Our heroine, whose name no one in school can remember, can’t decide what’s weirder—that the most popular guy in school, Koga-kun, wants to be her friend . . . or that he insists he’s an alien. But one thing’s for sure—he knows her name, and doesn’t seem ready to let her go through high school anonymous!

Imagine a girl whose name no one—other than the most popular guy in school—remembers. Now, wouldn’t it be even more peculiar if the only guy knowing her name had a sudden—out of this world—change in his personality that only said girl notices?

With quite an intriguing premise and a cute artwork, Nighttime for Just Us Two warms your heart from the very beginning. It’s impossible not to feel for both our heroine and the alien (temporarily?) inhabiting Koga-kun’s body, they are clearly destined to get close. It doesn’t matter if our heroine doesn’t get why he craves her friendship so desperately, he is determined to be her friend. Just look at the spark in his whole body eyes . . . how can you refuse him? Maybe out of loneliness—although she claims to be good in her own world—but soon a quirky and adorable friendship blossoms. So, between funny scenes and embarrassing moments, readers get the best enjoyment. Beware, though, Koga-kun (the human) may not be happy with what is going on . . .

An original and enjoyable first volume that also shows how awkward and difficult socialising can be for some people. I believe this is a manga that could easily become one to cherish, just like the friendship between the two lovely characters.

  1. Aw this sounds really good. I like th sound of them getting together… but yes how will Koga-Kun feel afterward? I wonder if he is falling for her as well…?? :):)
