I love slice of life manga when it is done well. Stories like "Love So Life" are adorable, and I love that the romance is not central to the story.

Romantica clock, however, is 90% fluff and 10% actual, meaningful content. Everything is SO lighthearted that I can't really take it seriously. It gets boring rather fast (and i've read up to chapter 15). Actually, the only reason I pushed past the first chapter was the art. It was interestingly bubbly and cute, so I wanted to stick around for more.

But I've had enough. This manga wasn't anything special.

I felt like all the reviews here were written with hasty opinions (which makes sense, since there are only 10 chapters scanlated), so I thought I'd add my two cents after having read up through chapter 35.

Fans of Maki Youko will find more of her usual fare--general hilarious fluff, hyperactive characters contrasting gloomy characters, and a gradual darker theme. As is also typical of Maki Youko, romance takes a second seat to themes like family relationships and friendships. Don't be fooled by the cover--the two main characters are Aoi and Akane, a pair of twins, but there is no incest to be found in this manga. The themes have more to do with reestablishing a broken family bond and how they develop their relationship/support as sister and brother after years of alienating each other (although if you REALLY want there to be, there's enough hints at a sister complex to satisfy you).

The girl starts out as an idiot, but she eventually decides to study harder and catch up to him. Combine that with her generally strong-willed, positive attitude and she turns into a very likeable protagonist. The love interests of both twins are people you end up rooting for (Shin is adorable), and there's generally little drama/insecurity that is typical of shoujo manga in their relationships. On the contrary, there's a slow development of trust and support, which is a lot more realistic than your typical shoujo. I find it nice and refreshing.

Anyway, bottom line is that if you liked her older stuff, definitely give this one a read as well. A lot of her recent stuff have been series that ended abruptly, so I'm happy to see this one is going strong. Probably one of her better series since Aishiteruze Baby.

I couldn't get what was so special about this.

After seeing 12 chapters, you get a better feel for the story. I think its more like a slice of life with shoujo cliches. We'll see how it goes.

Update: I hate how the brother/male lead is always super capable and the female lead is an absolute idiot. There are rare moments that capture my interest but I hate wading through, Oh yeah, Male Lead is super know it all and is so dependable and the Female Lead is an absolute ditz. Here I was thinking that the female lead's judo ability would mean something, but the mangaka doesn't bother fleshing that out.

It gets really boring. Just read for art.

I think it's supposed to write about the experiences of twins, the sibling/familial love as they progress through their middle school and then high school lives. I got tired after 20 chapters.

The art is eye-catching, the male lead sure is handsome. So as his twin sister.
Even though the story is cliche, it's just heart warming and fluffy.
Although it would be more fun if

Aoi has a thing for Akane all along and he was just good at hiding it.

Still, the story is fun to read.

Typicial shoujo, we all know where this is going. The girl is loud, obnoxious and dumb. The boy is good at everything and does everything according to what the girl says. Boring story.

The storyline is kind of predictable though I still enjoy this series.
I'm not into big-eyed girls but eh, I was bored so I ended up reading this manga and it's not that bad though.
Cute characters, typical story plot, I think this shoujo is good for beginners smile
Still, one more thing...

I'm not sure how this can be listed as a romance. I've read 3 chapters so far and I just didn't find this that interesting. Akane is the stupid pretty sister who is in competition with her smart twin, that's about all this story is about.
