Date This Super Cute Me! (LN)


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

A confession from the popular girl in the class, Yuzu. It was actually ‘Please pretend to be my lover to solve the triangle relationship in the ‘Riaju’* cliques’! In the class, Yuzu always pretends to be a good girl, but only in front of me, she behaves like a full-blown narcissist which I should’ve found annoying, but……

*リア充’Riaju’ is a term sometimes translated as ‘normies’ but it is actually a term used to refer to ‘people who enjoy life by having proper love life’ usually used by those who are not able to have one in real life.

Honestly, I really do like this. It's cute, funny and the chemistry is great.

My one and only flaw??? After the first volume, they don't date. They know each other's feelings and don't even hide it... yet they don't date.

It's like the author is desperate to just stick with the situation for no reason. After the first volume, there was no reason to not date for real and it'd keep most of the story 99% the same... so it's just annoying.

Almost all of the shorts would work even if they were... more>> dating with almost no difference minus some minor lines done for no reason other than to show that they still aren't dating....

What is with this weird aversion so many authors have to just making their leads date???

But that one little flaw is what drops the series from a 5 star to a 4 star.... <<less

This was so good I was forced to write my first review.

Regarding the main story, FMC's character is fleshed out pretty well, regarding her motives when she asked MC out and how that would affect her friends. The MC is proactive when he needs to be, and the FMC is very likable, her narcissism plays into some of the comedic parts. Their banter is really great, most of them funny, but some turn really sweet. I am relieved to find out ... more>>

that the MC doesn't have a traumatic past that caused him to shy away from social interactions, that he was actually a riajuu at first, but then chose to enjoy life by himself with his games. I'm a bit iffy about FMC's confession (kinda) not being given a clear answer by MC at end of v1,

but I think this will still be a great read going into the the next volumes since their dynamic is very nice

Regarding the side story, among the sugary romance that light/web novels here can offer, this is one of the best to get diabetes, make you go kyaa kyaa as you roll around your bed while reading, and cause you to wish that normies go explode. Seriously, how can they say they're fake lovers while doing all that stuff, what a dumb couple

5/5 would recommend <<less

I don't really get how people are capable of rating a story that has almost no chapters. Unless, it is the case that they have read it in its original language which I doubt.

So far the side stories were funny plus entertaining and the first chapter seems promising. Gotta note that this is a romance novel and therefore while the side stories seem to exist parallel to the main story, they do hint at the relationship between the ML and FL that's bound to happen later in the story.

I'm gonna... more>> keep reading mainly cause it seems interesting and piqued my curiosity. Maybe as we go deeper into the story I'll consider updating the review but for now don't worry about it and give it a try. Maybe it is to your liking or maybe it is not, who knows. <<less

Pretty interesting premise that leaves a lot of room for development later. Main girl's absolutely full of herself, but she flaunts it around so blatantly to the point that it becomes entertaining in its own ridiculous way. At the very least, it doesn't seem like I'll be getting bored with this story anytime soon.

Definitely worth the read, characters actually feel alive and funny. MC is not the cringy beta loner that can't interact with others or something, considerate, honest, and also knows boundaries. FMC is smart, considerate, compromising and reasonable, and also narcisstic, but it's mostly for comedic purposes and funny banter between the two. While I haven't read much of the LN story (because I can't find any MTL of it, if anyone knows do tell the site). The side stories from this story are so wholesome that you'll 100% get diabetes... more>> and ship them to death (I've read the raws of ss from kakuyomu. Com). Sorry if the reviw is not too convincing for y'all. It's my first time writing a review and probably didn't do well enough in conveying it XD. <<less

Undoubtedly, one of my most fav romcom LN yet. No annoying factors from sub characters. Not overuse cliche stuffs finding elsewhere. Good big points to entertain until the end.

I would say this could give some Oregairu vibe but in a bit more fast paced and seductive.

Can't wait for Vol.2!

This was absolutely pleasant to read, I had a lot of fun reading both the main story line as well as the ss stories. If you are looking for fluffy and diabetes, read the ss, you would be amazed.

The main story contains some nice plot developments, drama. It really comes a long way to show just how different this MC is from your typical dense MC from other Novels which I find to be very interesting. The dynamic between the main couple changes overtime as they soften up to each... more>> other and the climax of volume 1 was so satisfying to read as it shows all characters in the story are not just their for show, they are there for proper development.

Overall, the story is not cringy, the main couple is adorable, and characters are actually relatable to real life. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a fluffy rom com but with good plot development.

