Description
Shinjou Shouryuu is a healthy 17-year-old high-school boy. Many of his kouhai wonder why such a great guy doesn't have a girlfriend. Ask him and he'll tell you that between school, work, and saving his kouhais from bullies doesn't leave him much time to go on dates. So he instead goes online to "F.I.L. GATES". There in the chat room his alter-ego, Kakeru, is infatuated with the girl called Hal. Hal sends a message reminding him that Sunday will be the six month anniversary of when they first met (online) and that she wants to meet him in person! And let's just say it's not your typical first date.

This manga is about the romance and complexities of an internet relationship.

At the beginning the It looks like a series of short story but after chapter 3 it's come back to the storyline and it's really interesting.
But after that the story is worse, the romance became quite crappy and the guy is a cheating jerk. Anyway it's just 10 chapter here so I'm not gonna give a hard judge now.
Besides, I really love the artwork.

"This just adds to my belief - men should NOT be writing romance V_V"

The mangaka is female. This comment is plenty biased -- there are a lot of men who write good romance manga (and plenty females who write good action "shounen"-y manga)

Anyway... I haven't actually read this series yet -- I'm getting ready to. The comments, rating and summary all sound good though, so I have high hopes.

The manga is very interesting, it features romance through a more modern medium but does not give the vapid fairy tale feeling of Densha Otoko. The view point of the story changes almost with every chapter and because of that you get a feel for every character. The aspect of the story that I really enjoy is the heavy emphasis on the importance of communication, how easy it is for misunderstandings to arise, and how sometimes it is the thing aren't said or done that can be impactful.

"i was liking this manga quite abit, thinking it's not a bad romance story for a seinen category...NOT! That guy turned out to be a cheating jerk! *SCREAMS*." ~neine

Uhhh... Haruka not only refused to speak with the guy, she later cut off all connection with him just because he was a little late to a meeting. She didn't give him a chance to say anything. I think that's a great deal worse than what Kakeru did (going out with an online friend to relieve some stress/frustration, which we can blame on Haruka). He doesn't even accept Miu's (the other girl's) feelings until he really thought Hal dumped him for good.

I found the main couple in this very interesting. Unlike other people, I don't see what's wrong with the latest chapter (ch6)... I definitely don't see any cheating... this kinda stuff happens all the time in real life...

i was liking this manga quite abit, thinking it's not a bad romance story for a seinen category...NOT! That guy turned out to be a cheating jerk! *SCREAMS*. It's just unforgivable and, sadly very male *sniff*. I don't think after what he did at the most recent chapter (onemanga.com), I will pick this up again. Jerk. This just adds to my belief - men should NOT be writing romance V_V

I'm enjoying this. The first chapter was absolutely hilarious and awesome. The rest weren't quite as amazing, but still really really funny and interesting (though the story's gotten a little unbelievable in some areas...). I'm also thankful there isn't much trashy fanservice, making this series enjoyable to a wider audience. For me, a reader of mostly shoujo manga, this is a fun experience of something different because the stories are from a guy's perspective... I think the characterization of both the guys and the girls is realistic and enjoyable. I also enjoy seeing the characters cross over somewhat to appear in each others' stories. (to what extent it will happen in future chapters, I don't know)

The art isn't stunning, but it's good enough that it doesn't distract me from enjoying the story. I actually thought the cover art looked too generic, but the inside is better biggrin
