Excellent character development. It keeps me wanting to read more. Not forgetting to mention that it's also an outstanding josei/shoujo manga of the strong-heroine-vs.-possessive/emo-princely-boyfriend genre, lol (^^)b

edit: After reading further, I think it tends to repeat similar incidents, and the routine is already starting to get old. So I would say, it's exciting until around volume 6~7, but I think the series should just go straight back to the main plot now rather than keep repeating the cheesy love-love parts.

After reading the first chapter, I couldn't help but ask for more. Give this a try... at least read up to chapter 9 *melt melt melt.* It's funny and wow... the sexual tension is amazing. I can't wait to see how this series ends!

Ah the beauty of conjugal love!
(should I really be saying that?)
hehe, really, it's indeed a lovable manga about a married (sort-of) couple, no?

Anyway, as someone who usually dislikes smut this is actually really well written and characterized. It is hot but also unexpectedly heartwarming at times (and has good humor!).

I love Enjouji Maki's work. The mixture of the comedy, romance and smut make the sweet result of a really worth-reading manga. Thanks for Enjouji Maki sensei's work that we could have a great time reading great masterpiece. ^^

i love this manga. I've watched series of dramas and mangas about pretend marriage but this manga is my most favorite. the plot is, well, two-thumbs up! the art is very good also. you tend to compare Hokuto to other characters of the story and will realize that he is good-looking. Chiwa looks plain at first, but you'll turn to love her and find her cute throughout the series.
It's hilarious and worth reading. I recommend to those people who wants to giggle about love and humor.

I think this is a very good plot to work with. Two people who marry for the wrong reasons end up falling in love later. The art work is appealing and the guy is hot enough to trigger a woman's fantasy. I am excited about this project because there arent enough mature romance mangas in josei catagory. The tint of smut makes it ever so more appealing!! This has great potential and I really hope it lives upto it. The crucial element for good smut is to paint the right background. The development of romance has to be there and the mangaka has to take her time giving the characters enough depth that the reader gets absorbed in their world. So I really hope this series goes in that direction.
This mangaka has Private Prince in her previous works, so it gives me hope that this series could be long. So I would say the series is good so far and shows promise.The chemistry between the main two characters is really good!! I hope this series carries on for a while. There aren't enough series like this out there so I am definately rooting for this one!!

Wow. I like romance and I love sexual tension, and jesus does this manga have both. Yeah, yeah, it's cliched and unrealistic and some of the shots of them kissing make me wonder if that's even comfortable.
But the potential of this manga is overwhelming. The drawing is great (and Hokuto is so hot he burns into my retinas). It's not artistic, but then again, that isn't the point.
So far there have been a few overused plot devices, the marriage being one of them. But what saves this from becoming a wet dishy sop is Enjouji-sensei's excellent characters. While both Hokuto and Chiwa are stereotypical to a slight extent, they both seem alive and a little unpredictable, in a good way. Hokuto, for example, doesn't really seem to care for Chiwa, but as time passes his feelings appear (?!) to change. And while Chiwa admirably doesn't fall head over heels for such a lovely specimen of manliness (god, there was one picture of his back recently that made me want to squeal out loud), we see her struggle to preserve her integrity and her heart fighting against (what seems like to me xD) the inevitable. Of course she's supposed to be a stand-in for the reader but that doesn't stop her from being likable. smile
To put it simply, it's fun. You want to see them get together, and while enough happens in each chapter to make you hot and bothered and a little satisfied, at the same time Enjouji-sensei is prudently pacing their relationship. Not to mention that there's great humor!
I can't say that it's a "classic" manga full of soul-searching conclusions about the human condition, because it isn't. But if you like a little smut and romance you will adore this. So far it's been awesome, and each chapter leaves me desperately wanting more. This kind of story has the danger of getting dull later on (with the manga-ka increasingly reaching out for something to keep it interesting), but I'm hoping that it will continue for at least a few more volumes.
Edit: Wow. Talk about drama. It hasn't gotten cheesy, yet, but my interest after chapter 6 has spiked. The compelling idea is that you think there might be a happy ending, but it seems almost impossible... The only thing is that I can do is cheer for Chiwa... Go, Chiwa! You can make it, no matter what happens! +_+
