read the whole series in one go, and i must say it does have its poignant moments. the art grows from the first few volumes, as does the story. although the pace was kind of slow and some moments could've been dramatized for more effect, the story was good overall. touching, but being dragged across 17 volumes does get a bit redundant. the morals of this story fit nicely with its mood and atmosphere, but in real life diligence and the pursuing of dreams is not equivalent to success.

All to the end it was like life, with ups and downs, good times and bad times. It was AWSOME!

I don't know exactly when I started reading it, but ever since then this manga had made a really big impression on me.
The characters grew with time, and they grew closer to my heart at the same...
You must read it till the end to fully capture the whole picture of this wonderful work, and not just spew nonsense after reading a few chapters, like so many others do.
I'm not gonna rant about all the good and the not so good parts of the story, after all, it's everyone's own preferences that make them like/dislike things, I'm just gonna say this:
For me, this is one of my favorite works, something that just caught me. I'm glad, that I read this manga, and I think there are lots of others, who think the same.
Funny thing is, some of the situations the poor guy got into are somewhat similar to what I experienced when encountering women:-)
All in all, it was worth the time, sweat (when I got worked up thinking-COME ON!?! DON'T BE SO STUPID, DO IT LIKE THIS, NOT LIKE THAT!!! but well, I did even stupider things when in love, so... LOL) and tears I shed during the time I read this manga.
P.S.: Thanks for the EMS team for bringing this manga to us!

I was reading lot's of manga lately. But, yesterday I found this one. I almost forgot about sleeping, but now I've reached the last translated chapter, and I can't wait for the next one. Yes, it seems an obvious story, and what a lame character.

However, it has tons of fun and I really enjoy reading it. Like the drama and all the funny situations Nobita gets into.

The plot and the setting is just too similar to the classic maison ikkoku except this time around, more ecchi, protagonist more pathetic than anything else I've ever read. Humours are cheaply done with very generic situational comedy.

I got bored after 3 volumes... if you think this is good, read maison ikkoku - at least the humours are more well-done and the characters' interaction/feeling are more reasonable.

The romantic aspect is a bit wacky but then again so is the nature of the characters and their relationships. Overall its a funny and enjoyable light read.

Great story love the art work the only thing that makes it a difficult read it that the main male character is the biggest wuss alike and he needs to grow a pair. the female lead is ok hot headed but funny in my book.
If you can stand watching a man with nothing between his legs then its a good read,

This manga is pretty much nonsense that takes on forever without further development. Lame main male character who look and act like an id*** even though surrounded by cute girls.

If you like reading manga that allows the main female character to be pushed down in a hotel or car, touched and dated by other boys and the main male character would just look and do nothing and worse the main female character would also do nothing but cry (ohhh little shy girl) then this is for you.

A lesson about Love

Many of you may disagree with me, but although this kind if genre of manga is sadly overused, lame MC, pretty girls he likes, misunderstanding that happens, etc, etc, but strangely enough this is the only manga that i ever read that actually made me cry, sure as lame as it may be the story may be dragged a little too long, but there's a lot lesson of life here in this manga alone than in any other manga...

All in all the biggest thing this manga gives to me is a lesson about life and love, about how love does not only beautiful but also sad and full with struggle some times, but if you really love someone, that's Masuo-san for you....
Try it... it doesn't hurt you know

Reocurring Plot

I enjoyed the characters quite a bit but I did rate it down because the plot was so cylical, he does something bad, she overreacts from a misunderstanding, friend makes it all better...
