Itoshi no Karin

Yutaka Hanagasaki is 20-year-old gardener at the theme park Fuegaoka. Merun-chan, the mascot of Fuegaoka, is very popular. Hanagasaki just so happens to secretly like her, but can never work up the courage to even talk to her, always admiring her from afar like a flower. A sweet story of how Hanagasaki works up the courage and becomes closer to Merun!

Warning this review may contain spoilers: So here I am reviewing the manga Itoshi no Karin which is a romance surrounding an idea of man falling in love with a co-worker. So the basic idea of the story is that we have the main male (Yutaka Hanagasaki) who falls in love with the girl who is the site mascot, Merun-chan. STORY So like I have mentioned this is a light series surroudning the idea that a man falls in love with his co-worker. We start the first chapter with a bit of an introduction to the story. Yutaka Hanagasaki is our male lead and the story is pretty much him building up the courage to confess to this girl, well this is the impression the 1st chapter gives off. The story so far is limited in drama and really is just a light read. I probably would say more but the manga is quite predictable so I don't want to spoil too much about it. ART The art is light and fluffy just like what the manga is trying to portray, the character designs are cute and some of the facial expressions are well presented. For example in the image above I have taken a liking to the  Merun design, this is one of the examples where you can see every little detail. CHARACTERS So far not too many  characters have been introduced however there have been a few. SO lets start off with the main male Yutaka Hanagasaki, he (to be honest) is a bit plain. Just a gardener who has fallen in love with a character (well the girl dressed up as a character). Merun (Or Karin as revealed in C.2) is a cute girl, but really she is just like most others you see in manga like this. Side characters really don't come in as much as other manga and the story is only around the main two. Due to the fact that the manga is only 20 chapters I guess they wanted the story to be just about the main characters. -AngelBeatsYui-
