Absolute Boyfriend

All Riiko Izawa wants is a boyfriend, but she has been rejected left and right by every guy she has ever liked. In a moment of desperation, she orders a special "Nightly Lover" figure from a website, and the next day, a extremely attractive naked man is delivered to her doorstep! Night, as Riiko names him, is the perfect boyfriend; he's sexy, smart, athletic, and is a gourmet cook. There's just one problem: he cost $1,000,000! Riiko can't let anyone know that Night is a doll, even though he knows almost nothing about humans. Can she find a way to pay for Night while keeping him a secret from her childhood friend Soshi next door?

Story: When first hearing of this I thought ''God, this sounds a bit weird O_O'' But since Yuu Watase had never let me down before I thought I'd try it and see. And I sure wasn't dissapointed. Humourous, lighthearted and sweet, Absolute Boyfriend is typical Shoujo fluffiness but with some added sparkle. The story grabbed me, the jokes made me laugh, I loved the characters and the only part I didn't like was the ending- tears were almost flooding out when I'd finished reading it, it was so bittersweet. Don't get me wrong- the ending WAS good, I just felt very sorry for one boy in particular, since he knew it would end the way it did and managed to tough it out till the end. The story really couldn't be flawed. Art: Though I found it a little simplified in comparison with Yuu Watase's previous works, I found myself liking the art style- it suited the story well and the chibi's were adooorable :3 Characters: The characters are so relatable in Absolute Boyfriend, you end up loving each and every one of them- from clueless Night to clumsy Riiko and problematic Gaku. The ability to easily fall in love with the characters is part of its ability to draw you in and thats also part of what makes the ending so tear-jerking, you end up considering the characters as completely real people and feel genuinely sorry for some as well as happy for others. Overall: Getting over how weird it may seem at first glance, Absolute Boyfriend is way more than a book about a girl who buys a figurine online due to her pent up sexual frustration at her lack of boyfriends; this manga's probably one of the best I've read and stands out for its great storyline and amazing characters.
