Inset: “If you read this, you’ll be able to get a 3-D girlfriend!? A “how to” comic!”

Just recently I’ve been reading up on manga titles that catch my attention, not to mention stories that deal with repeatable timelines (I’m looking at you, Steins;Gate!). With my unending hunger for time travel-esque plotlines, I arrived at Boku to Kanojo no Renai Mokuroku‘s doorstep.

Full Title: Boku to Kanojo no Renai Mokuroku
Full Kanji Title: ボクとカノジョの恋愛目録
Translated Title: My Passion Catalog and Hers (?)
Mangaka: Sukaji (Ebiten)
Artist: Sakura
Status: Finished
Read Online: Mangafox, Mangahere, Mangareader, Batoto, Kissmanga
The Good: Awesome Art, Cute And Lovely Characters.
The Bad: Dialogue Flow is very abrupt, and it jumps around a lot.
Should you read it? Definitely.

Synopsis

Mizuhara Ritsu loves both the 2D beauties of eroge and elementary school students. Also, his friend Bungo is jealous of how he seems to be surrounded by cute girls–there’s his little sister Miri, his tsundere childhood friend Akari, and kuudere Hatori.

One day, Bungo tells Ritsu about an anonymous blogger who writes about the future, and whose vague online self-description seems to match Ritsu. While initially assuming it to be a prank, Ritsu ends up letting his actions be guided by the blog’s horoscope-like hints for the upcoming day…

The story is awesome…

..ly wonderful and crazy. Dialog flow has a tendency to be fragmented. Yep, fragmented. I cannot count how many times I had to double back a chapter or two so I can get a grip on where the story is now, and where it is leading to.

Transition to new “routes” is also abrupt: you will find yourself surprised that the route has transitioned without any warning. But of course, clues are scattered about in the dialogue and in the plotline as to where the story is headed, and what is going to happen.

Art is Gorgeous

I have to admit, that art for the three (or five, including the older version of Miri) girls is really gorgeous. Wonderful. Really wonderful. And each girl exudes the personalities that they have, and each girl actually caters to one or two of uhh… your likes– tsundere, kuudere, and anything in between. Yep. Definitely something that caught my attention.

The World is but a Mystery

You will soon notice that the world in which the characters are living has a deep, dark secret that you feel like is poking you in the cheek, and that you cannot put your finger on it. It’s egging you, and the climax of the story will be revealed in such a way you will think that it…

That Ending Was Abrupt

Yep. It was totally abrupt, and you can feel that the author wanted to do something unique and unconventional. The way he wanted it to happen was supposed to be a big reveal, shock, and awe. You can. Feel that the ending wanted to surprise you, but the dialogue flow was too abrasive for you to feel the smoothness of the end. It is definitely something you’d really want to read, but it is also something you definitely repeat to understand. some people actually took to the forums to just ask what the heck was going on.

Overall, it was a solid story

It catered to different tastes, and it also gave you something to think about. It gives you the feeling of an intellectual challenge which may or may not get you in a debating feel with everyone else, and that it may or may not be the next Steins;Gate. But of course, that ending still needs some reworking, but all else this manga has something good to offer everyone.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
