Description
A 26-year-old salaryman, Matsumaru Fumihiko, asked Miss Tanaka from his work to watch a movie with him, but she didn't show up at the movie theater. As he is about to throw away the ticket, a 20-year-old, rookie voice actress named Onda Aka asked for the ticket. The two of them end up watching the movie together.

On their way home they notice that they live near each other. That night, Aka's apartment burns down and Matsumaru offers his help. She ends up living with him, but they have to keep it a secret to keep their jobs. What will happen to this relationship that is more than friends but less than lovers?

It was decent at first but got boring and dumb as it went on

Ever wonder why so many scanlator groups keep dropping this series? Because even the scanlators can't stand this terrible writing.

At first, I love how both of them are caring and dedicated to their work life. However, the characters continuously become more dull and irrational. First off, the male mc is too insecure about his gf. It's always a constant battle of "how he will lose her to the other guy." This seems like it'll be a good setup for drama of solving their love issues but his attitude, dialogues, and choices he makes are beyond rude and downright selfish.

If it was only the male mc that acts childish, I'll have given it a average 5 for being a so-so series. However, the female character started to become worst as the series goes on. She takes every males' advances at face value and doesn't question them.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She even would ALMOST let a guy have forced sex with her because he saved her from a car accident and told her a pity story that he made-up. When he stops with the forced sex, she asks him "what's wrong? why are you stopping?" Is that what you should be saying to a rapist during that moment? And when she finds out that he was lying, she forgives him. That guy basically almost raped you and you're okay with it? Nevermind that, let's be best pals with the would-be rapist.


Seriously. I also agree with the other reviewers. She continuously rejects her BF's sex advances while easily accepting other men's advances. With her bf, she puts up a cement guard. WIth other men, she's as soft as tofu. If she hates sex with her bf so much while getting flustered with other men, just break up already so you can have sex with other men. jeez.

While reading this whole series, I don't see their romance matching. They're always fighting. They're always spout "I love you" but always do the opposite. Throughout the whole series, I was always rooting for them to break up when there's drama. They should just break up and put an end to their miserable relationship. LOL.

what is it with mangas and dumb broads, I mean like wtf is happening to seinen mangas this days, too much netorare, the dumb type. I avoid shoujo manga specifically to avoid this type of naive dumb girls somehow they keep showing up in seinen more and more. meh..

Kind of getting bored of this

I gotta say, this series is really boring. I liked it at first but it's just repeating the same thing all over.
I've read some of the raging about chapter 24, I can admit I was raging a bit because of that as well, but not for the same reason:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Aka almost had sex with that other dude with no resistance at all just because he pushed her a little bit, that was meh I suppose, the thing that makes me rage is that she keeps refusing her own BOYFRIENDS advances throughout the whole series so far(read 48 chapters) and I'm seriously contemplating dropping this show


Well, I guess it can be a good way to kill some time, but if ur looking for a good manga, keep looking, this will just get you bored halfway through

Well if author wanted me to hate main female character he succeeded in 100%. I fell so bad and angry after those 30 chapters that I cant continue to read this. Though even

killing Lucy in the end of Elfen Lied
was less disappointing. I might come back to this in the future cause it has 12 vols already, but right now I am afraid it will turn to another Virgin na Kankei. I honestly have no idea how to rate it so I leave it blank.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
One more thing why Fumiko did not admit that he slept with that girl in the beginning while she was away for a month? He was totally convinced that he did it, plus why Aka punched him even when she though he was innocent. I did not get that part. That girl never admitted it was a joke. So he would not know the truth.

People keep on trying to look on the britghside, but there isin't any, you could ask any man in the streets, that if his wife or girlfriend, had a man have sex, or halfway sex whatever you want to call that, they would consider it cheating, even if she had faith on him coming to save her, there was no resistance at all, and at the end, the guy asks her to not tell her boyfriend, and at the end she dosen't tell him or feels anything after that day, so it makes me think "SO WHAT?" cheating dosen't need to be complete, it just has to start.

Great series, despite what the others might tell you. The nerd rage some folks have about Ch 24 is ... unsettling, to say the least.

It isn't as though the male protagonist din't pull off the exact same thing a few chapters back. It seems ... a bit sexist that a lot of people base their entire judgment of the series based on that sole chapter, ya know? It gives the impression that the readers of this manga are male supremacists and that infidelity is only bad if the guilty party is female. And before you ask: I'm a guy. Sure, it left a bad taste in the mouth to read it, but come on, the mangaka has to stir up some drama in the series, else there wouldn't be anything to read.

Anyway, the series tries to be original, at least. Unlike many other romance mangas where the protagonists have to wangst 3/4 of the series before they hook up, and then needlessly wangst some more after that; Aka and Matsumaru officially pair up fairly early in the manga, and the manga is more focused on the maintainance of their relationship rather than the building of it. The story is (mostly) light and humorous, with a few rather heartwarming scenes here and there. If not for certain ... aspects of the series, it would seem more like a shounen series than a seinen. Infact, the light tone of the series rather reminds me of Mahoraba, and if you're a fan of that manga, you're probably gonna enjoy this one as well.

After reading all these rantings of people droping at the legendary rage chapter 24...I just had to see it for myself so i jumped into it head first.
I put my two sense into this.
Nothing crazy happend really...Its just that the main heroine is...whats the word? An air head? But what do you expect from a seinen/mature. Comapring this to some of the rage i've seen in the past this is like disneychap.
SO basically in a nut shell: chp 24
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The heroin lets herself get stripped naked(no panties,no bra...all gone) ready to be ploughed through by another man whilst regreting it in her head? Why regreat it while letting it happen? Is she a F*&^ng retard/air head combo?

My two sense is that if you are planing to read it, do so and disregard what people say about chp 24 its not so bad. Bad...but its a freaking seinen. Come on.

I didn't like the premise to this when I heard about it. Part of that has to lie with how the japanese label too many people with varied job occupations as Salary Man. I imagined it was going to be about some level worker that got to date a voice actress when she started out. It sounded like the kind of nasty wish fufilment of some otaku comic. But the guy is actually in Marketing, and he gets a promotion at the start of the series.

One problem is the character design of the girl makes her look too young though. She looks 15 instead of 20. Her design seems more cartoony than any other character as well. I think this would have been a better manga is it was a bit more real. The girl is unrealistically emotional to me.

It's a sometimes funny serious. But the manga is surprisingly juvenile. At the start, there was nothing to indicate that the girl would be anything but regular. but then she turns out to be a virgin(before doing it with the guy), and then apparently she's all overly innocent. That's just bad characterization. Then the manga resorts to sex scares instead of any complex feelings or anything.

Manga is sequential art but sometimes the positioning of the panels makes it feel like I'm missing parts of the story. This has happend pretty frequently with this manga, it's odd.
