"Machida desu ga Itsumo Kedaruge"

It's a bit of a stretch but MC is like Sakamoto (from Sakamoto Desu ga?) diluted with Tanaka (from Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge) and it results in a pleasant read.

He is the type of genuinly kind, saint-like person. So selfless... so amazing... Aaaah all the girls and the guys are in love with him, and it is not hard to understand why...
He is so imperfect and plain-looking, which makes his chatacter even more likable. He isn't stupid, he isn't exactly dense, but he is so accepting of others and so kind that people can't help but feel truly touched...

Machida-kin in short is...
+ Saint
+ a chick magnet
+ below average in studies despite being a megane (but he is not stupid)
+ mediocre in cooking (his cooking is not a disaster btw, he can fry eggs- I'm also the same)
+ mediocre in sports

Machida is an ordinary person with a very big heart... But his actions are rational and doesn't borderline stupidity... He is inexperienced in love but girls just naturally falls in love with his actions...

This is definitely a different shoujo manga but I completely love this...
I can't wait to read the rest!!!
Machida-kin is the best ladies man ever...

When I started read first pages, I thought Machida is kind of super perfect protagonist or whatsoever... But, turnout he's a more interesting person than that~ Lol. He's bad at cooking, studying, and athletics, yet he loves people. And that's what makes him soo like-able! I've only read 2 scanslated chapter of this so far, and I would really anticipating for the next chapters~

Usually when there is a character described as someone who is liked, it's always that princey doki doki type character that always has that sickly smile and is perfect at everything; a trope that I feel is just so over done.

On the contrary, Machida-kun seems like the cold honor student type (another trope that I feel is over used), but the author addresses his flaws and set backs in a very realistic and smooth manner. Though it appears to him that he doesn't have many strong points, as the description says, people love him anyway because he loves people. He shows everyone in small ways how much of an importance existence they are which basically sold me to this series and had me reading the chapters over and over again. I actually liked this manga so much I bought 3 volumes in Japanese.
