A Secret Cellphone Novelist x The Most Popular Boy in School = Love missions of Absolute Command!
Yukina is secretly the all time best selling cellphone novelist, Yupina. She's in a tight spot since she's never wrote any stories about love before. But for all her reader's sake she'll try to experience what love is like. When she accidentally picks up Shigure's student handbook and discovers his true face, she blackmails him. "Fall in love with me!" The ultimate Love Mission starts now!
Himuro Yukina, known as the "Absolute Zero Snow-woman" is a cold and observant girl. In addition, she is actually a popular cell phone novelist who goes by the name of Yupina. Sadly, with no other human contact than her cousin, Yukina is unable to express more romance in her novels. Kitami Shigure, your so-called "typical bishounen", who is really a womanizer, has fallen into Yukina's trap when she blackmails him, and they end up "love-acting" for the sake of their respective secrets.
Watashi ni xx Shinasai! won the 36th Kodansha Manga award for best children's manga.

I knew it wasn't going to be that great but I read it anyways... AND I WAS RIGHT! =D Nothing spectacular, original, or refreshing... Same typical old trashy fluffy shoujo that makes you want to flip tables... The art is alright too, but still nothing really special about it, typical big eyed characters that you can find anywhere. Read it if you're bored or if you enjoy all that eye burning shoujo stuff.
This was a verrrry interesting read for me. I think it's hilarious how Shigure still does all this stuff for her (b/c he loves her etc.) but it's still funny
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and he's given her quite a couple hickeys too
and question, since this isn't labeled like ecchi or smut what exactly would you categorize all that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
finger touchy in the mouth
just wondering out of curiosity? otherwise this was a guilty pleasure, it certainly kept me waiting for more!
errr, it Ok
......It was ok but...their was a lack of personality and romanceon the female leads side, she was like a rock that sometimes blushed...............the romance was dead, I didn't understand why they liked eachother, or why the got went along with the bitches games, I mean what a unrealistic stupid excuse for a reason ...overall, it was kinda a waste of time, it didn't capture me what so ever, I schemes through some pages in the end cuz it was so crappie...Oh and her bloody cousin was a creepoi..I mean one minute his ok looking then he turns into some timid emoissh freak....

Admittedly, it is exceptionally cliche. It does reuse a lot of shoujo elements, and it's plot devices are definitely ones you've seen many, many times before. But there's just something about it that draws you in for more, and you can't help but continue reading chapter after chapter. It's the typical tsundere hero gets his "true character" uncovered by the heroine, as she then uses it to her advantage. Throw in the childhood friend who loves her, the love rival and the first love - you have a jumbled mess of shoujo-esque plot devices.
But at the same time, it's how the author portrays and expresses that is what counts. The characters themselves are unique in their witty dialogue, reactions and how they tie in with the story. Yukina herself (the female protagonist) is a fresh personality compared to other stories, demonstrating a more manipulative and cunning streak - in comparison to usual ditzy, shoujo heroines.
Every chapter is a new surprise, and you're constantly kept on the edge of your seat wondering what the next mission will be, or what will happen next. The drama is constantly building, and the plot itself is utterly unpredictable at times from where it will lead. The story itself drags on in such a way where it's not quite tedious, but adds the perfect amount of suspense. It has yet to reach that "overly dramatic" level, which is good.
It's been 30 + chapters, and they have yet to even share a kiss, much rather focusing on solving the character's troubles and making their feelings recognised. I feel like this is what truly makes it stand out from other shoujo stories, as it actually gives it's characters substance to work on - to improve - and to change. At the same time, it incorporates all the other factors to keep the audience interested.
All in all, it's a lot better than you'll originally anticipate. Sure, it reuses so many cliches but nothing is ever truly original nowadays. The author has somehow made an incredibly overused plotline into something far more interesting, and I sincerely await the next update.

