Yukino Tachibana is a calligraphy prodigy. At the tender age of 16, she is already one of Japan's most exciting young artists, performing live calligraphy demonstrations to sell-out crowds on worldwide tours. With her refined, beautiful, and mysterious air, she is so popular at her new high school that she has earned the appellation of "The School Madonna."

She is also as dumb as a post.

As artful her brushstrokes, as demure her outward demeanor, the real Yukino Tachibana is far-removed from the image her classmates see on television and in the school hallways. In reality, apart from her calligraphy genius, Yukino is completely useless, rude, and possessing of a distinctly inflated sense of self-worth. There is only one classmate who fails to be fooled by her facade: run-of-the-mill protagonist du jour Tarou Nakamura. Sitting next to her in class, Nakamura doesn't really get why the rest of the school finds her so enthralling—he's much more interested in his crush, Amano-san. But this indifference might prove to be his downfall, as circumstances cause Yukino to set her eyes on him...

This boy, this poor, poor boy, is burdened with a Herculean task—to keep Yukino's true nature a secret from the rest of the school, while trying to win the heart of his sweetheart. Can Nakamura really keep this brainless beauty's utter idiocy a secret?! And can he win Amano's heart through the power of calligraphy at the same time?!

First of all, I would've gladly given this one a 6, or maybe even a 7 out of 10. But I stuck to 5 because of one glaring issue - the story isn't complete, and there is no indication of it being continued either. The sequel to the manga was cancelled, along with another from the same author simultaneously not too long ago. But don't be disheartened just yet - there's more to it.

The story focuses on only two characters with steady but good development. There are a couple of side characters too, who are mostly there for comedic purposes. What I like the most read more

tl;dr: An interesting concept that isn’t implemented that well but is funny for how short it is. 

I really liked the concept of a guy helping a girl fake being a school idol. I think this implementation didn’t really work though. The main character doesn’t have much personality but is overall fine. The problem is that I don’t think that the heroine really worked well at all. Simply put, she’s only annoying. Being annoying and rude and such is perfectly fine if there was more to her but it never really felt like her good aspects showed, and hence she was never really a likable character. read more
