I'm a girl, I also like romance-shoujo stuff, and yet, I find this series IRRITATED! This manga has such a high rate, and I feel like I have been fooled by it. It's way too cliched, unrealistic, both main protagonists annoy me. >.< I drop it after 2 chapters. Can't continue this. Give it a 2, because of the nice art, lol

I like drama in manga, but not all the time. I love this story for the affection and love that is so clear in the main couple, and the beautiful art that highlights it all.

Mitsuki Kako is one of my favourite shoujo mangakas - and I've never found one that comes close to her in the whole beautiful simple romance thing. This is a brilliant example of what she does so well.

So i've finished reading this! Well, there's nothing bad about this manga. It's very warm and the storyline goes very smoothly. There's a little bit of jealousy here and there but still ended up in a fuzzy situation. Overall, it's a nice read! I do like the art too!

Although there are some cliche on this manga, I still find it sweet and heart warming. I recommend this to those hardcore shoujo lover's. Even though the ending is typical for shoujo readers, it still my preferred ending for them. For the not over the top fluffiness and nice artwork I will give this manga an 8 score.

This is the first time I'm fooled by the rating system in Baka-Update.

Normally, manga which has a rating as high as this one, 8.4, is sure to be good. But when I started reading, ok, this girl is speaking to herself, oh hey she meets a "cool" guy (or so he is called numerous times in the series) which is ohsotypicalinshoujo, and then he thinks she's cute, then they kiss, them BAM obstacle, she's so weak, he's so "cool" (again) and calmed (how predictable) and in control (ohmygodgetmeoutofhere), and everything that is so UNREALISTIC and TYPICAL... And at the end [SPOILER ALERT] they get married and lived happily ever after. Oh, did I mention he's only 7 years older than her and they hit it off right after she graduated from high school and he's her father's non-related-in-blood brother? *Rolling Eyes*

Even though I finished it myself but still, this manga is overrated OMIGOD! Why peopleconfused?? You 800 something people...

*Crying* I wasted 100mb because of this *Crying* Not worth it!

Another cliched, boring shoujo with cardboard characters and no major plot development. The main couple are overly sweet and lovey-dovey in a cringe-worthy way. And did I mention that this is a complete snorefest which you often read when you have nothing to do on a rainy day?

I love this manga! Is so cute and sweet! The art, the story, and the characters are all so great! i was worried it was going to be a really dramatic manga with all sorts of twist and a dark past, but i wasn't. It really showed how their love and relationship becomes deeper as the story progresses, not it a dirty way that many manga do(which ruins it and makes me hate it) but in an emotional way. It's a great story that i think anyone would love!^_^
