Manga-Mania May: Onidere.

Tadashi is not what many would consider a very masculine high-school student. He is the member of the schools handicraft club, and loves knitting more than anything else. That is, besides his girlfriend Saya.But Tadashi and Saya's relationship has a problem: Saya loves Tadashi very much, but she is a gang-leader, and is known as a very brutal young woman. She believes that her reputation would be destroyed if anyone found out about the two of them, and has sworn to commit harakiri, if they are exposed. So Tadashi and Saya must be discreet about their romance.
Easier said than done.
You thought Love Hina was weird? Wait till you get a load of this!
The humor is for the most slapstick, but it's well-working slapstick. Sure, sometimes it gets a little bit old, but for the most, it's pretty funny.The most of the characters are pretty two-dimensional, but since many of them are mainly used for slapstick, then this is understandable. That would be like demanding character development from Daffy Duck.
Tadashi and Saya are adorable together. Whenever they are alone, Saya put aside her killing-machine attitude, and melts as butter. She allows herself to be vulnerable with him, hell even shy. She sometimes even faint of happiness by just being with him(I think we can all understand why she want to keep this secret).This series can be a little boring if you read too much on just one day, so pick a chapter now and then, and that way keep having fun with it. I'm not gonna lie and say it's brilliant, but it's enjoyable.
One down, 14 to go.
I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.
