From Aerandria Scans:

Ryuu, a super-businesslike transfer student from England--with black hair, and blue eyes just arrived!

Splendid! At first, I never thought of picking this one up and read it but after days of consideration, I started to read it out of boredom. But it turned out FAR better than how I thought it would. It is very romantic and explains everything that a teenager girl would like to experience at least once in a lifetime. It got my heart go all "doki, doki," throughout the manga. But be aware that this manga revolves around the issue of : "Are you ready for the next level?" Or "Let's do MORE," kind of thing. Sometimes there would be times when you would get irritated with the heroine's mother's reaction towards the couple's skinship. How open she is towards their progress in relationship. But putting that all aside, this manga is is truly a romantic one. If you are not very much comfortable with their sudden progress in skinship I would recommend for you to read 'Hana ni Arashi' as a warm-up.

I lovelovelove this manga so much!! The couple is so beautiful!! I cried so much during chapters 13-14(ok, i was listening to christina perri's thousand years during from the sex scene to almost very so the song's also to blame, lol).

Well, I wasn't a fan of Ryuu's forceful actions but in the end he DIDN'T FORCE her to have sex with him! He wasn't the worst guy ever... Because he DID ASK, in the end, before the real action. He was gentle, very gentle.

This series reminds me a lot of Hana ni Arashi, except this one is more realistic and serious, plus the ending made me cry (it was the perfect ending). The pacing and angst were just right and the chapter and volume endings made you want to continue reading (I hadn't planned to read it all in one sitting). The art was lovely, except I did not like how the eyes were drawn. Overall, I highly recommend this series and Hana ni Arashi. smile

One thing that I find kills a good manga for me is when the characters are suddenly changed so that it makes the plot easier to push forward. There are several that I recall doing just that.

Here we have a girl that is not playing hard to get but who is hard to get, and she remains so for the entire manga. The male lead is also constant though he is a very unrealistic character he remains a dreamlike character for many females.

The interplay between the two leads and with the side characters at times is very humorous. This is not painful humor but fun mainly playing on the female lead Yukino's weakness with having no real ability to deal with guys.

The romantic aspects are also well written and told so that it is both humorous and a feel good type story. While there are many people that like conflict and trials and many that like horror and other genres this is truly romantic comedy in it's simplest form. More focusing on romance.

Overall a well told story with an enjoyable ending and one that I can, have, and will reread many times.

this manga deserves my praise. ill have to disagree with the other commentators. this manga has a good plotwist and it satisfied me until the end. the dialogues are vey cliche and
Spoiler (highlight to view)
when ryuu went to his country for 3years the mangaka made sure there was breathing space for them to reflect on the path they chose


and i believe its not a fast romance (the girl did not fall for the guy that easily)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! i'll give it a 100/10

I'm really grateful that sensei didn't add some love triangle for added drama, but rather let the natural development in relationships be enough for them to overcome. This may make some think the story is boring, but i actually found it to be slow paced, which is right up my alley.
The characters personality are quite funny to "see", and it was refreshing to see in shoujo/smut a hero who is not an A-hole right from the start. He's not afraid to tell/show her exactly how he feels about her, and instead of forcing himself on her, he makes her accustomed to him a little at a time. Honestly if i were her, i would have let him eat me all up within the 2 first chapters....which would probably make him not want me as much as he likes her. *LOL*

I was a tad annoyed with the girl at the beginning... you would think a teenage girl would not be so 'unfeeling' if she is in love (I don't care how innocent she was supposed to be!)
As for young entrepreneur, it is a bit exaggerated to be believable, but then you have Napster & Facebook's creators as real life example...
Overall, very lovable story, no annoying cliche love triangle, no unbelievable tragedy... And a lot of light-hearted wisdom, it's a great read!

Yep.. DONE with it after a day... I mustt say this manga is very romantic, and the characters have pure personality( i dont really know how 2 explain it but yeah, their pure) not so smutty, and it's cute how the guy tease the girl ... I love the stpry because it doesnt have any typical shoujo antagonist and situation.. BUT despite that, this manga doesnt have any events where you 'll remember ... I think it doesnt have a strong backgroud in every chapters, it's like it is already in ur plate, wht you just have to do is eat it. Though the characters have strong personality, as i said the stories are weak, but it will give you a good read... So it is still one of my recommended series...(^_^)

I preferred the manga-ka's other works with a little more realism and depth in comparison to this one, its all very usual shoujo with the typical shoujo plot devices, the summary makes it sound almost tragic but I was kinda disappointed at a lack of drama in my opinion (I personally like drama in manga) I found the characters themselves lacking in any kind of realism, I didn't for one minute believe their oh so perfect relationship and the characters themselves were difficult to relate to.

I started this manga because I read another one of the mangka's works "Ai Hime - Ai to Himegoto" and I absolutely adored it. Seriously, that manga was so cute and perfect.

This, however, is more mediocre. It was cute in parts, but for some reason it didn't get me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside unlike with others of her mangas. The female lead was SO innocent for a sixteen year old and the male lead was so... way too far ahead of his time. I know it's a just a silly romance manga, so I forgive many things, but did he have to be an amazing business man as well as a student? They could've just made him eighteen and a bit older than her.

But, don't let me put you off too much. It's still a cute story, just slightly lacking in character development.
