To love, all ages are submissive.

Love is a strange thing. Sometimes it makes people go crazy. Love is like alcohol. It can both heal and it can hurt. It can create joy and it can create pain. It is often responsible for some of the best and some of the worst moments of your life. It Is Too Sick to Call This Love focuses on a rather strange encounter of a successful businessman, Amakusa Ryou, and his high school sister's best friend, Arima Ichika. One day, either because of the fact that Ryou worked too much and was too tired, or did not eat, for some reason, he almost fainted in the shopping mall. However, a girl that later turned out to be his high school sister's best friend, Arima Ichika helped Ryou and even offered her bento to the man. This is love at first sign, this is something Ryou could not ignore. A girl helped a man, she had never seen before and even offered her bento. Now Ryou’s futile attempts to win the heart of a normal otaku high school girl begin.

That is what this manga is about. Ryou is a sexy businessman that has everything in the life: expensive cars, social status and great looks. Usually he acts more as a cold blooded person, but then he falls in love with Ichika and changes a lot. Does he really love her, why would he even do something like that? You will need to answer these questions yourself, when reading the manga. However, do not think of it that much, because this manga is a comedy, this is a romantic comedy. Ichika is not ready to accept her friend’s brother declaration of love that easily, because there is an age gap and she does not understand his intentions, because the way Ryou shows his feelings is a little bit weird. Because of that, Ichika will just insult Ryou and show how much she hates him.

With that being said, It's Too Sick to Call This Love is a good romantic comedy that has no drama about it and is just amazingly heartwarming and sometimes very funny. In addition to this, it will also get a TV adaptation somewhere in the future. Do look forward to it!
