Can you say child molester? I sure can. If you like the student/teacher relationship, like I do, give this one a miss. It felt too much like creepy sexual harassment than attraction.

The art was nice and the prodigy was interesting but in general the manga was stupid. Nothing new at all. It's really not worth it.

Personally, I found it very cute.
I mean, it's quite rare that the shoujo heroine is a tsundere and a child prodigy at the same time. xD
I also like how she's kinda socially awkward, but tries her best to everything in the right orderly way.

I think the dialogue and story is just fine too, with even some wacky scenarios thrown in sometimes for good fun.

Overall, pretty good read if you like relationships between a cold genius tsundere and her teacher. wink

I should stop picking shoujo just because the art cover looks nice...
The art inside is nice, but nothing too interesting.
I can say the shoujo is cute and pretty, but the teacher isn't nearly as "beautiful" as they all refer him to be...
The dialogue is stupid, and poorly constructed.
Everything in unoriginal, cliched and idiotic.
As another commenter has said, it would have better been a oneshot.
What can you drag about this for 4 whole volumes, and still be ongoing?
Sheesh... Some people don't know where to stop...

So, back to the manga...
It made me want to tear hairs out of my head.
And today was a good hair day!
It made me so mad... I mean, I'm all for teacher/student relationships (though I have found very few titles that I enjoyed), but this is just...
It's exactly the reason why I stay away from shoujo, unless it's from certain mangaka-s...

Do yourself a favour, and don't try this...
This manga is pointless.

I'm giving it a 1.7 for the occasionally cute art.

I like the art and although I don't usually like teacher-student relationship mangas, this one is really adorable. The art is so different! I'm always looking for shoujo mangas with different, refreshing art, as in no more large sparkly eyes or tiny noses and sharp chins. Anyways, the characters are so funny. Recommended.

I thought it was pretty good, but it would be better if it was just a oneshot. or two chapters long. something short. otherwise, i think the story would be overdone.

Some of the humour is funny, but some stuff is just weird-creepy. Overall the story is pretty generic and predictable. The art isn't terrible, but not enough to make it really enjoyable to read.

I should say I don't get what's so great about student-teacher relationships in shoujo manga to begin with... it's not a theme I like, so in that sense this manga isn't for me anyway. But still, there have been other student-teacher series/one-shots that I liked better than this one. It doesn't really contribute anything new to the genre.
