For all you Manga Lovers out there. I present to you this weeks Manga Review, Hatsukoi Wazurai. Boy was this one crazy. It’s always so cute when I see this kind of storyline in any manga or anime. What else were they expecting to happen!

She’s escorting boy to make them believe in love. Though she doesn’t know anything about love, he’ll teach her what “love” really means… From Shoujo-Sense: High school student Hotaru has never been in love. To her, it’s a mysterious feeling, despite the advice of those around her, and she finds herself wishing she could experience it for herself… That is, until she meets Shinri—handsome, popular, and a shameless flirt—who offers to teach her about love. Could this be her chance to understand the mysterious feeling at last? And what, exactly, are Shinri’s intentions?
Story: The story was pretty cute and funny. They go on ‘dates’ to help her learn about love. Eventually things take a more serious turn and they fall in love. There were a few moments where things took an unexpected turn, which was exciting! It’s always nice to see the artist’s sense of humor shine through her work. I love that, since this manga is made up of three volumes. There was enough time for things to flow smoothly. I wouldn’t have minded a few more chapters to enjoy!
Characters: I really liked Shinri’s personality. He’s very confidant and flirtatious. Yet he has a deep secret I did not expect at all. Hotaru’s conquest for love is very admirable. It’s rare to see when a female character is open about her feelings, and takes charge.
Art: As per usual, Hatsukoi Wazurai is very beautifully drawn. The artist did tone down some of the eye work on the male lead, which I appreciated. Unlike with her other work, here.
Now, I will leave you with a few snippets of this love story.
