Machida-kun seems like the perfect brother, son, and student because he loves people. Helpful when he needs to be, but puts himself down when he feels like a total failure. However, the people that surround his daily life are there as a reminder as why Machida-kun needs no improvements because the people love Machida.

Machida is the only character in this story.

Machida is a good guy. A very interesting protag who grows as the story progresses. There is so much to love about his character.

The problem though is that he is the only real character in this manga. Everyone else feels like one-note boring characters. They do not grow, theres nothing interesting about them. They only feel like a tool used for the author grow Machida and to spout out some cheezy, motivational dialogue. Even the main female lead is just an echo to repeat the good qualities of Machida instead of being an actual character herself. Her character makes no sense, she apparently has some background story of constantly being picked up by guys so she follows them and manipulates them to buy her food and ditching them or something. But nothing in her character personality represents her backstory, she acts like a completely different person to one who would do such a thing. It was just a tool by the author to say a message.

Everything in this manga is so corny. I don't know if it is just bad translation but nobody in the real world talks and behaves like they do in the manga. Everyone spouts out some idealistic drivel. It makes sense for Machida to do it, I understand why his character does. But throughout the manga it uses the same format. Machida will have some trouble understanding someone, then he helps some random person, then the random person gives some motivational speech that Machida will then use to solve his problem.

Its like this is some simulated world where Machida is the only real person and everyone else is some weird AI where you can barely perceive theres just something a little bit off with them.

I don't know what's this mangas power, but every time a read a chapter my mood increases more then with others mangas, I get positive and I feel more simpathy towards people aroud me. This manga may look just another shoujo but it is much more! It's teaching me a lot.

It started fairly good for me, but then it became increasingly, glaringly forced and even cheesier.
To the point there is no other way to describe Machida as an alien. Take a grown man born and raised in another planet and drop it in human society, that is how that character feels to me.

"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.
