Cute shoujo, nice enough art

The first story is fun, with a witty heroine, the plot being realistic and very relatable. Highlarious dialogues in some panels, or maybe it's just the scanlators doing a bang up job. The heroine's selfish antics really do amuse over and over. And expressions.... don't even get me started! How can you create that cornucopia of feelings on a black and white face! Great art. Must read.

The second story is interesting, it's a bit more trying that your normal fluff coz the guy's a tsundere without the dere part. And the girl's a glutton for punishment. It's not healthy the relationship they seem to display in that, but it's something that makes you wake up and take notice that in reality, you may keep hoping for a Prince to resurface from the person you place on a pedestal, but it may never completely happen for you. It's a missable read, nothing horrid about it, but the doki doki is just so so.

Third story is cute in itself, but I like how it thumbed its nose at shoujo tropes which associate looks with personality types. Here a prince type character has a past that far rivals his current circumstance and a sweet megane who isn't too diffident to speak her mind and is moderately popular and a genuinely nice person throughout. Aahh a breath of fresh air it was too!

Fourth story is again a bit on the tame side, it shows possibly the opposite of love at first sight. It's more mature and realistic perhaps, but nothing seriously engrossing. I only finished reading it coz I couldn't leave an unfinished story in the middle. Art in this one is OK, 4/10 maybe.

PS Smut is amost non existent in most of the stories, the mangaka just patched on a bit in the last pages when she remembered "Oh this is in the smut category right?" First story has a bit of cute pg13 stuff, and the second an intimate scene or two, but nothing more.

Pretty decent for smut

In this collection, except for story 2, is a showcase of oneshots straying from the "typical" characters.

Story 1: About a selfish girl, but eventually falls for her reunited elementary school acquaintance, whom is very girly that you think he's gay. Anyhow, I love the guy, he's far from a tsundere I love the fact that he's very devoted to her and sees all of her good points despite of the female lead being a b**tch to him.

Story 2: Didn't like it in the first three pages, so I skipped, and oh it's the couple in the cover is these guys

Story 3: About a popular boy who secretly loves porn and a girl found out his secret?! But, wait, how about her's? I like the female lead in this one, she is very mature and if I was the guy too, I would fall for her biggrin

Story 4: About a guy with a high IQ that asks the resident playgirl classmate for love advice?! I love this one as well, it's really fluffy and cute, how do I describe it? I love their chemistry personally, and especially pure-hearted meganes, which is VERY rare ooh >////<

In summary, it's a decent, not epic, but it is a pleasant read for those that are tired of those typical smuts with a stupid dominating guy (which honestly I don't mind as long as it's 'done' right) sexually harassing a girl and all, so I would recommend this to rabid shoujo smut lovers and even non smut lovers as it has a minimal amount of smut.
