Tsubaki is a girl who loves making her younger sister's hair pretty every morning, but she doesn't think that kind of style suits herself! The day of her High School Beginning Ceremony, after she failed in being the top student (who usually makes the ceremony speech), she finds herself sitting next to the actual top student of the first years, the worst rude guy ever, Kyouta. She ends up cutting his hair on purpose because of the bad things he says to her. Kyouta demands that Tsubaki pay him back with her body, but Tsubaki fixes his hair instead--making it even shorter! After that, Kyouta unexpectedly kisses Tsubaki and swears that he'll make her his woman.

Jealousy is not Love   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0
by moonmystery
April 22nd, 2014, 4:55pm
I hate how many people seem to like this on other websites I visited. The manga is not only repetitive, melodramatic, and misleading, but also cliche.

Many who like the manga all seemed to ignore the repeatedly used scenes of the girl, Tsubaki, getting overly sensitive/jealous of those who get near her boyfriend.

There's a girl who smiles at him? OH NO I better make a huge fuss out of it. I will cry and shout and scream my head off because obviously my loving boyfriend doesn't love me anymore. The dude want s to think about his own future instead of having a date with me? I'm trashing the cakes I made for him. Oh, and better yet, I'm definitely not telling him just how hurt I am. I'm not explaining a freaking thing to try to keep our relationship smooth sailing.

The main character is down right ridiculous to the point I want to slap her across the face with a flyswatter and feed her head to the sharks. Honestly, she is giving female readers my age the wrong message. She is making it seem like her ways of interacting with her boyfriend is totally normal, and is even a sign of true love.

That is utterly nonsensical.

Real love does NOT have to be so painful and filled with suffering. A healthy relationship doesn't need the constant fights and doubts about one another. It isn't filled to the brim with burning jealousy all the time, and if someone is in such a situation, then I don't think the relationship is the right one for the person. Seriously. Tsubaki's reactions to things that happen to her can, at best, be described as childish. Even Twilight is better than this, kind of.

Tsubaki is willing to throw away her own future for some high school dude she cut the hair off of.... WHERE DOES HER BURNING LOVE EVEN COME FROM? Yet, when her bf is spotted talking to another girl with a gentle expression, Tsubaki is 120% sure they're going to break up... How does that even make sense?! She is totally consumed by her romance, and forgets about every other aspect of her life. What about her future? Friends? Family?

Her love is just inspired by the fact that a popular guy made her more popular, when in reality she could've achieved the same without his help. After this, scenes roll and suddenly they are madly in love. Just what in the world?

I don't mind the fact that this is just the story of an insecure girl with popular boyfriend; but this series crafts each chapter in such a way that it is implied that her relationships are totally healthy. And that, my friends, means that there are real girls reading this manga who may end up believing that they, too, have to go through all this just to find "the one".....

If that is what true love is supposed to be, then to hell with it.

I started this manga about an year ago and now they finally finished the scans. There is so much misunderstanding that it makes me want to puke. You dont have to get so jealous all the time. Tsubaki seemed pretty stupid. Though, by the end of the manga, she became a little more "mature" maybe? I really hate all this jealousy and stuff so I dont really recommend this manga. The entire story is based on Tsubaki being jealous, frustrated and so on. One girl comes, Tsubaki is jealous, the guy clears the misunderstanding and they have some good time. Then another girl comes and its repeated. That's probably all of it.

Don't Read It

(The Art was good, really good, full of details, the hair styles where really well done, I'd be lying if said it wasn't, so I gave it a 3 because of that)
About the plot:
It was unnecessary long, and the plot was just average, the parents were really bad parents (yeah, there are like two options in shoujo manga for parents: 1. they (practically) don't exist 2. They are bad. I know) and the protagonists where dumb, SO DUMB, of course, with those parents there wasn't much we could expect of them, but it was the extra that killed this manga for me, it was so, so predictable that I wanted to cry.

I made a mistake by reading this manga, I hope my review helps you to do not.

Let me start off by saying I loved the beginning of this manga and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the ending.

With that being said, boy did this manga frustrate me.

