From Dazzling Scans:

The unemployed Shibata Michiko is betting everything she has on her romance with a younger man—literally. In order to keep him happy, she deprives herself of the things she wants and buys him expensive clothing and accessories. Since she's flat out broke, she needs to find a job before she starves to death and loses her young love interest. However, Michiko discovers that the boy was never interested in her romantically. Depressed at being dumped and after a series of unsuccessful interviews, she bumps into Kurosawa—an intimidating former boss she used to dislike.

This is actually good

If you read older reviews maybe you'll feel discouraged, but it's not like that. In the beginning the MC is really dumb and loses money because she keeps paying for stuff for her boyfriend, but this story is about how she evolves from that and start becoming a better person overall. The male MC is also a nice character that has to evolve in other ways, and I like how he helps her to not be an idiot all the time.

I've been reading this on mangalator and it's pretty depressing at times since the MC is a very self-deprecating person and always thinks everything is her fault, but she always finds a way to get back on her feet and start again. This is also a pretty funny manga, but if you're familiar with Nakahara Aya's work you already know that.

I'm sure the MC will change a lot, since there's a lot of development to happen and this is Nakahara's work, so I'm looking foward to read more of this and see how it turns out

It's getting interesting, if you keep reading it and not only take a glance.
The new 6th chapter showed a lot of potential, I think it'll be heart-wretching and those romantic author's way, fufufu. I'll looking forward for the next chapters.

How many romance mangas do you know of where there are two girls who like one guy and it doesn't devolve into some melodramatic mess? None? Maybe 2? Well read Dame na then.

I'm giving this story a high rating because although the main is kind of an idiot (in a stupid but lovable way), she has potential that we haven't seen yet in 5 chapters (I'm banking on the fact that Nakahaya Aya generally does her characters justice). The mangaka handles real life situations in a lighthearted and super HILARIOUS way and the drawings are clean and adorable. I'm sold.

So the leads are kinda boring, but the ex-girlfriend character is one of the best I've seen in a shoujo/josei series in a long time. She's smart, kind, sensible, basically the type of female character I'd love to see as a lead in a different series.

one of the most ridiculous female lead I've encountered... she really pisses me off D: I agree with all mangafan007 said... I just could not believe this is written by nakahara aya... I mean I love all of her stories...except this. I'm not sure if she will have a character development along the way but I have a feeling she won't... she's too stupid to learn.

Shallow, Dumb, Immature, Ungrateful Female

If you're looking for a dumb, immature female lead, who believes the same lies over and over again (b/c she wants to feel useful), who realizes she should change but can't be bothered to, yet has the energy to be mean and petty and pick fights with the one person who tries to help her, this is your story! If nothing else, it's a realistic portrayal of immaturity - shallow, petty, and mean. As she's cute, a handsome prince will rescue her.
