Really interesting point of view!

I thought it was really interesting how the main protagonist is basically the 'rival' girl from any other shoujo manga. It was really cool to see everything happen from the other side of things, though I can see why it could be frustrating if you were reading it like you would a usual manga, expecting the protagonist to end up with the guy she initially falls for.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean, first she loses her rich boyfriend to a poor girl, then she dates somebody who is already spoken for because he keeps hitting on her, and THEN her new boyfriend dumps her for a girl in the hospital who thinks she’ll only be able to get better if he dates her.
I know I’ve read all those scenarios before, but not from this angle. As long as you go into the manga kind of expecting to root for the other pairings, I think you’ll enjoy it more.

I found Yuka to be a refreshing lead - as someone else pointed out, she's definitely not a shy/withdrawn type, or a tomboy type, or even an endearingly clumsy type, which sets her apart from many other shoujo protagonists. She doesn't really change who she is when she's with a guy she likes, and while she's popular, she's not really a 'leader' in the class (nor does she immediately go for a convenient delinquent who doesn't follow the rules/isn't interested in her like everyone else). If a guy expresses interest in her (and he’s cute!), she’ll probably date him, and develop feelings for him after. Which, in a lot of ways, I think is really realistic, especially for a high school girl - it isn’t always mutual love right away, or even an initial rejection that eventually grows into love.

Not to say this manga was perfect, because it was really too short and underdeveloped, especially with the final pairing, and none of the characters or relationships really touched me (probably on account of, again, the manga being very short) … but it was still nice to read, and I will probably go back through it again at some point.

It was a great story but just wasn't fit to be real. I mean I love the artwork and all but
it was rather to unrealistic. I mean the guys seemed more of just douches but also I understand the fact that love isn't always as planned but I would say this is a good 5/10

slightly terrible? i kinda couldn't tear my eyes from it until the end, like a train wreck... i didn't get all too attached to the characters, and for being three volumes there wasn't that much development... although the relationships (many) were somewhat realistic, they weren't very worth getting attached to. when she finally found "love" it was kinda a joke at that point in my opinion.

this was just... not terrible, but a little above? idk, if you like drama and relationships and mistakes? you might like this. just not something that will ever stand out to me.

it's fun to read, and i think the romance seems pretty realistic to me, since i experienced one of the romance story in this manga, and i feel the same way she did. and its just enjoyable expect the guys looks very similar.

and i think that hiro should be with toko at the ending. ^^ bad it didn't comes true.

Random Walk should be named Random Dating

I agree with the rest of the reviewers here, the name shouldn't have been Random Walk, instead it should have been Random Dating, as that's what the main character does all the freaking time.

Random Walk stars main character Yuka. She's had a few boyfriends already, and now she's a first year in high school. She meets a random boy, and decides she likes him. She asks to be his girlfriend, he says yes. Chapters go on, and they break up. Yuka meets a new boy and decides she likes him. They date, they break up. Rinse and repeat for 3 more times.

Random Walk offers almost nothing new. The art is bland and the main character's design gets lost in the rest of the shoujo genre art. She's nothing special. She's got a rather flat personality, and the only thing we see her 'liking' apart from boys, is taking pictures. All the boys have zero personality too, and very questionable morals.

Since the characters are so bland, you don't really feel like reading the rest anymore, since you don't care what happens to any of them. Sure the manga tries to portray a more realistic way of teen dating, since I've known plenty of girls myself who were exactly like Yuka (randomly dating guys they don't know, and breaking up within 3 days to a week), but there was one thing that really bothered me about this realistic portrayal. There was no jealousy. You'd think that since they're teenagers, and they've dated plenty of times before, that their current girlfriend or boyfriend would get jealous of their past relationships, or would get jealous if they saw them with another girl/boy.

But there's absolutely no jealousy in this manga. The only 'conflict' this manga has is that you know they're going to break up, and you're skimming through the pages, waiting for this to happen. I'm also very surprised that nothing else happened besides kissing. Where's the sexual tension when you're in a relationship? Like the jealousy part, it's non-existent.

I wouldn't recommend reading Random Walk. It's not really enjoyable, with bland characters who you don't care about, little to no plot, and nothing ever progresses further than kissing. That, and the ending was cut very short.

Honestly, this really isn't one of Wataru-sensei's best works... it could have been better >.> the plot is average and it's too much to keep reading on. Sigh I wouldn't recommend this and I stopped reading somewhere in vol 2.

It's a shame that Yoshizumi's art style is so blandly indistinguishable from that of so many other artists, because this series is actually moderately interesting.

It's a quite rare shoujo romance that lacks idealization of love or melodrama, but doesn't go the other direction into angst. It's a fairly low key story about teenagers who get into relationships, but get bored or drift apart and break up. Surprisingly realistic portrayal of innocent emotional immaturity (there are no villains, for example).

It's found a tiny, unique niche to fit in, which makes it worth reading. It isn't actually anything to rave about, though.

The story is nothing special. It's about a girl who goes through a string of boyfriends, has some bad luck with them, and discovers someone who has liked her for a long time. All in all, it's actually a realistic experience of a high school girl who knows how to "like" a lot without falling in love. That's the best part of this series, really - you don't have all the drama and you have a fairly introspective girl, who's not incredibly dumb, who doesn't necessarily fall in love head over heels and create all the angst that goes on forever in other series.

This manga was rather refreshing to me. I mean, I haven't really read a shoujo manga where the heroine was not a shy, "I can't confess" type, or a tomboy type of girl.

I dunno. It's pretty interesting. Even if the end was a bit obvious. Too obvious in my opinion.
