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.

Ok so i've read reviews on the other works this mangaka's done AND i have also READ this manga and i am sorry this manga is utter BEEP.
The main character started out interesting: she wanted to be cute, pretty etc. Not very original.
Then there comes this playboy hot guy (veryyyyy original) who wants to take her "firsts." You can tell without looking at the genre its all about smut...and sex. I hate this mangaka's smut.
The male MC's got mother issues which every other shojo hero/heroine does and for some reason after kind of half-abusing her she still LIKES HIM. That, my friends is messed up.
This is very cliched i won't lie, but the underlying themes of sexual harassment left me really uneasy especially when his former friend does something to her and then they forgive him...his reason was so fricking stupid!! IM SO ANGRY AT THE GIRL"S IN THIS MANGA.

I dont care what anyone says, whether its a typical shoujo or something really exciting. I love reading shoujo's, its the genre I stick to despite being able to depict the future. I mean, i'm laughing over here because when you first pick it up or read it via the internet, it shows you the genre and you guys still read it already knowing it's a cliche then bitch about the heroine being whiny or cry's alot. As you can see whiny heroines and hot bishies get high ratings. I mean how can you people not like these sappy, cheesy love storys? We all know it does not happen in real life so you might aswell enjoy it in a book. I mean if your looking for a different type of shoujo/romance then read shounen/ romance. That should give you a run for your money. Lastly, I love their budding romance, its actually very cute and very refreshing also I love it when the male league always one step ahead of her. I also would like to congratulate her as well because she tried so hard for him and never give up because if it was me I would probably ignore him and move on. Well that tells you the difference between reality and fantasy. All in all, I love it and recommend it, it was actually one of the first manga I read that got me hooked on shoujos and now I'm never turning back smile

You have the weak female,the bullies,the jealous best friend,the popular guy who can't seem to get over his "dark past" and to sum it all up,the cliched plot. Commonplace as it is,the art was remarkable and refreshingly good,so I assume that got this manga some heated popularity somewhere around. I personally think the author (Kanan) has greatly improved with the art as compared to her previous works. The good part was actually when the author decided to fit in some smutty details although subtle if I may conclude.
Anyway,this is pretty much dragging along with the the rest and the plot's REALLY getting annoying. The author tries to come up with different subplots just to separate both leads in some way but get together in the end which is kind of like trying to divert the readers' attention away from the main couple and pick up some other side character suitable enough for the female.So turns out a love triangle,love polygon or whatever you call it.And this goes on and on and on that it gets sickeningly repetitive.
I decided to drop this,anyway.Isn't it already too predictable once it ends?

Cliche story, good execution

The story is your typical high school romance, with the usual cliches and storylines (getting together, first dates, relationship trials, etc.) you would expect, so not much originality there. But I do think the execution of the story is better than average.

The leads are appealing. I actually think the heroine is pretty interesting in her old-fashioned ways. And I like how the characters' actions actually make sense with respect to their personalities. Even little things like how Hibino has to fold her clothes before her first time having sex.

There are the occasional love rivals, but for the most part, the major relationship problems are mundane everyday issues that real teenagers deal with on a first relationship (learning to trust, balancing studying with love life, sex or no sex, deciding on what to do after graduation), and the writer does a good job of illustrating particular moments from a first love, like the weird feeling you get when you first talk to the person you like over the phone.

All in all, a decent read.

So okay. for the record i just read like 9 chapters of it and it already annoys the hell outta me. I don't get the heroine. Is she really smart or what? I love reading smut. And we all know that SMUT MANGA usually have dumb heroine. But this one is just annoyingly dumb. >.< it irks me!

