ANN Review: My Girlfriend’s A Geek (Vol. 01)

ANN Review: My Girlfriend's a Geek (Vol. 01)

Yesterday my review of Yen Press’s My Girlfriend’s a Geek (Vol. 01) was posted over at AnimeNewsNetwork. I’m glad to see readers curious about checking out the series in the comments and some already-fans.

This was a series I’d been really eager to read since Yen Press announced it. A series about a guy dealing with his girlfriend’s obsession with yaoi sounded like it could be ripe with great humour potential if handled correctly. Well the series definitely isn’t disappointing – I adored the first volume. I laughed out loud a couple times and found the romantic element of the series really endearing, at least from the angle of the male lead. There isn’t much in the way of romance coming from the girl unless you count her endless fantasies about boys loving other boys.

A shout-out thanks to my local comic store Strange Adventures for again providing me with all the best goodies to purchase each Wednesday :)

      While I do think boys' love fans will find the series entertaining, I am curious how those outside the fandom would find it. I hope you'll come back and share your thoughts once you get a chance to check it out!

    I’m a little put off by the title change (…”geek” isn’t really a good substitute for fujoshi) but I still want to buy the book.

    Where can I read this?!

    • It's still a fairly recent book so many bookstores that carry a decent selection of manga would likely have it, or be able to order it in for you. Some public libraries carry them as well, plus the dozens of places online to purchase ^^
