Summary: A college girl looks for love and will probably end up with her crush’s best friend, her gay neighbor, but don’t ask me how that works.
Gut reaction: grounded, un-obnoxious, college instead of high school, mature people for once.
Why: The characters are realistic, and although they aren’t especially deep, they aren’t shallow at all. The strange portrayal of LGBTQ+ is strange, but I guess he’s bi-sexual? I’ll be interested in how they pull this off. However, they deserve credit for a realistic homosexual character instead of the derogatory okama stance. The heroine, Suzuna, has no tragic back story or Mary-Sue qualities whatsoever. The story plays out like real life without bathos and it’s possible, although not likely, that it’ll end with the friendship ending.
Who would like this book: realistic LGBTQ+ fans (not an LGBTQ+ story though), shoujo fans. I’ll read until the end because I’m curious and it’s good so far.
