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.

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

“Wow, this was really good.”

– That's what I thought after finishing the last chapter.

I’m a shipper alright. On top of that, I’m also a simple person, so I usually ship the girl with the first guy to appear. This manga, however, despite providing five possible love interests for the main heroin, didn’t make me ship, strangely enough.

I liked all the boyfriend/girlfriend candidates, they were all unique and all funny in their way. Sure, when Kae had moments with Igarashi, it felt wrong (i'm sorry, Yuusuke). I immediately fell in love with Mutsumi-senpai, because he always cared for Kae, always put her first and didn’t care, read more

Let's start with the cons since it's more fun that way! This story begins with its fair share of fatphobia. Serinuma is an overweight girl who ends up rapidly losing weight, sparking a bunch of guys to suddenly become interested in her. She gains and loses weight on a crazy scale, and this comes up a few times, the first of which has the others forcing her on a diet so she'll become "cute" again. Some of the love interests grow past this (or were never concerned with her weight in the first place) while others don't. So! It's worth noting that if this would read more

I came to this after watching the anime, which only goes up to about chapter 30~. Let's go by categories and hopefully this will help you figure out whether this is the manga for you!

Art:
the art is stunning! Everything is well made and draws you in. If art style is important to you, this manga will not disappoint!

Characters and Plot:
The characters, unfortunately, aren't anything too special. They all can fall into certain categories, but they do have developments that get you more attached read more
