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.

My Ideal Boyfriend

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm totally loving Oyamada!!!
He is such a kind, understanding and lovable boyfriend.
I love how he genuinely treasures Ozawa.
My favorite lines from Oyamada that made my heart skip a beat are

Ozawa: I have this feeling things will change if we get married...
I know it sounds stupid. We're at the right age, after all.

Oyamada: "If we get married, well I guess something will change."

Ozawa: Ah. Right.

Oyamada: "Your surname" >.<

Oyamada :" I don't intend to ever leave you so... well, I don't anything will change between us if we get married someday"

This manga is really pure, not innocent, but pure. Its sooo adorable and just goes with the flow. I love all the characters and their weirdness (especially the fact that we don't really know what the brother looks like. Lol.) Can't wait to finish it.

Its strength relies on how simple it is: there aren't forced interactions, it's all comedy and the romance is likeable. As the manga goes on, however, I feel a little detached from the characters, and I think there's nothing more to say for this manga right now.

The story of the world's most adorable couple   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Bonnouji is just so effortlessly cute. Usually, romance manga force feeds the reader love in a "I'M ADORABLE, GOSHDARNIT!" kind of way, but Bonnouji just lets two people live their lives, and the end result is ridiculously charming.
Bonnouji is realistic. It has great pacing and doesn't dillydally with forced, cliched conflict (for example, having an ex show up right after the main couple gets together). I also love the way the mangaka parallels Ozawa and Oyamada's relationship with the development of Oyamada's room, the eponymous bennouji. It's just a cool little metaphor, and the mangaka handles it really well, so I thoroughly appreciate it.
Overall, this is a great slice of life romance. Super adorable and funny. Great work.

Simple

Calling this manga 'boring' would be an overstatement. It's like the day to day, thoughts and feelings of the characters and how they progress. While the plot is just really simple and neat, it avoids cliches. Not exactly 'refreshing' though- just a change from the common shoujo we read.

I wasn't crazy over this manga, but it did have somewhat of a realistic touch, and I guess that's the part of it that I liked.

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!

An Interesting Read   
Rating: N/A

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.

Very good one

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

It really got 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
