Fumihiko Matsumaru, a single 26-year-old average salaryman, invited a girl to the movies but was stood up. Right at the moment he was about to toss his tickets into the trash, a cute girl appeared and asked him not to waste them. After movie and dinner, he escorted her home, only to find her apartment was burning. Having nowhere else to stay, 20-year-old rookie seiyuu Aka Onda moved into Matsumaru's place, and the two started a "more than friends but not yet lovers" relationship under the same roof—with many obstacles waiting for them.

REC is a relaxed romance manga about a salaryman and a aspiring anime voice actress. There is some comedy, drama, and the manga is a bit mature.

Story 6 - The story wasn't very what's the word... PAZZAZZ. Seriously. The story is pretty boring. The biggest jump in the story in my opinion is the fact that these two love birds meet each other after a fire at the girl's apartment. The story is seriously boring. I mean it's not like dead retarded boring. But don't expect to laugh or cry. I basically read this whole thing with a straight face. The one thing that is read more

REC is a hard manga to review... It really is hard to place why i even like this manga. It definitely has a lot of problems, and it isn't exactly breaking boundaries in an attempt to be original (although its not exactly main stream). But for some reason I can't entirely explain, I do quite enjoy this manga for the most part.

The story is a pretty simple man woman affair, only now about a lowly salary worker and a voice actress who is only just starting her career. It really is nothing special, the comedy is pretty decent with a lot of that classic ecchi read more

I'm surprised that no one has ever reviewed this manga yet.
I don't want to be the bad guy here, but this is one of the WORST MANGA OF ALL TIME.
Let me break this down for you guys.

To start off, the story talks about a lonely and gullible salary man, who took a random girl in, because she lost her home due to a fire. From there, they start to get closer and closer together, while going through many hardships of everyday life. With a simple slice of life, this manga contains light hearted sex and rape.

Plot - 5/10

At a glance, this manga might seem a read more

Rec, this manga.........

Story I felt scored a 7, if not a 8.
The story starts off as you guys know as two people being more than friends but less than lovers. The story is nicely atoned as the two develop their relationship. There are parts where....... ARGHHHHHH.
Ch24 REALLLY REALLY MADE ME MAD!!! =( . Many say that they "penetrated" but at the same time as many people said that they didn't. I'd really like to believe that they didn't.
Anyway the mishap on chapter 24 in any means really strengthened their relationship.
At the start of the story, I really enjoyed their development read more
