Know what to expect, before reading it

First of all this is a shoujo manga, so of course it's filled with cliches. Being a long series, also means the romance will be slow to happen (8 volumes, to be exact), not to mention love triangles, and at least a few misunderstandings. The good news? None of these things will make you want to stop reading it, but rather it adds to the character development. Would it have been better, had the main characters, been more forward about their feelings from the start? You betcha! But then it would have gone against their personality/past experience.

Now that you have been warned, here is the bonus about this series....After they confess their feelings for one another, it's smooth sailing for them. It becomes more a slice of life, which is one of my favorite parts. Also, not only do you get a full HEA at the end, but you have a whole volume dedicated to it. Thereby tying any loose ends without feeling rushed. The side characters are quite hilarious throughout the series, which helps A LOT too.

I felt the need to give this a nine because of the warm and fuzzy feelings it gives me.
Ageha has a certain charm to her. Well, all the characters have charm to them. No matter how cliche or perfect they seem, they couldn't fit their roles better. They're memorable and distict. This manga is extremely character based, so if you don't like that then turn away now.



It has a unique art style; clean and lovely <3
Yeah, the guys look like chicks, but I don't mind that. (When you read as much shoujo as I do, you get used to it.)

If you're looking for a good shoujo, and don't mind a bit of cliche, then I recommend this.

I love this manga and I cant wait for more (updates)^ ^ This manga is adorable and is recommended to all shoujo lovers. The art is nice and the dresses are detailed!! The manga is a slow romance, I agree it is a bit cliche, but a lot of things are unpredictable as well as predictable. This manga shows amazing character growth, and each of the main characters has a detailed back story!! You'll definitely love it!

Everything about this manga is beautiful, the story,art and the romance.
I recommend this manga to all shoujo lovers out there. This manga is definitely a must read beacause all the characters are lovable,and the romance is slow and sweet. There are some cliche scenes but there are way more unpredictable scenes. Every side charcters has their own story but it doesn't steal any spotlight from the official pairing.

If you love character growth in a story this manga is for you.

this latest chapter is an extremely poor translation.

I'm so disappointed as thought this would be finished a couple years ago and it's taken so long and still 2 tankobon left and now very poor translation.

The art was what really drew me to this manga, though the plot and humour got me pretty good too. Ageha and Yukari's romance is, personally, pretty overdone, though; what I really liked were the angst-ridden bits between Mitsuya and Tsuyu and I'm slavering for more of that (in the next chapter!). I'd say that Ageha and Yukari aren't the strongest characters of this manga, not that any of them stand out particularly - but it is specifically this vivid cast of characters that is V.B. Rose's strength and lure. Basically a showcase of sweet, fluffy shoujo cliches Hidaka-sensei manages a fresh spin on it using her gorgeous art and gift for not-too-saccharine romance, and I can't wait to see more of it.

I love this series. The art is clean and beautiful. I've read to vol 4 and the story is well done. Not the average manga romance. Very sweet and the comedy is great!! If you love fashion, weddings and romance, pick this one up.

Shouldn't Sekai de Ichiban Daikirai be put in the 'related series' category? Yes the main character isn't directly related to it but there are a few characters from Sekai de Ichiban Daikirai that are in this series, included the main character from it.

I love this series, need to catch up on it, it's story and humor caught me from the very beginning.

Well I haven't read the whole story yet, so I may still change my mind, but I love it. The romantic plot line is very cliché, I'll admit, but the overall storyline is very good.
In some parts I'm noticing a few resemblances with Kare Kano, but there's always something that reminds us of something else when we read one manga, right?

Yukari and Ageha are a brilliant couple, and a handsome one at that. (I'm not going deny my heart skipped a beat when I saw Yukari for the first time - I know, I fell in love with a 2-D fictional character :s)
I was amazed when I saw Maki and Kazuha - I adored Sekai de Ichiban Daikirai - but to find them here? I had to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming or not.
I certainly was not disappointed.

But if I had to recommend this to any shojo lover, READ IT. The art is simply beautiful, and it's something every romantic will love. ^^
