Description
From Del Rey:
It's a gorgeous, spacious mansion, and four handsome, fifteen-year-old friends are allowed to live in it for free! There's only one condition - that within three years the guys must transform the owner's wallflower niece into a lady befitting the palace in which they all live! How hard can it be?

Enter Sunako Nakahara, the agoraphobic, horror-movie-loving, pockmark-faced, frizzy-haired, fashion-illiterate recluse who tends to break into explosive nosebleeds whenever she sees anyone attractive. This project is going to take more than our four heroes ever expected: it needs a miracle!

This is definitely one of my favourite manga series. I normally don't read romantic Shoujo because I hate those pure good and shy girls where every freaking boy in the manga falls in love with. Sunako is not like that and that why I love her so much. She can fight better than Kyouhei, isn't shy and loves to watch gory horror movies. The "filler fest" as some call it doesn't bother me at all. It makes it more comfortable to read since its not all about the relationship development between Kyouhei and her but shows a lot of side stories about the other boys and the main characters' daily lives. This way you can see Kyouhei and Sunako changing bit by bit to come to respecting each others' shortcomings and oddities. In the beginning the art bothered me a lot because the boys are really thin but I grew accustomed to it. It's really funny to read and I hope Sunako never becomes a lady because I like her as the individual that she is.

It's a one/two volume story that was dragged out to 22 (and counting) volumes and it shows. The author basically took a somewhat unique concept, and dragged it out for every little thing it was worth. It's like the 'simpsons' of shoujo manga. Readable and somewhat interesting in the beginning, but dragged out so long that its almost become a parody of itself.

And you can say things like "oh, it's the comedy that makes it fun to read". What comedy? After the first few volumes, the author ran on empty on plot and comedy ideas and has been rehashing the same tired jokes ever since, and once in awhile to spice things up she digs into her big bag of shoujo cliche's and slaps some in.

This story needs to be brought to the back of the woodshed and be put out of its misery. Now.

It used to be fun despite the length, but now, at chapter 112, I'm just getting tired.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kyohei's pretty much admitted he loves Sunako, and Sunako's still nowhere near realizing she loves him too purely so there can be more meaningless fillers.
I want emotion. I want confessions. I WANT THE END, DAMNIT!!
I used to be a faithful reader who would follow every monthly update, but no more! After years of faithfulness, I have finally realized: PGE is not to be taken seriously. I am no longer going to wait at the edge of my seat for the When-will-they-finally-get-together dance to end. I can't be bothered to hype about every update anymore.

It's not to say that it's a bad manga. It's fun. Pointless, brainless fun with occasional chapters of shallow depth (contradicting, I know, but the only way it makes sense). But it's really not to be taken seriously. Just go watch the anime instead and save yourself some grief. Or, better yet, THE DRAMA, WHICH WAS SO MUCH BETTER.

Yes. I believe everything can be forgiven in the light of it all inspiring the drama. <333

WATCH THE JAPANESE DRAMA VERSION INSTEAD, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!

Perfect Girl Evolution is absolutely amazing.
Sure it's slow, but it's hilarious to watch how dumb the romances progress, and the pace totally matches the characters' personalities.

Maybe it's full of bishies, but that's part of the humor; the attitudes of the perfect school idols when they get home, is humorous juxtaposition.

Sure the main character appears as a deformed pudgy thing, 90 percent of the time, but it makes the 10 percent that much more dramatic.

Maybe it is repetitive, but it is always entertaining how the author comes up with new ways to turn Sunako into a lady, then cleverly snatches it away.

Sure the characters are mostly static, but that's because the change in them occurs out of the story line, like what we see in the random flashback chapters, and they do develp. slowly but surely, Ranamaru is slipping out of his playboy ways, Yuki is becoming more respectable, Takenaga has pulled his nose out of a book for once, and the 2 main have developed a cute relationship, understanding each other more than anyone else in the series.

