Once you fall for someone, you can't stop the love. A strange encounter spurs the meeting of Amakusa Ryou, a high spec businessman who's loose with women, and his high school sister's best friend, Arima Ichika. From there, he falls madly in love. On the one hand, he approaches her with almost too straight-forward methods, while she responds simply disgusted, insulting him without hesitation...and he takes it as her way of showing love. This is a romantic comedy about a twisted elite employee and a normal otaku high school girl.

Love it. Super funny and sweet. Managed to get my husband to watch the anime (which follows the manga pretty closely) and he loves it too.

The only thing I can say is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
don’t give up on our guy, he is real, he has the FL best interests at mind

Raw spoilers
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the ML has been noticing the change towards him from the FL and got scared because of his past as he has never been in a healthy relationship and has always been a jerk. He feared he could not be good enough for her and has been avoiding her. His friend got him a good lecture and it seems both ML and FL are ready to give their all. Let’s just hope they have a proper and good conversation

About the other lady your talking about
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she confessed to him yes, but he rejected her. He mentioned his non corresponded love and about how young the FL was. The lady told him that she wouldn’t give up and would be the most natural and better seen to society if they dated, which he painfully considered but realized that no matter how hard he tried he loved the FL. He rejected her and was honest and she told him that probably the reason that she fell for him was because of the change in personality he had since meeting the FL. And now the lady supports him and told him to try his best

I agree with the "if not being taken seriously" comment!
It's pretty entertaining if you're looking at it from that perspective.
Not sure what you read @YanaseRyoko, but I'm on ch54
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
& Ryou does not have a change of heart. Ichika has finally realized/acknowledged her feelings & their friends are helping the progression. Still looks like it could potentially be a while, though I hope they just sit down & have a frank discussion at this point.

I would say that the reason for the romance is quite cliche, that is the male lead who presumably a womanizer and was not turned down before now gets rejected by the female lead.
I was somehow kinda into the female lead in the beginning, she is quite different, still acting hysterically but seems to stand her ground. The male lead is an obssessive stalker who would not take no for an answer and probably has been arrested in real life for predatory behaviours towards an underage. But this is a shoujo so he kinda gets away easily by his good look, which suggests the right attitude for these types of romance: read it and forget it. Viewer discretion though.

it has a nice female lead with guts and that bastard. Im not even mad about the age gap cause I kinda like it. but this has 43 chapters and only 16 were translated to english (like really) every chapters has less than 20 pages.

The raws that I saw broke my heart cause he has a change of heart. That new woman who appeared and him, deserves to be together cause both are a piece of shit. Im mad.
The fuckboy is back ladies.

...only if you put it in a serious perspective. This manga is an obvious comedy, so take it as it is and don't take it seriously. There are so many other worse shoujo manga that is actually targeted at younger people that sends perhaps more worse messages than this. Also this is a Josei, so I would assume that younger readers wouldn't even pick this up. As a vet shoujo reader I like it. It's a bit fresh and definitely hilarious. A nice quick light read~

@YanaseRyoko Should have put a spoiler tag, but thanks to that I'll drop it. I'm really bummed by that spoiler. If what you said is true, I hope that the female lead chooses someone else, like that certain classmate (which I don't think will happen cuz he's the main lead). Okay, I skimmed the raws so far, but idk not sure if it's developing to what you said. Then again I can't read it haha.

This manga is a sh***t show. The male protagonist is such a horrible guy. To win over the girl he basically forces herself on her with emotion. He doesn't do it sexually since this a is a "fluff" story but when she tells him that she doesn't want gifts, that they make her uncomfortable he basically disregards that and tells her no I don't care if you hate me I will keep on doing it. He wants to know everything about her and asks his sister who is friends with her for advice but nonetheless it's creepy. This guy is around 20-30yrs old and he's creeping on a high schooler. Does this ring any read flags? For me it does and ESPECIALLY with the way he's acting. I can not get over how badly this romance is being portrayed. I fear young girls reading this will think this is an okay relationship when it is 100% not. This isn't cute, it's not enviable this is plain predatory. The way the male lead falls in love is questionable as well. So he falls in love at first sight and then on after falls in love everything she does? This isn't realistic. I could go on and on about how sh*tty this is but I won't I think those reading this comments get the picture.
Not good.
Don't read.
