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.

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 -_-

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!

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...

I started reading it because it has two crossovers with Hirunaka no Ryuusei, and I absolutely adore HnR. At first, I just kept hoping it would get better, but it never really did.

I'd like that Hatori has bad points more if she had any good points to balance them out. She doesn't, really. I'd enjoy watching her struggle if she learned anything from it, but she doesn't. All she does is think about Rita, or think about trying not to think about Rita. He's her entire world, and it's annoying at best, but just as often it's rather disturbing.

Rita started off okay, but once he started dating Adachi, Hatori starting pushing him, and he turns out to be wishy-washy and spineless, the kind of guy who hurts people because he can't make a decision.

A lot of people seem to dislike Adachi, probably because she's treated like a personification of the Perfect Shoujo Heroine trope. I haven't read to the end yet, so I don't know what happens to her, but I feel like Hatori and Rita are kind of ruining her. Adachi has dreams of her own, beyond being with Rita, and they're just dying.

Nakajima's great, though. If there were a manga with Nakajima as the heroine, I would read it so hard. And Hiromitu's all right.

I'll probably keep reading to the end, simply because I've gotten as far as I have, but at this point it feels like I'm just trying to beat it. I already know how it ends, having knowingly read a spoiler in another comment. I think knowing just keeps me from getting my hopes up.

Also, a note for those wanting to read the crossovers... They were both written after Heroine Shikkaku finished, so yes, they do contain a certain spoiler. Not that it's a surprising one, though.

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.

Just gets to me soo much. Hatori is a character so many girls can relate with, including myself. Every chapter I read so far was truly realistic, sad, and comedic all at the same time. Personally, the characters can be too much at times, but this series is really worth reading(:

I'm really into this manga right now. I'm pretty surprised that I like it as much as I do. Sure, the characters can come across as fairly annoying every now and then but despite this, I still want to keep reading on. I do really hope Hatori doesn't end up with Rita though. I can't seem to understand want she sees in him. Kousuke shipper all the way! Really can't wait for the next chapter to come out. Anyone have a clue when that'll be? Sigh, if only I could read Japanese so I could get my hands on the raws.
