Tsubaki is a girl who loves making her younger sister's hair pretty every morning, but she doesn't think that kind of style suits herself! The day of her High School Beginning Ceremony, after she failed in being the top student (who usually makes the ceremony speech), she finds herself sitting next to the actual top student of the first years, the worst rude guy ever, Kyouta. She ends up cutting his hair on purpose because of the bad things he says to her. Kyouta demands that Tsubaki pay him back with her body, but Tsubaki fixes his hair instead--making it even shorter! After that, Kyouta unexpectedly kisses Tsubaki and swears that he'll make her his woman.

Who should(or rather would WANT to) read?

Beginners! Actually not really. I just think that beginners are the only people that could tolerate the characters. I read this when I first started getting into manga in general. This is the first smut I read. I really wanted to slap the main characters at first but they get "better" as in not as horrible as before. At least the boy did. The girl becomes a little less of a doormat but still invites people to walk all over her. I also recommend it to old veteran shoujo readers that have seen so much crap they are immune to it. You'll have a hoot! There's actual comedy in here if you can look past the idiotic characters. Drama addicts will love it too.

Who shouldn't read -
If you want a strong female lead - don't read. If you don't mind a weak female lead(not every girl has to kick butt or be super confident) as long she's not an IDIOT- don't read. If you don't mind a weak female lead as long as the male lead is good...the guy is an asshole. He's a poster boy for women who think "If I stay with the abuser maybe he'll change." He does "change"...kinda, but I feel sorry for the poor girls that don't remember that it's fiction. So yeah, no feminist either. If you don't care about the characters as long as there's a satisfying romance...Have you been paying attention? What kind of relationship can a doormat and a arrogant asshole have? They NEVER communicate their feelings. That's not a good relationship- don't read! Other than that, drama, drama, drama(more drama than any relationship has the right to have but that's just shoujo).

Final word-
If you can look past its many flaws it's an okay manga. Not horrible(I finished it after-all...) not good either(I wont re-read it...ever). If you read it and think that it's the most romantic story you've ever read, it's soooo amazing...It might be time to branch out. I started reading this when I was 14 and I knew it was crap...

i really love the art, but seriously the female character just irritating me a lot. i think 15 volumes just too long for a story like this. if you have plenty of time, read this for wasting time (like me lol xD) if not, i suggest the other shoujo series then.

I'm seriously annoyed. I've seen this manga out there every since I started getting into shoujo, which was quite a ways ago. Anyway, this has probably been one of the more annoying shoujos I have ever encountered. Like, seriously? After the male lead craps on her, she still chooses to love him more? Wow. She takes much pride in herself and her body.

As much people are saying about opinions, I will include that I have finished it and I've always learned to finish what I started - plus I wanted to write a review, so, eh.

The manga isn't BAD, it's just the characters are very... displeasing and in the beginning degrading.

cliche shojo but still cute. not overly dramatic, misunderstandings aren't long drawn out and cringe worthy. it toes the line between fairy tale and realistic..
good for a one time fluff read.
the jealousy stuff makes sense if you think about the guys history and her inexperience...

I actually really enjoyed this. The beginning wasn't really all that great but as they progressed in their relationship it was really nice to read. The ending wasn't as grand as I hoped it would be but I liked it nonetheless.

Well, back then I decided to drop this manga. I simply waited for it to be fully scanlated... I think if you read it again now (if you've also decided to drop it) or just read it now! Haha. You won't get dissappointed because you won't be that annoyed anymore because you can finally read it thouroughly in one shot. I guess I liked it very much even if it was one of those cliches. Give it a try. The ending is beautiful.

WARNING: I kinda started ranting.... bigrazz

I hate how many people seem to like this on other websites I visited. The manga is not only repetitive, melodramatic, and misleading, but also cliche.

Many who like the manga all seemed to ignore the repeatedly used scenes of the girl, Tsubaki, getting overly sensitive/jealous of those who get near her boyfriend.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
There's a girl who smiles at him? OH NO I better make a huge fuss out of it. I will cry and shout and scream my head off because obviously my loving boyfriend doesn't love me anymore. The dude want s to think about his own future instead of having a date with me? I'm trashing the cakes I made for him. Oh, and better yet, I'm definitely not telling him just how hurt I am. I'm not explaining a freaking thing to try to keep our relationship smooth sailing.

