"Aishiteru", Uso dakedo. was honestly very disturbing. The plot wasn't that great in fact not great at all, And the characters were sort of disturbing I did understand the main girl a little bit but the guy was just completely twisted and it made my stomach hurt like the amount of toxicity in that relationship is not something i even want to imagine irl, He was treating her like a object in his possession and it was just very twisted, If you're looking for a love story that's cute and heart warming this ain't it chief. It was very cute in the beginning for a
bit, Cool guy falls for the "plain" girl but it just turned really dark and just stopped being my cup of tea.
I'd rate it 3/10 tbh
"Majou wa Geboku ni Koi wo Suru" was honestly pretty cute~ Overall i enjoyed reading it so 9/10. A 100% my cup of tea~ It was just very sweet and lovely.
("Aishiteru", Uso dakedo. is also the review rating)

Art: 8/10 I really enjoyed the art
Characters: 7/10 they weren't super unique but i liked them~
This is a tolerable one-shot. It's a cliche plotline, but it's stomachable. Almost sweet. You're really sort of rooting for them. I mean, she's a judgemental freak, and the fact that a popular, nice guy would care about this plain girl remains to be seen. But, hey. A ton of shoujo manga doesn't make sense. So, yeah, it was okay. Until the end.
He ruins her life. He ACTUALLY ruins it, publishing her secret, horrible journal type thingy for everyone to see. Everyone hates her for it (Who could LIKE a girl who does that anyway? But that's besides the point). What he did was abusive
on SO many levels. Controlling, disturbing, and creepy to the HIGHEST degree. It's akin to breaking her legs so she can't walk out the door. HOW is that romantic, to make everyone hate her so that nobody will like her but him? So. Flippin'. Creepy.
I mean, yeah. A ton of romance bends moral rules just for the sake of angst, for the sake of plot. But there are some messages that shouldn't be sent. It is NOT okay for a guy to do that to somebody he likes. That is ABUSIVE and shows a COMPLETE lack of respect and twists love into something hideous. If it had been me, I would have run screaming. He's horrible. Repulsive. Disgusting. Things like possessiveness and jealousy are NOT attractive or acceptable things in a relationship. These emotions are destructive and poisonous and above all shameful, not cute or romantic. If a guy is jealous, yeah, it means he likes you a lot. But it also means he doesn't trust you, which is the fundamental building block of relationships.
