Le.Gardenie

Le.Gardenie... I'm pretty sure most of the girls know this comic as it was published in Gempak or Utopia I cant remember. The author is Ben. It's basically a story of midschoolers love affairs as the protagonist life is surrounded with beautiful girls and he being too greedy stand helpless as everything fall apart in front of him. ok I made that up because I hate the main character. It's basically called Le.Gardenie as all the characters are named based on fruits i.e Apple, Lemon, Kiwi, and Orange.

Since it is a product from Ben, the drawings are beautiful. i just love it and the setting is based on french remote town if im not mistaken. nevertheless, i dont like the storyline. the only reason i keep the comic is because of the artwork. the storyline is just...... i dont know.. should i say sickening? lol. basically I can only read one chapter at one time because i will feel really disgusted with the main character, orange. Ben managed to depict him as a greedy weak spineless coward person with no manliness at all. that is why i cant stand reading the story.

so yeah there are 4 volumes in total though the last part of the comic is done by someone else because Ben quit Gempak. so the storyline had a sudden change just like Fatal Chaos.
