Sakuraba Yuuto is a high school student who is open about his otaku lifestyle and has been recently interested in a new moe artist named Sayane. At his new class, he is assigned a seat next to Kashiwagi Kotone, the popular girl in school, who strongly shows her dislike for the kind of culture Yuuto is into. He runs into Kotone at an otaku store and learns her secret: that she is, in fact, heavily into the moe culture she says is stupid to everyone. Yuuto promises to keep it a secret and the two start a relationship where they discuss their passion in secret. But Yuuto still doesn't know that Kotone is really the artist Sayane that he admires so much.

Do the main characters look like a perfect, womanly tsundere and a pathetic shy guy? They do? Well they are finally not. Finally, someone dared to make two characters that actually ARE alike in some aspects. The rule of 'opposites attract' is finally out of practice in at least ONE manga! Bring the champagne, we're about to celebrate one of the better girl-ish reads out here, Tonari no Kashiwagi-san!

The idea of having two characters eager to befriend each other is so very simple, so it truly begs a question of why hasn't anyone else thought of that before? The progress of the light plot is read more

I made a review on this manga already but I thought I re-do this because I want people to feel what I am feeling about this manga... One thing: This manga is the true concept of MOE...

Story: The story is the usual high school genre but I gave the story a 9 because the story is not on the fact of the high school itself but the building of relationship of the guy and the girl... And then another couple comes in which makes the story really interesting at the same time...

Art: I don't know what to say... Perfect? Improbable? Miraculous? The Art in read more

Okay while the art isn't terrible everything else about this story is. The story is boring with the only real tension coming from the hidden identity. Everything else is really slice of life but with no possible twists this story becomes very bland. The love aspect makes me want to gag. The only character that the story even focuses on past the superficial is Kashiwagi and only enough to know that she loves to draw, is socially awkward, and is afraid of being unpopular (despite fact she is only shown to have two friends). The main thing that upsets me is the protagonist. The protagonist read more

One of a kind is sometimes used exaggeratedly but this manga truly is like no other both in story and in art style.

Romantic anime and manga are always the same and it's either a secondary story line or the main in an unrealistic ecchi. This manga does it more simple but it is a good change that can make your heart stutter with excitement.

The characters aren't anything special but I fell in love with all of them anyway because they are so life like and relatable , Having the story and characters more life like and real brings out unparalleled beauty.

speaking about unparalleled beauty, the read more
