Meet Kageno, the super dull, glasses-wearing, short first year high school girl. She has no friends and envies people who are enjoying their youth. Meet Mitsunaga Youta, the most popular, handsome guy in school. Girls constantly confesses their love to him, but he has no plans of dating anyone. After a string of events, he decides to ask Kageno to be his fake girlfriend for a month in order to stop the girls from confessing to him in exchange for his friendship. How will Kageno face all the ordeal that is about to come.

This is the beginning of a love comedy between the school idol and the negative girl.

Before we get started, I want to say one thing: if you have low self-esteem or are struggling with depression, social anxiety, or anything similar: this is the worst manga to take lessons from.
Horribly cliche. LOTS of wish fulfillment. The only thing new is that the MC is much more pathetic than usual. Kageno is bullied unrealistically, and can't stand up for herself. At ALL.
She needs the cliche "handsome popular guy" to help her out, and takes things the wrong way. (People who read chapter 8 know what I'm talking about.)
The love interest is so cliche and perfect, and of course he falls read more

I somehow managed to buy 8 volumes of it. "But you gave it 7 as an overall score...", lol, yeah.

Story: 7
Nothing really special about the story. You can almost tell where the stories will go 'cause, yeah, it's a pretty generic shoujo.

Art: 7
Since I never really cared about artstyles, for me the art is okay. But it may be kind of boring for people who expect to see some new, eye-catching artstyle.

Character: 7
As you may have read from the synopsis, Our mc Kageno is a dull, gloomy, and awkward character. Reading it so far (vol 8), I can definitely see a change in her character read more
