[Story - 10] The story in Kimi wa Girlfriend really intrigued me. I personally found it interesting to see whether two polar opposites will be able to get along or not. It may be a fairly common storyline amongst manga, but it's always interesting in it's own, unique ways. In this case, a mean girl surrounded by older brothers and a kind boy surrounded by older sisters.
[Art - 9] The art. I always thought that art in manga were very detailed, especially with all those strands of hair and all but this book's art was fantabulous! The expressions fit the environment and situation and at times can be very hilarious. Clean panel layouts with fun(ny) side dialog.
[Character - 10] Usually in manga the girls' personality was kind and sweet but the main heroine in this one totally blew me away. EXACT opposite of what usual feminine personalities were. Every storyline changes made in the middle of the book was extremely off my predictions due to the unpredictability the author has made the characters. Every turn is a new one. Made the storyline POP out and extremely fun to read.
[Overall - 10] A solid 10 hands down. I was drawn in the book from start to finish. The author definitely knows how to do her job right. Satisfied my demands and leaves me wanting more... read more

There are lots of good examples in mangas of straightforward girls that find it difficult to build relationships with others: Maria Kawai, of Akuma to love song is the first example that comes to my mind. This is not the case in this manga: I didn´t like the female character at all... I don´t find her "credible".
The story goes about a girl that has no friends because she is unable to communicate properly, and the way her life changes when she joins the "Maidens Club" and meets the president of the club: a boy called Kirie.
I understand that someone may have difficulties conveying accurately what he or she feels. But being too straightforward or being rude is not the same as being "mean".
Hasune doesn't say what she feels in a rude way... she says exactly "the opposite" to what she wants to say... and not only that: she is mean, just because...
Some of the situations are believable, but other are just absurd. There is, for example, a scene in which Hasune bakes cookies for the girls in her class, with the hope of making new friends.
Instead of saying: "Would you like some cookies?" or "Please, have some cookies", I understand a rude person may say something like "Here, take this", and force the other person to take the cookies: "I said you take them!".
But why would she throw the cookies on the floor and say something like: "Bow down and eat. You deserve to eat it like that"?
It makes no sense at all... Is she insane or something? Does she have a personality disorder? I think that having been raised among men isn´t enough justification for her behavior.
The male character is much better, though.

I really thought the character development was very well done and it advanced the story and had a good pace.
Its not ur ordinary shoujo characters (weepy,girly,dense,angsty,aloof,hard).
It was pretty funny and had alot of sweet moments.
The art was pretty good. kirie is such a bishie lol!
other than that, I wish it was more than four chapters. I also wanted to learn a little more about kirie and the other two people that joined the club. It was a short story so there wasn't time but there's alot to be desired read more

For a one shot manga, this isn't really bad, but I can't say it's good either. [Read the synopsis]
The character's character didn't even change a bit from start to end - this is where consistency is a bad idea - there should have been more some kind of a twist, but there's none.
Plus, the girl is annoying. I mean, if you want to be friends with other people, who doesn't know the rule - be nice to them.
And the guy? What? He's not gay, obviously, so why exaggerate? Don't act one if you aren't.
I recommend this for people who are bored reading GOOD mangas, you need a break sometimes. ;) here you go. read more

The idea is not really origional and the plot is sort of predictable. There are some funny moments but overall it's just you average romance between tsundere and honest persons.
The art is nothing special, I just really like the style.
Well just the basic idea, one character has a problem (in this case she is never honest) and has a dream (to get girl-friends) then she meets a special person and then I won't spoil the rest.
The two main characters are complete opposite (cliche) and both have their own problems. In most manga's like this the characters over come those problems and become nicer persons but this one was just too short to have that happen so the characters are pretty boring.
Okay,the characters are boring, the art is nothing special and the story is predictable but it's not hard to read. There are some funny moments and the side characters are a little special (in a nice way). Overall it's a predictable cliche story but its short so its a nice inbetween read. read more

Story 10/10: The storyline is pretty good. I liked the ending; it was adorable.
Art 8/10: I think I'd give the art an eight. This was because, though they fit, I didn't really like some of the facial expressions, and that really set me off.
Characters 10/10: The character development was as good as to be expected of a super short manga. I like the main male character, Kirie, who had the most humorous habit I'd ever read about. I also liked that Hatsune was obnoxious, as I am sometimes like that (although not to the degree Hatsune was ^_^).
Enjoyment 10/10: I really liked this! And as much I wish it were longer, in a way, the short ending fits.
Overall 10/10: Absolutely! I liked everything, from the obnoxious behavior, to the conniving characters, and the male characters (=}), and everything in between.
It's a great read for those who have some spare time and like cute stories. read more
