As much as I love stories with dark concepts and questionable morality, sometimes its nice to kick back with a cute manga about roommates getting to know each other.
When our protagonist’s parents move away for work, Usa moves into a new place. Lucky for him, his crush Ritsu lives there too, unfortunately, a group of unusual characters call that place home as well.
Usa is your standard slice of life protag. He is the straight-man of the group and while likeable, is a bit on the plain side. In fairness, there is plenty of chapters left so he might get more development as the story continues.
The rest of the residents include the introverted bookworm and Usa’s crush Ritsu, his perverted roommate Shirosaki, the drunk bitter single Mayumi and the happy-go-lucky Sayaka. I have to say, so far my favourite character is the elderly landlord Sumiko.
I found out after I started reading this series, but apparently, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou got adapted into an anime called The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior.
At the time of writing, I haven’t watched the anime in question but since I’m enjoying the manga I might check it out further down the line.
As is the case with good slice of life stories, the cast plays off each other wonderfully and each character is likeable in their own way. On top of that, the art is really cute, which always helps.
If you are looking for a cute slice of life story to read, may I suggest Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou for your consideration? With a lot of heart and quite a few laughs, I’m sure you will have fun with this manga
