Even though it has been running for a VERY long time, it has only reached 113 chapters. I've actually stopped reading this for 2 years, so I was shocked how it has only progressed a tiny bit. This has been an amazingly long journey. But every time I come back to this manga, I have enjoyed Yuu's cuteness no less than when I started. Too bad Dynasty finally gave up on it.

10/10

First I enjoyed it.. really.. you can trust me about that. But after some vol. And when Yuu goes for severall month to another town to live with her mother.. just after that, I realized how boring a manga becomes when there's no evolving plot

a nice manga that would complement any bookcase full of manga.
the art work is the moste endering factor the girls are very cutely done and the guys have the odd air of wierdness about them. the story is very nice although it is indeed much slower then many other manga's
With that said i would highly recommend this to anyone who likes this genre but would be hesitant about people who dont enjoy it as much.
Still its a good read for all.!

Lame pacing

It's good at the beginning, i enjoyed it. But the pacing is so damn slow. You can only try and milk so much out of this series. Adding new girls gave me an extra headache.
The pacing is too f'ing slow, it's do unreleastic too. The main character pisses me off beyond belief.

What everyone below me said is pretty much the sum of it, seriously this is one of the first romance comedy mangas a read back in 2004 and its still not done and its still doing the same old slow shit thats why i keep stop reading this for a few months than go back. this manga was great in the beginning but later on way later on it made me hate slow romance manga and even more it made me hate indecisive, super weak willed male leads.....

The manga, so far, has been one of my favorite of romance shounen due to its honest and calm atmosphere of the story. The characters are well built and the drawings are quite something, but agreeing with some people here, I think the story lacks pace while keeping the conclusion. If it's like this, the readers seem kind of forced to follow through the story without considering their real-time track, making them in waiting for the progress that is near forever to be seen. I don't compel the story to be through irresponsibly, but adding more characters at this point is, harshly speaking, pointless. What is the point of adding a foreigner into the circle when it's clearly the time for Yuu and Mugi alone, except that there's some kind of intention of pulling out some fanservice? Are we going to see Yuu and Mugi get married? To me, Yuu seems to be the real antagonist here. It is not an innocence of lovers anymore, it is already an ignorance, irresponsible manner to the relationship. Some might see this as obstruction to get through; some, just like me, are getting impatient.

like all about romance!

oh I also love the environment
of this manga!
natural I mean I live in a place
far from nature somehow it makes
me want to go to a place
that is relaxing and less pollution.

First of all, don't let the description fool you. There's nothing serious about an adventure of love. This manga tells the stories of the everyday life of a couple of lovebirds, and it's good that way. And hell, the protagonist isn't so indecisive as in many other shounen. If you are looking for a stimulating manga, don't ever read this. If you want some peaceful moments in a lovely setting, then this is what you looking for. 9/10 by me.

the story between the mugi and yuu is the main one, but the side stories with all the people around them are cool, and make the manga more interesting. right now im on ch. 113, and i haven't gotten bored yet. anyway, i think its got a great story and art if you're ok with its slow pace.
