Synopsis

Shy Satsuki Shinohara's plan for a big high school debut are almost ruined by a pervert on the train, but she's saved by none other than the "gangster" student in her class, Yamaguchi-kun. He's already got a bad rap with the other students, and though Satsuki tries to approach him, he seems to always weasel out of her grasp. But she's not one to let a challenge daunt her, and she's out to prove that Yamaguchi-kun is so much more than he's cracked up to be.

I absolutely love this series so far. I know it's a shoujo, but I honestly think it can capture a lot of people who are even remotely interested in the romance genre. There are no love triangles or misunderstanding/denial of feelings. They just really care about each other! It's light-hearted and has surprisingly good comedy.

Satsuki is such a sweet protagonist, who supports our male lead boldly knowing that just because he looks ...

Spoiler
If there is one word I could use to describe this manga it would be "forgettable".
I don't mean forgettable in a bad way, but forgettable in the sense it has nothing unique. The author seems to be afraid to deviate from the standard cookie-cutter characters and plot.

Spoilers below, so better to skip the next two paragraphs.

Firstly, the two protagonists. Asuka is just your standard male protagonist that just has the unfortunate luck of looking like a Yakuza. Plot twist, he's actually a really nice guy that's focused on his studies. Something we've seen in other mangas before that have captured this way better.
Satsuki is ...
