Kiss Him Not Me Manga Highlights

Honestly, I feel. Sleeping so peacefully, a semi-romantic moment. And then it's ruined because she jumps up and screams something very weeaboo-like. The art style for the series though, in the comedic relief sections, is just beautiful. Igarashi is still startled despite knowing her for so long. Generally, when you know an otaku of Kae's caliber for a long period of time, you get used to random outbursts and fangirl moments. 

Gotta love that Dragon Ball Z reference man. Collect all of the Dragon Balls to revive Goku again. Seriously though, Goku has died so many time, but he just keeps coming back. From what I've been watching every now and then, his ghost or spirit is just following his family and friends around, but instead of enjoying his final moments with them he goes to a fighting tournament. What a jerk. But yes, Dragon Balls have kept Goku semi-alive for eons, perhaps they'll save Senpai. 

Your dear family member is gravely ill and in a hospital, and when you return from a phone call you see one of their friends forming a magic circle around their bed with a crazed expression on their face. The detail and effort Kae put into making the circle is admirable, she put everything she had into her sorcery. 

And it's a Fullmetal Alchemist reference. One of the best things about this series is the fact that it's so relatable, as well as it's like it's set in our world. There's references that we as readers can recognize, as well as the fact that it's about an Otaku. While not all of the readers have their own harem, we're all anime fans, so it's interesting to read a manga about someone who is pretty similar to us. 

A lot of people say that people in a coma can hear you, I wonder how much truth there is to that? It's pretty great though, Kae is just saying all of this crazy stuff, and Mutsumi, who's in a coma and doesn't understand anything that's going on, can only begin to imagine what on earth it means.  If I heard someone talking about transmutation, I would probably be terrified.