It started off so interesting it really reminded me a lot of Kare First Love which is a good shoujo, in my opinion, with a bit of unnecessary smut to give it a teen demographic. Except this one lacked good drama, instead it was whiny teen drama (minus the almost rape which was really ridiculous).

Regardless, the story started off really good and had an interesting plot but I felt like any true "tension" was thrown away in favor of bickering and making up.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I wish they hadn't gotten together so soon. I feel like Kyouta's trauma would be a nice bases for the story as he slowly warmed up to Tsubaki. I also feel like they should have made Kyouta's dad more into an abusive villain.

Didn't it seem like only Tsubaki was suffering the entire time?

It felt like as soon as they became a couple it was really just smooth sailing. Sure they argued, but not once did I feel anxious for the couple except when What'sHerFace that liked astronomy showed up (I'll admit I ALMOST cried when they decided to take a "break" though).

Kyouta was the most understanding boyfriend and when he threw little fits and ignored Tsubaki I thought, "Whatever, you deserve a break from dealing with that girl."

Don't get me wrong, I love Tsubaki. She has a beautiful character that actually learns her lessons and grows from it, she has understandable insecurities that comes with being a nerd dating a popular guy, but her misunderstandings are really frustrating! It's basically the plot of the entire manga right down to the last chapter!

Anyway, I guess it was a decent read. I definitely don't feel cheated, but this is by no means an "excellent" story. It was simply entertaining and should be given a chance. The ending is definitely satisfying and you do grow to really love the two main characters. I wish there was more story on Sakura, Miho and Hal though (I especially wanted Hal to find a new love!). Sometimes you need a break from the main couple to focus on the friends (Like in Kare First Love).

If you like this manga definitely try Kare First Love. It's a lot like this except the drama is much, much better.

Fun road with a baka couple

This is certainly not one of the best stories out there, but it's also far from being the worst. I liked how unlike in most shoujo the main characters had their own distinctive quirky personality. They were a baka couple and although I was sometimes annoyed with the drama most of the time they made me laugh.
Many high school shoujo manga have the same conflict where the main girl has to choose a future career path, and has no clue what she wants, and then she just pulls some skill out her ass, that we've never heard of before, and that's the solution. I liked how it didn't happen here, and how Tsubaki's future was actually developed through the whole story.
All in all it was a fun little thing to read, I recommend it to all shoujo lovers.

I've been following this manga ever since it was first scanlated (oh gosh that was a long run) and although there were times when I wanted to drop it because the main character got a bit too annoying (well it is still your typical shoujo), the Character Development was noticeable and it became a series I wanted to finish no matter what~

I still recommend everyone to read it! One of the shoujo mangas with the best art and story smile

I know that some people gave up on it. The main character can get on your nerves sometimes. I still suggest keeping with it. They just uploaded the last chapter today (2/6/14). I've been waiting. It ends great. You'll love it!

it was ok for me, the girl's feeling of insecurities and uneasiness no matter what everyone will say it's true rather it really happens in real life, even te most beautiful girl can feel insecure when she fell inlove thus the feeling of helplessness will follow. cause no matter how the guy will let us feel secure a uman in love will always feel jealous no matter how you deny it. cause love and jealousy are in the same page like smile

I hate it when people say "This is so wrong..", "I hate this manga", "This is so overrated", "I don't understand how anyone can like this..", and so on; when they don't have any reasons other than to hate something they find difficult to relate to. People say the "character is so stupid", "why won't she do this and that"..., well, the news is that this is how the character was written. Story of an insecure girl who lacks confidence and courage, yet goes on strongly to cling to the things she holds dear. You may not appreciate it, but definitely doesn't mean it's crap.

I've read the reviews and completely understand why people don't like this manga but I quite enjoyed it! It's pretty cliche and can be corny but I loved the light feeling it had to it. I also loved how his character,despite how popular he is, isn't swayed by other girls like other guys in shoujo manga's. I mean there's "rivals" and all that but no cheating or even close to it. Their relationship is very grounded and stable and they really cherish each other and that's what I loved. Their relationship is very simple but strong.
Great light read!
