I remember the premise of this manga very well, but why does Tomo-chan sound like she's a girl dressed as a guy?



The whole point of this manga is that it's one of the best incarnations of a straight romantic comedy with an ikemen onna character.


Both of Romantic Killer and Tomo chan have Rieri as main chara, so that why you called that both anime have same story and vibes


I don't remember Romantic Killer's MC being ikemen onna or Rieri being so androgynous in her voice.

I love tomboys. They’re my kind of women. I would totally go out with one. I also can’t wait for the anime next year.
