From Serenus-Dreamers:

After losing their parents, Fumino and her brother hop from one relative to another. Getting tired of all those moves, she finally decides to quit school and work to support her brother on her own. As they sat on a park bench, her teacher appears in front of her and agrees to her demands of marrying and supporting both her and her brother!! Is he serious or just playing around...?!


Also contains the oneshot, Tsukio to Himawari, in vol. 1.
Asahi-kun is a carefree junior-high student, never attaching to girls even though he enjoys going with them. But when the school's number 1 honor student Mitsuki "cyborg" Konno asked him to a 1-month date, in exchange for the front row ticket to his favorite singer's concert, he was forced to accept. He only has to show her what it feels like to date, right? He is ready for that...however, what he's not prepared for was his heart's reaction...

I liked this manga a lot. It was a school night and I remember staying up till 3 am to finish this( woke up late and had to run to school without food in the morning). It was so interesting, couldnt help it. I admired the way sensei took care of Fumino all the while when protecting her innocence. No other teacher would've done that. Beautiful love and happy ending. Awesome. Not too long and not too short. I would read it again if i have time.

i was started read this manga because i thought how adorable tanaka sensei works is. yeah,, i like this one too,, but later i got annoyed with how this story dragged for,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
each chapter only shows that how lovey dovey they are, got some problems, and end up with that kazuma tried to comfort fumino. ugh!

But i got my interest back, while i've read chapter 50 above, and so.... touching,,, >.<
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i feel sorry for shouma, who fell in love with fumino, but how hard he tried to endure it,,even so, i'm glad that the story came to happy ending. And in the end, the relationship between main characters are so touching too,,,

So, i thing this story worth to read,, tanaka sensei knows how to make touching family story, hahaha. =D, but i want more extra chapter, huwaaa.... >.<

This is a typical shoujo with all the cliches and fluff, but it still has it's funny moments. So if you want to read a typical shoujo that doesn't require any brain activity from you I recommend it, because it's very cute, not that long and some scenes had me laughing out loud. However if you're looking for something more, this is not the manga for you. It's weakest point is the lack of character development, so yeah, the characters are as deep as a puddle ( a very cute puddle ^.^).

Sweet and pleasant, but repetitive at times

Very sweet, very heartwarming. I love that it actually focuses more on the 'family' aspect of the main characters' relationship, and how their love is pretty straightforward and simplistic but not unbearably boring. (And by the way, kissing is not the only key to romance, guys, stop being so bothered.)
That being said, I'm really not fond of the many love rivals and find those irrelevant to the plot development. Many of the arcs are also redundant, which at times made me feel like the story is too dragged on. Not so great pacing and developments, but sweet story and likable characters; all in all, a quite nice read.

OMG sensei is so kind n never ever try to look cool or so what most shoujo male lead. He passionately think of everything. Love that part very much.
Fumino is cool but surely very much & always be frank & never keep to her heart & assume thing...

I really this manga. Nothing is wrong with the love begins out of pity. Since later on they try hard to survive together get everyone respect their feeling.

It's been a long time comin' but the ending has finally arrived and I relished every step of the way. The premise of the story is deceiving because you may be thinking "Teacher-Student relationship, say wha? Must be full of sexual innuendos and lusty scenes" Certainly 100% was not the case (although there were some innuendos that were not acted upon). The love was as pure as it can possibly get and I think the slow but sure progression in Fumino and Kazuma's relationship is what made the story so enjoyable for me. The artwork is absolutely beautiful and catered to my preferences very well. Scenes were all well depicted and so I give a 10 to the artwork. The various love polygons were a zesty addition and made the work more interesting. Although, I did feel like some parts could have been fast-forwarded and skipped, they were nonetheless great. I loved how the characters placed a great emphasis on the sanctity of family and the importance of perseverance. I personally wish to have a period of time dedicated to reading it in its entirety again because I honestly did enjoy it that much in this journey.

So all in all, highly recommended if you're in the mood for something that will make you gush and smile. Enjoy.
