I love this manga

Dunno what's with the terrible reviews that basically goes off the reasoning's of "because there's no real plot to it and just random happenings everyday"... I mean it is SLICE OF LIFE... people should really check the genres before they read something... I thought it was absolutely adorable and a great read to pass time. The female lead is awesome, you rarely see a female lead who's more calm than the male lead in a romance, I love the change. I totally recommend this read to everyone who can enjoy a good slice of life.

Cute and funny, but don't expect more

It's a very simple and funny concept. Obviously its greatest hurdle is that it needs to always mantain the status quo. Which means that the chapters will stay episodic and unrelated, and the formula will most likely never change. The guy will keep getting successfully teased and the girl will keep hinting at her feelings, with him forgetting about it the very next chapter. It makes sense in the way that Takagi actually enjoys the situation they're in right now and doesn't want to change it. You'll have fun with this manga if you read it as a gag manga with cute hues, and nothing else.

If you are looking for a manga that depicts a tug-o-war relationship and does it marvelously, check out "Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai". This manga does have its merits, but it is repetitive in the worst way a manga can be. The girl doesn't seem to have much of an objective and the boy is way too spineless.

@::WonderWoman:: A good slice of life manga keeps things interesting by constantly putting characters in new situations and having them interact in different ways, and then drawing comedy out of it with good writing and visual art. This doesn't do that consistently enough, there are a few chapters that mix things up, but 90% of the chapters follow the EXACT same formula.

Hating the girl.   
Rating: N/A

While there's no solid objective reason to, I hate her living guts. For the very first time in a long time I'm hoping the character gets dumped. I've read real scumbags but this character has ticked me so much off!
Seriously, there's teasing and there's the level of this girl. It might have been good if she suffered a defeat from time to time-a tug of war relationship, where they try to one-up each other and have fun as they lose and win, which is something that happens in real life- but as episodes go on it grows worse in my opinion.
The worst, though, it's that most likely the manga will end with either guy either not winning once or getting a very minor pyrrhic victory. it's a pity it's so predictable.

Started real good, loved the premise, but then the biggest problem with the manga became apparent: it has no plot. And by that I mean some kind of movement from the first chapter, but nope. You may as well call chapter 17 the first chapter and vice versa for all the difference it makes. In the end, its just a gag manga with hints of a romance that won't ever happen because:
From the outlook, the author wants it to be heavily centered around the main two characters, so rule out any drama from other characters, and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The reason that the manga continues is because she can tease him, which would be ruined if they got into a relationship

If you're looking for a casual read, look no more. The vibe I get from this series is the same feeling I get when I read Yotsubato&. The series isn't your typical romance series, so don't expect it to be a serious love story. However, it does a really good job at making the reader grin (if you like slice of life). It may seem somewhat repetitive at times, but for a light hearted romance that can make you go hnng~, that can be forgiven.

Episodic and a little repetitive. Still if you like these kind of teasing-gullible antics between two kids you may enjoy it. It's cute but very predictable - chapters are also super short.

Boy gets worked up by something, girl teases him mercilessly, in the end she has him in the palm of her hand and he can't do a damn thing about it.

Very cute teasing romance.
