Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
09/01/2014
Gr 7 Up—Takeo is big and manly in a macho kind of way. His best friend, Sunakawa, is handsome in a pretty/pointy-haired way, which means that girls always find him attractive. One day Takeo rescues a girl named Yamato from a groper on the train, and she starts falling in love with him. Unfortunately for Takeo, he is too dense to realize this and spends most of the story convinced that Yamato is really in love with Sunakawa. This event and the subsequent misunderstandings make up about 90 percent of the plot, but then there is a twist at the end that takes the romantic story in a much different direction (avid manga readers won't be quite so surprised). Aruko's illustrations capture and heighten the farcical nature of the tale, to the extent that Takeo often looks ugly to the point of ridicule. In an author's note, Kawahara shares that she thinks the protagonist is handsome, but readers might find themselves repelled or at least distracted by his bushy eyebrows, big forehead, and enormous lips. This is a quick read for manga fans who are looking for a light and simple work but not for deep characterization.—Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

    Not your typical love story, I love it!!!!

    This book defies all the particularly awful stereotypes of typical romance manga and flips the concept of a love story on its head! It's refreshing that there is none of the typical pretty boy automatically gets pretty girl kind of rubbish, and the main character is so sweet! Please give this a read if you're looking for something different in a love story! You won't be disappointed!

    It's romantic comedy at its finest. It makes me laugh and warms

    It's romantic comedy at its finest. It makes me laugh and warms my heart at the same time. There aren't very many chapters 
    that have been released, so I read it from start to finish over and over again. It's a series worth reading for anyone who likes
    manga that is both funny and sweet~
