From Viz:

Miku Yamada has a longtime crush on classmate Kyohei Fujioka. But no matter how many times she tries to show him how she feels, clueless Kyohei just doesn't get it.

- Includes other stories:

Okosama Brat
Taishi stays at Rie's house because his parents work overtime. Rie thought that he was actually her real brother! Now, Taishi says that she's "idiotic now and then". People think of Taishi as cool and mature, but Rie knows that he's just a brat inside...

Sono Saki no Sweet
Hidaka Mao was confessed to by her crush Chihiro-kun in junior high, but as soon as they started going out, she became unable to communicate with him. She is still confused about her feelings, but will this year's Valentine's day bring them together again!?

i guess it's kind of predictable because you'll know they'll end up together but it has it's own twists. Kyohei kinda reminds me of otani from lovely complex of how dense and stupid a guy can be. lmaO! but in the end otani decided his future but i didn't know kyohei's. But it's a really good manga

This is as typical as any shoujo manga can get. It's so obvious at times that you can just gloss over the pictures and still get it. I'm quite disappointed. If you've read at least 20 shoujo mangas so far, then i'll guarantee you that you'll get bored. Fast.
Do not read the manga. It's a complete waste of time, unless this is the first shoujo manga that you will read.

This is a really cute manga about a somewhat dense (when it comes to love) but sensitive guy (when it comes to feelings). I really like the character of this naive, child-like, innocent fella - he really touched my heart. The girl, miku's a typical straight As student who takes her work seriously. Although Miku's been loving Fujioka for quite some time, i think she can't help but compare him with others.. which i find so unfair for fujioka.. sigh.. i feel for him... and i hope they'll understand each other better.. and end up together..

this manga is so cliche it hurts. it has all the cliche things. popular guy but dense as feck and in this case he is also dumb. stupid who is in love with him who was plain but did her best to become beautifull and so the list goes on and on and on. this is just some sucky manga that gets boring after the first 5 pages of chapter 1. you can just look at the pictures without reading it n you know what happens so predictable is this manga.

The cliche dense guy and the girl that is infatuated with him... I know that most of the time "love is blind" but this one takes the cake for that saying.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Usually you can see characteristics in the characters that will help the reader identify why the main character likes them. There are some but mostly I just saw negatives. Anyways in the end it just seems like the plot was half-assed. Random rivals are introduced then disgarded after they are done advancing the plot. The ending didn't make me feel that this was romance either.
