A PARODY where men become less shallow over time.   
Rating: N/A

Look at all the negative comments. Know what they have in common? They're all written by people who read less than 5 chapters of the manga, all focusing on the fact that the hottest boys in Japanese highschools tend not to like BBWs. They focus solely on this one aspect, & obviously none of them read far enough to know she gains the weight back & the boys start to question how much looks really matter.

Let's talk double standards here, folks. The female lead specifically picked out the four hottest guys in school long before she noticed them. She picked them out so she could ship them, she never wanted to be the woman that came between them. If THEY gained weight before she got to know them, she most certainly would have lost interest in shipping them.

Secondly, these guys are complete tools, doormats, buttmonkeys. They let her walk all over them, they let her dress them up, they let her drag them to conventions to buy doujinshis for her, Nishima puts up with with her looking at his as a replacement for Shion, Shinomiya puts up with her making him dress in drag, they even perform fanservice to make her happy, even though it makes them uncomfortable. Sure, all of the boys except Mutsumi are shallow, hostile, & intimidating, but being around her starts to change them & make them question their outlook on life, love, & attraction.

It also has this amazing lesbian/bisexual (?) character who is a foil to the lot of them. Crossdressing, she's the hottest guy in the book, she has a lot in common with the heroine, she is strangely into BL, she's basically a God Mode Sue, but she has actual chemistry with the female lead & poses as a major threat to the boys to either shape up or ship out.

All but one of the love interests shamelessly started pursuing the protagonist just because she lost weight and became a beautiful girl. The same people who treated her badly before that. If these weren't shoujo/BL characters, they'd be the scum of the earth. But they are, so they're the scum of the earth who we're supposed to think are really handsome sensitive yet manly etc. and it makes them a hundredfold more unbearable. The only BL these characters should be in are hardcore rapes told from the seme's perspective.

guilty pleasure

It's pretty mediocre in every way...But, I must admit I'm reading this as a guilty pleasure. The series is light-hearted and very good for quick reads. It doesn't get you heavily invested in any way as it is so predictable. The art is also pretty average without much distinction from others in the shoujo genre. The characters are 2-dimensional stereotypes from an otome game, so don't expect much in terms of character development - you won't get any here.

I really enjoyed reading this
other shoujo mangas with fujoshi/otaku protags would obviously focus on them beginning to grow out of their shell and into the world of love (or smthn like that), but kae is a fujoshi down to the core, as I'm pretty sure this manga exists to poke a little fun at a fujoshi life and ridiculous reverse harems.
the boys are super cute I love them all, I've always been a fan of Junko, and I can't wait for more
anyway, definitely reccomend to any fujoshis out there lool

Rooting for senpai! Though he's so unreadable. The other guys are okay, but you get the thought that tsundere boy is an add-on until Ch. 3. Then it seems more interesting with him.

A Manga for Die-Hard Otaku!   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
by BlondieOtaku

Okay, let me say this first: THIS MANGA IS NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY! Many of the comments that you guys have posted stated how this manga was annoying and cliche, but that is because you guys are looking at it from the wrong viewpoint. This manga is a basic parody of shoujo manga and reverse harems. The sudden weight loss and the sudden harem was the impossible in this manga that is supposed to make you laugh and enjoy it's, well, total unlikeliness. From the those bigger details, to the tinier details (take the Attack on Idiot McDonalds poster in chapter 2 for an example), this parody manga is almost certainly NOT considered a romance manga. If you are a major otaku, fujoshi, or a fandom-blogger on tumblr, then you will probably understand the stupid jokes and references to other anime and trends hilariously displayed in this manga. I recommend this manga for people who understand what a PARODY genre manga is, and that this manga definitely falls into that category!

I really only read yaoi/shounen-ai, but stumbled across this when browsing through Junko's works. The concept is completely ridiculous, but then this manga isn't meant to be taken seriously, and was written for laughs and the parody. It makes fun of the shoujo genre in a good way, and I liked the main fujoshi character (even if she was annoying at times). This is a good read for any yaoi-fan looking for something fun and different (though clearly this isn't yaoi). It's funny relating to her. Look out for the dark-haired-glasses-guy - he made me laugh.

Don't take this manga too seriously.

This actually resembles Oresama Teacher volume 2 chapter 10 (pg 4-6), where there's a paraody of shoujo manga. (I had it saved, cause it was just too funny.)

Definitely entertaining, if somewhat RIDICULOUS (both good and bad).

I dislike harem. But this story doesn't even try to be serious. It's really just comedy all the way. But the idea is new and so far it's been ridiculous; I doubt that I'll actually come to like the series by its end. I'll continue reading for the hilarity though. Just seems unfair to scrutinize these types of manga over plot design and character depth.
