A girl asks Katsuragi Shouta to take a picture of her with Enoshima in the background. Embarrassed by her cuteness, he takes the picture and runs away. He later finds out that she is an actress by the name of Shinomiya Sana. A TV drama, Koisome Momiji, will be shot in Shouta's town and Sana will be starring in one of the lead roles, as a passionate girl who wholeheartedly chases after the guy she loves. However, Sana has never experienced that kind of love. To practice for this role (and maybe truly fall in love) Sana asks Shouta to be her boyfriend!
Koisome Momiji is a pretty standard rom-com that uses lots and lots of cliches you can see everywhere else in this type of manga, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
The story is predictable, and the reasons that the heroines fall in love with the main character are laughable.
Very good art, characters are detailed and reactions are well drawn.
Characters follow typical archetypes for this kind of manga, but still manage to be very entertaining. Main character is kind of a textbook example of a rom-com manga though and falls flat.
Scratched that rom-com itch for me and was entertaining throughout.
Short, fun manga
if you got some extra time.
Short romantic-comedy manga have their flaws and of course the have their advantages. The advantages are, it's always refreshing to talk about romance, so romance is one of the best genre to explore and it's always fresh. Flaws are, cliches, ecchis, drama-queen, over-reacting art, over-extended arc, and you will know who's gonna end with whom. Heck, it has more flaw than advantages.
But here i am, writing this review early in the morning. It's 5 am here, in Indonesia.
So my friend about 10 hours before this review gave me this manga. So i read it. One page(Actually it's the second page, but it's still counts because
that single second page that made me hooked). One page was all this series need to hook me in. It's the art. I don't easily say 2d girls are pretty but this one is a rare gem. Shinomiya Sana standing at the coastline asking you to take her photo made me hooked into this series.
As for the story, well, what can you expect? Like what i've said before, cliches, cliches everywhere. Ecchi too. Still, this series prove to be different. It doesn't have a over-reacting art, doesn't have a drama queen, and this is the most important, it shows that idols are human too. (I didn't mention Shinomiya Sana is an idol? Well now i have.)
I don't blame you if you don't want to read this, because it's pretty understandable. You don't want some cliches, you don't want some mainstream Rom-Com-Ecchi. The last, (this is the most important, almost every rom-com has this) you don't want a series where you have already know how the ending would be.
It's the classic rom-com with clearly a very predictable story and ending, but it's refreshing on its own. All the clichés have been used wisely.
They are well done.
We do all quite understand each one of them, which is more than enough for this kind of genre.
There's no dumb character, and the reaction of the girls when he's embarassed is something you usually see elsewhere poorly done, but in here it's perfect.
The MC's behavior is nothing new (quite common), but his reaction when (spoiler) he hears nana crying (chapter 25) is something extremely refreshing for this kind of genre.
It was quite entertaining.
This rom-com manga is quite
great, because it's very short:
By being short, there's no need for extra-plotting (cheap drama) that would ruin the story (making it boring/frustrating).
You can enjoy a short but intense story.
This is a really great one shot. I really wish it wasn't a one shot though. It has a nice story line and great characters. The art and comedy was fantastic. This one shot really pulls you in through the romantic situations and like able characters.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good romance.
Thank you for reading, I hope that this helped in anyway possible. :)
