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...!
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
Sketchy art style, but the characters are cute. Sometimes the chapters are in black and white, but for the most part the art is full color. It tells of the budding romance between a childishly small office worker and feir office companion, who laughs from the gut. Fe's self-conscious about being seen as child-like and is frequently annoyed at this coworker for laughing at fem, but also finds femself thinking about fem and wanting to spend time with fem. There are also two other coworkers who have their own budding romance, Kazama and Sakurai, as well as a childhood friend, Natsumi. These characters also snap pictures of the cuteness of the main couple. Some other characters have been introduced and sometimes they play recurring roles, but at other times they appear to be dropped altogether after their initial introductions. It's a story about people who reciprocate each other's feelings, but who are either unaware of their own feelings or unwilling to take the leap to progress their relationship. There's a lot of gift-giving and going to places together. For the most part, that's fine and can be cute, but it definitely becomes less adorable as the series goes on because it just starts feeling ridiculous. The artist probably tries matching the seasons within the comic to the real-world seasons at the time of the release--the characters have gone through three Christmases--but that means that these characters have had largely stagnant relationships for three years (which is definitely possible, but is much more depressing of a situation than the artist is probably going for).

Cute Series, but nothing crazy If you are looking for something SoL heavy, this is definitely a good manga to pick up. This series is a very quick read, with chapter often lasting only 4 to 5 pages. The artstyle is clean and chapters are in full color outside of the extras. With that said, don't come in looking for heavy story or romance. There are no real story arcs or major relationship developments within that past 180 chapters. One of the side relationships is also Shota (which honestly, I skip those chapters), so look out for that if that is uncomfortable for you. However, the series is still overall very charming and funny with a good cast of characters.
There are no custom lists yet for this series.
