Kare wa Tomodachi is probably one of the most amazing mangas I've ever read in my whole life. Why? Let me tell you.

First: STORY
The story is something every teenager (which is most manga readers) can understand. It doesn't run around the bush but instead, it goes straight to the point. "I like you." that isn't really hard to understand, right?

I have to say that this story's plot was unexpected, yet rather DISSAPOINTING for a guy like me reading this.
