The Neighboring Aarya-san who Sometimes Acts Affectionate and Murmuring in Russian

Description

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

“И на меня тоже обрати внимание”

“Eh, what?”

“Nothing much though? I just said ‘This guy is such an idiot’”

“Can you stop hurling abuse in Russian!?”

The unrivaled silvered-haired beauty sitting next to me, Alya-san, had a triumphant smile. …..But, the truth is different. Earlier, in Russian she said “give me your attention, too”!

Actually, I, Kuze Masachika, have Russian listening skills at native level.

I couldn’t stop smirking at the not-knowing Alya-san who, today too, was coming all sweet in sugary Russian language!?

An adolescent love comedy with a super high-spec Russian JK, the object of admiration of all students!

Beautiful. Just beautiful. The plot, the wholesomeness, the translator, everything. The prologue alone shows how good the series can be. The MC doesn't look wimpy, and it's definitely worth reading if you enjoyed any of the novels in the Recommendations section.

Also, real great work by the translator. Criticism is essential, but I don't agree with how the person in the comment section (v1 prologue) chose to do so. Constructive criticism is always better over blindly stating that the TL sucks solely based on the fact that it's an MTL. The... more>> entire volume only took 3 weeks to translate + edit, and it doesn't look like copy-paste MTL. That's very respectable imo. <<less

So far, I'm really excited for this novel's future. It had me hooked form beginning to end, with a concept that I had seen before, but was not executed as amazingly as this one.

  • the other novel being "I’m The Only Multilingual Master a Russian Transfer Girl Student Who Can’t Speak Japanese Can Rely On"
In any case, the way this novel was written and translated really helped me enjoy it.

The fluff on this novel was insane, I can't thank the author and translator enough for bringing this diamond in the... more>> rough to my computer. It gave off the best sugar vibes possible, and was paced in such a way that wasn't too fast, but allowed the reader to continue progressing through the plot without feeling boredom. The foreshadowing as well, if you can pick up on it, makes it easy for the reader to have fun trying to speculate what might happen next, A shocking feeling for an romcom, but unlike the others, I can't get a general idea at all where it will take me. Such a novel is much more fresh and exciting than simpler novels that try to push an unreasonable love comedy where the FL has no proper reason to love the protagonist. And additionally, I can't stress this enough, but THE PROTAGONIST IS ACTUALLY INTERESTING, NOT A GENERIC LONER OTAKU. He has some undiscovered secrets that are hinted at, but we get a good viewpoint at why he acts the way he does.

5/5 as of Volume 1, don't fail me now author and translator! Keep up the good work! <<less

This novel totally has potential!

It's not your average self-deprecating MC with soo low self esteem, because the MC has atleast the skills to back it up.

Although the romance is still building up, we are given a decent introduction to the main characters. I believe in the coming volumes, the sweetness of this novel will just go up and man, oh man, am I dying to wait for the newer chapters

I cannot be the only one that's 99.9% sure that Kuze's First Love is Alya's big sis right...?

my reasonings :
1. No one would really use a pendant as a memento for a bf/gf these days.. EXCEPT if they haven't met for a long time (make sense right since you can't use it as a phone wallpaper)
2. She snaps a pic of Kuze's hugging (carrying) a plushie (which would make number 1 make sense)
3. She said (written by author) Kuze's name with Hiragana (which what would anyone younger than 7/8 years old in Japan generally use)
4. Masaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaachika -> Sa-kun?
5. She spoke Russian at him, this pretty much nailed it tho

with her and potentially Suou joining the fray, this can be a harem romcom rather than normal romcom

unless I was completely delusional, I am quite sure I am correct

Solid romcom, pretty cute. The translation is pretty bad but it's better than nothing so I won't complain too much.

The fluff and the flirt makes my heart go nuts. This is one of the best rom coms out there in my opinion.

this is absolutely one of the best romcoms I've read. It follows the established mold of the Japanese romcom formula, but it doesn't have the usual forced drama and sappy gimmicks to show its appeal. Yes, this novel is nothing extraordinary or genre-defining, it is, for the most part, a by-the-numbers novel, however, the chemistry between the leads is still compelling enough to push the story forward on its own. By that, I mean that the story has both wholesomeness and drama but without any of them being annoying.

I don't usually read romance or romcom novels as I can't quite relate to them, especially when the novel tries to emulate modern society's high school or college students. I'll admit that I'm chronically plagued with poor social skills and it should come as no surprise that I have a grand total of zero romantic experience. The aforementioned farther delineates me from the story and hampers my ability to truly enjoy the highs and lows of each chapter.

However...

This novel is written in a way where I can appreciate the characters... more>> and more importantly, enjoy the story. While it may seem like I'm contradicting my original statement, I really feel the interactions between the ML and FL along with any supporting roles are organic. Romance, like many other literary genres are written in exaggeration; meaning mundane moments are portrayed to be flashier than they really are. However the author strikes a balance between writing moments with seemingly no importance to the bigger picture and moments where every little twitch of a muscle, every dialogue just ends in the hands of our lord and savior, diabeetus.

Genuine recommendation for folks who want something to read and are thinking of giving this a shot. <<less

predictable.

it's 3.5 rounded up to 4.0 I guess.

volume 1 is for building the relationship and setting for future plot (drama), and if you're an avid reader or at least has an experience with this type of story you can guess what the drama is and how the story will progress,

it's all predictable, wish they just cut the unnecessary drama and just focus to tell fluffy and cute story.

her russian gimmick doesn't even matter at all in the story. <<less

It's a light-drama slow romance novel. At the end of Volume 1, there was some sweet romance and nice interactions, however since it's only the 1st volume, it's spend a lot of time setting up future plotlines. It's a good thing but if you are familiar with the genre, you can already tell how the novel will progress.

Still the translation / writing is really good, so it's worth a read.
