Kiryu Shogo: なにこのほわほわした感じ Nani kono howa howa shita
kanji (What’s with this warm and snuggly atmosphere…)

ハンバーグ (hanbaagu): Katakana of hamburger. Usually refers to just the patty while バーガー (baagaa) refers to the burger with bun. (Don’t ask me why…)
ほわほわ (howa howa): similar to fuwa fuwa and honwaka. To mean warm, snuggly and fluffy.
早起き (hayaoki): Early rising. A compound word of 早い (hayai; fast, early) and 起きる (okiru; to wake up)

It doesn’t take a genius to guess that I got interested in this manga series because of Yamazaki Kento. He plays the role of Hase Yuki (male lead) in the live-action movie! I was quite surprised that this is a four-panel manga. Somehow I had the impression that a four-panel manga can be a little restrictive, but it has proved me wrong. I’m actually enjoying the manga and the story is not compromised in any way.

The manga series is also adapted into an anime series. Although the story is a lot more condensed as compared to the manga series, it’s entertaining and worth a watch!

Last but not least, I hope the movie gets screened in Singapore! *cross fingers*
