Natsuki, an otaku high-school girl who'd rather spend her money on manga than pretty dresses, accidentally injures a creepy-looking mangaka named Kiritani Taichi. To repay him, she agrees to be his character model until he fully heals. Kiritani turns out to be a popular shoujo mangaka under the name Ichijou Kiriko, who is also Natsuki’s favorite author! Plus, underneath that disheveled hair Kiritani is actually a good-looking man! What will become of these two?
Story This manga is the story of a girl who falls in love with a mangaka. While the plot is nothing particularly groudbreaking, I did find it to be cute, funny, and enjoyable. Though there are several shoujo cliches, this manga does them well and even seems to be self aware of it. Art The art isn't great, but it isn't terrible either. It does it's job, but not much more. The character designs are fine, but the lack of backgrounds and the occasional use of stick figures (though to be fair, those were comedy relief scenes) hurts it. Characters I found the characters to be pretty likable (especially the female main character). I also liked the interactions between the female main character and the mangaka she falls in love with. My only critique would be that the side characters could probably use a little more development, but I'm perfectly fine with the main characters. Overall While this isn't the greatest manga ever made, it's still fun and entertaining for what it is. If you like cute shoujo romantic comedies, then you will probably enjoy this one.
