I really don’t get the hype on this one. It makes for a good toilet read that you can wipe with when you are done!
Absolutely ridiculous and predictable. How did this book get an anime? Oh, fan service… Lots of bouncing boobies and panty shots!

This book is witty and fun. Its a supernatural J highschool sitcom complete with highschool pranks/humour. Unfortunately this one is your typical, run of the mill, slice of life meets “I’m the only human/stranger in this crazy place” thing. I really hate self-insert series and Mary Sue main characters. This includes both as mains! The artwork itself is this books only redeeming feature. After reading 2 1/2 volumes of this series I don’t see it getting any better.

Its like the original Sailor Moon anime with its character building and very short fight sequences. Every other chapter is a new rival turned love interest. its very harem and everyone is chasing either or both the main male and female lead.

It was cute an interesting at first but after reading the second volume as well, it just got repetitive.

It feels like a knockoff of Tsukiyomi Moon Phase but in a highschool setting with 0 plot.

This book does have great art that is not served any justice by the extremely dragged out main plot. It does have a great premise but the story, too sitcom / serial. There isn’t much plot progression.
