It's cliche and stuff but the art just got me hooked! (:
And the funny faces of the characters are really great hahaha. I like this story m________m~
Ugh, spare me..
Typical, boring, predictable... the only thing that kept me reading until I gave up on chapter 3 is the male lead, Kousuke, but I think I was hoping for the impossible. The characters are flat thusfar, and the heroine is one of the most... She's a terrible heroine with no redeeming qualities. She seems like one of those shoujo girl types who trip a lot, are clumsy, tear easily, etc. Sigh~ extremely boring, my eye was twitching every two pages. The art style is fine for the most part, clean lines and all, except I really despise the heroine's eyes; so large, so shoujo-ish, are they supposed to telegraph her 'innocent' and 'lovable' nature?

What's wrong with people?
I thought this was really great! I love how the story is going. I thought the male characters had a refreshingly nice personality, and the art was the really nice. I like how the story is cute yet still serious, it reminds me a lot like "Girl Got Game" My only qualm at all about this is it kind of focuses on the relathionship drama too much, and Hotaru could stand to be a little less inoccent... But I still think it has a lot of charm. Oh well, to each their own, huh?

Im Aikawa Saki-biased. No matter how cliched it is, I will definitely love it.
Gahhh. Im speechless. The way Aikawa Saki draw her characters are really really prettyyyyyyyy omg it makes the story alive. lol
I stopped after 15 pages, including the cover, of the first chapter. I gave it a try because many people complimented the drawing, and after all, I think I am a person who can stick to a series just because of the art style. However, I was very disappointed. The drawing is not bad, yet it is a very stereotypical way of drawing manga: girls with HUGE, shining eyes that look fake and show little emotion, guys with pointy chins (imo, the guys were drawn a little better but still not in a very manly way)...
May be I am too harsh? I will leave it up to you to decide. But, personally, when hearing about good art, I will think about something more like drawing styles of Maruya Kae, Hinako Takanaga, or Mamahara Ellie, which are way more unique and distinguish the mangakas well. Well, if there is anything that might save the drawing style of this manga, then it is the chibi images. Ratings: Plot: N/A (not patient enough to read more than 15 pages) Art: 7.5/10 (not good, not bad, typical, the .5 is for the chibi drawings)

typical... but loving it
this is shoujo manga it is extremely predictable but i love it the characters are cute and likeable, especially the Haruna brothers i cant help but swoon when they're there ^/////^ the heroine does cry quite a bit, but it definitely could be worse
and its soooo cute, you just cant help but continue reading cause everything's so cute
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
especially when Kousuke is trying to get Hotaru to forgive him :3
but if you're looking for something original dont bother reading this

So far it's going well...
There isn't much to complain, the story is as expected for a shoujo, while the characters are dynamic with their own idiosyncrasies. I keep hoping for more interplay between Haruna-sensei and Hotaru, espically since Kousuke keeps putting the needs of his ex-girlfriend ahead of Hotaru....

It's pretty cheesy at some parts yes but her art style really nearly always gets me hooked. I hate it when the girl always cries tho and the guy and his brothers is always having to comfort her but I still love the other characters. It's definitely a Shoujo manga alright.
I love this series!!
i'm one who loves the typical shoujo manga cliches though. i absolutely love the artwork in this! and all of aikawa saki's mangas! its such great art and the story is really good! it keeps me entertained. i just wish it would get more chapter updates so i can finish this series! D;
update: OMG. REALLY?! thats it?? That was the ending? The ending sucked! It was so rushed and so stupid...it was a good story and she could've made the ending amazing, but it was a terriable ending. i'm disappointed.

Focus shifted from triangle to obstacles
This one started out promising and even continued on the same tangent, a girl torn between an obviously unattainable love for her sensei, and a one sided affection from his younger brother, her classmate. I mean the ending was predictable to many, but it was fleshed out decently.
I'm not saying this story exploited its full potential in the least, because it didn't and not least of which was because this female lead has to be one of the most god damn annoying hicks out there who is constantly given to impulses, insecurity and indecision. But possibly to keep this cash cow going, Aikawa Saki started on a completely different trajectory once the love triangle is resolved. And she does it in a most boring manner. I felt the pacing and drama just went all over the place after chapter 15 or so, so if you're really keen to read this, I recommend you stop reading after the love triangle resolution.
