The premise was interesting, and had a lot of potential. Art is decent, and Chizuru is cool.

However, the MC has the worst personality and its hard to empathize with him. He is narcissistic and selfish, but everything is accepted as if he is justified. It's delusional.

If you read, it requires suspension of belief. I felt my time was wasted. I really wish it could have turned out better.

All the situations are so forced, mc is dumb and the main girl is a unnecessary bitch. She keeps telling the mc is stay away yet keeps lying with him. What? Couldn’t get past ch 3 the main girl was so damn bitchy.

I decided to binge this manga after watching a YouTube video on the artist's life. I thought it was interesting so decided to take a look.

Boy I really felt like I have wasted an entire day. Could've done other stuff, so I had to create an account just for this.

The MC, like others have said, is terribly boring and a huge coward, even by average MC standards. He constantly chickens out and lies and tries to redeem himself through "heart".

The girls, let's briefly discuss them. You've got

Ex girlfriend: Manipulative beeotch who will stop at nothing to break up couples. She actually makes this story more spicy funny enough.

Main girl, the fake girlfriend: She's cool and has an interesting backstory.

Side chick high school girl who has huge crush on MC: she starts off great, the tell em aggressive girl, but lately she's been getting a little annoyingly clingy. Maybe has to due with her young age though.

Shy girl: Wholesome and one of the few people that is good in this show.

Generation Z girl who speaks like an Internet dictionary: not interesting at all.

The series starts off slow but picks up quickly, with character development building including tragic backstories, decent arcs, and drama! But then this recipe appears to repeat over and over again, till it's like beating a dead horse some more. I think I speak for.many people it was exhausting to watch MC f up once again through his cowardliness and the girls to try to cover his butt. By chapter 70 something I was getting fatigued and ended up skimming the rest of the manga in under an hour.

If you like manga which doesn't make too much sense logic wise and has fanservice, this is fine. But plot wise, it's okay at best, and can get repetitive fast.

My recommendation: Skip!

As a lot of people have said, the MC tends to be way too dense in the beginning, and he stays pretty dense throughout. But something I can say is that he's sincere, especially when it comes to the girls he likes. That being said, the relationship between the MC and his rental gf grows very organically and I'm excited to see what this story had in store for the future.

Wishful Fulfillment with a different spin

In most romcom harem series like this the MC is your blank page or at least someone the average guy can relate to. This series takes a different approach by making the MC more of a cowardly and weak willed person without hiding it but even with all these traits the MC is still able to attract the attention of not just girls but fairly pretty ones. You can't have me believe these young pretty women are dying for the attention of an average looking guy with these traits.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ignoring the fact that the guy had a GF before the series who was pretty but also a psycho lol
The manga screams wishful fulfillment yet some will try to disguise it as some coming of age tale of a young man building himself up through trials and tribulations. Add to that there is not a single prominent male character around makes it even more obvious. (Can't have prominent male characters outside of the MC in harem series as it shines the spotlight on how average or lacking the MC is) The author may have had a good idea going and it could have gone the much deeper route but the fact that it is a harem series destroys any possibility of that.

From the writing my guess is the author didn't have the know it all to write a deeper series. Most of the story is just misunderstandings caused by lack of communication so your typical romcom shtick. I'll give the author mad props for his art which is the saving grace of the manga. Writing wise the only way this series can be more than it is(at least imo)is if the ending of the series ends with a bit of youthful disappointment for the MC. Not that he should die or face irreparable harm but if its just him getting the girl in the end then I rest my case.

Sadly for me I couldn't get into the series past ch30. I didnt feel the story was going anywhere and if it was I guess I just didn't like where it was going. People have said that they like how "realistic" the story is especially the MC. All I have is one word "Harem". The single fact that a low self confidence dude like MC has a harem of girls interested takes any credibility of "realistic" away. How easy would life be for every guy(maybe even girls?) out there with low self-esteem had a harem who they could count on for comfort(emotional or physical). If you enjoy wishful fulfillment tales that fine I do too, but no reason to dress up a pig like a princess.

I really wanted to like this. Interesting plot, great art, and some funny moments, but OH DEAR GOD I HATE THE MC!!! So goddamn stupid and pathetic. After reading 10 chapters he shows no signs of changing (or even potential to change) and he keeps lying which makes him so unlikable. If he does change later in the story, then it should have happened sooner.

One character can't save the whole manga

I've read up to chapter 42 and I can take no more.

In the beginning, it was not that bad. I mean, I disliked Kazuya since the very first chapters, but I decided to read on. And it was just getting worse and worse.
The protagonist was so, so unlikeable. So full of shit. And his relationships with the three girls... He treated Chizuru badly, for example:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- she was taking his side when his ex was talking bad things about him, even if she doesn't need to, and Kazuya was like "yeah, whatever" and didn't even go after her when she went out, even though he should because technically they were still dating
- he was strictly using her, all the time promising to end up things between them, but then pushing her to help him out again and again; yes, he was paying her, but he was also overusing her help
- he was like "for her sake, for her sake" all the time but actually, he was doing nothing for her, only for himself, he was just justifying his actions this way.

He was dragging out this trial with Ruka, which started to be ridiculously stupid after this 10-20 chapters. And even though his ex was supposed to be the bad one, he was clearly treating her bad during their relationship and even after.
Just... no. He was so bad. Reading about him was so tiring.
So how did I survive all this way with him up to chapter 42? The answer brings us to the one good point of this manga. That one point alone deserves all three points I decided to give this manga.
I love Chizuru. I love her as shojo manga protagonist. She is compassionate, cute, and she's trying so hard. She's trying hard at university, at work, achieving her dreams. She's actually a strong, mature girl. She's taking part in all this Kazuya's mess just because she's a good person and feels bad for both him and his grandma. She's actually thinking about others more than herself. But at the same time, I don't see her as a Mary Sure as she has her weak sides too. Seriously, I was reading this manga just and only for her, but at some point even she couldn't save this thing.
We're still a long way before the manga ending, but as a typical shojo manga it is, Kazuya and Chizuru will 100% end up together. And I have to say, I feel bad for Chizuru. She deserves better.

Turning point in a refreshing comedy

I really like this comedy. The art is fine and both MC are interesting.
I really loved also grannies, hope they come back soon on the scene.
Just read chap.31, a real turning point in the story that explain Mizuhara's motivation, a bit surprising. No spoiler, but after this Kazuya could evaluate Ruka a bit
