Natsuki, an otaku high-school girl who'd much rather spend her money on manga than pretty dresses, accidentally injures a creepy-looking mangaka Kiritani Taichi. To repay him, she agrees to be his character model until he fully heals. Kiritani-san turns out to be popular shoujo mangaka Ichijou Kiriko, who is also Natsuki's favourite author! What will become of these two?

"...Yes, just like you, someone with no chest or curves. IT HAS TO BE A SUPER PLAIN GIRL!"

HOUKAGO X PONYTAIL is a very cute manga. The protagonist, Natsuki, is a otaku. Instead of buying nice clothes and makeup, she spends her money on manga. Natsuki accidently injures a disheveled looking man (Taichi), that she randomly met on the street. It turns out that he is a shoujo mangaka, lot only that, but Natsuki's favorite author, Ichijou Kiriko. Not only that, but Taichi is actually a really handsome man! Taichi requests Natsuki to be his character read more

It is a very predictable story but it's good if you don't expect much or just wanna read a shoujo manga that won't take your time. Because it is so short the relationship between the two main characters change within one chapter so the character deveopment is not that great. Tropes make a big part of this manga such as cute girl who doesn't care about boys or cute clothes, male lead looking like a pervert but is actually handsome after only cutting hair, girl falling in love with the mangaka for no reason, sudden appearance of a rival male, old man treating the girl read more

This story is very simple and short - a high school girl and an older man begin their romantic lives...except the story doesn't really focus on that at all. Despite the character's having their defining traits at the beginning, their hardly ever brought up again. The two main characters are the only people that mater within the story and the others are just plot devices that aren't properly fleshed out. Every shoujo cliche is present here and because it is so short, I found it very rushed as well.

The only good thing I can say is that the art style is good, but other than read more

Yes, this is us...the shut-in otakus. Imagine suddenly meeting your favourite mangaka and falling for him ,yep thats what the story is. This story is so simple and thats what makes it special.

The story is really cute and easy to relate. Like the art is amazing, the characters are lovable and the plot line is interesting! This manga has only 6 chapters but i never felt once the need of more chapters, yk quality > quantity haha. Its so cute and wholesome that before i realise i ended up smiling at the screen all the time. So i think, those who like short but read more
