Somewhat realistic take on relationships   
Rating: N/A

For many its a bit hard to swallow take on romances and relationships and looking at reviews it seems people are confusing it to be a bad manga. It is not. It is a good manga if you know what you are getting into.

It follows the romantic life of two leads as they fall in love and deal with their relationships. One is lazy and the other is serious about life. It is not your typical feel-good manga and the ending doesn't give sufficient closure but that's how life is, you don't always get closures or things to go the way you want.

So, if you are looking for fluffy romance, unyielding love, happy closure this manga is not for you.

I'm sorry I ever stated this

The characters just don't seem to really care to deeply for each other at all. They were more like friends with benefits. I don't think either one of them actually expressed a single feeling to the other in this manga or it's prequel. It seemed they only stayed together out of convenience. The dialogue was UN-natural . Both characters are completely hollow and shallow. Every time she asks him a serious question regarding their relationship, his answer was always something like "I haven't ever thought about it that deeply" or something like that. He's a complete and total slacker wasting his time in college and has no ambition for the future. She's studying hard to pass the bar exam. Is he too stupid to understand that this is a major part of their problem? When I read romance, I want to read about 2 people falling in love. I want to actually feel the love flow off the pages. I don't want to read about 2 people who don't feel strongly for each other and I don't like reading about couples doomed from the start. I should of quit reading this after the 1st chapter of the prequel, but like the glutton for punishment that I am, I read all of it and the final ending didn't really resolve anything.

Probably Shows Real Adult Life   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The disorder of the love/sex lives of the main characters, summarized above by ajaykumaryadav, is probably realistic re the behavior of young people now. I can't tell for sure though, because I'm old! But if it is, then this series will find its audience. I suspect that the main thing that will get in the way of its doing so, however, is the sheer unattractiveness of almost everything we see in this series. The main characters are definitely plain, even ugly. The guy blows smoke on the girl constantly. Reminds me of almost a whole lifetime ago in the USA, when smoking was practiced everywhere, to the discomfort of every non-smoker, and especially me. Therefore, given the moral disorder of the people plus their ugliness, this is totally not for me. It's probably not for a lot of teenagers either, because many of them may still prefer to read stories about virgins.

Pretty Good

If you are looking for a fairy tale, this isn't it.
Unlike the reviewer below me i actually loved this story, got knots in my stomach when i read it and could hardly wait for the next chapter to be translated. Seems like the majority of what he wrote is just plain wrong.
My only problem was with the female lead. Her dialogue was just so unrealistic and he actions contradicted everything she said. Maybe that was the whole point, i don't know.
Overall i really enjoyed it.
