Love*Com is one of the funniest shojo manga I’ve ever read. Aside from having great dialogue and lovable characters, one of my favorite aspects of the series was the use of facial expressions. Aya Nakahara draws some of the most unique and fun facial expressions I’ve ever seen, so I thought I’d share some examples.
Risa’s famous ‘crab-ugly’ expression:
Some people know how to put on graceful airs no matter what the circumstances. Risa is not one of those people:
Risa’s feeling a little Munch today:
That smile would get any man going Risa:
Don’t listen to him Risa. You look gorgeous:
I’m sensing Gone With the Wind:
There may be such a thing as ‘too happy:’
The last time I saw a face like this I was at the zoo:
Risa was so close to being a 70s shojo heroine. All she needed was the curly hair:
And that was Risa in all her candid glory! Beautiful, isn’t it?
