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.

I first thought it would be funny to read because the art was horrific.
After getting into it, I started liking the storyline, the characters, and I kept updated with it.

It's very cute and light hearted. The characters/ love interests are realistic and mature and the little things that happen between them are fun to read about. The two characters are pretty relatable. I still like it even though the art is horrible.

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

Bonnouji is an instance where it manages to be a successful love story without depending on a drama storyline. It is often a necessity for romance to have some conflict in order for it to develop albeit it can turn into an ugly incoherent mess based on past experiences. What these other works do wrong is that they underestimate the potential a romance can bring. Drama can push a relationship to new highs and lows but it only works when the premise requires for such thing to happen. A typical heartwarming story between couples can go wrong by forcing it into a more serious direction. read more
