Shinjou wants to enter high school as a new man, since he had not been very popular back in Middle School. As he's trying to edge his way into society with his new look and personality, he happens to bump into Kurai Kako, a classmate from Middle School who had been just as invisible as he was.

They'll just have to make a bet -- who'll get a boyfriend/girlfriend first?

Average with a hint of flair

How to say this...I feel this one-shot was more about defying societies expectations than romance. The romance kinda just hit you out of the blue. It was more about these two people who changed their appearaces so much to become popular realizing they didn't eally care about the popularity, and it really wasn't all it was cracked up to be. All that work into maintaining your appearance and trying to carry on conversatios- I admit, I cracked up when the two ran away from their new admirers to have a few seconds of alone time. When has an introvert not felt like that?
So, yeah, kinda cliche, romance is very sudden and not very believable- this is more than spitting in the face of the concept of a 'koukou debut' than a romance. But it's an amusing read anyway, which is why I'm giving it a 6. If they'd had more time, I'm sure they could've made it better, developed characters more, but as it is, average with a hint of flair.

I don't understand why Kanou Yasuhiro is so persistent in working for Shueisha. They axed his manga all the time. He should just find another publisher who will do it. I am pretty sure it will work out since his manga isn't that bad at all. Sure, shueisha may have bigger reputation, but it's better than being job-less.

I have been a fan of his work since I first read MX0 and I have yet to be disappointed by his work (except for them being axed. This one-shot is no exception.

I've been waiting for something new from this author, I've been a fan to MxO and Pretty Face. Although the ending of both mangas is kinda rushed, I still couldn't deny that they're full of humor, Kano-sensei's works never failed to make me laugh. This one-shot appeared exactly like what I've expected from this author, it's refreshing. The concept is indeed, not original but this one nailed the others.

I'd like a sequel for this.

I wouldn't say that its 100% original... since the idea of changing your appearance in hopes of fitting in more, isn't entirely new. I've also seen other mangas that have way better characterization than this. BUT, this idea here is represented as a oneshot that was well presented. It was enjoyable, funny, short and sweet and eye catching smile
