Summary

Meet Yoshida. He’s cool, he’s smart, and he’s really, really good-looking. He’s the company superstar, and has the eye of every available woman for miles around. But Yoshida only loves one woman — the manga-artist and walking-disaster Sena Shimakaze. Yoshida is the glue that holds her whole team together and helps them limp through each and every deadline… but despite his personal greatness and obvious management skills, his love is somehow totally one-sided. What’s an overachiever like Yoshida to do?

Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This manga is so cute and hilarious! Yoshida is a handsome businessman who is head over heels for his mangaka childhood BFF, Sena, and helps her out as a part-timer working on her manga. She is ABSOLUTELY clueless, obviously. I love the rom-com moments in this comic, which is told partially through the viewpoint of the new part-timer on the team as he gets to know their wacky dynamic. This is a super fun manga, and I can’t wait for volume 2!

A digital ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review. All opinions are unbiased and my own.
