Manga Review: First Love Monster Vol. 1

I've finished "First Love Monster Vol. 1" by Akira Hiyoshimaru.

Product Description

When you find out who I really am if you can still say you like me, then I'll be your boyfriend.

When fifteen-year-old Kaho Nikaidou leaves her sheltered home to start life anew in Tokyo, the last thing she expects is to nearly get hit by a truck! Saved in the nick of time by a handsome stranger, Kaho falls head over heels for him and boldly confesses her feelings.

My Review:

This manga is hilarious and silly which I highly recommend!

I think it's so cool how Kanade is so tall for a 11 yr. old and Kaho is so short and tiny for a 15 yr. old.

Wow all the fifth graders seem to be tall and act mature at times except for their leader who is as short as Kaho and the coolest one of them all.

Even though Kanade looks older and is good looking he is still a 11 yr. old who plays in sandboxes and goes on secret missions which Kaho gets caught up in his childish schemes.

I hated the part where Taga the University student attacks Kaho because he hates how she was raised and the way she acts and feels.


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada/Yen Press for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
