Fate brings two people who live in the same condo together on a typical afternoon. Ozawa (26) has just broken up with her boyfriend of five years and was in the process of trying to rebuild her life when she meets Oyamada who lives a couple floors below her. He is somewhat of a loner although he does have a few friends and his room is cluttered with all the random stuff that his impulse shopper brother sends him. Ozawa takes an interest with all the things in his room and the two start a friendship that slowly turns into something more.

Moving on a recent relationship breakup sure is hard, even harder if that past relationship had span for quite long period of time and what makes it really hard for a person to erase the bitterness is the way that person still lurks on the past, eventually becoming insecure to what her former lover had become or worst plotting a revenge to that person that broke his/her heart.

So while looking for alcohol related manga’s like Bartender, a random person on a chat introduced me to Bonnouji. This may not have been about alcohol but I still fell in love with it. It’s a very simple story about a man and woman falling in love. There is nothing really over the top, no harems for Oyamada to pick from, no really large conflicts or supernatural intervention. After all the anime and manga I have read over the years, I was surprised this was actually a manga (don’t you love sarcasm?).

The characters are very simple, and sadly sometimes a little to simple. Ozawa read more

They are both sweet, simple love stories. Horimiya takes place during high school, whereas Bonnouji focuses on young adults. The artwork for both is nice and clean and the dialogue is witty and funny.
Similar slice of life type comedy mangas about young working people living together, they are both cute and funny and light-hearted.
