Review: The Wallflower Yamatonadeshiko Shichihenge

The Wallflower 1: Yamatonadeshiko Shichihenge


It's a gorgeous, spacious mansion, and four handsome, fifteen-year-old friends are allowed to live in it for free! There's only one condition-that within three years the guys must transform the owner's wallflower niece into a lady befitting the palace in which they all live! How hard can it be?

Enter Sunako Nakahara, the agoraphobic, horror-movie-loving, pockmark-faced, frizzy-haired, fashion-illiterate recluse who tends to break into explosive nosebleeds whenever she sees anyone attractive. This project is going to take more than our four heroes ever expected: it needs a miracle!


This manga is CUTE.. haha

Wallflower manga Review

"Story & Playability"
Wallflower also known as Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge has a story line that is not something too extrodinaire but something that assumes and an everyday life but with a twist to it. At first when Kyohei and Sunako meets each other (along with Takenaga, Yukinojo and Ranmaru) for the very first time they seem totally incompatable but gradually as episodes come and go they seem closer to each other than any other pairings in the manga. When the two first meet, they are incontrolable and ungiving but bit by bit, Sunako softens up to Kyohei at lets him enter her space as they have similar likings such as horror movies anc ecetera but both are unknown to their similarities.
Occasionally, Takenaga and Noi (A girl who likes Takenaga) get into a few scraps themselves when Noi finds trouble confessing her feelings to Takenaga. Likewise for Takenaga, he too finds it hard to confess and sometimes Kyohei likes to get in the way to annoy Noi.
Yukinojo being a scaredy-cat is quite fearfull of Sunako but steps up when a friend is in need.
Ranmaru, the play boy enjoys dating married women and has a moral not many like. But when his eyes are set on a girl, his love for her is complicated and he himself does not know but it never falters.
The main storyline is full of suspense and emotion espically the antics of Kyohei and Sunako. Hilarious beyond words.
Overall, I think the storyline and the characters are fantastic. It keeps you stuck to reading the same page over and over again. Not too magicial but a manga with loads of fun, laughter, peace and joy.

The art is one thing i love. The hairstyles have been modelled for which makes the hairstyle really amazing.
The drawing is quite realistic espically the eyes, hairstyles and poses. The chibi parts are rather cute, not too much details but really cute and original. I like the realistic touch of the drawing finding easier to daydream about how the characters would look like in real life. Since there are loads of Chibi Sunakos, i look forward to the parts when Sunako is drawn in human like form. Most of the times protecting someone or with Kyohei. The hairstyles are similar yet different but i find it rather easier to differ character from character as each has their own individual styles which is what i like about the manga other than the storyline and the character design. The life-likeness of the characters make the story really enjoyable to read. The parts where the characters are supposed to animate seems as if the pictures are really moving the way that Tomoko has drawn them. The art quality has stunned me speechless.


Gomen! There is no sound in manga only dialogues ^^

The dialogue between the characters are very natural as if a human were speaking except its on paper. Each has their own unique style in their speech. You can differ them easily by their speech as each has their own unique individual dialogue. The genre of the manga matches the dialogue really well. Its not in poetry but in simple yet suspense dialogue which makes the manga even more intresting to read.

There are loads of humour in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Wallflower) as they get into quite alot of scraps and terribly humourous situations. The concept of it being an everyday life manga is very good as it does not exaggerate but has a very adventours touch to it. The main storyline is full of suspense and emotion. I find it a very enjoyable manga and will never regret reading it. The presentation all in all is very good and worth reading. The storyline, art and the dialogue is very good and very like-like.
