The first thing that came to my mind while reading this is "Kanokon". Somehow I get a familiar feeling that I've read this manga, and yet, I haven't. I must say, this work shares a lot of similarity with it. But better art, hell yeah.

Great Job for the mangaka, and it is a "recommended" manga for me.

This manga is one of the few mangas I've red which has great art.
Most readers usually judge a manga by art and this one just caught my attention.Romance and comedy is decent and most importantly AWESOME ART>>>>

Well, like what most people wrote, it's a good manga. The art is good, easy to read. The story is interesting. It's definitely worth buying the manga and reading it. If you don't like ecchi (perverted) mangas, I would like for you to try it, but won't recommend it.
For me, I would like this manga to have more delicate magic battle like the manga "Magic Teacher Negima".
Anyways, good manga to read.

Romantic Comedies do not need story, nor do they need character or character development. As the Genre suggests, the main focus should always be the Romance and Comedy, everything else is just extra.

With that said, this series is by far my favorite because it doesn't trigger jealousy from male readers as many series does. It gives a sense of security for the reader to know that no random bishounen is going to come sometime during the series and mess around with Himari.

As a Hentai mangaka, I'd say he proves he can draw and fill a series with suggestive and provocative scenes to keep readers entertained. I have to say to many of those who demand story and character development from Romantic Comedies to stop posting hate comments, because if you're looking for those things, you should not be reading a Romantic Comedy, or Ecchi for that matter. Rather, you should just go read a Seinen series that has those elements.

This manga is seriously one of my favourites with all the sexual tension and circumstances. Cannot stop reading it and i hope it's updated soon.

Keep up the awesome work Milan!!!

I really hope that this series will continue and go on for a few volumes unlike the rest of the authors work as the story line for this is quite fresh and interesting. Enough there to keep everyone happy and Manga-Heaven are doing a good job scanlating it.

One thing to point out is that the art is top class. This mangaka clearly knows how to draw girls. Maybe not so strange considering that he has only drawn hentai until this manga (click his name link).
The story is suprisingly charming though, i'd recommend this manga. The art alone could make this survive, even without a good story (which it has). It's cliche, but these kind of manga always are...

The Artwork was awesome.
The plot was good (for the genre at least, Harem=little original plot,lots of fanservice to make up for it.)
it was very predictable (to me at least, though I'm very good when it comes to foreseeing the plot, actions, etc. so that might not mean much)

and finally it has a plentiful supply of the three keys of a good manga: Action (Violent action), Comedy, and of course FAN SERVICE!!! ............Giggity Giggity Goo. smile
needs a little more action in comparison to the Fanservice though.

The mangaka really knows how to draw. Especially girls. They are cute, beautiful, sexy... All you an hope for.
The story is quite refreshing, and somewhat original, without being extraordinarily unique. Himari is one of my favorite female character. She is so beautiful and sexy. The relation she has with the main character is just too cute, even if she can be a bit pushy at time xD (for the best ^^).
This manga isn't the best, but it does an awesome job at entertaining you. Even if you can predict what's up ahead, it's still really good.
Just the way Himari is going after the hero is good enough. And the way she is talking in "ancient english" in the traduction, is just awesome.
Just sit back, and enjoy.
