Manga Review: Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Volume 2, by Izumi Tsubaki

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: February 2016
Volumes: 7+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 3.

Goodreads Synopsis:

A cast of real characters assembles around Nozaki-kun!

Umetarou Nozaki, a high school student leading a double life as an ultra-popular shoujo mangaka, is an extraordinary guy. But not to be outdone by Nozaki-kun, the people who hang out with him are pretty unique in their own rights too for some reason...and that's just one way of putting it...

With the main cast finally assembled, the romance and gags are turned up a notch in Volume 2 of this zany comedy!


Similarly to her Oresama Teacher series, this one is starting to collect so many characters I’m going to have a hard time following them all. I think either setting works well for her comedy gags, though, and it is definitely a reason to keep reading.
Lots and lots of gags and jokes on characters in this volume, of course. I do particularly enjoy when they’re related to Nozaki’s writing, like when he bases a character off a classmate, or when someone is roped into helping him.
I do enjoy this series, and I would like to keep reading. I’m just not loving it. I don’t find it hilarious, and I don’t laugh at all of the jokes. Most of them are just okay, but then there are ones I like a lot. I’m just iffy right now.
Though it is making me debate picking Oresama Teacher back up and continuing it.
