Description
From tethysdust at MangaHelpers:

Tsutsui Hikari is an otaku, and he mostly avoids social life. Hikari has only one friend at school, who is also a social misfit, and he is mocked brutally by most of his classmates for being creepy and weird. One day, he ends up having to clean the school pool with Igarashi Iroha, who appears to be pretty much everything he hates in real-life girls. She skips school, has a blunt manner, doesn't have female friends, and seems the sort to be promiscuous. However, she is friendly to Hikari, and even stands up to the people who make fun of him. Hikari's bitterness and trust issues lead him to say pretty harsh things to Iroha, but she never dismisses him as creepy. After a while, it starts to look like Iroha may become his first real-life, 3D girlfriend! Will he be able to handle it?

I thought it was going to be one of those shoujos where the glasses wearing ""loser"" who dates a popular love interest who realizes the main character is actually good looking/beautiful, then ends up falling for them, etc etc. something along that line. It isn't. But I wasn't hooked from the beginning. I was not very sure what the characters were thinking in the beginning, like their personalities were very hard to assume
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
like how Iroha lied about lying about the relationship between her and the doctor?
I didn't understand what this concept was, like a mysterious girl concept for this one I guess? It was nice though, since she became a little bit down to earth once she fell in love more and more. Also a lot of things in the beginning still not yet explained.. But I like that the characters are dynamic and some are hard to comprehend, not knowing what they will do next. It's one of the things I really enjoy about this manga. It was nice seeing character developments in people around Hikari and how his personality impacted others, which was nice since he is really nice once he cares. I think I started really getting into this series when Ishino's character was introduced. The manga is actually kinda cliche, if you try to explain the plot in words. However, the mangaka does a great job not making it seem as cliche and unrealistic by mixing in realistic elements into the story.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The cliched 'everyone becomes friends in the end- let's all go eat lunch picnic style' type of thing appears, 'I'm a better person for (insert-name-here) than you are, I'm going to steal him/her from you! -> *only ends up making love between character A and B stronger*', and other shoujo cliches.. It comes up so naturally you don't even notice it unless you really focus on that one fact. I keep forgetting that the love relationships are actually pretty complicated like A -> B -> C <-> D <- E <-F. As chapters pass, I'm having a little bit of second thoughts of this couple.. They're not very good at communicating with each other during arguments/fights, like it's always one person just announcing something whatever they think and want to say and leaving the other person not knowing what to do. (the person leaving is usually Iroha.)

A predictable diamond in the rough

The opening chapters could use a redraw in retrospect but the art now settled in nicely and is further distinct even if a few panels have weird perspectives from time to time. The writing more importantly is very strong from the start and somewhat unique on top as the 2 romantic leads are vastly incomplete drifters. I was hooked form the start and i expected great things going forward but now find myself disappointed to a degree as shoujo syndrome kicked in after a while. The usual backup couples (at least 3 here) formed way too fast and the story reduced itself to a predictable high school romance for the most part that is about culture fests, the power of friendship and the unrequited love that becomes requited trope. Sigh. The rest of the cast isn´t bad but i am always 2 steps ahead of the narrative at all time and that isn´t good enough. The ticking clock narratives is further unneeded as the story has (or had) enough urgency. A bittersweet conclusion would make the story pointless too so why is it even present?
I love it that the leading couple goes though stages of a relationship even if time is only crawling forward and Iroha is still a great character. Our protagonist Hikari is also mostly intriguing too but all the answers come too quickly and the harsher stuff is now gone. His Parker Luck tough made the narrative stand out originally as he started out as a hard sell and is now written as a near everyman with positive traits only. The story is now borderline interchangeable too. A recent arc for example introduced the theme of his family braking apart but an easy resolution came again quickly and made me write this review as a return to form was in reach but was pulled from me in the last second.
The manga now irritates me nearly as much as i am having fun yet i still can recommend the series overall as it has its own unique charm and glimpses of greatness can still be seen every other chapter.
Watch the Welcome to the N.H.K. anime (9/10 and the different manga is inferior) first as it gave me what volume 1 promised and also read Ikuemi Ryou´s Taiyou ga Mite Iru (Kamo Shirenai Kara) (9/10) and Torch Song Ecology (8,5/10) as she stuck to her guns and didn´t turn her narratives into a story about shiny happy people after act 1.
3D Kanojo hold the seeds of a promising future for the mangaka so maybe the next work will deliver more and the author´s previous efforts are write-offs.

A pretty harsh story that the MC goes through. But the romance is great.

Most shoujo/josei are able to portray relationships realistically, and this manga is no different.

Both the MC and the love interest are interesting characters with hidden motivations and mature perspectives on life.

It was quite funny and enjoyable! This story has an original plot and characters which makes it refreshing to read! It's a nice and relaxing pastime to read this and it isn't annoying or too drama-ry so it's not tiring to read. I recommend!

Best Male Lead

I really like Tsutsui...He is sooo unlike any streotypical shoujo manga male lead.
He may be labeled as gloomy by other people because they cannot see his good side. He is honest, sweet, hardworking and dedicated to the one who he cherishes.
Ganbate Tsutsui!!!!
I wonder how Igarashi and Tsutsui relationships gonna be after half a year until she moves. I'm definitely gonna follow this story.. It is so interesting. I definitely recommend reading this.

I Feel Betrayed

This manga started like it was going to be one of the best stories on Earth! There was a cool strong-willed girl who knew she didn't have much time left. Although her reason to date the male lead was a bit out of character, it was more than compensated by the way she dated him. That scene where she overloads the poor fellow's brain should got to all-manga's hall of fame.

However, everything is lost by the end of volume 3. The girl has become a run-of-the-mill princess who falls for the main nerd. The main nerd has become a typical shounen who tries to find his place. No wonder various cliches start to take the bigger part of the story. Normal friends? Check. Bad guys who become good and join the nerd's friends? Check. Love triangles? Check. Festivals? Check. Well, you get it.

All in all, if you want just another shoujo/shounen romance story, go ahead read this. If after reading the first chapters you expect something like Narcissu (Visual Novel), better drop the manga before you get disappointed.

P.S. The art style is good.
