Summary: Although Koharu is a little taller than the average person, she’s a 15-year-old girl who lives a much simpler life than the average person. Having no experience with love, she thought she’d spend her days peacefully with her group of ordinary friends. However, a destined encounter will change Koharu…!!
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 2/5
Opinion: Graphics are fairly standard. I like her style in hair and clothes but everything else is kind of playing. Especially the guys.
The first two volumes are very hard to get through to be honest. Just kind of boring. The main character isn’t very interesting other than her appearance. Even four volumes in now I’m not really sure what her at large goals or dreams are… other than to date the guy. Very hollow.
The other thing that REALLY bothered me to the point of stopping was how absolutely viciously mean her friends are. And it’s always played off as “oh it’s cause they love her!” but it was too much. This poor girl is just abused by everyone for comedic relief and it’s not funny.
I don’t think I will continue to read this after the review…
Final Rating: 2/5
