Type: Manga (Japanese)
Status: Complete
Description: Karin Sakuma is a 16-year-old girl whose idealized standards for the perfect guy have left her without ever having a boyfriend. This importance on how something looks even extends to things she buys, often without practicality in mind.

One day, Karin's mom sets her up on a blind date with Takuma Morino, a guy who satisfies all of her requirements, but she later discovers that he is also overweight. Although Karin doesn't initially recognize him, she and Takuma had once played together as kids, during which time Takuma developed feelings for Karin and asked her to marry him, to which she nonchalantly agreed. Although he asks her to marry him again, she turns him down, but Karin later tells Takuma that she wants to spend more time with him to see what will come of it.

My thoughts on how to explain the last few pages...

Spoiler


Anyway, lovely manga! ♥

Just at ch.2 and one thing I just can't let slide.  In class he reads out a passage in English about the wonders of the oatmeal-raisin cookie like it's the greatest cookie on earth.  Oh, please!  Could we get real?  What, they never heard of chocolate chips in Japan?

So.... If she has sex with him, does he turn into a fetus?

HOW?????

So if a kiss on the lips made him

how is she

Also excited for the taiyouXten BL manga
Awww. How cute. So he lived up to her sex drive after all.

That was a fun read, thanks for the scans.

 

What may be more shocking is the final page advert...those are names I haven't seen in a while.

That's was hilarious the guys in class demanding the girlfriend to give them back their teddy bear.

wish i could lose weight like that..............................


I'd never be able to get thin.
Ohhh they're talking about full dozer for last series, aren't they? If inou hadn't pointed it out, I wouldn't have noticed how similar the climaxes are

*reading 8 first chapters*

yup..., this should have supernatural tag...

 

I can't help but agree with you, so I added one.

is this the last volume?

 

Yes. Chapter 24 is the last chapter.

That alternative "translation" (and I use that word loosely) is completely inaccurate.

So I don't think you should put too much faith in whoever translated it the way you said.

 

 

Thanks for the explanation! Pretty much everything else in the two translations was the same, and the online translators I tried made gobble-dee-gook out of what Inoue said. Your help is very much appreciated!

On another note, there was one thing I was curious about regarding the translation of chapter 17, if anyone who has read the source material might be able to shed light on...

After reading chapters 16 and 17, not only might I start believing in Holy Miracles, I feel as if I owe Karin an apology...

I must admit that Karin gained a lot of points in her favor with me in these chapters. She still has quite a ways to go to become an ideal girlfriend, but being with Takuma for several months now, she certainly has changed for the better. Gosh, I almost feel like cheering her on!
 

Not saying this in a taunting way, but you might have watched to many american sitcoms/romcoms...

 

Haha! Funny that you say that but, even though I live in the U.S.A., American TV is not my thing. The last sitcom that I regularly watched was Seinfeld, which ended in 1998, so it must be a result of reading all that manga... Otherwise, I don't really disagree all that much with either your or rozzak's comments.

So two very important things happened in chapter 15...

You may wonder why I'm still reading this since I don't seem to have anything good to say about Karin, but you probably already know the answer. You'd be hard-pressed to find a nicer, sweeter, more adorable, and particularly more sincere boyfriend in any of the manga out there, so it's hard not to want to follow along to see if he finds happiness in the end.

Karen is a scumbag. Yes, it's true. But the great thing about this manga (and the author in general) is the self-awareness and transparency. Honestly speaking, she behaves just about like any other shoujo heroine; pathologically lying, being a sucker for literally any ikeman (having her feelings swayed easily by anyone with a pretty face). However, in most cases, the author will try to play it off as "not her fault", that she's just naive and innocent. But here we have Karin, a heroine universally acknowledged not to deserve her perfect boyfriend by everyone from the author, to her friends, to herself.

It's satisfying market trends by providing a self-insert girl with a perfect boyfriend, while satirically poking fun at how self-serving and trashy their very existence is.

Sure she might not be the ideal shoujo protagonist, but she is at least as honest as she can without trying to hurt others.

And lets face it, there ain't that many shoujo girls that go after the ugly guys proudly (Know a few but they were mixed with some science fiction or fantasy.)

Omg.. The male lead is adorbs.... Like a cuter version of snorlax...

This series is so wild, i love it. Especially the subtle ref to usolily! I don't care about the girl but takuma is the literal best.

Karin is certainly one of the most shallow, self-centered, inconsiderate and thoughtless shoujo protagonists that I've seen in a while. I find it very hard to feel the minutest amount of sympathy for her even after 13 chapters. My biggest beef is her continued comparisons of her boyfriend to "hot" guys, even his own brother, which demonstrate just how superficial her "love" is. Since Takuma can't satisfy her hunger for "hot" guys, she should stop stringing him along, break up with him, and go find some scumbag "hot" guy that will satiate her cravings. Takuma definitely deserves better.

i think that cover doesn't do it justice somehow

it got me curious enough to try reading, though =D
