Manga Review:

I’ve read a lot of romance manga, and usually, they follow familiar tropes, often involving little lies that propel the main characters forward. However, in this particular manga, the romance unfolds at a better pace, allowing readers to fully immerse themselves in the characters’ interactions and learn new things about them. It’s refreshing to see a story take its time to develop the relationship rather than rushing into it. Here, the characters share genuine connections and feelings, which adds depth to the narrative. The pacing isn’t too slow but deliberate enough to ensure readers understand the characters’ motivations.

What I enjoy most about this manga is the adorable relationship between the main characters, reminiscent of the dynamic between a black cat and a golden retriever. The main female lead, embodying the traits of a golden retriever, is incredibly endearing and adds a delightful charm to the story. Her earnest efforts are evident, and as the male lead gradually begins to understand the nuances of love, their relationship blossoms beautifully.

There’s also a subtle shot of Cinderella woven into the storyline, particularly in the first volume, which adds to the overall charm of the manga. I’m up to date with the latest chapters, and I must say, this manga is an absolute delight to read. It’s so sweet and heartwarming that it leaves you feeling full of joy. As a hopeless romantic, it’s the perfect escape into a world of happiness and love. 

My Love Story with Yamada-kun at Lv999  – Why You Should Read This Manga?

This manga presents a delightful array of romance tropes skillfully woven together in a way that enhances the storytelling rather than overwhelming it. Readers will find joy in piecing together these tropes, as they add to the overall enjoyment of the narrative without becoming tangled or convoluted.
