I agree with the below comments, people who are pointing out the "Violence" are the very same people who turn a blind eye to 99% of Female on Male violence ...seriously hw is this to be treated differently than all those Obnoxious female leads who keep slapping and hurting their weak gullible male leads? i smell Hypocricy

anyways coming back to this manga, i thought it was really sweet and how they tried to play the Bride and groom part with lots of comedic essence added to it....the Characters evolve towards the end and i guess i am glad i stuck with it coz this is one of those Sweet Shoujos out there

Not much to rave about, it's pretty average in all aspects. In response to the people complaining about the slap scene and how it was domestic abuse I'd like for all of you to think about all the times a woman has slapped a man in manga, on tv, in movies, etc, if you had no problems with that, then you shouldn't have a problem with this because there is no difference. What has the world come to if it's only a crime if one gender commits it? Besides, by the time you are reading a manga like this you should know by then that hitting people in general is a no no.

But yeah anywho I'd recommend this to people who have some time to kill and not expecting much more than some decent artwork.

Is there a law that forbids making a shoujo or josei smut manga with a strong female lead? Yet another story about a weak girl who depends on her husband to literally save her. On top of being weak, the girl has no ambitions or goals other than to make her husband happy. and in return, her husband calls her an idiot and slaps her. sadly the manga doesn't treat this as a domestic violence issue, or even remotely hints that this is not how a husband should behave. so we have readers here who think this is normal and appropriate behavior. so sad...

It's interesting how people keep on commenting about certain scenes regarding Hokuto's treatment of Chiwa, but for me I was more aware of Chiwa's personality.

She just cries too much for me. It's like 3 out of 4 chapters she cries. Also, I don't think she has much backbone, despite the many shows of strength we've seen in her. I'm not sure if she's meant to be this "complex" character or if her character is just undeveloped.

In contrast, I was amazed with Hokuto's growth as a character. I think this is the reason I stuck until the end, along with the fact the ending wasn't rushed at all (even though there were a lot of stumbles in the middle of the series, but meh).

I might be biased, but first off, that art is pretty awesome and pretty. Don't tell me you didn't like the art, cause I sure did and I'm pretty picky when it comes to art when reading manga.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And about Hokuto slapping Chiwa... Well, what Enjouji Maki is trying to portray here is reality. You can't have Chiwa just slap Hokuto and him not be able to. I mean, just because this is shoujo doesn't mean she can't make Hokuto do that. She's trying to tell a story here and well, stories are based off of life so there. I was actually surprised when Hokuto first slapped Chiwa (LOL too much slapping here jk. I think Hokuto slaps her two times...) but then, I'm not mad. I mean, it just goes to show that a guy can hit a girl. It happens in real life, we can't ignore that.

Next off... It was dramatic with all the mystery with Hokuto's family background, but hey, it's not like orphans don't exist. But I hate his family, nuff said. So annoying, and I was expecting him to be the head of the company by the end of the manga but hey, Enjouji-sensei gave us a middle ground. He left the company but he decided to make his own company and have his wife work with him.


Then the sex fits into the story. That's what I like about Enjouji Maki's works. It's not like other smut manga I've read where they just slap on the sex wherever they decide to and not every chapter has sex in it.

And the humor in the story kinda cancels out the drama. It's a perfect balance, from how I see it.

I've actually read all her works in one night and it was all awesome. Any work from Enjouji Maki, I'd recommend to those who kinda like cliches but not really cliches... The ones where the overview of the story is a cliche but how she gets you there isn't.

i think the beginning of the manga started off phenomenally with all the romantic tension and stuff between chiwa and hokuto, and later on digging a bit into both of their pasts. later on, however, i started to get bored with all the random plot twists and so much angsting about hokuto's typical family drama. also, hokuto slapping chiwa just seems like character break. wtf enjouji-sensei. since when is that supposed to be acceptable by any standards. and chiwa's just supposed to accept and take it because she's his wife? thanks for encouraging submissive behavior in your female audience.

aside from that huge thorn in this manga, everything else was pretty decent. enjouji maki why do you ruin your good mangas with all this patriarchy bs?!

edit: to all the people who are like "ZOMG HYPOCRITES YOU ENJOYED CHIWA SLAPPING HOKUTO!!" since when did ANYONE say that? -_- no one needs to be slapped for any reason, much less a husband slapping his wife because she thinks she's being an idiot. that aside, what's even more infuriating is chiwa's response. instead of chewing him out, she conceded that she WAS an idiot and then spent the next couple pages/chapters crying over him possibly rejecting her blah blah. what?! in the beginning i believed chiwa had spunk and a backbone, but by the end of the series she was just another snively generic shoujo blob dependent on a dominating man. yawn.

I've finally reached the end of Hapi Mari and I couldn't be more content =D This is one of the best I've read, though I could've done without some of the twists and turns smh

I loved the characters. Chiwas was so adorable, and I could just gobble Hokuto all up!! But I could just kill those stupid Mamiya cousins. Grr!! But why was Grandpa so powerless. He's still head of the family... though he's old.

Hehehe The art was also very wonderful. It really helped the story.

One thing I hated though was..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
how could Hokuto not be his daddy's kid when they looked so much alike? I don't like that Enjouji sensie did that. It wasn't fair =(


I wish Enjouji sensei could've showed Chiwa's and Hokuto's child.. I bet s/he would be really adorable =)

What a nice reaaaaaaaad! It's really enjoyable and it reflects the reality somehow and I've gotta say, although sometimes I dislike Chiwa, but she's a nice character. She showed her strong personality and yet sometimes, she'll become weak again which is actually reflecting how we are actually are in real life. Sometimes, we feel as if we're really strong but sometimes, we've had enough and becomes vulnerable and had to depend on others. It's a nice personality. At least the mangaka didn't portrayed her as a strong or weak character all the way. That applies to Hokuto too!

Even men can become weak at times too. And I liked the plot and the twist! It's true that it's a pretty common romance story with the ups and downs like you've seen and read through other manga but at least in this one, there's a unique feeling in it. Not sure what, but it's definitely special. Maybe because of how the characters go along with the flow of the story. Anyway, it's a really nice read. All the conflicts were clearly explained and the ending wasn't rushed. It's good! :>

I'm not giving full mark, not because of some lack from the author but because the protagonists are soooo traditional : a good but annoying bride doing everything she can for her important husband. Ughh I hate that... I prefer people breaking habits smile.

That's because I recommend it. I more than enjoyed it XD Kind of re-read it, and I now finished it! Hokuto is definitely one of my all-time favorite shouju male lead. I LOVE LOVE the art, and of course Hokuto. It's a worth read story, good smut scenes and all. Made me laugh quite a bit too. Just read it, even if the ending is kind of predictable, it's still funny. I want more of them! But I'll be watching for this mangaka, which is weird for me, that's how much I loved it, from cliché scene to every not so cliché part. If you love shouju, this is the one for you!

PD. I didn't remember the scene some comments are saying until I read it. Maybe because from one chapter to another it took quite some time. But you'll forget it! And love Hokuto at the end, it's just fiction, let it go for the sake of the rest of the story.
