Kuragehime was first introduced to me in its anime form; I got really interested in the anime so I decided to check out the manga afterwards. For me who was also obsessed with various things like boy bands, games, movies, TV shows, and novels I can relate to the characters feelings. I wasn't an eccentric fangirl like the main characters but the emotional experience are basically the same.
I'm honestly enjoying this manga a lot more than I expected. The anatomy of the characters bodies aren't as detailed as I would like but it's different and I got use to it after a while. The main characters emotional struggles of understanding their feelings is relatable in a very humorous way. I only read up to Chapter 24, but the story now seems to be progressing a lot more than the anime did and I can't say anything anymore because that might just spoil it. ;p
If you've ever been obsessed (could be extremely obsessed, moderate or mild) of anything or anyone in your life you just might enjoy reading this manga. :) read more

This is the reason why I drop shojo manhwas so fast! The girls are MENTAL! Do they not have any brains what so ever?!
This manhwa has rich people who are very shallow, who gets whatever they want whenever they want and will even kill who ever badmouths them.
It's very cinderella type kind of story but with a twist. That's what drew me into reading this manhwa in the first place. I even put up with the horrible drawing style. The backgrounds were cheap (yes, I do pay attention to backgrounds) and I haven't seen those kind of eyes since Sailor Moon (I've outgrown that anime for a reason).
I like how the main girl character is a secret fighter and just doesn't crawl in the corner to die, because of all the bad fortune that happened to her. Strong willed woman like her I admire but why is she surrounded with rich b*******? I feel like punching or killing all the other characters for being so crazy dumb and shallow.
I enjoyed the fact that she's a great fighter but there wasn't a lot of comedy scenes for me to enjoy thoroughly. The fact that made me stop reading this practically half way was because all the girl are "crazy in love" mostly CRAZY. I hate manhwas or mangas like this, the whole yandere thing is really creepy.
I don't think anything a person reads should hate the characters so much to always want to kill them every chapter. There should be "shojo" and "yandere" category for this not just "comedy" because there wasn't much comedy on this read anyway. I really don't think this manhwa deserve the praise it got here so much. read more

I finally got to see the work of Hiramaru Kazuya, this character always made me laugh in the Bakuman. I thought his manga would be really unusual and it is but it's the good kind of oddity. It felt so fresh and it's so funny.
I couldn't help but keep on going back to Bakuman while reading this (since it did kind of branched out from there), it just fit so well with Kazuya's persona. It translated a lot of what he's like in it, he's a genius and he even begs his readers like he does with his editor.
The thought of having a half-man, half-otter to be some kind of hero is so unusual to me but I kept on reading because I thought it was smart. There's also a good amount of comical scenes for me to enjoy it until the end.
Art's good and simple but I think that's what it's meant to be. Judging by how Kazuya's like in Bakuman I did expect that from him.
It won't be continuing it's just a one-shot. I'm glad their main focus will be Bakuman but it's also kind of a shame because now I'm totally interested on what becomes of Otter 11. read more

Continuing on with the story just prolonged its idiocy... I stopped reading it before finishing the last chapter the scanlator uploaded. If they had kept going I might have continued because that would give me some hope the characters will possibly get smarter.
One character did show up who was almost smart enough to have saved the manga for me but then a couple more idiots showed up after him. I couldn't enjoy this manga when to me it was implying that their world mostly consists of vulgar people.
Stupid characters made the story stupid.
Yes, I am indeed blaming it on the characters. The story would have probably been much better if they started out with a smart character before chapter 13 or15. read more

The story started out so well, and there was definitely surprises that shojo manga readers love to see. But once the story gets to the climax... it stops. The manga ends... it's done. *broken heart*
I was so shocked it just ended the way it did. I'm not saying any spoilers but if you want to read a good story and look at great art, see cool characters, have a few laughs, this manga delivers. But it's short lived, so be prepared to be either disappointed or shocked. ('cause I was... definitely shocked. this is my first review also. I feel so empty in a way... and I just finished the manga an hour ago.) read more
