Apparently it looks like a shojo manga, but it use the tropes to completely change the story, it show what it would be for an asexual to live in a shojo manga where the female character always only cares about boys.

 

I must say I really really don't like manga as a medium, not sure I will try it too deeply. But it makes me curious, is there a list about movie/comics/tv show that depict asexuality? I know Todd from Bojack, of course, and Sheldon from TBBT, also they betrayed the character in the end. Anything else note worthy?

Looks pretty good to me! Thanks for sharing. I was searching for quite a while but it's really hard to find any ace manga out there :)

The Dryad

Kiryuu-sensei wa Renai ga Wakaranai 

Is the title in case someone else doesn't trust links like me.

 

It sounds sort of interesting, but I'm probably not going to get into the series because I prefer mahou shoujo in general, and the only slice of life I like is Skip Beat! because Kyoko's supernatural abilities are basically something straight out of mahou shoujo anyways.

Thanks for sharing! I started reading the manga and it's so relatable, full of ace and aro moments. :D

Glad you enjoyed it. A friend told me about it when I was looking for some Ace/Aro representation. According to him there's a lot of manga male characters who do not show interest in women, but they're always fat/skinny nerds with glasses who watch too much porn...

 

Seriously, no one has a recommendation for a graphic novel, a tv show or a movie where the character is explicitly ace? Is the representation that bad?

I love manga, so I read all the chapters that are out now. I like the premise and the main character, but I admit I'm leery. Both of the guys seem like creeps, so if she ends up with either of them I'll be pretty disappointed.
