Wow - you dont want to know how often I already read this Manga.
I love the story and how the characters are getting to know each other - the good and the bad sides. Keita is like a real bad boy while Himari is a good girl that doesnt come along with him.
I absolutely LOVE the style of the art and it motivates me to draw somenthing.. (I literally drew every time after I read the Manga xD)
If you are reading this Manga I can already tell that you will ship those two, even if that annoying Saeki exists that Himari loves so much (thats read more

This was such an amazing story! One of my favorites! I love how the guy always teases the cute, adorable girl. Only problem is maybe that they are in a step family relationship. Other than that, it's amazing! Storyline: Himari returns to her hometown 4 years later, this time with a surprise. Her mom is remmaried! But her step brother is a bully from when they are in primary. What can she do when she finds out they must live together!? This is a must read!!! I would give it...5 complete bright and yellow stars! :3 I don't know read more

Beast Boyfriend seems promising from the looks of the first three chapters. Pacing seems good, characters are a little more 2D than they generally are in Aikawa Saki's stories and I haven't really seen any annoying insecure shoujo stereotypes surfacing their ugly head, so I'm quite a happy camper here!

Who should read this: Dedicated Aikawa Saki fans (for her art), shoujo romance enthusiasts and anyone looking to spend 20 minutes looking at neat art and relive their own high school insecurities or traumas relating to shyness or being teased.

Who should avoid it: Seriously discerning shoujo readers who have no patience for mediocre leads, bullying read more

Sometimes you just want to read a well executed but extremely old trope. That basically summarizes Kedamono Kareshi. Himari and Oogami have known each other since they were kids, and he was always picking on her due to a stereotypical elementary school crush, while Himari is just upset she's getting bullied. They're reunited in high school, and that dynamic hasn't changed, only now of course their single parents have married each other, making them surprise step siblings.

Like I said, the set up is very tropey. There's probably hundreds of similar shoujo manga out there like this. But I feel like the execution on this one read more
