Title: Perfect Girl Evolution (Yamatonadeshiko Shichiheng
jinx_you - October 10, 2008 06:42 AM (GMT)
Mangaka: Hayakawa Tomoko
Volume(s): 21 (ongoing)
Genre(s): Comedy, Drama, Harem, Romance, Shoujo
Summary: "It's a gorgeous, spacious mansion, and four handsome, fifteen-year-olds are allowed to live in it for free! There's only one condition—that within three years the guys must transform the owner's wallflower niece into a lady befitting the palace in which they all live! How hard can it be? Enter Sunako Nakahara, the agoraphobic, horror movie-loving, pockmark-faced, frizzy-haired, fashion-illiterate recluse who tends to break into explosive nosebleeds whenever she sees anyone attractive. This project is going to take more than our four heroes ever expected: it needs a miracle!"
To be honest, I wouldn't have picked this manga up to read if it hadn't been for all the comments I heard about. And being that must of them were good, I decided to go ahead and read it.. And boy am I glad I did. This has become one of my favorites for many reasons. The storyline is definitely interesting and that keeps me wondering what could possibly happen next. I love the characters and their interactions with one another (some of the scene between them are hilarious). And the artwork is fabulous (although I love the chibi Sunako Nakahara I wish she was drawn normal more often - but I guess that would defeat what's being aimed for). This is a pretty hilarious manga.. and how could it be when you have Sunako Nakahara as a main character who's an "agoraphobic, horror-movie-loving, pockmark-faced, frizzy-haired, fashion-illiterate recluse who tends to break into explosive nosebleeds whenever she sees anyone attractive." And then there's Morii a smooth talking playboy that's probably a daddy (lol), Kyohei who's has a bottomless pit for a stomach and a sometimes uncontrollable anger, Toyama who's as easily touched as he is scared, Oda a serious, sensitive type, and then Ms. Landlady (Sunako's aunt) who's a jet-setter and what I'd consider a fashion diva who just wants to see her niece as a lady, even if it means her 'tenants' suffering.

This manga is so funny! Specially Sunako with her obsession with dark stuff XD But lately the story has been dragging alot :frust there hasn't been any development with Kyohei and Sunako :cry or with Sunakos transformation into becoming a lady :bun I hope the main story picks up soon! :wish

Sunako-chan's love for gory and scary things makes me happy! At Last! not your average damsel in distress! yey!

This manga makes me laugh. As mentioned, its is already vol 21 and on-going, don't know when and how it will end. The anime was really short and it did not show if Sunako and Kyouhei will become couple or not.
bellebrunette - October 14, 2008 03:05 AM (GMT)
I love this manga, it is so randim. Half the time I'm like what-the where did that come from. So hope she ends up with Kyohei.

I feel that is a similarity between this series Wallflower and Host Club... =p well oblivious they are both the harem sort... well lets not go into depth there but I agree its been dragging on for so long, not that I am complaining or anything because its been dragged on in a very creative way, by that i mean in every volume something new about the characters are revealed.
I think the in the end they will get together but only in the implied manner simply because this seems like that sort or series (comedy) that always just touches on the topic =.= BUT i really hope I am wrong!!! I really would be disappointed if they left it with an open ended ending!
May be they're going to have something dramatic occur to her turning her into semi normal Lol
The blood spewing is funny but its almost becoming like Team Rocket from pokemon...

Ah... My lovely Yama Nade.
Honestly, when I first started reading this, it was my absolute NUMBER ONE favorite manga.
Now? I'm starting to get a bit disappointed, actually. I mean, honestly, don't you guys also get the impression that Hayakawa-sensei's just filling up the pages? What's happened in the past five or six volumes? Has there been any kind of development (relationship, psychological...)?
I don't know... I love Sunako, I love Kyohei, I love this manga, but... I'm getting a bit bored with it. I wish something would HAPPEN, for God's sake!

cutie_gal - October 16, 2008 12:39 AM (GMT)

Aniya - October 18, 2008 02:23 PM (GMT)
Ahhh..this manga is sooo funny...and has so hot bishies...is one of my favourite...i recomended it.
Sunako's personality, and how it kind of freaks the guys out, with the nosebleeds and the scary movies and the gloomy look- i like it. Also, does anyone know how many volumes this manga has in total?
virusreven - October 21, 2008 12:45 AM (GMT)
love it so funny.... want to know how it will end
cakie4me - October 21, 2008 02:33 AM (GMT)
It's sooooooo long; I wish the romance could be developed a little more :cry :grr
eliechan - October 21, 2008 03:52 AM (GMT)
I love how funny it is but it's kind of getting repetitive in the later volumes... but I love the artwork. it's pretty!
hamtj - October 27, 2008 05:31 AM (GMT)

