Interesting insights into Japanese Culture.   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

I found this manga very interesting from an anthropological point of view. The author uses the main character as a tool to explore the Japanese culture.
Being brought up in America made Chizu open to physical contact (hugging, kissing etc.), and side characters remark about her foreignness throughout the manga. Many of the things that were refreshing about Chizu - her ability to say what she feels, take action and be her own person - are dismissed by her friends, teachers or relatives.
For example, when she wants to work during the holiday she has to do it sneakily, without her relative's or her school's knowledge because it's banned. She wanted to be able to support herself through university, which was at odds with the school's idea that students should think only about their school work, and perhaps, because its expected that parents pay for their children through university.
Chizu was only "allowed" to act like she did because she was foreign; it was not out of place for her, being brought up in America, but if she had been brought up in Japan, her character would have been significantly different.
Maybe I am reading too much into this, but it really was quite interesting. The romance in the story is quite slow paced and idealised at the end, but nevertheless refreshing because of Chizu's character. It's a nice, short story with a realistic ending and a main character who is strong.

I love how the main character isn't the type of girl who doesn't say that she want, glooms about it, and doesn't know who to fight for herself against others. Yes, she isn't the smartest girl around BUT she is the BEST representation of an average girl smile Oh and she tackled the stupid Japanese made stereotype that all Foreigners from America kiss everyone who they know! NO ONE, in America and Canada kiss people they meet on the lips!~ That stereotype is for Europeans NOT Americans. )U_U(

the story don't really have any twist or exciting plot, but it is an enjoyable peaceful read. the characters are all normal cheerful people and there is no unnecessary drama. i don't enjoy shoujo with misunderstandings and unspoken feelings, that's why i love this because the main character is always forthright in her own feelings. right off the bat the guy know of her love for him. the art is classic soujo, but they are proportionate, uncluttered and appropriate for the story. a very good read.

It's cute and interesting, and I like Chizu, as well as the concept behind the manga. Still, I'm not completely drawn in yet... I guess because there isn't any clear plot movement as of Chapter 2. I guess I'm not really invested in her and her struggles yet.
The chapters also don't seem to be very cohesive in of themselves either (though I guess I'm a little biased because that's something I discovered that I loved in Oishii Kankei). There are interesting developments but no theme or idea behind them... But there are more chapters to come, and the events that are happening are interesting. It's not particularly great or thrilling, but it's interesting nonetheless... maybe soon I might be hooked.

I'm so happy to be able to read one of Yachi Emiko's manga, because it is on the list of upcoming project of wingtipcafe scanlation group. I gave ten without reading it, because of the author, but I will edit my review once i will have a chance to read it. Thanks to the scanlation group pick up this manga.
