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!

A PARODY where men become less shallow over time.

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.

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

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.

I love the BL by this author, so I thought a shoujo manga would be interesting. The art is gorgeous! The series is funny too! It's great for light hearted fluffiness, but this is not a good series of you want something serious. She lost weight in an unhealthy and totally unrealistic way (not eating sets the body into starvation mode and retains fat while eating away muscle); also, she would have excess skin if she lost that much weight in that little time. But the concept was very cute and I enjoyed it. I didn't like the fact that most of the guys were super shallow and were only interested in her because of her looks (w/ the exception of one guy). I could tolerate the unrealistic weight lost, but the shallowness was a no no smile. I hope it gets better as the series progresses.

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.

After reading 27 chapters of this manga, I must say that I totally agree with what BlondieOtaku said. My opinion does not only come from reading this manga, but also most of Junko-sensei's work.
She's really capable of writing amazing stories, and she actually has wrote about bullying, the deepness of love, appearances and love at first sight because of them, so I can say with confidence that this is a very good COMEDY/PARODY OF SHOUJO MANGA. It makes me remember sometimes Horimiya, a shounen manga which main themes are love and appearances.
If you're up to a more serius story, this is definitively not for you. This is a really light story full of humor and maybe it will be easier to understand if you know lots of anime and the 'fujoshi culture' in Japan, because lets face it, the main audiences for this manga are japanese people and not foreigners and thats maybe a reason why is difficult to understand for some people.

Was so excited to read what this would be like since junko is one my favorite yaoi mangakas and I'm a sucker for shoujo. This did not disappoint me and the art is beautiful as usual. Can't wait to see more!

Rather amusing so far. But, I had one question during the last part of the chapter.. She lost weight and became skinny, fine.. but.. how did that improve her vision? Where the heck did her glasses go?
Other than that, I look forward to future chapters. ^_^
