Should have been a oneshot
The beginning feels disconnected, sort of like someone counting 1,3,5, and leaving you to wonder what happened to 2 and 4. I sort of expected this to be cute, but the way the story is being told, it isn't that at all. I found myself wishing it wasn't so long. I think it would have been a wonderful oneshot.
The manga is not bad, but it feels like it could have been so much better, especially in how the story is presented. While reading it, I couldn't help but be reminded of the annoying selfish characters from Boku to Kanojo no XXX, the whole all men are hormone crazy with absolutely no virtues really rang a bell. If you liked Boku to Kanojo no XXX, there is a high chance you'll like this.
i laugh so much that my stomach hurt. i am up to ch16 with the scantalator and there is never a boring moment here. the route is still too hazy so it is fun ttrying to guess which one he will end up with. i really like the protagonist, i dont know why people think he is annoying, just because he is not the usual mysterious handsome shoujo lead. i really like this weakling who cry and doubt himself because as a butt of the joke he is so much fun. all the other characters are also super fun, i dont hate anyone in this manga,(even the rapist, cos she add a more crueler kick to this guy who had been kicked by the fate alot.)
all in all, a very very funny manga.
It's alright, but I really hate how the author handles rape. :/ The

"he's male, so it's not really rape because all guys love sex all the time right??? HILARIOUS!!"
thing is disgusting. If you can ignore that this manga is cute. Sort of, anyway. There's nothing outstanding about this one to be honest.
bad after taste
This manga is truly funny, the male lead is annoying , the ending is unsatisfying, but the most i didin't like how the characters acted awful or unrealistic in many situation. well simply put this is a fairy tale for little girls as it is supposed to be and it does it pretty well.

Bwahahaha! eh? ... Öhm?
I really don't know whether to love or to hate this one. It is so hilarious, if you don't take the topic of being ugly or not too serious. Sometimes I burst into laughter just to find that it's actually also kind of sad^^ However, this manga will give you a lot of fun! The main character is a little annoying, but it's all right. When he's beautiful and still such a crybaby he's actually almost a little cute. Some of the other character are rather clichée, like the teacher (one of those typical smut-teachers), which is really funny and could be seen as some kind of a parody xD After a while this manga seems to develop into a harem, However... i don't like harems normally, but this one's somehow different.

It feels more like a love triangle, with two girls loving the boy, but the boy clinging to another girl...
And you can't figure out with whom he will end up... In the end I'm really happy that I gave this a try.
I really dislike this manga, but also like it at the same time. For every character you hate, you get a character you like.
Have to say for pairings, I'm liking the "sister" since she seems the only one genuinely in love.
Love it x3
i pretty much love all of morinaga's works, mostly because they're hilarious and don't follow the lines of normal shoujo manga but are AWESOME regardless. only problem is, i can only find up til vol. 3 chapter 9. i hope the groups starts translating it again ><
I absolutely love Morinaga's artwork and her humor. Her works are usually dropped by scanlators or publishing companies, though. I can't for the life of me figure out why.
The main character is so incredibly ugly at the beginning that he looks inhuman. And then the girl he likes is gorgeous, so when he gets run over by a truck (somehow, it ends up being hilarious), he makes a wish to be beautiful, it ends up being granted. The thing with Morinaga is that she can make stories about people getting in serious car accidents, getting raped, and more car accidents, and make it incredibly funny. After he got raped, I was laughing, realized that rape is a serious, horrible thing and it should be a sin that I'm laughing at it, then I started laughing again. It's just that funny.
I didn't expect that!
lol this manga started kind of boring.. but later it come kind of funny, so funny that I couldn't stop laugh. I didn't expect the main guy was raped by his not-blood-related-sister! well it turned out be very funny... still I think of it kind of sad that the main guy already had his first time.. X__X *sigh* this mangaka sure is good to surprise readers well I hope the main guy will be forever with one he liks^^, GAMBATE! o(^__~)o
I've just finished reading the series and it's really, really funny and full of twists and turns! You never know who'll get whom until teh very end, and even then, it's somewhat an open ending... But I loved it! It really seems addictive... yay^^
