Kiss Him, Not Me
Volume 1


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

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'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
