Overview

Risa Koizumi is the tallest girl in class, and the last thing she wants is the humiliation of standing next to Atsushi Otoni, the shortest guy. Fate and the whole school have other ideas, and the two find themselves cast as the unwilling stars of a bizarre romantic comedy duo. Rather than bow to the inevitable, Risa and Atsushi join forces to pursue their true objects of affection. But in the quest for love, will their budding friendship become something more complex?

Risa got a job at a restaurant so she could be close to Ôtani's cram school. But now it looks like one of her coworkers wants to get close to her! Kohori is cute and short and majorly into Umibôzu, but Risa just wants to be friends. When circumstances conspire to make it look like she's interested in more, what will a super-stressed Ôtani do?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In this winning shojo manga, despite the aggravated barbs that Risa Koizumi (tallest girl in her high school class) always traded with Atsushi Otani (shortest boy in same), somehow Risa fell in love with him (see the review of Vol. 4, LJ5/15/08). Eventually, despite deep embarrassment at showing his feelings, Otani returned her love, and their relationship has emerged from trials stronger and more secure. With that major point resolved, Nakahara has begun to make changes to keep the series thriving. Here, she turns the spotlight onto the appealing supporting cast, as Risa's best friend Nobu must decide whether to move to Hokkaido to help her ailing grandmother or stay in Osaka with her boyfriend Nakao. But a larger change has the cast about to graduate and thinking about the future. Despite his uniformly poor grades, Atsushi is determined to attend college and crams hard for entrance exams. Risa, who has equally poor marks, is clueless about what to do with her life besides be with Otani. With cute-but-not-cutesy artwork and laugh-out-loud comedy leavening its sentimentality, this is one teen girls' romance that can appeal to boys and adults as well; strongly recommended.
