Sorta yeah. Except he has a personality, just few hobbies and little money. His family is exceptionally poor due to debts stacked with low wage jobs, so they really can't pay for him to do go do things. On top of that he doesn't have a means to get around easily. He can only afford to use the bus. He has a job outside of school, but thats mostly to save for college expenses. =P But I suppose it does have the strong flavor of a shoujo manga. All it is missing is the rival love interest, the useless guy friend to the male lead, the insane teacher, and the violent fan club. =P
That works for that role. Though it wouldn't make it as interesting if they got along swimmingly right off the bat. Though I suppose that is why the Shoujo's usually have the fan clubs to interrupt that.
