Saw there's a few chapters out, clicked on it... Hesitated and then hit the back button. After KNIM I have no interest in Seo anymore.

    Yeah... I don't think I can keep following this series. Just like my attempt at the precursor series, I'm just finding it too generic and awkward to read. There's nothing truly interesting about it. :/

    I'll still read this for the lawls.

     

    I kind of like Seo's art-style, tbh.

     

    Of course, I do hope this manga gets progressively better.

    I didn't hate KNIM as much as you guys (though I agree it was about 50 chapters too long) and I'm a big fan of Half & Half so I'm willing to give this series a longer rope than I probably would.

    Got caught up with this not too long ago. Fell a few chapters behind. I think the biggest problem this manga has early on is that there's little personality in the cast aside from the title character and to a lesser extent the MC. This problem is most apparent in the MC's family. It seems like everything that comes out of the sisters' mouths is either boring or generic archetype crap. The few side characters at school aren't much better. Maybe things will change as the series goes on, but there's no depth in the cast at this point. Maybe the idol childhood friend will be decent.

     

    I do like Fuuka, though. She seems like a pretty decent character. She seems to be a weird combination of Seo's previous MC's, so she's interesting to watch in that aspect. I also like how there's been some early relationship development between the two leads. That's always nice to see.

     

    So yeah, pretty average so far. I'm still going to follow it for a bit to see how things go.

    Lol! Am I losing it? I'm actually starting to enjoy this manga a little bit. One thing that is throwing me off though is the art. In a couple scenes Fuuka looked a lot like some of the girls from KNIM. Lol! It through me a bit for some reason in this chapter.

    Wow. 8 chapters in & we're having a <3 triangle.

    Wouldn't surprise me one bit if they go on to team up to form a duo.

    Seo has a reputation of making pushover guy MC's. It'd be refreshing if we were introduced to an actually likeable "cool" MC for once. Yuu is the most passive, beta-mentality, introverted, "I need a strong female lead to teach me how to do society properly" MC by far. I do, however, like the introduction of Mikasa as the supportive male friend though. 

     

    As for the whole thing about the cameos. I don't really mind them. To me they're kinda w/e. I'm sure it's fun for readers who liked Suzuka and I bet Seo likes to showcase his creations in an alternate universe anyways. Who knows when we'll be introduced to adult Yamato. Maybe we'll even see Hehruto and bricks-for-brains Eba.

    Still Meh on this series, seems like Seo watched White Album before coming up with this idea.

    I would like this manga more if Seo didn't insist on these ecchi moments that just happen randomly (usually because some trips or falls). It's unnecessary to me.

    I'm considering reading this manga. Dumped it after the first chapter because the MC and the main girl were too stupid. Has it gotten any better, or is this typical Seo?

    Well, TBH it's been a very generic story so far. Fuuka herself is somewhat interesting and the main protagonist fluctuates between annoying and likeable. I'm reading it more in the hopes that the story improves more so than because it's good. If you're on the fence then I would suggest you wait until the manga reaches 20-25 chapters before reading. By then they'll be enough story to determine if it's really any good.

    You aren't missing anything that's for sure. Fuuka isn't too bad of a heroine, she seems upbeat and you at least get the feel she likes the MC. Unfortunately, that is the extent of the appeal to the story so far IMO. The rest is pretty boring which is better than frustrating I guess. Thankfully they don't focus on how dense the MC is concerning his childhood friend/super idol that takes the time to contact him all the time, but I'm sure it is coming.

     

    I don't have high hopes for this getting better, it seems like it might be headed for some kind of poor version of a "White Album" type plot.
