3.5 solely for the little extra story added on at the end. With Hiroki. (*˙︶˙*)☆*°

Rena, the protagonist, still jumps to all sorts of conclusions for the worst because of her lack of relationship experience. It makes the story way too rushed and the little relationship she has seem so faulty. Tomoya on one hand likes her a bit too much and too soon while shes all questions. (・_・)

It's cute but still as rushed as it was when I first read it. Lol but all is forgiven because it's not for a younger au...more

Since Fall In Love Like a Comic was only two volumes long I decided that I review them together instead of individually. Fall In Love Like a Comic was so good that it has now become one of my favorites.

What made it such a great read for me was that everything was tied up so neatly at the end with absolutely nothing left unfinished.

As I read more manga books I find that I am drawn more to the lighter shojo-ish ones...like Fall In Love Like a Comic. This manga was funny and even kind of sweet, esp...more

Much like taking a dose of ipecac, sometimes you just have to let the torture run its complete course to get it out of your system. The bonus story in this was its only redeeming quality. No, not the pre-wedding wedding (which had me actually gagging, sure it should have been sweet, but all I saw was bad luck and velveta cheese), but the family scene. It was adorable, and he grew into his face. haha!

Okay, maybe the real reason for me ripping into this series so hard was that I found it unrealist...more
Ugh. I only read this second one because there were only two in the series and it wasn't worth fighting my OCD over. It was just as bad as the first. Difficult to read, with an impossibly saccharine sweet and rushed storyline. I love Shojo as much as the next person, but I couldn't suspend my disbelief and found it difficult to even get into the "plot", for lack of a better word. The panels were jumbled and sometimes difficult to read and/or follow. (Although, I must admit that it might be the f...more
i LOVE this comic very much... never got bored to read it again ^0^

This is a review for the overall series...

The series was entertaining while it lasted and a good time waster. Though, the concept was done before which made me hope it had something in it to make it stand out. The characters were average and the setting was too. Nothing really special. So therefore, I give it three stars.

That's all...
Anyone notice that the following story characters looks somewhat as Card-captor Sakura characters? Especially the protagonist! Anyways, this deserves a solid 2 rating. It matured (somewhat) giving it a bit more depth. Predictable? Yes. But I think it was just written for fun. I liked the ending though. It satisfied me compared to the recent mangas I've read.
i love this book

I really enjoyed this series. The way the main girl melts still makes me laugh. I did enjoy how the last chapters covers how they are doing when they are older. This was a fun read and it is only 2 volumes a recommend reading it if you want to laugh.

You would think that after loving the first one so much, I'd feel at least close to the same about the second. I just couldn't get past the ending. I guess it's cultural, but it just didn't make a lick of sense and I didn't care for the guy's behavior.

The author clearly aims for the readers to feel the love and cuteness of this manga but sadly, I did not feel it. Right, it is cute but I never did sense romance at all. No love chillin' and all. I am not benumb by any means, and I am sure about that.

This is such a cute series ^^ It is pretty anticlimactic since it's a short romance with no struggle, but it's adorable to blow off fangirl steam if someone just wants to squeal and giggle a little. Sigh.

This is the continuing tale of Rena and Tomoya's relationship.

It has a wonderful bonus story that gives it great closure.

If you like sweet and very mild sensual romance, this manga is for you.
Soooooooooooooo, cute. I love it. I wish i owned the fist one, but I don't. I've read it though. Nice when you need a pic me up.
Chitose yagami,, Suka karya-karyanya,,

Tokoh ceweknya 'meleleh' terpesona sama si Cowok Perfect, Lucu banget,, suka!
I liked the premise of the first one better, this one was mostly an extended "happily ever after", but it was nice.
