Natsuaki-kun is aloof, handsome, and popular with the ladies…except to his friends, who know his aloofness is because he’s shy and always in his own thoughts. Thoughts always occupied by his oddball classmate, Nashida-san…but try as he might, Natsuaki-kun can’t ever seem to get up the courage to confess. Can he find a way to tell her how he feels?!


Rating: 4 out of 5.

This manga is SO cute. I love how Natsuaki-kun comes off as so cool and aloof but it’s really just because he’s so intensely absorbed eith his crush on Nashida-san! Nashida is borderline TSTL, just completely oblivious and clumsy and cute more in the way a baby woodland animal is cute than traditionally pretty. I just love how INTO IT Natsuaki is, and they’re both different types of “no thoughts, only vibes” sweet little creatures. I just want to hug them!

A digital ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review. All opinions are unbiased and my own.
