Very Likeable Female Lead

The female lead is not your stereotypical shoujo lead.
I definitely like her type. I was completely dumbfolded everytime I came across situations where normal shoujo lead wouldn't do but Setsuna would. Like kissing in the street with an old man to show your exboyfriend who made a fool out you that you can't take girls lightly.

The story is interesting and a total great read.
I would totally recommend this even if my eyes are close. hehehe >.<
Great manga like this doesn't come often.

Now this may be because I've been swimming in a pool of vapid crybaby shoujo romances for half a decade now, but any story like this with realistic and emotional, but stoic female leads and perverted but controlled ojisan male leads really gets me going. I mean I was wholly engaged into this story from the get go from page 1 (the art!!!) and page 2 cinched it (the almost kiss). The dynamic is well explored, I think both sides are practical and realistically portrayed (as realistic as manga can get!) and the direction of the story (whether serialised further or not) is going at a very enjoyable pace. I certainly wouldn't be opposed to a further 8 volumes of this unpredictable relationship.

Almost perfect!!

I really enjoyed this. The only problem is it's not suited for a oneshot. I wanted more, I felt like I got a small taste of something that could have been a magnificent story. I'm happy, but at the same time unsettled inside because I want more. If there was a sequel I would read it in a heartbeat. Well here's keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel to come out ....
Great story, but it could have been Magnificent. I would still recommend it.

It got serialized? That makes me happy. Although the second chapter was a little disappointing .... it felt like we took 5 steps back, and didn't have that wow this is great as the first chapter. I'll see if I need to change my rating after it's done. Can't wait to read more.

UPDATE
Now that I've finished it ... which not only was I sad that it ended so soon T^T , but the ending *sigh* it's a bit of a let down. My rating went from 9.5 back when it was a oneshot to a 9 ...
I literally screamed "What kind of ending is that?" but I did enjoy this for the most part. The only thing that can bring the rating up a bit would be an extra ... but there isn't any so it stays a 9.

Well executed.

Yes, I liked it. Actually I have a tough time with finishing Cyboy by the same author, even though I liked some other works before. So, I was a bit hesitant to read this in the beginning, but I'm glad, that I have given it a chance to show me again the authors strong points.

The characters were both likeable and had a realistc touch to them, although the pages number doesn't allow much development, they left me with the impression of improvement. The ending was well executed. As for the artwork: It is - as expected - again nice to look at and makes this one a recommendable choice. ^^

I thought it was a so-so...but when I flip the page,it's like "this is what I'm looking for!"
I wish it's not one-shot though.urgh...wish the mangaka extended it to 2-3 chapters.

The kiss on the street was awesome.

Perfect

For me, who has extremely high standards, this oneshot turned out to be perfect. It was a great mix of cold female lead and perverted male lead. You could tell straight away that the female lead was extremely strong (mentally) and not overly clingy. I liked it. Also, the male lead was adorable (even if he was an Ojiisan) and I could totally relate to his people watching tactics (I'm a writer too).
