One day, a girl, like the one you would hear about in a story—Charlotte Bennett came in as a transfer student in Akihito Aoyagi’s class. Witnessing her elegant temperament, and her cute appearance which could captivate anyone, Akihito fell in love with her at first sight. Thinking of her as an existence beyond his reach, he gave up without even approaching her.

However, after unknowingly saving Charlotte’s little sister who had ended up being lost, both the Bennett sisters began coming over to Akihito’s house to spend time with him everyday.

The time they spent together gradually increased, and after being excessively attracted to each other’s charms, they—

A couple of the negative reviews here are... well totally wrong in super weird ways.

I have no idea what they are talking about with the MC suddenly changing or being self-insert tr*sh. Yes, he's disliked in the classroom... but what does that have to do with being infatuated with a pretty girl at first sight? How is that changing? And his behavior all seems pretty consistent with what we're told about his past - willingly being the wet blanket on the rampant escalation of social pressure. We've seen him do... more>> it, and are told that's how he's been. It's all consistent.

Yeah he's also a top student, but it seems his life mostly consists of school, tutoring, and studying. He's obviously being presented as intelligent, but he's not walking around discovering new math every time he gets a little bored. I really wouldn't describe a character in this situation as a Mary Sue. He's a bit mature for his age (highschool) but seems likely to have a past that forced him to mature faster. It hasn't been said yet, but he lives alone (again, in highschool) and doesn't want to talk about it, so... being a bit mature seems fine.

As for the teacher talking so awfully about the MC? I have no idea. The teacher in that scene literally told the FML that she should look for the ML if she has some trouble because he's reliable. The rest of what she said was basically semi-ambiguous advice about how to get along better with him. How is that talking awfully about ML? It's on-point enough that it's obviously not talking about a different novel, but it's so entirely the opposite of what the actual chapter said.

Anyway. So far it seems pretty good for what it is. It's sickeningly sweet. The MC is a bit dense but, again, overly mature over-thinking highschool guy. It's not so bad at this point that it's remotely unreasonable. The teacher feels like she'll probably push things along if she has to. The MC is also going out of his way to avoid the really dumb typical misunderstandings or situations in these sorts of stories. It does a good job of capturing the typical feeling you'd expect for this sort of thing, without just being another retread of the same damn thing again. It's nice and refreshing. I enjoy it quite a bit. <<less

Hello everyone, Translator-san here from Neosekai Translations.

To clear everyone's questions or misconceptions, Gakusei Translations used their raws from Syosetu website while Romcom Translations used their raws from Kakyomu. Kakyomu is the older version of this story, while Syosetu is the re-write one.

We from Neosekai decided to continue the Syosetu raws since it still gets updates from time to time. And from what I've personally seen and others that did decide to read ahead on both raws, Syosetu ver. was the better one than Kakyomu.

Anyways, about the story, it's straightforward, as... more>> the title suggests, the MC saves the transfer student's little sister and what's more is that their apartments are close to one another (kinda like Otonari no Tenshi-sama). They also grew their relationship closer after hanging out quite a lot. Although it has some cliche moments here and there, it was still presented in a cute and fluffy way which is good.

As for the characters, I'm going to say this right now, the MC is very dense. Bear with him considering the timeframe of the story, despite loads of amounts of chapters, the time that has passed isn't quite long actually. Around 50 chapters, only 1 week has passed, so I guess the MC's density could be forgiven in that regard? Idk, depends on your perspective, but I believe it's justifiable. As for FMC, she's very cute. She's like the embodiment of cuteness. She gets jealous, loves to puff a lot, but deep in her heart, she's aware of the feeelings she has for the MC. In other words, she's not a tsundere, she just can't put her feelings into words and is scared of confessing. There are other characters such as the best friend that I could say, is the best wingman or bro one could ever have. Not to mention the little sister of the FMC, others may find her annoying but she's cute for me (not jailbait plz).

Overall, I enjoyed working on this series and will plan to catch up with the raws which is at chapter 102 as of writing this review. I rate it a 5/5 because it's a series I'm working on after all. If I myself, didn't protect its dignity, then who will?

Like I said before, some parts may seem cliche to people but for me, it was done properly and I recommend others to read it. Bear with it at some parts and soon, you'll get a very fluff series.

As for the question that's probably going to be asked by a lot...

Will MC and FMC end up together?


