Taishi stays at Rie's house because his parents work overtime. Rie thought that he was actually her real brother! Now, Taishi says that she's "idiotic now and then". People think of Taishi as cool and mature, but Rie knows that he's just a brat inside...

lolx. as expected of a shoujo manga. love, stupidity, rivalry, angst and all that stuff.

Yeah the male lead does remind me of Otani from Lovely Complex. and he's friggin hilarious but so damn dense. i really like him. i especially like him when he's all pissed mode. xD

The female lead is an okay. most female lead in shoujo are "plain looking" type anyways. but this one isnt as annoying as some. so she's likeable. and has anger problems. lolx. i guess.

i guess it's kind of predictable because you'll know they'll end up together but it has it's own twists. Kyohei kinda reminds me of otani from lovely complex of how dense and stupid a guy can be. lmaO! but in the end otani decided his future but i didn't know kyohei's. But it's a really good manga

wow i never thought i would REALLY like this manga. at first it may seem a typical shoujo. but when you read it more it has an appealing mixture. The characters are soo sweet and cute.

The manga is light and fun. One of the mangas i really love. I love the ending. And the scenes are not cheesy.

its worth reading for me.. ♥♥♥

I have to say that it was pretty cute and good, but things got too drama-ee for me towards the end. They totally should have ended the series at chapter 13.

this manga is so cliche it hurts. it has all the cliche things. popular guy but dense as feck and in this case he is also dumb. stupid who is in love with him who was plain but did her best to become beautifull and so the list goes on and on and on. this is just some sucky manga that gets boring after the first 5 pages of chapter 1. you can just look at the pictures without reading it n you know what happens so predictable is this manga.

This is as typical as any shoujo manga can get. It's so obvious at times that you can just gloss over the pictures and still get it. I'm quite disappointed. If you've read at least 20 shoujo mangas so far, then i'll guarantee you that you'll get bored. Fast.
Do not read the manga. It's a complete waste of time, unless this is the first shoujo manga that you will read.

I thought it was it was really sweet, but it was kind of typical, but still really sweet and cute. It was one of the first manga I read, and yet to this day I still enjoy it[:

Very overrated

Typical shoujo characters. Lovesick girl and a dense guy.
Average shoujo elements. Sitting beside each other, Valentine chocolate, first date cold...
The potential love rivals are also typical and shallow.
It is cute but neither really touching nor especially funny.
Luckily it's short enough so it doesn't become too repetitive and the author doesn't need to bring in more shoujo cliché therefore it's still enjoyable but definitely nothing exceptional.