It's the most funny manga (after Gravitation) that I'm read .

aznsleepyhead - November 1, 2008 06:08 PM (GMT)
i love this manga :yepyep sunako is unique she and kyohei seems like a unlikely couple tho cuz in some ways ways they differ too much sunako cant look him in the face without having a nosebleed
akirachan1 - November 1, 2008 06:42 PM (GMT)
It started really well but it is dragging a bit I kind of hope some development will happen soon.

karma1 - June 1, 2009 11:10 AM (GMT)
Absolutely one of the funniest mangas...hands down...lol
altho it is starting to drag jus'a lil bit...hope the relationship btwn sunako and kyouhei progresses faster (hope i gt the names right)lol...
Altho i think if and when she transforms it would be truly awesum...sumthing like royalty or sumthing lol
kakashi524 - June 1, 2009 11:38 AM (GMT)
I aggree, its taking too long to get somewhere, but still somewhat entertaining.
lilmunkie - June 1, 2009 01:07 PM (GMT)
man i love this manga! It's so random and cute
its just hilarious when sunako goes on her emo horror moods xD
sabi-chan - June 1, 2009 01:07 PM (GMT)
At first, I love it, it was so funny and cute at the same time. But I stopped reading because it was too long
aprilmoon21 - June 1, 2009 06:09 PM (GMT)
i really like it, but every once in a while i just wish that the characters would stop being stupid and realize it already!!! :p>< it's just sooo frustrating sometimes :btwitch
but i enjoy it a ton!
crystalrain - June 2, 2009 12:40 AM (GMT)
I like this story so much. But the romance is so weak.I kinda get bored when they started to go around and around with little romance....
axlearn - June 2, 2009 11:40 PM (GMT)
i read the manga first and i really loved it, i was expecting a lot from the anime, but the graphics weren't that good, so i prefer the manga. :bhi
sirk - June 9, 2009 04:58 AM (GMT)
i bought this manga on a whim b/c it was on sale at a thai bookstore in thaitown a few years ago. the cover didn't seem like anything too interesting so i think it was the sale that got me but am i so glad i bought it. this is on my top 10 fav manga list. it is HILARIOUS. sonako and her trials. it's ridiculous but perfect. the anime is great too.
hydelove - June 10, 2009 08:45 PM (GMT)
I first starting reading this manga simply because i thought the art style was really nice and now i really like it. its really funny but the only thing is that sometimes it drags...i want to see some romantic progress, gosh dang it! heh :p><
lireah - June 12, 2009 09:22 PM (GMT)
i really do like this story because of the characters and the laughter, but my issue is that it really is taking a long time to finish. hopefully, it would wrap up soon.
silvy6 - June 17, 2009 03:05 AM (GMT)
omg this is one of my fav. mangas! its sooo cute/funny/interesting/ and HOT! <3 sunako in chibi form and reg form haha. i hope she ends up with with one of them~
Aurora - June 21, 2009 12:55 AM (GMT)
Am I the only one who thinks the series is dragging on for too long? I mean I like the manga, but jeeze. Can the mangaka make it last any longer? It's so obvious she will end up with Kyohei. It's starting to annoy me how it's been 92 chapters and barley any plot development.
storm91 - June 22, 2009 11:16 AM (GMT)
woaww xD I love it sooo much xD hehuhei e koy :bkiss and I love sunako cuz she is sooo coool xD but I want chapters with more love between kyouhei and sunako xD cuz I know they love each other and want to see more romantic moment hehehe xDxD
yayz - July 2, 2009 11:30 AM (GMT)
I love this manga! The story is sooooo funny and silly! The characters are also super crazy! I hope Sunako and Kyouhei will be a couple int the end!
miyu_sorrow - August 25, 2009 04:15 PM (GMT)
My all time favorite!!! :bkyaa
It's just so crazy, hilarious and... and, Buaahahhaa!! Chibi drawings make me lack of oxygen XDDDD I love Sunako, she's my heroine!!! ^.^
|Am I the only one who thinks the series is dragging on for too long?|
I really don't mind that the series are so long... like, at all!!! Coz it's more fun for me, I don't want it to end. You must agree, when a good book ends you can't help but feel angry coz it ended! I scream in my head "I want more!!! >.<"... So the longer - the better, especially with the way Hayakawa draws - I will never get bored :bpeace
