Hatori is a confident, clever girl who believes that she and her childhood friend, Rita, belong with each other. But what happens when Rita falls in love with the quiet, unpopular girl Adachi?
Heroine Shikkaku is a unique story shown in the point of view by the girl who would be the antagonist in a typical shoujo manga. Throughout the story, Adachi, who would normally be the heroine, seems like a mere supporting character with no personality. What is especially unique about this manga is that the author lets her readers sympathize with Hatori. Her love Rita has chosen another girl, but she refuses to give up. In the beginning, she seems unsympathetic and ruthless, but the author gradually adds qualities to her that make her character more complete.
What is also great about this manga is that there are twists everywhere that are difficult to find in other manga. The heroine meets new people, as well as develops her relationship with them, but also finds herself and her former love constantly drifting together again. Without completing the series, it is almost impossible to be sure what the fate of everyone will be, just as the author intends.
Overall, there is never a moments when the story fails to surprise and anyone looking for something unique and/or a thrilling romance story should give this manga a try read more

Just a note: I'm usually an easy scorer, so 10s and 9s for me are usual, so even if there is something that displeases me, it would rarely go under an 8.
The story was given a 9 because it had a great plot and some unexpected twists. The reason why it wasn't perfect is because there was some repetition and extremely predictable events. The male main character has so many girls fall for or target him is outrageous. In the end, those girls were used for the rest of the story. Luckily, every situation is very original from the former, so it is either something to look forward to or something that will eventually bore you because it is becoming so predictable. The amazing thing is that the author was able to use these unique situations to go along with the progressing relationship of the main characters.
I'm not a professional or anything, so I found the art to be pretty well done. Unlike some manga, the reader can see and interpret the characters' actions clearly and easily without having to stare at it for longer than necessary. The art was beautifully drawn, so I have no complaints.
Just like in most manga and anime, there is usually this one character or a few characters who irritate the readers immensely. This manga is no exception, but these characters are absolutely necessary to construct the story. What was amazing was that every character had some trait that separates him or her from everyone else. Also, the character developement was done well so we can often see their growth.
I'm going to round down, but this manga is definitely worth a try if you have free time and are looking for a long series. I felt there was some things the author could have done to improve the story, but overall, it is a pleasure to read it.
