Lovesick Ellie
Volume 1


At school, Eriko Ichimura is a nobody. She looks plain, and her classmates overlook her existence until they need to dump their responsibilities on her. On Twitter, however, she is "Lovesick Ellie," a girl with a vivid imagination who writes posts inspired by her fantasies. Akira Oomi, the object of her fantasies, is the most attractive boy in her school, and everything about him seems to be perfect.

Eriko's fantasies take a hit when she accidentally eavesdrops on a conversation between Akira and their homeroom teacher. His true nature is laid bare—he is, in fact, a foul-mouthed and insensitive snob. But when she clumsily forgets her phone at the scene, Akira himself approaches her to return it; however, he has already skimmed through her embarrassing Twitter posts. What Eriko does not expect is him offering to help her realize her fantasies—but only if she stays silent regarding his character.

Trouble seems to follow Eriko wherever she goes, and her luck is absolutely the worst... or is it?

absolutely underrated manga! i never enjoyed a manga as much as this one before. it was wholesome but not too boring and also hilarious to read.

the main character eriko aka ellie is a pervert but lovable and just overall a funny character. i loved her character and how she and the ML ohmi grew closer and closer through out the whole manga. their (spoiler) relationship was so cute and the story included the stages of a relationship and the issues they had to deal with but overcame together. the artstyle is so pretty too and im surprised how many people ik havent heard of read more

I want to start this review by stating that I personally think that this is one of the best shoujo manga to come out in recent years. It's not the most unique manga in the demographic, nor is it free from its troupes and cliches, but I found myself enjoying it despite that.

-Story: 8/10-
Most of the synopses out there make this manga sound super perverted, but trust me, it's not. The relationship between the two, while off to a rocky start, was cute, and the story was enjoyable overall.

-Art: 7/10-
The art is very typical for a shoujo, but it's still visually pleasing.

-Character: 7/10-

this manga is what i would expect from most shojou-romace mangas, lots of cute romantic moments (and i love them all<3), the difference between this and others are the 'drama', it doesn't have serious drama, which makes this more entertaining(adding unwanted drama to this mixture would have made it a mediocre work, but now it turned out to be great). the moments they share are too cute that one cannot stop grinning like an idiot. there are few other characters who make appearances later on.

i never knew i would use this term, but yeah this manga would be my definition of 'moe'(mangaka, look what you read more

How do I describe this manga? It’s a manga that is extremely fun to read, even though on the surface it looks boring. It had an intriguing plot when it was supposed to be a boring one. So I guess I would describe this manga as way better than it has any right to be. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we?

Story: 8

I was actually not sure where to score this section. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise to long time shoujo fans that the story is fairly standard. Unpopular girl falls for heartthrob of the School, yadda yadda, you get the read more
