Synopsis

Himuro Yukina, a girl feared by most students for her piercing glare, is secretly a famous cellphone novelist, Yupina. While searching for material on 'love,' something she has never experienced, she stumbles onto Shigure's, the most popular boy in school's, secret. He is actually a serious womanizer who writes down all his accomplishments in his Student ID book. Cleverly using this evidence, Yukina blackmails Shigure into love-acting and teaching her about 'love.' But Akira, Yukina's childhood friend and cousin, is not happy at all with this turn of events. Used to being the only person who's not afraid of Yukina's glare, how will Shigure react to Yukina's sudden shift in attention? How will he respond when the love-acting becomes more than just acting for him?

I really loved this manga, i really really did. But then the story began to go way retarded, and bland, boring, stupid, and most important keyword of all: pointless.

Plot 6 - I thought this would be an interesting story at first, the kind where the main character slowy realises her feelings, but no the author had to go all the way to make a totally useless and predictable twist here and there and tried to spice up the story a bit but instead she screwed it up. Now the entire plot is running in circles over and over and over and over and read more

Great story about an unpopular high school girl who writes cell phone novels in her spare time. Her peers are scared of her because of her intense glare, so she's never had the opportunity to experience "love." When she hears her fans want more love stories, she decides she needs to experience love for herself so she can write about it and ends up blackmailing the most popular boy in her class. Although he puts on a facade of being the perfect guy, he's actually a jaded womanizer and has little respect for the people around him. The two of them read more

I'm not usually one to write reviews, but I just felt that I had to write one for this great manga.

The story interesting, with a rather overly-observant girl being shunned by her classmates, yet at the same time they're dedicated fans of her mobile phone novels.

She tricks this popular guy into doing love related things to her, so that she could understand love and begin to write about love in her novels. The way their relationship develops is what really captivates you; they slowly but steadily become very different people to the façade they show to the world.

The best thing in my opinion about this read more

I LOVE IT!!!! its a classic romantic manga story with a bit of a twist i love her character which is strong but at the same time has her bit of a soft side and the main guy character is the typical popular acting evil but inside he really is kind ^_^ i love the two main character combination this is a manga to read and have in your list.

Manga: Koko ni Iru yo!
It's written by the same author:
Watashi ni xx Shinasai is about a girl who has been cut from social contact from her peers, resulting in the fact that she knows no social skills. She is writing a novel, but her readers are desiring their to be more love instead of always friendship. The male lead is the most popular boy in the class, but he is actually quite unkind and a complete liar. The story is basically about how she blackmails him, after finding out his terrible secret, so that she can learn more about friendship and love.

Manga: Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba sugiru

Manga: Warau Kanoko-sama
Both heroines make a practice of secretly observing other people and pride themselves on their ability to remain detached in those observations. However watashi ni xx shinasai has a plot that focuses more on love while Warau Kanokosama is like a series of short stories all with the same heroine.

Manga: Uwasa no Midori-kun!!
Although Uwasa no midori kun is much more mature, both are wonderful stories with comedy, romance and a awesome love triangle.  
reportRecommended by Akarioru
Manga: Hadi Girl
Both series has a shoujo and experimental feel as the main female protagonist experiences with romance. Throughout the story, they associate with boys that tests their capability of building a connection with them. And while their premises aren't the same or for a similar purpose, they do learn quite a bit and slowly builds confidence. Both series also has lighthearted comedy with the usual classic shoujo tropes.
