*FINISHED THE VOLUME 1*
The story goes back to one of the most prestigious schools in Japan where there is a peculiar star-based ranking system that you can earn with your course grades or by playing game matches against other students. Our protagonist has a fight with the Empress of the school, the unbeatable, and ends up winning causing a lot of problems and seizing the title of 7 stars (the highest classification) because of an accident. Shinohara will have to defend this title without having the ability to possess it but with the help of being able to cheat. It is an interesting premise
and it develops well during the course of the first volume, and on top of it it is easy to understand so you will immediately delve into the story feeling part of it. The only two criticisms I have about this section are that sometimes the story can get a bit repetitive and that it is similar in many ways to Classroom of the Elite (Novel).
This is perhaps the weakest part of the Novel, the art of the novel is simple, it is not very detailed and in some cases it may seem incomprehensible, I give you an example, in the first chapter Saionji is described as a girl more Beautiful than Kawaii and in the drawing she appears looking small and Kawaii, but she did not command respect as they had described. Apart from that there is a chapter without any drawings and that seems wrong to me since unimaginative viewers need a sufficient number of drawings to imagine the situation, not even 1 drawing per chapter.
In general the characters are very good but my score does not reach 8 because we need to know more about them, I want to know more about the story with Saionji and her friend, more reasons why the identity change, more information about Himeji (which is why It's true, I love his personality) and above all I want you to specify and explain more about the Shinohara objective, which at the moment as the protagonist I am liking but I want more information.
This first volume has enchanted me, both for the personality and charisma of the characters and for the plot, I really enjoy school and strategic plays and on top of that there is also a dose of RomCom, in general I have loved it.
This is a work that has a lot of potential, I will wait for volume two to be translated since it depends on how it goes, it is very likely that it will raise some of the scores that I have put.
