i normally like slice of life romance like this... but the two main characters didnt really have an affect on each other beyond what happened at the beginning. No chemistry i guess. No interesting or even cliche dialogue between them. Specifically there was no dialogue between them indicating what they might enjoy about each other. At least thats what it felt like to me.
this is one of the best drama free relationship manga ever. everything is so airy and light, im giggling throughout the chapters. there's nothing to it except sweet interactions, and great for anyone who want o unwind after a stressful day.
Older woman, younger man, apartment life alll in a good mix
I was looking for a romance story with age difference set in a complex when I luckily discovered this one. I was initially weirded out by the random and whimsical stuff that are stored in Bonnouji (the name given to the male lead's unit) but those things aside I think the bond that the leads share is very refreshing. What I liked best about this series is how it didn't drag on with the awkward stage of a getting-to-know relationship. When the relationship came in full circle, there were even more interactions to look forward to than to get tired of. This is a great romance manga for an easy sit-down read.
greet work !!!
I read a lot of mangas day by day and I read them quick, somehow lightly. But if i found a good one, then i save it to my PC and read it over and over countless time. Yeah, i can't enjoy mangas deeply at first time I read, not my character. But i can feel them better and more better in times later.
Yeah, I never erase this manga over my PC. So pure, so idotic but also very realistic mature in my opinion. You'll never get tired of it. Save this, and some time having a good time with
a bad side, may be you don't have enough patient to wait new released. this's really good one with complete seria. lucky me
Sweet, simple, Refreshing.
I adore this manga. It's a simple, sweet romance with an episodic style. The series revolves mainly around the main couple, with two side characters included in the cast. I loved how the story was drama-free, and so pure! Always left me with a smile after each chapter. It also had it's hilarious moments. Pacing was good as well. It didn't feel rushed at all, although I was a bit sad when it ended! I feel like there could be a sequel .
My Ideal Boyfriend
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm totally loving Oyamada!!! He is such a kind, understanding and lovable boyfriend. I love how he genuinely treasures Ozawa. My favorite lines from Oyamada that made my heart skip a beat are
Ozawa: I have this feeling things will change if we get married... I know it sounds stupid. We're at the right age, after all.
Oyamada: "If we get married, well I guess something will change."
Ozawa: Ah. Right.
Oyamada: "Your surname" >.<
Oyamada :" I don't intend to ever leave you so... well, I don't anything will change between us if we get married someday"

This manga is really pure, not innocent, but pure. Its sooo adorable and just goes with the flow. I love all the characters and their weirdness (especially the fact that we don't really know what the brother looks like. Lol.) Can't wait to finish it.
It's not made to last longer
Its strength relies on how simple it is: there aren't forced interactions, it's all comedy and the romance is likeable. As the manga goes on, however, I feel a little detached from the characters, and I think there's nothing more to say for this manga right now.
The story of the world's most adorable couple
Bonnouji is just so effortlessly cute. Usually, romance manga force feeds the reader love in a "I'M ADORABLE, GOSHDARNIT!" kind of way, but Bonnouji just lets two people live their lives, and the end result is ridiculously charming. Bonnouji is realistic. It has great pacing and doesn't dillydally with forced, cliched conflict (for example, having an ex show up right after the main couple gets together). I also love the way the mangaka parallels Ozawa and Oyamada's relationship with the development of Oyamada's room, the eponymous bennouji. It's just a cool little metaphor, and the mangaka handles it really well, so I thoroughly appreciate it. Overall, this is a great slice of life romance. Super adorable and funny. Great work.

Calling this manga 'boring' would be an overstatement. It's like the day to day, thoughts and feelings of the characters and how they progress. While the plot is just really simple and neat, it avoids cliches. Not exactly 'refreshing' though- just a change from the common shoujo we read.
I wasn't crazy over this manga, but it did have somewhat of a realistic touch, and I guess that's the part of it that I liked.