I completely agree
with Hotcocoa, below me. This series is ridiculous; the plot, the characters, the silly love triangle; but the UST overflows. And you read it. At least until you get bored of the unresolved part, and go away. But before that, you read it. You can't help yourself.
And that's Unresolved Sexual Tension, for the TVTropes uninitiated.
A guilty pleasure read
I'm not very fond of the artwork (i.e. boobsock clothing) but I gave it a try.
Anyway, basically a lot of stoicism from the main lead, Yukina, who shows no other facial expression until she's either being felt up or thinking about being felt up.
The idea of these "missions" are rather ridiculous. Like seriously, the only reason anyone would agree to Yukina's very random and sexual-natured requests is because they want to cop a feel from an easy girl. Or, to be frank like another top comment, a slut. With each mission Yukina and Shigure become more touchy-feely and they're one step closer to kissing but never do. Only character development is that Yukina becomes less paranoid without her glasses and Shigure decides to take advantage of that.
It's an even bigger disappointment to hear that the series has become a love-pentagon. From how it's being dragged out, it would've been much more satisfying if the mangaka had just made this a full-out ecchi instead of a smutty harem shoujo; at least there would've been some sort of action by now!
Basically just popular for the UST. 9/10 chicks will probably eat this crap up.

Read it, it's good
This has to be one of the more interesting/entertaining shoujo manga out there. Full of romance and chemistry, both Yukino and Shigure make quite the couple. Yukino comes off clever and cute most of the time while twisting Shingure around her little finger and keeping him in his place! While her cousin Akira keeps the story interesting, making Shingure go nuts with jealousy. Mizuno who is Shigure's childhood friend, though a love rival, isn't as annoying as some can be. If you are into jealous lovers and making a popular guy come crawling and begging, this is it.

i started reading this under the recommendation of a friend and i loved it. but then it started to get....uninteresting. Basically, i kept on reading just to confirm that Yukina was gonna be with Shigure. I'm glad i actually took the time to read it because, as cliche as the plot is and predictable in the long run, the author does throw out some unexpected things like those missions. I was like " Is she serious??"
Overall, I just hope it doesn't get all typical again and finally end
I really liked it at the beginning. Even if I'm not a big fan of school-life romance manga, I found it pretty interesting. Although the whole cellphone novelist thing didn't make much of sense.
And ok, this one is one of the shoujo that focus on the relationships of the characters rather the story. I didn't mind that either... But now I feel that it is dragging.

It is obvious that she likes Shigure, yet she hesitate. But when they are kissing and such, she does not mind or sometimes she is pushing him away. Why can't she try to think of her feelings? What her heart says? But she runs towards her cousin too. And later we get to see her former crush too, her own teacher.
The situation is rather cliche. Ok, it was entertaining at the beginning but now it became repetitive. I just hope it will end soon.
Lastly, most of the characters are drawn like they are shounen ones. Take for example Yukina... Nothing like the lead of a shoujo.

Half and half
I like the art; it is, after all, one of the best I've ever seen. The plot is well written, detailed carefully. I love how they use blackmailing to pull the two together, especially in the beginning. The mangaka knows when to pull the strings on your heart. It is carefully paced, and it makes people want to read more. But, despite all of this, the characters don't spark interest in me.
The main female lead is supposed to be strong-willed (well, that's what I think she should be, since she sounds like Misaki-chan from Maid-sama), however, she breaks into tears easily then I thought. Maybe it's just me, but I particularly don't like those type of girls who, generally, act strong and icy but break down into tears. I do, however, like how the mangaka added a very strong weakness to her, making her into not one of those unrealistic super tough tsundere girls.
And Shigure? I'm not sure about him. I can't say much, since I only read up to like, chapter nine, but so far I don't have any interest in him whatsoever. Overall, I give this manga rating of 6.5 because, in my opinion, the characters don't seem to pop out and seem to "wow" me. A lot of people might disagree with me, but although the plot seemed quite interesting, I think the characters aren't that good.
