This could be any girl. Imagine being a heroine of a love story. Hatori also believed that one day she would get married to her childhood friend, Rita. But that's not how the world works! This is a hilarious comedy that honestly paints a painful unrequited love story of this young girl!

hmm so I started and completed this manga because I wanted to read Heroine no Ryuusei (Hirunaka no Ryuusei Crossover one-shot with Heroine Shikkaku).

Before i start i'd like to say the main reason i disliked this manga was because i found both the main characters annoying. So if annoying characters are bearable for you or if you find them funny, go ahead you'll most probably enjoy this manga :)
The main chara's idiotic moves were meant to be comical but leaned more toward irritating for me.

Art 8/10
The art was pretty good. Funny even. No problem with the art.

Character 2/10
I did not like Hatori, the heroine. read more

Heroine Shikkaku tells the story of Hatori ,who appears as smart girl, who has a crush on her childhood friend. Well,the appereances couldn't be more wrong.
Despite being rejected for over 10,000 thousand times,she never gives up! I had to overcome the urge to yell at the screen : "GET A FUCKING CLUE HATORI!!". Obviously she doesn't.
I thought that I couldn't find someone worse than this,then I saw Rita,the crush. Just leave the poor girl alone okay? You gave her trust issues man! He rejects her in one second and in the next second he's all over her.

This is probably the worst shoujo manga I've ever read. It's so bad that I'm not even bothered to write a good review on it.

First of all, the story. Pathetic. The first chapter pulled me in, it isn't like any other manga I've read, but it just got worse and worse. The thing with Kousuke was the worst part. Why did he get so mad about Hatori mentioning Rita if he told her to date him so she'd forget? He should've known what he was getting into. The story wouldn't of turned into a mess if he didn't exist. And Adachi? Why did read more

what captivated me most about heroine shikkaku was probably the way the story is introduced. hatori is what you'd call a flawed heroine---and i was digging this entire vibe. i thought that okay, this is going to be one of those mangas where the clueless, selfish, and idiotic main character will change for the better, and find love along the way.


before i get into the bad parts of the manga, i wanna give props to the good ones first. the art is pretty, and the side characters are very likeable. in fact, even more likeable than the main characters. besides the point, i read more
