From Viz:

Risa Koizumi is the tallest girl in class, and the last thing she wants is the humiliation of standing next to Atsushi Otani, the shortest guy. Fate and the whole school have other ideas, and the two find themselves cast as the unwilling stars of a bizarre romantic comedy duo.

Lovely Complex Plus is actually volume 17 with the final chapter called Love Com Final. The first two chapters are about before Koizumi Risa and Otani Atsushi met each other. The third chapter is about their first encounter and a little bit of what happens to them after the ending of Lovely Complex.

*Contains a side story called Hoshi ni Natte mo Aishiteru (Even When I Become A Star, I'll Still Love You) in vol 12:
Reina wakes up surprisingly in her boyfriend's room. But it seems that she passed away three days ago...

In 2004 Lovely Complex received the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo.

I finished Lovely Complex recently, and I must say, it's quite the masterpiece.
At first, it was a little weird with the height thing and how it made the biggest obstacle in their romance, but that all changes later. Although, the plot was kind of cliche, I love the way it was told and how realistic it was; not exactly your typical shoujo.
The comedy was also a nice touch to the story.

Highly recommended.

If you're looking for a shoujo with a strong heroine and complex characters, then your next read should not be Lovely Complex. Risa embodies the weak, boy-dedicated heroine, and the other characters are generally of the same fare.

Lovely Complex is certainly one of the better girly works. The plot makes use of cliche devices in a way that isn't completely terrible, and the humor was one of the manga's best aspects. If you don't take it for more than a typical high school shoujo, then you'll definitely enjoy it.

This manga do it job well.So funny,Too much hilarious (can't remember how many time it laugh out loud), some romantic scene and very few serious event. Even sometime Risa make the face that look so ugly to the level of ugliest but still it's just hilarious now and then.

Well, I haven't finished it, I'm on volume 11. But so far, this is one of the only mangas that make me bust out laughing in the middle of the bookstore and start guffawing like a donkey. (this and also Love Attack!) Ah, it has an ok romance to me, it is different, but I wish there would be less wishy-washyness on Otani's side. Oh well! I recommend this book to all who want to burst out laughing with tears in their eyes.

This is one of the best manga that I've ever read. The couple is different from your typical shoujo. They don't fall in love at first sight or in two-three days. Instead their relationship starts off awkward but still hilarious and I love that Risa and Otani's relationship develops and doesn't stay the same from beginning to end.
Anyone who's looking for a feel good manga with lots of comedy, romance and a very different couple would enjoy this. It's one of the few manga over ten volumes that I haven't skipped through. Definitely a good read, not boring or lackluster at all.

Deffinetly good manga.
But it somehow lacks the charm of kansai-ben(kansai dialect) the anime has.
Ending feels empty. I wanted something more. Real ending happened several volumes before. And there was nothing to add. Classical peek into the future at least would be good.
I think that LC deserves more than 7 i gave to it, but ending dissapointed me or rather left some kind of empty feeling that I don't like.

this one is really good! it has a really good humor and great plot. i love it because its not like any other shoujo manga, it shows you what love really is. I love the characters in the story, they're not like the ones who are in fairytales, they are not perfect and that's what i like the most.
I highly recommend this to all who are tired of reading fairytale like stories, where everything is perfect, and wants to read something more realistic when it comes to love. ^_^

I'm a normally guy who typically like shounen, I gave a try and find some famous shoujo to read but I got bored quickly. This is the only shoujo I finished reading I and really enjoyed it. A very unique romance, comedy. The girl is pretty stupid but not frustrating, the boy is not cool but manly. Of course, it's totally realistic but somehow there is not so many manga like this, especially a shoujo without a super cool guy.
Well, it's not a masterpiece but u probably like it.

After searching for an addictive love comedy manga, at last I found my prize, this manga will keep u reading till u dig it all, great comedy, excellent plot, haven't seen in other manga a dismatching couple like this one and still pull it to keep together.

Also the maangaka takes time to tell the story of the side couples, and see them bloom.

Liked a lot the evolution of the relationship with their fights (laugh hard) and how the hate becomes lovelove.

For last I didnt put it a 10 because the mangaka couldn't keep up the excellent addicting story till the end but still makes it a great manga to read.

If u wana laught hard, experience the thinkings of a tomboy girl that becomes a girly girly full off lovely love, insecurities worries, jealousy, crying etc...... this is ur manga to read smile
