Discover the greatness that is this classic romance manga with gorgeous Bishonen, heart wrenching romance and a short but enjoyable story about a girl and her android.
It’s not about the length of your manga, its how you use it.
Absolute Boyfriend (or Zettai Kareshi in the Nipponese dialect of Engrish) is one of those quick and enjoyable manga you read when you wan’t to try something new. With a quick but great start and a beautiful ending, we have here one of the best gateway manga into the realms of Shojo and Bishonen. It doesn’t drag out too long and it gives you a nice taster of the hidden appeal that Shojo manga has to offer. With great romance and fantastic character chemistry you’ll find yourself getting surprisingly drawn into this bishonen fantasy world. Whether you want a quick manga with some great eye candy, touching romance and lighthearted comedy make sure to check the manga out. If you’ve ever wanted to try out this genre and need something quick and easy to get your feet wet, this is the manga for you. With a 6 Volume / 36 chapter length you’ll be able to knock this out easily within the week, so why not try it out. Yuu Watase is an amazing mangaka with great art and many outstanding works that are easy to transition into that will leave a lasting impression for years to come. However, she does have her mediocre works here and there, and sadly for me that includes Absolute Boyfriend as it the depth and ending was a bit off .. sorry “(ﾉ”_ _)ﾉ””” . This is mostly forgivable and but I still did find Absolute Boyfriend to be kinda average as there is so much better competition around it and I’m not really the target audience. But despite this I still had a fun time, don’t forget try out the manga this week and see if this simple love triangle will brighten your day.
