Description
From Aerandria Scans:

Souta, who's attending a confectionary school, is in a relationship with Saeko, a girl one year older than him. He fell in love at first sight with her four years ago, and right before Christmas last year, they finally had their first kiss. Because his girlfriend really loves chocolate, every day, Souta tries to polish his chocolate-making skills. Even when his girlfriend smells like cigarettes although she doesn't smoke, even when she turns down his invitation to a date on Valentine's day, he's still not broken-hearted at all, and he still continues to love her...

I'm really interested in this manga   
Rating: N/A

I'm not rating this manga because I was only able to read the first two chapters. But I still recommend it.
The truth is that the main character has delusional way of understanding love and he is not able to stop being infatuated with a girl. It doesn't matter if the real girl is totally different of the idealized girl of his imagination. But this is the kind of story the mangaka is telling. And I don't know if it is going to be a tragedy or if the protagonist is going to be able to grow up and have other way of understanding love. (But If I think in After School Nightmare and X-Day, the characters are able to grow up and understand more whom they are. Perhaps in this story the main character is going to overgrow a bit his flaws)
I disagree with the comment that says that this story is romanticising abuse. Mizushiro Setona explores human psyche in her works. And sometimes it can be very intense and dark: the characters darker elements are explored. But she does it in a realistic way. The actions of the characters have always consequences and they have good and bad effects in the other characters. It is a process of gaining knowledge through experience and healing themselves of their obsessions and worries. It is about gaining self-awareness.

The chocolates look delicious

Great characters, good art... Everything else is good, but there's nothing that really jumps out and grabs you. The series does get slightly better later on. But as of the scanlations released now, it's not extremely impressive. The plot is fairly unique, but not so much dazzlingly presented. Don't get me wrong; it's a great read. Mizushiro Setona really knows how to get the readers to feel the atmosphere of the manga. The romantic tension, the bittersweet feelings, and the sadness of it all... But it's not intense enough. Reading Shitsuren Chocolatier made me feel like I was watching a guy and his romantic life through a window. It doesn't draw the reader into the emotions of the manga like an excellent drama would. However, Shitsuren Chocolatier still is great, just not excellent.

But the chocolates look epic. I liked this series, but I liked the chocolates more. [However, I can't really rate the chocolates part in the story because I don't have a deep knowledge on chocolates. ): All chocolates look tasty...]

@TheAlmighty: Unfortunately, there are guys who have an obsessive love like that. And sadly, there are exceedingly stupid [and materialistic girls] like that out there too. I personally know a few in real life, too. But I've read up to volume 2 and on the way

Souta and another girl start going out. If I remember correctly, it was Kaoruko. Even though this series isn't categorized as smut on MU yet, I also recall a sex scene with Souta and Kaoruko in volume 2.

It infuriates me SO MUCH

It's ridiculous. No self respecting guy can go on loving a girl like that. In a twisted way, his obsession with her is amazing and if any girl were to be in that type of attention, she would feel flattered, if not creeped out, but then again there is always that one manga that does make creepiness look romantic and hot. But this. This is just taking it one step too far. If any one does like the main hero, the girl that he's obsessively in love with will be an instant turn off to the story.

Edit: @melon-ramune-freak
I've read up to vol 4.

I know he goes out with another girl. But it's just another tactic for him to aim for the girl he loves.
bascially everything he does is all for her and when I say everything, i do mean everything. While his tenaciousness is admirable, it's also infuriating.
And maybe this type of guy and girl exist in real life. but i just can't like a character like them in manga. as I said. self respecting. people like that don't have it in manga or real life. To be fair, the author's molding of his character is impressive, but nothing about it is appealing.

Heartbreakingly brilliant.

Honestly, I love this series. It's amazing.
As someone who's been wanting to become a chocolatier for the past five years, I honestly adore it. I can sort of relate to Souta - in a more adolescent fashion as I'm only 15 - because I was inspired to become a chocolatier after I was heartbroken by my first crush.

It's lovely. The art is ... - simple, but still lovely. It's not a work of art (but the food does look nice!) but it's very cute.

Aagh!! If Souta were real. And if were a few years older, I'd marry him.
