I Am Being Chased by a Perfectionist Man


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

The company’s infamous “Iron Mask of the Sales Department”, a perfectionist man known for his poker face, confessed to Hina Uzuki. He said he liked her but his face somewhat carried a hint of dissatisfaction. When she asked him for the reason, he said, “You are far from the ideal woman I had planned to go out with.”

“But that’s fine. As long as you go out with me, we can gradually transform you into a charming woman. Well? Isn’t it a fantastic offer?”

“I definitely don’t want to go out with a four eyes like you!”

Being chased by an unrelenting perfectionist man, what will happen to Hina?

If I had to sum this up in one phrase, it'd be: A perfect, must-read fluffy romcom.


  • The male lead's witty remarks: The dialogue is absolutely hilarious and perhaps what makes this novel stand out so much from other vanilla romcoms. It'll keep you laughing chapter after chapter, and it's the most enjoyable part of the novel.
  • Pacing: There was solid pacing throughout and never a dull moment.
  • Cliche and predictable: This novel hits on all the cliche romcom tropes. And you know what? That's not a bad thing if you're just looking for something short and sweet. I came for cliche fluffy romcom and that's exactly what I got.
  • Fluffy: The interactions between the male and female lead were very cute and sweet.
  • Superb translation speed + quality.

  • I wish we got an epilogue or an extra at the end. That would have been the cherry on the top.
All in all, I highly recommend this if you are looking for a fluffy romance that will have you laughing.

The MC annoyed me. I don't like the fact that she tell him she doesn't want him to try to change anything about her and then turn around and tell him that he needs to change things about himself. Also she knows that she likes him because if she didn't she would just flat out tell him no but she doesn't want to and it irritates me.

This is a light-hearted romantic comedy novel with a sweet lesson about love. There isn't a huge conflict carrying the story. Instead, what carries the story is the dynamics between the main leads - the stoic and frank Hasegawa and the manly-dressed hardworking Hina.

A must-read for anyone who enjoys a sweeter office romance.

Ngl. The cliches of romance is strong with this one.

Its not bad though. Everything didnt feel forced. The timing for the scenarios, funnily enough, is as I said during I read it "i thought so" moments. That was how predictable most of the scenarios are, yet its not bad. It feels just right, a perfect fit.

Classic romance as it may be, it still tugs to your heart.

If there IS an extra or side story, of anyone in particular in the og side cast, its not a problem. Anyone would be... more>> hooked or curious of it. Mei or Rins, or even what happens after Hide. Thats how grounded the roster is, not one of them ends up feeling too much cartoonish. Granted a bit silly, but they are mixed with normal or real personalities and decisions. <<less

I love reading how the relationship between Hasegawa and Hina grows and gets stronger throughout the novel. They're solid as a couple ~ they weather any misunderstandings or dramas quickly and efficiently due to their love & care for each other. 💖💖

It's a light hearted novel that you can enjoy in one sitting since it's already finished. ? ❤️ Please show some love to the fine translator who did a great job translating this novel. I re-read it twice and still can't get over the male protagonist. Now, I going to try to satify my craving for proactive male leads by reading other works. Hmmmm.... I want more.

Quite a simple love story and not much complications occur. As compare to those previous novel I read, this is consider good to read and more realistic.

I was happy when I saw it completed finally for me to start reading.

This story relies heavily on a comedy of misunderstandings for its friction and humor. That may frustrate some. I enjoyed the experience of being inside our relatively normal MC’s mind as she reacted to the ML’s straightforward and completely abnormal misunderstandings. These two are hilarious and sweet. The later half can feel a bit down as our MC pulls back after she is aware of her own feelings due to fear and more misunderstandings. However, that little bit of depression made the ending all the sweeter.

Note: this may be triggering... more>> to some due to

instances of stalking our MC experiences from a different character than the ML.

I love the story, I suggest that those who want to read this, read this until the end, because no, the FL did not one-sidedly tell the ML to change himself to get her, while on the other hand, she did not want to change herself, it may be like that but trust me, they will voluntarily change themself to be better, the reason being their love for each other, and which sound so wholesome to me.

The ML, is just a blunt straight-forward guy, he clearly shows the cliche cold... more>> and unemotional cliche type, but the way his personality in the story was blended with witty straight-forward remarks, you just can't help to take a step back, breathe, and laugh. Of course, he has his shortcomings, but the way how it is turned in the story, makes you love it.

The FL just got out of a relationship so it's kinda normal for her to take her time. Overall there's fluff, great pacing that makes it a fun read. <<less

I can't say that this is a perfect story but still I love it. Both ML and MC are hilarious. ML, who doesn't know how to love someone properly, got confused because he likes someone (MC) who is far from his ideal woman type. But then he realizes that if you love someone, you'll love all her shortcomings and doesn't mind her for being herself.

MC is a hardworking woman who hate dressing up and cleaning. She's not willing to change herseld for a man and got dumped by her ex... more>> boyfriend because she's not womanly enough. Despite of that, she still couldn't get over him and refuses to open her heart for ML. But after trying to love ML, she learns that she doesn't mind changing herself to be a better person for someone she loves even though he doesn't ask for it (to be fair, he indeed asked for it in the beginning but later he learns that he still loves her even she's just being herself so he doesn't ask for her to change herself again).

I love the messages that the author tried to convey in this story. And ML definitely becomes one of my favorite ML from all the books that I've read so far. <<less

Ooooh, Japanese Romance, how simple and at the same time ridiculously complicated.

It's not bad, but at the same time it's not that great... clichés galore, but still competent enough to hold it's own.

It's well written, the start is a bit rough... as it's supposed to be, the middle is awkward, as it's supposed to be, the ending is pure fluff... as it's supposed to be.

If anything, I think it's not of my favorite stories, but it's well written and competent enough to be entertaining, the humor really is hit or... more>> miss because of the social awkwardness of the ML but it's not "terrible" it's just probably not going to be to the taste of everyone.

If you like socially awkward serious type characters you're gonna love this, I for one don't find them neither good nor bad... so it hit right in the middle of my "whatever" sensor. <<less

I'm pleasantly surprised. I thought this would be cliche and highly predictable, but this turned out to be really fun to read!

The MC and ML have personality, and they way they interact is cute. I thought the ML was kinda smug and rude at first, but the novel really portrays him well. The way you notice small nice things about the ML with the MC, knowing that they're growing closer, is really sweet.

The story was really predictable, but the characters brought enough life to the story. The cliches were done... more>> well. The cute parts and the slightly angsty parts were both nice. <<less

If you are a girl, the begging is hard, and you maybe feel like almost dropping it.

But would be great if you don't. This romcom is great for having laugh, but also give us a subtle message, about respecting our partners into a relationship. It is 25 chapters of a good translation and healthy content, appreciate :)
