Love Me, Love Me Not features two heroines who are different in so many ways but make good friends for each other. Yuna is innocent in love and wants a first and true love like in manga. Akari falls in love quite a bit and is more outgoing and isn’t afraid to put herself out there. Both girls are ...more
This manga was filled with some amazing artwork, as always with Io Sakisaka. I found this was not her strongest manga that I've read, and it felt like it lacked that certain spark that made Strobe Edge and Ao Haru Ride so amazing.
The story follows two friends, Yuna and Akari and how their different ideas of love are conflicting, each with their own strong points and not so strong points. Yuna is very dreamlike with love, and ...more
This was incredible! I love the characters and their friendships, and the romances in this made me blush (lame, I know, but whatever). I want volume 2 ASAP! because that ending has me shook.
I was so excited when I found out that we were getting a new series from the amazing Io Sakisaka. I feel very blessed to be an early reviewer on this first volume.
Let me start of by saying that I am interested to see how readers feel at the trope that is introduced at the end of this volume. But first, let me back up.
We initally meet 2 young women who are polar opposites, but become fast friends over a shared experience. Yuna and ...more
This was pretty sweet - it probably would have been better if I read it in physical book form because in electronic it always gets a bit confusing where you are. Anyway, pretty cute... ...more
When I saw the author of Ao Haru Ride, one of my FAVOURITE shojo mangas of all time, had a new series that I didn't know about, I just knew I had to check it out! And I wasn't disappointed!
From this first volume alone, I can already tell that this is going to be an amazing manga series. I really love all the characters that have been introduced so far, and I can't wait to find out more about their back-stories!
The ending to v.1 ...more
(Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review)
Now, my copy was only a preview copy, so the company cleverly edited out some key panels, BUT I think I know most of what happened thanks to later conversations in the book. Clever.
Yuna and Akari meet by chance on the day Yuna’s best friend moves away and Akari is also saying goodbye to someone very dear to her. An act of kindness at the train station quickly evolves into a wonderful friendship between two girls who are very ...more
Yuna is an idealist, she longs to find her true love and finds comfort in manga and the idea that her prince will one day come for her. Akari is more of a realist, she believes that if you want to find love you need to make a move. When Yuna finds Rio, a boy that seems to be the prince that she had always hoped for Akari is quick to bring her back to earth. Rio is her step brother and ...more
Love Me, Love Me Not was a really cute story. It had characters that were both likeable and relatable and the way that Sakisaka wrote them, will allow for a lot of depth and growth to be introduced as the story continues! There were the beginnings of typical high school drama ...more
Love it, love it, love it!!! Manga has been always brings me to express pure joy while reading it. It’s so natural, so pure, its everyone stories too.
Yuna, a girl who has lack of confidence, always looked down everytime she talked to someone else, made friends with Akari, the attractive girl, so confident and positive, they’re totally different but that’s how they complete each other.
They’re friendships bring them to continue ...more
Ao Haru Ride has remained on my favorites list for as long as I’ve been reading manga, so I’m very excited that this work by Io Sakisaka is finally here!
The artwork is beautiful as always, her style is so iconic and it’s refreshing seeing it again.
The story centers around two heroines, polar opposites in their ideals of love. Innocent Yuna, who still hasn’t had a relationship ...more
I read this manga when it first came out, but back then Ao Haru Ride had barely finished and I was still so attached to those characters and that story that I truly believed that nothing that Io Sakisaka-sensei would come next would be as good as that work
And maybe that's why back then I didn't give this manga that much of a chance and hence why I didn't like it that much neither connected with its characters.
Ah I loved this! This was so great! I loved so many things about this manga.
This story follows our two heroines, Yuna and Akari who become unlikely fast friends.
I really loved the friendships in this story! Yuna and Akari have a sweet supportive friendship and it’s my favourite part of the story.
I enjoyed the starting of the relationships between the love interests. I’m excited to see where the relationships go.
I requested this manga on NetGalley after I read Not Your Idol Volume 1 and really loved it. It made me want to read more mangas, so I bought a ridiculous amount of manga and I requested more books by the same publishers to see if I would like more of what is coming out. I'm so glad that I requested this manga because I didn't realise it was by the same author that created Ao Haru Ride. I own all of the ...more
This was just an okay read for me. There really wasn’t anything special in this that made me fall in love with it, everything was just pretty mediocre.
The characters didn’t seem to have a lot of dimension, at least not until the last few pages. I didn’t really like the insta love aspects to it either.
I probably won’t be continuing on with this series.
This is a cute slice of life manga about Yuna and her friend Akari as they find love in high school. It's very predictable, which isn't bad!, and it's also very realistic.
I loved the friendship between the two girls and how there's no love triangle involving them. They both love different boys and they both truly want happiness for the other. Girl friendships for the win!
And as always I love Io Sakisaka's art style.
This is a nice start to what looks to be a very cute and sweet manga. I wasn't sure I wanted to request it because I worried this would develop into a love triangle, so I sincerely hope the story doesn't go in that direction. I'm hoping it'll only go as far as misunderstandings and the girls trying to cheer each other on while also protecting each ...more
So I definitely went into this book with the wrong impression. For some reason, I thought it was a girl’s love manga! However, I’m pleasantly surprised by the focus on female friendship.
The art is fresh, and the writing is really good. It left on a cliffhanger that had me wanting to read more!
