Their conversations then was overheard by the guy, Sata Kyouya. Erika went to explain and proposed her idea of faking as lovers. However, Sata who gave off the nice-charming feelings guy turns out to be a black prince and used her reasons to blackmail her instead.
My review: It is a comedy romance filled with friendship goals and cuteness. Witnessing Erika and Sata’s growing relationship was adorable and felt real.

Synopsis: This could happen to any girl. Imagine being a heroine of a love story. Hatori also believed that one day she would get married to her childhood friend, Rita. But that’s not how the world works! She wasn’t the leading lady of her prince charming!
My review: It’s hilarious and sad at the same time but I loved everything about it. Hatori was a very endearing character to me, she felt real and I found myself rooting for her to finally realize that she doesn’t need to settle for a second character life, she can be her own heroine and still have her perfect leading man.

Title: Hana-kun to Koisuru Watashi
Author: Kumaoka Fuyu
Status: Ongoing with 10 volumes
Synopsis: Nanase Sakashita is good at playing the role of the model Student but that doesnt stop her from taking an interest in Hana-kun, the schools delinquent. Hana-kun accidently drops a small box while sneaking around on the school grounds. When Nanase tries to return the box, Hana-kun tells her to keep it for its already too late to give it to the person he likes. She then wonders who might be that person!
My review: This one portrays the unlikely love story of a top student and the school’s trouble maker. I loved how Nana influenced Hana in a good way and how they finally come to recognize their feelings for each other. I also liked how Hana man up and chased after her instead of keeping to himself and choosing to ignore his feelings.
Title: Strobe Edge
Author: Sakisaka Io
Status: Completed with 10 volumes
Synopsis: Having no experience in romance, the vibrant Ninako curiously explores the meaning of what “love” really is, and is surprised to feel a colorful range of emotions as she grows closer to the school heartthrob, the quiet yet gentle Ren, who also happens to be involved in a longtime relationship.
My review: I have long been conflicted about this manga. I could relate to Ninako especially knowing she is just a high school kid in love with the school’s idol but I still couldn’t chase the fact that he already had a girlfriend. Still, I did enjoy reading it to the end and it is one of my most memorable Mangas to this day.
