Spin-off of the SaeKano novel series focusing on the unlikely relationship between famed author Kasumigaoka Utaha and average otaku Aki Tomoya.

Down in a rut and out of lacking creativity, infatuation develops after a fan-signing for 'Love Metronome' and Aki becomes the estranged "assistant" of one of his school's top idols.

This novel and manga deserves a spin off anime and a lot of Utaha-s fan were screaming in the finale of the manga.

First of all, the characters and its own development mixed and inspired a lot of readers to follow this series until the end. It is more convenient and popular than the original. Personally, its 10 out of 10 more comparable to read and eventually funny to take close till the end.

10.10 in Enjoyment. It's definitely enjoyable and hilarious to make through.

11.10 in Art. Its character illustrations were so original and more comfortable to read more

The spin-off feels better than the parent story, and that's already saying something.
I have to give this a perfect score.

Story: 10
The story is very well written. It has its heart-warming moments, and the pace does not ever once feel rushed or dragged out. The premise may sound very simple, just the typical guy somehow gets acquainted to admirable girl, but the reasons behind their motivations that make this story stand out. Especially with the main push not being on their romance or drama, but the common goal between them, of their goals and dreams of writing the novel and read more

OK, so here we have a spin-off manga of Saekano. Spin-offs normally just feel like a cash grab that are rarely as good as the original, but I believe this one is an exception. This review is written assuming that you've already seen some of the original series, but I do believe this manga can hold up as a stand alone even without seeing/reading Saekano.

Saekano is a harem series, and while it is one of the best harem series I've personally seen it ultimately was not above the tropes that seem to define the genre. To the people that are turned off by harem read more

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata: koisuru Metronome is by far my favorite spin off. I immediately fell in love with this manga after a couple of chapters. I may be biased because I myself am Team Utaha senpai but the story, art, and characters are all enjoyable. As for the story, it is nothing special, the main MC is now an editor of Utaha and the story is about them two working together to make Utaha senpai rise to the top. The story may be plain but the way the story is portrayed and the development of the characters makes the seemingly boring story read more
