What is it?
Jitsu wa Watashi wa... (The Truth is I am ....) is a romance comedy manga by MASUDA Eiji with monstergirls.
There are currently around 120 chapters released and around 90 translated (17/09)
It was adapted into an anime from studio TMS Entertainment.



Plot

Kuromine Asahi is like an open book. He can't hide his feelings and isn't capable of telling lies. Even his old crush, class representative Aizawa Nagisa, could easily tell the feelings he had for her and rejected him only a few seconds before he could confess to her.
A few months later his friends motivate him to confess to his new crush, the mysterious Shiragami Youko. Just when he was about to enter the classroom and tell her he finds out that she is actually a vampire who came to school under the condition not to show anyone her true identity.

The plot sounded a bit generic at first, but I do like the art style it has, especially the detailed backgrounds and facial expressions. The fact I can also binge read a lot of chapters at once is definitely a plus, too.

it is, to be honest. what makes it worth reading are the characters and the humour.

I read the manga and it's hilarious but idk if the anime is worth watching. Great recommendation though. ;)

if you look at the anime as some sort of treat next to the manga its good but objectively its really average.
the order of events is different and the pacing overall is out of place. but it can be nice to watch if you dont think too much about it.

>tfw mistook it for Jinrui Suitai by the title for some reason

I've seen this title on anime updates quite a lot recently, I'll be giving the manga a shot. Thanks for the recommendation!

Reading it now, the beginning is very Karin-esque.
