Ignore the comments below me the char is by every means incredibly weak but he atleast admits it to himself and attempts to fix his mistakes even though he goes about it the wrong way like HARD lol. As for the attempted rape it was merely a suggestion with a little rip of her shirt to her bra and u can see what it is from the cover on this site if u scroll up. it doesnt go any further.

Yet another project from "IM Dal-Young" and we follow the ups and downs of a young aspiring manga artist. Yay! We had this before, but who knows maybe this time it will be more exciting. Though, not with main characters like this. I mean, come on. In the first chapter the male lead, a failure at life, is given a huge career chance by the female lead, a mysterious and successful editor, who by chance lives next door. Just so you know, since it's important, she is female, big-breasted and beautiful, too. But instead of actually doing something worthwhile like working "seriously" the male lead rather whines all day because it is so "hard" and he doesn't get "it". He does not even really try! In the end, for the simple reason that he is just so frustrated at his own miserable life, he attempts to rape this very editor. Hello? How stupid can you get? But the thing is, she actually says it's okay. HUH?

Having read the first 5 chapters which includes the 1st arc plus a bit of the 2nd, I must say the shallowness of this manga makes cliche shoujo seem Mariana Trench deep. Like in most works from this author, the initial idea might have potential but he can't develop a story to save his life. Read this only if you like cat fights...

Another annoying thing about this manga is that he obviously makes references to himself, bragging about and advertising his work...

Pathetic male protagonist in about all character traits, check. Crazy female characters, check. One of those said crazy female characters gets assaulted in some way, i.e raped, attempted rape, good ole session of S&M, check. That's just within one chapter.

I would say the plot itself smells like a self-insert, but Dal-Young either can't or doesn't want to draw. So nothing special and just another notch into Dal-Young's belt. I'm just curious how the hell he's being allowed to pop these out one after another? He should stick to onshots or nothing that goes beyond one volume, because he seems to lose interest after awhile and kills the story itself. UxU is a shining example.

The only thing decent is the art and it's not even his doing.

I hate weak main characters and the male lead seems to be one of em. I was annoyed at how easily he believed his former editor, then all of a sudden he starts to rape the chick? I will have to wait for the next chapter before i decide if this is terrible or not.

This look really interesting for a starter. Usually I have to read at least 2 or 3 chapter in a manga to get really hooked but, with just the first chapter I already want to read more. As expected of IM Dal-Young. Great work!!!!
I'm giving this a 10 for now and I am hoping it won't drag like the other series cause I don't want to drop the rating!!
