Description
Takato Kei is just an ordinary college student, training for an ordinary life, when he falls onto a strange but appealing part time job. He's been hired to tutor a teenage girl at home for 10,000 yen per hour! The girl in question, Fujioka Yukari, is not a high school student, but a highly successful day trader who has already amassed 170 billion yen! Despite her money and her beautiful apartment, Kei can't help feeling that there's a certain loneliness about the cute teenage girl. She even seems embarrassed of her career, as if her obsession with the stock market and the vast amount of time she spends moving stocks makes her an otaku. Kei may be just the person she needs to help her break out of her isolated lifestyle and acquire the one thing money can't buy - happiness.

Oh why oh why is it on hiatus!? ToT I picked this up 'cause the MU reviews were singing praises for it. Plus the summary was interesting so I decided to pick this up. Now I want more. ToT

I like this manga. It talks about stocks and even about money issue that can be hard to talk among friends; like the pride of being able to pay for the meal, how much you make from your job, etc.

Character development is good. Each chapter you learn something about Yukari, Kei, and even the side characters. I love how it builds it slowly step-by-step and I can't help but feel something good will happen.

It does have its humor. I laughed when a character say something that shocks the other character speechless and I just love the atmosphere the artist portrays at that moment.

This story have a great potential and I'll love to see how it'll turn out if it updates.

If there's a word fit to this manga should be this one...
Its kinda slow paced, and is really original. There are times that the manga gets confusing, but overall its really good.
And the main character...i still dont know if he is dumb or inteligent, all i know is that i like both protagonists... =]

Like Dreamer said, this is unique, and no real major cliches... well for the seinen part of it, but I can't help but feel it has a shoujo-like feel... but it's so small, that it doesn't bother me at all biggrin The characters personalities are pretty believable. I can't describe the art, it just fits~ though it is faily well drawn (from what I've seen in the releases and the RAW). Since it's a new breath of fresh air, I have to give it a 10. But overall, I don't know how to rate it :3 nonetheless, don't pass it up biggrin

I love this story and am so glad that it has continued. I look forward to more high-end economics romantic comedy from the master of the "Genre". (Is it really a genre if only one person writes it?)

as of chapter 5 this manga is decent paced as they build up the relationship between the two characters but always making sure you feel the difference in how they are living, she is rich and lonely, while he is poor and sociable.

but the female protagonist is really overly shy and cute, you just feel like hugging her.

I enjoyed it until the last volume. Great concept, good execution until the last volume. Love the art. The characters are a bit flat but better than the typical manga. I think Billionaire Girl would have benefited more from an extra volume instead of ending things the way it did. I'd like to avoid spoilers so I won't go into detail but let's just say the ending is typical fare, which is why it brought the manga down from an 8 to a 7 for me. It was frustrating finishing this manga and if I wasn't so close to the end, I would have dropped it.

I thought it was shoujo at first so I was wondering why the MC was male and why the art was shounen/seinen-ish. LOL. I only realized after about 10 chapters. How stupid of me. But I didn't really care cuz I don't really like shoujo much. Anyways, it's interesting and somehow intriguing. It's kind of refreshing too.
