Great woman behind pathetic MC   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

The MC is a dickless wonder but the woman after him is everything a guy can ask for. His life sucks ass and he is constantly trying to reject the one undeserved lifeline that's been thrown to him. It's amazing to think anyone could love such a miserable little troll.

The saving grace of this story is the woman trying to save him. Kind, beautiful, empathetic and willing to support him financially during his time of need, most in his situation would at least show a little gratitude instead of demand to be allowed to wallow in his misery. His future self must have been a damn fine man because current him is a whiny bitch.

I am a big fan of comedy romance and did a search and the cute cover got my attention. Without reading the synopsis I dug right in.. and just wow just wow. I haven't gotten far, just a few chapters in and I can see why the teen is hesitant I would be damn frightened. She is scary.

Those who throw insult at him have issues. No one in their right mind will accept anyone who claims to be their spouse from the future, especially after your fathers wake. The whole relationship is ridiculous. One is just discovering themselves and the other needs to get milked.

The basic premise of the story is nothing new (beautiful woman from the future comes and dotes on a, at best, tepid male protagonist). Art is typical of its genre, but is still aesthetically pleasing.

The more realistic concerns regarding this novel is the seemingly lack of any serious consideration behind anything other than the ludicrous relationship between the female and male protagonists. There is no real character development other than a few moments of the MC's desires to overcome the shadow cast by his future self (which the manga doesn't flesh out as a real emotion with any substance). Also, the manga completely fails to consider the implications of the premise (e.g. no mention of female protagonist's former life other than she was a female university student).

Overall it's an alright short gig if you're interested in mindlessly absorbing basic content.

Contrary to the majority of works giving us a normal mc mysteriously attracting a beautiful woman, at least here she has a motive to love him, since she married him in her past (his future).

It's just like Oku-san

A loveable married woman who wants to be with her husband all along, but this time the wife comes from the future. I know the plot is a bit absurd just for the wife from the future (as expected from the Harada/Seguchi duo), but she's adorable and really similar to Oku-san (c'mon, the pinky hair, the voluptuous boobs, loyal love for her husband, the fact she really loves the terrible and insecure MC no matter who stupid and clumsy he is, the typical "love at the first sight" couple, a pure relationship, a wife who wants the affect for their husband doing cute things and the most important; she behaves like a real wife. This isn't a coincidence).

If you like the vanilla and a cute couple this is for you. Don't miss it.

Very mixed feelings

At first I really enjoyed it, especially the sweet story and art style. But over time I became frustrated with the childish MC. Development is very slow, both his and the relationship between the two. I felt like was being dragged along while always waiting for proper communication. By the time the MC began growing into something less frustrating, it ended. I don't know if it was axed or not, but the ending felt very rushed. The first handful of chapters before the drama and end were great though.

Entertaining but not 'good'

I wouldn't call this a good story with good plot and character development, however it kept me entertained for 2 hours. The huge amount of focus on her boobs every time they introduced her at the start of many chapters was actually really annoying. There were some plot holes though like at the start the concept was 16yo MC is same person as 41yo MC, and then it goes to they are different, and then it's current and future FC is same person and therefore it doesn't matter which one he gets with... Either way it was good enough for shallow entertainment. On a side note I'd love to have a Marina XD

Time Travel and ecchi done right.

This is one of the few manga out there that takes a typical Ecchi scenario where a pretty girl suddenly appears in a guy's life, but then goes out of its way to actually flesh the scenario out and play it to its natural conclusion in a cohesive, logical way. Most manga in this genre introduce the girl with a random theme like, "Oh, I'm the daughter of the deceased demon lord, now I must live here." And then commences to rarely touch upon the circumstances that brought them together. RE:Marina consistently brings up the fact that Marina is from the future, and somewhen out there is a future Rinnosuke waiting for her.

The manga doesn't drag on like most silly ecchi romances do. Make no mistake, the bulk of the material is just pointless Ecchi romance, which I enjoy, but throughout the story the main character never ceases to stop thinking about the circumstances that are causing his situation with Marina to come about. And naturally, those circumstances do all play great significance in how the manga concludes. What I'm trying to say is that this manga has AN ACTUAL DECENT STORY THAT ULTIMATE CONCLUDES IN A LOGICAL FASHION DICTATED BY THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CAUSED THEM TO COME ABOUT.

tldr; its good.

Also, my personal theory for why Marina remembers Rinnosuke in the ending:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
To understand how the timeline overlaps, you have to remember some key events.
In the final chapter, Rinnosuke doesn't introduce himself to Marina until she's 23 years old. This is an important detail. In the first chapter, Marina tells use they met and started dating when she was only 20, and he falls ill three years later. So this is when Marina goes back in time, AT THE AGE OF 23.

So if the year she turned 23 is when Marina leaves the timeline, because timetravel is theoretically stagnant, then the year she turned 23 is also when she re-enters the timeline when Rinnosuke comes back to get her. So what you have to understand is that the Marina we are seeing at the end there isn't a new Marina with the old Marina's memories. She is actually the old Marina continuing where she left off when she initiated the time travel.
