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

I have to give this a high score.

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

I'll write a short, spoiler-free review and my thoughts just after finishing it here:
Aki Tomoya, in this spin-off, instead of making a game, becomes an editor of Kasumi Utaha instead. This is a romance story instead of the harem parent story, between Tomoya and Kasumigaoka. It also tells us more about Kasamigaoka Utaha - although she still is as invective as before we come to know more about her personality and her insecurities in detail.
Secondly, I do not agree with people saying this spin-off is better than original story since the original read more