The main character is down right ridiculous to the point I want to slap her across the face with a flyswatter and feed her head to the sharks. Honestly, she is giving female readers my age the wrong message. She is making it seem like her ways of interacting with her boyfriend is totally normal, and is even a sign of true love.

That is utterly nonsensical. I can't believe I wasted so much time just to watch this girl throw tantrums...

Real love does NOT have to be so painful and filled with suffering. A healthy relationship doesn't need the constant fights and doubts about one another. It isn't filled to the brim with burning jealousy all the time, and if someone is in such a situation, then I don't think the relationship is the right one for the person. Seriously. Tsubaki's reactions to things that happen to her can, at best, be described as childish. Even Twilight is better than this, kind of.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Tsubaki is willing to throw away her own future for some high school dude she cut the hair off of.... WHERE DOES HER BURNING LOVE EVEN COME FROM? Yet, when her bf is spotted talking to another girl with a gentle expression, Tsubaki is 120% sure they're going to break up... How does that even make sense?!
She is totally consumed by her romance, and forgets about every other aspect of her life. What about her future? Friends? Family?

Her love is just inspired by the fact that a popular guy made her more popular, when in reality she could've achieved the same without his help. After this, scenes roll and suddenly they are madly in love. Just what in the world?

I don't mind the fact that this is just the story of an insecure girl with popular boyfriend; but this series crafts each chapter in such a way that it is implied that her relationships are totally healthy. And that, my friends, means that there are real girls reading this manga who may end up believing that they, too, have to go through all this just to find "the one".....

LOL If that is what true love is supposed to be, then to hell with it.

I started this manga about an year ago and now they finally finished the scans. There is so much misunderstanding that it makes me want to puke. You dont have to get so jealous all the time. Tsubaki seemed pretty stupid. Though, by the end of the manga, she became a little more "mature" maybe? I really hate all this jealousy and stuff so I dont really recommend this manga. The entire story is based on Tsubaki being jealous, frustrated and so on. One girl comes, Tsubaki is jealous, the guy clears the misunderstanding and they have some good time. Then another girl comes and its repeated. That's probably all of it.

(The Art was good, really good, full of details, the hair styles where really well done, I'd be lying if said it wasn't, so I gave it a 3 because of that)
About the plot:
It was unnecessary long, and the plot was just average, the parents were really bad parents (yeah, there are like two options in shoujo manga for parents: 1. they (practically) don't exist 2. They are bad. I know) and the protagonists where dumb, SO DUMB, of course, with those parents there wasn't much we could expect of them, but it was the extra that killed this manga for me, it was so, so predictable that I wanted to cry.

I made a mistake by reading this manga, I hope my review helps you to do not.

Let me start off by saying I loved the beginning of this manga and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the ending.

With that being said, boy did this manga frustrate me.

It started off so interesting it really reminded me a lot of Kare First Love which is a good shoujo, in my opinion, with a bit of unnecessary smut to give it a teen demographic. Except this one lacked good drama, instead it was whiny teen drama (minus the almost rape which was really ridiculous).

Regardless, the story started off really good and had an interesting plot but I felt like any true "tension" was thrown away in favor of bickering and making up.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I wish they hadn't gotten together so soon. I feel like Kyouta's trauma would be a nice bases for the story as he slowly warmed up to Tsubaki. I also feel like they should have made Kyouta's dad more into an abusive villain.

Didn't it seem like only Tsubaki was suffering the entire time?

It felt like as soon as they became a couple it was really just smooth sailing. Sure they argued, but not once did I feel anxious for the couple except when What'sHerFace that liked astronomy showed up (I'll admit I ALMOST cried when they decided to take a "break" though).

Kyouta was the most understanding boyfriend and when he threw little fits and ignored Tsubaki I thought, "Whatever, you deserve a break from dealing with that girl."

Don't get me wrong, I love Tsubaki. She has a beautiful character that actually learns her lessons and grows from it, she has understandable insecurities that comes with being a nerd dating a popular guy, but her misunderstandings are really frustrating! It's basically the plot of the entire manga right down to the last chapter!

Anyway, I guess it was a decent read. I definitely don't feel cheated, but this is by no means an "excellent" story. It was simply entertaining and should be given a chance. The ending is definitely satisfying and you do grow to really love the two main characters. I wish there was more story on Sakura, Miho and Hal though (I especially wanted Hal to find a new love!). Sometimes you need a break from the main couple to focus on the friends (Like in Kare First Love).

If you like this manga definitely try Kare First Love. It's a lot like this except the drama is much, much better.