Maybe you see cheap laughs, but I find it a humorous plot line full of silly mistakes, weird scruples, and constant entertainment.

And so what if it's sooooo long? are you telling me you enjoy it when a manga ends? I feel so empty once a manga I've been following for years ends. I always wish there could be more, so Wallflower makes me very happy.

I have personally read the series 4 times, re-reading ii while waiting for the next book to update, and I never get tired of it. I guess that means I'm easily entertained, but The Wallflower always leaves me with a happy feeling. You can't be glum after a good old fashioned trial and failure of the 4 boys turning Sunako into a lady. So that's my take on it. It has some silly faults, but the faults that turn some away are the same characteristics that drew and kept me into the series.

Im male...28 Years old and my favorite Manga include Change 123, Threads of Time, Shamo, The Breaker, and Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer....yet... I love this series. Sunako is almost everything Ive ever wanted in a womanwrapped up in a semi yandere package. Then they went and made it funny. Repetitive and slow at times but I just cant get enough.

I'm realy beginnibg to wonder wether Kyouhei and Sunako are gonna be a couple... I mean some hints and accidents did point out the possibility, But there's NO developement. It's as if they(characters) are in stand still. Yeah, sure, this is a comedy, But it's a LOVE COMEDY! Sooner or later some things have to change, and damn, I don't want to see some crappy hurried ending without definite conclusion.
I like the style, I like the art, but I'm worried about one of my favs going nowhere.

At first, I REALLY loved this manga. I'ts totally different of anything I saw before, and it gave me some good laughs.

But, you see, after 16+ volumes, there is no evolution at all in the story, just the same endless actions from all the characters. It is starting to bore me so much, that I don't think it's worth all the reading...

I really don't know if I'm going to continue reading it, but, if you're looking for a good comedy manga, It's worth a try.

This is probably one the funniest, most entertaining, yet long mangas I have ever read. The chemistry is very good. However, I think the manga is a little too drawn out. Otherwise, I highly recommend this manga.

This manga is... a jewel. Incredibly unique in style, both in characters, and plot. Though there are a lot of fillers, the real important chapters are placed perfectly to keep interest.
The two main characters really have their feelings dragged out of them, slowly and painfully--heck almost 1/2 the time it's almost deadly.

I love it.

I will saw that when I first started reading this manga, I criticized it for having too feminine males: huge eye lashes, big eyes, womanly facial shape, perfect almost glossy lips, SCARFS, etc. but now I think it's quaint and it actually became part of the plot for one of the male characters smile

It's long. It's stupid. But it's also incredibly entertaining. When MEN, who normally won't touch all other forms of shoujo with a ten foot pole, read this manga then there must be some sort of allure. Especially when you consider the genre. Normally the idea of a bishie harem with a female protagonist with an average sized chest would make the seinen-loving guys run in fear. But not this one. For all its foibles, (like it's length, slow episodic pacing, and nosebleeds) Perfect Girl Evolution is sometimes genuinely funny. Kyouhei may look like an alien, but there's a certain Fight Club appeal to him that makes the women blush and the men go "THAT'S MANLY!" And while Sunako may be the only girl in many of the scenes, when the chibi goes away, an extremely sexy woman takes her place. A woman who will eat popcorn, cook, watch Saw III and play video games. Poof! There went the macho man qualms about reading it. (Although realistically, they're probably going to skip all episodes not involving those characters...) Just TRY to make the same guys read Paradise Kiss. Forget Nana or Mars.

But to be fair, this manga is also one of the rare instances where the anime may be a better use of your time. It really is getting up there on the repetition and duration. And the anime has the same calibre of art and humor compounded into 24-so episodes. The best stories are still there. There's even more backgrounds. (Although the manga is the only shot at seeing naked Sunako...) You don't have to wait for Chapter 100+ for Sunako to primarily appear as a pretty human being in an episode rather than a squashed Ringu chibi. And the relationships almost approach a real, tangible slice of life development. Or at least, they don't reset.
