From Which Scanlations:

Shuusei Kugayama is the "prince" of his high school, but he always turns down confessions--including one from Aoi Nishimori's best friend. Although she initially hates him for this, when Shuusei moves in next door to Aoi, who lives alone, she starts thinking that he might not be such a bad guy after all...

around volume 6 the main character goes extremely weak. I would even say annoying and clingy. i don'tknow how the series can be dragged for over 15 volumes...in volume 10 the main character, if possible, gets WEAKER...one actually appreciates the guy mor and more and how straight forward the guy seems to be...of course who knows, but that's my current opinion as of vol 10

There's something about these types of shoujos that tick me off. It's the fact that the heroine is downplayed significantly and that the guy can get away with being overly rude to her with the fact that he actually "loves" her. The manga (From the chapters I've read) follows the typical formulaic plotlines and content.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it begins with the two love interests living together in a small complex with the male lead continually teasing and leading the girl on. The girl then falls in love with the guy then confesses to him only to get let down. Let's also not forget the poor "nice" guy who is just there to make the male lead jealous and fall in love with our dense heroine. I honestly feel bad for the genuine nice guys in shoujo, they always get the short end of the stick.


All in all there's nothing special about this manga and if you like shoujos with the whole "he's a jerk but actually loves her" trope then this is the manga for you! It's not for me but oh well.

I hated it. It was so jumpy, and I hated the flow. But it got better over time and grew on me, it's been a long while since I've been so invested in a romantic couple in ANY manga at all. It's good. Started it to waste time and now I can't wait for the next translation <3. Yayyy The plot just flows pretty well together, I honestly couldn't obviously predict what was going to happen. I absolutely love that.

~lil edit~
In the beginning- till it gets good or you start caring- I genuinely had a blast picking on and hating all of the characters. I was just criticizing everything but that in it's own way was fun. Then it eventually got good

Seriously, this gotta be one of the most stupid shoujo mangas I've ever read. It's typical out of the typical shoujos. The storyline is too common. The 'prince' of the school and the girl is an idiot desperate to experience love as if her whole world is revolving around it. Wanting to fall in love is not a bad thing, to do stupid things that sometimes almost trample on your dignity.. At first, I thought this is gonna be a promising one since the girl had the guts to confront the guy for rejecting her friend. I thought she's gonna be one strong female character, but in the end, she's just like any other girls. :/ And there's this part that the girl says 'I want to kiss him so that I can make him happy because I love him'. <- WTF. And then she goes reading 'Advises on kissing' magazines. I really find that embarrassing and really stupid. She is also assuming in the first chapters. :/ And during the part that they were caught living together by their father, the girl insists on continuing living like that as if it's a normal thing to do. The things that happens on this manga can only exists in dreams of people in real life. LOL.

This kind of story reminds me of love 'pocketbooks' that can be purchased here in our country. Maybe a part of the reason of my dislike in this manga.

Actually, before I started to read this, I just finished Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. At first, the latter didn't impress me much. But after reading this L-DK, I realized how Tonari has much more sense and realism that I'm unable to appreciate before. LOL.

Well, for those who wants to start reading shoujos, or those who're waiting for their favorite mangas' new releases, and if you have nothing to do, it may be recommended but I suggest that you find others more worth reading. It's more like for people who has such fantasies in love. That's all.

I'm a total sucker when it comes to these types of manga...I don't know why I always choose to read it but I always end up complaining about it. And the worst part is, is that I can't seem to drop this manga LOL. Must. Finish. Till. The. End...

I think it's cute. I mean her parents approve. I think if it ended at the chapter where her father let them be together...that would have been a really cute ending..but no.

Now we'll have to see the obstacles they face..blahblahblah.

At the first few chapters I really liked this manga, it had a interesting plot and seemed nice but now having read up till chapter 35, I feel like dropping this manga because its losing its plot and it seems boring and also cause half of the stuff that happens since the new glasses boy moves in the whole story becomes depressing and annoying, but I hope things change in the next new chapters :/

i dont know why i kept reading this manga. the first chapter seems okay to read.
then aoi falls for shuusei and she started to irritating me with her desperate act to shuusei.
shuusei has no value to be likeable.
he's totally a JERK.
he treats aoi badly, and the girl just act like it's natural, nothing wrong bout it. aoi has no self-esteem. if love makes people become a fool, then aoi is a good example. i kept saying in my mind, get over it, you moron. but aoi always doing one stupidity to another stupidity.
Oh, and i hate the situations that make them closer. so NOT logical.

the stories bored me til the end. none

I just finished vol4 chap13. I don't really know the reason why I keep reading this. Maybe because there is not much text and the pictures are clear and easy to see. It's kind of light reading for me, a way to kill time while waiting for other series to be released. The plot is not good at all, everything is exaggerated, things happen so fast, there is no smooth transition T_T I guess this kind of story is for those around 15+ probably

I really love this manga cause of the way it is interlarded with many turnabout scenes and moments. It can surprise you in a way which can make you laugh really hard, or make you confused and disappointed, but not in a negative way, it just keeps your attention all the time. Especially these ending chapters, really sweet, romantic, funny and full of suspense cause of the Aoi's father now being introduced and cut in the story, just getting on our nerves cause of his meddling into their living-together life.--But, oh well, it wouldn't be so interesting if there weren't interferences alike, I just can't wait to see the final chapter. Hope it will end with them living together after all that commotion, and of course, the climax of the story would be the closing of the curtains of the manga with those packs of condoms in the fioreground which made Aoi's father go amok in the first place x) smile
