Sorry to get off on a little personal rant but this has been bugging be for a little while. I have to admit I can’t deny that most of what Spector is true.

mm, one of the reasons I like nobuta was because it didn’t end up like a romance like so many other stories. I don’t know why people always feel the need to pair off everyone in a series, so I’ts nice to see a story that focuses on friendship rather then that kinda sappy love you see in other dramas...

It's really based from "Yamato Nadeshiko shichi henge" ? I'm surprise cause it's really different, "Nobuta" is just inspired maybe, but it's all. I love a lot this manga !
