This is a great book. As soon as I was done, I turned it over and read it again. I'm engrossed by the romance/duel between the female and male protagonists. And it is funny!
This manga is drawn in shoujo style with the expressive eyes. The pages are done in mostly close-ups, where the main characters, Ema and Shigure, are talking or thinking. This gives the story a very intimate feel. The set-up is unusual, as Ema (female) gets the upper hand in the relationship from the start. Its great the way she tells Shigure, "Hold me!" and he has no choice but to oblige.
The romance starts when Ema, a cell phone novelist who uses her classmates for material, discovers her own weakness as a writer. She's never been in love! She isn't looking for love, just the experience of being close to someone. Shigure is a playboy caught red-handed by Ema for playing with the hearts of girls in their class. This inexcusable crime may not be exposed! So Shigure does Ema's bidding. But can two be be so close to one another and really not fall in love? In life and in manga, the answer is surely no. We'll see in the next volume. Will Shigure get the upper hand? If he does, what will he demand from Ema?
Besides the drama, there are lots of silly situations and gags. This book is kind of like Kamisama Kiss but less innocent. Not as adult as Blackbird (which isn't funny either). Although it is shoujo, anyone who liked Love Hina will get a kick out of it, though there is little fan service.
