The manga is frustrating to read, but it does live up to its name so I can’t fault it. It’s annoying, but it’s still so much fun to read. I could go on a rant, because the last few chapters of this manga….I was ready to give a good punch to the two main characters, but after I calmed down I realized that from the very beginning they weren’t your typical shoujo characters. Hatori, isn’t a heroine. She’s a failure, in terms of shoujo.
Once I remembered that, I realized that the ending was perfect for this series. It’s still incredibly annoying, because the two main characters are insufferable and they do kind of deserve a kick and a punch, but for the most part I enjoyed the series. Finding out that a movie is coming out is actually kind of exciting. Judging from what I saw from this one, it does seem to cover quite a bit from the manga, so hopefully it doesn’t feel too rushed.
Heroine Shikkaku (Failure of a Heroine) is set to release on September 19, 2015.
