After her parents passed away, Shinobu Indou starts learning as a cadet in a military academy. She arrives to the scene looking pretty ragged and thus gets picked on by one of her senpais, Kagami Fujino. However, as soon as she starts paying more attention to her appearance, Kagami suddenly starts acting very, very different towards her, rather trying to help and get close to Shinobu, instead of picking fights.
This one caught me by surprise. You could say the gorgeous art caught my attention, and the story kept me there. Well, the story and Kagami. Their chemistry is rather odd at first, but during the few instances in which Kagami lets her true feelings slip, you just can’t help but fall in love with them. I can’t wait to see how this continues~
For as long as she’s known, Miwa’s been into women – and now she’s at university, it might finally be time for her to come out of her straight-passing shell. Of course, that takes a lot of confidence, and coming out is never easy – but could Saeko, her trashy popular weirdo of a friend, give her the help she needs – or just maybe, could the two of them be more alike than Miwa realises…?!
Follow the little awkward story of Miwa and Saeko, as they become friends and then kind of casually decide to start dating. Nothing really works out how it should in the very beginning, but the journey to get to that nice and loving relationship they both want, is both interesting and cute. An easy recommendation~
All the girls love Touma and Touma loves all the girls. Each and every chapter she picks one of her many admirers and shows them a good time, by doing their hair, as well as doing other things…
Has Amano Shuninta every really failed us? No! So, of course, this one is an unsurprisingly nice read, even if it’s pretty short (so far). We follow the story of player Touma on her journey to make every girl in the school cute, and as simple as this sounds, it’s still both interesting and fun, especially since each and every chapter features a different girl. Let’s see if Touma will settle with one of them in the end~
Fujishiro Nanaki, beautiful and attractive, is a popular girl at school. Her classmate is the plain-looking Kurokawa Kanade.
For Fujishiro Nanaki, who always wants to be cuter than anyone, Kurokawa Kanade’s existence is nothing but an eyesore to her. One day, Fujishiro discovered that her boyfriend has been cheating on her…
This one feels a lot like Girl Friends at times, but it adds some more drama early on, as well as a more complex kind of love story. I’m actually not even sure if we can call this a love story yet, seeing that the two of them started out as bully and victim and now just became friends for some questionable reasons. Seeing how Nanaki gradually starts liking Kanade more, it’s definitely moving into the right direction.
Tanaka Iori is a worker for a company that sets unreasonable demands, on top of that she has a penchant for dating married men. What a recipe for disaster! One day she gets drunk with an acquaintance and wakes up the next morning by her side naked! What’s Iori to do?
This is a rather fast-paced story that may put the main focus on the relationship between the two girls but has a lot to tell aside from this, too. I think its main charm is the fact that the story “runs” along at this fast pace, as well as the fact that, for once, we’re dealing with adults and not high school students. I still can’t believe how few bigger stories like that are around, compared to the high school counterpart. Anyway, be prepared to face some chapters that depict abuse. If you’re not ready for this, better pick something else.
Since the death of Akari’s mother, her father has started to center his life more and more around his work, to the point where he often doesn’t even come home for days. Leaving for a business trip, he asks one of his colleagues, Touko to live with Akari and keep her company while he’s gone. Unfortunately for Akari however, the one taking care of the other is not Touko. Instead she ends up being an irresponsible person at home, unable to do any house-work, being bad at cooking and a drunkard for the most part. Weirdly though, Akari is not that annoyed by it all…
Let’s be honest here, it’s a pretty absurd story if you think about it, but no matter how absurd it might be, I can’t help but be in love with it. Now add the fact that this is an age gap in which one part of the pair is still under age, and you can find quite a few reasons why you should not pick this one up. But trust me, you might regret it. The story pulled me in pretty quickly, and I guess no matter how drunk and useless around the house Touko might be, I just love her. I might have a problem, I guess I have to admit that… 😛
