A 26-year-old salaryman, Matsumaru Fumihiko, asked Miss Tanaka from his work to watch a movie with him, but she didn't show up at the movie theater. As he is about to throw away the ticket, a 20-year-old, rookie voice actress named Onda Aka asked for the ticket. The two of them end up watching the movie together.

On their way home they notice that they live near each other. That night, Aka's apartment burns down and Matsumaru offers his help. She ends up living with him, but they have to keep it a secret to keep their jobs. What will happen to this relationship that is more than friends but less than lovers?

what is it with mangas and dumb broads, I mean like wtf is happening to seinen mangas this days, too much netorare, the dumb type. I avoid shoujo manga specifically to avoid this type of naive dumb girls somehow they keep showing up in seinen more and more. meh..

its almost perfect, especially when aka was about to have sex with the other guy, i sound crazy but it is true you have to try feel what aka is feeling since he lost all that weight for her and also damaged his face and rescued her but if i was aka i would have rejected him

Does anyone ever think that the author do this on purpose ?!?! by "this" i mean making her resist Matsumaru all the time then no resisting at some of the critical time ... just give it a thought .. coz some of these manga, the author just want to f*ck with ur (readers) mind .. and it look like he succeeded..

I gotta say, this series is really boring. I liked it at first but it's just repeating the same thing all over.
I've read some of the raging about chapter 24, I can admit I was raging a bit because of that as well, but not for the same reason:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Aka almost had sex with that other dude with no resistance at all just because he pushed her a little bit, that was meh I suppose, the thing that makes me rage is that she keeps refusing her own BOYFRIENDS advances throughout the whole series so far(read 48 chapters) and I'm seriously contemplating dropping this show

Well, I guess it can be a good way to kill some time, but if ur looking for a good manga, keep looking, this will just get you bored halfway through

Well if author wanted me to hate main female character he succeeded in 100%. I fell so bad and angry after those 30 chapters that I cant continue to read this. Though even

killing Lucy in the end of Elfen Lied
was less disappointing. I might come back to this in the future cause it has 12 vols already, but right now I am afraid it will turn to another Virgin na Kankei. I honestly have no idea how to rate it so I leave it blank.

One more thing why Fumiko did not admit that he slept with that girl in the beginning while she was away for a month? He was totally convinced that he did it, plus why Aka punched him even when she though he was innocent. I did not get that part. That girl never admitted it was a joke. So he would not know the truth.

People keep on trying to look on the britghside, but there isin't any, you could ask any man in the streets, that if his wife or girlfriend, had a man have sex, or halfway sex whatever you want to call that, they would consider it cheating, even if she had faith on him coming to save her, there was no resistance at all, and at the end, the guy asks her to not tell her boyfriend, and at the end she dosen't tell him or feels anything after that day, so it makes me think "SO WHAT?" cheating dosen't need to be complete, it just has to start.

Good series, charming romance between two unlikely people.

People are raging at chapter 24 because they think Aka had sex with the other actor. people need read like 10 pages into the next chapter, you learn that they really didn't do anything. He saw that Aka's lack of resistance was because she believed matsumaru would come help her, and he stopped after stripping her down.

Great series, despite what the others might tell you. The nerd rage some folks have about Ch 24 is ... unsettling, to say the least.

It isn't as though the male protagonist din't pull off the exact same thing a few chapters back. It seems ... a bit sexist that a lot of people base their entire judgment of the series based on that sole chapter, ya know? It gives the impression that the readers of this manga are male supremacists and that infidelity is only bad if the guilty party is female. And before you ask: I'm a guy. Sure, it left a bad taste in the mouth to read it, but come on, the mangaka has to stir up some drama in the series, else there wouldn't be anything to read.

Anyway, the series tries to be original, at least. Unlike many other romance mangas where the protagonists have to wangst 3/4 of the series before they hook up, and then needlessly wangst some more after that; Aka and Matsumaru officially pair up fairly early in the manga, and the manga is more focused on the maintainance of their relationship rather than the building of it. The story is (mostly) light and humorous, with a few rather heartwarming scenes here and there. If not for certain ... aspects of the series, it would seem more like a shounen series than a seinen. Infact, the light tone of the series rather reminds me of Mahoraba, and if you're a fan of that manga, you're probably gonna enjoy this one as well.

After reading all these rantings of people droping at the legendary rage chapter 24...I just had to see it for myself so i jumped into it head first.
I put my two sense into this.
Nothing crazy happend really...Its just that the main heroine is...whats the word? An air head? But what do you expect from a seinen/mature. Comapring this to some of the rage i've seen in the past this is like disneychap.
SO basically in a nut shell: chp 24
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The heroin lets herself get stripped naked(no panties,no bra...all gone) ready to be ploughed through by another man whilst regreting it in her head? Why regreat it while letting it happen? Is she a F*&^ng retard/air head combo?

My two sense is that if you are planing to read it, do so and disregard what people say about chp 24 its not so bad. Bad...but its a freaking seinen. Come on.

I didn't like the premise to this when I heard about it. Part of that has to lie with how the japanese label too many people with varied job occupations as Salary Man. I imagined it was going to be about some level worker that got to date a voice actress when she started out. It sounded like the kind of nasty wish fufilment of some otaku comic. But the guy is actually in Marketing, and he gets a promotion at the start of the series.

One problem is the character design of the girl makes her look too young though. She looks 15 instead of 20. Her design seems more cartoony than any other character as well. I think this would have been a better manga is it was a bit more real. The girl is unrealistically emotional to me.

It's a sometimes funny serious. But the manga is surprisingly juvenile. At the start, there was nothing to indicate that the girl would be anything but regular. but then she turns out to be a virgin(before doing it with the guy), and then apparently she's all overly innocent. That's just bad characterization. Then the manga resorts to sex scares instead of any complex feelings or anything.

Manga is sequential art but sometimes the positioning of the panels makes it feel like I'm missing parts of the story. This has happend pretty frequently with this manga, it's odd.
