nice development

while the main cast have gone near their respective goals (as ch 137), the others chara is explored and paired, like ishigami
others chara is still left as side kick like chika or the maid of shinomiya

i enjoy the read, until now it's still rosy highschool love comedy, hope won't go to others direction

the author good at keeping paces, so you won't get bored
plot somehow easy to predict, but also leaves many possibility... so bettet let it be... don't think too hard abou it

fair enough screentime for each main and supporting characters. every characters are lovable... even for the most negative character

It’s in a good place right now

Currently, most of the characters’ backstories and personalities have been revealed and feels like it’s coming to a conclusion unlike other romance series like Nisekoi. It’s probably not going to end yet, but each chapter is very enjoyable and the humor is sharp and sometimes even meta.

It doesn't stay the same

I've read some reviews of people criticizing the fact that the premise of the manga kinda got lost after a while. While there's a bit of truth in that, it's for good reasons; this manga plays well with keeping the status quo without making it stagnating. The characters develop in an organic way, so it's just natural that their interactions change as well; but it doesn't happen all of a sudden, it's a slow and believable process. While the characters change, they never contradict who they are, and the comedy keeps being on point, just changing range from time to time. This way the manga has managed to stay fresh, when keeping the same formula all along would have killed it in the long run.

really like it. not often do u see both characters desire each other the same amount. usually in romance mangas the male character does nothing but chase the female character. this is like as close to 50/50 you can get in terms of give and take.

Forgot its own roots

It started out very good, both Main Characters had equal abilities for the 'war of love' in which the one to confess first loses.
As it went on, one gets already suspicious of it rather early. The male character does not take the initiative at all (not entirely true, 1 time he pretended to be asleep *slow clap*). The female is doing the most planning, like setting traps.
Now it is at a point that the female lead character jumps in just to get ridiculed most of the time, while the male one has a a few 'shining hero' scenes.
There is a huge imbalance now between the characters and that killed the manga for me.

The comedy is still good, but it doesn't save the manga after the loss of its own premise.

A Brilliant Satire  
by Vendbot3000
January 7th, 2017, 5:28pm
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai is a satirical romantic comedy with a razor sharp wit. It follows the story of the student counsel at a rich high school, and the budding relationship between its president and vice president, which is impeded by their pride and stubornness. The story takes mundane scenarios from typical highschool romance and turn them on their heads, with the main charcters going to hilarious lengths to win the upper hand in an ultimately futile competition. The characters are genre savy, but are in many ways too savy for their own good. They often end up thwarting their own plans by being too clever or obscure. The writing makes great use of the contradictions between what characters say and what they are thinking or feel. The art supports this brilliantly by bringing the characters' extreme emotions out even behind their reserved expressions such as the titular character's signature death glare.

The manga avoids an extensive supporting cast, instead choosing to extensively develop a small core of five (to date) characters with a few others that show up occasionally. This has allowed the author to move past just presenting standard rom-com cliches. Kaguya is particularly dynamic: sometimes she is a rich tsundere, other times a xanatos gambler, occasionally a murderess and sometimes just a sensitive girl in love.

For combining hip-busting gags with satirical wit, Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai is easily one of the best romantic comedies I've read, and deserves a 10/10.

Started out strong but is declining atm

It was good when it was a monthly series. The interaction between two main characters were unique, refreshing and interesting. But when it's turned into weekly, the quality dropped off. Kaguya became a generic tsundere, and there are fillers like the ramen chapter which is not supposed to be a part of the main story. No more battle of the wits between the two, and that's what I miss the most.

When it started, definitely a 10, or a 9 at the very least. But now it's a 7 to me, which is still fine but the it isn't up to its former quality.

so fresh and funny and pretty clever and very cute. this manga would make a great anime, with the right studio of course. It shouldnt be like a filler series either, the story and concept is just to good to be just a mere filler series.

Funny, cute, great characters -- the hype is justified.

The very start of this series wasn't doing it for me, and I immediately started thinking it must not be for me or something. I really spoke too soon, because with chapter 4 and everything after it I quickly turned around, regularly laughing at all I was seeing. The key was fleshing out the two main characters a little more; that got me to start really liking them. This is indeed a really funny manga, the hype wasn't a lie. Wrote a full review on the series going over things in more detail.
