Everyone thinks 16-year-old Ryouko has weird taste in guys because she can't stop drooling over Ryuu, the strong silent type who sits next to her in class. When she discovers he works for a host club—where women actually pay men to date them—will she finally wise up? Or will he leave his job to be with her? Or will she take a job at the club so he can quit so she can be with him so...? Only one thing's for sure in B.O.D.Y.—you can't put a price on love!

First of all, B.O.D.Y. was one of those mangas that I was never planning on reading. But one of my friends shoved it in my face and told me to at least try it. And once I started reading it I just could not put it down.

STORY: At first the story started out like all the others. Girl falls in love with boy. Boy likes girl but there are problems with their relationship. But then, this story took off and became very interesting. More characters were introduced and surprising things happened that you would not expect. Cheating, lying, laughing, crying... the characters made the story read more

The story sounded good enough in the summary so i picked it up. A girl who falls for a boy who is at first seems like a good shy boy but actually it's all for appearance and he's working as a host after school.
But this is all. Just an interesting concept. After this is all used in the first volumes your left with a very typical boring to death story. About all kinds of love rivals and exams and typical things. Nothing really new. This manga even not trying to refresh something. And no, to take the typical settings for shoujo and put read more

I found this manga on MAL and it seemed interesting. I've been reading manga for years and just recently I've turned to MAL to find new ones.

I really wanted to like this story to be honest, but I hate Fuji. I straight up hate his character. I'm a fan of the whole scarred past, and the bad boy thing still I can't make myself like him.
He's immature, both characters fall in love way to quickly to be realistic and it seems from the very beginning that she is wrapped around his finger and will just blindly follow him anywhere. (think Naruto to Sakura, and read more
