Erika Sakura is the school's most popular female high schooler, and only met with envious gazes since she is out of everyone's league. However, she is recently interested in a certain male high schooler who can't read between the lines, Kuzumi. While having a relationship between the two is out of the question, her unrequited love will soon change in this romantic comedy. Follow this new inevitably heart pounding, out-of-contact short love comedy!
This manga is a bit similar to Tomo-chan wa onnanoko and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun.
Honestly, I wasn't really expecting anything from this manga at first. I thought it will be just one of those boring manga or annoying manga with female MC chasing after the guy, but reading this manga made me laugh so much, to the point that I do not even want to stop reading even though it was getting late(3am) but this manga kept me wanting more.
Of course the plot is a bit similar to GSNK with the female lead who have a crush on the male lead who doesn't seem to
be able to read the atmosphere and completely dense, but at least this one have a clear hint of romance. It is actually one of the things that I am looking forward to.
This manga didn't just made me laugh, but it also made me squeal with excitement every time Kuzumi does something cool. lol
I think I have seen some manga characters who looked a lot like Erika...actually I feel like I've seen most characters of this manga in other manga...but the artwork is not messy and it does a good job in making Kuzumi look weird sometimes and look so handsome sometimes.
Erika: is the most popular girl in school, there are always guys wanting to hit on her. But out of all those guys, the one that caught her attention the most is her weird, short and lame classmate Kuzumi who doesn't seem to care about the world. He's always on her mind and her eyes is only set to him, but she doesn't want to accept that she likes him - how could she fall for someone like him? and so she's in constant denial about what she really feel for him.
Kuzumi: The male lead of this series. He's super short and look so weird most of the time. At first, I thought 'he looked retarded' because of his face and the way he act but, the more I look at him,the more attractive he gets (although he looked so young for his age,especially compared to his classmates). He's always doing something weird and he always pops-up anywhere and he's super dense... but is he really dense? does he really not know anything? is everything really just coincidences, destiny?or... was it all planned? There's so much I want to know about him.
My opinion regarding this manga might change in the future and so is, my review and my score. However, this is how I feel for this manga right now.
Personally this manga is like a mix between Horimiya and Handa-kun.
Actually i didn't expect this manga will be good or anything when i first saw this. Back then i only Pick this because i have nothing to read, and thinking this will be another boring manga. But that changed my thought after reading the story. Its funny and hilarious how the female MC chase the Male MC, it made me laugh and it became one of my fav Rom-Com mangas. The Plot is a bit similar to Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun with both female MC who have hopeless crush to the Male
MC. It also like Horimiya because the MC's literally done all the stupid things like Hori did and while the guy's personality is exactly like Handa's. It was enjoyable and it didn't waste my time. It Made me crave for more chapters. What i like also about this story is how Kuzumi so dense but damn when he does cool things, Erika cant help but fall over and over again to Kuzumi! haha
The Characters is simple and very much suited to the story.
but characters like Kuzumi.. i felt like i've seen those characters before. But overall it did a great job! Kuzumi's appearance was what makes me into this manga. Like How Erika look at him ( In Erika's Eyes he looks so handsome which made me laugh. lol)
Kuzumi - The Male Lead of the story. He looks plain doll, short and weird. Doesn't talk much ( Erika only hears his voice TWICE). He has his own world and nobody knows what he is thinking. My first impression to him is like, "another plain character with a weird humor" but that makes me interested to him. Despite his looks and pretty much do weird things he is actually a Cool guy! He is like a mushroom, poops up almost everywhere. lol He look dense but i felt like he actually Smart and can read the atmosphere but chooses to ignore them. Kuzumi's personality is a mystery for me which makes the story interesting.
Erika - The most popular in school, many guys like her, many have confess to her and wanted to hit her. Even the hottest guy in their school likes her but in her eyes she only see's Kuzumi who doesn't seem to care or bother in his surrounding. Kuzumi was always in Erika's mind ever since she met him. She only See's Kuzumi's and always aware of Kuzumi's presence. Although its obvious that she likes Kuzumi a lot but she doesn't want to admit herself that she actually likes him. lol
This Manga is actually great and worth to read. My rating might be differ from the others but i will rate it as much as high cause i did enjoy it. :)
It's gooooddddd and so relaxing.. who knows this could be my life...
BTW this manga had many similarities like :
School Rumble - How to win your love by Tenma
Handa Kun - Like Handa... Sakura is truly a popular student
Tanaka kun - A scary looking delinquent friend but actually a nice person
Gekkan Shoujo - Why could be forgot how oblivious Nozaki and Kuzumi was.. xD
Masamune Kun no Revenge - Even Aki nor Sakura rejects all boys... in the campus
Tonari Seki-kun - This also fits... With a Silent MC
Remember Keep in this Touch.... The way this school romcom... sets up tells how boring your life can be with
amount of sidetrips.. (That could be mean go with the flow as long you enjoy your not so normal youth) :)
I really enjoyed this manga a lot (more than I expected). I stumbled upon this when I was looking for a manga like Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! and I'm really glad I discovered this one.
If you read Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! then you can say the story is kinda like that. Well, not really the same but more like the girl is in love with a dense guy. But this one, the girl is the "in denial" type. It was enjoyable cause it was funny to see the girl's struggles and being in denial that he's in love with the guy but keeps looking/chasing for him anyway
(she's the most popular girl in school btw).
The characters are likable too. The main guy, Kuzumi... I'm actually amazed that he barely said anything in the manga (I think he only spoke 3 times lol) but you will actually like him? And even though he is portrayed as short, boring and lame guy, he can actually look so cool at some point? And I'm really REALLY curious to know what he's really thinking (especially towards the girl). As for the girl, Erika, while she's really funny and cute, it's kinda frustrating sometimes when she's always denying that he likes him so yeah, sometimes I get irritated but not that much cause she's still funny.
I was torn between 8 and 9 for my overall but for now, 8, cause I've only read up to chapter 19. While it left me super hanging and wanted to read more, I feel like things will get more exciting and I hope it won't disappoint me cause so far, I really like it!
