Meet Kageno, the super dull, glasses-wearing, short, first-year high school girl. She has no friends and envies people who are enjoying their youth.

Meet Mitsunaga Youta, the most popular handsome guy in school. Girls constantly confess their love to him, but he has no plans of dating anyone. After a string of events, he decides to ask Kageno to be his fake girlfriend for a month in order to stop the girls from confessing to him in exchange for his friendship. How will Kageno face all the ordeals that are about to come?

This is the start of a love comedy between the school idol and the negative girl.

Forget embarrassing--annoying, overly childish, almost akin to fanfiction/wish-fulfillment

Why not just bash your head against a wall instead?
Let me say that I wanted to like this manga. I honestly did. The premise seemed cute, and initially I was like "okay, maybe this will work." But the heroine is incredibly irritating and an idiot. The relationship feels forced and unnatural, and the story has pretty poor development. It feels just like a crappy wish-fulfillment fanfiction, and that's honestly the best way to make sense of most of what happens. Even the humor falls flat, so I wouldn't even classify this as a semi-decent comedy manga. I stuck with it for seventeen chapters, but it never got better, soooo.... yeah. Reading it was a waste of time. I don't recommend reading this. There are hundreds and hundreds of better shoujo and comedies out there.

I've read the raws and the heroine is causing me to cringe so hard...
The manga puts too much emphasis on comedy that some situations are pretty embarrassing..
I don't like the "POOP" chapter... Man, talk about ridiculous..
I've drop the manga after that...
The heroine is too kind that she becomes an idiot....
This is one of the reasons that I've lost interest yet again in the "Shoujo" genre...

Art is cute, the girl's actions, expressions and chibi forms are very endearing and funny at the same time. You definitely had moments of self doubt and isolation like her back in the day and can feel for her. Thankfully, just for the sake of the plot, the mangaka hasn't given her any unreal characteristics, ditto with the prince, both feel quite real.

Direction is going at a fun relaxed pace, I'm interested in seeing more of this crazy gariben loner!
