For stupid people.

This manga is for stupid people. I can't believe people love this.

So we have a totally useless girl who is also a Mary Sue and she is surrounded by guys who want to rape her. Story? There is no story. It's just a bunch of random events where the protagonist Hiyo is doing stupid things and she is chased by guys or her fiance is seducing her.

Now, the setting is also lame. And it's not that I mind the school-setting. Hiyo attends to a school where everyone is a monster, but they look human with an animal mixed. Later, the author is adding vampires, deities, demons and seriously, wtf. She is trying to make things more melodramatic by,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Making Kurou getting seduced by another woman and then it is revealed that he is the bad guy. And so Hiyo had to fight him in a style a.ka Sailor Moon.

Also I couldn't see romance. Ok, her fiance was telling her some sweet words but still, it wasn't something deep. Most of the time their relationship was comical and he was just there to save her from the 'bad guys'.
And some notice about smut; I didn't saw any smut. There were only a slight ecchi scenes on the beginning but later there wasn't any smut. I was expecting a Midnight Secretary, Akuma na Eros smut scenes.

The characters are barely developed and most of them are boring. Even the male lead do not convince me, I found him pretty boring. And Hiyo is just freaking dumb.

I have also a big complaint about the artwork. It is supposed to be a soft smut title, yet the artwork do not match much. It's an artwork that fits more for a magical girl manga or just a light shoujo.

I picked this only because it was labeled as smut and second because I heard it was good like Midnight Secretary and it was nothing like that.

I dunno why people think this manga is terrible, i think it's cute and yea yea its got smuttish stuff from the bathroom to random guys groping her, but hey, one of the genres is smut and atleast it isn't so over-excessive in sexual intercourses like Renai-Shijou-Shugi (now theres something that u can bad-mouth).
I really thought that the romance was adorable and look, some girls (most girls) fantasise about being liked by many bishies, what the hell is wrong with that? I think Love Monster relates very much to what most girls desire to get from hwat guys and for the girls out there, dont try to deny that you have never once thought some random guy or someone you know of but never met in person was hwat (just like the random students at the skwl). When they go to China, i liked how Kurou wasn't allowed to be with Osora although obviousli he wanted to be. This just showed the stronger love that they share and how they feel lost without each other.
Look, those complaining it is too smuttish, think about it. They only ever "do it" in the final chapter and it never even shows you how they do it or show some pervy scene: It's Kurou's castle with Ahhhh and Osora out of it, ok?
She does act helpless but can't you expect that from the girl who thought she was the only human in that monster school and even though she's the White Crow, she doesn't know how to use her powers properly and so BACK OFF. You shudn't expect some girl who only just figured out she was a monster and in a weeks or months declare that she will protect the world from the evil, although she does save the world in the end.
It's a cute manga and i think it's something suited to read during the holidays or when you're at home alot.

This manga is tacky and fan-service-y towards epic proportions. I thought it to be rather gross and perverted. This whole manga is one huge excuse. The excuse is to draw men in wings and wolfish looking guys that seem to all magically fall in love with a stupid main character and use this premise to draw perverted scenes. I can't believe this was labeled as comedy even - this isn't humor, it's just plain stupid.

I read this manga a year ago, and it was..........................................................................
Not 100% let's just say heh....
It was pretty stupid, she's getting raped all the time then becomes best buddies with the guys 'violating' her, and her fiance is a mega perv, and she was STUPID. STUPID
I hate main leading females that always get sexually abused, and way to vulnerable, weak and dumb as a door nail.
This manga is okay if you have NOT read the more amazing mangas 10x better than this, or if you like watching this kinda stuff...
I guess since I've been more into reading NON immature manga, I just can't stand this as much as I did a year ago.
Srsly, I consider moving on to a diff manga....bleck.

One word to describe this manga? BAD.
Okay, first, the main character is just plain stupid, weak, troublesome, and one of the most cliche shoujo heroines I have ever read about. It's repetitive, boring, cliche, and enough of the "SAVE MEEEEEEE!!!~~~~", just how helpless can you get? -_-;;
I don't recommend it.

