Review Fall In Love Like a Comic volumes 1-2 (complete)Written by WarpshadowRating fair
I have read dozens of shoujo stories and This is probably the worst of the batch. It hangs together by a single bishonen who isnít even as interesting as the protagonists in even mediocre shoujo stories.
Rena Sakura is an enterprising fifteen year old girl in that she is a manga artist for the shoujo magazine Cha Mi. She has one big problem in that she has never had a boyfriend. One day she meets a handsome boy in her school named Tomoya and get the idea that she should start dating him as a way to get more experience for drawing her manga. Yet as she will soon learn love is not something that you can simply experience from a distance.Fall In Love Like a Comic is a shoujo manga, which in and of itís self is not a bad thing except for the fact that it reads like an unfunny parody of most shoujo manga out there. Itís primary attraction is watching the main character (who bizarrely enough looks like she should be in elementary school despite being fifteen) squeal like a silly fan girl over a fairly generic bishonen character. The main problems with this manga is that it depends on a romantic plot that is far too simple and devoid of real complication between two underdeveloped characters. This is a manga I would not recommend to anybody of any gender.
