When reading about romance, readers expect to see romance; that much is obvious. When reading about comedy, readers expect to see comedy; that much is obvious. When these two genres combine into a single story, people expect it to be endearing, especially when the romance is between two younger people of society. With as much pressure as one is to withstand with this type of combination, it's a wonder why any writer would want to combat a monster such as this. Onidere is one of these monsters. Onidere is a manga that tries its best at combining a typical plotline with blueprint characters involved in read more

guy who is soft, girl who is delinquent, they date, its a secret, hijinks ensue... that sums the whole thing up.

story wise, don't look for anything substantial.
the art fits the story better than anything else they could have done
the characters, are interesting... they have some amount of depth and evolution considering this manga is presented in a step above 4 panel gag manga.

but my enjoyment of this manga hinges on the fast that i love go nowhere gag manga stories, so long as they aren't things like bobobo bobo bobobobo

I am not one to rain on someone’s parade but….. this manga was God-awful. Yes I did finish it after dropping it a few times, but what an awful waste of time.

Not only did the characters show no growth, but they were completely one sided. I was trying to figure if maybe I don’t fall in the target audience but there were too many sexual innuendos and too many girl on girl references /suggestive activity for read more

This manga has a decent plot and some solid characters, but it seems to get bogged down by a number of issues. The first is that there are a bunch of sub plots that don’t seem to advance things in any meaningful way. I suppose that the intention was that the comedy would be enough to support these, however the comedy starts getting somewhat repetitive as it goes on, so it isn’t enough. In addition, while I think the story of the main couple was quite good, with good character development and great relationship development, and the various things surrounding this relationship such as Saki read more
