It's seems so hard to find a good romance. But this is one of them.

Let's see...
*thinks for a minute*
The vocalist of that band; when her story was resolved it was kinda predictable, but i didn't mind because it was the only possible way for things to go. However, it was a tiny bit fast, her actions/behaviour at the resolution there didn't seem to match what was established. But she's a pretty small character so...not really important.
Of course one can't help but feel sorry for one of the characters. It's not a fault of the story though, the cast just didn't handle her case well. She was one of my favourite characters too.
But, I really can't think of any significant criticisms. Perhaps because it's no longer than it needs to be.

I love these "oldie" mangas, because their stories usually read at a steady pace, and the characters aren't too overdone. This particular manga is no exception.

I usually do prefer, however, the cleaner-looking "modern" manga art, but we must take into consideration the art style during the time this manga was drawn. With that in mind, I must say this is perhaps an 8/10--pleasing, but not wowing. The frames flow smoothly and the flashbacks are nicely blended in so that there is no confusion in the story.

This particular plot is quite common, but what makes me give Tokyo no Casanova a 10/10 is how the story is executed. Despite that Akira's mom is a big star and that he is a player himself, he isn't overbearingly flashy. The entire story has a very homely feel to it that is practically nonexistent in the typical shoujo fluff mangas nowadays, where the male lead is practically inhuman. In Tokyo no Casanova, however, Akira, as well as much of the cast of characters, are HUMAN. And that, my friends, is a big plus and a refreshing change.

The art is good considering this manga was drawn almost 30 years ago. The story up until now (chapter 5) is interesting and makes me look forward to learn more about their relationships. Also, I actually find the characters to be very likable and refreshing, since they don't act like the typical cast of more recent shoujo manga, which share a similar premise.

I guess I have not read enough of it yet. I'm hoping that the story will pick up. Right now it's only the first three chapters and dragging. Akira seems like a superficial player and Tamiko has a serious brother complex.
