Description: Shinjou Shouryuu is a healthy 17 year old high school boy. Many of his kouhai wonder why such a great guy doesn't have a girlfriend. Ask him and he'll tell you that between school, work, and saving his kouhais from bullies doesn't leave him much time to go on dates. So he instead goes online to "F.I.L. GATES". There in the chat room his alter-ego, Kakeru, is infatuated with the girl called Hal. Hal sends a message reminding him that Sunday will be the 6 month anniversary of when they first met (online) and that she wants to meet him in person! And let's just say it's not your typical first date.

This manga is about the romance and complexities of an internet relationship.

This entire thing could have been cut in half if the characters actually bothered to talk things out and explain the misunderstandings whenever something happened.

That was fun ahah

Pretty interesting, ah well it is what it is right? :D The way he broke up with her was well dumb. However he was right, that corp was shady and they weren't legit. Added to the fact they didn't even recruit them properly so as a guy I can completely understand why Kakeru told them to fuck off. Of course a gf deciding to join the same people that fucked  with me wouldn't be taken well. Heck their break up was because of the company people themselves.  So really that corp is at fault so I can see why he hated it even more.


Though I will say that it seem to be getting better no doubt they will  rediscover love again later on.

OK I'm not finished with the story but just going by how things end up by volume 3 I had to ask this.


Is it just me or is there some kind of inequity in the way that Kakeru gets treated...?  Hear me out.  




Sorry for whining, it's just that nobody deserves to get their lives run through a blender and then have it laughed off.  Even if the guy himself doesn't have the priorities necessary to take it seriously.  I guess if he had his priorities right as a person, things would have worked out differently both for his school life, and his relationship situation.  But then, I think he could have had his priorities right and STILL helped out Myuu as a friend.

*starts crying* I remember when i first started reading this in One Manga (RIP) and finished it here in Batoto, this was worth the wait. Thank you Kuudere-scans for the translation

Guess that's it....*Clicks Unfollow* sniff....

I hope this gets an anime adaptation in the future.

I highly doubt that, this manga came out 2005 and ended 2010 so there is little to no chance of that ever happening. Just dashing your hopes before they get any bigger

Is it weird that I'm actually a little more interested in the one shot than in the main series?  


It's still a pretty deflating ending.  I was hoping for a little more resolution in Kakeru's quest to rekindle his romance.  


Damn, that wasn't much of a resolution. Oh well, that's life for you :P

And another one ends *sigh*, the list of series who's updates I look forward to has dwindled so much in the past 4 months alone.

oh, the end. sad. could've been better with a real haruka x kakeru ending.

Was alright, 6/10


Short as fuck though


I hope this gets an anime adaptation in the future.

Hm, the oneshot wouldve made an interesting story too... But no Hal or Kakeru :(

That was one of the worst cliffhangers ever. wtf.

Very much enjoyed this manga. It was an interesting concept that ended up being done pretty solidly.

Thank you Kuudere for picking this up and finishing!

Ty so much for scanlating this series Kuudere scans ♥
When i saw the ending page i had that stupid grin on my face when you see something cute xD

for real?


Look on mangaupdates. Mel kano is only 5 volumes long.

Short chapter...I too feel like I've been trolled...I must burn some other site too then

I feel trolled too, due to the lack of dericious Haruka-san in the chapter.


Maybe if we troll hard enough, Haruka will come after us too...wait, that's a good thing, isn't it? I'm a genius.


To the MLP forums I go, with a torch in one hand, a pitchfork in the other, and a pony carcass in my mouth.

Dunno why but it seems this going to end soon. Before end it plz have a chapter where Kakeru and Haruka become a couple again or have marriage. :<
