Negishi, a self-proclaimed normal high school girl, is suddenly confessed to by a boy whom she has never met before. Introducing himself as a long time admirer that had finally found the resolve to confess his feelings, Hoshino declares that everything will work out between the two as long as he remains unabashedly honest with her. After denying Hoshino's sudden request for a date, Negishi, bewildered but intrigued with Hoshino's candidness, agrees to walk home with him.

Thus begins the romantic comedy Love Roma, which follows the progressing relationship between Hoshino, who says whatever is on his mind with absolutely no reserve, and Negishi, playing the straight man to the boy's comic persistence of his feelings toward her.

I decided to write my first review to Love Roma because it's a story that captivated me at first sight.
To begin with, Love Roma is a very rare gem in the industry. I'm pretty sure it isn't the best written one, the best drawn one... even I can't say it's an outstanding title between the genre, but its charming is beyond that.

Instead of being a conventional love manga which principal plot is the blossom of love (with the classic love confession almost at the end of story), Love Roma focus on the growth of that love:
"Yeah, these two now ...

At first glance, the art may put you off as it did with me initially. But within the first chapter, I couldn't stop laughing out loud at the interactions between our two MCs and everyone else in their world.

This is definitely more of a comedy to me but the comedy stems from the romance that is developing between our two lovely MCs. It's everything I wanted in a romcom! They explore their differences in a healthy way, develop their relationship despite it and have the most enjoyable group of friends to be around.

I recommend this series highly to romcom readers. You won't go gaga ...

In most romance anime/manga, it can take a pretty long time before the guy/girl asks out the one they love. This of course is the main thrust behind the plot, and the main drive behind the character's actions. Clearly none of them have taken lessons from Love Roma's main character Hoshino, who confesses his love on the first page. In the first speech bubble. ON THE FIRST FRAME.

Love Roma then already starts out unusually compared to your typical romance manga. This isn't a story where the end is the relationship, but rather it is a story about the relationship.

It is hard to define this ...
