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!

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.

LOL this manga is not hilarious as it's sought out to be !
I swear , there are funny times , but it's so sad for the protagonist !
I read translations of most of the manga , and i really can't predict the ending -___- . i don't know who's gonna end with who . but the characters are annoying at times !

that has worries.

This starts off as a funny manga. But the question is whether it would keep it up.
The main problem comes from the second boy character. A walking shoujo cliche that this series that's otherwise had fun turning cliches around for humour is now playing straight. Unless it turns out even the second boy is just going after the other girl, the premise will end up being a bit of a lie.And a lot less funny as well. The manga in general is starting to get confused on whether it'll be more straight or comedy.

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.

I was reading this and my first impression is that the heroine is delusional, stupid and annoying but then, she can be anyone of us. She can be me. I can relate to her experience (and thus, reflect on my own story). When you're a teenager and it's your first love, you may act the way she acts and although now you may think how foolish it was for her to behave the way she does in the story. Anyhow, it's a good read.

The story is interesting in the sense that it feels as though it might not end up the way. But I think that the comment on how Hatori is a trainwreck pretty much nailed it. I find that the characters are very extreme. Rita also taking up the female role with Hatori (who is indecisive, inconsiderate, etc)...

EDIT: save your time and skip this. it just another typical shoujo

I do like this series though, only because I'm rooting for Kousuke because there is nothing redeeming about Rita's character. Like throughout the released chapters, there is really no reason to fall for Rita. He's attractive but I feel like Hatori's only justification of liking Rita is because he's her childhood friend.

It's not like the other manga and I found MOST characters likable. Surprisingly, I did not like Rita or his girlfriend but everyone else seems good. I'm on scanlations ch8, summaries ch21. biggrin
Art is very good. Couldn't ask for better. I love the funny drawing styles.
Also, the humour is great and I love how modern the series is.

I was really surprised by this--and I read a lot of manga and I seldom post a review. The heroine is so cute and so honest with her own feelings; give it a chance! It's really really unique and made my heart throb for hours.

this story is about the girl having heroine complications, thinking that someone may have stolen her heroine position with the male protagonist. and the one that stole it is a girl who just recently confessed lol, a four eyed glasses nerd type of girl. the male protagonist is her childhood friend, so she always reckons that she's definitely the heroine of their story. (shes known everything about him, blah blah) so she reckons no one takes her position since the guy always rejects girls, but accepts this glasses nerd one, who he helped coz of something.. (i forgot the reason lmao) but i don't think he likes her, i think he likes the girl with heroine issues, but it gets harder for them since he's not making any moves on taking her and theres a new hottie swooping her away. xD A. MUST. READ. its like looking at the hilarious point of view of the antagonist, but in this story, shes the heroine! ahahaha. and the guy likes her. but typical heroines are more like the glasses nerd, shy, boring lmao.
