Wataru Sajou, who is deeply in love with his beautiful classmate Aika Natsukawa, approaches her without getting discouraged while having dreams about their mutual love. However, one day, he woke up thinking, "I am not really fit to be together with someone as good as her, huh..." Upon realizing this, Wataru started keeping an appropriate distance from her, much to Aika's surprise. "Could it be that he hates me now...?"

Did his intentions slip by her because she was getting impatient after arriving at the wrong conclusion?! This is the start of a romcom revolving around two people who just can't get their feelings across and both think their love is unrequited!

This review will be a brief one.
Yumemiro Danshi is basically a light hearted oregairu.

Anyway, if you've liked oregairu you're probably going to like this one too
BTW I will probably ...

ah, high school life what a wonderful thing to remember as an adult like us, right?

this story takes place of ordinary high schoolers whose blinded by love, what do you expect from a high school theme, right? NO, this story takes the love route almost too seriously for any ordinary reader like us, for starter we're greeted with Sajou Wataru whose madly in love with Natsukawa Aika (a school goddess) and then a certain event wake him out from his one-sided love dream, from this point on the story stays at the original plot and expand from how's he see's the world around him almost ...

The score I've given is relative to other novels of this genre.

To start with the negatives, the illustrations are unacceptable. The main character is meant to have blonde shadow root hair, there's a whole chapter dedicated to this topic. He's also meant to have below-average looks, I'm not saying make him ugly but thin eyes or something. I read this novel on ‘syosetsu.com’ and have only skimmed through the first two published novels so I don't know if it gets better, but I doubt it. The character designs, composition, and even the choices of which scenes to illustrate feels so low effort.

The story starts ...
