I've been reading this manga online, and I'm proud to say that this is a four-star read!
The series is about a secretive girl named Yukina Himuro who writes a cell phone novel as Yupina in secret. But as well as her novel is rated, she isn't capable of writing a love novel because she knows nothing about love.
She runs into a confession between a girl and her popular classmate, Kitami Shigure. After Shigure rejects the girl's confession, he drops his student notebook behind as he saunters away. Yu

This is absurd, over-the-top shoujo melodrama at it's most delicious. Yukina seems to be a loser girl with only one friend, but she's secretly the best-selling cell-phone novelist Yupina, and all her stories are based upon her observations of her classmates. But one day when she overhears some people complaining that her books need some sexy-time she realizes this is one thing she can't learn about just by watching.

Luckily for her, she discovers that her classmate Shigure, who's beloved by all g
I really enjoyed this. I have no idea why. Maybe because the main girl is a well-developed character that stands atop all the others? I really, really liked it.

It's a bit off the beaten path for a shoujo, so it doesn't feel like I've seen all this too many times.
I don't understand what this manga was going for. Missions of Love is a strange manga, not so much because of its content or characters who are all reiterations of tropes we have seen before, but because of its tone. The tone of this book feels all wrong.

The premise is really simple. There's this "icy" misunderstood girl who everyone is afraid of, this is our classic protagonist. In her spare time she writes cell phone novels, I would call them ficlets or drabbles, and she wants to up her game

The first volume of Watashi ni xx Shinasai! in its entirety does not disappoint, primarily because it's slightly different than the majority of shoujo mangas. When I look for a new series to read, I usually seek the ones that have better than average drawings, and on the aspect, I'd say this manga had pretty much good drawings - that is, a beautiful heroine and a handsome hero.

Sure enough, Himuro Yukina is different than most female leads that have been plaguing the shoujo genre. That was an adv

Got recommended this manga by Sabrine, thanks again. :)

I loved this first volume, Yukina-chan was so cute (and a bit of a ice princess, but I can imagine why she would put up that front. Poor her, having such a scary expression, and everyone getting scared and running away. :()

Shigure, ah Shigure, our lovely playboy, but he is oh so hot. *swoon*

I really loved the missions, and I will be sure to read the other volumes soon. :)

This is one hot manga. Seriously, the chemistry between the demanding cell-phone-novelist-in-secret Yukina and the popular womanizer Shigure is electric! Even though this story begins with Yukina needing a guinea pig for her 'love experiment' - understanding what love is so she can write about it, the distance between the blackmailer (Yukina who discovers Shigure's secret as a womanizer) and the balackmailee shortens! I'm intrigued by this mass of tangled loves.

Yukina is a keen observer of the student population, but she is always on the outside looking in. She is a famous (oh man, I can't even type it without laughing) cell phone novelist that goes by the name of "Yupina". Yeah, right. Like no one is ever going to pick up on that. Why don't you wear a pair of glasses while you're at it, because no one would know who you are then. Oh, wait. She does wear glasses. She wears the glasses to protect herself. Her glasses are her kryptonite.

Gee, these covers look like something straight out of a hentai.

"Missions of Love" or 'Watashi ni xx Shinsai' is a spicy little shojo, to say the least. Indeed, there isn't anything much original from it and it can be packed to the brim with its cliches. Mix all that in with nice, sensual art and an unhealthy (and also rather uncomfortable) romance revolving around black-mail and love triangles...And you have 'Missions of Love.'
Missions of Love isn't a bad manga. When it comes to shojo the genera

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get this volume. I found out about the series late, then it took me forever to add it to the list, and then to actually get the volume. And while this volume did not grab me completely, I’m intrigued, and hope to get the next volume when I can.

Yukina, the heroine, is a cell phone novelist, and no one but a friend, Akira, knows this. A lot of people at her school read the stories, though, and that’s how she gets
"And thus began... the game of love between two people... who felt nothing for each other!"

