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!
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. :)
Well, Koisome Momiji, is a manga full of cliché, thats is the true...
But with a really interesting history, this collection of cliché that the authors created and the environment where it is passed, makes a very good manga in collegial type title
The story is definitely well arranged and the facts, as usual in a shoujo manga that blends elements with school life, take place in chronological order, the cliches, ranging from imoutos tsundere who incidentally are the things i really like in manga of this type !!
Innovation is the kind of story, i never imagined that a story that blends actresses, gravure idols and singers could be a so good work.
Altogether Koisome Momiji is a fantastic manga and i hope it becomes anime soon, would love to see sana-chan in anime !! read more
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.read more
The one shot version was what made me read this. Why? It had a pretty good plot line despite being a little cliche. The serialization was something else with a different beginning but still had the nice entertainment of romance, love triangle, harem, comedy, cuteness, etc....yeah ikr. Not gonna spoil much of the manga but here's my thoughts.
Story-10: Why? The interaction between the two main characters r pretty priceless when it comes to romance.They first met with a lovely picture and scenery which leads to their romance(serialization ver). Sana asks Shouta to help her experience love by letting Shouta pretend to be her boyfriend for a drama show. It's nice watching them progress over obstacles despite being cliche which includes a harem like situation and a tsundere. All i have to say is despite being rushed and axed it had one of the BEST ENDING compare to other axed/rushed mangas. FYI THANK YOU FOR THE NO HAREM ENDING.
Art-10: Obviously the art isn't eye hurting but rather very nicely drawn and eye catching. Nothing much to say but i enjoyed the art.
Characters-9: There are like 5 characters that is in 90% of the manga. 2 being the main hero and heroine which are pretty kawaii together. Despite Shouta being a wimp(something most nice guys can relate like me)talking to most girls, he progresses to be a MAN at the end! Sana is pretty much the ideal girl of any guy and her greatest secret of why she chose him...not telling. The other three are Shouta's two best friends(or the one he hangs out with the most) Umine and Yoshitaka who helps Shouta with his love life while Yui(aka Nana) is the love triangle n Shouta's ex-crush in primary school. Kotori WAS a b!tch at first but wait till u know her side of the story.
Enjoyment-9: Love the story and art and character...but its frustrating when Kotori showed up and how Shouta always end in a difficult situation/ with no balls til the end. But they didn't distract me much bcuz it was funny and emotional...especially when Nana...u'll have to find out what scene.
Overall-10: If you like rom com-ish mangas and a great ending then this is something you should read despite being axed a little early. Comparing to the one shot version and the serialization....one shot had a great story with the 8 maple leaf but both endings r satisfying. read more
