Season Finale: Comic Girls ‒ Episode 12

"As a fantastic coda to last week's episode, the final installment breaks away from the usual formula by focusing entirely on Kaos outside of the established group dynamic."

Kiss Him, Not Me BD/DVD

This fujoshi-driven romcom tries to roll with its premise in good fun, but its choices may be too short-sighted and mean-spirited to appeal to everyone. Rebecca Silverman gets into it. ― Kiss Him, Not Me, based on the manga of the same name by Junko, is a bit problematic at its core. Not only does it at first blush rely on the tired old trope of the girl losing weight and her glasses and suddenly bec...
