Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Already super-popular in Japan, this cute romantic comedy promises to be a surefire manga hit in America, too. Its plot is as simple as a triangle: High schooler Tenma Tsukamoto has a gigantic crush on her classmate Karasuma Oji who, alas alas, is slated to transfer next year to another school. Meanwhile, sympathetic delinquent Harima is nursing his own crush on, you guessed it, sweet, clueless Tenma!
Publishers Weekly
Unrequited puppy love fuels many laughs in newcomer Kobayashi's romantic comedy debut. Second-year high school student Tsukamoto Tenma has a crush on Karasuma Oji. There's just one problem: Oji is transferring schools in two days. So Tenma leaves a heartfelt love letter in his locker, which she forgets to sign. Oji is intrigued enough to persuade his parents to let him stay at the school for a year while he figures out who his secret admirer is. Plenty of time, right? Not for Tenma. Crippled by her own lack of common sense, and oblivious to juvenile delinquent Harima Kenji's equally unrequited pursuit of her, Tenma makes with the meet cutes in an escalating series of attempts to get Oji to notice her. Kobayashi has obvious affection for his characters (even supporting roles like Tenma's mildly telepathic younger sister), which helps keep the hijinks funny even when they reach their most embarrassing-and with bird costumes, Machiavellian seating schemes, and cases of mistaken identity, embarrassment abounds. Kobayashi shows his versatility by, keeping Tenma's scenes cleanly rendered, while using looser cross-hatching to give Kenji's scenes a grittier, crime-story feel. Occasional references to unseen rapists may push the tone a little too dark, but otherwise, this series should hold much amusement for teens. (Mar.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Despite its title, this is not a manga in the "fighting high school" genre, but a wacky comedy. High schooler Tenma is in love with her classmate Oji but can't bring herself to tell him. After much deliberation, she leaves a love letter (a lengthy scroll, actually) in his locker at school-but she forgets to sign it. Meanwhile, class delinquent and tough guy Kenji is in love with Tenma but is likewise unable to declare his feelings. While Tenma secretly hatches a variety of unsuccessful, gag-filled romance-starting schemes-angling to sit next to Oji in class or delivering a love note to him tied to an arrow-Kenji's equally secret pursuit of Tenma also goes comically awry. In an amusing contrast, Kenji's scenes are drawn in the rough, realistic style of action manga, while Tenma's are in a simpler style. Two less frantic and more heartfelt chapters focus on Tenma's younger but more mature sister Yakumo. Less bizarre than Cromartie High School and less racy than Love Hina, this still may appeal to fans (both male and female) of either. For larger collections, and ages 13+.

    I Also Recommend:

    School Rumble is a great series

    In this manga, the author writes skits about individual characters that are unforgettable. In the first volume, it explains a lot about the characters and their lives. The little skits include daily activities as ANY one person would do in REAL life. I found it very funny and VERY enjoyable. I would HIGHLY recommend this title.

    One of the Funniest manga

    this manga is about a sophomore high school girl named Tsukamoto Tenma who had a crush on Karasuma Ooji, a classmate who looks and acts odd. the second main character is Harima Kenji, a delinqeunt who would've dropped out of school long ago if it wasn't for Tenma whom he really has a crush for but its all onesided love. The story started out when Tenma tried really hard to get into class 2-c where Karasuma is in but as soon as she found out she was in that class Karasuma said he would be tranferring the day after next so Tenma wrote a really long love letter expressing her feelings but forgot to put her name on it and the next day Karasuma said he'll stay for another year and what happens next, well you'll have to read the book as soon as it comes out. It took me 2 months to finish a chapter because i had to decipher the japanese language from a friend. there is the anime to see if you want to know
