The year is 1991 and 6th grader Yaguchi Haruo only has video games to live for. He's not popular in school and he's neither handsome, funny, nice nor even friendly. The only thing he has going for him is that he is good at video games. One day at the local arcade, he plays Oono Akira, a fellow classmate but who's popular, smart, pretty and a rich girl that absolutely destroys him at Street Fighter II. Not only does he lose to her 30 times in a row, he canít beat her at any game. Haruo canít seem to shake Akira off as she follows him from arcade to arcade everyday after school and beats him every time. As weird as it sounds, the odd pair begins a strange bond and friendship.

One of the best romcoms   
Rating: N/A

I don't like romantic comedies, but this one is an exception! All because of the setting. This setting is the best and the worst part of the manga. The worst because it's easy to see why console games of the '90s can be uninteresting for a lot of readers. The best because the setting is so fresh.

The pacing of the plot is good if not fast. There is no space for fillers, all events have a meaning. If not for the pacing, I would have never expected much drama in this manga (the characters started as elementary schoolers after all). Now I kinda pity the sony girl (the one who has Play Station). >_<

Since this is Oshikiri Rensuke's manga, you should be ready for his unique art style. Although it's not the most moe art in history, it's not bad at all. The backgrounds are quite detailed, while the characters have their own charm.

Ridiculously Romantic

This Series had me going WTF to aww every time Oono and Haruo interact.
The way the author handled the romance in the story is weird yet touching.

While I do love that it shows a lot of old games. Those times when I still play on arcades but what really amuses is the characters. Oono NEVER speaks but her action really speaks louder than words, though she is really weird.
She Hurts Haruo like hell and yet to my eyes it's a declaration of love.

And gawd, it's like two childhood frenemies who just can't figure out their real feelings.
Well on Haruo's side that is.

I have no idea but I'm so pumped for this series it's so weirdly romantic UGH! (I'm repeating myself)
