Peach Girl

With a noticeable tan and bleached hair, Momo Adachi is a high school student who is frequently misunderstood by her classmates. She's accused of being a playgirl and is the subject of many rumors, most of which originate from her ‘best friend' Sae who is jealous of Momo due to them having a crush on the same boy. Momo's life only gets worse when Kairi Okayasu, who she once saved from drowning, decides to make her his own. Kairi coming into Momo's life only encourages Sae to spread more rumors about Momo and Kairi while going after Toji herself, creating quite a complicated situation for everyone involved.

If you like relationship drama, you have come to the right place. Get ready for one of the most craziest, frustrating, and infuriating tales of lies and deceit, all in the name of love. Story: Dear goodness. Just when you think Momo has faced and gotten past one trial of love, another pops up right in front of her. She can never seem to get it right. The story is DRIVEN by the lack of trust between characters and the lack of information they have/choose to seek. Assumptions make and sometimes break this story. Several plot developments could be solved if Momo just ASKED the other person what was going on or what was his intention in doing something. The developments of each problem, as the story progresses, become almost exhausting as the characters begin to repeat the same mistakes over and over again, without learning a thing from the last time. Still, it is very drama filled and does offer several page turning moments. Art: Good. Not my particular favorite style, but very nice. The outfits look well drawn, the characters never seem to be unproportioned and the characters seem to be distinguishable. There is no way that you will be able to confuse the two male leads, they look so different. The females get more of a homogenous, same face-different hair treatment, but it doesn't get to the point that everyone appears like one big blur. Characters: There is barely a character that I like in this manga. Momo the lead is too gullible, untrusting, and plain stupid most of the time, falling for trap after trap and deception after deception almost without fail. Sae is pure evil: manipulative, self-centered, egotistical, and unafraid to allow someone to get hurt (and I mean REALLY hurt) just to get what she wants. Touji is a rock, as in, emotionally unavailable half the time, quick to anger, and just as susceptive to the trickery of Sae as Momo,maybe even more so. The only character that I liked was Kairi. He really was the only one who had any depth actually. He has a backstory that explains his off the wall behavior and is one of the few that Sae cannot manipulate like a puppet. Out of the 4 leads, I only liked 1. How nice. Overall: At first I wanted to rate this lower, but then I realized that the manga did one thing: made me never forget it. And for that it does average, just in the middle. You can read this if you like, but if you are deciding between this and another shoujo manga, don't be afraid to choose the other one. Besides an unlikable and infuriating cast, a mediocre story, and some nice artwork, you aren't missing much.

Story: Drama, drama, drama. It's like a high school soap opera. It's really addicting and you're done with a volume before you know. It's got plenty of drama, comedy and romance. It can be pretty melodramatic at times but it does good with what it's going for. I don't have as much problem with the story as I do with the characters but I'll get to that. I did like the ending. Warning though: it's very addicting. VERY ADDICTING. Also, I did like the Peach Girl code: Love yourself for who you are. I thought it was a really nice touch. Art: The art is ok. Sometimes the dramatic scenes don't do it for me. I think it's too much and not well done. The characters look ok but not that attractive. The clothing is weird too. There are a lot of sparkles and blushes but that's to be expected. The backgrounds are ok but not that great. It wasn't an eyesore but I definitely wouldn't want to go to out and buy the art book. Characters: Annoying. I liked Momo at first but she killed it for me with her attitude toward certain situations (I don't want to give anything away). They all make bad decisions that don't make a lot of sense. There usually is a better way to handle a situation but they just don't think. I really don't like these characters. They do show some development but, by the point, I'm really annoyed. One of my least favorite casts and is the reason why Peach Girl is given such a low score. Overall: If you love drama, romance and are willing to put up with hella annoying characters, Peach Girl is for you. If you love drama, romance and somehow are willing to put up with hella annoying characters, you'll probably finish Peach Girl but be ashamed that you read it. By the way, I wouldn't read the fan mail thing at the end of the volume about Sae because it's just irritating.
