My Thoughts


Review covers 15 chapters 


Hello everyone! Welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today I’ll be covering one of the most recent works by Chiba Kozue. It is a really sweet love story that makes your heart pound like crazy, and that’s only with 15 chapters. This manga is an amazing love story that every girl wishes to have. I really loved the very first page of the manga, if made me grin like an idiot. And then grin again, because I had this feeling that I will love it until the last page. And no, I’m not telling you what is on the opening page, however, I will give you the 4th or 5th page, which made me laugh so much I couldn’t stop.



Now, let’s get back to the story, our heroine is a high school freshman – Sasa Yamamoto, a really nice girl, who applied to the particular school because of her senior, whom she has fllen I love and been having a crash on for nearly 3 years. Now let me introduce Sasa’s crush – Maki Kaneda, older by a year, is a very nice, handsome and kind person (that’s what Sasa thinks him be). But well, we’re in a manga, so definitely her expectations of him are crashed to zillion pieces when she walks on him having sex with definitely not his girlfriend. What will Sasa do now? Will she unravel the secret behind Maki’s behaviour and is it possible that those two will end up together?

Well, sorry to spoil it but they will (it’s in the end of the very first chapter) and from that on will start an amazing of love between Sasa and Maki. It was amazing how their relationship progressed, all the ups and downs. There will be rivals and their relationship will have to face a lot of difficulties, so will they be able to live through it and stay together? Read the story and find out yourself.

As always the drawing style is amazing, and characters never disappoint. I loved both of them. I can’t even say who I loved more Sasa or Maki. Sasa is a really great character, she is really storing and at the same time very fragile. Her and Maki’s banter is amazing, especially in the very beginning. This moment was just superb:



Maki’s idea of relationship cracked me up, and Sasa’s expression and comeback was really amazing.

I hope you do find some time to read this amazingly cute love story. There are only 4 chapters on Mangafox completely translated, but you can read it on raffmanga.ch it will take a bit more time, due to pressing more buttons, however, it will be still worth reading. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews and promos on Katie’s Corner. Happy reading!

XOXO
