Alcestic (All reviews)
I'm not a big fan of shoujo manga, shoujo anime, or romance in general. I think this is the 3rd shoujo/romance thing I've read/watched But for some strange reason, I thought Kakugo wa Iika Soko no Joshi was really, really cute.

This is the story of a delusional ikeman (basically a cool, popular, handsome guy) that goes hella batshit after this chick rejects him. Your the first few pages, you're probably not going to feel sorry for Furuya Towa. He's just a popular boy who shuts down after he realizes that, no! You cannot have everything you want! I liked how he didn't just stalk her until she loved him, like other (*cough cough*) anime and manga have done. He wanted Misoni for the wrong reasons. That being said, in this chapter, Misono was just a a prop. She didn't do anything but crush on her crush and reject people. If there are anymore chapters to this manga, I'd like to see her gain some dimension.

Art: Of course the MC is a bishounen, but I got over that a few pages in. The art and character designs weren't terrible, but it was also nothing special.

The first and only chapter is only 40 or so pages, so if you're looking for something quick to read that may make you feel joy, take a peek at this.
