This is actually my favorite manga I think for reasons that others wouldn't be able to connect with but everyone that's a fan of shoujo or josei need to try this manga. The story is unique and a much needed palate cleanser from other mangas in these genres and the art is superb. I think it's beautiful and very well crafted story. It's also easy to root for the heroine and releases come out enough after each other so you don't wait too long. I also suggest reading other manga from this translation group, Stiletto Heels.
A real work of art for josei manga. My personal favorite.

Good josei, I expect it would be better as the story goes. If you search for josei close to reality, then try this one. I have to say that the main male character was the source of those pain, age gap also a big issue for him. Maybe some reader would think that the female chara was too stupid or what, but i think in reality, that's how most women do. When they in love, they can't do anything about their feeling.

Too many characters, too soon. Its alarming for me not to know who the players are (in terms of romance) within the first couple of chapters. Its the kind of story where you need to love reality, or really gruesome things. This was really depressing for me, thats what i mean by gruesome.

Not in essence, but much more in frame, I disagree with the earlier comment. For you to say some title is great in few early chapters, some surprise are required. Considering this one is published for josei demography, not shoujo, I don't see any surprise being played in these three chapters. Sure the tension is escalating, but still, 'normal' is the best word to describe the setting and background.

The most I can say is, this manga develop well, giving clues that important conflict or interesting development going to take place. But not just yet. Not in this three chapters.

This! This story is the epitome of amazing shoujo manga. No really! This is really well done. The story seems predictable, cliché-ed love triangle and such, but NO! this story, even though the plot line seems already used to the bone, has a charm never seen in any shoujo. All because of one character. Not gonna spoil the fun since only one chapter has been translated, but I've read the story in french, and I promise you, it's just breath taking.
