Taken from VIZ:

Kosaku Hatanaka is the first pro boxer ever produced by Mukaida's Gym. He's also the bane of his coach's existence. Although he's constantly waging war against his appetite, Kosaku never met a meal he didn't like! Naturally, this plays havoc with his weight class. Junior bantamweight, bantamweight, junior featherweight... every time he moves up a class, his coach's hopes plummet. Isn't gluttony a sin?

Sister Angela is a young novice nun who's dedicated, passionate, and convinced that we should give peace a chance. Although she refuses to acknowledge it, it's obvious that Kosaku comes to St. Mary's for more than confession! He comes to see the smile of the beautiful sister, of course! Can her faith redeem the gluttonous appetite of the tempted lamb astride the scale?

Well, I for one enjoyed this manga. I thought at first it was going to be like Maison Ikkoku, which really turned me away from this manga, but then I thought what the heck, I loved Ranma1/2 and Inuyasha, so I should give this a chance too.
And I'm glad I did. This manga is really a cheer-up kinda manga. It's simple, and cliched(perhaps), but it's deeply satisfying. The storyline's pretty much of the "underdog" style, but it's got classic Takahashi humor.The romance is slow(as always), but it's nice to see their progress every once in a while. It's sweet.

I think that what this manga offers is just a simple, cute storyline. It's a nice break from Naruto or even Fruits Basket in that the angst levels aren't high.

Being a longtime takahashi's fan , i read all she created smile OPG is not great, but not bad either. It's refreshing, and the stuff nun-in-love is interesting. Just a fun read, while not give it a try?

It's not Takahashi's most successful creation, but it's also really not that bad at all. The art is great for its time. It's a little repetetive but aren't all of Takahashi's creations repetetive? (i.e. Ranma 1/2, Inu Yasha)
Give it a try. I recommend it. It's a fun read.
