MangaCast Review: Love Com, vol. 3
Be sure to head over to MangaCast for my review of Love Com, vol. 3. If you've never been to MangaCast before, check it out for the latest in manga news and reviews, and rankings from Japan!
Here's an excerpt from my review:
Risa Koizumi is the tallest girl in her class and Atsushi Otani is the shortest guy. Together, they form their school’s “all Hanshin-Kyojin duo,” after the famous Osaka comedy team. At first, they can’t seem to stand one another, but quickly learn that they do have a few things in common, namely their love of Umibouzu, a fictional hip-hop artist. And as things often go in shojo manga, they swiftly become the unwilling stars in a ridiculous romantic comedy of high school proportions. ... Love Com is one of those series that grabs you by the funny bone straight out of the box. Whether it’s the back-and-forth bickering between Risa and Otani, the situations they’re put in or the supporting cast of friends that surround the main couple, there’s bound to be lots of giggling and guffawing.
