Tamon’s B-Side, Vol. 1

by Yuki Shiwasu

A young woman, Utage Kinoshita, who loves the popular boy band F/ACE, has a job as a house cleaner. When she covers for a colleague who calls out, she discovers the assignment is for her favorite member of F/ACE, Tamon Fukuhara. However, Tamon’s charming, bad boy persona is fake and the poor guy is riddled with imposter syndrome and anxiety.

A lot of manga feature teenagers as the main characters; that’s the case with all of the manga I read recently. However, this one takes the characters to a hyperbolic level and I probably would have enjoyed this more if I were either younger (because I enjoyed similar manga like this in tone when I read a lot of them in high school) and/or related more to fan culture. I am a hater at heart and I can’t think of any piece of media or celebrity that I’m necessarily ride or die for.

I didn’t last very long with this one. Both Utage and Tamon are too exaggerated for me with Utage proclaiming that she wants to “live in Tamon’s mole” and Tamon frequently prostrating himself in front of Utage and weeping that he isn’t worthy of a fan like her.

I’m also not interested in celebrity romances as a whole. To be honest, that sort of relationship sounds exhausting. This one was definitely a mismatch, with an emphasis on “it’s not you, it’s me.”
