Awkward and cute

Some of the parts in this definitely felt forced; but I like all the characters (despite how flat Asahi became as the story progress) the main love-triangle managed to grow during the entire run.

It was definitely interesting to see Shimana and Landlord's relationship grow, and I think the awkwardness between the both made it realistic for me (despite its shoujo cliches)

It's a quick read on one of those days and definitely recommended for fans of Taiyou no Ie

Give it a second read.

Try reading it a second go.

I gave it a second and admittedly loved it. The first time I read this was way back in high school. I pretty much have the exact reaction with you guys, Shimana is weak, Zen is cute, Taiga is weird haha. Then I gave it a second read.

What I love the most is the bond with the characters. They all seem like a real family. There's no small drag out emotion. HONESTY, is what makes this awesome.

Zen's pushiness can be annoying at times but he gave it his best.
Shimana's weakness is also her strength and I love how she is honest and fully rejected Zen the first time.
Asahi is the probably the coolest of them all.
Miura is GODDAMN FUNNY!!! One of my faves.
Saeko is perfect.
others etc etc....

LASTLY, Taiyou Fujiwara a.k.a LANDLORD
He's a young adult but has a childish thinking when it comes to love. Again throughout the series you could witness how he becomes open and admitted to liking Shimana and how he was pathetic and all. My favorite character.

All in all After reading it again, I had a different view. Like Taiga I grew up and see some of the other details of the stories and how it was portrayed.....
There was no mushiness and those usual Shoujo shitty fluffs just pure flow sweetness.

The female lead

The female lead is way too shallow, the art was somewhat fine but after reading about 5 to7 chapters I couldn't take it and I dropped it without a second thought
I can't even say the storyline is that good! honestly, If I can't even sympathize with the lead characters then what's the point of wasting my time my reading such a thing.
You know what I absolutely can't stand? a stupid wishy washy girl who has nothing to do in her life but think about the guy she likes and expects him to do the stupid sh*t that she imagines in her useless brain(sorry I know I sound like I'm over-reacting but the manga was too disappointing for me, seeing the rating I expected something better) like, really? going out and then it rains so you sit there like an idiot and imagines wither the cool handsome guy you like very much will run for you with an umbrella in his hands.... just get your friggin ass back into the house and take a friggin shower, then go to sleep and never wake up
and really? helping the guy she likes to get together with the girl he likes? didn't that get old already? I wonder if that part was meant to make the readers touched or something? with all honesty this part was so tiring to read because of the amount of boredom it contains!

I get the feeling that the mangaka was trying really hard for a meaningful type of feeling with this story, the kind of feeling you get from reading mangas like Cat Street or Fruit's Basket or something, but it just doesn't work!!! The characters are so unappealing! The only character I like is Zen!!! If the manga was about Zen I would love it!! I don't like the main character and her love interest because it just keeps going around in circles!! It's getting so boring! I managed to slog through to Vol 8 hoping it will get more interesting but I'm just about ready to drop it!!! Uggghh~!!

Zen is absolutely adorable but his obsession with pandas is kinda...weird EVERYTHING is pandas?? lol!

Embarassing female lead

The main character is so wishy washy and noncommital that it's hard to take it seriously. She acts like a child yet seems to fall deeply in love with any older male that looks at her kindly.

...Well...what can I say? I'm kinda half way into it and the most problematic thing that irks me to a large degree is the strange pacing. It's like a rocket with no sense of anyone manning it. The falling in love part is so quick. It would actually be okay if it didn't include falling in and out and then in again in a span of like 3? volumes. Like first love is fast but then after Asahi, it was into another love like that. Too quick for me to wrap my mind around the sudden shifts in this. Not to mention the shifts in scenes or talking. OHGOSH. Sometimes it feels like the author is slightly drunk because the pacing is not tied together well enough. Almost like she cut off scenes and pasted other cut ones together *Updating after finishing*

This is your average shoujo, stock characters for the most part: try-hard female, tsundere male, bishounen, etc... The art is nice on the eyes though, which is its main selling point over the truly average shoujo story. But if just want to read a simple shoujo, then it's perfect. There's nothing really extraordinary about it (not that there really needs to be).

The first couple of chapters struck me as humorous and the tone was different than the usual shoujo fare. The premise is nothing new (girl going to live in potential love interests' house) but the execution made it forgivable so I was interested in reading. This may be a typical shoujo set-up, but the way the story is told is anything but. The characters have personality and there are funny moments galore (in my opinion, anyway). The more I read, the more I loved it and I was dreading the 34th chapter because I didn't want it to end. I wish more people would enjoy this series, the mangaka is excellent at her red herring romances and the way she developed the main love interest was just pure joy to read.

The drawing style and tone evolved; the former into more tight lines and overall attractiveness (and wonderful facial expressions!), the latter into more familiar romance-y will-they-won't-they waters. But I've grown to love the characters (and I was ecstatic that my intuition as to the true pairing was spot on) so I don't condemn this series for it.

I agree with reviewer PansyWansyLinsy in that this shoujo is shoujo done the right way. Part of the reason I read through the practical set-up of the beginning (the predictable love interest, Asahi) is that I had a sneaking suspicion that the story WASN'T going to continue that thread... and I was right - Takano Ichigo has a magical way with the story and the characters and the way she lets them interact and grow. The heroine undergoes a maturation and her evolving love interests represent that:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Asahi is the typical shoujo love, the first crush of youth, and Shimana getting rejected by him and getting over him is a necessary part of her growth; Zen is more of a wild card, the guy who unexpectedly falls for her and chases her - here, Shimana is the one who is chased, not the chaser, as she was with Asahi, and her understanding that she didn't love Zen shows that she knows herself enough to not fall for a guy she didn't love simply because he likes her; and finally, Taiga is the mature love - she enters this mindset having experienced the other two loves; it's perfect because in retrospect, it's like this is set up from the beginning - of course Shimana wouldn't fall for Taiga in chapter 1, since she wasn't mature enough and she didn't have the experience she gained after Asahi and Zen.
I could go on and on about why I love Shimana and Taiga..

I knew this was the typical shoujo manga but I don't have the heart to drop it. It's so lovey dovey and cute. It annoys me when they go "does he love me? who's that other woman" blahblahblahblah but usually they give up and go into depression and get all pathetic. She doesn't and it's pretty fun. She even admits that it's rude of her but haha love it.

ok, so this is super cute manga! but only at beggining.
girl is pretty typical shojo, and very typically real life girl. and by that i mean the hormonal 16yr old type. the type who 'falls in love' every two weeks. that sort of girl.

so not that original but quite realistic. it's kind of funny too. a few awkward moments, especially when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she starts falling for the landlord, because till that point they built him up to be a brotherly type of person so it felt a weeeeee bit wrong. just a bit. and very awkward. can't stress that enough.

the art is pretty good aswell. i suggest people skip the 18th to around 19th chapters if they want to avoid the OMG SO ANNOYING SHOJO GIRL moments. especially the end of the 19th door.

it was insanely unrealistic and cringeworthy.
