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

This Spin-Off deserves an anime adaptation.

It is my first time to write a review so I'll keep it short. I'm an Utaha fan all the way and this manga was a love-letter to all the Utaha fans out there. Their interactions between Tomoya and Utaha felt genuine to me because of how their relationship develops. The main characters draws their energy/motivation from the passion they receive from others such Tomoya to Utaha or vice versa. This manga shows that if you truly love what you do, you can spread that love to others and it becomes infectious. To end, I'll repeat this once again, read more

I came looking for copper and I found gold.

Yes, I have seen the Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata anime, and of course, wanted more content to the story. As we all know there is unfortunately no available English translation of the original light novels anywhere which is why I decided to read this. Basically, I was only expecting a simple Utaha route, but this manga is so much more than that. This manga gives us a little inside view of everything that happens in the production and creation of the anime that we love to watch, the Light Novels and manga that we love to read, read more

The spin-off feels better than the parent story, and that's already saying something.
I have to give this a high score.
(possible spoilers? nothing too big tho.)

Story: 9
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
