Rena may only be in high school, but she already has an important job -- she's a successful shoujo mangaka! When she decides that some experience with dating is necessary to draw better romances, she chooses famous actor Tomoya to help her learn what it's like to be in love. Even though they're dating strictly for business' sake, Rena finds herself falling deeply in love with Tomoya. Seems like romance is a lot harder than it looks in manga!

Included one-shots:
Volume 1: Magical☆Project
Volume 2: Bewildered♥Princess


Manga Mitai na Koi Shitai! was published in English as Fall In Love Like a Comic by VIZ Media under the Shojo Beat imprint from October 2, 2007 to January 1, 2008.

The character sketching in this manga is definitely applause worthy, but apart from that, little saving grace is left. The heroine is forever in chibi form, which is cute, but gets a tad unrealistic. The hero is well, not dashing enough but will do. Minimal character development along with a watery plotline and non existant dialogues.

What does manage to stand out are the multitude of expressions Sakura is capable of experiencing as well as the very personal sketch-book feel of the entire manga, like it was drawn sitting in a dull calculus lecture. However, that's about all this manga is standing on. The mangaka managed read more

Story: Well the story is quite simple. Starts out with a girl by the name of Rena Sakura who is in secret a highschooler/mangaka. She tends to write love manga's and is trying to deepin her story's with more.
One day she runs into the most popular guy in school, Tomoya Okita (the guy that turns all the girls down), who makes a joke to her that she was trying to advance on him. In the process of running into him she drops her manga rough drafts and after a visit to her editiors figures out that they are back at school. In the meantime read more

'Fall in love like a comic' is fun because it is a story about a mangaka, but if you look better at it, it is a bad story. It has no real end, and the love scenes aren't very good too. The only real good thing is the art; (I really like this drawings. It is a simple story to read once, but I can't really recommand it. It has some fun in it, but that is only because the characters are some stereotype.

I really like this manga. They have separate stories with the same characters... it did start out as a one-shot. Right now, i saw that there are 2 volumes out, each with a different challenge to the two lovers. The characters are, for me, very cutely drawn... especially the lead, Tomoya, but the lead girl, Rena, is also vary cute since she's always drawn in chibi form. There are also not much main characters to complicate the series... its only Rena and Tomoya. Anyway, the manga has its cute moments, some corny moments, but it's nice.
