Frankly, a mess

Sure, it started out good enough. A 'different' sort of protagonist, who does not immediately fall in love with the cool guy who confesses. Fine. But the progress of the story is just so slow and confusing. I don't know how many times I think, oh it seems like they're together. But NO. Despite the fact she obviously likes him, every time there's some progress she's like no, don't act so close. It takes her forever to say that she'll think about it and even longer for them to officially become a couple. And usually, stories which have such a long drawn out plot have something interesting in between. But the basketball thing just got boring and repetitive after a while.

It doesn't help that the two characters aren't the most likable. The girl is interesting in the beginning, but slowly her indecisiveness just gets tiresome. Her dedication towards the club, which is supposed to be endearing, just seems unrealistic and has the opposite effect on me - I wanna tell her to just give it a rest already. The guy is ok, I guess, but I dislike how he's drawn. His expressions don't seem like they change.

In all, I was disappointed and am probably going to drop it in the next few chapters.

I mean, it was cute at first how she resists him but come on, you already confessed and such how selfish can you get? Like if you can't commit and be seriously involved with him then reject him at once - plain and simple.

She just became really really irritating with her one step forward three steps back and her indecision as the story progresses that it got on my nerves.

I usually like these types of stories (i.e. maid sama), but seriously after coming this far and with this amount of chapters, I just got annoyed with the progress of the love story.

I mean it was good, but yeah, I'm not gonna continue with it anymore sad

Stubborn female leads are good but I hate it when they do nothing but avoid a guy stalking you for 31 chapters. Seriously, enough is enough. You either go out with him or you don't.

I think this puppy love manga is so cute! It has potential. I love how he declares his love in the first chapter. I'm tired of shoujo mangas with main characters taking 20 chapters to confess their love...NO! No Bueno. Those mangas give you unnecessary heart break

This guy has HOT pheromonal action oozing in every panel. He's like the male MC from Stroke Material plus Kaichou wa maid sama (as a LOT of tsukkomus will tell you) and Kei from Special A. Meaning he is besotted but collected but devious yet charming still a little bit rakish and.... Ohh I could go on!

And the heroine is very fun as well. Very kuudere, very collected, very committed to staying collected at all times too.. and when someone comes along and tries to drive her up the wall... well you can see her reaction in the cover art can you not!

Superbly paced school-life romance to enjoy with an occasional sprinkling of over the top humor which keeps you hooked.

Argh! I'm at chapter 18 (with mangalator) and tbh I can't believe the audacious (and panty droppingly hot) things he does considering they haven't started "Dating" yet.

I'm just going to use another commentor's words here, since her description was perfect.

"This is shoujo. And not your Typical -- 'HEY IM IN LOVE WITH A JERK AND IM A HAPPY GIRL' Shoujo. It's the -- 'HOLY CRAP WHY IS THIS GUY TOUCHING ME. HELP' kind of shoujo...
Reminds me of Kaichou wa Maid sama. smile

Heroine isn't a push over crybaby. She's a girl with a temper she can hold to most people. Then here comes a cannon ball, shooting her down and pushing down her barrier. Instead of the girl being crazy for the guy who manages to see her inner self and be okay with it, Yuki doesn't even give two sh*ts to someone like Naruse. It's like a soldier defending a wall; They don't stop shooting even if their defenses are down, until you are dead on the ground. I mean, she has a crush, and here comes this guy who groped her and kissed her, and now confessing he likes her. She didn't blush and say 'TAKE ME SENPAI'. She says 'OH GOD' with a dreadful stare. I mean, what's better than THAT?" --Mangahere. com comment

So far you have a cool female lead who, is well, as the tags says. She's not cold per, se, but more rational, kinda like the main girl (forgot her name- Shizuku?) from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. The male lead is your typical arrogant-ish guy who seems to see right through her. For once, you also see a female lead that says
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"oh gosh/[crap]" when he confesses to her!

This has potential, I just hope she doesn't lose too much of her coldness as the story progresses or starting to get the blushy thing like many shoujo gals that were awesome before, but have resulted to.
