No Longer Heroine – Manga Review


Every girl dreams of starring in her own love story. Hatori also firmly believed that one day she would marry her childhood friend, Rita—but things are never that simple! The agony of a heartbroken young maiden is laid bare in this uproarious comedy! 


This was such a fun read. I decided to take a chance and start up a new series, while waiting for others to update, and I was happily surprised. The artwork is fantastic. I love that the lead, Hatori’s hairstyles and accessories change throughout. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read something where this happens. I also appreciate how hilarious and flawed she is, and that the story occasionally breaks the forth wall. Highly recommend for those who enjoy shojo with comedic elements, and flawed characters.

Also, I love how the artist, Momoko Koda, went and made the background characters look like villains in a shonen manga. That was honestly, fantastic. There are so many different, playful elements to this manga that I think many readers can appreciate.


Rating: 5 out of 5.
