Insults aimed at Saku Chitose are a dime a dozen. Nicknamed "Class 5's womanizing scumbag," he is constantly slandered online by those jealous of his popularity. Luckily, that barely makes a dent in Saku's confidence. Outside niche internet forums, he is the reputable figure his schoolmates admire and a model student his teachers trust.

As his second year of high school commences, Saku reunites with his old friends and befriends new ones, all belonging to the school's social elite. However, the fun is cut short when Saku's homeroom teacher instructs him to convince his shut-in classmate, Kenta Yamazaki, to return to school. Wishing to wrap things up quickly, Saku visits Kenta's house the very next day. But the task proves more challenging than he expected when he discovers that Kenta is firmly and fully on the Saku hate train. If he wants to preserve his impeccable image, Saku must find a way to win over Kenta and bring him back to school.

Enjoy your youth to the fullest, you will look back at it someday. As a grow-up adult right now, I also feel that way.

So this novel caught my attention when I saw an interview with the author, Hiromu-sensei. There, he talked about a lot of interesting things, but what immediately caught my attention was what he said about if you make a protagonist which is a handsome, popular boy, and he already knows the girls, you wouldn't have to write all the same clichéd stuff about boy-meets-girl and whatnot, pretty much the standard romcom light novel starting point.

I was sold when the synopsis said that ...

This is truly a masterpiece for me.
This is my first review, please take a grain of salt.

This is one of the best LN I have seen. If you don't like the first arc which is helping the otaku get back to school, please don't drop this LN. The first volume of showing the main male character Chitose who is a riajuu, somewhat narcissistic, and some more personalities that you might not like at first. However, this only shows the surface which the story will develop much much better after. This series also did a very great job in showing characters' emotions, their inside thought, ...

I genuinely don’t think I can enjoy another Highschool romcom again and it is entirely this novel's fault.

Chitose is in the Ramune Bottle doesn’t reinvent the wheel, or make any revolutionary changes to the Highschool romcom genre. But what it does is shift the perspective from the typical ‘shy, outcast, solitary, otaku loser’ to the ‘popular group’. It’s this small change that elevates it from its oversaturated, generic peers into one of the greatest Highschool stories of all time.

Our main character, Saku Chitose, is undeniably a chad. He’s got a harem from the get-go and is brimming with self-confidence, and incredibly sociable. I never realized ...
