Description
From Viz:

Risa Koizumi is the tallest girl in class, and the last thing she wants is the humiliation of standing next to Atsushi Otani, the shortest guy. Fate and the whole school have other ideas, and the two find themselves cast as the unwilling stars of a bizarre romantic comedy duo.

Lovely Complex Plus is actually volume 17 with the final chapter called Love Com Final. The first two chapters are about before Koizumi Risa and Otani Atsushi met each other. The third chapter is about their first encounter and a little bit of what happens to them after the ending of Lovely Complex.

*Contains a side story called Hoshi ni Natte mo Aishiteru (Even When I Become A Star, I'll Still Love You) in vol 12:
Reina wakes up surprisingly in her boyfriend's room. But it seems that she passed away three days ago...

In 2004 Lovely Complex received the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo.

Japanese people must be really short. Like... really, really short because 5 feet and 5 inches is my ideal height. I mean, why would you ever want to be shorter. Five five really isn't all that tall. >< Ugh. I only wish I were her height. I don't know what her problem with it is... :<

Lovely Complex

I watched the anime and then read the manga and I was really surprised at how similar the two things are... several animes are quite different from the mangas they are based on. I loved the last 2 or 3 volumes in which new things (that weren't featured on the anime) start happening.

On the whole, this is a lovely story that gets you to read all the volumes without getting bored and loving the characters more and more as the story developes. I do believe this is a story in which the character's personality changes and gest better as the story moves forward.

I would absolutely recommend this manga to all shoujo lovers. ^^

Art (10%): 9
Nice clean art with characters that looks normal.

Story (40%): 9
The plot isn't remarkable other than the fact that it is realistic. One part I particularly like is that they didn't study a lot and didn't do well in school but their grades didn't magically become good because they decided to study a lot in the end. The manga is very realistic in both the relationships between the characters and the story in general (I don't want to spoil too much by giving examples). The story is also really funny and done well. This is a good manga to read if you want a nice laugh.

Character (40%): 9
The characters are all likable. The only problem with the characters that I had was that Risa pretty much remained a slacker to the end of the story. Maybe it's just me but I thought that she would try to get more serious with her school work. I love the chemistry between the characters and the relationship (how they always joke around) but a lot of times I felt that they were more friends than boyfriend/girlfriend. Although the characters are likable, some of them got annoying at times because they are so realistic. I got annoyed at Risa's reaction to Atsushi's declaration about his college choice (I don't want to spoiled) but the characters were good overall and pretty much stayed consistant.

Enjoyment (10%): 9
I liked reading the story but some parts of the story exaggerates the facial expressions (it is suppose to be funny but I personally think that its ugly). I would have enjoyed the story more if they focus more on issues like their future earlier on. I also didn't like the ending a lot but the story itself was funny.

Total Score: 9

It's adorable! Shoujo fans will most definitley adore this.

The only thing I had a problem with would be the length...it gets slightly slower and boring after

they get together.


It just goes up and down.

But the ending is decent, I guess. ^^

I started this series by watching the anime in 2008 and it was hilarious to watch and then read the manga and was also hilarious to read. The great thing that i like about this manga is that it makes me laugh really hard, i don't care what kind of mood your in, it will make you laugh. All the hi-jinx and situations tied in together as well makes for one great manga.

It definetaly a good read!!!

i love this manga so much! it's so funny. i also love nakahara-san's other work and i'm looking forward to her feature manga too. ganbare! nakahara-san!!

just reading the first chapter will hook you up!trust me! and this manga is so..innocent...i love all the characters; how they have their own personality cause some other manga-ka don't show more of the characters personality but this one have it, like when they're angry, happy, depressed... all of them have their own way on expressing their selves. nakahara-san really is great!

This series always manages to make me laugh, and it always brings me out of a terrible mood. I can't help but love Lovely Complex, because it's such an original and awesome situation. Just thinking about her plot, it makes me so happy; that two people can get along so well and despite their physical differences and complexes about themselves, love. I can really understand Risa-chan, I seem to have more of an affinity and likeness to her than when I watched the anime years ago, I guess I've gotten as strange as her since then. XD Nakahara-sensei's works can always be made out as hers, her style is so memorable and makes me love manga even more. <3 So yeah. You love thought-provoking-ness, to learn or discover new things? Though not everyone can get what I mean since I speak like an old Oba-chan three times my age. X3 This manga is something different in a good way. I think this manga is mainly about accepting yourself and everyone around us for all of our eccentricities. <3
