Houkago x Ponytail

Natsuki, an otaku high-school girl who’d much rather spend her money on manga than pretty dresses, accidentally injures a creepy-looking mangaka Kiritani Taichi. To repay him, she agrees to be his character model until he fully heals. Kiritani-san turns out to be popular shoujo mangaka Ichijou Kiriko, who is also Natsuki’s favourite author! What will become of these two?

Avely’s Rating: 7/10

Avely’s Notes: Predictable as they come. Art is pleasant with good detail for the eyes. Manga is rather cute. Recommend for someone who wants an adorable love story with all the shoujo goodness but no originality. The length of the story is short and sweet. The misunderstandings and drama are not overbearing precisely because it’s short, conflict resolved easily. Ending definitely “awww” worthy.


Candy’s Rating: 7/10

Candy’s Notes: Short, sweet and to the point. Cute manga, albeit it followed all the cliches. The ending was super adorable. Not much to say about this manga. Typical misunderstandings and confessions abound in this one. What was really cute was the innocence of the mangaka. It was a funny manga and the comedy meshed well with the romance. However, the romance did feel rushed because of it’s length which is unfortunate because it does have potential to be a really good solid comedy/romance shoujo. Really good for a starter read.
