Synopsis

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.

But what if you have something to preoccupy yourself with? Perhaps burying yourself under loads of work, breaking sweat on a particular sport or embracing a new hobby--things that could help rehabilitate not only our heart read more

Mangakas of the romance genre often try to spice up their plots by putting their main couple through many dramatic obstacles in their relationships like third party involvement or family affairs, dragging the readers along for a roller coaster ride of heartaches.

Bonnouji has none of this. Nothing really happens. The best way to summarize this is that 2 apartment-mates meet and fall in love. And yet it manages to capture your attention from page 1 all the way to the very end.

Relationships don't need to be spiced up and dramatized. Bonnouji zeroes in on the comedy arising from the awkwardness and trickiness of 2 people read more

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

I loved this series for a couple reasons, the first of which is that it's lighthearted. There's no major drama, but it focuses on the interactions of the characters in a fun way through their daily lives. The romance never felt forced, and was fun.

The art never stood out as something amazing, but was good. The characters were all distinguishable from each other and the character design was distinct. Where things excelled in the art department was the designs and life of the apartments. The setting was great and it helped to give the series life.

Overall, I loved this series for its characters and how read more
