It's high school meets nature documentary in this new shojo comedy! Kanoko Naedoko, a third-year student in junior high, doesn't make friends and keeps to herself. Which is fine by her because then she can be the ideal "objective observer." Steamy love triangles, school gossip and courtyard politics only mean more data for Lady Kanoko! But when she befriends some of her classmates, what will happen to Kanoko? Will she become more than just an observer?

Okay so first off I have to say this manga was really interesting and unique. However it is also really confusing. I didn't understand that she was actually transferring schools multiple times until like the 5th time it happened; I didn't really see the point in doing so. The character relations dont really matter (besides the first chapter) and you could skip half a chapter and still get what was happening. Personally I got just started jumping pages till haru-kun showed up; something awesome always happened after that. :

All in all though its worth checking out!

Warau Kanoko-sama is probably one of the few shoujo manga that I can say I thoroughly enjoyed. I have to say that I absolutely adored the main character, Naedoko Kanoko. Unlike a lot of the shoujo protagonists out there, she was completely refreshing and unique for a protagonist - not just for the shoujo genre, but any genre in general. She may be introverted, but by no means does that make her shy or meek. She's also very clever, independent, intelligent, and strong. Most importantly, she manages to stay true to herself, which I loved, because I've seen many protagonists change because of read more

I read this manga first a long time ago but stopped because of one big fault in the manga that to me reduced the enjoyment. It was the lack of consistency with the characters. I realized that in this story the main character would be jumping to different schools and also encountering with new people in each chapter with only one reoccurring character. I'm glad to have given this manga second chance because I was able to enjoy the interesting yet relatable situations, and also enjoy the characters that also seemed rather relatable.

For those who are looking for a romance, this has bare minimum amongst read more

I absolutely love this manga. What I love most about it is the main character. I like how strong her personality is. When she's ostricize and made fun of by her classmates, she could care less and doesn't cry and complain like so many other girls would. She doesn't take BS from nobody and sees straight through fake people. She doesn't sugarcoat things, prefering to tell people exactly what she thinks of them. Though she's a loner, she enjoys being one and goes so far as to make sure it stays that way. However, when someone does decided to truly be her friend, she sticks read more
