Key points for Manga Recommendation – Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun
- Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun stands out for its excellent utilization of the dense main character stereotype, providing a refreshing and comedic take on romantic misunderstandings.
- The manga features a simple yet well-executed plot that revolves around Nozaki, a secretly famous manga author, and Sakura, an innocent girl caught in a series of amusing misunderstandings. The pacing of the story adds to its overall entertainment value.
- The main duo, Nozaki, and Sakura, along with a compelling cast of side characters, contribute to the manga’s overall charm. Their interactions and relationships add depth and humor to the storyline, making it a must-read for fans of comedic romance.
Once again, I am surprised that I have not talked about this manga on the website yet given how entertaining it is. After having something heavy like Paranoia Agent in the anime recommendation, something like this is perfect to balance it out. Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun is just as hilarious and entertaining as the title sounds. Like seriously, just how dense can a character truly be LOL. This manga has one of the best utilization of the dense MC stereotype, in my opinion.
So yes, welcome back to another edition of our manga recommendation series. This week we are talking about the awesome Montly Girls’ Nozaki-kun. Let’s get started!
Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun is written and illustrated by Tsubaki Izumi. It has been serialized in Gangan Online since August 2011 and it is still ongoing. It does have a 12-episode anime by Doga Kobo but as you may guess, the anime doesn’t cover the whole manga, only a fraction of it. Still, the anime is pretty decent and you can check that out as well if you want to.
The titular Nozaki-kun is secretly a famous manga author under the pseudonym of Sakiko Umeno. His work is pretty acclaimed as it is rather sensitive toward female readers. But, Nozaki himself has never been romantically involved. One day, he helps a girl called Chiyo Sakura. Over time, Sakura starts to like Nozaki and finally decides to confess her feelings to him. Nozaku misunderstands her as a fan of his work and simply hands her an autograph and leaves LOL. More misunderstandings continue and Sakura ends up working as his assistant. Yeah, good luck, girl.
See? Just that description of the plot alone sounds so much fun. And I promise you, the actual manga itself is way more entertaining. Simple plot but it is executed to perfection making it entertaining as hell to read. And it is paced really well on top of that.
This manga has some amazing characters. As I mentioned, Nozaki is one of the best utilizations of the dense MC troupe in my opinion. Sakura is just an innocent cinnamon roll LOL, it is so much fun to see her get caught up in Nozaki’s stuff. Their interactions are always entertaining as hell. Along with a strong main duo, comes a pretty decent cast of side characters too, making this manga even more entertaining.
Nothing much to say here. Pretty standard art style and stuff. Not much stands out, really. And that is perfectly fine. This manga doesn’t really need art to carry it. The art fits the tone of the manga, which is more than good enough.
That is all for now!
I recommend this manga for the following reasons:
- Funny plot
- Good characters
- Entertaining as hell
So yes, that’s all I got for now! Let me know what you guys think in the comments. And please check out Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun. It is hilarious. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
