My Seatmate Tries to Make Me Fall in Love with Her by Teasing Me Repeatedly, but Somehow She Was the One Who Fell


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

By some unsavory stroke of luck, Yuuki Narito found himself sitting next to none other than the mischievous Yui Takatsuki. This girl had built herself a reputation of stringing guys along only to reject them when they finally dared to confess their feelings for her. This, in turn, earned her a certain nickname: “The Seatmate Killer.”

It was only a matter of time before Yuuki fell victim to the overly friendly Yui, but little did she know that he was as clueless as they come! The tables have suddenly been turned, and the hunter will soon become the prey.

“Damn it! You think that poker face of yours is gonna get to me?! I’ll make you regret this, you’ll see!”

This rom-com is off to a bumpy start as a now-determined Yui takes it upon herself to get her revenge!

It's promising as a romcom story.


    • Cute interaction between a calm MC and a girl who seems to be acting friendly for unknown motivation. I like how he doesn't react flustered like the average Japanese MC, just keeping his distance.

    • Not enough context, but that's just the beginning of the story.
    • The translation is riddled with untranslated Japanese, and it's very annoying and cringy in an otherwise ok translation.

This is not Mango approved, and unfortunately so.

This series seems to be a missmatch of so many common troupes in JP novels. You have the misunderstandings and the imoutos with brocon tendencies due to their past mental health issues. You have got dense male leads with a kuudere disposition. You have got friends who don't quite seem to have a proper character.

But does it mean that this is bad? Not really. From a misunderstanding and confused start, it then transitions into a proper teenage romance story and unfortunately, this development... more>> is somewhat unique. Why unfortunately? Because it had so much potential!! It simply turns into a slice of life still moe machine gun. This novel is strictly ok. Nothing more, and nothing less. <<less

While I am about to criticize this story, please understand that I do like this story. It has good humor and character dynamic and it can be very cute. However...

I'm going to be devil's advocate here and say that I don't like the misunderstandings the ML has about the FL. Mind, I tend to not like stories who depend on misunderstandings for their plot, and this one is sadly guilty of this. The ML has allowed his entire perception of the FL to be influenced simply by the words of... more>> his.. friend? I guess? Without stopping to think for a moment, "Hey, maybe she's just being friendly and you guys were jumping to conclusions about her intentions?" Especially with that one instance where he accused her of playing a game to try to make him fall for her and she, surprisingly courageously for her, said that she wasn't playing a game... Heavily implying without actually saying that she was trying to get him to fall for her. And his semi-delusional misunderstandings seem to only be getting worse.

Honestly, while I do like this story, if it continues the way it's going without some romantic progress, I'll likely have to drop it. This new jealous female character feels like another way to stretch out the ML's misunderstandings, so I'm pretty meh about her. <<less

Somewhat fun romcom, though it feels like a lot of the jokes are lost in the translation. Overall the translation quality is fairly good, but when characters have a comedy skit like back and forth, it just doesn't seem as funny as it probably should be.

What was slightly disappointing to me was that it turns out that the whole "Seatmate Killer" thing was a misunderstanding in the first place. So while there are still cute interactions with the girl who tries to tease the MC into confessing while falling in... more>> love with him, there's a difference between an innocent girl harbouring innocent feelings and someone who habitually and intentionally leads on guys in order to humiliate them. Simply put, there's much less gap moe than expected.

Characters are varied and more or less realistic (show age-appropriate s*upidity and lack of experience) and aren't too extreme and the plot is rather slow and relaxed. It's nothing phenomenal but overall it's still a good read. <<less

Honestly I dont like the heroine nor her personality and how she doesnt clear anything up with the MC. Now that I'm caught up again after taking a long break on this novel I feel like I could go without reading it. Theres a romance and heartwarming tag but nothings really heartwarming and there is barely any romance since it's mostly one sided. The second volume there is a new character introduced and shes much better than the current FL and I want to cheer for her now rather than... more>> the original lead. The comedy and references are honestly why I'm still looking forward to new chapters. I dont really expect anything at this point and I hope anyone reading this doesnt expect any romance at this point in time (ie. Ch55) hopefully something happens that's actually significant during this second volume

the only significant thing so far was just the ending of volume one which also annoyed me since it made things even worse with more misunderstandings and the little sister clinging to the FL instead of the brother which makes no sense since she literally f*cking did nothing.

The story seems interesting. ML and his misunderstandings about the FL is interesting. And FL who couldn't get a grip on the ML due to his high defence generated from taking care of his sister is funny to read.

This is great. The MC keeps misunderstanding the FL and I love their interactions. Their dialogue bounce off each other very well and I enjoy myself a lot. MC's nonchalant attitude towards FL is great too. This is a fun read, nothing too revolutionary or out of this world but it is fun.

This is a standard rom-com with nothing special in it. At this point I expect nothing new in this genre. It is not like Eromanga-level masterpieces can be produced often.

The quality is pretty good, can be read for fun. 5 stars.
