Shizuku is considered cold and blunt. Haru is a naive boy who wishes to make friends. But, he is socially awkward and ends up becoming a trouble maker. There are a few important characters whose stories grow as the story grows. Each and every character in this manga is unique, cute and amusing. Moreover, the main characters retain their personalities even at the end of the story. They hold onto their identities firmly which is quite fresh.
The art is sweet and cute. It goes well with the theme of the manga. Panels are less so reading is not laborious. The manga belongs to the slice of life genre. It flows slowly. But this pace suits the story. It allows the characters to develop gradually without rushing. The manga is a blend of romance and comedy.
I like the manga (My Little Monster) for its simplicity and comedy. So, this would be a great read for fans of a light and sweet romance.
