Warning!! might contain spoilers!!

Boyfriend is kind of a typical shoujo manga. But somehow it has this "thing" that makes you want to read it 'till the end.

The story is kind of common but the next thing you know the plot is actually kind of different. Like, if you thought that the guys likes her already,but it turned out that he's not really into her yet. I could talk about this as long as you want but it will result to a major Spoiler and I don't want that to happen. lol

So yeah, its a cute story. Trust me, I'm not really drawn into reading read more

Boyfriend was about a girl who transfers into a new school and befriends the cool, aloof genius boy of the class. It turns out she left her old school because of conflict, and with the help of Tachibana is able to overcome her anxieties.

The story was a pretty typical shoujo, but I like reading them so it was enjoyable to me. I was expecting the truth behind why she left her old school to be more interesting, since she took pills during the beginning of the story. The only real miff I had was the ending, it was way too abrupt...

The art was good, read more

User Recommendations

The male characters in both series seem to be around the same models and both main girls deal with a bit of teasing from their classmates (although it seems like it's less so in Hijiki's case).
Both stories deal with a girl going to a new school and not knowing anyone, and then finding someone/people that bring them into the crowd. Boyfriend has a little darker..."drama" in my opinion. Although the drama aspect of the story may be different, if you liked Giri Koi you'll like Boyfriend.
