This was super cute! The romance was terribly slow, though, but when it developed it was hilarious XD The pairings were also quite funny, and some parts made me laugh like crazy. The manga is so cute and sweet! The dresses they made are also amazing, though when Ageha modeled the 2nd time the back was not well done, in my opinion :/ At first the drawing style threw me off, but the it was actually cute after a while...The plot, although mostly expected, was always made humorous by the characters...it was an amazing read. I'm waiting for the next release, was throwing a fit when I finished all available chapters > < finished reading it in half a day!
this latest chapter is an extremely poor translation.
I'm so disappointed as thought this would be finished a couple years ago and it's taken so long and still 2 tankobon left and now very poor translation.

I love this manga and I cant wait for more (updates)^ ^ This manga is adorable and is recommended to all shoujo lovers. The art is nice and the dresses are detailed!! The manga is a slow romance, I agree it is a bit cliche, but a lot of things are unpredictable as well as predictable. This manga shows amazing character growth, and each of the main characters has a detailed back story!! You'll definitely love it!
Everything about this manga is beautiful, the story,art and the romance. I recommend this manga to all shoujo lovers out there. This manga is definitely a must read beacause all the characters are lovable,and the romance is slow and sweet. There are some cliche scenes but there are way more unpredictable scenes. Every side charcters has their own story but it doesn't steal any spotlight from the official pairing.
If you love character growth in a story this manga is for you.
Know what to expect, before reading it
First of all this is a shoujo manga, so of course it's filled with cliches. Being a long series, also means the romance will be slow to happen (8 volumes, to be exact), not to mention love triangles, and at least a few misunderstandings. The good news? None of these things will make you want to stop reading it, but rather it adds to the character development. Would it have been better, had the main characters, been more forward about their feelings from the start? You betcha! But then it would have gone against their personality/past experience.
Now that you have been warned, here is the bonus about this series....After they confess their feelings for one another, it's smooth sailing for them. It becomes more a slice of life, which is one of my favorite parts. Also, not only do you get a full HEA at the end, but you have a whole volume dedicated to it. Thereby tying any loose ends without feeling rushed. The side characters are quite hilarious throughout the series, which helps A LOT too.

loved it !!
i loved this series ! simply wonderful. the art was brilliant and this manga made me laugh so much. the romance was cute. i personally love this kind of manga. when i see the dresses they make i just cant help but drop my jaw... its a MUST read manga. u'll love it !! i've read till chap.56 and i cant wait for more!!
I felt the need to give this a nine because of the warm and fuzzy feelings it gives me. Ageha has a certain charm to her. Well, all the characters have charm to them. No matter how cliche or perfect they seem, they couldn't fit their roles better. They're memorable and distict. This manga is extremely character based, so if you don't like that then turn away now.
It has a unique art style; clean and lovely <3 Yeah, the guys look like chicks, but I don't mind that. (When you read as much shoujo as I do, you get used to it.)
If you're looking for a good shoujo, and don't mind a bit of cliche, then I recommend this.

The art was what really drew me to this manga, though the plot and humour got me pretty good too. Ageha and Yukari's romance is, personally, pretty overdone, though; what I really liked were the angst-ridden bits between Mitsuya and Tsuyu and I'm slavering for more of that (in the next chapter!). I'd say that Ageha and Yukari aren't the strongest characters of this manga, not that any of them stand out particularly - but it is specifically this vivid cast of characters that is V.B. Rose's strength and lure. Basically a showcase of sweet, fluffy shoujo cliches Hidaka-sensei manages a fresh spin on it using her gorgeous art and gift for not-too-saccharine romance, and I can't wait to see more of it.
I like it but the main dude looks like a girl
Seriously, the main love interest, he looks exactly like a girl. It's disturbing when they put the main character and him next to each other I can't tell which ones the girl sometimes it's led to some confusing moments to me.
Shouldn't Sekai de Ichiban Daikirai be put in the 'related series' category? Yes the main character isn't directly related to it but there are a few characters from Sekai de Ichiban Daikirai that are in this series, included the main character from it.
I love this series, need to catch up on it, it's story and humor caught me from the very beginning.