When I first read this manga, I thought it was so awesome. However, now that I reread it, the flow of the manga is too choppy. Even though the plot and art is good, the story doesn't really flow. I think that when I first read this I got to distracted by the art and immediately thought, "Wow, this is a really good manga." However, now I just think, "Sure the art is good, but the storyline doesn't really flow really well. I'm really not sure if I should continue this manga.

Forget what I said. This story is just plain horrible! After rereading it, I have concluded that this is the most unrealistic (not the setting cause that's suppose to be unrealistic) and strangest (not in a good way) manga EVER! The girl is liked by so many different guys its hard to keep count! She is "coincidentally" the mythical White Crow. Her fiancee is an all powerful demon who gets beaten up. She gets almost raped in almost every FREAKEN chapter, AND that's not all, the ENDING JUST PLAIN SUCKED!! I cannot even stress the fact that this manga was horrible, but I will say this, the art has not disappointed me. Sorry to all the people who like the manga, but I just don't like Love Monster. Period.

I wish there was a "light smut" genre. It was pretty pg13. For the major smut lovers out there. It gets you with a sorta good smit scene in the beginning then they don't really show much of it at all for the rest of the manga. That's how they suck you in. At times I started getting annoyed of the story. But then I realized I just really was annoyed of the main character. It's ok to have a naive character but a stupid one is annoying to read. Art was beautiful. Sometimes wish the guys hairs were better drawn out.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
again I'm not happy with the fact of having a good smut scene and then getting no build up for more through the rest of the manga. It's deceiving. A girl gets invited to this school and since she is a failure at school she didn't get to go anywhere else that was good. She shortly gets told she is someone's fiancé then soon after "the smut scene" happens.. The rest of the manga consists of them getting into more and more trouble with other monsters because she is too stupid to recognize her feelings and kurou's feelings. Snd the fact that guys could keep doing things to her with no consequence from kurou is bullshit. She's pretty much allowed to lead him on. Hurt his feeling and cheat whenever she fealt like it! (Which turned him into the demon king to begin with). All she had to do was stop slutting herself around. Very simple ending. She just says I love you so much stop! And then it's a happy ending?! Wish there was more to story about the adults/ parents past.

Cringe worthy plot, some hot scenes

plot - 1
art - 3
romance/sex - 5
character development - 1

After reading all the great reviews surrounding this manga, I picked it up and found it somewhat bland. This manga is targeted toward younger middle school level students reading their first smut. There were some nice heavy sex scenes and the male lead was pretty sexy/handsome, but the plot developments were so sudden/unrealistic I ended up skipping quite a bit. The main female lead is very annoying - probably the weakest lead I've ever seen (and usually a weak lead is not that big of a deal). She just acts like a baby, has no thoughts of her own, wears a puffy dress, and makes you dumbfounded that the male lead can actually love her. The series isn't horrible, but I got bored and dropped it in the middle.

I was kinda upset with the quick rushed way it ended there was no build up to the final scene it just took 3 chapters to make a whole new story line for the ending which I didn't like.I mean when I first saw it I looved it and it had great potential but it just got ruined along the line with the stupid story nd it became very predictable nd so unbelievably unrealistic I mean yh I know it was fantasy nd all but it was just common sense nd I found the main female lead hiyo to be a complete pathetic idiot that had this big title but litually did nothing but relie on her boyfriend nd defend the guys that tried to rape her I mean WTF (nd yh its not smutty at all for all u perverts) I read the comments here before hand but still went ahead and read it nd at first I thought "wait wat r they talking about " but u soon realise wat it written is true. I still don't regret watching it but let's just say in the next few hours this manga will be put into my crap book and never to be remembered. Overall I say dnt get excited with the intro it will only lead to u saying "what did I read" but if Ur desperate nd out of manga go for it but still it will be the same result either way.
