Licensed: Kodansha (2 Volumes: Digital) – (Complete)
Genre: Comedy/Slice of Life
Age Group: Teen
A high school girl who lives alone in her parents’ home, away from her sister and mother who are working as actresses in Tokyo. Under such circumstances, my family’s birthday, for a long time, somehow, popular actor Shiraki Araki appears instead of the family! Araki rushed to the confused Yakko, saying, “He became a star to help him find her.” “Keep me”…?! A gift (?!) that arrived at JK who was worried that there was nothing for me. It’s the start of a half-lived love comedy with a superstar!
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: I’m impressed with how cute this series is I’m just disappointed it’s so short!
The art is actually very unique. In some parts it’s gorgeous and others it seems a bit rushed. I find the heroine to be quite bland, and I get that it’s a plot point, but her sister isn’t that dazzling either. Otherwise, the male lead looks amazing and I love all the poses he does!
This series is actually a very cute take on the low self esteem girl with the persistent and loving male lead. While the heroine starts off super annoying and plain it’s fun to watch her grow more confidant over the first volume.
It’s also refreshing to read a series where the male lead is loving and supportive to the heroine. I really loved reading this just wish it was longer!
Final Rating: 4/5
