Great Romcom, Abrupt Ending  
by LazyReviewer
December 8th, 2022, 10:46am
Rating: 9.0  / 10.0
This story is an excellent example of how to do romantic comedy right. Unfortunately, the ending left a lot to be desired.

To be clear, I'm super happy they didn't go to the bedroom. I didn't want this to end there. But the kiss scene felt like one of the worst panels in the manga for reasons that are hard to describe. The art style was... too much? Lineart wasn't as clean. I probably also would have liked to see a second, less spontaneous kiss happen after the first one.

I also would have liked a few more pages on their life once dating began. Just to give the reader the feel that things actually were different.

But, the second biggest reason this ending felt abrupt was the failure to follow up on the other cast members. Especially Misuzu and Tatsumi. Not necessarily them ending up together, but they are characters I wanted to find out what the general direction each of their love lives may have gone.

Honestly, if the author decided to change up the genre to properly follow Tatsumi and/or Misuzu in a different manga, that would be awesome. Or, if keeping the same genre, Tatsumi's little sister. After finding Jun taken, her own story could start as she looks for her perfect man while hijinks ensue. Then we might see Tatsumi and Misuzu develop in the background while getting a whole new story with a different comedy pivot.

But until then, this story is what it is and I enjoyed the ride a lot.

It got way too corny. I dropped it some chapters before the end and checked out the remaining chapters recently.

The start is nice, but it's stretched out way too much.

Tomo-chan Is a Girl! | Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! Review. Romance about a muscular boy and an even muscular woman.  
by Shellshock

Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
Tomo-chan starts off with a confession.... that our dense MMC doesn't understand. The main heroine is an incredibly tomboyish girl as such she's always been treated like a boy (honestly its almost 50/50 her fault) by her best friend and her Crush. Jun is character made of steel and is incredibly, unnecessarily chiseled. Along side with the help of her 2 other friends can Tomo find a way to make Jun see her as a woman and hopefully make him fall in love with her.

First thing you'll notice is its large ass amount of chapters. Relax its a short and sweet series. Its a daily manga with 1 page representing each chapter. Similar to Mousou telepathy. The series is 8 volumes long. Its also much shorter than your average read being only 140 pages but at the same time being a faster read than your average 4koma manga.

Now lets talk characters. They are spanktastic. I really enjoyed the chemistry between. They are likable with their more than friends and less than lovers like relationship (Jun and Tomo). Tomo-chan's difference between her feminine side and her boyish is done incredibly well. Its this contrast and the reactions about the people around her that makes this series so interesting and hilarious. The side characters are pretty funny too. Especially the=side-main duo gundou and Carol. They are just a joy to watch especially due to there conflicting personalities. The author is so good at making contradictions and contrasts absolutely hilarious. I laughed quite a lot in this manga. More so than i thought i would. The romance is also surprisingly good. Not just when it happens. But there is constant tension and chemistry from the start. So watching it all unfold is always fun.

The problem with this series is the serious side. I just could not take any of the *serious* moments seriously. Maybe they weren't supposed to be taken seriously but they weren't funny either so moments like those always feel wasted. They were some that were below average... those were better ones of the lot. Remember when i said the romance is always fun? I lied. The romance takes hits here and there. More specifically the Firework festival. Its kind of annoying that the author decided to pull this kind of nonsense. He pulls it again but though not forgivable its still pretty damn funny.

TLDR: This is a nice quick read. Though there are quite a few issues and 1 big issue. I think considering the fact that i liked the series enough to actually remember the names of the 4 main characters i guess i'll let this series barely get away with a 7/10. Also the ending is fine if you binge it.

Horrible Conclusion

Rating: N/A
The ride was enjoyable. The wrap up was terrible. Considering the nature of the series being a 4-koma and the premise of the story, the result is a disappointment and waste of time committing to the series.

You can probably binge this very quickly, so it won't be too bad to read in one sitting. Not the destination but the journey, if you like that in your romcoms.

The actual story is completely translated, only the epilogue is left so if you're the type to wait for a manga to be finished to read it, then read this.

I liked it, it's extremely funny at times and the story is solid. It's easy and quick to get through so worth trying out if you're not sure. You definitely won't waste your time.

A very light "read"  
by DrManga
September 2nd, 2018, 5:57am
Rating: 8.0  / 10.0
This is a 4-Koma, which is the perfect format for this light and funny story. The characters are all loveable and the story line is entertaining. The reason for the high score is because it delivers what it sets out to do in less than 30 seconds per release.

It is fun. If you expect depth and a roller coaster of emotions, then do not bother reading 4-koma formats.

As of date (chapter 841), the story seems to be on its final stretch and currently the author is on a (long) break. I would recommend for those who want to read it to wait a few more months as it may end by then.
