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

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!

She just combined all of my favourite categories together to create glorious magnificence. Well written and with good art, it sweeps you along. I can't wait for more~

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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).

okay, the harem in this is a little ridiculous. but whatever, i'll go with it. also the way the weight loss is dealt with is reminiscent of ai morinaga's machinations in ahiru no oujisama. these lead me to believe that... NO WAY am i ever to take this manga seriously. lol. i guess i'll read this for the lolz. maybe no pairing will result at all, after all junko is a yaoi master XD im expecting full on fanservice at all times. the more awkward, the better. GO SENSEI GO
