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 and Ôtani's relationship finally seems to be going right, just in time for college woes to ruin their lives! Risa only has a few months to decide which tech school she wants to attend, but she can't even decide what she wants to study. What kind of degree can you get for playing video games and listening to Umibôzu all day?

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.

Awww she looks cute with her hair and makeup like that. And oh his expression, cute!!!!! Yeah don't know what else to say for this one that I haven't said on the last one or the other ones. Or the series as a whole so far. So basically Risa has to decide on a college and well, looks like another obstacle in their relationship. Just when things were getting okay for them it seems.
