Ok just to start this out.... dont be fooled by the art, even tho its a little weird, u wont question it at all after a while. The art is umm special but the hilarious/romantic storyline makes up for it and more. the lead male (Hoshino) is the most straightforward guy u will ever find in the world. saying blunt stuff like "wanna have sex?"right in front of a crowd smile this manga will make u laugh a lot u MUST read it.

If you can get by the artwork, there's a lot of good to be found here

I'm just going to say it up front - I really hated the artwork in this one. I don't know if it's the author's particular style, or if they chose to do it this way on purpose, but in either case it's really not very good. In fact, when I first started reading this I questioned whether I would be able to get through it simply because of my distaste of the artwork. And, unlike other art styles that start off terrible, but improve as the manga goes on (think of the the difference between the first chapters of Ah! My Goddess as compared to the more recent ones, for example), this one stays consistently bad throughout the course of the story.

But you know, with all that said, by the time I was halfway through the first volume I really didn't even notice anymore. It's just a great, great story with interesting characters and a fantastic "hook" that sets it apart from the majority of other romantic comedies I've read. True, there are other stories where the main character is honest to a fault, gullible, etc., but they're usually done in a "fish out of water" type scenario, where the person has been living outside of normal society for whatever reason. This is the first manga I've read that doesn't use that approach, and it works remarkably well.

So, an interesting story, great humor, lovable characters, and a genuinely touching romance override whatever faults there may be with the artwork. If you're a fan of the genre, give it a shot - I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Completely hilarious and heart-warming to boot. The characters are unique and lovable, from the first to the last of them, and the humor is always enjoyable and oftentimes unexpected when, as it's been pointed out, it deconstructs what you've come to expect from a romantic comedy.
This series needs to be read by anyone who wants to laugh; yet I have a feeling that this is one of those series that stay with you for a long time after you finished them, and might put a smile in your face just by remembering them. I know I'll remember Negishi and Hoshino warmly, and will come back to them again, one day.

Well what can be said about this manga is that it is very heart warming and light hearted read. No twists and turns, and no dramatic complications. Just a story about how to people fall in love and how their relationship develops throughout their 3 years of high school. The story starts out with alot of humour in the first volumes but then focuses more on the development of the main characters relationship. The one different aspect (don't want to say bad) is the art that requires some getting used to. If you are looking for a fun love story to pass the time and don't mind the unusual art then Love Roma is the manga for you. I give this a 7 rating just because in all fairness the plot leaves much to be desired and o course the art.

This main male protagonist is the most honest, blunt, and gullible guy I've ever read about in a manga. Who knew you could actually make a relationship so hilarious(and it's really hilarious). Just as the synopsis says it's awesome!
