Real Girl
Volume 1


Tsutsui Hikari is an otaku, and he mostly avoids social life. Hikari has only one friend at school, who is also a social misfit, and he is mocked brutally by most of his classmates for being creepy and weird. One day, he ends up having to clean the school pool with Igarashi Iroha, who appears to be pretty much everything he hates in real-life girls. She skips school, has a blunt manner, doesn't have female friends, and seems the sort to be promiscuous. However, she is friendly to Hikari, and even stands up to the people who make fun of him. Hikari's bitterness and trust issues lead him to say pretty harsh things to Iroha, but she never dismisses him as creepy. After a while, it starts to look like Iroha may become his first real-life, 3D girlfriend! Will he be able to handle it?

When it comes to romance stories, authors often opt for a plot-driven story instead of a character-driven one. What this often leads to is the creation of fairly forgettable and shallow characters with personalities that don't spread out in a more human fashion. This is especially true for high-school romance dramas.

However, people often forget that what works best for a romance drama is a character-driven story. Without going much into the depth of the internal conflicts of a character, it is easy to not find emotions to attach to a character. And this is a very essential device that an author must use read more

3D kanojo was a series that had me excited from seeing the first few episodes of the anime,with an initial impression of a budding romance between two young high schoolers that would develop into something different from many of the other romance manga. Sadly, that was not meant to be.
Between hashed over cliches that only served to introduce mostly useless characters that the story could've have done without, you have a couple that you actually want to root for. Tsutsui and Iroha were people that were interesting to learn about, albeit sometimes frustrating to watch over. However, finding their sections after read more

So we have 3D Kanojo-Real Girl . What seems to be another typical shoujo manga (which it kinda is) does indeed do some things a lot better than others.
The story is character based and revolves around a third year high schooler boy otaku who is , well your typical otaku he does all night anime watching , reads lots of manga , plays lot's of games and so on.
And his counterpart is a strange and beautiful girl who somehow comes to like him.
Since I don't wanna spoil anything that's all the story you get but keep in mind that the ending seems a read more

I wonder why there are no reviews for such a good manga as 3d Kanojo. I am actually not really good at writing reviews, but this manga deserves one, even if it is a short one.
The story starts by presenting tsutsui, a gloomy otaku who happens to hate 3d girls (real girls, if you are not familiar with the concept) and he himself is despised by the girls around him and classmates in general. But Tsutsui's life changes when he encounters Iroha, a beauty with a seemingly bad temper.
I am not totally sure about how original the plot is, but I have read more
