Let's Fall in Love is a manga published by Monthly Girls' Romance. It is Yumeno Sakiko's bestselling manga, featuring Saburou Suzuki, Mamiko, Oze and Waka.

Manga Edit

The plot mostly consists of Mamiko, an average girl, trying to win the popular Suzuki's affections as she's in love with him. It also features the relationship between two of its supporting characters, Oze and Waka.

According to the Monthly Girls' Romance editing staff, the story features no exceptional elements, a flat main character, and is described to be a very "typical shoujo manga". Despite this description, the manga sells fairly well, reaching at least 10 volumes so far. It's most popular demographic is among middle school girls, such as Yumeko Nozaki and Rei Kashima , but it does not sell well among males because of its art style.

Author Edit

Umetarou Nozaki, penname Yumeno Sakiko, is the author of Let's Fall in Love. He got into the Shoujo genre via his little sister, Yumeko Nozaki,[1] and eventually fell into the hobby of drawing manga. [2]

Though Umetarou Nozaki is a 6-foot high school male, he tries to preserve the image of Yumeno Sakiko, a cute, female high school student. Yumeno Sakiko is known for her short pigtails, and fans believe that she is in possession of a pink, frilly handkerchief with heart patterns. She receives various fan-mails and fan-art from her readers.

After his debut, Nozaki decided to live alone to focus on his manga career during his high school years. Most of Yumeno's earlier works avoided the usage of backgrounds because he did not have a background artist at the time. Conceptualization for Let's Fall in Love started on his first year of high school.

'Let's Fall in Love' Assistants Edit

Mikoto Mikoshiba Edit

Mikoshiba is the first assistant that Nozaki recruited for the manga. The two met while Nozaki was looking for a character basis for the main heroine, Mamiko. He is in charge of all floral effects.

Masayuki Hori Edit

Hori is the second person recruited for the manga. He is in charge of the backgrounds and often stays at Nozaki's Apartment late at night to do work because of club activities. Hori receives manuscripts for the Drama Club in return. Nozaki himself is very incompetent in drawing backgrounds. He and Nozaki work together in gathering pictures for background references.

Chiyo Sakura Edit

Sakura is the third person recruited to assist with the manga, she is in charge of doing the beta. After her supposed 'confession', he had brought her to his apartment and asked her to do beta. Her skills were acknowledged by him when he had noticed a poster drawn by the Art Club. She is known to use traditional brushes instead of brush pens because she specializes in watercolor.

Hirotaka Wakamatsu Edit

Wakamatsu is the fourth person recruited for the manga. He used to be in charge of erasing, but was promoted to screentone work. When he had been speaking to Nozaki about his insomnia, Nozaki asked if he wanted to come over to his house and talk about it. Wakamatsu asked if they'd play games together but Nozaki said that they were going to be working on his manga.

Mitsuya Maeno Edit

Maeno was the previous editor-in-chief for the manga.

Ken Miyamae Edit

Ken is the current editor-in-chief for the manga. They had met when Nozaki made a complaint, saying Maeno was unreliable and took extremely long to reply to his messages. Nozaki was extremely wary of Ken when they had first met until Ken had spoken about his manga, knowing all of the characters including the minor ones which allowed him to earn Nozaki's trust.
