Manga Review: Kiss Him, Not Me!, Volume 6, by Junko

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: August 2016
Volumes: 11+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 5. 7.

Goodreads Synopsis:

It's Kae, again! After the heart-stopping showdown between the Mutsumi brothers, things looked like they might finally settle down again, but a bold confession from Mutsumi-sempai spurs all the boys into action!

It's like a real life otome game as everyone tries to plan the best romantic afternoon, but it's so much pressure to choose, much less think about having a boyfriend! Especially when there are bigger problems to worry about...

Shima-chan and I are all fired up about a new anime that's perfect for us fujoshi, but we end up not seeing eye to eye! Can a friendship built on boys' love survive a vicious shipping war?!


We see the boys fighting as they try to keep Mutsumi from confessing to Kae, which doesn't seem to help their chances of her falling for them, if you ask me. This results in a trial date for everyone.
But, of course, there are no answers coming, as is proven when Kae becomes obsessed with yet another fictional boy instead of any of the real ones in front of her.
After that, Kae and Shima have a true fujoshi fight when their yaoi ship doesn't quite match up. It's a fun reprieve, and it's nice to see the geeking stories again.
This series is plain fun. It's girly, geeky comedy at its best. It's always fun to read more of it.
