The manga has actually gotten better. The second chapter wasn't even that big of deal but it was bad in that it made the manga cliche for about 1 chapter. The manga picked up very much from chapter 3 onwards so please people don't give up on it.

I'd advice anyone not to judge any manga at least until it has about 2 volumes at the most.
Some things take awhile for the story to get off the ground and into the authors vision.

As Leos said, very weak 2nd chapter.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Had they chosen a different way to get her into the club other than a crappy taunt, I'd probably still be reading this. And it would have taken the inclusion of one line and the answer to said line:
right after the taunt she should have answered with "So, what has this club accomplished with it's love?"

Very interesting 1st chapter but the 2nd immediately ruins everything and takes an all but generic road.

The main character easily falling for some stupid taunt was just dumb as hell and her secret easily being known by probably the one person who would expose it is even dumber. It just felt like what happened in chapter 2 had to happen to continue the story but at the same time it is what will make the story plain and played out.

I don't wanna put my foot in my mouth all at once but I have no hopes for how this will turn out.
