Description
From Tokyopop:
When the school's two biggest troublemakers get into a tussle, there's nothing left for them to do but fall in love! In Love Attack, you'll find a rollicking brawl of a good time as the roughest guy and girl in school get themselves into trouble--and find themselves in love.

Chiemi Yusa's high-school record is far from perfect. She's already been suspended twice for fighting, and she's not even half-way through her first year! In danger of getting expelled for starting yet another brawl, her teacher approaches her with an unexpected offer: get her classmate Akifumi 'Deranged Devil' Hirata, the nastiest fighter in the whole school, to clean up his act, and her record will officially be cleared. Reluctantly she accepts, and immediately goes on the attack. But as she's waiting for him to retaliate, she discovers that he has more in store for her than just a fight! From the creator of Girl Got Game and Heaven!! comes a rollicking brawl of a good time as the roughest guy and girl in school get themselves into trouble--and find themselves in love.

From the author:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This is the story of how Hirata-san (whom Kyou met when she ran away in Vol.9 Ch. 32 of "Power!!") met his wife. It was supposed to end after one chapter, but somehow it was decided that it would be continued.

Great in the Beginning   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
by ultimate.dreamer

I absolutely was in LOVE with this in the beginning. First, you have a male lead who is dark-skinned and doesn't fit the bill of bishounen (though he's still cute). Second, they're both physically strong people that allows for many comedic situations. Third, lots of typical shoujo cliches don't fit here; they go the opposite direction or just don't happen at all.

Then somewhere in the middle it really, like other reviewers have said, goes downhill. Rival after rival is introduced; the main couple seem to draw only psychotic, obsessed people (including family!). Whereas before the main girl could take care of herself, she ends up having to get saved time and time again.

I feel that maybe the mangaka should have just stopped before going typical-shoujo route plus the crazy psycho characters. It really was a wonderful beginning. I suggest reading the first 2 volumes for the good stuff.

Although, the main lead's angry "I'm-gonna-beat-your-butt" faces are priceless throughout the entire thing.

I'm giving this a good rating solely because of the first part. I'd give a 3.5 for the rest of it.

BEWARE

The characters are so dumb and annoying (mentality of 10 year old kids in almost every character, even parents). No rationality found anywhere, decisions characters make are irrational and wrong (sometimes to the point its inhuman).

The comedy would be quite good, if just everything wasn't so damned exaggerated.

All in all it makes me wanna cry, because this would be a good manga, if only it was more realistic and had some common sense.

Don't bother with Honki...

I finished the entire series, including the sequel. Like others before me have said, it kind of goes downhill. The best part about this story is the unique couple. Yusa Chiemi is the typical air-headed protagonist...on steroids. Hirata, on the other hand, is more typical, but that doesn't mean he's boring. In fact, I think the author (and Chiemi) kicks Hirata around way too much that it gets old. Not just physically, but the series is funny and sweet when the two are together! Why do you have to mess with that? Seino just keeps introducing rivals after rivals that the focus of each volume seem to shift towards the rival instead. Everyone becomes BFF's with Chiemi while Hirata is complacently standing in a corner. The comedy of the series is largely slapstick; it's simple but it's great! I loved the surprised expressions of each character than reminds me of series like Gintama. However, the author just doesn't do very well with drama. The episode with Tachibana (and later Yui) are just so sappy and predictable. The only reason I persisted in reading this series is because of my hope that it would go back to a more lighthearted rom-com in later chapters, but boy was I disappointed. Honki does nothing but ditch Chiemi's best friends and bring in more cookie-cutter side characters and rivals in Hirata and Yusa's relationship. The development between Komaki and Oono were totally disappointing, too. It's best to stop reading right when Tachibana shows up now that I think about it.

As others have mentioned the first few volumes are fun and sometimes sweet, but after awhile things just start to get repetitive and it looses some of its luster. Dropped it before it finished.

The beginning was good, but...

The beginning was really funny and good. The characters are well made and there are some characters' development, especially with the main male lead as we keep on reading, but...at some point, around volume 5 or 6, the story line and most characters became pretty «shoujo-generic»...

Starts off with a good premise, but to be honest I never saw a comedy manga go this over-the-top and derailed for no reason at all. It's just too ridiculous. If that doesn't sound too bad, go give it a try.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
not to mention that in 3 volumes there's 3 cases of assault where the female gets rescued thankfully, what is this doing in a comedy manga T_T? Childhood friend turns complete yandere? End the volume with a cliffhanger: being stabbed by a knife >.> I see why the licensing of this was dropped

ULTIMATE fave shoujo for those who are sick of male bishies   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0
by vambam
February 3rd, 2012, 4:20am
the story is really good... it's one of the rare shoujo plots where in both male and female leads aren't the most handsome/pretty in the school. The female lead is not an annoying crybaby(though there was a time she cried). And she isnt clumsy and DUMB like most of shoujo heroines. she really is KICK ass cool and strong... the male lead is not the princely typical perfect (mary sue) one who is rich/talented/sporty/etc.. he is just an ordinary dude who falls in love just like anybody else (though he has a delinquent tendencies)....
sometimes when i read shoujo, there's an air that only the handsome guy deserves to be the prince/ or only the prettiest can be the princess in a romance story... BUT in this manga, it told us a reality that EVERYONE even the most normal/ordinary person in your class fall in love...(yuck i just said a cheesy line, eww)


so for those who are already sick of super hot bishies or moe cutie leading ladies, this one is for you...and dont worry coz the main leads are still lovable bigrazz ... (BUT in my own standards, Hirata is still hot even if he's not described as one.)

Hilarious! I kept laughing and laughing! The main characters are not that annoying. They're pure comedy gold! Even though some of the side characters are crazy. This manga never fails to make me laugh. When you think it's a serious moment. BAM the author makes it funny <3
Love-love-love it smile

The Side Characters   
Rating: 6.5 / 10.0

The story isn't much of a story. It's just a narration of everyday of Hirata and Chiemi's love life.

I think the only thing that keeps me reading this story are the side characters. They're hilarious and interesting. The male lead is alright too i suppose. He was kinda cute in chapter 5... smile The female seemed different at first but as the story progressed seemed kinda generic..
