If you are looking for a shoujo manga with not so slow-pacing romance development between the two people and less dramatic misunderstandings that can lead to a big headache for you as a reader, then I will recommend Ani Tomo to you.
Though this still contains less chapters and still on-going, I find this manga really enjoyable to read.
I did enjoy reading this since there's also comedy in it. As much as I don't want to put some spoilers, it's so funny how the guy keeps on talking about his love interest to his friend in a room while his friend's sibling, who
is the guy's love interest, couldn't avoid to eavesdrop since the wall is so thin. Blame the wall and the guy's mouth. It's fun to read and it's not so cheesy like some typical shoujo mangas. Plus, it's about the journey of two characters as on their newfound romance. You don't have to wait for fifty chapters to see them together finally. The story is sweet and somehow realistic as you read it.
I like the characters. They are all likeable and the main couple are not like some dumb characters there who kept on doing stupid things that can lead to another stupid drama which can ruin your day. They are so cute and sweet but the most appealing here is the girl's brother. He's diabolically handsome and funny especially when he interacts with the main guy's little sister. There's also one character here that gave me some headache. I know the author placed him there for a reason but I do hope the character's gonna change. There are still few chapters and maybe on next chapters, we might see some different sides of the characters. Lookng forward to it.
Total eye candy to our eyes. Since it's shoujo, it's expected to see handsome guys than beautiful and plain heroine. But in Ani Tomo, I was kind of surprise to see a beautiful heroine. I'm not into shoujo but I read some usually are the popular ones. Many main heroines in shoujo mangas have bland or plain looking art style but here Nanase really looks beautiful. So as the guys here. The art style is also clean making it pleasant for the readers.
I assure you that you'll gonna really enjoy this as this is not your typical shoujo stuffs. And over all I give this manga 10! Hope this review will help you.
