Volume 1 Summary (via NetGalley):
Nima Momosato is jinxed. Whenever she has a crush on someone, they end up finding love elsewhere right in front of her eyes. She ends up joining a slightly weird club that observes and studies other people’s love lives and relationships. Really, that’s what they do! Enjoy this new type of romance comedy in which love never works out!


My Review:
Heart Break Club is a romantic comedy that I can see myself really getting into. The premise is certainly different (and unique) from the usual rom-coms I read and watch, but there was something about this story that intrigued me. It’s an unusual story and I think that’s why I like it so much.

All of the characters are so endearing and lively in their own way. Nima Momosato (the MC) you can’t help but root for. Yoriko Mitoya is an awkward nerdy to love (and also root for). Takeshi Okinoshima is kind, caring and cute. And Ryo Hikawa is an anime fan after me own heart.

This was a great opening to an entertaining story. I’m really interested in seeing where this story goes in the next volume. I’ll have to add this series to my TBR for sure.
