Kare wa tomodachi is one of my top ten go to drama-romances and with good reason. No manga reader picks up a shoujo romance title and thinks to himself "Sheesh, there sure seem to be a lot of misunderstandings between these people and a lot of unnecessary conflict and pain is resulting from it. If only they grew up and stopped making such a big deal out of small things!" Hahah, OK while reading, maybe we do let slip such harsh thoughts, but honestly, being a teen is hard, and it is precisely this anguish and delight of being a teen, finding and losing and read more

Kare wa Tomodachi is probably one of the most amazing mangas I've ever read in my whole life. Why? Let me tell you.

First: STORY
The story is something every teenager (which is most manga readers) can understand. It doesn't run around the bush but instead, it goes straight to the point. "I like you." that isn't really hard to understand, right? Although I must admit it can be quite annoying sometimes but it goes well in the end or it goes to a different way you'd thought it would be. It changes. Because life changes as well.

Secod: ART
The art is not perfect but good enough. It read more

I have to say that this story's plot was unexpected, yet rather DISSAPOINTING for a guy like me reading this.

There are specific reasons why I don't particularly like this manga. The story is about this girl, Hiyori, who first falls in love with a nice guy named Ren. The two of them go through various troubles though, and it's those troubles that shows how very selfish and immature Hiyori is, despite being the main character. Hiyori fails to realize Ren's situations, fails to understand how very kind and caring he is, and above all fails to see how much Ren read more

Alright. so I'm not the best at writing reviews, but I'll try to make things clear. I hate stories where it's the same thing over and over again. It shows that the author isn't creative, and keeps going through the same ring. I'm pretty sure this author must have some good stories, but this was definalty not one of them. Most teenagers read manga for enjoyement and to escape reality, but if the manga reminds them too much of reality, than it's going to be something not many peopel will like. I found this story too much near reality due to all the heartbreaks and read more
