Description
From Which Scanlations:

Shuusei Kugayama is the "prince" of his high school, but he always turns down confessions--including one from Aoi Nishimori's best friend. Although she initially hates him for this, when Shuusei moves in next door to Aoi, who lives alone, she starts thinking that he might not be such a bad guy after all...

while reading this manga, i really don't know whether to hate it or like it which is a rare thing for me. the girl's obviously desperate and the guy's clearly a jerk but i can't say that i hate them. it's like at one point, i don't like what the the main characters are doing but then, at another point, i can't help but like them again. it's like i'm totally attracted to them even if i'm irritated with what they're doing. so in my point of view, the characters especially the protagonists have there flaws but they also have good points that can be admired too. and i think, based on what their characters are, they're a match made in heaven.

it's a good manga and i recommend you to read it. i really can't explain why but there is this "magnet" in it that won't let me stop reading it.

I actually like this. C'mon, it's at least a little funny. I have to agree, Shuusei's really a jerk and everything, but this is shoujo. Princely types always run hot and cold - that's how the attraction keeps going. Considering this is a shoujo, we shouldn't have such high expectations. As long as it's amusing and gets a few smirks out of you, I'd say this was a job well done...

My advice to those of you who don't like this is to move on from shoujo. If you're seriously tired of slow, weepy heroines and jerk prince types, move on. There's still seinen and josei out there - have your pick! It'd be more worth your time than reading this and hating it the whole time. Unless, of course, you actually like this stuff.

I honestly thought I'd really like this a lot... in the beginning anyway. It seemed like it would be the type of story that twisted cliche into something a little better. However, those hopes just slowly fell as it dragged on and on... and on.

Typical shoujo with a naive female lead and a handsome, yet jerk male lead. I was hearing comments from before that L-DK is very cliche but you see, some titles take cliches and they make them enjoyable. But not in this case.

The first volume was entertaining. I said to myself, "This is not that bad."
But once I proceeded to the second volume and later, I felt so bored. It's like the author is forcing for various situations to happen. And some situations are just unbelievable. At first the author seemed that she was trying to achieve realism but she failed. For example,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Aoi and Shuusei are only 16 and they are so damn independent. They are able to live alone without any problems. They pay the rent, they buy anything they want... How is that possible? Even if your parents can send you money, they cannot send you THAT much. It would be more excusable if the characters were college students, then okay.

And it's just so predictable. I mean, you know that third people will step between Aoi and Shuusei and drama will begin.

The characters are just so boring. Aoi is your typical naive heroine, just one level above from the super stupid heroines of Mayu Shinjo. At first she does not care for Shuusei but later she falls for him.
Shuusei... He is just an idiot. Ok, he has looks and he attracts tons of girls. Aoi on the other hand is simple but she is interested to be in a serious relationship with a guy in general. Yet Shuusei goes to her, he is flirting with her, Aoi is blushing (and of course she is charmed by his looks), she thinks that he has fallen for her but in the end he tells her not to fall for him and he rejects her. Why in the first place Shuusei flirts with her? Just to play? Just to kill his time? Even so, he targets Aoi a lot. He is just pathetic and immature like Shin from Goong.

The artwork is alright, nothing that great.

By Ohmigoddd, I don't mean it in a good way. The characters kind of suck. My opinion-wise.
Let me throw a BIG pro first. The art is really awesome. This is why I'm giving it an 8. I'm so lenient.
Plot is cliche. Expect the usual stuff.
Everyone has a bland personality except...Well, there are some interesting people. Just not Aoi, Shuusei, and Wataru.

edit feb9;
So it got updated. I'm changing my rating obviously.
I hate Shuusei even more. Read the chapters for yourself.
Aoi is just plain ignorant now.
The story should wrap up soon. It's just boring now.

i still can't say whether i like it or hate it...cliche or not...

if i put myself in either of their position. i probably will handle it the same or slightly different.
because it's not like i can exactly see(or feel?) the other person's point of view
much more...read their mind, to know and do "the right thing to say and do", isn't it?

i can understand why Shuusei is acting this confusing jerk.
..given that he too, is trying to restrain himself from falling in love with Aoi.
i can also empathize with Aoi trying to stop her feelings because
she doesn't want to be a burden to Shuusei,

but as a girl...
we all know that it's not easy to suppressed "liking someone"
especially if that person is our "first love" isn't it? ;D
no wonder she later on confess to him. = 3=

what i can't forgive about Shuusei is how he was able to leave Aoi
after she goes back to him (after all he had done to her).
he sure does deserve the title of "whimp" >=DDD

I'm forcing my self to read this because I want to keep up with it. Normally, I would just drop these types and go. But, the author is taking so long to explain the main guys past and the heroine is sooo desperate!!. Long story short, the guy is boring, he's never jealous, he is extremely childish and clueless. Don't get me started on Aoi, move on chick!! you guys were not a couple for you to be that love sprung!! It's so sad sometimes and the author needs to take the advice of burying the main guy in the back of the apartment!!

pls...if this manga ends in few more chapters im really gonna kill someone.
the male lead's issues can't be resolved in just one go.
there are just a lot of things to settle.

so typical of shoujo mangas tho, good men finish last. poor sanjou-san =/
i kinda understand others who start to hate the male lead, but he, himself, has things on his shoulders. so let's just tolerate him a bit.
i like the female lead. i haven't find her annoying...yet.

P.S. i think people who comment like "this is so cliche" are so cliche.

the mangaka can only drag this story on for so long. i just don't understand what's taking her so long in getting to the point. shuusei's "mysterious past" is long overdue. i don't know if i can keep reading this manga for much longer if it doesn't stop going around in circles
the dude doesn't even get openly jealous. ugh he's so boring

i am very tempted to just stop reading it until the whole series is scanlated. It's that frustrating.

Seriously, the main man should crawl into a hole and die. I think that she should take Sanjou-san and tell the mr. Sob Story to go bury himself behind the apartments, because he is getting on my nerves. Aoi does not deserve the nuisance that he has created.
