Sixteen-year-old Nene Kashiwagi has undergone a transformation from a sporty girl to a chic one--or, at least, she's trying to become chic so that she can finally find love! Her efforts only gain her teasing from her (former) friend, Jun Endou. But when Nene's first attempt at finding love goes awry, Jun steps in to rescue her in the most unexpected way.

Breaks shitloads of female-centric masturbatory tropes. I find it ironic that all these people in the comments are flaming the guy for half-heartedly dating her while having ambiguous feelings for someone else, but that's literally the plot of 90% of love triangle shoujo.
Girl wants to see guy smile. Guy like other girl that robs him of smile. That's it. It's the basic "second guy wins" with the genders flipped.
This really is HORRIBLE!!!! Don't waste your time on this.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I started hating the male lead after he kept telling the female lead you'll never get a boyfriend or pretty much saying she's not cute. I can deal with the whole 'bully the one you love' , but there was no love being hidden in what he was saying. Getting pass this initial dislike for the male lead it then turned to loathing the female lead. In what world is it fine to go out with a guy who only 1/2 heartily likes about you? Having both of them agree on going out when he only 1/2 heartily invested just brings more disgust. I probably would have liked this better if she ended up with that quite guy Keisuke Kanemara. I honestly was hoping it would end up like that, but no such luck.
This is what I would call a F-ed up romance that teens somehow think is wonderful when it's just pathetic, irritating and horrible.(Was making a reference to a certain movie(s)/book(s) that ruined the vampire genre.) How could you call this a romance, I'm not even sure. It just seemed like an obsession one can't let go. To sum everything up- it's bad, I wouldn't recommend anyone reading this.

bad, bad, bad
one of the worst shoujo mangas i've ever read. the story line is irritating and the characters are pathetic. and yet i finished it because i wanted to see how it would end - there really are no redeeming qualities to this manga.
Such a disappointment
The first chapter (especially because of Nene) was great and that's what made me read the rest of the manga but I didn't expect the rest to be so disappointing. I'm frustrated about the fact that the guy is VERY indecisive and in the end, it was all Nene that had the courage to get their relationship back together. I'm angry about Jun not putting too much effort into their love. He's so stupid. He doesn't deserve Nene at all. Izumi was dumb too.
Really are you serious The heroin in love with the hero and he can't even desaid if he like her or the other girl and she reservation is okay with this!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean come on what girl will want than even if she is in love If you have time to kill this one will be okay for you I didn't like it much but I gave it 5 because of the art
Good Art but Forgettable Plot
Good art, though it'd be nice if Jun and Nene could do more character development. They're still largely two-dimensional. I don't blame the author, though, considering it's only 8 chapters long.
Izumi had potential, but because there wasn't significant resource devoted to explaining her behaviour, she becomes more a plothole and liability than an intriguing spin.
In general, it was a forgettable read. Jump in if you're bored and have a few hours to burn, or if you're desperate to increase your complete list count.

At first, even though the plot was pretty cliche, it was an alright read. But since the manga was so short it wasn't developed well. The rushed job made it hard to really get a feel for the characters and though you can piece together an idea of how they felt it really isn't enough to connect with them.
The characters were unlikeable and since we didn't get enough background or an omniscient understanding of their feelings it was hard to excuse them for their behavior. You can speculate about why they acted the way they did but you can't forgive them for it. All in all it was just an unsatisfying read.
Can'tquite put my finger on it...
You could say this is an average love story. But the drama is interesting. The characters are likable... dunno, there's something that makes it feel not quite there.
It wasn't a waste of time but I wish there had been something more... though I don't know what it is >_<
Overall, it was a good manga, but it felt incomplete. The ending was a bit.. unsure. You don't know whether the relationship will survive, 'cause of that expression Izumi expressed. If the guy's feelings were to be confirmed in the 'pretend' next chapters, maybe i could have rated this manga higher.
Err. What's with that? Not romantic at all. Read Strobe Edge, although the guy there has someone he loves at the first chapters of the manga, it was still romantic unlike this one.
