Mizutama Honey Boy manga review

Rating:

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Honestly, I as man when the first time I read Mizutama Honey Boy, what I feel was shivering seeing the behaviour and the girly personality of the heroine Fuji Shirou 😂. Note that Mizutama Honey Boy is labelled as Shoujou, so the main character here is the girl Sengoku Mei so Fuji Shirou is the heroine here.

But slowly I just took the girly personality of Fuji in this story is only as the main component that formed the comedy element in this manga story. What made it laughable for me is how Sengoku or the people arounds made their face when Fuji show his girly act or when he is crosdressing, their expression then turned out to be somewhat gloomy or feel really sorry for what they have seen in front of their eyes 😂.

The art in this manga is also quite good. After I finished reading Mizuta Honey Boy and the re-read the chapter 1, the art style is keep consistent along the story. Because I have read some manga (especially Webtoon) where the first and the last chapter could have a drastically change in the art style.

Finally Fuji found some(one/thing ?) that is cuter, more athletic, and smarter than him, LOL 😂.

Overall, Mizutama Honey Boy manga is entertaining with heavy comedy elements throughout the story. Although being labelled as Shoujou, but I as a real man 😂 quite enjoying the story plots because the story also heavily focused on the heroine here, Fuji Shirou.
