No Longer Heroine
Volume 1


Constantly gauging the roles of others, Hatori Matsuzaki has always been the main character, so it's only fitting that she be the heroine for her crush and childhood friend, Rita Terasaka. Even though he has girlfriends, she is convinced that she is the only "right" person for him and that they will eventually be together.

This is the narrative Hatori has followed her entire life. However, her whole world is thrown into chaos when Rita begins paying attention to their classmate Miho Adachi, a plain and unassuming wallflower, and they soon start dating. Hatori begins to question the nature of her reality: has she been the side character the whole time?

I dont really know why a lot of people hate this manga. But i think this is one of the best shoujo manga i have ever read.

The story is not ordinary and the art is okay ( actually i love it though ). But i think the most standout point is the character. I think most of the character in this manga is great and i can see the development. For example lets talk about Rita, the male lead.

You can just skip to the end if you want to.

Characters (I don't hate the heroine)

If you're like me the thing that's making you hesitate are the characters. You read this in the other reviews before "the main characters are so annoying and I hate them". I can see where their coming from but guess what. I don't actually hate the heroine. Feel free to double check that you read it correctly. I was very reluctant to give this manga a try because I heard such bad things about her but honestly I found her to be an interesting character. It's refreshing to ...

I seriously regret reading this trash. I was just looking for something to pass the time and I came upon this and decided to try it out and oh boy do I regret it. Honestly, I just want to forget abt it but that's not happening anytime soon.


Story 4/10
Honestly, it had potential. It could been a simple and cute story but obviously that didn't happen.

Art 6/10
Nothing much there. It was okay