Last but not least, thank you to Chocolala and Seiryuu for translating the first volume, I am really looking forward to the second volume which I've heard to be as good as the first one.

ps: if you guys want volume 2 to be out asap, support the translators, donate them through Ko-fi so they can continue! <<less

The pace is moderate and honestly pretty nice. Author doesn't overdo female lead's narcisim and the MC isn't a complete wimp. There's also signs of development, I love it.

the side stories are also wholesome but contain the same bickering, I hope to see this novel fully translated!

You know, judging by the synopsis, this looks like it's generic and is the type of story that would get stale after a while after they've moved on from the initial concept of the novel. But it's surprisingly a nice romcom.
... more>>

I also like how they handled the "break up" by continuing the relationship because people would get suspicious of how quickly it lasted, but you know these dorks enjoy each other's company and would just like the relationship last longer. Oh how I adore this ship

Looking at the premise, it looks like a story about a pretty girl full of herself or a spineless loser, but no, they proved me wrong lmao. It's a pretty chill SoL. Good on the author for not introducing Diney-level type of antagonists to disrupt this cozy and warm romcom

It's weird to say, but this narcissistic cutie and a self aware loner bounce off each other well. They have great chemistry and developments feel natural. <<less

I'm really recommend this reading to you guys. First of all, because of the excellent main male MC. Although he is revealed in full his glory only by the fourth chapter. Someone says that the ending is a bit disappointing. But for me, this is just the first steps for becoming a real couple for those two.
PS Hope this novel will become even more popular.

Although the expectation of the continuation wears me out, because guys decided to translate all the side stories before starting the volume two translation. After... more>> all, there are as many as 45 ss (including three extras)... <<less

While the scenario of having fake relationship is by no mean original, this story executes it very well and it was a very enjoyable read. The story is solid, the author does not make use of cliches and I particularly like the fact that details not related to the main story are only mentioned in passing.

Yuzu (FMC) asks Yamato (MC) to be her pretend boyfriend in order to achieve a certain purpose. What I like is that Yuzu isn't just using Yamato. She has prepared a befitting reward for him... more>> to do the job and makes a real effort to befriend him and get to know him better as a part of this fake relationship and makes it a worthwhile experience for him too. Her narcissistic comments are basically just friendly banter and she isn't acting high and mighty at all.

Yamato isn't your average cringy loner who doesn't know how to interact with people either. While he's certainly a loner, he knows how to read the mood and play along with Yuzu's jokes.

I really like the chemistry between the two and look forward to future developments.

Note: The main LN focuses more on school life drama rather than the sweetness between the two. There are scenes where you'll scream "cute!" but it won't give you diabetes.

Update: Finished volume 2. It is just as great as the first volume. <<less

I like this novel so far, the main characters' flirting (without realizing that they are flirting) kind of reminds me of Ending Maker. They have to "pretend" to date each other and end up getting closer in the process.

The 1st volume was awesome. One of the best I have read and I have read a fair share of light novels. While it may seem to copy the pretend lovers trope this is a lot better than other novels of the same trope and the ending of the 1st volume was mind blowing.

LOving the dynamic between the main characters. The MC is not some shy/pathetic guy but actually has a personality that might attract the FMC later on. The story is quite typical however, their relationship and the way picker at each other keeps it fun and refreshing

Out of all the novels I have read, this is by far my most favourite romcom, the plot is played out very well and the characters feel fleshed out.


The end of Vol. 1 was pretty disappointing, but I still have faith that this will become an excellent novel

I like this novel quite a lot, the characters are fleshed out and the romcom is genuinely amusing. The MC was quite realistic compared to most loner MC's - he's a good middle ground between enjoying personal time and basic human contact, and he doesn't show any unnatural macho moments throughout the novel. He stands up if he needs to, but generally just doesn't meddle. The FL is also quite a nice character, and although the author tried to put in some Hikigaya-like discussion in places the cringe factor outside... more>> of those few conversations is pretty low.

Overall, I highly recommend this work as a casual rom-com. I wish it had a continuation, really, but I suppose 27 side stories kinda wears out my motivation to keep reading. <<less

The character interactions are cute and the fake dating scenario is played well. However, ... more>>

by the end of the first volume, the protagonist is aware that Yuzu wanted to actually date him but never responded to her confession for some reason, even after the fact. There's no reason they shouldn't be actually dating at the end of the first volume except for the romance progression to get dragged out unnecessarily. So while the first volume was good, the ending was a bit disappointing and I'm expecting that it's not going to go anywhere anytime soon
