Yeah, the artwork isn't too nice. It'll definitely bother the reader a few times but it shouldn't be a reason to drop reading this because the plot and character development are great.

I can't explain why but I feel as if Hanada and Sakura's relationship was natural or very believable. Their situation is cliche, that's a given. The whole step-brother thing.. with the family.. But the development of their relationship is very nice and natural.

Read it if you are a shoujo enthusiast!!

I can't stop reading it! The story is progressing soooo slowly but its entertaining. The two main characters are arguing most of the time and theirs not much going on in terms of romance (although i'm sure they'll eventually fall for each other). Despite all this, i'm loving this story a lot, very entertaining and the character development is great, you truly begin to understand the feelings of all the characters. Very unique story.

Really great!!! I love it lol the art isn't all that great but as you read on it seems to get better and you won't notice it. Actually it really grew on me and it fit perfectly with this. So don't let the art stop you from reading this!!! I almost passed it over thank goodness I didn't. LOL I don't know why but one of my favorite characters is the guys mother even though she only appears like 2 times so far. She's really interesting. Favorite Part is at the end of Volume 6 <3 and the beginning of Volume 7 <3 XDDDD

I love Kirai! Ahaha, laugh. It's a pun, because in Japanese, kirai means "hate". Ahahaha, get it? Well, I just knew I had to write a review after finishing reading all the raw volumes. It's a great series. OK, so it doesn't have the most amazing art. It's unique, however. It gives the series the tone it needs. Volumes 1-8 were fantastic... However, once you get to volume 9... Um, well, let me put it this way... I SKIPPED THE ENTIRE VOLUME. Yes, it made me that angry. However, after Shin Hanada finishes his big bitch fit (apologies for language), the ending is very pleasing. Of course, I'm not saying anything. Wait for the scanlations.
I have to give this a 9/10, because of it's well-played smut scenes, character development, and story. However, that last point is taken off because of the climax near the end (NO, I AM NOT JUST BEING SORE BECAUSE IT'S NOT HAPPY HAPPY) and some of the character trait flaws that are too big to imagine. Example... "OMG, YOU'RE HAVING SEX WITH HANADA-SENPAI! NO WAY! I WANNA HAVE SEX WITH HIM TOO! Even just once~" Like, wow. This is a thing of... "How low can you go." Some of the characters, even side characters, seemed a little, um... Well, yeah. You get the point.

It doesn't feel old or cliche, even if the setting is quite popular. I like both lead characters- they are funny and have their strong and weak points. The art isn't that bad, but you have to get used to it. It's a very good romantic comedy.

I had a very good time reading it.

Even though the art is totally unconventional, ugly to some. I think like many of the previous comments that it somehow suits the story. The artist put a really unique spin to the plot... i won't spoil, but the plot device have been cunningly used is all i will say.

eh, it's slow going. a good read, though, kinda.. in the fact that you need to keep reading so you can find out what's going to happen. (in my case at least)

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i'm really annoyed with how it's going, though.. i mean, really? i thought matsumoto had more guts.. and she gets plain ANNOYING! GOD! seriously, she's worse than the fan girls when she follows him all the time and yells at him. just leave him alone and go find a boyfriend.. ><' but i guess it doesn't work out like that haha.. and hanada IS pretty, but seriously.. jerk.. the romance isn't going as i would like it to, but we'll see.

the artwork isn't really that bad, imo, it grew on me. hanada actually looks pretty good. (: oh, and hanata kinda reminds me of rei from mars.. only not as screwed up and more of a manwhore.. haha..

Hehe this one was really fun to read. I read the eng scans and just skimmed through the raws. It's cute but I don't think I would take it seriously if it was completed in english @.@ idk. great manga though.

I find this very interesting and can't wait for the next chapter to come out. I also would like to say that I happen to like these artworks. People shouldn't judge the manga base on the artwork. There are different types of manga artworks so of course people will have different taste. You can't expect everybody to like the same artwork as you do. So I kindly ask you people to Please not say you dislike the artwork because I feel that is an insult to me. Also to the author and the other people who happens to like this kind of artwork. Even if it might not be much, but there are still some instead of none.

The premise has been done (poorly) a million times before in shoujo manga so I didn't have high hopes when I started this series. Fortunately, I was quite pleasantly surprised. The story focuses on the interaction between player Hanada and the headstrong Matsumoto, but it does not degenerate into cheap romance (At least not yet...I've only read one volume so far). Rather, their relationship is complex and interesting. As more is revealed about Hanada's history and personality you begin to understand that his actions are not as random or whimsical as they first appear. For her part, Matsumoto manages to become more understanding without sacrificing her pride or dignity.

I'm not really sure why this is listed as 'smut'. Maybe it gets smuttier later on, but while the first volume does have a couple sex scenes they are brief, not very detailed, and certainly not the focus of the manga.

The weakest point of this manga is the artwork. Characters are drawn crudely and backgrounds are often simple or nonexistent. Still, I can easily overlook mediocre artwork if there is a good story and interesting characters, and on that count Kirai delivers.
