Not a cheesy shoujo?   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Okay, I'm not gonna lie, I started this purely for the art as I am a huge fan of Haruta Nana's art (stardust wink, love berrish, chocolate cosmos). I was a bit put off by the protagonist at first, purely due to the fact that she was first introduced as a stalker. I thought it was going to be a typical shoujo manga where the girl is hopelessly dense and clumsy and all that jazz, but I am pleasantly surprised to see how Tsubasa has developed over the course of the series! Unlike the typical Strong Female Lead character (who are usually my favorite type of female leads), Tsubasa is strong in the sense that she's extremely strong-willed and compassionate? She's cute and passionate, and isn't afraid to express her feelings while doing it in a polite/not annoying way.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It was really refreshing to see that the confession was not dragged out like they usually are in shoujo manga. It's really interesting and cute to see Tsubasa and Akki's relationship develop throughout the series (and also from the point that she confessed to him)
The only thing that kept this title from getting full ratings is the love triangle attribute. While I'm not a fan of love triangles, I do think this one was done well. My only problem with it is the personality changes in the other love interest. It's always sad to see authors sacrifice one good character's development in favor of furthering another. Do not worry, it's very subtle, although it is there. Overall, I really adore this manga. The characters are interesting and the art is nice. The pacing is pretty good and doesn't seem to drag on like similar titles (i.e. Last Game although it is one of my favorite). The main leads are by far some of my favorites in this genre. It also helps that Akki is very reminiscent of Mamura from Hirunaka no Ryuusei (bae #1 biggrin) in terms of characterization (isssh don't quote me on this)!

Shaping up to be a cute read

Characters are intricately woven. The female lead clearly has a mild case of OCD and its pros and cons become apparent through her interactions. I like the basketball club setting coz yes, it does show off hotties in the best light AND it makes for cute scenarios like club trips and sports festivals! Art is very nice, not too fluffy but shoujo-like all the same. Expressions are a little limited right now, and dialogues could use sprucing up, but the story's just getting off the ground here.

Story direction is very intriguing, I'm especially loving the secondary characters like the best friend Yuri chan and the hottie of the basketball club. This is one title to look out for!

PS Senpai scans is working hard on these scans! They're coming out with a chapter daily! Whoot!
