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 ...

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-
The main ...

Literally one of the best high school romcoms I have ever read.

It has one of my all time favorite couples that are so sweet, and wholesome (well mostly hehe), while also being very realistic and grounded.

The comedy is top tier too! It's not that often that I find myself actually laughing at loud at a manga (maybe I just haven't found the right ones?). And most of the comedy comes from the titular Ellie. She's so over-the-top and ridiculous (and soooooo pervy lmao), and even occasionally breaks the fourth wall, it's amazing.

Other than the main couple (that I just adore), the side cast is really ...
