Unfinished list manga. -_-

I decided not to finish reading this manga because it was painful to my brain.
I don't know if it's the scanlating or how it's actually written, but I couldn't make sense of it. Like... hardly... Barely.

So no... just no. But I'm not gonna rate it since I still don't know the source of the confusion - the plot or the scanlation. And tbh, I don't wanna download it again and try to figure it out. My brain might melt =|

I can't say I liked it and at the same time I can't say I disliked it. It was annoyingly silly but at the same time quite... charming? So while my brain is telling me to rate it lower, my heart which is filled with love for cutesy stuff won't let me because the story of Mirai and Hanoka was really adorable. I was face-palming and awwww-ing at the same time. It must be my love for incest speaking through me (although it wasn't really incest). Like I said, CUTE.

I'll be honest. I read the first story because the guy on the cover has glasses. It was fun and cute and kinda silly; the pacing was a little hard to follow though. But I more or less liked how everything ended up—I'm happy for the shy boy! The pig-ornaments are so cute too, hahaha...

Anyway, the too-cutesy-cute art and the confusing writing have me disinclined to read the rest.

The drawings = overload of cutesy (too much for my liking)
Although the stories were cute in some parts, most of it was confusing and hard to follow . :L
Out of the few chapter oneshots, the only one I liked was when the girl helps tutor the guy smile
Otherwise, if you have time to kill, then go ahead and read this manga. biggrin

It's one of those mangas where you read, and never look at again XD

I personally didn't hate this manga. It was cutesy, but it wasn't terrible. And it wasn't actually all that confusing either...
The scanlators did a wonderful job scanlating it though (duh, it was Aerandria and Shoujo Crusade; they always do HQ scanlations) so I have NO idea what bad scanlating Natsu was talking about. Anyway, not half bad.
the art was a little "too-cutesy" and the writing could have been less "confusing".
10/10 because I think it deserves at least an 8 average (maybe I'm too nice?).

I have to agree with lys' comment about this oneshot volume manga:

"...too-cutesy-cute art and the confusing writing..."

At least, the last one is a bit more readable than the first three stories.... ._.
