|Good Morning Call
|Yoshikawa Nao has
convinced her mother to let her live alone in her own
apartment (thus avoiding a move which would take her away
from her friends), despite being a third year middle
school student. She gets to her new apartment and is
almost kicked out by a boy who claims the apartment is
his. After some arguing, they visit the landlord who
explains that the apartment costs $1500 a month instead
of $800, which the two were told. During this discussion,
Nao suddenly recognizes the boy as Uehara Hisashi, a
rather popular guy at school. Long story short, they
decide to live together since both don't want to go back
to the parents and they can't afford another place.
Overall, there is nothing original about this story. It is a typical shoujo where a cheery girl works her way into the heart of a rather emotionless guy. All the main characters get paired up along the way and Nao has to overcome rivals to be first in Uehara's heart. Do to the cliché-ness, I really have no urge to get more of this series. And it goes to show that you shouldn't believe everything in a review since I got four volumes of this series because of a good review article. It was overrated in my opinion.
