Meh. I expected a clichéd shoujo manga from the title and I suppose I shouldn't be disappointed that I got it, but the lead character was a bit too stereotypically dense for my liking and the male lead (as usual) has more sparkles than personality. I'm sure you can find better examples of the genre, but I will grant that the art is adorable, and if you're just in the mood for formulaic fluff this is cute enough. ( )

The story centers around the relationship between Rena and Tomoya. Rena is your not-so typical middle school student due to the fact that she is also a popular mangaka (manga artist), whom while drawing love scenes, bumps into also popular Tomoya. Rena, out of desperation for more material asks Tomoya to be her boyfriend for research purposes thinking there is now way he would want to be her girlfriend just because she is who she is. However, the reason Tomoya agrees is not for the reasons Rena thinks.

This is a great little Manga for those who like romantic Manga. It also takes the opportunity to point out some of the absurdities of Shojo as it is usually written. It's light hearted, funny, and a great read for a cozy afternoon. The story that is previewed at the end of this book is also very interesting and I will be picking that up next. I will definitely purchase this series. ( )

High-schooler Rena Sakura has a secret - though at first she may seem like a typical teenage girl, she's actually a popular mangaka, with her works published under a pyseudonym. All her stories are hopelessly romanctic, and yet Rena herself has never even had a boyfriend. That is, until she meets Tomoya, the most popular guy in school and all supreme hottie. After discovering her secret, Tomoya agrees to being Rena's boyfriend, but only for research purposes.

The basic plot line is as cliched as can be - super hot guy falls for unlikely girl - yet I still enjoyed the book. I recommend to all fans of shoujo.
