It was good, but the ending was disappointing. You can't even really call that a final chapter - it didn't have an 'ending' feel to it at all. I felt like the mangaka just got bored and decided, "Hey, you know what? I don't feel like making another chapter. I know! I'll just do a bunch of side-stories instead!
When almost half of the manga is side-stories and oneshots, you know it can't be very good.
I was looking for a short romance and the description sounded good. I get tired of all these mangas that are listed as romance but they end up with no romance at all. This is about a popular girl who starts playing pool with an anti social male and they become best friends. Thats about all there is too it. I thought it would lead to romance, but it's about friends ship and playing pool. It's wasn't very interesting at all.
i agree there was nothing to call and ending to it story started out grate and was up to like 1 volume, the rest turned out to be only sides stories in volume 2!
and here i thought it was going to be something good.
Not the Best
It's a quick and short read that would be recommended to those who have time to kill. The plot seemed rather... incomplete. There wasn't much of a complication nor a resolution, and that was the downfall of the manga. A cute and fluffy read - best for shoujo lovers or those generally a fan of Sakai Mayu's works. The art is quite good, although not developed as her later works.

Hmmm... yet another story that deserves a review. There is so little romance in this title, makes one wonder, "Is this really a shoujo?!" This is my first try on Sakai-sensei's work and... I am not planning on reading more of that at the moment. felt... a hunger for romance. This is the first time among the shoujo mangas I've read though.... Ah~ I hope she try her best!
Not That Great
I won't go and say that it's a waste of time... but it wasn't great at all. The artwork was cute, and so were the characters, but there was no plot. I found no point to the story, and no romance to back up the plotless-ness.
It's cute, though in a pathetic way. Not really a manga worth going crazy over. I'm giving it a two for the artwork alone.

not the best
its not a manga that you would get interested in but the art is really great. its not a fast paced plot and there's no antagonist. its basically one of those happy-go-lucky mangas. again the art is great <---deserves 5/6 of my rating
I really love the drawing it's so cute but the story is really lame. Don't waste ur time reading it!
