It's been a month since she entered high school, and Jun has started noticing a particular guy hanging around her classroom. When he suddenly confesses, she's not sure where she even knows him from--or how she feels about him. But come what may, he seems pretty intent on sticking around...
A high school setting, a sudden confession from a persistent guy, and the whirlwind of young love that ensues. This sounds like every cliche shoujo premise you've ever read, doesn't it? But while the plot is simplistic and predictable, My Hero actually succeeds in making the same old cliches a little more palatable because it does something very different.
The male lead in this manga is not popular, he's not a bishounen—he doesn't fit any of the usual cliches. Instead, he's the dorky, earnest, hardworking guy that isn't very popular. In fact, he's the type of character you'd see in a love triangle in one of the more popular shoujos—and he would be the one that loses. This type of character always loses.
In regards to the heroine, she's not particularly exceptional herself, but she's does give the male lead a chance without dismissing him. Granted she's a little taken aback by his enthusiasm, and sometimes a little on the tsundere side, she's also very earnest herself. As a couple, they have good chemistry and are easy to root for.
Since it's such a short story, the plot itself basically follows the two of them. There's no exceptional line of character development—there's not much time for it, although it does exist. Sometimes the skipping in the timeline can be a little confusing, but considering the material, it's not too hard to catch up and understand what's going on.
The art is fairly average by my assessments. The lines are clean, however, and there's no exceptionally wonky body proportions. Considering that the male lead is fairly plain, this isn't going to be an "eye candy" manga.
My Hero proves a refreshing read as something that carries none of the unnecessarily angsty obstacles. It's straightforward, it's fluffy, light, and enjoyable. Don't expect anything too deep going in and you won't be disappointed.read more
My Hero! was just what I've been looking for. Lately, I've found myself dropping shoujo manga out of disappointment and turning to shounen and josei manga. I'm glad that I was able to find My Hero!
The manga is about an ordinary girl named Jun Okamoto. For some reason that she can't comprehend, a guy named Yutarou at her school keeps watching her at break and apparently is interested in her. Even though it is unclear whether Jun even has feelings for him, he persistently continues to go after her, which makes her dumbfounded. His extreme persistence is basically what makes the manga.
The art is satisfactory and very cute. I like the characters' different facial expressions and also like how Yutarou has a really short hairstyle, unique and different from the normal long hair that guys have in shoujo manga.
The characters are excellent! I like Jun because she's not that typical ditzy and naive girl protagonist (that I can't stand). Yutarou is just plain hilarious.
This manga isn't extremely profound or anything, but I thought it was cute and well done for a short manga. I normally don't like short manga because it's usually ... not that good. If you're looking for a cute and short manga that is worth reading, this one will "cut the cake" for you. read more
My Hero. Sounds like a cliche title doesn't it? I'm not sure how I stumbled upon this, but I'm glad I did! I'm just basing this on the 7 chapters I read, because I could not for the life of me find the LAST chapter. Brb, gonna go cry.
It was incredibly light-hearted and just plain hilarious some parts! I actually chuckled a few times, too. I don't think I've laughed this much at a manga before. This story had a good feel to it, and I think the author did a fantabulous job with it!
I really liked how this time, this guy is not the bishounen like most of the guys in mangas usually are. Though he's not a bishie, he's just adorable and I actually envy the main girl T___T . The art was to my liking, yes!
I loved the characters in this! I especially liked the male lead's grandpa, haha too funny! (Gotta read it to laugh, hehe.) The girl was nice, and the male was just greeeat! I should stop fangirling over him now should'nt I?
I really enjoyed this manga! I haven't read a good one in a long time and I think this manga really deserves more credit than it should
I hope you enjoy reading this manga as much as I did!read more
Despite its predictability, its light heartedness made it enjoyable. This manga was a good read for its plot was not to in-depth that required deep thought; or did it surprise you with twists. Instead it provides a calming, cute and sweet tempered plot.
It was nice to see that neither main characters personalities were changed or dimmed down to sort each other. Instead an opposite attract approach was developed in a way that left me smiling. If only current boys were more free-spirited as Yutarou.
