Should I be laughing?
This oneshot was amazing! It wasn't like the typical girl falls in love with guy then tries her hardest to confess to each other thing, but kinda like...they chase each other to -kill?- each other. It's fast-paced and cute, but not too fast, nor too cute until it's like a shoujo storyline (though its shounen) The ending was plain weird and funny, too. Worth a read! Too bad it's not a serial
You'd think that a one- shot would be really fast-paced or make you want to scream for more. This one- shot was amazing in my opinion. The atmosphere of the characters was just perfect. The ending made you perfectly satisfied with the story.
It's not one of those romances with two flustered teenagers trying to share their love confessions. Sorachi Hideaki mixes romance with comedy which he does really well. The concept of the boy being in love and that love quickly disappearing when she vows to kill him. Once she disappears, he thinks he can rest easy, but once again she shows up in his life and this time, she's a trained assassin!
People may not get what just happened after their done reading, but that's the best thing about this one-shot, it makes you think about it. The chemistry between these two was perfect. Sorachi Hideaki portrays their relationship with a small cute romance and a whole lot of comedy. So, if you want a romance with heartfelt love, this is not the one for you. But, if you want a romance with violence, delinquents, and comedy this is the right one for you.
This Was... Umm... Something...
I'm not even entirely sure what I think of this one-shot, to be honest. I wonder why I'm writing a review for it? LOL
It was interesting, that's for sure! It kept me wondering right through, which is a welcome change from so many one-shots that are so predictable. I'm still not entirely sure what happened at the end, though... and oddly enough, I think that's mostly because the ending is slightly open-ended and I really just don't even know how I'd WANT this one to end. I'm... a little confused.
As if you couldn't tell!
honestly? its interesting
whoa, i just finished this, and well, just whoa. totally unexpected. I thought it'd be about some girl who set to kill a man and just happens to fall in love with him and then she'd stop being an assissian and THE END
this is nothing like that. this story was... i don't think there are words for this. overall, i think its confusing in some parts but a good manga. its not your typical "romance" labeld manga. if your looking for something different, then you've found it. i enjoyed it, i hope you do too,
p.s. i think theres something missing tho... like there should have been more. but thats what you get for reading a one shot, right?

I'm Still Wondering Why Isn't this a Series?
I first read it when it was release in Jump SQ I laughed so hard I almost cried. I understand he is working on Gintama and maybe thats why this isn't a series HAHAHA
i mean there are parts that i dont get but...
the more the characters act serious it only gets more an more hilarious!!! god this is so funny...
there relationship and feeling is just so weird in too many aspects...
One of the first oneshots I ever read. And I still think the same about it: It is really good. Few works have managed to pack such a story (of course not completed) into 37 pages and be a good read.
It's storyline is quite unique, having a mixture of both real and fictional features, but the result is an enjoyable oneshot. Some may argue that it's too much to read, but hey, how else can you develop the plot if it's a oneshot? The only drawback is that the story was never finished, so it was left hanging for everyone to get their own interpretation. If you like oneshots this is something you might find interesting.
Should I be sad or just keep laughing?
If you haven't read this yet I'm saying this right now. the main guy is an idiot. now that that's out of the way. This manga was like a train wreak but I couldn't stop watching...or reading as the case may be. Only a select few will find this really good. I'm among those. but the others will prolly not have finished it. I like the characters (The chick is the best!) but I'm not particularly bias against any of them. Yes, I know I just contradicted what I said, but I mean you're the one wasting your time reading this. Not my problem.

I'm quite surprised that this is a one-shot. It could be expanded as a short series, but nonetheless it worked as a one-shot anyway. The characters are not entirely exceptional, but main characters' relationship is funny to read. The few pages before the ending was a bit too peppered with text, but it still worked somehow in the very end.
It's a good break if you've been reading typical high school shoujo manga for a while.
Should've been a series instead of just a oneshot. I think with this plot it could be really cool as a series. But, as a oneshot, it seemed too short and never really concluded, but otherwise I liked it.
