Pretty Face

Pretty Face
Scanslated by Akatsuki-Manga
Length: 6 Volumes

Topic: Shonen, Romance, Ecchi, Comedy

Randoh Masashi is a skilled fighter who has a crush on one of his classmates, Kurumi Rina. Going home one day, his bus swerves off a mountain road, and he is presumed dead. He wakes up in the clinic of Dr. Manabe, who has taken the liberty of performing reconstructive surgery on Randoh to repair the damage from the accident. Of course, Dr. Manabe didn't know what Randoh looked like, so he used a picture in Randoh's pocket as reference. Kurumi Rina's picture. With a face identical to that of his crush, and abandoned by his family who has long believed their son to be dead, Randoh assumes the identity of Rina's sister Yuna, who disappeared a few years ago. Randoh must now avoid being revealed while playing the role of Rina's sister until his appearance can be restored and Rina reunited with the true Yuna.

Just a light fun manga that'll give you a lot of laughs. Art isn't bad, but isn't spectacular either. Some of the jokes can be a bit predictable though, but in the end, it makes for a good read. At the time of this review's writing, the main story has been completely scanslated, with just one bonus side story to go.

Rating: 7.0/10.0
