Give Me Love! ( Ai wo Chodai ) is a fun romantic comedy about a young woman in the entertainment industry, who is a comedian herself.
It is tagged as a shoujo but it really is more of a josei since the main characters are all in their 20s and are all working professionals.
She is surrounded by a lot of men who are interested in her and keeps meeting new guys and romantic interests always with a lot of interesting mishaps occurring around her and the guys. Mei has her heart set on one particularly
cold megane guy in the industry who is of course the one who is not interested in her.
The writer does a good job of writing her character, and the characterization is completely given to only certain characters while some of the side characters are not as developed personality wise.
Her character is a little wacky and very upbeat and she is the type of girl who always has strange things happen to her that set her day into humorous tones. Mei is athletic and funny and sort of zany.
The writer does a good job in keeping the story entertaining and light hearted and funny.
The art is very well done in a josei or mature shoujo type style with the artist doing a good job at drawing each character to have a different and distinctive look so you can tell each person apart easily, and making the way the characters are drawn appealing and attractive with good expressions.
The ending is also satisfying and you are not left with that hanging feeling either, at 4 volumes it is a fairly quick read and does not have time to drag it out so it never gets boring.
Overall I would rate it an 8.
Shoujo and Josei readers alike will enjoy the male cast in this reverse harem!
