Description
A self-proclaimed angel decides to intervene with a boy's love life, starting with a timer on a boy's arm, which will count down every time the boy's heart beats from interacting with his crush starting from 10. At 0, the boy will confess everything he is thinking at that moment. But it only starts there! The 'angel' has powers based on the number 10, and grand the boy the ability to stop time, make someone fall in love with him, learn who others like, and more. With comedy, romance, and drama, this is not a typical shounen series and should not be passed up.

this seems like a normal fare of weak boy trying to get the attention of popular girl - and it is true in its normality, but the execution is impeccable. all due to the characters being who they are, acting the way that show the most warmth there can be. the angel is the best character of them all, she never change from her brattiness and ditziness, and that makes this manga 10 times better when her every magic fall apart. nice art and i like the ending.

As most of the comments say, the story dwindles down a bit. The concept is nice and the art's nice. The last few chapters were really "the cherry on top." Nice ending and story.

Originally ranked this a 9 when it first started. I just loved all the spells and how original the series was. It definitely goes downhill, though. Especially when the inevitable happens.
The last two chapters were a nice close to the series, though 100 times doesn't seem that many times to me bigrazz

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
just read the ending....
well, I found this manga fun to read, even with an almost loop story, just like reading a doraemon but with many different style though
its not bad, but its not really good either, at least I enjoyed reading it, it has been fun and amusing seeing how the main character tried to progress his love with desperate though...
I like seeing a story by not ending it just when or suddenly after they become a couple, I like to see them enjoying their life, getting another conflict even after becoming a couple (kimi iru?)
maybe the mangaka himself had already known that if this going much further it will become boring so he decides to end it like that, and it still looks good ending according to me
all ends well, farewell Kouta, Farewell Yoshizawa Akino, farewell countrouble thx for giving us fun light reading

So much fun at the beginning

The manga starts very well off, it's both interesting and funny. Yet I get the feeling that the author didn't really thought it would have such a success and would continue on being released. Later on it really does start to feel repetitive and it seems it lost its way as the story probably should have already ended and/or should focus more on the relationship between the main characters. Well, I hope it won't get dragged for a long time without an idea, Nao probably should have thought more about how he wants to end it before it got into this cycle.

It gets boring after a while...

I am caught up with the translations at 29 chapters and i started when there were only about 15 chapters out. After keeping up with it for a while, it is starting to get pretty boring, and only getting worse as i go farther in, to the point where i am no longer enjoying it all except for random moment. When was the last time they even used an angel device when that was this manga's selling point. Although the end of chapter 29 may turn the tides depending how it turns out. My favorite harem member hasnt even shown up in like 6 or 7 chapters, the manga is pretty much over because he picked a girl already and theyre together, but they just keep dragging it on, and on, and on.

Chapter 25

Chapter 25 makes this entire series worth it, it has to be the silliest thing I've read in a long time.

Make it to chapter 25 before you judge this manga, it's has excellent humor. At least enough to tide over the slow pacing all shounen romance has.

Your normal romcom with few interesting element added, in the beginning.

Unfortunately after the twenty chapter or so I don't see anything particularly outstanding and found the series to be dragging its feet and now just wish the endless push and pull end already.

Far better than I expected

As others said below, this is far better than the premise suggests, in part because it doesn't devolve into a lame ego-boosting harem.

The characters generally behave coherently (even if the 'angels' are out of whack and bring in lots of zany fun) and the relationships are complex and evolving. I also like how the main character has a fair amount of moral fortitude, even if he does at times succumb to minor temptations. In particular, throughout his 'forced' pursuit of his love interest, you'll see him do nice things, sometimes in sacrifice, and hence you get the sense that it is actually believable and natural for his relationship with the girl to be progressing.

I have a feeling that in the end the author will make love blossom naturally, without any angel-created magic, as indeed anything else would be a type of mind-control and (essentially) rape. As ugly as that last word is, I hope you'll understand how in fact this manga is about the absolute opposite, and that the characters are all genuinely nice people, which makes for good story-telling, IMO.

More than a simple ecchi due to execution

I usually don't really like the "magical being descends upon a loser" stories (aside from To-Love-Ru, because that was well done), because it just seems so... easy. A guy is bound to a girl that happens to be perfect for him because of some cosmic fate just seems too convenient of a story. I like romances that have to be developed.

And this is different, because the magical being is there to help, and is completely not a love interest at all. She is cute in a chibi way, but not in a way that would be acceptable to see her as a love interest.

The different kinds of magic are interesting, and they lead to some great scenarios. The author does a good job using the "10" gimmick to come up with a lot of plot lines. The main important part though, is that the author doesn't use this gimmick as a crutch, but uses it to further develop the story. (Spoilers) When the author reintroduced the tried and true idea of a memory wipe, and the misunderstandings that resulted after the earthquake, that's when I knew that this mangaka knows what they're doing. That's the proper way to progress a story: to hint at her feelings, but draw back enough so that the story can stay back and not be too rushed. To me, it's a perfect way of pacing. We understand her character, but then all of that is quickly negated. It is not done in a frustrating way, because her feelings are still there, but the only progress of bringing out that feeling is stunted. And that's much better than eliminating her feelings altogether. (Spoiler end)

The art is great. There's a lot of humor. Very little fan service, but that's ok for me.

The bottom line is, it's just well executed. As with a typical harem, there are more love interests that are introduced, but the great part with this story is that more antagonistic characters are simultaneously introduced as well, leading to a very real possibility of a conflict directly related to that new love interest.

The concept may be cliche to you, but the plot and the characters allow it to remain very fresh and entertaining.
