Pure and resonating, this manga is pure win. If you are looking for a short, cute and innocent romance without it being irritating in it's naivety, this is the one for you! The length is perfect, any longer and it would have all the shoujo trimmings that seem really unnecessary in this type of romance.
I thought the relationship developed at an excellent pace, and there was something so relaxing about it's carefree approach to first love. There was some conflicts, usually about realisations and confrontations, but I liked how they were resolved, and how honest the characters were with their awkwardness. This manga made me feel happy to be in love.

Kare Kano is one my favourite, so it's only natural that I love this manga too.
The drawing is very cute with the same style as Kare Kano, where the feelings are clearly reflected in the drawing both in a cute and in a serious style. The story is pretty good too for now, I like this kind of main character.
Waiting impatiently for the next chapter (Is there a chance to see it anytime soon ? The scanslation seems to be stopped ?).
I actually liked this over Kare Kano(which I couldn't finish reading) because the plot progression was faster and less long-winded. And the "monster" part was kinda funny and amusing too since the protagonist was really naiive, thinking that everyone was pure and simple.
Interesting new manga!
It's similar to Kare Kano in that it takes place in a school, and Nanoha starts out immediately disliking the "Prince" (since so far that's only what we know him as). Of course, it seems unevitable that they'll start liking each other, but that adds to the fun, since she hates him so much now, and he's such a jerk. ^^ It's such a cute and funny manga, and of course the drawing's lovely, even though it seems at times as if it's still a continuation of Kare Kano. Maybe it'll end up all serious and angsty like Kare Kano did, too, but for now I'll wait anxiously for the next chapter. *crosses fingers* ^^
A bit dissapointed...
I'd come across this manga a couple times before, usually because people were recommending it. When I finally read it I finished it feeling a little disappointed by the story, it was a sweet story but I was expecting something a little more developed and a bit deeper. As it is the story is just all right, but nothing wonderful.
Plot- It's simple and sweet, and everyone can relate. The premise is pretty much a girl trying to overcome her 'dark side' or 'monster' that is in her. Everyone has a darker side, and everyone struggles with it, the monster in the story was interesting enough and it was handle quite well, and made the manga interesting in its own way. It was not very deep however, only skimming the surface of emotions, the quick pacing did not help this and I soon felt as if things were jumping ahead to quickly and I lost the connection with the characters that had been initially there.
Characters- The two mains are undeniably cute, especially together. I admit that though the story was quite simple and in the end failed to really make any sort of impact on me, these characters were worth reading about! There just so cute! Their characterization goes quickly and while I could not get too attached to them I did enjoy their story and was at least engaged enough to read it all.
Art- Simplistic, but manages to capture the emotions needed to portray the story quite well.
Other- I enjoyed the story, but was let down by my expectations for it. The premise was good, however I wish it were longer and took more time to develop the emotions which were the main force behind the story. The emotions of the characters seemed to sway a bit from chapter to chapter, not to badly but enough that at times I was not quite understand the emotions and actions of the characters. All in all it was a cute read that was very quick and easy to read and is recommended as a nice story to read to pass time.
6/10 - Liked it
A breath of fresh air!
This whole story had a really peaceful and carefree feel to it, but that's not the only thing I loved about it. At the outset, it seemed like this would be your usual school-based shoujo manga, with a prince who becomes interested in the plain girl who dislikes him - but I realized very quickly that everything has been very cleverly tweaked to create a fresh, sweet story.
The events are set into motion when Nanoha loses control of her temper (her "little monster") and tells off Hazuki for being a vain and self-absorbed prince, throwing him unceremoniously off his pedestal. But Hazuki, instead of being your average cold prince, actually turns out to be someone who was just a bit spoilt and uninterested in his surroundings. It's so refreshing how he reacts with gratefulness to Nanoha's verbal outburst rather than with anger, and Nanoha, in return, is guilt-tripped into roping in her contempt for him and accept his friendly overtures. Watching them go from that to genuine respect and admiration for each other's strong points was delightful, and I must admit it really is nice when you see a shoujo male lead who gets more flustered and embarrassed than the girl. The developments between them is perfectly paced, and Tsuda-sensei has avoided silly melodramatics, prefering to keep her characters honest. Even the stereotypical "jealous bullying girls" trope was averted; Nanoha is such a nice, cute girl that the group of bullies end up trying to defend her from what they thought was a suspicious mobster, haha!
Another thing that you'll notice fairly quickly is that the story occasionally switches between Nanoha and Hazuki's POVs - at one point, we even saw the same scenes from two slightly different ways. It can be confusing at first, particularly when you see two pages that are virtually the same (but with different narration and angles), but it's actually quite a clever way of helping readers get to know both leads equally. It's unusual in shoujo manga for readers to know very much about the male lead, and I really enjoyed this aspect.
THIS IS SO COOL!!!
OMG this manga is SO funny...you never see a girl reacting so violently to a "prince-sama"....LOL...Masami Tsuda's mangas are the BEST!
Reading this felt like a breath of fresh air. The story wasn't too fast paced nor was it incredibly slow. It mostly didn't fall into the usual cliches but when it did they were nessicary to the plot. The characters were very likeable. The art is a bit simple but I like how clean it looks. Overall it is worth recomendation and very cute
This manga is one of the cutest manga I ever read, its really simple and lighthearted, and you cant help but fall in love with the cute little monster, I just wish it was a little bit longer...
From the first chapter i became addicted to this manga ! It's funny and cute , too bad that just have 2 volumes >______-< Tsuda - sensei could at least made 5 volumes ;____________;
