Description
From Nagareboshi Manga & Manga Abyss:

Ogasawara Aki is the reclusive, idealistic composer of the popular band Crude Play. Discontented with his life and with no drive to succeed, he meets Riko, the 16-year-old grocer's daughter in a band consisting of her childhood friends, and asks her to be his girlfriend on a whim. Riko, young and innocent, agrees immediately, but worries about her new boyfriend, whom she suspects has just broken up with a woman he cared very much for.

Iím really impressed with this piece of work from Aoki Kotomi-sensei. Her art is still not the best but has improved loads and I often find myself studying the amount of detail in her backgrounds. Also, her storytelling and paneling techniques have blown me away. Like someone said, the story reads like a novel, and I have to add that I love the perspectives she used to draw the reader in and bring them closer to the mind of the character. Sheís really utilizing manga as a style to its full potential. There are particular scenes that I find very rare and subtle but engaging, such as those in the city at night either on a rooftop or by the bridge. The detail that is paid attention to, the way the images are woven with the charactersí monologues Ė they are sometimes so subtle but make all the difference between an average series and one that can truly connect with the reader. Much respect in this category.

The characters and story itself is complex and well thought out too. However, I have to say the two main leadsí relationship makes very little realistic sense and itís further highlighted when juxtaposed with the rest of the series as a whole. Aki is deep and well developed but to be honest he depresses me a bit and the heroine is decent Ė not utterly stupid or anything typical - but could have had a bit more distinction in personality. It sounds like a contradiction that they characters are complex but not particularly memorable, but it may make more sense if you read it. Iím still willing to read on by all means because itís rare a manga of this quality comes around these days but Iím more interested to see where the music aspect of the story will go than how their love lives will conclude. Still, Iíd recommend this one for anyone looking for a shoujo series that doesnít leave you wanting a couple of hours of your life back.

well,i think that this manga may be the magaka's best so far.i always liked her artwork,and its just getting better,so really no complains there. about the story: it really is better than her previous works in the storytelling-aspect as well,like it takes place in the past,so it gives you a whole-like feeling about the story,not some random plot.and another likable point is to me,that finally the female lead is smart-not in an educational way,cause who cares about that,but she can comprehend the situation almost entirely,and not just wondering for 100 pages if 'he likes her or not,and how is he feeling about her...'-so she isnt dense,just carefree (not like iku...)i can recomend this to anybody,even he/she didnt like the magaka's previous works.

THIS MANGA IS AWSOME! I'M WRITING IN CAPS TO SAY THAT!
Anyways, this manga is really good, it caught my interest in the prologue, and i must say the storyline is really unique, nothing like i have ever read.
The art is cute too. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for something different. Or actually, anybody at all.

Wow. Compared to Boku wa Imouto and Boku no Hatsukoi, I can really feel where this manga-ka has matured in terms of plot. This manga reads like a novel. The way Aki narrates the manga---it feels very gentle, and surreal. I don't know what it is exactly, but I like the way the story is being told.

As for the characters themselves, I think Aki is a similar guy to Yori(from Boku wo Imouto). They're both incredibly talented(although in different things), and they're both hopelessly, painfully in love(although for different reasons). Riko also reminds me of Iku. Both are cute and outgoing. In fact, in some weird way, I feel like Aki and Riko could be Yori and Iku reincarnated. They're that similar in character.

Anyway, I don't want to say too much about the characters. This deserves some more readership, so I'll just recommend this. This is one new shoujo that shows a lot of promise, so give it a chance if you're tired of all the fluff and want something more solid.

The thing is, this manga has some deep character relationships, which makes it a very good read. The situations are very entertaining and the focalization on specific characters and their thoughts makes it read like a novel, though it might be his default: the art is not top notch, but it's a point that I, among others, tend to overlook.
Every character has his conflict, without turning the manga into useless emotional drama, but giving a thorough explanation, what I mean is that I like all the characters, because they all have their reasons. It really makes me want to read more of this!

The art really irks me and I dislike the way the girl has such a smutty expression at times
But the overall story is really original, the characters have depth
It balances out the emo parts with some lighthearted breaks
So... I would still recommend it overall. Thumbs up.

Suprisingly good! I really dislike AOKI Kotomi's other works but this one seems pretty good so far. I must admit, I'm not a fan of her artwork but the story so far is amazing. I hope to see further development of the characters.

To me at least, it's hard to find a manga that is realistic enough with it's characters and lifestyle and still be interesting. I can see where people would call it depressing, but life in general is depressing. I love every thing about this manga. The characters are deep, the plot is captivating and realistic. I understand why some people would say that falling in love at first sight is not realistic, but you can say that it never happened to them. It never happened to me, but I do believe in a strong attraction to someone. Anyways...the art was nice, it might bother some, but the story will make you forget about it. Like I said, this is a rare manga to find that's realistic. And it's not just about love, it's about life in general.. and music smile

Once again, Aoki Kotomi, has authored a work that is so angsty and delicious. It's so good! Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu was great. If you read it, toward the end of Boku, Aoki starts to incorporate other narrators into her story. She made the multiple perspectives more frequently in this work, and I LOVE IT! It's like getting the same beautiful view from different angles, each with its own charm and reveals some different details. Oh Shinya, fear not, because I feel you! I wish manga would use multiple narrators or an omnipresent narrator more often.s

With shoujo, once you have read enough works, nothing will ever be completely fresh again. Music mangas have been done time and again: Nana, Nodame Cantabile, but the thing that sets Kanojo a part is Aoki Kotomi's brand of angst. If you have any of her previous works, you know what I mean. While Nana has slice of life-y mature feels, Nodame Cantabile is silly and comedic, Kanojo is all about the youthful and dramatic angst. The kind that is unique to inexperienced teenagers, which is funny because the leading men in this manga are 25s. hahaha.

I always adore Aoki's male protagonists. They are always so devoted to their love interests. Aki is no exception. He starts out in love with another girl but fell in love with our heroine. A weak point of the series is that his change from being heartbroken to falling in love with Mush wasn't well portrayed. It gives a "when did THAT happen?" kind of feeling. With the first few chapters making his love to Mari a big deal, I thought it would take a lot more for him to get over her. Oh well, Aoki's strong point is always about the men BEING in love, so I'll forgive some shortcomings.

With a scandalous title such as Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru, it was only able to sustain the theme of him lying to her for the first few volumes, which were seriously awesome. After that, this almost feels like Boku no Hatsukoi 2.0 with Aki being so in love with Mush. Well, I still love it anyway. This was made for my taste!
