Ogata Aoi is in her 2nd year of middle school and is the president of the student council. The middle school she attends is one of the best in the country and is called "AAA". Aoi goes there to meet her first love, but after a surprising meeting, she's finding out that her first love is a gang leader in the neighbor school, called "CCC" (lowest level). Maybe it's only a coincidence that that gang leader and her first love have the same name since they look completely different from each other, but now, Aoi wants to find more about this person....

My Thoughts


Review covers 15 chapters 

Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! It’s been a long time since I had a really sweet and hilarious romance covered on the blog. I may be lying about romance, as I’ve been mostly covering that on my blog. But it was quite a long time since I enjoyed the romantic comedy so much. I read the manga in June and wrote a review also in June, but I totally forgot about I, and well, here it is now. I re-read it a bit so I could rewrite some parts of the review.

First of all, I never really paid attention to the “You May Also Like” widget on Goodreads. So, if you are like that too, I highly recommend you to check it sometimes. I mean I found this awesome story because I looked at that widget and to say the truth I found many more interesting mangas there. I’ll cover them sometime soon. Okay, let me get back to the story. There are only 15 chapters, but the story is fully developed ad you feel completed when you finish reading it. Even when I finish a completed manga I always have this feeling of seeing something more, but not this time. Somehow, even though I didn’t really want to say goodbye to the characters that grew on to me, the goodbye was quite okay. Everything came to some kind of conclusion and I was very content with all answers.

The story has lots of fun moments, but at the same time there were many things that made you think. The stereotypes of good schools and bad schools were what the author focused on. I believe she wanted to show us, that we should never put everyone under one umbrella. Sometimes, even delinquents can be good. Both Aoi and Hayato are amazing characters. There is a lot of character development in the 15 chapters and not only for one character but for both. Though it is more Aoi that changes. But if you do think about, it was more about Aoi than Hayato. I do believe there was not much of Hayato’s development. He was an awesome male character from the very beginning. The way he had fun on Aoi, and the way he concealed his true feelings from her, were adorable. I really loved when they finally admitted their feelings and Aoi finally became a girlfriend, not a lackey.

I hope you’ll find same time to read this great story. You’ll love it a lot, well I did. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favorite book or manga! Happy reading!

XOXO
