Cutest Shoujo!   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

This is probably the cutest shoujo manga I've read! There's no real plot or character development, but the main character is so far from the typical male lead. The best thing in my opinion isn't even the romance, however, it is the friendship between the two guys. It's the truest form of "broship" I've seen in shoujo.

Really cute and sweet, almost no serious drama, and funny, Ore Monogatari!! is a nice little gem amongst a heap of rocks.

It really is a great mystery for me on why their not in a relationship until now despite the older sister's love interest for Takeo.
Takeo may look like a gorilla but he has his own charms.
I like how he can be kind even if others misjudged and hurt him.
I also like the bond between him and his bestfriend.

It feels so bad that there aren't many chapters available ;_; this manga is so darn sweet.

I think what attracted me to this one is the unusual MC, he ain't no prince that's for sure. I think, most of us in real life have once been in Takeo's position.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's very, VERY hard to not root for Suna's sister, we know she cares deeply about Takeo, but she has never confessed to him which makes me wonder why. She had the upperhand for years

That said, we need moar!

It's so heartwearming. It's nice to see a manga where the self-proclaimed "uglies" aren't actually bishounen/bishoujo in disguise.

Takeo has good points.
I can't wait for the next release.
It would be another remarkable work from Kawahara Kazune-sensei.

I've actually been waiting for this to be scanlated for a while, it definitely was worth it!

It doesn't take itself too seriously and most of the characters are "cookie-cutter" (the big goofy guy, the cool guy and the ditzy, cutsie girl) but the way they interact isn't a cliche at all. I also love the friendship between the two main males, it's something that a girl couldn't break apart.

I just want to say that I really enjoyed this manga.
Usually, I don't like mangas like this, because it's so badly done.

But this i better than most mangas, and its not stretched out to long or crammed into one chapter.
It's the perfect length, told wonderfully, and conveyed alot of feelings.

Read it, very reccomended!

Pretty Good

I love that the main character isn't the pretty boy that all the girls like. The picture seemed really weird to me because I thought the big guy was a teacher or something at first, so I'm glad I read it. I thought it was another typical shoujo manga again.

The only thing I'm worried about is if volume 2 is going to be a different story than the first volume because it seems like it's finish. I hope that I can see more of Takeo and Suna.

This manga is a collaboration between two of my favorite mangaka (the creators of Koukou Debut and Yasuko to Kenji) so I knew it'd be full of win, and it IS. It's one of those rare manga where the main character is beautiful on the inside, not so much of a looker on the outside, and REMAINS that way. I've read one too many shoujo where a girl/ guy is considered "ugly" until they take off their glasses and WHA-BAM! they're gorgeous.
The story is addictive. The art is great. Every chapter had me laughing out loud (and I'm quite picky when it comes to humor). Aruko's always been good at creating funny expressions and characters who don't all look the same. It's hard NOT to like Takeo, our protagonist, because he's so funny without really trying to be. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a good laugh and a heart warming story.
