Art: 8 (still need some consistency, but the female emotions are fucking on point!! I LOVE the female MC)
Character: 9.5 (LOVE the female MC setup, basically the essence of the manga, slight yandere alert!)
Enjoyment: 10 (addicted to the fierce emotion shown by the female read more

Read this if you want to give yourself depression because you will never have a relationship this perfect. Let's be honest - this is not the manga about simple school love, but about our dreams about perfect girlfriend who will never be with us. I love this manga so much that i read it in one time and i am waiting for the new chapters. But be aware because this manga is like drugs. I want to say this was a good manga cause I enjoyed it but when I look at myself I see desperate person who avoids reality

p.s. shikimori is very cute, would read more

tl;dr: A short sweet and wholesome love story with very little drama and an enjoyable cast


Not much to say with this type of format, most chapters are your average SoL style chapters which depict the main couple doing various things. Pretty much most chapters follow similar patterns with the setup of the chapter, something flirty happens, the main female lead puts on a yandere-esc face to hide her embarrassment, cuteness follows. Nothing too groundbreaking but at the same time nothing that wouldn't be boring


Really well done, bit off at times but overall it effectively portrays the cuteness of this manga. Shikimori's yandere faces are read more

This manga is a fluffy story about a rather accident-prone man and his overprotective girlfriend. This story is a slice of life like with each chapter being bite-sized and an excellent read to end the day with.

Story 7/10
There isn't much semblance of an overarching narrative, with each chapter being more or less self-contained.

Art 8/10
While the art can be a little under detailed at parts, I like the art style of the manga and have no qualms with it.

Characters 9/10
The dynamic duo are likable and the supporting cast is charming, they are very enjoyable to read. read more

Earlier this year I found a different manga, Kubo-san Doesnt Leave Me Be (a Mob). I thought it was a great romantic comedy that was shallow on the story, but focused on just being a really sweet romance, focused on distinct characters. Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san accomplishes this same style and takes it to the next level.

Story: 8
Like Kubo-san, the story of Shikimori-san is not really anything exceptional. Rather than an overarching plot, the story of Shikimori-san is character driven. One-off chapters and small story arcs make up the story, and it isn't until you look back at what the characters were like read more

This story is basically about a cool, masculine girl x cute feminine guy.

There isnt much drama which is good. Actually, I don't think there is any drama. NO LOVE RIVALS, JUST THE TWO LEADS HAPPILY TOGETHER! It focuses on the relationship between the two leads who are in love with each other and are dating. The story further develops their relationship through various dates, moments and experiences they share.

Also, the parents of the leads are CUTE, LIKABLE AND SO LIKE THE CHARACTERS!

There will be several moments where you fall for the female lead cause of her masculinity.

Story: 7/10
Overall: 9/10

This is my first review in MAL and I decided to review this manga. This review may contain a light spoiler so be careful when scrolling.

This is the second romcom manga I read (first was Rent a Girlfriend), so to be honest this manga can make those who read it have a diabetes especially for those who are still single.

I will make this review base on the 4 aspects
Story : 8
Well this manga doesn't have a story that related between chapter, it has a different story for each chapter, like you know the format use in Asobi Asobase and Daily Life of read more

Pain its all Pain everytime i read chapters of this manga the relationship between these two is too perfect for you to imagine you will have this kind of relationship in real life but then again 2d and real life are purely different and what I can say is this manga is one of the ones that gave me diabetes and depression of how sweet and wholesome it is and how it makes me face reality that I will never have this kind of relationship in real-life

But then again it makes my day so if you like wholesome mangas I would defenitely recommend this one read more
