Plot.
This manga was enjoyable, but right when there should had been a climax, it just kind of went flop. It was building up to this great demon king thing and all of a suddenly it was just resolved just like that. It didn't really felt resolved at all. The comedy is good and the romance is adoring as well, but there's not much character growth. I think overall this storyline was a good concept but the ending just kind abruptly happened.

Characters.
Yes, everyone in this manga is out to rape the main girl, or falls for her. I mean there's nothing wrong with a reverse harem but it makes their love that much less meaningful. I do love all the guys though, they're so hot. And the girls characters are funny, cute, and strong as well, but the main girl suffers from the dimsel in distress disease. I do like how almost every character have their own monster/yokai slightly explained and portrayed in the manga. Overall, my favorite character is actually Hiyo's dad. He is the most mysterious one in the whole manga and I love his baby face! And in the ending he even had a black and white wing and had lived for ten thousands of years... Hmm, interesting. I also like Hitomi, Jiro, Vice President, and Yuki's character. And yes Kuro was hot but not well deepened. Hiyo is mainly the naive girl that relies on Kuro and bring a comedic relief here and there.

Overall not bad, but I've read better. 7/10

It was a good read and there are minor complaints and compliments like any other series.
The only thing is that the ending was so predictable that it can be guessed straight away as soon as the very first of the "foreshadowing" is shown. It isnt a terrible thing in itself but it seems like the mangaka thinks his/her readers wouldnt be able to guess it and then puts in so much hints and foreshadowing that even if you just barely skimmed the series you would know how it would end. Not only that but when it finally came to the ending, it was made so dramatic-like but since you already know what was going on there was literally no suspense at all.
P.S the ending wasnt bad, personally i liked it, it's just that i didnt like the fact i saw it coming and there was no way it would of been a surprise

Truthfully, this manga is only good to read on a rainy or a boring afternoon. There's hardly any character development. I actually read this a few years back and only now remembered to move this to my complete list while I was cleaning out my reading list. To be honest, this story has stuck with me, but only because some of the ideas and concepts are unique.
It has great similarities to Black Bird- tengus, youkai, etc. While Black Bird's heroine is a crybaby, this one is immature and is drawn so that she looks like an eight year old girl. This series drags out for a long time, and is kind of episodic (in my opinion). If you were only to read bits here and there, and just skip to the end, you wouldn't have missed anything.

It's never good but it's overall pretty enjoyable. There's a definite step up in quality around vol 3 and we get something close to a plot instead of just "Who's molesting Hiyo this chapter?"

Is it worth the read?

I would say, it's worth the read, but probably not worth the money. If you can borrow it somewhere, go ahead.

I've read much worse, but also much better. I enjoyed the read somewhat and it'll stick around with me for a while, but it wasn't anything... special either.
The ending doesn't really keep up with the rest of the series, so don't worry if you find yourself quitting halfway through, you're not really missing out on anything if it can't keep you reading at least that long.

I read this about 2 years ago, so in a way I have a soft spot for this manga. Recently, I've been going back and forth on this manga, randomly reading it. Although there is sometimes too much drama, it's a fun read if you have time. I might just be bias cause of my "soft spot" but overall, it's a decent manga. Nothing really memorable, but nothing overly bad, (except for the fact that the MC looks like a child, so the whole time, I was thinking,"PEDO!" at the guy) but it has some really good comedy scenes. smile

I love this story so much. I've already read the entire series at meat three or four times by now. The art is very beautiful, especially with the main characters Hiyo and Kurou. It is typical with the possessive lover and the girl with a special power who can win over anyone's heart with their smile or happiness. I did like to learn that they met before and Hiyo saved Kurou and that's why he's so willing to protect her. Although, he does is a little frightening when he wants to protect her, especially when he wants everyone to die and for the world to only have himself and Hiyo. But of course Hiyo talks some sense into him and all is well in the end. I think my favorite part of this manga is the odd yet romantic relationship between Hiyo and Kurou. It's like no matter what, they're always happy being around each other, even if they get made or annoyed at each other.

Some1 with delicate sensibilities might get offended or not like it Period.
Also the female lead is the submissive type.
But the story line is actually pretty good....I read it when I was 17 so dont know if I'd find it as good now, but I still remember liking this manga...so give it a try and see.

I rarely drop a manga, no matter how bad it is, because I don't think I can properly judge it unless I've read it to the very end. I stuck with this one for all 80-ish chapters and the opinion I formed after the first 5 chapters remained the same until the bitter end: this is a terrible story.

The female lead is a full blown idiot and while I can see how a ditzy lead character can be endearing or amusing, Hiyo's antics got old very quickly. Along similar lines, she has all of these men (boys) that are all head over heels for her, yet they are essentially attempting to rape her constantly -- but she holds no ill will towards them for it. It's horrible. Also, whenever the plot built up and came to a climax, each resolution was either unoriginal or just flat out stupid, and they would move onto the next ridiculous arc and repeat the same process over again.

The art was typical shoujo-esque and cute, and I had few problems with it until I began having trouble differentiating the male characters as more of them were introduced.

The moment I started reading the Chiya arc I just let out one long, drawn out sigh. Here comes this girl, completely out of nowhere, who decides that she is in love with her brother who she hasn't actually met before. She goes through a few chapters of drama and playing tricks on Hiyo, then after some more drama she decides that, even though she loves him, she won't be able to change his mind. Then just gives up.

Boring romance, stupid female lead turned uber Mary Sue

The only redeeming qualities of this manga are that 1) the art is pretty decent and 2) Osora (the main female) didn't immediately swoon when the man male said she was his fiance. In fact, she seemed pretty upset about it and constantly tried to ditch him. Unfortunately, since this is a bad shoujo manga, she did eventually fall for him.

It wasn't horrible until about the third time Osora was almost raped. I don't understand why the men at this school are so sex-starved and why they all concentrate on her. Osora is also dumb as fucking bricks, and not in an endearing way. The romance was hideously boring with a typical mostly impassive, stoic love interest, and the "monster" forms of the students are unimaginative.

What really prompted me to stop reading, though, was when Osora went full Mary Sue mode with her

snow-white crow wings and being some legendary being or something.
I just couldn't stomach any more after that.
