Nozomi Aizawa has kept her feelings for her schoolmate Azuma a secret for quite a while, but the time has come for her to finally confess. His response, though, is far from ordinary! Led in circles by his hilarious tangents, these two awkward teenagers find themselves growing ever closer while muddling through misunderstandings and off-topic rants. When the airheaded stalker Aizawa finally connects with the petulant know-it-all Azuma, the result is a romantic comedy worth talking about!
An unusual love story between student-student relationship. About a girl suddenly confessed to a boy in the train station. That’s it? No.
I have read many shit shoujo mangas out here. This one has really interesting premise. It has quite simple environment set up, everyday school life story but well-build as a whole and more complex.
In few first chapters, the setting located in the train station. I can say that the train station used as basic/starting line to build up some necessary point then changed to school which is become the environment I like so far.
Main selling, and major point in this manga is,
how the characters know each other by using conversations between them.
It really is rare to see there is a shoujo manga which can slowly-but-sure shows thoroughly relationship development. Mostly used ‘dreamy’ situation where the girl stupidly ridiculous fall in love with someone else. A little bit unrealistic. And this manga gives you another point of view.
What are they talking about? The topic is ordinary. For example : why girl is always like this and that? Is it true that boy like this and that? Etc. It supports to develop and shortened their gaps. As for previously thing I said, underlined the word ‘more complex’, it’s still not something you should to take it seriously. It flows well and you can follow what they are talking about.
And what’s more make it interesting, the main character is very honest and blunt. This side of view, you can’t see even in reality itself where you can openly express what were you thinking. And even if they are so blunt, they can accidentally create awkward situation, and sometimes there is unexpected outcome because their actions which I found it cute and made me ‘oh, it still has usual shoujo manga points’ and ridiculously amusing.
And about the events or their progress in overall, it really is cute. With the opportunity of their self-awareness side, you can see they always do self-monologue to reacts each other and they are getting closer little by little.
Last, I can’t see there is complain about the art. The art inexcusably really beautiful. And for me, this manga more interesting and better than her previous works, “Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun”.
I really can't say much as so far, only 2 chapters have been scanlated. But, I just had to talk about this. This manga is a comeback from Robiko, the author of the wonderful Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun and I have to say, this new manga is very promising. First of all, its premise is balls-to-the-wall hilarious! With just the first two chapters, you will already find yourself laughing. The characters' banter is great and there is so much for this manga to develop. I am so excited for how it will turn out, and I am expecting a lot since Robiko is one of my
favorite authors. The thing with her is that her art is what makes her works shine. They are so, very beautiful, you wouldn't regret it.
This manga reminds me of Bakemonogatari. Reading it is like reading the anime, especially the two firsts chapters: there is a talk. Just a talk between two diferent characters that are so well done, their points of view are so diferent that its interesting. How is a man? How is a woman? What con I do to please people?
After the 3rd chapter to 8th there is still talk and more character but there are less of that Bakemonogataris essence.
Changing the subject, there is the art. I have no problem with the art, it is good, the characters are very expressive and the art in
general is dynamic.
Well, i enjoyed reading those 8 chapters that are translated to date.
It's been an endless journey for me, trying to look for a romance story that doesn't merely begin with falling in love at first sight. As an avid romance fan, I agree that kind of start always make a great storyline however it's not realistic for me. I can't imagine falling over someone just cause of a single moment.
This manga enters - it takes that typical trope of meeting someone treating the lady MC a little bit differently than rest for her to take notice of him, and spin a unique story out of it. What results out of it is nothing really out
of the ordinary, but a genuine story about how a relationship can develop following that first introduction to someone you are interested in.
The girl confesses to the boy she likes in the first chapter by striking up an unusual conversation. The boy goes along with it and a relationship forms. It's not even a special relationship - they seem more like friends. Two people enjoying each other's company, which is the greatest part. More often that not, we have two people in love with each other without actually getting to know each other at all and that frustrates me. But this manga - the two MCs actually spend time with each other as friends. They may not agree on everything, but they reach a compromise for every argument. Both of them have their own group of friends, who can see their relationship blossoming. So far, there's no unnecessary drama for the sake of drama. Life continues as normal, but that's the main attraction.
The girl doesn't try to become the guy's ideal, the guy doesn't try to impress the girl (....yet). They're honest with each other most of the time, trying to figure out each other's thoughts in the process because they are truly interested in getting to know each other. There are many things that is yet to be explored, especially with a newly formed loveline with the background characters. Honestly, if you're looking for a romance manga which takes a slightly more mature approach to relationships, this will be your cup of tea.
