Quite good

Honestly this kind of thing is neglected a lot on my list. Most are too cute, plain cute. Shikimori has a similar emphasis on cute points as a weapon. Some of the initial introductory chapters are quite repetitive but over time the story does not really focus on the perfection of Shikimori the Cool Girlfriend. Although it's vague, I feel that her relationship with Izumi is progressing. Progress like a snail, slow, smooth with little external shock. The interaction wasn't just filled with the two of them to the point of turning the surrounding environment into a dead character. I like this the most because I really get to know each character as an individual in the story. And the portion of their appearance is fairly balanced.

Going back to the romance that I think is more than enough to meet your daily dose of sugar, they are constantly struggling to solidify the resolution of each other's feelings in a somewhat clumsy and funny way. A typical light confession but its seriousness from time to time is well illustrated. Feel free to despise Izumi for being pathetic and lame (like the previous me), but I personally think Izumi doesn't need to completely change. His intentions and efforts were sufficient. His sincerity should be appreciated. Same is the case with Shikimori who wants to look cute in front of her boyfriend, but no matter what the circumstances are they still like each other. There are still many good things that can be enjoyed throughout dozens of chapters.

The romance is cute, and it's undeniably deserving of its high ratings.

...but, you know, you have to be ABLE to appreciate that gender-roles aren't the norm, if not reversed. In this case we have a truly awesome FMC, willing and able to go out and protect her man, be proactive, but still super cute and feminine. And no, that's not at all an insult. She can be proactive and feminine, but the MC can't do the same thing? He can't be caring and kind and still be masculine? Nope, apparently not. He's a total and complete wimp. Admittedly, it's part of his character setting that he's 'unlucky', but unlike, say something from a standard battle type shounen, he doesn't toughen up at all. He's downright pathetic. He's a herbivore, and is constantly being protected, and never seems to grow.

I'll be honest and say I dropped at like 20 chapters, so I can't say beyond that, but that's still a couple of volumes in, and enough to get a grasp on the series. I dropped it when he got jealous of his GF for being popular. He's a stereotypical beta protag that I personally despise. Maybe he does grow, but to be frank I'll doubt it ever happens because while cute, the entire premise of this manga seems to be 'herbivore MC is protected by his awesome GF, who then shows unbearably cute sides'. So frankly if he ever grew to be more of a character the manga would stop from being a one-trick-pony, and turn into a gimmick less story.

So yeah, I can see why people like this, and I wouldn't call it overhyped, just that... it's not my cup of tea.
