched couples that have tsundere girlfriends.

In Houkago Play, a short nerdy gamer and a tall bossy girl.

In Ojojojo, an arrogant rich girl and a boy who dresses like he is from the 20th century and stares at clouds.
The main male leads are similar and in both, the couples struggle with their feelings for each other.
