Meet Kuromine Asahi, "the man who can't lie." On the way home, he learns an important secret. His crush, Shiragami Youko, is actually a vampire! Can Asahi actually keep her secret?

I came to this manga with almost no expectation, after seeing the vampire wings, the school life tag and the harem tag (yes, I did expect Rosario Vampire: The Reboot). But lucky, it's not. It was amazing.
The art style might not suit you because the author made their eyes look like the cast of E.T. 2: Home of the Ayy Lmao. But somehow, it perfectly suits the characters.
All the characters were nicely developed with nice depth and were (kinda) relateable. Which made this one of the few rare manga that I wanted to have a harem ending. But we won't talk about that.
Ps: the anime read more

Normally I wouldn't recommend something that could be classified as a harem style manga (I like several but I know they aren't some people's cup of tea) but with this I am willing to make an exception.

If you like comedy in your stuff, then you owe it to yourself to check this out. As with most things the first few chapters may seem a little shaky at first but stick with it, IT'S WORTH IT!

The characters all develop very well and are highly unique and the author uses all of them hilariously. My personal favorite character in the manga is the closest thing to read more

Would you be able to keep your crush's biggest secret from everyone knowing that you are the most honest person in the world?

MAL's summary of Jitsu wa Watashi wa might put off many readers because it implies it is just another "My crush is a vampire and I have to keep it a secret from everyone in school" but it is more than that. In fact, that only describes the first 3 chapters or so, which reminds me of the phrase "don't judge a book by it's cover".

After Kuromine, Asahi(our main character) finds out about Youko's vampire secret, Asahi goes through many absurd and hilarious read more

Jitsu wa Watashi wa starts of with Kuromine Asahi, a man who is unable to lie properly without being caught. One day he learns about his crush's secret and tries to keep it a secret from everyone else or at least that's how it starts off.

As more and more whacky characters are introduced it moves away from it's original premise to become one of the funniest manga I have personally read. With ridiculous twists, turns and more secrets revealed that Kuromine desperately (and comically) tries to protect.

However the series does often have filler that doesn't feel like it adds anything to the overall story. read more
