Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches is primarily a comedy, and is a breath of fresh air for someone who doesn't particularly like how manga relationships tend to either be super repressed or illegal (not so into people crushing on their little sisters; and no, a "first cousin raised as my sister" doesn't make it better). It has harem aspects (in that a number of people are attracted to the main character), but despite all the kissing the love story is pretty stably focused on the main character and his love interest. Highly recommended.
The main story has to dow with some body swapping. As far as stories like this go, I actually found it pretty entertaining. The main cast is relatively small at this point, so the few cast members that are present are given some time to breathe and grow a little. It helps a lot. The manga-ka takes her time developing things, and revealing what is going on. There is also a heavy focus on comedy. Most of it is effective, and the general tone of the book is pretty up beat and easy. There is some mild fan service in this volume, but most of it is used for comedic effect.
The art is attractive and expressive. Not just in the facial features, but in the whole characters' body. This is key to helping keep the reader clued in to who is in whose body. All of the characters are distinct and easy to identify. There are not a ton of backgrounds, or background detail, but for a book that focuses more on characters talking, they aren't really missed.
In the end I would recommend Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches. It's fun, light and so far, pretty inoffensive. Give it a go. Who knows, you might like it.
