Description
This could be any girl. Imagine being a heroine of a love story. Hatori also believed that one day she would get married to her childhood friend, Rita.

But that's not how the world works! This is a hilarious comedy that honestly paints a painful unrequited love story of this young girl!

Total train wreak

As much as I like Hatori, she's a total train wreak. To say that Hatori is a bully, stuck up or a villian would be overdoing it. She's not confident, prideful or mean but rather delusional, insecure and naive. Loving Rita who has a girlfriend (Adachi) just makes this one really bad mess because you feel her pain and hopelessness throughout the story. Rita is totally unreceptive of her love and his girlfriend is such a goody-two-shoes to the point of nausea. While Hatori's behavior towards her is more realistic than friction. As for Rita, you'll probably end up despising him.The only spark of hope in this story might be that Hatori may wake up and smell the coffee. On the other hand, for those who absolutely love stories where the protagonist is redundantly kicked in the teeth ( i.e unrequite love, played with and two-timed) this would be an olympian contender, so eat your heart out.

The first thing that really made me start loving this manga was the fact that Hatori is not your average shoujo heroine. She's "the other woman," basically. But instead of a Strobe-Edge-other-woman premise, where the heroine's still a sweetheart... Hatori is the mean, snooty, stuck up girl that always picks on the main character. Except it's HER story.

And, because it humanizes that stereotype of the mean girl bully, this manga is already awesome. But everything else about it is good, too; the art, the realism (Hatori looks like a wreck when she cries, for instance, as opposed to having big bubbly tears streaming down her face prettily), the other characters (Nakajima my queen!!!), the philosophical statements... it's a good one.

Update: so I think this manga got dragged out for a little longer than necessary; and Hatori kind of flip flopped back and forth and back and forth with her feelings in a way that got progressively irritating, but... still, I don't know. I really like the whole idea of "everyone's the heroine of their own story." And taking a character that's almost universally unlikable and making us root for them. But I did kind of... get really frustrated with the lack of consistent emotional growth. It was like one step forward, eighty steps backwards. And I do wish Hatori was able to develop some more positive aspects to balance out her negativity, but... but still. I think this manga had so much potential and it was still a nice read for a while.

HEAR ME OUT

Okay, for all of you out there who has already read this manga, you might be thinking WHAT IN THE F*CK'S TARNATION IS GOING ON HERE. For everyone who hasn't read it yet, give it a try before you let other people's review convince you it isn't good. Yea, I was cursing at this manga when I was reading it but I thought it was kind of special. Not your everyday cliche.. At first I was like what the hell is the mangaka doing.. but I started to notice the meaning was deeper. Maybe she was trying to show us that when we're at that age, we were reckless and confused. Rita was confused. Hatori was confused. And that's why they two timed. They didn't understand what their really meant. HEAR ME OUT.

What caught me first about this manga was the drawing. The heroine isn't always pretty. She can look so ridiculous but it's still so funny. It gets me cracking every time. But as time went on, I REALLY WANTED TO FCKING SHAKE HER. The number 1 character that I like the most is the supporting best friend "Nakajima". She's the smartest one out of the bunch but no one ever takes her advice..it's maddening

Hatori: This crazy woman! WTH IS WRONG WITH HER. WHY CAN'T SHE GIVE UP. I mean I thought she was so strong for not giving up at first but he is a TOTAL jerk..He doesn't even LOVE her as a woman. More like a sister. They both don't understand that. When she finally..FINALLY starts falling in love with Hiromitsu..Rita was like..I love you..REALLY? FCKING REALLY NOW?
Rita: HE IS SO SELFISH. HE CAN'T MAKE UP MIND. He doesn't care about anyone else's happiness but his own...knowing Hatori will ALWAYS be there for him no matter what and at his beck and call..-_- He's just a lonely, cruel boy
Hiromitsu: My only one complaint is that he was messing around at first..but he fell so in love with her in the end (so far)...ugh I hope Hatori ends up with him or I'll punch a b*tch. She's really stupid with her feelings -_-

I unexpectedly like this a lot. It's hilarious and really unlike most shoujos that I read. I really did not expect to like this. It's refreshing and smart. I agree with Criminal Intent on all points. Anyway, I'm really enjoying this right now and hopefully it will develop into a really good series. I have high hopes for this one. biggrin

This is a manga where a plain girl falls in love with a guy and another girl that's been bestfriends with the guy secretly loves him, but no matter what she does, she always loses to the plain girl.This manga is exactly that but for once its from the jealous bestfriends point of view smile I like it .


EDIT: hmm went back to it and I skimmed through the while thing.. Found it boring...

from the very beginning to the very end of this series, i've loved it all the way through.
i'm glad hatori isn't your typical protagonist and even though she didn't end up with the person the majority of the fandom wanted her to, she was happy and i think as the series progresses, that's what everyone wants for her to be the most (well, for me anyway).
i don't know guys, this manga was just great. i feel so upset that it's over but at the same time i feel so glad because she's finally found her happiness.
it's definitely worth a go! you won't regret it.

When I first picked this up I could tell the story could be different. The story constantly made me go through moral dilemma, contemplating I should really hate or empathize with the heroine. It really comes in a unique story, I'll give it that. But the way it was presented was just...so contrived. All I'm could feel on every page was the manga begging to be acknowledged as 'unique' 'different' 'refreshing'. And the manga is, but I feel this is a very poor method of storytelling. It was funny, and had some not typically eye catching but stylish art. Again, some interesting situations albeit sometimes annoying to my biased reader heart.

This manga started as a relly well done satire of the most typical shojo manga but writen from the point of the "bad guy", the evil rival. This was funny as hell and you really wanted rita to never return her feelings.

BUT THEN the mangaka had no more ideas left and swiched from satire to the real stuff. Everything seems just annoying now and after a lot of people spoiled the end, I don't even know, if I want to read the rest of it.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At the beginning, I really love this manga. It have an amazing and unique storyline, and I like how the author sometime draw the character with such a funny face. I laugh everytime I see Hatori's comedic face. But after I read the spoiler about the ending, I was really disappointed. Why she choose Rita? Everybody can see Hiromitsu kun's way tooo better than Rita.
Ugh, just like the title, Hatori fail as a heroine. How stupid!
