It makes a cute, one time read =D

It could have been better in several ways:
1). I feel that Hayashi sensei fell way too quickly for Ichijou. I wished their love took a little longer to form, instead of so instantaneously. I am pretty sure the author could have elaborated with more ideas, before they became a pair.
2). What was that between Itsuki sensei, Hayashi sensei, and Ichijou? That love triangle was so lame. There could have been more tension and rivalry. Although, the history between Hayashi and Tsuki was pretty deep, it could have been manipulated to add more oomph to the triangle.
3). What about Yonekura and Ninomiya? They could have been a sub plot to this manga and helped stretch the story out more. Or even better by adding Mitsui as the third triangle to this particular relationship?
Overall, it was a cute story. It is something I would read only once. As you have read above, it was a quick read as the plots were hastened. It really could have been better. By the way, I love Yonekura. He is the maiden type, so I was pretty surprised to see him punch Ninomiya for messing with his best friend, Ichijou. Not only that, but I love his evil and angry expressions. It is so refreshing to see that. Due to all this, I feel like Yonekura would make a devilish seme.
Wow, very surprising!
This is a great yaoi manga. It brings nothing fresh, but reading it, it feels fresh. Yome was the best, so overdramatic and cute.
I also liked the fact that

the uke was an S, but changes quickly to submissive during their sex.
Its just amazing. Of course its the cliche plot where a rich-brat find someone who doesn't think only of money but add his blank friend plus his sex-deprived and deviant friend who is just absolutely adorable, you get the perfect comedy. Definitely a must read.cliche but it will have you at the edge of your seat doubling over in laughter.
Still a favorite
I guess once you've read so many yaoi, this is just a simple classic plot with shallowistic love. But if you're like me and read it early on, it's absolutely adorable! I still adore this manga reading it three years later. The character of Ringo is just too cute! He acts all cool and tough when in reality he's quite insecure. With the intrusion of the ex, we see this weaker side of the 'dumb ass' man. His hot and cold personality made the story. No matter how much he teased Ichi, he still loves him!
It's a classic manga story that definitely goes down as a Mishima favorite for me. Its funny plot line and lovable characters make it irresistible. Though, if you dislike younger semes/older ukes, you might want to look elsewhere. One of Mishima's key traits is the unlikely seme. ; )
Well, I guess it's quite cute, but...I'm sorry, comedy's not for me =/ I wasn't much interested from the description already - the only reason I actually read it was because a friend of mine said it was awesome. It's not believable how Ichijou falls in love with Hayashi. He just met him, and already liked him because of some stupid "he's not afraid of my dad's power" thing. And then, he didn't do anything really meaningful to get Hayshi to fall for him, he only did some childish stuff. I didn't believe Hayashi loved him, either. As a result, Ichijou saying "I love you" all the time made the expression be overused and not have the same impact. All of that caused me to even LIKE Itsuki when he appeared - and aren't readers supposed to hate him? - and think he actually loves Ringo despite what he's done - still, I didn't cry at that part, and it's supposed to be a really sad past.
And frankly, I was scared that Ichijou was the seme. C'mon, he's such a girl! He even cries and stuff...I prefer manly semes. Although I do like his determined side. But I'm actually pretty much [i]into[/] that seme/uke division. I don't like when the line is blurred, and it's not only when it comes to sex. Semes should be who's more agressive in the relationship, while ukes should be a bit more submissive - but not enough to be girly. Also, for a teacher x student relationship to work, the student has to be very mature (especially to be the seme!!) and Ichijou is such a baby!
Hayashi, on the other hand, was quite likable. I like his personality and his devilish side! He's so mean I cracked up! And as for the side characters, along with the main couple, they were too plain not to be a total stereotype, but I ike them even so. Especially Mitsui, who got t be my favorite.
But the main issue for me was: I was much more interested in Yone's necessity to fall in love than on the main couple's relationship. I wished he'd be with Mitsui, but it turned out even that wasn't how I expected, since the extras are about him with Ninomiya.
As for the plot...it's SO overdone! Even Mishima-sensei has already done a similar story (if not the same thing) herself! Try reading "Reverse!", also by her, and you'll see it. Plus, it didn't get my attention long enough to keep me reading it. There were times I really wanted to give it up. And then there's the main problem: of course they are teacher x student, but no one cares, because it's totally allowed for a teacher and a student to be holding hands in front of the whole school! If you want some serious teacher x student, read Ano Kado wo Magatta Tokoro Ahh...and I'm getting sick of criticizing =/ I know a lot of people will complain about my comment, but...they're relationship was rushed. As well as the sex. In only this bit they suddenly loved each other deeply and intensely, and Ringo just basically said "fuck me" as soon as they confessed to each other, even though he had a previous trauma... Ichijou, to make it worse, never went out with anybody and was probably a virgin, and of course he knew how to have sex, especially with a man. He didn't even get nervous. And then there was the "suck me" part. I'm sorry, but it wasn't sexy at all! It totally ruined the moment, to be sincere.
The only reason I'm not rating this 1 is because I don't hate it. It's not that it's particularly bad...it's quite cute, but nothing new and full of cliché situations. If you're just looking for some distraction, to spend time and stuff, it's okay to make you laugh a little and because it's lovely. But if you're actually looking for a deep, intense plot, a title that's going to be forever in your memory, "Miwaku no Ringo" is not for you.
PS: How can so many of you give this and 10 and said "you've read a lot of yaoi"? I'd expect this from someone who hasn't read much, but from someone so experienced, how can you rate cliché-ism as one of your favorites? (because that's what 10s mean to me)

story's fairly good but not one of the best i admit, but the characters made it work out. Ringo's personality was kinda weird, what with him being the tough talking 'uke' but strangely it fits the story better. i loved it when he kept teasing Ichijou... gosh, he's so mean! >.< hahaha really cute story. fun read
Definitely worth a read!
I loved Ringo! And Ichijou, Yone, Mii-kun, Nanomiya and even Itsuki... the characters are just so much fun and they totally draw you into the story, which is pretty good, too. The humour is a delicious attraction.
Very cute! One of my fave from this Kazuhiko sensei! I know i wil read this again and again! I really love how the student is the seme and uke teacher...made me go all warm and fuzzy when I saw that. I loooove it!!
i love Ichijou 's friends especially Yone, (he is so cute!) normally in yaoi mangas the friends are jerks that mess up the main couple, or their in love with one of the main characters. but the two boys did everything they could to help Ichijou simply because they care about him.
