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

During middle school, Seko Rento fell in love with his classmate Yosaki Misa, who had once saved him.

Rento, who went to the same high school as Misa, repeatedly made bold advances toward Misa, but all of them were unsuccessful.

However, Rento never give up.

Such days continued for about a year.

Today, as usual, Rento confesses his love to Misa, and Misa’s best friend, Hinata Haru, always gets in the way of Rento to protect Misa.

Yet, the three of them often chatted normally, and they also often went home together.

On the way home, Rento sits on a bench in a nearby park after parting ways with the other two at a crossroads.

After a short while, Haru who was supposed to have left arrives.

“Well then, let’s go to my house again today.”

This is the story of the three of them.

This story made me realize I’m a messy bit*h that likes melodrama.

So the basic story is the world’s most obtuse hormonal teen manages to get an obsessed f*ck buddy who is best friends with his crush without realizing her obvious crush on him. Predictably he manages to put the moves on his crush and the story descends towards grade A melodrama as the two cat fight over stock Japanese protagonist A.

On a technical level the story isn’t great. The love interests are kinda one note and the story repeating the... more>> same events over and over from slightly different POVs is kinda repetitive. Like the POV characters experience the EXACT same events and basically everything they feel could be inferred the first time around. It’s basically dollar store White Album 2.

But I f*cking love White Album 2 so I’m cool with that. What I like about this story is that it’s not afraid to be messy about its Drama and the feelings of its characters are actually pretty evocatively described. You actually get a very strong sense of the depth of emotions and turbulence the characters feel and the story isn’t afraid to damage relationships.

It’s good fun for messy b*tches like myself and made me realize that I’d probably get an embarrassing amount of enjoyment from Soap Operas and The Bachelor if I ever watched them. So thanks for unlocking a new hobby 🙏. <<less

Not gonna lie, this story is like reading something before an avalanche, you know it's gonna come crashing down at some point and it's horrible but you can't help but look at it.

In all seriousness, I think this has potential and the chapters so far interests me, this is not fluffy, I will warn you, but there's definitely some sweetness to be found, it's not gut wrenching but nor is it wholesome.

Ngnl, if you are looking for a fluffy romcom or school life harem, this is not for you, although it’s pretty obvious by the title of the story.
The story itself is not that special, but it is thrilling and after reading countless brain dead romcoms and harems, a thrilling story like this is a rare find.
I would definitely recommend, and to give you an idea, the story is very similar to “I’m fine with being the second girlfriend” although not exactly the same, this story would be a... more>> fast and skipped version of the latter. It misses some core aspect of second girlfriend, but let’s be honest, it’s the second or third best thing you can find that is similar, so I can’t complain.

Overall, 5/5. Story not that special but still good and has a lot of potencial. Just hope that TL doesn’t drop this because the quality is alright. <<less
