Description
The heroine is named Kinoshita Sakiko. She is 20 years old, and a college student. She is totally in love with her 28 year old university professor, Chifyu-sensei. He is tall, moody, and handsome, with short dark hair and sexy eyes. Unfortunately for Sakiko, he always refuses her very aggressive displays of affection. Yet she never gives up. Even when faced with a housing crisis, Sakiko goes to drastic lengths to earn money so she can stay in the area and continue her pursuit of her teacher. However Sakiko isn't very bright when it comes to making money. She actually tries to sell herself on a street corner!! But her price is too high, and no one is interested. Then she meets a guy on the street named Natsuo. He is also really cute, with long blond hair. He is interested in Sakiko, and after one really great kiss, he takes her to his apartment. Things are starting to get steamy when they are interrupted by the arrival of Natsuo's brother. Guess who it is?

i've never really been a fan of Yoshihara Yuki but i thought i'd give this manga a try as it came with such a wide spectrum of comments. other commentors have dubbed the protagonist as 'slutty' but before that i think she falls under the label of 'desperate'. If the main character fails then the surrounding story tends to collapse as well. also, 'i like you, i like you, i like you' is not enough to justify her (fluffy yet somehow...) stalkerish and obsessive behavior.

there are several other elements that might be deemed unsavory depending upon how seriously you read into your manga... however considering the actual content itself: soap opera cheesy with almost as many cliches, bland dialogue, desperate female (wannabe succubus) and chibi characters that ... although kinda amusing/kinda freaky... sometimes ruin the mood and reset everything back into *groan* mode.

*Sensei i like you so i want to touch you* repeated 5 times or more every chapter with teary bug eyes and so many poorly mixed signals that it could give you a stomach ache.

well... i only progressed to chapter 4 (because i'm a trooper (or is it a quitter?)! eheh) so if there's a review that extends beyond that i suggest you pay it more consideration than mine. If you're curious and want a brainless read (we all need a bit of brain-dead relaxation, no?) then you might check this out. Some parts are unexpectedly funny but not enough to keep the plot from staggering off into the woods.

I think it's rather dissapointing...the plot i mean. The female heroine is dumb and slutty, she's just a passing toy for both brothers. Moreover the older bro is naive and indecisive (keep making an excuse he had a wife, while eventually did ecchi stuff with her). Not the best of Yoshihara San's work sad

If it weren't for the comedy, I wouldn't want to continue reading this. Dropping the comedy, you'll get...adulterer, slut, no-brainer, wanting-to-slap-the-crap-out-of-this-stupid-girl, etc etc etc.

On top of that, toward the end of the manga, the author tried to make a better situation for the heroine, but I figured it was the author's attempt to TRY to justified the heroine's actions.

So this is your typical extreme-love-extreme-hate manga. If you want to read it for the smut and for comedy, this is for you. But if you want a realistic manga without having wanting to kill the heroine within the 1st chapter, I suggest you drop this and read something else.

What I don't like about this manga? The fact that Sakiko persistently chases after a married man, even wanting to become his mistress. Okay, so Chifuyu divorces his wife because his wife was having an affair with another man and he accepts Sakiko's love. That's fine. I don't mind that part. BUT just imagine if Chifuyu's wife is a loving wife and is devoted to him. Won't Sakiko feel guilty for chasing a married man and even wants to become their mistress?!

That's kinda screwed up isn't it?! I know it's fiction and it's not real, but sometimes what we read happens in real life as well you see. Not to mention that she actually slept with Chifuyu's younger brother just because she was a little heart broken. This manga is like telling the girls that it's fine to chase after a married man and become their mistress. Seriously. I'm not kidding at all. This kind of thought is really screwed up.

That aside, the manga is quite funny and hilarious. Especially Sakiko's monkey faces. But I still don't agree about the "chasing a married man" fact. Just imagine those woman who are divorced because their husband cheated on them and saw this manga...I think they're gonna burn this manga and sue the mangaka and the company.

It's so funny and cutely perverted!!^^
I really like the mangaka's style. Her mangas are so funny and cute with a perverted touch to them *Makes me laugh all the time^^* though the chars look alike....
But sadly, it is short...((

Yoshihara-sensei is probably one of my favorite artists. Her characters are always well-develop, her plots are always simple, and she never ceases to make me laugh.

But, truth be told, I'm not really crazy about this one. Although it shares some similarities to Itadakimasu, the latter is just a little bit more bearable for me. Had the love triangle excluded that one particular complexity, then I would have been able to appreciate it more.

This is probably the only series that I've read by Yoshihara that I didn't completely like, but I won't deny it's fun factor and classic Yoshihara humor either.

Um...I usually love Yoshihara-sensei's stuff (because of the complete and utter crack), but this series just didn't do it for me. Sakiko, what were you thinking?

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Losing your virginity to your love interestís younger brother, and proceeding to practice sex techniques with him while still claiming to be head over heels for the love interest? That's kinda....


Strangely enough, I loved the character design. Their personalities were pretty good, and they were quite comical. Had that central plot been a little different, I would have loved this story just as much as sensei's others. I know that Sakiko was made out to be a straight forward "go-getter"-type heroine (and most of the time I really loved her for that), but *sigh*...really now. I was a little disappointed. I'm not even going to lie.

Like I've said, I don't hate this series. It was actually very good, and Yoshihara'sensei is just as thorough as ever. This one series just wasn't my thing. That's just my opinion though. Nothing more

Normally I love Yoshihara's work I love that it's normally light hearted and funny. They keep a smile on my face nearly the whole time I'm reading them.
But this one makes me a little sad and angry.
The main-character is a girl that you would normally hate in a manga. Wanting the man to leave his wife and interfering in his life anyway possible and constantly trying to seduce him.
I think this is an okay manga but it definitly isnt one of my favorites especially under the curcumstances.

Drawing is just too good, especially in the moments with those caricature faces, it's really hilarious, it makes me laugh really hard and sincere! Droopy eyed brothers! x) It really keeps my attention, it isn't boring, everything is done farcially. From my point of view, one fine shoujo comedy manga, I would recommend it to everyone who needs some laughter after so many tragedies and broken hearts in other shoujo plots. smile
of course, as mentioned before, heroine is quite a brainless character, so maybe you'll be annoyed by that fact. Just try not to get the story too serious, because then it loses its real purpose, to make you laugh, so stupidity is allowed!

I'd have wished if by in the middle, she fell in love with someone else.

Edit:
I still stand firm about wanting the main protag to change her mind and fall in love with Natsuo who really loves her. But I guess since it's done with...we can't do anything about it.

The story was unbelievable from the beginning, I guess...So from then on you can't really ask for anything serious to happen. Besides...the main protag was a dumb naive idiot from the beginning...I hate to admit it... /sigh. Of course in the real world, whatever she does won't really work...so /sigh. I don't even know what to say anymore. I'll just get on with the rating.
