This manga has a very high rating and a lot of reccomendations, but still no review. I shall attempt to explain why I like this manga and recommend it anyone to read it.
This is in my top 5 manga (of any genre), I can reread it many times because it's so entertaining. There must be a new trend among shoujo mangakas to have smart, level headed female leads who always don't just have love on their mind. As most people may know that this is a sequel to Warau Kanoko-sama, but one doesn't have to read it (though I'd recommend to anyways). The manga is read more

This one also has really great ratings... I think it's quite good so far but I'll have to see what other story we can get from it, still too early to tell.

Basically, Kanoko, who has transferred schools 108 times before entering 10th grade because of her father's job, finally gets to her new high school along with her good friend Tsubaki. Kanoko is a master strategist, quite unlike the typical shoujo girls. She's calculating and has her faults. She's also oblivious that Tsubaki, typical shoujo perfect male lead like Ren, Yoh, Rui, etc, is very much in love with her. read more

If you like Koi Dano Ai Dano, try Last Game or vice versa. The handsome main leads in these shoujos have to deal with intelligent yet clueless girls. The guys fall for them, yet they see him as their best friend and ignore all clues about romance - also the guys are not very good at straightforwardly telling the girl, but go about their approach in a round about way that leads nowhere, yet in a very humorous way. Koi Dano is very humorous yet also very well written and witty, while Last Game is not as intricately woven, it's also very good.
Strong female leads who are smart, they both have a cold sort of megane outlook on things which is a lot of fun as you see them analyze situations. They both have prince like guys who like them but they are indifferent or clueless about it. They both involve school clubs, in Koi Dano ai Dano they are in the newspaper club, while in Kaichou wa Maid-Sama they are in student council.
Cheese in the Trap and Koi Dano Ai Dano have intelligent and observant heroines. These manga both have cold and caluculating characters who seem observe others, and while they are not mean their personalities are not typical ones, both series have both comedy and drama. They differ in that Cheese is josei while Koi Dano is shoujo and that Cheese has a more complex plot and a mystery.
Both manga's protagonists act as somewhat outsiders, who reluctantly involve themselves with their classes. They also deduce factors, influences and relationships within the class.
Each main character is analytical and acts somewhat superior to the rest of the class. However koi dano ai dano is shoujo and is a much more lighter and more comedic read than Onanie Master Kurosawa. If looking for similar main characters try this one on.
They both involve a strong female lead l in a school club with a prince type guy and both girls are oblivious to the guys affections.
They both have strong female leads and they both center around a school club, in Ouran High School Host Club they are of course in the host club while in in Koi Dano ai Dano they are in the newspaper club. Both have the prince type main guy who is likeable and a cold logical smart megane girl who is indifferent to or clueless of his affection. Actually the female lead of Koi Dano is a bit like a female version of Kyoya ( the megane character from Ouran ) in that she is smart, logical and a behind the scenes strategist who runs things around her and is concerned with making money.
