This series is about a girl named Otome who's searching for love now that she has entered high school. But of course, finding love isn't going to be easy, especially if you have three delinquent boys who are your childhood friends. Otome explains to the boys that since they are in high school now, she wants to find love and fall deeply in love, but Tokio (one of her childhood friends) insist that she be part of his plan. He dreams of taking over the school and becoming a grand gang leader; he'll even let her join as the sub-leader. What is she going to do? As she sneaks away from the boys, she catches a couple of girls watching the most popular boy, Touyou, being confessed to!? Is this love at first sight? She decides to spy/stalk him...what will she find out?

nice art, likable characters, pleasant for eyes, but nothing impresive.

characters 9
this manga strong point is characters. Otome is not typical, weak, anoying, crying heroine. she is strong, always ...

It's the basic “girl decides when she gets to high school she's going to get a boyfriend” shoujo cliché. The good thing is the manga is very entertaining because of this.

There's not too much going on with the plot after Otome achieves her goal. Instead, she faces many hiccups in her new relationship: jealous petty girls, childhood best friends who realize their feelings, and a grandmother ugly enough (in my opinion) to raise the dead.

I adored Tokio! You could describe him as a tad brighter Luffy if he were training for the yakuza. His highest aspiration is to take over the high school ...
