Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun 1 by Izumi Tsubaki
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: November 17, 2015
To the eyes of classmate Chiyo Sakura, high school student Umetarou Nozaki--brawny of build and brusque of tongue--is a dreamboat! When Chiyo finally works up the courage to tell Nozaki how she feels about him, she knows rejection is on the table...but getting recruited as a mangaka's assistant?! Never in a million years! As Chiyo quickly discovers, Nozaki-kun, the boy of Chiyo's dreams, is a manga artist...a hugely popular shoujo manga artist, that is! But for someone who makes a living drawing sweet girly romances, Nozaki-kun is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to matters of the heart in reality. And so Chiyo's daily life of manga making and heartache begins!
I have fallen behind on Oresama Teacher, but I did like Tsubaki's Magic Touch series. And given how much hype this series has had, with requests for it before it was even announced, I’m intrigued. I’m looking forward to reading it, and am optimistic about liking it. It looks good, and possibly more my type than Oresama Teacher has been.