The answer is yes, around chapter 69. Their feelings are confirmed for one another but the MC is yet to make a proper confession which I haven't translated to that part yet as of this writing. Also, MC himself said that he will make an actual proper confession.

First of all, I find the story very fluff and entertaining although there's a bit of a dumb aspects with regards to the characters but I find them funny and cute.

So far, story-wise, it had been consistent with regards to the title so I think that's good.

Lastly, the second TL group that replaced it made me feel like I was reading google translate, good thing another group came up and took over the liberty of re-translating everything. I suggest reading Neosekai's TLs after Gakusei Translations if you're just about to... more>> start with the story. Quality wise, Neosekai is better in that regard.

I was originally planning to give this 4* but to balance it out, I gave a 5* instead since I enjoyed reading it so far anyways. Try giving it a read first, it all comes down to tastes anyway since not everyone can be pleased. :) <<less

All the characters in this story are nothing but tropes; none of them are compelling enough to stand on their own. Heck, you can almost say that it tries to be like a copy of Oregairu rip-off, but the plot progression is bland and too boring to keep your interest going.

We have the stereotypical young teacher, who's hot tempered and complains that no one wants to marry her. Except it turns out she cares for the MC and tries to help in other ways.

We have the stereotypical kouhai character, also... more>> the little sister of the teacher, that also likes the MC, but he's too dense to recognize it.

We have the stereotypical friend character, the more sociable one out of the duo, but the one who makes the most mistakes.

We have the stereotypical transfer student: blond, rich, foreign, and otaku. Everyone in the class, including the MC, falls "in love" with her at first sight.

Finally, we have the main character, who is a mix-match of tropes that the author forces down your throat to make you try and pity him, but ends up just making a totally unrealistic character. The author really wants his MC to be like Hachiman from Snafu. No one really talks to him; he's "scary looking", unapproachable, and as he starts off with the mindset that "it's better for people to hate me so everyone remains happy".

Except it's over issues where it's not even an issue whether or not "people would hate him for".

He goes on a monologue on how it's better for him to be hated so that the transfer student wouldn't be troubled by the class for inviting her to a welcome party. Seriously, why is there such a huge dramatization over this? They even have a valid reason to push the party until later, but nah, the MC has to be "the evil one who takes the blame".

The whole story starts off with the MC finding the transfer student's little sister who got lost trying to find her bigger sister. This is also where the author tries to throw in tasteless anime jokes and continues it far too long: he's immediately called a lolicon when he brings the girl to school to contact her sister. And then it continues throughout the story and people insinuate that he's a pedophile. Seriously, why continue this tasteless joke?

Let's move on, MC meets transfer student, ends up finding that they're neighbors, and now she's interested in him. Now there's the unrealistic situation here: sure, it's not strange if the MC lives alone, but why is the transfer student and her little sister living alone WITHOUT ANYONE TAKING CARE OF THE SISTER WHEN SHE IS AT SCHOOL? The explanation we get is really dumb as we find out later that they also have a

mother, but apparently she's "too busy" and would rather live in a hotel next to her work instead.

What kind of child neglect is this?

Then comes my next complaint: after this introduction, the plot progression moves like a crawl: the majority of chapters (approximately about 40-50 chapters) become something like this: little sister gets attached to MC, MC can't help but spoil her, and the transfer student sulks because she wants him to pay attention to her too.

I can appreciate fluff, but it's just non-stop and doesn't develop the characters or progress the plot at all. You may call it "romantic", but I find nothing romantic when both of them only like each other superficially.

When we finally get some plot development, it reads like a bad neglect fic story. We find out that the MC is

an orphan, but his foster family hates him. He apparently messed something up with his foster older sister, and now he had to "atone" for his sins. This is why he has the whole "it's better for everyone hates me" attitude.

Okay, I can work with that.

Then it becomes even more unbelievable when we find out

he's apparently some sort of soccer prodigy, capable of leading his team to victory against Brazil and Spain... while he's in middle school. But of course, he f*cked up in the past, quit playing soccer, and then you get non-stop nihilism from the MC


And then when you sum it together, this guy is just a walking gary stu power fantasy: he's modest, he's smart (#1 in the school ranking), he's a genius

soccer player

, girls love him because he's nice. At least with Hachiman, he has a realistic background and more flaws than just "oh I f*cked up, so now I must atone" mentality.

