Overview

R to L (Japanese Style)

Risa Koizumi is the tallest girl in class, and the last thing she wants is the humiliation of standing next to Atsushi Ôtani, 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.

Risa's love life is finally on a roll, now that Ôtani has confessed his love to her. But can her happiness be complete if her best friend is miserable? Nobu's grandma is moving to Hokkaido for health reasons, and Nobu has decided to go to college nearby. Nakao wants to be supportive, but the thought of being that far away from Nobu is driving him crazy. Will their relationship crack under the pressure?

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.
