It's easy to dive into ItaKiss and dismiss it as, "Just another shoujo manga with those same-old tired tropes, ditzy girl and aloof stud are at each other's throats and steadily fall in love," but given that most all other shoujo manga following these tropes have ItaKiss to THANK for those tropes, it's fun seeing how it all got started!
With three live-action dramas and an animated series, ItaKiss is quite popular and for good reason: the tropes work for it, and the characters (including the supporting cast) are all quirky enough to keep readers engaged and rooting for the pair to finally get together, and then to follow their ups and downs as they navigate a relationship.
The art's quite dated--but what can you expect from a series that got its start in the early 90s? Best to just roll with it and focus on the story.
Looking for some entertaining shoujo romance from the good ol' days? "Itazura na Kiss" is for you!
