I started this manga with low expectations, since I wasn't too much of a fan of this mangaka. It started off like the usual - eye rolling, fluffy story with a cast of stereotypical characters. As the story progressed, however, the mangaka was able to add something more to the characters, and they felt a bit more complete.
Most of the manga was filled with ridiculous love triangles and that usual exaggeration of highschool life, but when it came to the end, it really managed to make the manga more serious despite the dumb elements the mangaka had added previously.
The ending for me, was really what made this a little more worth reading...but I could've managed just from the good humour in the manga.

It got better after some time
Though I read this like 2 years ago I can still remember that I totally enjoyed this in the end. At the beginning I thought that Miku was really annoying, because she had no patience with the guy and got mad at every single word he said... I couldn't really understand why she loved him if everything he said made her angry, but if I remember correctly she changed for the better and the manga didn't mainly consist of her always freaking out in the end. I have read far better mangas, but at least this one wasn't a waste of time and I didn't regret reading it.
This is the only- and I _MEAN_ only manga out of the 160+ I've read that I re-read, because it was so enjoyable and fun. 160+ mangas. Count 'em and weep, critics Wonderful read.
I must say, I truly did like it. I did.
It had the usual 'shoujo' elements and was rather predictable but the art was very pretty ^^
And, such LOL moments xD But, when they started going out, all the fun disappeared, and it was all sad and angsty.
They should've ended it with them going out, and it would've be far better. And, it wasn't even an official ending. They could've had a timeskip, so we see what happened to them, what job they have etc.
Worth a Read if you have plenty of time to spare ~

Nice but not the best
I really loved the first 3 volumes of this manga, but I felt the rushed and unfinished ending was a real let down, I enjoyed the beginning as the boy was completely clueless! but now when I go back to read it, I just don't bother finishing it because I feel that it wasn't completely complete.
Very funny lol
This manga is hella funny, I mean the style of drwain, its hilarious, its jst made me laugh... u know lol Anyway this series is pretty great, i enjoyed readin it altho im not satisfied with the ending. The endin turned out pretty sweet, but not that good tho. I hope the author will make a season 2 for this, like u know, bout the future... etc..wen she goes to M.U and therr both separate, lot of things could happen betweent em, the author could turn this manga into like much more awesome and perhaps longer.. u know... Anyway try and read it lol xD

If you need a pick-me-up....
First, Critiques: I didn't like the ending, the originality was basically non-existant, and the guy was too dumb to be believable
That aside, the art was pretty, and I found myself giggling at the expressions that the artist could draw. I'm a sucker for romantic shoujo, and while this doesn't reach the top of my list, it would still suffice if you needed something just plain fluffy. If you want a more intense/deep story, however, it's not for you~
It was really sweet. I... cried a bit. <.< >.> *hides in a corner* sigh. But her hallucinations and her imagination cracked me up. Fujioka...>.> Mm, what a dense boy sometimes, but I'm glad that he's trying really hard. [HUUUUGE SPOILER] I didn't really like the end, though. I usually don't like endings that have those "I'll still love you no matter where you are." Especially if they're young. But it did show how much he loves, her so it can be different. I'll use my imagination. [End of HUUUUUGE SPOILER]
I recommend to EVERYONE. *big thumbs up*
i like it alot!
hahaha i like this...i like it because it doesnt just end like YAY they are together..but it goes further into their relationship. what happens after graduation and their depth of love. the drawing is really cute too..i would so go for the guy!

lolx. as expected of a shoujo manga. love, stupidity, rivalry, angst and all that stuff.
Yeah the male lead does remind me of Otani from Lovely Complex. and he's friggin hilarious but so damn dense. i really like him. i especially like him when he's all pissed mode. xD
The female lead is an okay. most female lead in shoujo are "plain looking" type anyways. but this one isnt as annoying as some. so she's likeable. and has anger problems. lolx. i guess.
