Description
From: Easy Going Scans

Fate brings two people who live in the same condo together on a typical afternoon. Ozawa (26) has just broken up with her boyfriend of five years and was in the process of trying to rebuild her life when she meets Oyamada who lives a couple floors below her. He is somewhat of a loner although he does have a few friends and his room is cluttered with all the random stuff that his impulse shopper brother sends him. Ozawa takes an interest with all the things in his room and the two start a friendship that slowly turns into something more.

Like a real romance

This is so freaking adorable! I read up to the current chapter (21) in one go. I really like all the characters, it's funny, and just such a cute romance. There's none of the annoying plot devices you see in romance. No one is jumping to wild conclusions/misunderstandings, too stupid to see the obvious, really dramatic, or anything else totally unrealistic. All the characters feel real and it's like you're seeing the progress of a real relationship. As others said, it's really refreshing! Not to mention I'd love hanging out in an awesome room like that. You never know what they'll pull out.

I just wish I knew how old the male lead was! I'm assuming he's younger, but the curiosity is kind of killing me. I hope we find out at some point!

This will definitely be a breath of fresh air for anyone who enjoys romance manga. It doesn't have the typical idealistic romance setting, nor does it contain ridiculous amounts of ecchi from a high school setting manga.

What it does contain is a plain romance, in an interesting and unique setting, between two characters you can relate to. Anyone even remotely interested should read it, as it's fairly early in it's serialization and quick to catch up to. The only downside it the slow release speed.

I won't say it's amazing. It is really basic, just shows a plain relationship.

And you have no idea how good it feels. This is an atypic romance manga in nearly every sense of the word (basically the only un-original thing is that there's a man and a woman...)
Too often romance mangas focus on various and totally stupid and irrealistic difficulties that the couple encounters. Here there's nothing of the sort, and you feel refreshed after each and every chapter.

A 10 for me

I postponed reading this for a long time because I read the 'career woman' tag. Well I am glad I did that so I could swoop all 13 chapters in one time. BUT IT"S STILL NOT ENOUGH!
This series is amazing... the characters are cute, they radiate warm feelings all over me (lol)
and what's more there's no ecchi, proving that even a straight healthy young man like me can enjoy a series without sex jokes.
anyway I don't want to halt you too long, just hit this Manga already
I give it a 8.5

... is what you will think. Definetely.
The plot doesn't rush, it's more episodic, but you get to know each character, slowly but steadily.
No dramatic events, just a man and a woman who get to know each other, spend time together every once in a while, no annoying rivals, or things along the line, just a bunch of pages of sweetness and fun each chapter.

sweet and funny: truly a gem 10/10

Basically the perfect romance if you just want to enjoy the read and not have to think or follow all the details. After tons of stories with arranged marriages, random bullies everywhere, and the chick/dude always thinking the other is cheating, I find this to be a VERY refreshing change.... I really hope nothing dramatic happens in it... at most maybe the ex trys to pick her up(and is rejected rather quickly)... its the only amount of drama I can see that wouldn't ruin the feeling the story has had so far. 10/10 and if it doesn't destroy itself, it'll probably be in my favorite romances. great read.

And by "rather quickly" I mean ex only gets his face 1 chapter and then goes poof leaving them to their comedic sweetness smile

As other comment says, this is pretty nice manga with realistic and mature characters with also nice pace.

I'm worried about the future though, you could only do so much until you have to went the path of stupid over dramatized misunderstanding or some sort. Hope this would not gone that path, I'd rather have nice short manga than long train wreck.

For now, it's good.

It's only the beginning, but the story as a whole has a nice feel to it, and i am really digging this story, from what I've read so far. Nobody is over-dramatic(as of yet), nor is anyone (yet) excessively stupid or prone to over the top misunderstandings that are impossible for anyone with even moderate intelligence to make in the real world (as happens way too much in manga already).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The girl is heartbroken over her long time boyfriend breaking up with her, and the male counterpart is simply a lonely guy who seems to rarely leave home,but definitely not a loser, more like an eccentric than anything else, and a cool one at that. Both of them are surprisingly down to earth, and the romance potential, while pretty obvious, is still rather charming (call me a sappy romantic in a 29 year old man's body i guess) And the special twist of the story, his apartment being a wonderland of mysterious boxes that can hold anything from high grade porn to to toys, or cookware, gives the apartment a kind of wonderland feel.

And finally. the distinct lack of over the top awkward situations (at least so far) makes the manga a refreshing change from your average story. Anyway, for what it's worth that's what I think so far.
