BxB brothers had been on my "to read" list for a while. I am a real sucker for this type of story! Girl gets picked up by the cool/weird/exciting group of boys at school, and from there friendships/romances/adventures happen. Here, new girl transfers to a school, and ends up joining the Baka Brothers, who happen to be in cosplay this week. I came into it with.. not *hugh* expectations, but expecting laughs.
The problem is the characters. The plot is fine. The art is fine. The characters are well drawn, although two of the main characters look a little too similar for my liking (i.e.
I couldn't tell them apart! but I think if you are paying a little more attention than me, that wouldn't be a problem). It is a cute style, totally in keeping with the story.
But! I dropped this at the first volume, and there is so much other stuff out there that I don't see myself picking it up again. I just didn't like the characters at all. The girl - she whines (I know, I know, typical shojo heroine). The boys are slightly more likable in their comicness but yeah. Major disappointment :-(
There is so much other stuff out there, that I have not continued reading it. Having said that though, I have read around, and there are people who REALLY like it, so if you want light and humourous, it may just be your cup of tea.
What did you think of this review?
