Tomo-chan Is a Girl! | Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! Review. Romance about a muscular boy and an even muscular woman.

Tomo-chan starts off with a confession.... that our dense MMC doesn't understand. The main heroine is an incredibly tomboyish girl as such she's always been treated like a boy (honestly its almost 50/50 her fault) by her best friend and her Crush. Jun is character made of steel and is incredibly, unnecessarily chiseled. Along side with the help of her 2 other friends can Tomo find a way to make Jun see her as a woman and hopefully make him fall in love with her.

First thing you'll notice is its large ass amount of chapters. Relax its a short and sweet series. Its a daily manga with 1 page representing each chapter. Similar to Mousou telepathy. The series is 8 volumes long. Its also much shorter than your average read being only 140 pages but at the same time being a faster read than your average 4koma manga.

Now lets talk characters. They are spanktastic. I really enjoyed the chemistry between. They are likable with their more than friends and less than lovers like relationship (Jun and Tomo). Tomo-chan's difference between her feminine side and her boyish is done incredibly well. Its this contrast and the reactions about the people around her that makes this series so interesting and hilarious. The side characters are pretty funny too. Especially the=side-main duo gundou and Carol. They are just a joy to watch especially due to there conflicting personalities. The author is so good at making contradictions and contrasts absolutely hilarious. I laughed quite a lot in this manga. More so than i thought i would. The romance is also surprisingly good. Not just when it happens. But there is constant tension and chemistry from the start. So watching it all unfold is always fun.

The problem with this series is the serious side. I just could not take any of the *serious* moments seriously. Maybe they weren't supposed to be taken seriously but they weren't funny either so moments like those always feel wasted. They were some that were below average... those were better ones of the lot. Remember when i said the romance is always fun? I lied. The romance takes hits here and there. More specifically the Firework festival. Its kind of annoying that the author decided to pull this kind of nonsense. He pulls it again but though not forgivable its still pretty damn funny.

TLDR: This is a nice quick read. Though there are quite a few issues and 1 big issue. I think considering the fact that i liked the series enough to actually remember the names of the 4 main characters i guess i'll let this series barely get away with a 7/10. Also the ending is fine if you binge it.

Horrible Conclusion

The ride was enjoyable. The wrap up was terrible. Considering the nature of the series being a 4-koma and the premise of the story, the result is a disappointment and waste of time committing to the series.

You can probably binge this very quickly, so it won't be too bad to read in one sitting. Not the destination but the journey, if you like that in your romcoms.

The actual story is completely translated, only the epilogue is left so if you're the type to wait for a manga to be finished to read it, then read this.

I liked it, it's extremely funny at times and the story is solid. It's easy and quick to get through so worth trying out if you're not sure. You definitely won't waste your time.

A very light "read"

This is a 4-Koma, which is the perfect format for this light and funny story. The characters are all loveable and the story line is entertaining. The reason for the high score is because it delivers what it sets out to do in less than 30 seconds per release.

It is fun. If you expect depth and a roller coaster of emotions, then do not bother reading 4-koma formats.

As of date (chapter 841), the story seems to be on its final stretch and currently the author is on a (long) break. I would recommend for those who want to read it to wait a few more months as it may end by then.

First time

First time i rate a series with one.
I was against rating something 1, I thought it was simply not possible. But I felt all of the good stuff this series has were utterly destroyed by a single matter that i simply can't overlook. And it all occurred in a single page (page 595), and that is, the author thought it was a good idea to dump all the development the MC had, to make it something that really didn't make sense.
I really don't know what the author was thinking, did he thought it was it funny? but with that single change, i dropped the series instantly (imagine me dropping the book on the floor while reading).

I really liked the series at the beginning, i didn't care what some social justice hypocrites said, i even looked forward to the daily release. I thought it was funny and best of all, with good characters. Curse the editor, he probably thought it was a good idea to turn it into a generic weeb crap.

Progress Trick

Rating: 8.0  / 10.0
So I didn't start reading this series until it was at about Chapter 350 due to all the talk surrounding it and man did I catch in nno time.
This story is funny and different. You've got the tomboy girl and the most sense male character I've probably seen. Maybe on purpose sometimes. And you've got the straight talking friend and the cotton candy both of which add fun moments in between the main couples antics. Also do not believe people when they say it progression is slow. While it may seem like it you have to realise that having 500 one page chapters is a fraction of for example Nisekoi.

Overall if you like romance and comedy in small portions you will probably love this story.

to me, tomo chan is that ongoing manga u started reading after hearing all the hype & u genuinely enjoy it in the beginning & the daily updates r friggen great..

idk the plot right now in the recent chapters is supposed to be getting REALLY GOOD like its finally advancing!1! but I just feel so indifferent >.>

I'm starting to feel that all of the waiting 4 the two mc's to get together made me lose that spark I had when I started like.. meh. but MAYBE its just ME idk ok :/

I'm only keeping up with this manga bc I'm already too far along to quit; plus misuzu+carol=best girls af lmao
