Synopsis

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!

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

B.O.D.Y I got a long time ago and the first 3 or 5 books were awesome ! It's pretty cool about a girl who ends up with a savvy boy name Ryu but she is never sure if he is acting or actually loves her because he is a host ! The drawings are great and the book has a great story. But the one prob I have with it is after the 4th book or something it seemed repetitive and boring. Though I kept buying book after book to see if maybe something big will happen. So far no :P I'm not sure if read more

B.O.D.Y. wasn't what I was expecting from the synopsis. Not at all. The story was put together really well. Every thing flowed together as one, there were no choppy points where one was left going "hmm.. what did I miss here." Which is wonderful. It has growth, complication, laughter, tears, a twist here and there and a well done ending, which to me can make or break a manga.

The characters were great with a good depth to them. They weren't super deep to the point were you had to take notes, and they weren't shallow. They were kids learning about life, love and heart break. read more

Preliminary
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