Tl;dr: edgy gary-stu, every other characters are just tropes, Oregairu rip-off. <<less

cbrtlsseca's review is completely correct, but I still recommend the story. It's borderline impossible to find a romance WN that doesn't have completely unrealistic elements in it anyway, so the fact that Charlotte is apparently living alone with her sister doesn't really bother me.

Based on experience, this will probably never be fully translated, but I wonder what will happen when it catches up. It seems like the author might have abandoned the original story to re-write it, and the re-write doesn't follow the original chapters 1:1. So at some point... more>> the translators will either have to figure out how to continue the original story through a specific chapter of the re-write or completely re-translate the new story, but we're well over 100 chapters away before that's a problem.

Edit: After reading more chapters, Charlotte does have a mom who lives with her. Also the MC is the standard harem idiot, even though he has a GF for the majority of the WN. His sister is annoying af and he forgives her way too easily. His GF is annoying too, so I'm dropping a couple stars. <<less

Could only make it Ch 22 before giving up due to MC is to inconsistent. What I wanted to find out was if Charlotte and Emma seriously living by themselves? Even though she was shocked that MC was living by himself.

If this is true then the author just pulled the dumbest story out of their rear with no concept of reality.

It is bad enough English parents would send their High School age daughter by her self to live in a foreign country to study abroad. There would be some... more>> sort of foster family or something (not living by themselves), but to have also sent their 4-5 year old daughter along with this to be raised and cared for by only their High School aged daughter.. And on top of that the younger daughter doesn't know the language, and is a Spoiled child who a sister wouldn't be able to control.

As others said before the MC bounces between smart and s*upid so the author can make drama and suspense.


When FML & Sister run into the tutored Aki MC says

"Although the one accompanying me was Aki, I felt that it was bad for Charlotte to see me alone with a girl. However, "

So from this it means he knows that both Aki and Charlotte are thinking of him in that way, however just before he says Charlotted doesn't see him that way, and Aki's blushing is a fever. Author is smart and reads situation and emotions easily, but to build the harem line and drama he is s*upid to emotion and situation.


Still I don't know why the teacher kind of pushed Charlotte to MC but she knows for a fact her younger sister is crushing hard on the MC... <<less

A solid story with a good cast, a kind protagonist, and has a feeling of both reality and unreality to it. It's not perfect, but its a great pallet cleanser and is a good break from all the Iseki out there. The only serious flaw which may detract from your enjoyment is how dense and s*upid the protagonist can be at times, though I think that's actually normal. Smart and talented people aren't smart or talented in every area, they have gaps and flaws. Plus being smart is not an... more>> immutable protection against doing or being s*upid in some way.

Very fluffy and I hope you have your insulin shot at the ready <<less

Hmm.. It is really good fluffy and sweet novel if that's what you are looking for.. But the main character personality is not really consistent.. He basically changed after fell in love at first sight for the FMC.. From the most hated in the classroom (Doesn't really has reasons/Doesnt even know why he did something to makes his classmates hate him) to this current him (Well I have read many novels n I just found it odd while reading it).. I don't really believe in love at the first sight... more>> since it is just only love for their beautiful appearances.. He also the smartest in his class but also s*upid sometimes.. Well maybe bcus I found it odd since I compared it to Oregairu's MC (Yahari Ore no Seishun love comedy wa Machigatteru) n etc.. But well it is not like I expected much for the story anyway.. Good fluff and sugar tho <<less

Overall a fairly fun and lighthearted romcom with a dense protagonist. If I had a complaint about that part, I'd say it's that other heroines than the main one don't seem to have any shot at all (not sure if the teacher counts or if others will be added later, but her little sister does) to the point of making you wonder why they were added (as heroines) to begin with.

The MC is fairly smart, but has a tendency of solving other people's problems and disputes by becoming their common... more>> enemy. Overall he has low self-esteem and there are some signs of depression and self-hatred although they're not explicit and haven't been particularly thematised. There seems to have been some problem with his family that led to him living alone, but there aren't a lot of details up to this point and if there were I wouldn't want to spoil them here.

The main heroine is a beautiful transfer student who seems to have come to Japan with her mother and little sister (not sure if the father was mentioned to also have come at some point) and gradually falls in love with the MC, without him noticing (or rather actively denying the signs in some cases).

While this isn't a masterpiece, it showed some good prospects, but sadly the second translator has terrible formatting that makes it a pain to read and even changes both markup and style with each chapter so that even my usual method of making a script to fix that doesn't work. The translator isn't the reason why I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5, but they are the reason why I'm not reading any further. <<less