Yukina's strange demeanor and fondness for staring at people intently has earned her the title of "Snow Woman" throughout school. What everyone else doesn't know is that she's the secret writer beyond a series of cell phone novels that are as beloved as she is feared, and that they are the inspiration for her stories. When she overhears fan clamoring for romance, she panics about her lack of reference. But

"It's time for love. Secret cell phone novelist vs. the most popular boy in school. A mission of love for absolute servitute."

Not as cheesy as it sounds!

Just read the first manga of this and I love it! It's different and the characters aren't very cookie cutter. I don't like most highschool dramas but this one is pretty good! Even if a guy is a jerk blackmail is creepy but its a great story. I love how these two are always trying to trump eachother with their best wild cards. The humour is subtl

Released in the USA under the title Missions of Love. Different shoujo manga about a stoic girl and a manipulative guy that is a little flimsy.

Yukina is a high school student who moonlights as a cell phone novelist. However, she finds that despite her success at it, her fans note that she isn't good at love scenes. An opportunity may present itself when the always cheerful and popular Shigure reveals a secret. Can she learn love if she blackmails him?

Yukina is a strikingly different type of hero

My overall thoughts on this book , it was horrible * I can already picture fans of this manga looking at me with raised eyebrows because there must be something wrong with me*, but can someone please give me back my precious time. This book started out perfectly and the main cast actually had strong personalities but then it went downhill all of a sudden....At a point the author lost her way .I love how devoted Yukina was to writing her novel and was always open to criticism from her readers in ...more

I'm not very far into this one, but I can kind of already see where it's heading, so I figured I'd review a little earlier than normal.

Honestly, the fact it won the 36th Kodansha Manga award for best children's manga is what caught my attention more than anything, but it has a fairly unique concept. The artwork is also decent--average to slightly above average as far as shoujo goes, I'd say.

The actual execution of story, however, is disappointing. Maybe it's because I've read a whoolllle lotta

Ho riletto il primo numero in italiano perché l'avevo letto ai tempi - parliamo dal 2013, circa - in tedesco. Ho letto i primi 12 volumi; poi, avendo raggiunto la pubblicazione della Tokyopop mi ero fermata e ultimamente, visto che ho i restanti sette volumi a casa, cominciavo a chiedermi se non fosse il caso di mettermi lì e finire la serie.

Così, ho approfittato della pubblicazione della Star Comics per rinfrescarmi la memoria. Non mi ricordavo nulla, quindi era come leggerlo per la prima volta

The story line follows Yukina, a girl with ice cold hands and a scary glare, who writes cell phone novels. When the fans start to demand more love she finds herself in a tough spot. How would she write about love with no experience?

I'm starting to realize this manga might not be as unrealistic. I writing a book my self, and well... never had a boyfriend, never been kissed. Kinda makes it hard to write realistic love scenes. I'm just basing it off of other books, hoping I might get real experience soon.

Now the plot, in my opinion, was actually quite interesting. I found the book entertaining, but there were some serious cliches in it. Honestly, it's a manga that you might just forget about. It doesn't really stick in my min

Mi sono lanciata su questo nuovo shojo che ha una trama particolare e carina, e anche i disegni sono molto belli.

Ed ecco che ci si mette in mezzo il donnaiolo Shigure, e i due si stuzzicano a vicenda mentre Yukina prende ispirazione per le sue storie e inizia ad aprirsi a lui.

Read the first volume.

I do like the drawing style, for the most part, even though it makes the protagonist look about ten. It's a very shiny-eyed, detailed style. But the plot just felt familiar and overdone.

It was refreshing that it was the protagonist doing the blackmailing and that she held the power over the relationship (for a time), as it's usually some awkward "now you have to _______ or I'll tell all you write a novel/are a secret mangaka/work in a maid cafe" before spinning into love.

On the plus side I like how goal-oriented and aggressive Yukina is; forcing Shigure to play being in love with her isn't okay or nice by any definition but shoujo has an over abundance of nice heroines anyways. Besides he doesn't exactly qualify as a kind person himself. On the con side the latter half of the volume seemed like it was trying to soften her up and give Shigure a definite one up in their power game and ugh. I'll give the second volume a try but if this series sticks with the typica ...more
