Description
From Viz:

Poor Sumi Kitamura… Her irresponsible older brother Eisuke keeps bringing home orphans for her to take care of even though they can barely afford their own basic needs! Just when Sumi's financial problems become dire, wealthy Soichiro Ashida enters her life with a bizarre proposition: he'll provide her with the money she so desperately needs if she agrees to marry him. But can Sumi fool high society into thinking she's a proper lady? Moreover, is it worth giving up everything for this sham of a marriage?

I give a 10 for this because, even though it is cliche and corny, it is a great shojou manga with many classic elements of a shojou manga! I love it!

I give 5 for this manga..
It's not boring but it bugs me.. the characters..esp Sumi is so...cliche..she's a dumb weak naive girl (with a heart of GOLD) who ended up marrying this really arrogant..rude..greedy bishie.. uh.. it's too much for me. I find her brother and adopted siblings to be INCREDIBLY annoying since they're so whiny and oblivious on what happened to their sister. She tried to SELL HERSELF forgodsakes!

The Smutty scenes and fanservices in this manga are plain stupid.. why would anyone liek to get a kiss from an abusive husband?? Bishie or NOT...I don't think anyone would deserve that kind of treatment to a woman. i really hate these kind of shoujos... it's degrading to the female identity ..we are not weak, whiny, vulnerable, indecisive, hopelessly in 'LOVE' and Naive in REAL LIFE. and obviously women do not EASILY SUBMIT ourselves to MEN. (no matter how 'bishonen' he is ..lol!!!)

i love ueda rinko's works! The art and the humor and the guys (Souchirou's a hottie even if he's a bit mean)! It is something of a mix between an marriage-of-convenience-themed romance novel (i love romance novels) and my fair lady.

I had liked the first 10 chapters or so. Then I hated it. Then I liked it again around chapter 20-something or so when we find out Sumi's talent for Shogi. Then in the recent chapters 30/31, Sumi does the most idiotic things. It's like a soap opera parody now. Seriously, Ueda Rinko is better than this!

i don't agree with celinae at all. its probabli cuz i'm not a big shoujo fan. in most shoujos, the beginning kinda gives u a feel of what the ending will be like, and theres usually a (baseless/irrational) lovey-dovey thing going on with the main characters from the very beginning. I've only read two chapters of this manga, and i'm definitely hooked. The characters are a bit different (if somewhat odd) and as the plot progresses your not sure whats going to happen next (dont get me wrong, it's not a mystery novel) and so far, your not even sure who's supposed to fall for who. I'm luvin' it, and i hope it keeps getting more interesting.

I was hoping that this would be another decent shoujo, as Ueda-sensei's other series aren't so bad, but so far it is overwhelmingly cliched. I mean, yes, you have to take several grains of salt to read manga, but I really don't see a romance like the first two chapters describe actually happening irl. There's a lot of fanservice, which doesn't help the flow of the plot at all, and the art is pretty but I'm dissatisfied with the story..

I'm still going to read the future chapters because I *do* like the manga-ka, and there is a chance that she might make something good out of it (like Tsuki no Shippou, which also, I guess, got off to a rough start). But I don't see any depth to it, so I guess I would only recommend this if you're a fan of shoujo, and Ueda-sensei.
