From Covenant of Darkness:

For 10 years Saika has done everything she can to get close to her love Keishi. She followed him to the same high school, joined the same committees, and even changed her outward personality to become the right match for Keishi. One day, looking for Keishi in the special section of the school, she runs into the school's trouble-maker Kirisaki Shin. As he begins to bully her, her true personality comes out: loud-mouthed and violent. To her dismay, Kirisaki decides that he likes that kind of girl. Lovey Dovey is the story of Saika's trials and tribulations in a love triangle at a school where "Love is Prohibited."

so it's typical shoujo but at least the girl isn't stupid and the guy isn't a rapist. and when it comes time to pick a guy, she is decisive (unlike most shoujo heroines). if you like shoujo, read it, but don't expect anything different. if you don't like shoujo.. don't read it.

One glance at the art, and you can tell what kind of manga this is... I, however, made the mistake of actually reading some of it.
It's a typical shoujo, absolutely nothing special at all. Not the characters, not the plot, nothing.
The girl is SO typical. She's stupid, annoying, and, even though she's supposedly in love with Keishi, seems to be gaga for the other guy.

"Loud-mouthed and violent", what? The only time I saw her being loud-mouthed and violent--scratch that, just loud-mouthed--was when she was reasonably upset that Shin made a move on her (and that was only after she seemed to be rather.. enjoying it).
What I don't get is how two guys could actually fall in love with her.. her character just made the entire story wholly unbelievable.

She is determined, yes.. determined, however, to get a guy. That's not the kind of determined I like to see in a girl...

all cutesy-ness and no substance. I'm glad she is stronger than most girls in manga that fall into the smut category- but I can't see what the guy sees in her, nor can I see what she sees in him. It feels like the characters are just following through with the motions directed by their mangaka, rather than acting like real characters with personalities.

I agree with the other comments, what the heck do they see in each other?! @_@ There is no clear development in their relationship except pretty words to have sex -_- and besides the smut art is not even that good!!

In the beginning Saika does seem to be what she was said to be, "Loud-mouthed and violent" though she still was loud-mouthed and violent she just went on a little bit of a decline in what made her character exactly what I like in heroines. Shin was cute. He was sweet, considerate, and naive when it came to his relationship with Saika. I absolutely loved him. Plot was typical and the art was good. What I did love about Saika was that she was decisive about who she wanted to be with and stuck with him without fail. Good story overall.

I like strong girl characters, but this one couldn't fill the bill. Sometimes cliches work, and sometimes they just get in the way. The girl is supposed to be really smart and strong, right? Does she get more stupid every time she falls(for no reason) for the guy, who's not only immature, but also a spoiled rich brat? Ugh. I am all for character development, but degradation is kinda upsetting.

worst than typical shoujo, if you want an empty excuse for smut with no plot and forced situations this is your kind of manga, coudn't read past the second chapter.
a waste of time...

One of the worst mangas I've read recently. Even if a manga is weak I try to read until the end to give a fair opinion and rate it with the view of the whole picture, but this time I REALLY couldn't force myself. The characters are so stereotypical, they don't have an ounce of authenticity in them, their actions are stupid, irrational and annoying. They have an emotional depth of a teaspoon. I really hope that nobody get the false ideas than any real life people can be that shallow and fickle. Even in fictional world, they stand out for their lack of genuineness, originality and for their immaturity. What a pity - a decent art could really be used for some better plot.

This actually reminds me a lot of Honey X Honey Drops.

I'm not saying it's super fabulous, but I like it when the guy falls in love first. It's cute and not quite as mean as HxHD. People go into shojo expecting "great romance" out of a high school story. Come on people. I'm happy with this cute romance. A little challenges along the way. The main girl kind of gets on my feminist nerve, but we all do things to make the one we like happy. Sometimes, we look back (especially when we're older and wiser) and realize they were stupid silly things, but hell - she's in HIGH SCHOOL!
It's cute. Makes a cute read. smile

I thought this was cute. A little predictable maybe but still cute. I love the characters. Jun was my fave because he was sooo cute but for some reason I never really trusted him lol and how did te-chan ended up being such a big wuss?! >:0

Loved the art and the story was cute though Saika was a bit annoying. Why are some smart people so stupid? And I found Shin's one track mind kinda cute as well haha
