Description
From Aerandria Scans:

Takamura Uru takes her mother’s remarriage as an opportunity to strike out on her own and begin a part time job. Filled with the thought of “If only I could make someone happy…”, she begins working at Café Bohneur, a shop famous for cakes; but the employees, Ichirou-kun and Shindou-san, turn out to be incredibly unsociable. These two, though frightening at first glance, begin to change something inside of her. This is the start of a romance about Uru’s search for happiness.

Contains the Oneshot "Suitei Seinen Shoujo"

Good setup but got boring very quickly

I dropped it after a while because it was too much repetition, and the actual romantic content was almost non existent. I think this titled was probably aimed at younger girls (12-13) and for someone a little older like myself, this title just doesn't cut it.

That's the bad thing about shoujo, you can't really go by the description or the series tags. You never know what your getting or for what age group until you start reading the story.

CLICHE

A simple, sweet manga if you're looking for a nice cliche where everyone falls in love with the protagonist and everyone has one or two interesting character quirks to spice things up. It's like every other manga out there, but there's technically nothing wrong with it (besides everything being overdone) so I couldn't give it a score lower than a 7. The characters are likable...2D but likable. I got to the 7th volume before I gave up, so it is worth a look. Don't force yourself to finish it though.

It's cute but it wasn't my cup of tea though. I thought it was unnecessarily long and the plot went way off from where it started. That is to say, some of the stuff that happened later kinda came out of nowhere to me. The "plot" appeared too late (I would seriously say the main conflict starts at chap. 51) for my liking and the ending left more questions than it answered. Also, most conflicts were so predictable and episodic, I had to skip them.

This manga would have been a lot better as a simple comedic love-polygon type story.

Loved it! (But had a weird and rushed ending)

I loved it, it made me laugh and it was very enjoyable, not overly romantic or dramatic like others. However the ending seemed to be too rushed and weird compared to the rest of the manga, such a shame sad

And I really wish she would've chosen Sou... it would have been a refreshing turn of events.

Picked this up a long time ago and only just finished it (though I skipped quite a bit). It's comedic and adorable, your typical shoujo; but be warned it's undesirably lengthy and will likely bore you at times.

This manga was really good! It was light, cute but definitely not too fluffy or over-dramatic. The main characters aren't whiny or annoying at all, they were all very strong and independent. I especially love Uru. Despite her innocent smile, she is quite the strong character, she's not like other shoujo girls who rely on the guy to solve everything. She does things herself and she figures out ways to solve things without causing trouble to the people around her. It's a light heart-felt manga but it's definitely worth a read. You'll fall in love with all the characters and their character development.

One thing:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I wish there was more romance. I mean, it was cute and all but it was so slow and the ending wasn't satisfying enough for me. I woulda been happy if they kissed in the end when he comes back or something. AND OMG ICHIROU!! Ugh.. it's hard when the main character gets close to both guys and both guys care for her equally but she has to choose one but she doesn't choose the one who makes it the most clear how much he cares for her. and it's just heartbreaking...


Overall a 9.

Gets Boring

Although repetive with very shallow conflicts that were all easily resoved each chapter, it was still sweet and likable for the first five volumes or so. I started to get bored even by that point, though, so when then scanlation quality for the volumes that were unfinished by TP went downhill fast, it wasn't worth the struggle to read it.

Overall i liked reading this. It was different than i imagined it to be, but in a cute way. All the characters are loveable and the storyline down the road dug into more complex issues which i wasnt expecting. Uru, i dont know why but she reminds me of Tohru, you cant help but love her and want to protect her (even if she probably doesnt need it with that incredible strength of hers) xD

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I really love both Shindou and Ichirou and knew from the start who she would end up with. Its a shame it really wasnt Ichirou though since I felt they had a strong chemistry with another and even more interaction but at the same time Im not disappointed she didnt end up with him (maybe since I already knew from the start). Im a little upset though you didnt get to see Uru and Shindou kiss in the end! :( Everything was pretty rush and i felt it wouldve had a better close with all the other characters if it were just another volume longer.

I didnt like how the author, even after three years, had all the other guys STILL in love with Uru. I only wished even if there wasnt another girl in the picture for all of them at least have them over and happy for her instead of still aiming for Uru when she's already in a relationship. But its OK I made up my own story for them all anyway with a very good ending. especially Ichirou T,T

I love how this manga starts off completely pure and innocent, but has a slight dark side to the story. It was nice to read a manga that isn't always happy. I kinda wished that there was a little more darkness to it though to bring a little more realism.

Every single character is somehow related to one another, as well the events that occurred in the manga. It makes the story really predictable.. so that was a turn off for me.

The one thing I did not like..were the romantic developments.. They were kind of awkward and a little choppy, especially Shindou and Uru's. It felt like it was just missing a few monologues/dialogues. Actually some parts of the story were a bit awkward, but it's still pretty good. After a couple of chapters, it didn't really have a main plot, it just introduced more characters with mini stories. Then it gradually started having a plot after some character appearances since they all have a connection to one another. It all started to make sense
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and everything was resolved, but the last chapter was disappointing..especially since you don't get to see Shindou's face at all. -_____-" And the fact that Ichirou, Kenshi, Sou, and Tsukishiro are all still stuck in a one sided love after 3 years is depressing! You'd think at least two of them would move on. We also never got to see more about the Manager and his life, is it supposed to stay as a mystery forever? GAH! THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS LEFT UNKNOWN. /sobs
The ending was rushed, and left me wanting more..

Overall, I love this story and my rating is a bit bias. I also really love how Matsuzuki drew their expressions though, it's so adorably funny. :3

This is honestly one of my favorite mangas of all time. I would highly encourage everybody to read it! It's so uplifting and funny and it's a touching story all at the same time. I absolutely adore this, the characters are wonderful, the plot is really enjoyable and it's innocent and cute. I love this. Please read it!
