From VIZ:

In company-owned rabbit-hutch apartments live tenants who can't afford to live anywhere else, and the apartment complex in which high-school girl Hatsumi Narita lives is ruled over by the rumor mongering, self-righteous Mrs. Tachibana. Get on Tachibana's bad side, and life becomes hell. When Hatsumi has to buy a pregnancy test because her popular sister Akane's period is late, Mrs. Tachibana's son, Ryoki, who used to bully Hatsumi as a kid, promises not to tell the world about Hatsumi's secret, only if she becomes his slave. Suddenly, Azusa Hatsumi's protector in their youth, reappears to save her again! He's moving back into the neighborhood! Despite the budding romance between Hatsumi and Azusa, Ryoki has control over her through the secret that could ruin the lives of everyone in Hatsumi's family, and he hasn't forgotten who his slave is!

I love Hot Gimmick! It has a GREAT STORYLINE that keeps you interested. Ignore the nasty comments. The main character may be a little dense, but she's still lovable. RECOMMENDED

i swear the God!! This is the only manga that can piss me off and it's definitly not a good thing! The only thing she's got is air in her head. Her current boyfriend treats her like a slave and her ex is mean and yet she says she cares! I wonder if there exists girls like that in the real world?
This is just dumb!

Honestly, this manga pisses me off like no other. At first, I thought it'd be a good read because it's entertaining to watch a girl gain backbone. However, she still hasn't gained any sort of backbone; she's a complete pushover. She lets guys manipulate her and it makes me sick.

Reading about a girl who can't fend for herself isn't my kind of fun.

way cool plot. Very interesting characters with very out there problems. I don't understand why she likes Ryoki instead of Shinogu because the two are birds with the same brain.

It seems to me that the girl is in the category of cloudy mind, greedy and insensitive. Even when she got her own boyfriend, she's still going around and "caring" for other guys so much so that she has to hug her old flame to tell him that she still cares. While he boyfriend's worried about her, she's going around worrying about other boys. Didn't she realize that other boys like her and if she kept being nice to them, she just gives them more hopes and it would b impossible for them to get over her. If she's realy nice she should let them go and find another girl and move on with their lives. The author went into extreme to portrait her as an 'unusual' caring and nice person, and yet how annoying it is that main girl always has to be suspiciously dense. It's not like there is something right and wrong or nice and evil about wanting to be loved by lots of guys, i dont want to judge that. However, she needs her boyfriend to tell her to look at him only and not have an eye for other boys is pure dumb. The fact that she over concerns herself over others' affair too much meaning she doesnt love her boyfriend wholeheartedly. I think the guy is a tyrant (typical super-duper cool, smart, rich, controlled, jealous and protective guy of shoujo manga) but I feel sympathetic for him. He loves her more and for a long time, and yet she's so dump to realize his feelings. Never does naive and greedy come in such an convenient way.
