I was actually thinking something more like Jun Fukuyama or Daiki Yamashita, but maybe I'm exaggerating and it is as you are saying.

Pfft Yamashita Daiki... That killed me

Probs she's got a rusty voice like someone who has permanent sore throat plus an already boyish voice..... or just imagine her with an Arnold Schwarzenegger / Silvester Stallone voice LOL

I agree. But I also think her voice isn't just boyish. If not, then I don't get why she is so mindful on that.

The teenage boys of Japan must have universally shit taste if no one can appreciate a girl with a boyish voice. That kind of trait is god-tier!

 or maybe he has to crack them eggs to see their real faces? 

Now I can only imagine him going around headbutting people to try and figure out who they are

I'm liking it... Though what's wrong with that basic bitch... BASIC.BITCH----?!?!!?! What's wrong with her "under-the-lines" harassment that wasn't totally under the lines?

 

I bet she's like "I have totally lack of confidence of how I used to be and now I'm a bombastic sexy beauty who owns the world and well... I'm also an alpha bitch who harasses the "ugly-weird-talking" girl just to make me feel superior to a slight version of who I was"

 

or some shit like that LOL

 

sorry the small ranthis comment but yeah in the first time there's this non-hateable heroine so I've gotta root for her and this seemingly complex-yet-simple MC

You should watch Anomalisa.

Spoiler

This looks interesting, following.

Oh God, why did I have to find this manga with only 1 episode? 

There was this game, where mc had seen everybody as jelly-like monsters. Except the real monster, which looked for him like human girl(all other people would go mad by seeing it). 

Saya no Uta? Interesting comparison, although disgusting xD

Don't worry guys, all the questions will be answered in the following chapters. I personally don't think he has prosopagnosia, the doctor was the one who said that. If you look carefully at the end of Ch.1, the person he saw around the corner had an egg-like face but after they bumped he was able to see her real face, why? I still don't know. But It could be something psychological? or maybe he has to crack them eggs to see their real faces? We'll see. (this isn't a spoiler, it's my own opinion in the matter.)

Oh, perhaps you meant the theme with how he can recognize only the girl?

I have mild face-blindness, but I can always remember my wife's face and recognize her in a crowd.

It sounds a bit like "One-week Friends", in which a girl forgets all of the people she encounters at school every weekend. I'll have to read this.

but... that's not even how face blindness works... oh well.

Then how it actually works? Kinda curious since you mentioned it and from wiki it's more or less the quite the same, though I do take the 'egg face' visualization more of metaphore and to ease readers to get into the theme. Oh, perhaps you meant the theme with how he can recognize only the girl?

EDIT: nevermind, I've read Solistia's post on thread above. It's possible but indeed the girl only part is rather fantasy to fit in romance I bet...

but... that's not even how face blindness works... oh well.

I will have to see how this progresses, since the 50 kids thing is a strange element to introduce that makes me wonder if this might introduce more of a mystery element later on rather than focusing on how the protagonists deal with their issues. (I kinda understand what they were going for with the 50 kids thing, but the number seems so exaggerated that it feels a bit jarring when compared to the rest of ch.1.) 

LOLWHUT mmm...~?

It's interesting though, so followed mmm...

Interesting 

 

Following

"I want to draw a high school romance but can't be arsed to draw everyone's faces"

Its definitely different. Interesting enough to keep reading :)

This seems the kind of manga that Nozaki would draw

 

Anyway, the premise is interesting. Thanks for translating this :)

That Tanuki-yaro!!
