Description
Chiaki is a massage crazy girl who only thinks of massages and on the bus to school she always sees a guy with a really stiff back. She really wants to massage that back but doesn't dare to look at the guy's face. When she coincidentally meets the guy in school, she immediately recognizes the back. And of course begs him to let her massage him (in a very hilarious way) but of course like every good looking, slightly evil guy he has conditions....

-----------

Massage Research Society's high expected star Chiaki is a normal, quiet high schooler. She immediately wants to massage the guy with the beautiful back who she sees on her bus, then coincidentally she also sees him at her school. But he just happens to be the school's number one good looking guy Yousuke, who doesn't want anybody to massage him. When Yousuke and Chiaki make a bet, what will happen to them!?

Vol. 1 contains the side story: Teach Me, Prince

It's really sweet and weird. You can't just give it up like that even if there are these things that annoy you. I mean this is her first work. I love it despite that. And as it goes on it progresses nicely. At least I think so. I don't mind that they sped up on the love thing since it still goes on kind of slow.

I started reading the first volume of this series and I am losing interest fast. The storyline is way to rushed, everything is revealed too quickly and the romance is not built up, it feels really fake for them to love each other that quickly.

Her sister is too mean to even be a family member and they don't give much of a reason for that. The stuff her sister does to her is what highschool bullies normally do in romance manga.

The story had allot of potential but the author rushed everything and none of it feels genuine or unique at all.

I'll read a few more volumes and see if it gets better if not then I'm dropping it.

also all of the men in this comic look exactly alike. I can barely tell Chiaki's brother and her love interest apart.

To be honest, the drawings of the characters in the beginnings were shitty but I decided to continue anyway. As the chapters goes on, the drawings became better and better.

The story was pretty decent, and the comedy injected into the series was well balanced. The heroine is a line in between a weak, naive girl and a strong, determined young lady. In the beginning, the hero seems like a playboy, arrogant and a little cold. Later in the series, he develops a soft spot for the heroine - and it was cute ~

Something I dislike about the manga is the sister of the heroine. Why does she have to be so mean to the heroine? What did the heroine do to deserve this from the sister? And that is exactly why the manga is so interesting. They reveal a little at a time.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read. Don't give up on the manga even though the art at the start is *&^%&*%&^%*&%! ^^

what's wrong with her sister? i mean in the chapters that are out she is a total b*** ! i myself have two sisters - older and younger, and even in the lowest of our relationships there were never even the thought to do something of the things she did to her sis'....... and why the hell is Chiaki putting up with it confused
well basicly this is the only problem in the manga for me. i get it if there were some kind of problems with the sister, but the stuff she does are pretty nasty... otherwise it's pretty good, well for a Shoujo manga....

This isn't a bad story and the characters are okay but it's those little moments of humor that really make this one good. Hopefully it doesn't drag on forever with the relationship but it doesn't seem like it will. Cute <3

Aaah this story is the greatest!! The massage tips that are given kept me alive during my exams!! *awesomely relaxing* The summary isnt clear enough!!
Chiaki is a massage crazy girl who only thinks of massages, on the bus to school she alway's see's a guy with a really stiff back. So stiff that she can see his pressure points XD. She really wants to massage that back but doesnt dare to look at the guy's face. When she coincidentally meets the guy in school, she immidiatly recongnizes the back. And offcourse begs him to let her massage him (in a very hilarious way) but ofcourse like every goodlooking slighly evil guy he has conditions....

aaah its just a really cute series. And chiaki is adorable and Yousuke is really funny XD although a bit mean! You got to read it!!!!!!!

I guess the summary can make it seem pretty cliched, but I still think the premise is pretty interesting. After reading the first couple of chapters I find its quite an enjoyable read

Not so sure I want to bother continuing after the first chapter... A lot of text that leads nowhere... Kind of a sucky premise: player boy and massage-obsessed girl in a mutual contract

Bothers me that she looks like an elementary school student and he looks like a teacher.
