Watase-kun is an ordinary high school boy, nothing special about him, unless you count that someone is secretly vandalizing his possessions after school each day. With very little clues and even less of an idea, he sets out to catch the perpetrator. However, he discovers that once again another of his school items have come up missing. Feeling that enough was enough, he attempts to catch the violator in the act red handed. What he finds very well may change how he see his little world.
oh god this is my first review so don't be complaining to me on how it's amateurish or whatever. At least i'm trying you know?! *cough* *cough* Well anyway..
The first time i've seen this manga is at MT, (which now is sadly removed along with the other japanese manga series T^T tsktsk) i was quite drawn to it since the title made it really intriguing in a way.. "Hen" meaning "strange" & "Koi" meaning "Love,"
thus -- Strange Love: After School Diary.
it may seem at first glance a typical romance/comedy/seinen manga (which it is, in all aspect of its TRUE- which is borderline hentai genre) but no, it definitely gave me quite a shock there (in actuality, i really thought that it was a shoujo manga considering its title, so yeah..).
well, for starters, find yourself a girl (in which you are a boy by the way) who would, i don't know maybe, "bully" you by putting weird liquid on top of your desk and stuffs like pencil, etc. well not actually "bully" since he's only presuming that. Good start eh? Kind of Onani Master Kurosawa plus with the "action" if you know what i mean minus the pure awesomeness of OMK. the pacing is good for its length since its only 9 chapters and you wont feel rushed or dragged on.
clear, but not as not as good as other manga that i have seen. its pretty decent and good but is lacking quite amounts of detail and fluidity.
i like the ecchi girl and the boy is the generic type. well actually the girl is too. heh. the supporting characters are second to none, well since this manga has only 9 chapters in total. Character development, hmm, the girl actually develops-- into a more perverted person seconded by the guy!! But i dont mind since it is a bit nearing to borderline H. heh. P.S. i'd be damned if i do what he did around a certain chapter ending!
the perverted person that i am, well not actually that perverted, but perverted nonetheless, i can say to myself i enjoyed it, got laughs here and there with a couple of perverted smiles here and there. :)
it was a refreshing read if you have some time to spare.. :) well, even though you dont have, you can still read it (just dont read it with lots of people. :P)

4 words."horny at first sight".*cough*.Of course, the manga not me xd, Baka.
All the adorkable moments, witnessing the comedy,ecchi filled story is just delightful.
This 9 chapter manga is of a strange yet passionately horny young couple of Honoka and Watase, the cude chemistry between the two is definitely on point as much as the centre of this manga and its various ecchi related plot.
The short story is ecchi at best, "plot and proud" and you just can't help but, weirdly fall in love with the two as they go about their pervy teenage love romance.
It is an ecchi gem,it challenges the little pervert in us all and yes, it is nose bleed inspiring.Love and ecchi are one.
Nothing fancy about the art ,its more story than art driven but, the art isn't as bad and by that I mean enough "plot" to excuse its faults,
hence a swift imbalance but, so goes mostly with basic echi related manga . The art is humble and it has a moe but teen romance feel to it.
Development of the 2 main characters and the other douchebag side character (as the cast has just 3 characters fyi ) was well done, basic, no complaints.go figure, its a short manga and I wish it went on alittle longer.
I mean, in a short manga like this its a make it or break it if they isn't balance in ecchi & story ,but in this one,everything had a way of just coming to an epitome of ecchi,love and humour.
Nothing is too perfect but, this short manga will have a good place in your ecchi heart and if you are looking for a quick ecchi buzz ,this crazy teen horny love story is just for you
Overall 9 Nosebleeds

If you translate the title of this manga, it is Weird Love. This is exactly what the manga is about - a rather pointless manga about weird fetishes (such as peeing).
Of course, this is an ecchi manga with borderline hentai. What does the majority of these types of manga have? Popular girls, and big-breasted girls. This manga? It combines both types and throw in a story about them. “Guy finds his desk wet and eventually finds girl one after school and falls in love with each other”? Yeah, sounds like some excuse to place a love story on.
The art is rather pretty, but art points are very few - especially on a story and cast such as this. Ugh, two main characters that have similar fetishes, that obsessive, jealous pervert that wants the girl… sounds like a pretty ridiculous cast; and it is.
The majority of these points were from the art and how so mildly amusing this piece of work was because of its story and characters. You know, weird fetishes and love stories don’t work very well. 4/10.read more
