Maaya Kisaragi, 16 years old, finally confessed to her crush…only to be flatly rejected and ridiculed on social media after. To make matters worse, the most popular guy in her grade, Chigira-kun, overheard her despondent muttering about the whole thing. But instead of making fun of her, he comforts her…and proposes an odd solution to her heartbreak!
Oh my gooooosh!!! This! Is so! Cute!! Maya is such a sweetheart and I adore her and how earnest she is. I love a good fake relationship trope, and the second Chigira suggested she pretend to have a one-sided love for him I was completely sold on this manga. I wasn’t expecting to so completely fall for the two of them as a couple. The shopping scene with the dog toys was my absolute favorite part, and I love seeing Maaya through Chigira-kun’s eyes.
I can’t wait to read the next volume of this series. I hope Maaya learns to see herself more and more the way Chigira seems to see her!
