Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: This series is wild. While it won’t be winning any prizes I am obsessed and cannot look away even though it’s only been three chapters. It’s like a car crash.
The art is actually really nice and seems pretty unique to the mangaka. I love the way the heroine is drawn but the male lead… is very plain and looks absolutely terrifying most of the time. Which works for the series.
I’m not a yandere fan by any means but a Josei series is a Josei series. The male lead is certifiably insane. Absolutely bonkers. The whole thing works because the heroine has a pretty decent head on her shoulders and is always trying to make the best of a bad situation.
Again it’s only been three chapters but it’s been a wild ride and I can’t wait to read more! Only read if your ok with a psychopath male lead who LOOKS like a psychopath.
Final Rating: 3/5
