My name is Futaba Igarashi, and my senpai, Takeda-san, is annoying. He's big, loud, always in the way, and treats me like a child because he's so tall and I'm so short. But he's also kind, caring, and willing to go above and beyond for me. For example, he stopped some pervert from filming up my skirt when we took the train together, gave me a drink when I was pulling a long shift, and even came over to my place when I was cooped up with a cold. What gives?! If he keeps acting like this, people are going to think we're dating or something...!
Working in an office is a very stressful experience and it is always a huge blessing to find a job with caring colleagues, you can hang out with and just with people, who are ready to help. My Senpai is Annoying focuses on Igarashi Futaba, who is a hardworking young lady. Harumi Takeda is her senpai, who always teases her and jokes about her height; he is just the only source of annoyance for Futaba at work. This changes, however, when Futaba finds out more about Harumi. My Senpai is Annoying is a romantic comedy manga that will surely make you smile!My Senpai is Annoying is an enjoyable read simply because of the fact that it uses many clichés and makes a masterpiece out of them. It is just a very heartwarming story to read; you just read a new chapter and cannot help but smile. Igarashi Futaba does not appreciate that her senpai treats her like a kid, but, at the same time, he is always there to help her in various situations, which she, of course, highly appreciates, but she also remembers him treating her like a child, which makes her act somewhat tsunderish.Regrettably, I disliked the fact that the manga does not pay the supporting characters the due respect. It feels that they could get a bit more character development. That way, the manga would have looked wholesome. In addition to this, just a minor flaw that is not worth mentioning at all, the manga chapters are way too short, but it is not that much of a problem.Still, as a romance, this manga is quite a good one. It feels realistic, because it does not jump to ‘I love you’ immediately, but stays at the stage when both lovers are incredibly embarrassed and it is just cute to observe their actions. Of course, the manga could have given the supporting characters more time to shine, nevertheless it is still a very enjoyable read as a romantic comedy.
The art is pretty good. I started reading this after seeing memes from the manga. Started off pretty wholesome too. The main couple in the series (Takeda and Igarashi) are pretty shippable. Then comes Touko and Souta. Love these characters. I would absolutely watch a show with just these two. Then the author just had to bring disgusting Shota thingy into this. Completely ruined all the build-up for the series. Sure, there are no sexual activities involved but just swap genders, and BOOM! They're not so cute anymore. A full-grown adult flirting with a middle/high schooler is sexual harassment. Even if Natsumi may reject Yujin's feelings for her, she lead him on. Not a fan of that. PS: Shotacons are just as messed up as lolicons. Read till chapter 140
Absolute gem of a manga. Avoids most of the cringy tropes associated with moe and executes them in a fun, refreshing office setting. The usage of tsundere is rarely over-the-top and a sense of ironic humor parlays extremely well with a beautiful artstyle. Entire manga is in color (except for specials) and succeeds in capturing a warm and cozy, yet energetic feel. I heard that they recently announced an anime adaptation and I cannot be more excited. My only complaint might be that the main relationship has been developing at a pretty slow pace, but I'm willing to overlook that and give this a 10/10 given how charming, earnest, and refreshing this story has been.
