I know that there are some reviews on here championing this... novel, and that they say not to listen to those with low reviews. It's not bad, I guess, if you're into ... more>>

stereotypical shoujo manga where the couple is lovey dovey together forever happily ever after, but the problem is that it does basically follow that plot. The humor was terrible, the conflict was expected (read enough shoujo in this lifetime that there was nothing out of expectations), the biggest plot twist was that the girlfriend actually shaped up after dumping the MC somehow without maturing at all (she became a caricature of what I'm guessing the author thought should be "best girl" after getting back together with the MC, beautiful and dotingly clingy, with no layers beyond some jealousy and wanting to be spoiled)

, I died of second hand embarrassment and revived to create a reading list called "garbage" just so I'd never make the mistake of wasting my fading eyesight on this again. Normally, I let it go and just move on because there's better things to do in life than obsess over horrible things but this is beyond the standard level of bad.

Read to the end to see if it could redeem itself. It does not. The plot is about as vapid as it's main couple, and it pains me that I know people in real life who are like this and that I've had relationships like this. If your relationship is as flimsy and 2D as this, please, consider if it is possibly borderline emotionally abusive or codependent. It's not cute, and you're headed for disaster.

If you break up, stay broken up, don't go "but I love him/her", you will get over it in time. Spare yourself the emotional exhaustion, please. The characters are in high school, so it's still excusable, but if you're older than them and think this is #goals, please don't date someone who fits this story, you won't learn anything from it besides how to waste your energy making yourself more exhausted. Or die! That female lead is definitely a yandere, and while that lends an interesting twist, it didn't amount to much. Do you actually want anyone to die? No, but if this story turned to her life after trying to make a move on someone else's in the name of jealousy, it would have been more interesting.

I just binge read the chapters in the last... half hour of avoiding writing a paper, and I gotta say: the low reviews are right, the main female is a little grating (she's so... eager to please), there's the thrill of a different perspective and a female lead who is super into her role (#iwontbea3rdratevillainess!!1!) but that doesn't cover up for the fact that there is little character development and it's a bit forced. Still, it grows on you, and if you can ignore the need for editing are looking... more>> for a quick, mindless read to enjoy, look no further! The FL is no stressed out and plotting Eliza (Noble Girl Villainess is a slower, but more engaging read for sure) but her antics are funny and engaging enough for a quick read. MC is OP as well, but eh, it suits the quick story. <<less

It's adorable af! A shame really that at the time of this review, the chapters past chapter 5 appear to have been removed : (I'll keep searching to see if I can find more, but for now I suppose this is all I'm getting :' (
