High schooler Anzu Hoshino has a great life. Every day she plays video games, pigs out on snacks, and pets her beloved cat. But this blissful existence is turned into a confusing mess when a magical creature transports her to an altered reality bereft of her favorite things. Now she’s stuck with hot guys instead! How can she possibly survive in such an awful world?!
Anzu must play along in this altered reality before she can return to her normal life, so she begrudgingly makes friends with Tsukasa Kazuki. He unfortunately happens to be one of the hottest and most popular guys at school, and what’s worse, she realizes that he might not even be that bad of a person!

Anzu Hoshino has no interest in romance. A young high schooler, she just wants to live her life surrounded by the good stuff: video games, chocolate, and her cat. However, through a series a events, Anzu finds herself thrusted into the middle of a Shoujo Manga! Suddenly her reality is completely altered. She has no games, snacks, and her parents moved out, taking her beloved cat with them!
Struggling with a magical imp that pushes good looking teenage boys on her, Anzu refuses to adjust to her new life. It's bad enough that she can't game anymore, but now the imp is throwing romance at her too? This is indeed not her dream, but someone else's! She meeting Tsukasa Kazuki, a boy who (through a series of magical unfortunate events) ends up living with her. As Anzu dodges the magical romantic plans, she starts to realize that maybe having Tsukasa around isn't all that bad?
This is the first volume of the series. The art is beautifully illustrated, and I love that it is in color! The story itself is so funny, I love that our main character is doing everything she possibly can to get away from falling in love. It's definitely a different experience compared to other Shoujo manga, and I highly recommend this fun read!
Absolutely hilarious. A fresh read for people tired of classic shojo manga tropes. More comedic than sweet with high re-readability value.
Loved this manga! Such a fun take on the traditional shojo manga. I was laughing so much as it made fun of all the usual stereotypes. I can’t wait to read the next volume! Thanks NetGalley and VIZ media for the advanced readers copy, will definitely be recommending this.
