Synopsis

It's not easy being beautiful. The envy, the jealousy, the vicious rumors spread by your best friend. That's life for young Momo. While everyone thinks that Momo is a wild party girl, the reality is that she is shy and lonely. Can Momo confess her love to her classmate, Toji, or will her best friend Sae steal him away. It's a bittersweet drama of growing up and fitting in that will charm readers everywhere.

Back in April, I had went to the library to look at their manga selection. I ended up getting the first volume of "Peach Girl" to see if I'd like it. The premise of a girl with blonde hair and tan skin didn't seem that interesting to me. I was pleasantly surprised, and hooked ever since then.

Story: Rather than having a really thick plot, "Peach Girl" mostly follows the complications in the love life of the main character, Momo. And believe me, there are LOTS of complications. It can be overdramatic at times though, and a bit unrealistic too. However, the story is quite read more

This manga is a must read for all romance lovers! This manga has a fantastic story line and it is very compelling. You'll fall in love with the characters, and hate the others making it an amazing manga. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll want to punch Sae over and over again. The only thing I don't like about this manga is how the mouths are drawn, but that is no reason to not read this manga. So what are you waiting for go read this!

I remember the first time I read this manga, I was about 10 years old. I thought it was brilliant and hilarious, and loved every panel of it. But after reading it now, I can see so many flaws in not only the storyline, but also the characters.

The story itself is a unique idea, but is poorly executed. Most of the chapters consist of Momo complaining about how people view her as a slut and isolate her because of her tan skin. Not only is this highly unrealistic, but brought to the utmost extreme. Let me explain what I mean.

Most people might think of her read more

My reviews are horrible, so don't hold anything to me. I just want to point out my final thoughts on a manga when I review it.

This was a good story, had good art, and decent characters. But while I rate it high, I really didn't enjoy it too much. But that's because it's pretty dramatic the entire time, and when things are depressing, I feel depressed too. And the depressing portions of the story really outweigh the light-hearted moments.

Though overall, based on the ending, you can call this Manga a Happy story. At least in the same way that the read more
