    Hot Shoujo Manga

    This series is strangly addicting! Not only are the drawings crisp and clear, but the the story is full of twists, turns, fluff, hate, and all that good teenage-drama! It's enough to give you a headache ^^ But in a good way of course!! If you love hot guys, serous plots, humor and a nice bit of romance, this is the book for you! Things are sure looking up in Hot Gimmick...

    For those who think love blooms in the most unlikely places...

    The artwork is fantastic, one of the greatest mangas you can read. The storyline is both mysterious and funny! Ryoki is the coolest, especially when he analyzes the situation. Hatsumi, the hopeless romantic, falls for Ryoki, which causes major trouble for the apartment complex. If you liked the first seven, you definetely have to get this one (after all, it has Shinogu on the front ^^)!

    the coolest manga ever !!!!!!

    Quite frankly,I'm fussy about art but I must say that Miki Aihara is a wonderful story teller.She knows her story well,and she renders it so well on paper.Not only is it beautifully drawn but the plot is solid,she gives you enough to be intrigued(in my case,obsessed)and want more,which is I think the mark of a great artist...Anyways vol.8 is really good in the sense that Hatsumi realizes how much Ryoki cares for her and also how much she didn't know about her brother Shinogu and all the sacrifices he's been making for their family(what a cutie)...And vol.9 is even better...It actually gets better and better every volume,it's a great manga,it really is!!!
