  • Genre: Shōjo
  • Author: Marina Umezawa


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.
