Aikawa Wataru's father is being transferred overseas. Seeing this as a perfect opportunity, Wataru decides to stay behind in Japan and live on his own. Even though he's a new transfer student, his teacher convinces him to become a Library Representative. A fellow Library Rep tells him they’re missing a member and asks Wataru to find her. Not knowing how she looks like, he wanders the school trying to find her only to notice two girls gossiping about her negatively. It turns out the person he's looking for isn't well liked, because of her bad personality.
Her name is Kobayakawa Rinko, but what's the source of her bad attitude?
Whenever people read or hear the words "Love Plus," they might think of a mathematical equation involving love. Okay that joke was bad and I feel bad.
Love Plus is a dating sim for the Nintendo DS. The player gets to choose between three characters; Nene Anegasaki, Rinko Kobayakawa, and Manaka Takane (first name, last name). As you can probably tell, this manga specifically focuses on Rinko.
We are introduced to our protagonist, Wataru Aikawa. He transfers to a new city and meets the heroine, Rinko. They keep bumping into each other, starting a chain of events that lead to the two being involved with one
another. This wasn't my first time being exposed to such a development, so I kept my expectations low. It was a cliched setting, yes, but it ultimately satisfies the reader through its execution.
If you know about Kimi no Iru Machi (A town where you love) or Suzuka, then you probably know this guy. The wonderful artist that is Seo Kouji who is very skilled at drawing females took interest in Love Plus and applied his own unique style to it. At the very least, it is 11 chapters of eye candy.
I want to focus on the main heroine, Rinko. Rinko is the damsel in distress. She acts in an aloof manner, and prefers to be with herself rather than other people. "Damsel in Distress" is quite an appropriate term to describe her because she makes her appearance reading a book about princesses who get saved by princes. Her interactions with Wataru makes her grow as a person, with herself becoming more honest. The transition from an aloof and cool beauty to an awkward, honest person was very satisfying.
Love Plus: Rinko Days has 11 chapters and an average of about 27 pages each chapter.
Amazing. Thats the only word to describe this romance story.
Love plus Rinko days is based on a dating sims game where three characters can be chosen. Incidentally as the title suggests this focuses on the girl named Rinko.
Aikawa Wataru is a boy who transferred to a new highschool, his father being overseas and his mother being busy, leaving him to leave alone and fend off for himself. On his first day he coincidentally stumbles upon a girl, later which he finds out to be a hated upon girl named Rinko. Rinko has several family issues and does not want to come home, however Wataru keeps
supporting her and telling her what to do, and her very tsundere- cold personality gradually opens up to him
The three main characters are simply Wataru, Rinko a girl who is detested by everyone, and helps clean the library but never goes until Wataru keeps badgering her upon it. Takane a tennis player who no one wants to associate themselves with, later Wataru decides to cheer her up and help her get friends and be a partner with her, it is hinted throughout the story that she likes Wataru, but this is minor as most of the story focuses on Rinko
The development for a 11 chapter story is quite amazing, and its really cute how Rinko opens up so much to Wataru. That being said the art is amazing, Seo really knows how to convey his art in the romance genre, the facial expressions he uses on the characters are truly splendid.
Like any other of Seo's works this is truly a short but amazing masterpiece the beauty of it not being too long to avoid fillers but not to short, to not develop a proper romance. If you enjoy romance this has to be on your reading list , 10 in every aspect I loved this alot.
