Synopsis

Rather than a prince and a princess living happily ever after together, it is much more appealing to see a prince and a prince fall in love.

Believing in this wholeheartedly, Kae Serinuma is an overweight second-year high school girl who spends her days obsessing over fictional boys and fantasizing about men being in love with each other. In particular, she ships her male classmates Nozomu Nanashima and Yuusuke Igarashi—in her mind, every interaction they have hints at their romance. However, Kae's entire world is turned upside down when her favorite anime character dies. Heartbroken, she locks herself in her room and cuts off all contact from society. When she finally emerges a week later, she has slimmed down to have become a radiant beauty!

Now, all the boys that Kae was content with watching from afar are suddenly pursuing her—the only problem is, Kae wants no part in it! She would much rather they kiss each other, not her. In the battle for her heart, Kae ensnares the boys in her wild fantasies and exposes them to the true nature of a fujoshi's world.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

I think this manga balanced romance, and drama really well. Characters were generally well developed, with a light touch. The cast mostly focuses on our protagonist Serinuma Kae, and her suitors. Each of them had interesting backstories, hobbies, and approaches to romance.

It read like a standard shoujo romance, and asked why characters love, or appreciate each other. Is it appearance, or something else? This manga takes the time to explore it. The use of an otaku leading character was also useful, as the author made use of her hobbies and Kae's obsession with her favourite character to explore the dynamics between fiction, and reality.

Let me start this review with the problematics: As a fat person, I often search for things with my representation. Unironically, it's hard to find a piece of media that focuses on an overweight female, but occasionally I come across stuff like Kiss Him, Not Me. At first, I was very excited to begin reading, this seemed right up my alley! But...

The beginning of the story is pretty fatphobic.

Let me introduce you to the characters:
- **Serinuma**, the MC, who actually doesn't give 2 SHITS about her own appearance so that's REALLY COOL. She's a fujoshi, so all that she cares about (REALLY) is... two guys read more

BL author Junko tries out shoujo. As of now only 2 english chapters are out (3rd is in chinese), so there's not much, but I still want to review it.

Story (6) - The story is about an overweight fujoshi (BL lover) who one day loses all her weight by not eating while grieving over her favorite character's death. Not very realistic, but hey it's shoujo. Now that she's pretty every hot boy in school comes out of the woodwork to try and get in her pants; except for one, who is my favorite, and was her friend from the start.

Ok so this is a review so there's gonna be some good and bad and its one of my first so.. you know go easy on me plus this is only based off the first two chapters which says a lot as a whole
well Im mostly summarizing since I noticed there aren't any reviews and I usually hate when there aren't any because I want to hear how the story is from another viewpoint before I waste my time with something I don't really like so Im not going into great detail.

So the story is and isn't a cliche and I'll explain why. Our mc read more
