Smart, refined, and strikingly gorgeous, half-Russian half-Japanese Alisa Mikhailovna Kujou is considered the idol of her school. With her long silver hair, mesmerizing blue eyes, and exceptionally fair skin, she has captured the hearts of countless male students while being highly admired by all others. Even so, due to her seemingly unapproachable persona, everyone remains wary around the near-flawless girl.

One of the few exceptions is Alisa's benchmate Masachika Kuze, a relatively average boy who spends his days watching anime and playing gacha games. Despite his nonchalant demeanor, Masachika is the sole student to receive Alisa's attention. Unable to be fully honest, Alisa is frequently harsh on Masachika and only expresses her affection in Russian. Unbeknownst to her, however, Masachika actually understands the language yet simply pretends otherwise for his own amusement.

As the odd pair continues to exchange witty and playful remarks, their relationship gradually grows more romantic and delightful—and Alisa might finally learn to freely convey her true feelings.

Just read the story already. It's the perfect LN for any of you who has a sweet tooth. The story has its own depth, the character is quite interesting with a mysterious back story that makes you curious about them. The heroine is a tsundere who only speaks her mind in Russian, but that is the main gimmick of the novel and I think that this works great. I am not good at writing reviews but for this masterpiece, I tried. If you want a good read that will make you smile for a day or two, just pick it up, I swear it will ...

I'm Really Enjoying it and Wish there will be an anime/manga adaptation in the future and hope it will be a good artist or good studio...
The story is really good and I find it really adorable and hope this novel becomes successful in the future...
I can give this a 9 since it's still a novel which I don't read that much with this one being the exception.
I have to use my imagination on what's happening and one illustration to use my imagination to animate it...haha....
Now I'm just waiting for the upcoming chapters :D
Because I have to write a longer review I'll just do this..

Roshidere is one of those "Fetish trash novel that you should read if you are a horny teenager" and anybody who says that it is good has clearly not read more than 10 manga/light novels (if you do, get help. Get a life)

The story is a bland, run off the mill story that, if you remove the whole Russian thing (and even then, there's one also about a tsundere Russian released a few years back) it is no different from any other manga/light novel. Let's see:

You have a tsundere unable to say her feeling and acts over the top; you have a bratty little sister; ...
