I admit, my first contact with this work was through the anime that just started airing this season (Winter 2019). I'm a romantic by nature, so I tend to gravitate towards that genre, but I'm usually disappointed by the fact that most of the stories have to throw so much comedy into the mix that it just becomes unreasonable. After one episode of this anime though, I was hooked. It had everything, romance, comedy, drama, ecchi, but all told in a reasonable down-to-earth manner that was believable enough to think that it really could happen this way (I've lived long enough to see a lot of these things happen and know the old saying "Truth is stranger than fiction" is very true). I was so hooked that I couldn't wait for episode 2 to find out more, so I started reading. It was impossible to put down, all the elements I mentioned before where there in an easy to read format that still somehow let you feel in the moment with the characters. Oh and the characters, I love them all. Yes, of course there are so stereotypes, but they still feel unique and different enough to not seem boring. Even when you know exactly what's gonna happen, you still can't help going on the journey with them because even knowing the ending, you don't want to miss a thing. While I've never been the biggest reader (because I'm slow as hell), I couldn't put this story down and preferred to miss sleep just to know a little more. If you have even the slightest interest in the genre, I whole-hearted recommend Domestic Girlfriend as a must read. My only disappointment is in the fact that since it's not completed, I now have to wait to find out what happens next.
I started reading this manga because it was on my recommendations, and it was the best thing I ever did. The characters are all likeable, and they are all very relatable for me. The characters seem so realistic that I can't help but fall in love with them and experience the story as if it was through my own eyes. The story is so good and enticing, it keeps you on the edge, making you want to know what is going to happen next, and I spend the whole day reading the manga, as I couldn't put it down until I caught up with the latest chapter! Overall, this manga is a great read, and one of the best I have read, as the characters and realistic enough to see the characters as real people to relate and take advice from.
If you like romance, have a thing for incest (in a way but not exactly in this show), enjoy emotional rollercoasters, and have a best girl that you would champion, this is the anime/manga for you! My beginning sentence may have been unclear but this manga is truly one-of-a-kind. The whole thing is a massive EMPTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER. This is the novel that made me unable to sleep at night and struggle to focus on daily tasks. I'm not saying that you shouldn't read it, but in fact the polar opposite. If you read this manga, you'll never regret it. In fact, you may have a whole new view on how Romance mangas should be! The plot of this manga isn't overexaggerated or "flowered up." The characters all experience development and realize what (and who) exactly they need in their lives. This novel is the one that'll make you cry when the characters cry, laugh when they laugh, and smile when they smile. If there is anything that I want you to do, it is to give this novel a try. TL;DR, This novel is for you. Read it. I promise that you won't be disappointed (the promise of a romance manga reader).
