It took him two volumes to admit that he likes her.I know it was meant to be funny, and sometimes I laughed as well, but to be honest it felt very sad.Unlike many other shoujo mangas, Love Com has likeable characters.Risa isn't afflicted by that shoujo stupidity and romantic desperation that plagues many protagonists; Otani is not your stock supposedly-perfect-but-gets-weak-when-it-comes-to-love romantic interest.In 2004 Lovely Complex received the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo. This is a very funny manga and I have no complains regarding any character... First off, let me tell you that I've been reading a lot of oneshots lately.Maybe that's why a long series tires me out sometimes?
Some flaws with the series: some of the arcs and dialogue feel a bit fabricated.
Lovely Complex (or just Love Com) is honestly one of the best shoujo manga reads you will probably ever have in your lifetime.
I actually can't begin to explain how this thing grows on you in such a short time.
This manga is not a deeply profound, life-altering discourse on romance and friendship.
It's great for some laughs, and I fell in love with Risa's persona.
