From Del Rey: It's a gorgeous, spacious mansion, and four handsome, fifteen-year-old friends are allowed to live in it for free!

Enter Sunako Nakahara, the agoraphobic, horror-movie-loving, pockmark-faced, frizzy-haired, fashion-illiterate recluse who tends to break into explosive nosebleeds whenever she sees anyone attractive. This project is going to take more than our four heroes ever expected: it needs a miracle!

Starting to get boring
I'm very intrigued by this manga but At the same time it's too slow in terms of where this author is trying to take it.. Art is not great but I kinda like it still.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a goth, loner, awkward girl is forced to live at her aunts mansion with 4 guys. The aunt is never there so they run amuck all over the place and end up going on different adventures. They are all there because of different circumstances. The main deal is they have to transform this girl into a lovely chick if they want to live there rent free. One boy in particular takes a big interest in it.. It is now developing into a bit of a connection between the two that they are too silly to get. The last chapter they are trying to celebrate the New Year together as just the close friends and one of them gets a huge crab. They are super excited but hundreds of girls come to crash the party and they have no choice but to evacuate. The girl forgot her skulls though and has to go back. She then realizes how important the crab is for the boys so she tries to save it from the girls. The guy saves her and they run away together and end up having an oblivious romantic embrace while watching the fireworks. They all end up at the spa where they enjoy the crab and some relaxation time.
Although it's getting boring I still enjoy reading this manga quite a lot .
So Much Potential...
It's an all around decent story, with good art, plotline, comedy, and characters with depth. The only downside is that it is taking foreveeeerr to finish.

Sunako is about as ladylike as she's going to get and her and Kyohei are just a slight nudge away from actually getting together
If only Hayakawa would stop reverting things back to normal right after some improvement :J. And is it just me or are Ranmaru and Kyohei subtly looking more and more alike, o_o. Anyway the story honestly could end within a couple of chapters of where the scanlators have scanlated thus far (ch 131), but no, of course there's 2 more volumes (for now) OTL. And of course I'm going to end up reading them TT_TT
Like others, I read this and, for once, finally caught up to it. I don't think I will read any new chapters since they are the same ideas as before. It's predictable after reading less than half of the chapters. I dislike the side pairings, except Eve (I believe that's his name). The others just seemed a bit too quirky for me.
Ready for an Ending
Started this series a while ago and it was just great. The anime for it is funny, too. I totally recommend the series. Its offbeat, dark, and quirky heroine, Sunako, will keep you laughing and I love the reaction of those around her. Unfortunately, after 28 books, the series isn't really bringing anything new to the table. And, when things start getting too predictable, it's time for me to fold up my tent and move on. It makes me a bit sad when great ideas/stories get dragged out like this. It does the characters a disservice, I think. They're good characters and deserve a good ending and closure, as do the readers! But, beginning this series, yeh, it's worth it. [catch the anime, too; fun viewing!]
Love this story
It's a manga that can make me laugh and cheer me up when I feel down. It's a cute story where four guys want free rent and the only way they could get it is if they change this girl that loves the way she is. Sunako is awesome and is a big part on way I love this manga so much. Full review check it out http://otakulalaland.blogspot.com/2013/07/perfect-girl-evolution.html
Not bad, but not great either
I picked up this manga years ago when I was bored. For the first few volumes, the story is pretty refreshing and different from other manga stories. But book after book, it kind of gets old real fast...especially how since there hasn't been any improvement turning the main character into a lady.
Also the girls were drawn very gorgeous, but I can't say the same for the guys. They are too skinny and their limbs are too long. The mangaka isn't very good at drawing body figure, limbs, hands, etc.it seems. The guys' "prettiness" make me gag after a few pages. I would recommend this if you're really bored and wanted something to do to pass time. Or better yet, just watch the anime. I quickly dropped the manga after a few volumes because as I said earlier, the pacing is extremely slow.

The boys are adorable and sunako is bat crap crazy so every chapter is funny and cute. The romantic plot is a little slow (the two main characters are tragically dense) but I really enjoy reading this series. I love the manga, anime and jdrama. Can't get enough of it

ok i started reading this about 2-3 years ago the summary sounded soo good but as i kept reading this crappy thing got crappier nothing is good like how it started the story isn't moving no relationship between our main changing way way way to slow story im so kicking this off my lost to ready anymore going to read other good stuff
btw i came to this story 2-3 years ago for romance since that was one of the genre but it lack that specially between the main character
going to forget this starting today and only enjoying my favorite Skip Beat!! which i hope last forever at least our favorite characters grow older and even though the romance has been slow in this too but at least we can see oneside love haven't read it for a while has i like to pile my chapaters and then enjoy rather then torture myself everything i do it all at once lol
it's an endless gag series
I've been following this series on and off again for years, and while it's ridiculous that Sunako & Kyouhei's relationship still haven't gotten anywhere, (and that they're all still 15 years old even after a jillion Valentine's Day chapters), I've grown to appreciate it just for being a funny and entertaining slice of life-type manga. As long as you don't start reading this expecting a lot of development on the overall plot, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

It's definitely one of my favorites!
I seriously love this manga so much, I wish the updates would come in faster, but we all can't get what we want, right. When you're first reading this, the artwork is strange and a bit unusual, but after awhile you get used to it's all together uniqueness. Some people complain about the chibi, but it's never bothered me. The story is great and funny, but the latest volumes seem useless and not moving forward with the plot. Don't get me wrong I still enjoy the series but it feels like there wont be an ending anytime soon, like you could skip some of the latest chapters and you know at the end they'd probably be eating instead. But all in all a great read, the characters are amazing and the story is filled with laughs and the few romantic scenes between the leads are precious. I highly recommend you read this if you have a dark sense of humor, you enjoy a unique female lead unlike the annoying cliched characters and you just want to read something good. I'd also recommend the anime, I don't know about the live action though, I haven't seen it but I hear it's just as good. c:
