If you're looking for a serious manga then get out.

Think about Doraemon, Yotsubato, Sunday Comics, etc.
Well that is the overall feel for this manga. One you could read over and over again without worries, just pure entertainment and has an actual lessons to it too.
In fact there is character development.

As for the art, it's very comical. It fits the story. And honestly, if it wasn't for the style It would be less funny so the art is a plus story wise. So I don't get the complains. I mean, do you guys complain about Doreamon's art, nope. Because it fits.

I actually thought the character design was decent. But the mangaka had crude, thick lines, and the characters' faces literally looked distorted or different in every panel (This was improved later on). Sure, this manga managed to avoid every cliche in the shoujo world, but that didn't make it interesting. There was rarely any conflict because everything was easily and quickly solved by the simple and straight-forward leads in this book; and maybe that's more realistic.

There were suggested mature themes in this book, but the art is a tad bit too simple and childish to put 'sex' in this manga. It just...doesn't work for the amusement of the reader. How Hoshino boldly expressed his desires to Negi...was really awkward.

Definitely unique, but not exactly in a good way. This manga gives you some laughs, but I just can't was my cup of tea.

This manga was so adorable and sweet. At first it seems very simple, but as the story progresses their relationship develops and you begin to see their cute little relationship quirks. You can't help but be happy for them while simultaneously relating to some of their first love experiences. I appreciate that there was very little drama filling the pages. The little drama there was seemed to fit the story and the situations very well.

I'm rarely put off by art styles, so this manga didn't bother me one bit. If anything I like that it was different than the norm, and it didn't take anything away from the story line. For those of you who decide not to read this just because of the art, then it's your loss.

Cute, sweet, funny, and even philosophical at some points, this is the romance manga everyone should read. The art is definitely unique but that doesn't make it bad. In fact, by the time you get into it the art is the ONLY way you could see them being drawn. Besides, it's not the art that makes it great, it's the characters. Five volumes was only too short for me.

The story is ok but that is it. There is no drama or anything at all. It is just about a boy who is a straight forward guy that says anything on his mind and the girl is a easy going girl who gets embarrass because of his straight forwardness.

Well this manga was long & very childish... Can't either agree with the Catagori, Awesome Main lead. First of all...
ART: The art was so bad. The mangaka dosn't get any improvements at all between the 1 - 5 vol, I think he get even worse lol...

STORY. Well Can't say that the story was so facinating,i found it more easy going & cheap...
to streight lined, no drama or a fling on the sid.

Characters : well, Streightful guy? & easy going girl? Sub characters boring? except the guy that was talking about *** all the time (haha)
Summery This manga wasn't that special, i wouldn't pay to read this manga. 4/10

So Sweet

The story is wonderful. Simple and lovely. The love relationship is so innocent and sweet that it really feels like high school love relationships. It isn't like a typical shoujo manga would be but it is a different pace at the relationship.

I will admit that the art style is somewhat crude and weird that it did made it difficult to read in the first place. But after a while, you get use to it.

It is a must-read romance, if not, a different pace in romance would be suggested.

Compared to most shoujo manga, this story is really strange in that there's no bullying, neither of the main characters are super popular or particularly good looking (although they certainly are very cute!) and well, basically nothing super dramatic happens. I wouldn't think this is seinen if I didn't see it tagged as such, but it is such a sweet story I recommend it to everyone, male, female, old or young.
This is really a high school romance story. You can really feel the growth of the characters, and it's very realistic in its portrayal of relationships. In this story you get all kinds, unrequited love, mutual love, respect, and so much more. This is one of those stories that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Although the art may seem strange to you at first, it really grows on you (at least it did to me), and the simple style is fitting of the sweetness of the story.
I'm finding it kind of difficult to put my feelings into words but, to put it simply, you should read it!

This manga is just, well the only word is heartwarming. There arent any sudden cliffhangers or massive climaxes like you find in other romance mangas, and to be honest very little happens, although this works in its favour. It just gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside, while also making you laugh. It doesnt get repetitive, and you get used to the unusual (but fitting) art.

By the time you reach the end, you really feel like you've gotten to know the people in the story, they always behave in character, and well, I honestly havent read anything like this before.

I highly reccommend this to anyone and everyone, dont be put off by the art, it really suits this manga and you'll have accepted it before you finish the first chapter. I promise you wont regret reading this.

An adorable little manga. It's should make you laugh a lot and the characters are pretty entertaining to watch. The narrative style is similar to Yotsubato, plain and simple but very heartwarming and funny in it's simplicity.
