A Kiss, For Real
Volume 1


"I can't be loved for who I am—that's what I thought, but somehow he saw through my lies?!"

Chitose has always done well wearing her face like a mask: always smiling, always cute. She feels complete whenever she put it on because it's built to hide her unrefined self: no one hates her, and no one makes fun of her. But after meeting a cute boy who is instinctively more annoyed by her mask than her real self, can Chitose change and make people accept her for who she really is?

Sekirara ni Kiss has been published in English as A Kiss, For Real by Kodansha Comics USA.

I had to reread this manga before making a review because I couldn't remember if I finished it or not, haha! Let's get right into the basics.

Story; Nanjou Chitose, a young high-school girl who believes if you aren't loved by everyone then you must be hated by them. So to protect herself from being hated, she created a perfect "mask" that she began to use around everybody (even her own family) that way they wouldn't hate her. On her way to buy groceries for her parents, a young hunk of a man named Kinosuke Itsuke told her a man was trying to take pictures of read more

Sekirara ni Kiss is a love story revolving around two characters and their relationship with one another (just like every romance) As someone who enjoys reading teen fiction, this is a cliche mess that I enjoyed. The story isn't a web of complex plot elements, nor is it something that a person would enjoy if he/she is into emotional romances, heavy dramas or interesting multi-dimensional characters. Instead, it is simply a romance where the side-characters aren't given a thought to. Granted, I haven't read all chapters (I'm waiting for them to be translated.) but for the 12 chapters that I have read, the story is read more

I dropped this after 21 or 22 chapters.

Story: 3/10
The premise of the story is interesting. In any case, it has so much potential. But that went downhill with how Yui's character as the older brother in the story was used. I would rather he's not Kinosuke's brother but nope. Even Chitose and Kinosuke were both 1-dimensional in my opinion. Their actions and thought process were rather disturbing especially Yui and made me drop this story.
Art: 6/10
The art is good. But it isn't the kind that would leave a mark on my mind. If that makes sense? I can remember the story after some time but read more

For someone who rates everything 7 and up, something really has to downright terrible to get such a low score.

List of things that were awful in this manga (I dropped it after 22 chpaters)-

1) The female MC bases her decisions around the other Mc(her love interest) which just shows how delusional and weak she is as a character.

2) This manga has drama which is typical to any shojo manga (love triangle, trauma, childhood friend resurafces, yk what i mean) but it does an awful job using these elements in pushing the story forward.

3) All the characters are annoying as hell. The manga read more
