L・DK 1 (講談社コミックスフレンド B)L・DK 1 by 渡辺 あゆ
My rating: 3 of 5 stockings

In L<3DK we follow Aoi Nishimori a stubborn high school student who live by herself. We start the story some time after Aoi's best friend Moe's confection to Shuusei her feeling, and got rejected. Not soon after Aoi's new neighbour brings her a gift, which cliché enough is Shuusei. After a few mishaps he ends up having to stay with her till his apartment gets fixed.

It's average, there isn't anything different that says BAM! I'M AWESOME AND UNIQUE! Within the first volume their love is obviously applied, without any real barriers. There's always the sense of normal girl dating school hottie, and the bullying that comes with it. Something that bugs me a little is how easily Moe gives up on Shuusei (you can tell it hurt her to do so), but I'd like to see more of Moe's thoughts on this. Also most manga's take several volumes to get to were Aoi and Shuusei got in the laps of 176 pages. The art is okay, but not great.

The only reason I'm giving this book 3 stockings, is for it's potential and not of it's current contents. Considering it starts so cliché it's actually has potential to become a beautiful story.
