Watami Meguru pleaded to his mom to let him move out on his own to experience being independent. She finally agrees to let Meguru rent out a room for the summer. But his sadistic mother makes the wall between him and his neighbor out of glass, meaning there is no privacy between the two rooms. If living openly with a stranger wasn’t insane enough, his neighbor is a cute girl his age, Kana. They immediately get off on the wrong foot and this isn’t what Meguru imagined it would be like at all.

A short and sweet romantic story that makes your jawbones hurt from smiling, what could possibly compare?

A very original twist to the "boy meets girl" template, this time with our protagonist living next to the heroine, with a glass window separating between them instead of a wall.

Have your curiosity peaked from this brief summary? or are you still skeptical? For those of you who are still with me, allow me to elaborate on some of this story's strong points:

The story: Is consistent, coherent, well-paced, well executed piece. No complaints whatsoever. No plot holes, no useless fan-service, no bullshit. Nothing too fast or too read more

If you're looking for a cute romance manga, then you should read Senakagurashi.

The story has a clear destination, there's no beating around the bush of any sort.

The art is very good, I personally like the art style.

The Characters weren't generic and they weren't boring (especially the main guy).

I don't really have words to describe how good this manga was (without spoilers anyway), all I know is that when I saw the average rating of this manga a 7.6 here, I just knew that I had to step in and put a review. This manga made me grin a lot from the pure cute/romance that it read more

In a teenage love story, of course they are living together. At least the execution is good. On the bright side, you will forget about this story once you are done, so you can enjoy it a second time.

Story: 6
A young man moves out to live on his own for the summer, and ends up living with a cute girl. The only thing not cliche about the set up is the fact they basically share a room separated by frosted glass. The story is nothing new, going through the typical misunderstandings and falling in love. However, where this story excels is execution, which is what read more

So, The rooms with a glass separating them is kinda good concept. At the start the interactions between the two feels like how most of us go through during first or second grade at school with the opposite sex. At first the main character is comes off as very dense but soon we get to know why he is so. Due to him growing up in a house comprised only of women he is overwhelmed easily and develops kind of a phobia of women (gynophobia) and at school as well he acts kinda sus around women so he doesn't really have and experience with taking read more
