Description
This could be any girl. Imagine being a heroine of a love story. Hatori also believed that one day she would get married to her childhood friend, Rita.

But that's not how the world works! This is a hilarious comedy that honestly paints a painful unrequited love story of this young girl!

Quite good but too long

I think it would have been better if it were to be shorter, the last half of the manga was quite tiring seeing Hatori and Hiromitsu, though I really hoped they get together.
And it would be so nice if Rita and that supporting character (forgot her name OTL) got together, cause after all seeing them went through such a journey, they really did have some kind of chemistry

It was nice to see a shoujo manga from the rival/bitch's POV. That's why this manga is good.
However, it's not amazing. Also the fact that they had to throw in a love triangle made it worse.
But it's an incredibly fun read.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm one of those who wanted her to end up with Rita all along so I'm very satisfied with the ending. I liked Hiromitsu as a character the most out of the cast but I just couldn't feel the love between him and Hatori. It felt forced.

Hatori takes it all.
I dare say that majority didn't like just because:
1- a lot are in favor of Hiromitsu and he didn't end up with the Heroine.
2- a lot are annoyed with Hatori/Rita
3- they had a different view of the story.

While on the other hand, I really loved it AFTER giving it a second read.
Yes I hated it at first but then again I understood another message.

It's basically a failure of a girl and a boy. A Different kind of showing character development.
Hatori had always been obsessed with Rita, so in the end, choosing him is inevitable.
It was also good for Hiromitsu since being with Hatori will only lead to a VERY UNHEALTHY relationship.

Hatori amuses me. The author is brilliant for making a Heroine like Hatori. It shows obviousness on how detestable, bitch, and just, addictive a person can be.

Another is that, Koda Momoko reversed the roles. Hatori is supposed to be the typical rival/antagonist in a shoujo manga. Then she ended up with the Main hero which is Rita.
BUT, consider this..... at the very end, *Spoiler* :
Read Hatori's last statements....Everyone is a heroine of their own.

All in all, maybe it's just not for everyone.

Seriously engaging and dastardly hilarious art

Hahah this is so entertaining! This girl is equal parts delusional and downright scheming and so so so relatable! She's also very brave... I know I would have loved to be her had I no chance to be the "lead heroine" as she puts it! Her chain of consciousness is always trailing off into fantasies and almost immediately she'll pull herself back to reality too only to start fretting and scheming about another line of attack! I can never get enough of her inner monologue!

And the expressions and loveliness of the art despite some overall immaturity in the handling of faces is so top notch and over the top exaggerated! Sigh... this is why I continue to read shoujo manga! To encounter gems like this every now and then!

Everyone is so devious yet predictable, it's delicious! Characters are fleshed out very well here and lol "secondary characters" or "supporting characters" as our Heroine would call them are also given quite interesting non stereotypical roles. I may not be super happy with some of the more cliche twists the story kept taking after a while, or the ending per se... but it was a very fun ride.

And also... a self aware hottie basketball player who voluntarily attends prep/cram school? And knows when to turn on the jock fan service mode to distract the heroine from her ennui? SERVE ME UP A PIECE OF THAT!

And did I just see the three leads from Strobe Edge in a panel there?! OH MY GOD!!! Shoujo manga going meta! I love IT!!!

Hahah and generally I'm allergic to maudlin outbursts and melodrama but there's so much comedic relief to take the burden off it as well! How was this not made into an anime?!

You will love this and hate this at the same time trust me because i did. In The first half of the story i was pissed off with all the characters and even though i wanted to throw it i couldnt because deep inside i was hoping that it would change to the way i wanted, so i keep on holding on to it. I like how it ended, because i like the hero and the heroine from the very beginning but i dont like how the ending turned out for the supporting characters, i mean, those suppprting characters were very nice characters but why did they end up alone....? The ending was rushed but i like the story regardless.

I've always liked the manga, from the beginning. The main character, Hatori, is really original, I liked how the mangaka made her look like a bitch and 'ugly', unlike most of the shoujo manga that have weak, innocent and sweet/cute heroines. I think that the main character was also quite realistic, I don't know why people are calling her an airhead and such, she's a young girl in love, ofc she would do all of that for the guy she likes.
About the ending,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they both (Rita and Hatori) loved each other from the beginning, so they had to end up with each other, right? Maybe it just needed lots of drama for Rita to completely understand his love for Hatori.

Overall, it's a great manga. You might get annoyed by some of the characters of the story, but it's worth a try, and it's not your usual shoujo manga. smile (Y)

Alright so I finished it. At first I was really into this manga I mean, the main character was pretty annoying... actually.. really annoying and indecisive and selfish but I mean she's only trying to find happiness right? But it started going downhill after
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Rita fell in love with her. Are you effin kidding me?!
I mean of course I saw that coming, what else could fill up a 10 volume manga but
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
SHE EFFIN CHOSE RITA IN THE END!
I mean that's completely just... what the heck man. I dunno just too much back and forth drama, same shiet too. I finished the manga with this face " -.- "
Anyways, looks like it's 50/50 some people loved it, some hated it! I thought it was okay but definitely something I'd forget. Give it a try?

Read it because of Hiromitsu

Those two idiots really belong together. Hatori and Rita.
There should be a solo story for Hiromitsu and/or Nakajima. The only two characters in the story that made any sense.

from the very beginning to the very end of this series, i've loved it all the way through.
i'm glad hatori isn't your typical protagonist and even though she didn't end up with the person the majority of the fandom wanted her to, she was happy and i think as the series progresses, that's what everyone wants for her to be the most (well, for me anyway).
i don't know guys, this manga was just great. i feel so upset that it's over but at the same time i feel so glad because she's finally found her happiness.
it's definitely worth a go! you won't regret it.

One of the best manga

why one of the best manga?? because the stupid leading girl make a her way to the end .. sometimes i just want to hate hatori for being stupid but thats what make her the heroine and i just keep loving her even thought she stupid. This manga is kinda realistic for me because we girls also wants to be a heroine in our own life right. I love rita for loving hatori so much and also i love the way that hiromitsu kun changed because of love !! so thats why i love this story even if you dont agree.. keep up the good work KODA Momoko
