From Yen Press:

The boy of her a girl's manga artist?!

To the eyes of high school student Chiyo Sakura, classmate Umetarou Nozaki--brawny of build and brusque of tongue--is a dreamboat! When Chiyo finally works up the courage to tell Nozaki how she feels about him, she knows rejection is on the table...but getting recruited as a manga-ka's assistant?! Never in a million years!

But for someone who makes a living drawing sweet girly romances, Nozaki-kun is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to matters of the heart in reality. And so Chiyo's daily life of manga making and heartache begins!

Nominated for the 8th Manga Taisho Award.

A wacky, lovable, parody of shoujo comedy

I don't like many 4koma, or at least I don't like them for long, but Nozaki-kun is a rare exception. Do you like to ship characters? This series encourages that, and is funny all the while. The anime series was amazing, but the manga is definitely good too. I reviewed the manga at length, but simply put: lots of fun and endearing characters, lots of laughs, tanuki.

I've never read any manga in 4-koma format until this one. It felt odd at first but I got used to it fast. It's a very funny series to read. I didn't think it was great immediately but it got a lot better after a few chapters. I love how random and unique the characters are. Also since I've never read any other manga about working as a mangaka, I find this serious is very interesting and informative.

I watched the anime first, and I really enjoyed it, but when I found out it was adapted from a manga, I had to read it!! I LOVE IT!!! This is probably my first ever manga that I genuinely enjoy from beginning to present. The characters all have a unique charm to them and there are parts when they break society's norms! Sakura is just the cutest thing and Yuu Kashima is so gorgeous. Definitely give this a try if you're into comedy with a touch of romance on the side.....eventually.

4-koma unlike any other. It uses larger panels than typical 4-komas which allows for better art. The comedy is unique in the sense that it doesn't rely on repetition or perverted jokes, instead using genuine humour with some truly likable characters.

I first saw the promo for the anime and avoided this series b/c it sounded like a RomCom. But, thanks to random tumblr photoset posts, I got interested in one of the characters (the "Prince"), and decided to try the anime out. Great choice. I couldn't stop laughing at so many parts.

The manga is just as good (though the translations in earlier chapters are a bit off?). Most of the characters are refreshing and likable. The series does not have a reverse harem. In fact, what little romance there is in the series has almost zero development. The whole series is lighthearted and hilarious. Usually, I would be bored by the 4 koma style, jokes, and the lack of plot volumes later, but surprisingly, I managed to catch up on the latest chapter.

Tsubaki Izumi is one of my favorite mangaka EVER. I love how her works are still funny despite there are no dirty jokes, annoying characters, or cliche plotline. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun really had me there. The characters are so adorable and very likable, and every relationship that exists there is interesting. I recommend everyone to take time and read this, because this manga is really worth it!

EVERY chapter. Seriously, everything in this 4-koma is filled with ridiculousness, as expected from the mangaka of Oresama Teacher. Since comedy is my favorite genre, I give it a very high rating -- it's rare I actually laugh out loud from reading a manga! And I did that on many occasions; it's just that funny.

Art is good, characters are pleasing. However, like Oresama Teacher, there's almost no development in the romance. So if you're looking for that, this probably isn't the best. However, if you like good art and comedy, give this a go!

I've learned to not expect too much from a 4-koma series, so this was a good surprise for me. Good art, solid characters, and great gags - very good when you need something to laugh at.

The creator of Oresama Teacher produces hilarity even though here she is constrained to the 4-koma style. Whenever someone criticises 4-koma manga for being consistently dull, I direct them to this series first of all.

It has the same kind of random, hilarious humour as Oresama Teacher. I love it. The characters are also loveable smile

Very enjoyable read, can't wait to see what happens to the characters next!