The story so far, I can't believe she fell in love in like a few chapter with the guy who "BULLY" her.
and the part where the lead guy stole her first kiss? That's just so cliche! DX

But still this manga is on my to-read list. I still wanna know what her sister will do to get the lead guy, and what she will do to stop that. If she do anything annoying for me again, then this'll be trash! I'll rate 4 now, for the art. at least it's tolerable than other smutty character :\

Exhausting to read because of the lead female's constant, ceaseless blushing. I honestly tried carrying on because it was labeled "smut" and the guy happens to be hot. However, seeing as I found none such smut, and no discernable plot along the way either, I was sorely disappointed.

Sexist. The girl is annoying. Too needy, dependent. Makes females look bad. :/ The male is a little more charming then the average male, and is more likeable then the heroine. The art was good so I'll give it a 5.

When I first started reading, it was pretty decent. I liked how the girl was strong-willed and different from all the others (by others, I mean the typical shoujo girl). newho, It WAS interesting, but then it got too boring because the same things are happening over and over again.

Guy does something> girl freaks out (misunderstands)> girl tries to solve problem> messes up or tries relle hard to fix it, but can't> misunderstanding is explained > they love each other> end.
(Something along the lines of that)

Butttt... despite that , I haven't dropped it on the off chance that it gets good.

OVERALL in my opinion, this manga is not unbearable, but not mind blowingly amazing either. Maybe once upon a time, but definately not now. hopefully in the future....

No, no, no.
Technically, i don't think the guy is at fault here, or maybe it's just me - i'm a feminist, surprise surprise. Seeing this stupid, dumb creation of what is a female just crying, crying and crying basically every single chapter because 'oh, he doesn't love me' or 'it's all my fault' is just painful. I forgot what an asshole the guy was, seeing the girl reacting the way she was just irked me to the max. And does every girl need to be selfless, caring and immensely forgiving? Can't a shoujo manga lead be the opposite for once! I would love for a slutty heroine to be in a shoujo manga! It would rock my world. ==

Cliches drop like bombs in World Wars here. Heck, they're everywhere. Sure, i wanted to see them have sex for the sake of it (why do i read smut?). But she doesn't need to blush everytime the guy touches her, or for everything that happens. And please, don't keep dragging and prolonging the bloody manga. It's just the same thing happening over and over again. Random bitch pops up, big obstacles, sad and troubled past, have to go overseas, we've seen it all. For the sake of it, just give it a sweet and satisfactory ending and all will be happy. smile

That being said, don't expect a lot from Minami Kanan; she's the best at creating useless heroines. I'd rather read Shinjo Mayu's works.
I would love to give this a 0, if possible. Well, since it's impossible, i'll give the art a 1. smile

P.S. oh, one of the tags has 'character growth' on it, and very big letters at that! Would someone kindly tell me how character growth is shown in this manga? I would GREATLY appreciate it, you know? -_-

I read this because of its popularity on manga websites. At first I was horror-stricken. Then I reminded myself of the smut genre, the fact that it's shoujo, and that it could be worse - somehow I swallowed it better. I hate cliches, but this is cliches cliches cliches everywhere, so much that I've become immune to it in this series, because I don't take it seriously. Some series are like that, you read it lightly, but you don't take it seriously. I can't remember which chapters I read. I only read the beginning and then skipped around a few of the newer ones. It's pretty much the same, except at first, the guy was absolutely horrible. Even for shoujo. His douchiness rivaled that of Kuran Kaname's in Vampire Knight (just in a different way), which was a first for my eyes. But then his character toned down and evened out a bit, and lo and behold, he turns out to be a sweet guy ect. Predictable, but I guess better than remaining as he was in the beginning. And the girl Tsubaki, despite being ridiculously infuriating, has a strange appeal in the sense that she doesn't give up on improving herself and she's not portrayed as a saint, just clueless and hesitant. A little more self-respect could help though, but I guess that's too much to ask for a smut manga. (Though I honestly think it would have been better if it wasn't smut, just an average shoujo comic. Somehow it seemed forced.) Overall, the art is the highest rated category. Really nice art. Hair, eyes, ect.

I'd recommend this to people who like shoujo or don't mind unrealistic relationship dynamics.
