Getting Annoying

Started out nicely.
Nanoka and Hayata are cute together.
But Nanoka is always flash-backing about her old boyfriend every few pages. She thinks more about her old relationship than her new one.
Hayata obliviously picks up on this through Nanoka's expressions and body language and eventually learns the truth little by little.
Frankly speaking Nanoka is no good for Hayata as she cannot focus on him and keeps hurting him emotionally.
What irks me the most is public opinion, i.e. Hayata is boring coz he is not a seductive playboy and Takato is exciting.
Besides the early chapters this manga has been a train wreck to so far from the RAWS,

I knew before reading the chapters available (upto ch.8) I wasn't going to hate it (because I'm not picky when it comes to reading shoujo), but I i didn't expect to like it as much as I did. The art is nice, the writing is good and the plot is differs a bit from the basic shoujo plot (based on the ones i've read at least). Someone mentioned about the pace being slow, but I think that the pace is fine. I think what I like about the story the most is that the pace allows for character growth and a more realistic plot. I just hope that it's not one of those manga's that start out good but then takes a sudden turn for the worst.

Better than I thought, but still mediocre at best.

I scoffed at the synopsis until a friend talked about really liking Takato, so I picked it up.
The story isn't good. It's full of not-so-well pulled off cliches, and in the end the main plot, like always, is based on a misunderstanding that could be easily resolved by an explanation, but isn't (or I guess not until the end? Manga's still ongoing) The writing isn't good (mostly, there are some good parts), but they do explore areas that aren't often done. (i.e. older female highschooler x middle schooler guy, they both have exes, etc, but the thing about asking him out before even getting to know him, just because "he isn't like other guys" as if he's the only one who would think/do such things, is completely ridiculous. It's no different from a guy making a girl and exception because "she's not like other girls" yeah no)
Takato is an interesting character, albeit a horrible person. I forgave him more easily around c30 or so. His character development is rather decent. His parts were more interesting to read, but he can say some extremely aggravating things before
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he realizes how wrong he was. He still needs to apologize. He's not Fuwa Shou. He can't get away with forcing a kiss on a girl in such a creepy way and without apologizing.
.
Nanoka's gorgeous, can be strong (emotionally) and not so much at times, but she tries her best. She fixes most of her communication/personality problems quickly in the beginning, which weren't much to begin with. I can't say she develops that much as a character, rather than that her circumstances changed. She has no real flaws, and if someone called her a Mary Sue, I'd have a difficult time arguing that. Still, for most of the series, I liked her best out of all the characters. Which isn't saying much, because all the characters were rather weak (as in not very well-constructed). Her denseness can be irritating at times, as well. By the way, clumsy girls aren't as cute as people think they are. Speak to my legs covered in scars and bruises. Falling three times on the way to the airport, having a suitcase fall down a long flight of stairs, and then getting a black eye from accidentally socking yourself in the cheek with the seat arm--all in one day? It's not fun, and definitely not pretty. :T
Hayata has some great expressions (and some not-so-great, but that's only because some of those remind me of Makoto, which pisses me off)--he's rather too perfect? I mean yeah, he has some flaws, but no real flaws. He's great, but let's face it--he's boring. We look at his dazzling expression, get entranced, and then 10 minutes later we forget about him. That's the sort of character he is.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Well, it was obvious he was endgame from the beginning.
The way his jealousy was played out was cliche and tiresome.
Kensuke is too convenient of a character. It's obvious and distracting.

I have to say, though, that this manga did manage to catch me off guard at times. There were moments I actually did not expect, that were technically still cliche, but cliche with a spin. Those parts, which were usually Takato's, were the most interesting to me.

Was it worth the read? Ehh. It's ok. I wouldn't read it unless you're bored and have nothing better to do. Also, if you like the legit nice guys. This wasn't for me, since I usually prefer darker relationship dynamics. At the very least, the endgame so far is being done a lot better than Hirunaka no Ryuusei did theirs.

The two guys are ridic cute so I will probably keep reading this despite the already repetitive nature of the story. It's already using fairly cliched shoujo plot devices so I am just expecting the amount to increase by the chapter.

The main female lead isn't weak; just passive, naive and somewhat brooding. The main guy is a typical nice guy and her ex is the "bad boy" type. Her friend also has the "bad luck in love, dating a sleazy dude, takes her anger out on her friend but regrets it later after something terrible has happened/overhears her friend praise her" type personality. I wouldn't say this is standard shoujo fare but it's fairly close to average.

It started out very normal, nothing trite, but nothing extraordinary. But suddenly it became more slice of life (which I generally loathe, I have no patience for rambling monologues) about how a young girl can let one event take over her whole life and relationships with others. I was really enjoying the direction and enjoyed the little twist at the end even more. I'm definitely looking forward to this title being explored both from a SOL perspective, as well as a romantic angle. Hope the pacing doesn't get messed up with the mangaka trying to resolve it all in one short volume.
Art's nice, nothing to make your heart race, but good looking enough to keep you interested. Characters are multilayered and the storytelling mature.

Edit (after reading chapter 3): Pace is very stable and interesting, but why aren't things HAPPENING, instead of the same struggle being dragged out endlessly.

This is so different from most manga I've read, and I can't wait for the next chapter! I really hope it continues! It is a very honest, slice-of-life manga. And the main character is not stupid for once! She's quite relateable compared to most mary-sues flooding manga nowdays.

I only read one chapter, since that's the only one scanlates, but from what I can gather, this seems to be an interesting read. The girl, is well typical and all, but her "typical", melancholic, high school love/friendship problems, are somewhat touching, as well as being realistic in a sense. I guess that is expected from the manga-ka (I think) that did Akuma to Love Song.
