Better for younger readers
When I first started reading this, I was still 12 or 13. It completely appealed to me (so did all the other mangas this mangaka did) but now, to be honest, it's kind of bad. Cliches everywhere. I hate how they get together so fast. She's boring. He's boring. The end. Art is good I guess. I used to worship the art that Aikawa Saki does but now, it's just overly shoujo for me. All her characters look the same, that's what I'm saying. If you want an interesting story, this is not the manga for you.
typical... but loving it
this is shoujo manga it is extremely predictable but i love it the characters are cute and likeable, especially the Haruna brothers i cant help but swoon when they're there ^/////^ the heroine does cry quite a bit, but it definitely could be worse
and its soooo cute, you just cant help but continue reading cause everything's so cute
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
especially when Kousuke is trying to get Hotaru to forgive him :3
but if you're looking for something original dont bother reading this

So far it's going well...
There isn't much to complain, the story is as expected for a shoujo, while the characters are dynamic with their own idiosyncrasies. I keep hoping for more interplay between Haruna-sensei and Hotaru, espically since Kousuke keeps putting the needs of his ex-girlfriend ahead of Hotaru....

What's wrong with people?
I thought this was really great! I love how the story is going. I thought the male characters had a refreshingly nice personality, and the art was the really nice. I like how the story is cute yet still serious, it reminds me a lot like "Girl Got Game" My only qualm at all about this is it kind of focuses on the relathionship drama too much, and Hotaru could stand to be a little less inoccent... But I still think it has a lot of charm. Oh well, to each their own, huh?

This made me want to kill myself...
I saw the art of the cover and was happy to find such bishie art. But then you read the story. Too fast paced. The characters are bland. The main character has no personality. NO ORIGINALITY WHAT SO EVER. No comedy, no doki doki moments, no smut, it lacks EVERYTHING. It's like a twelve year old with the hand of god decided to make a manga. Yes, the art is good. Proportional etc. BUT THE STORY IS SH*T. (Lol, am I allowed to cuss on here?)
One of the worst mangas EVER.
At first I really enjoyed this manga, but after reading the latest chapters it's getting stupid. I hate the female characters who try to sabotage her ex's relationship using cheap and dirty tricks. I don't like heroines who are full of mistrust and suspicion, and can't even stand up for herself. I hate male leads who refuse to explain things in detail so that they won't be misunderstood. Is it that hard to say that you heard your ex-girlfriend was abducted so you went to save her? And if your girlfriend got mad at you for that, she can find someone else if she gets jealous over you being a good enough person to save someone from being held hostage. And the heroine keeps fluctuating between two guys. Make your freaking decision. Don't be a hussy.
In short, the recent chapters really pissed me off and it sucked big time. I didn't even realize how bad this manga was until now. None of the characters are likeable at all, and the plot is way overused. I would not recommend this manga at all!
I think I get it...
I wonder why mangaka's always have characters like this. Maybe to show the guys strengths? To zoom in on them by making the heroine flawed?
When you think about it, it's easier that way.
Stupid girl with weak resolve + strong minded guy with strong resolve is possibly the easiest route in shoujo manga, and while its good for one shots, it doesn't really work for ongoing shoujo's.
Kinnda how after you laugh at something funny the first time, its not really funny anymore the 5th time.
The heroines flaws are shoved in your face every single chapter, while the main guy's strengths are thrown in to cover them. That's exactly what every cliche shoujo is with characters of this type. I quit after the classic (CLICHE CLICHE CLICHE) dumbass rapid fan girls showed up.

I don't get the appeal...
I'm sorry, but what exactly is good about this manga? The style is the almost exact same style you see in most shoujo/romance/school-life manga. There aren't many details and the art isn't proportional all the time. And the characters don't have good expressions. Erase the eyebrows and their faces look the same when angry, sad, happy, etc. No offence, there's really nothing special about the art. I don't even want to talk about the plot; it's just reused archetypes that are present in almost every single shoujo manga. If the readers already know the outcome of the story [it is obvious who Hotaru will end up with], the mangaka should do something to keep her readers's attention.
Anyone can draw well, but not everyone can make a good plot that can attract and keep readers. I will give this manga a little more time and give it a rating after I read a bit more. If it's this popular, there's a reason for it, right...?

As others have said, it's a cliche magnet but the artwork really makes up for it! It's a great shoujo for those who are just starting to get into shoujo manga or manga in general. I'm currently on chapter 13 and this far in to it, I give it a 6.5/10.
Im Aikawa Saki-biased. No matter how cliched it is, I will definitely love it.
Gahhh. Im speechless. The way Aikawa Saki draw her characters are really really prettyyyyyyyy omg it makes the story alive. lol
