opinion

I like the artwork, really like it. the style is so cute. the only problem is that it isn’t really clean. For the plot, I feel like the development of feelings is too fast? for the male lead, I mean. and I don’t like girl rival’s scene. It’s like being “pressed to fit” but it just didn’t fit for me ;;u;; but other than that, I like the otome game topic and sweetness, it’s fun seeing tokki jealous over a fictional character.

Mitsu who lost her memories after an accident at school is trying to relearn who she is. She found a scribble she wrote a day before her accident that said I like ‘A'”. Who is this ‘A’? Because her boyfriend’s name is Hongou Hideto and there’s no ‘A’ anywhere in his name. Did he know anything? Is he hiding something from her?

[collapse]
opinion

If only the art and heroine’s physical appearance (and character) are better, I’ll give this story two thumbs up. It’s rated seven by me, but I do highly recommend this because of the amazing plot ;u;) LOVE THE PLOT SO MUCH.

Funny temptation of Amaama-kun

summary

Michihara Yutaka likes to eat but afraid of gaining weight. Katsuragi Botan likes to cook and gives food. Chances let Michihara to sit beside Katsuragi, her crush, and Katsuragi just loves to give her foods! What will happen to her diet (and love)?

[collapse]
thoughts

The art is really good and cute, but the plot is repetative. I personally would like to see katsuragi helping yutaka’s diet by making low-fat meals instead. the characters are unique too. this is a fun and fluffy romance comedy shoujo manga.

あなたのためにすべて 🇯🇵

Anata no Tame ni Subete
All for You
Kadono Yuu
» rating: 8.5/10 🍓

[collapse]
summary

Yuna has fallen in love at first sight with the baseball club’s ace, Sanada-senpai. Her friends told her that he is out of her league, but there’s no way she could just give up like that?

[collapse]
thoughts

since I’m a fan of kadono yuu’s art, I could say that I find the art really cute >w<) the plot is normal though, a girl fall in love with her senpai. and she works hard to get him love her too. it’s a fast paced romance, but I didn’t really feel uncomfortable by it. the female character here is quite bold, and the male is cute. this manga certainly give off a fluffy aura due to the art though, and this manga is an enjoyable read for me.

However, due to her nature, she aims to befriend him, much to his annoyance. Can a friendship grow between a poker face, cheerful girl and the loner? Can she break through his walls?

[collapse]
thoughts

a masterpiece I may say. I like the art and the plot. I’m not quite fond of the characters, but for this kind of plot, the female lead’s character is totally giving off an impression of what the “situation” around her made her do and the male lead’s character is essential to make her strive forward. I love this series. an amazing read.

summary

Love is troublesome! But, I can’t stop. Even a second after I fall, trouble starts. How is that love——!? Yuuha (Senior high 3rd year) falls in love with anyone who is kind to her or shows her some affection. She is currently, secretly dating Kouno, a university student and a senior at her part time, gasoline stand job. One day, she hears from her scary junior at work, Kiryuu, that Kouno has another girlfriend——?? Even though she gets hurt when she falls in love instantly, why did Yuuha go and fall in love yet again…!?

[collapse]
thoughts

an enjoyable read. at first, I find a weird gap on the girl’s character. she said to be the girl who falls in love if someone nice to her, and she easily confesses too. but weirdly, she didn’t have any ex other than the university guy. it’s kind of weird. but then I decided to let it go, because I’m totally into this plot ;;u;; this manga’s plot is good and I can’t wait to read more chapters!
