I’m not generally a romance fan, but it works so well in the context of the comic. Recommended visual reading for the new and familiar, and a wonderful one of the comics medium.

A refreshing manga that focuses on the idea of soulmates. College sophomore Yuuki believes in destiny and everything that comes with it. After hitting a dry spell with dating, she agrees to go clubbing with her friend. Her bestie hits it off great with a guy, but his scary friend comes across as a jerk to Yuuki. But you know what they say about first impressions. Maybe there's more to the story.

A fun romp with an unexpected love triangle thrown in. It's cute and addicting, especially for those readers who love a good romance.

I love the name of this and the art was aesthetically pleasing. I also enjoyed the storyline a lot and found it to be pleasantly different than other manga I have read.

Thank you NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

In general, I think this book deserves 3,5/5 stars. The romance is cute, the plot twists are seriously unexpected and exciting, but the main character, Yuuki, feels a little stereotyped. For being a 20 years old woman, she still acts like a teenager, and I'm sorry but I've read/seen too many similar characters to Yuuki to be interest in one more. The strong point of this manga are the love interests and the "mystery" that surrounds their actions. Are they actually telling the truth? Are they lying? What is going on? That was the only thing that kept me reading.
I'm not sure I'll try the next volume, but I would still recommend it to someone who's lookig for some quick-paced story.

Unfortunately, this book wasn't for me and I decided to DNF (did not finish) it soon after starting it.

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did! I loved the art style and really felt like the characters were fun to follow and read about. I think this was a well rounded first volume and I’ll definitely be getting volume 2!

Really enjoy this one!! Wasn't expecting at first but it's quite good, the drawing is beatiful and the story is quite interesting too.

Overall it is a nice first volume and I want to keep reading this author story.

How I met my Soulmate is an adorable manga about relationships and whether the destined one is out there for us all. Yuuki is a relatable character and I can't wait to see what happens next.

I loved Anashin's previous series (Waiting for Spring), so I had great hopes for this manga, and I was definitely not disappointed! There's more to every character, and they all have interesting personalities and dynamics between them.
I loved that there were a couple of colouring pages too!

My thanks to NetGalley and Kodansha Comics for an eARC of this to read and review.

Ok, this book fell prey to the mini-book slump I was in. I just didn't have any connection whatsoever to the MC h. She was looking for her soulmate, but had THREE guys panting after her and was just oblivious to it all and she was so annoying, I don't see how ANY of them would be interested in her quite frankly. I guess her milkshake was magical and brought all the boys to the yard. Lucky her.

The artwork was pretty and if I hadn't been in a book slump, I'm sure I would have enjoyed this one better.

2, it just didn't do anything for me but I didn't hate it, stars.

Wow. It's been such a long time since I got to read a romance manga set in college that doesn't irk me. I really enjoyed Yuuki as a character, she's refreshing in the sense that she is a normal girl. She's not a social butterfly, but she's also not timid to the point she doesn't socialize with other people. Also she can read context clues and knows when a guy is being flirty or crossing boundaries...I swear to god the amount of dense women in romance mangas is INSANE. Also I really love her for being an introvert + looking for love + trying her best because YES SAME. I'm also a college student just trying my best so she's my twin at this point. Also I'm still wary of Seno...will not reveal anything spoiler-y but I think this might be a love triangle (team Iori all the way. Full stop.).

Many thanks to Kodansha Comics and Netgalley for the e-ARC!

This was cute, although missing something. It's a slow start to a manga but I might try the next one to see if it picks up

Thanks so much NetGalley and Kodansha Comics for this arc!

5/5 stars!

This was such a sweet and quick read! I really enjoyed this love story from start to finish - but who's love story is it?! What will Yuuki say to Seno?! What about Iori?! I love Iori we need more Iori's in the world 🥹 I can't wait for the second volume!!!

Probably not the manga for me. The bland and lonely main character can't even come up with anything that she wants in a "soulmate" other than they be a soulmate? This feels like a trainwreck ready to happen.

How I Met My Soulmate is a lovely college-aged romance following Yuuki, a university student from the countryside with a dream of finding her soulmate. She meets Iori, an intimidating and handsome dental student, in a club. After hearing about Yuuki's dream, he becomes determined to help her find her perfect match.

The art is soft and sweet, reminding me of shoujo manga I read when I was young, and the characters are all unique with their own personal motivations. I’m definitely invested in Yuuki’s pursuit of love and will be picking up volume 2.

I really enjoyed this! I didn't expect to like it that much to be honest but it was really good. The fmc is relatable and the art is pretty. Love triangles are not my thing but I'm still curious about how things will go.

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Yuki is a lonely college student who decides that she finally want to find her soulmate. While she goes out to a bar with her friend she meets a guy, who wants to help her find her soulmate.This was super cute, i really liked that this is set in college and not highschool. The main character was super relatable, i will definitely read the next volume.
